Reese HP DC setup on my 93 F250 this evening

We took the 320SR to an unused dead-end road this evening and set up the WD hitch on my truck for it.

I took measurements at all the wheel wells before and after hooking it all up.

Un-hitched:

LF- 36 1/2 RF- 36 1/2

LR- 37 1/2 RR- 37 15/16

Sunny (All leveled up):

24" to top of A-frame

23 1/2 to top of rear bumper


Hitched up:

LF- 36 1/2 RF- 36 1/2

LR- 36 1/2 RR- 37 1/4

Sunny:

24" to top of A-frame

23 1/2 to top of rear bumper

I took it for a test drive and it pulled flawlessly! No sway on the interstate and it took the country roads around here great!

Kitty forgot to bring the camera, or we'd have pix to share.

One other thing... Our ball mounts are slightly different. I will take pics of each one and post them. Hers is tilted back farther than mine and it makes it difficult to uncouple. Both of us have 7 links below the snap-up brackets and balls are both 25 1/2 inches above ground.

I "didn't" know I was supposed to bring it You usually have it in the truck most of the time. But, go ahead, blame it on the blonde

Your fender numbers on your 3/4 ton Ford are golden. And having the TT that level... it only happens once in a while to be that perfect.

Some day, make it to the scale and we can see how the tape measure compares to the scale.

Kitty's head tilt being too much. Yes this can be a very big problem. It's late tonight and I think your camping with the older Ford doing the pulling, so you good to go.

I'll type you back over the weekend why on Kitty's it may be doing that. We also need to talk her 1 ton suspenion. It acts different then yours unless your older one had helper springs too. Does it? Some of the older 3/4 tons I "tought" had helper springs. The new ones do not. Some now use a progressize thicker leaf.

However with that extra diesel tank in her F350, do you know when hitched are you kissing the helper springs or up off them? Hers may be lower do to the extra fuel weight.

Happy Camping

Have a good trip

John

PS the wise crack I thick you where poking Kitty didn't post. All raw code. A typo must be in there somewhere.

I don't think I have the extra helper-leaf on my springs, but I'll double check it...

Her in-bed fuel tank is only 55 gallons. Mine is 110 gallons. I have about 60 gallons in it, right now.
