Even with the adjustment made in Jackson we've still had some bouncy rides with the new pin. At Jackson Mike recommended adding some fresh water to the tank as ballast and to take some weight off the truck, 3030's have a heavy pin. Well before yesterday's pull to Canyonville I put about 20 gallons in my tank and it seems to have helped with the bounce. On the past couple of pulls stuff inside the trailer had been really jarred around but this time things were pretty much where they were supposed to be.

Thanks for the tip Mike :thumbrt:

Might want to investigate what's holding that water tank in, we've had some members have their fresh water tanks fall out this past year.

That was the early 2015 wide bodies that had problems.
