On the original Dual Cam design that uses U-bolts to secure to the tongue frame (rather than attaching via bolts that are drilled into the frame), you will see that the hinged arms that the weight bar cams ride on are attached to the frame via thick metal plates. These plates bolt to the bottom surface of the frame using the U-bolts. There are 3 or 4 pairs of holes in each plate that the U-bolts go through, and you select the best two sets of holes when attaching them so that the U-bolts do not interfere with LP bottle brackets of other things on the frame. The 3 or 4 sets of holes are not symmetrical end to end. This plate can be unbolted from the hinged arm and turned around the move the holes to different locations relative to the hinge point.
I believe that on my 2016 Classic, we unbolted one swing to change the direction of the plate, but used the other one "as is". Each case may be different and may need to be fine tuned based upon which weight bars you are using (heavier bars are longer than lighter bars) and the angle you set the hitch head at (more or less downward tilt). I am using 556/600 lb. bars that are the shortest since I am towing with a 2500 truck. If I was towing with a 1500
truck, I may have used the 750/800 lb. or 1000 lb. bars that are longer.
It takes a little time and experimenting to dial it in (we had the swap the arm plate after the first try didn't work quite right on one side), but it's not hard. Good Luck!
