Have misaligned the saddle somehow.
we've taken the bars out to park the
trailer in its camping spot and now we
can't set the bar in properly, so the
straight end of it sits on the saddle
And the curved end overshoots it.
We are going to be driving for the next
8 days on the highway and going through
some windy terrain so I wanted to
keep them, but in this situation am
I better off without them? I saw the
AS dealer whack a saddle into place with
a hammer once but don't want to make
things worse. Thanks ahead of time
for any tips. At a rest stop in Ohio
headed to Indiana, seems ok so far.
You don't really give us enough information like type of hitch, type of sway bar, etc.
However, from what you have written, like Jack, I think you have a late model Reese Dual Cam, and if you do, it sounds like the cam is not in the correct place on the weight distribution bar.
If the above is true, you may have a bent cam rod, which will happen if the hitch is not set up correctly, and you make a tight turn. Again, if all of this is true, the cam rod will have to be replaced, but until that can happen, I would advise you to proceed as you are with caution.
All of this is too many "ifs" for my comfort, so a picture of the problem area would really help us to help you.
