    Trailer swaying?

    My trailer if I gently turn the steering wheel at highway speeds, sways back and forth. My vehicle is a 1/2 ton Suburban with a 10 inch drop hitch. Do I need to go lower?
    Thanks in advance, Charles

    As video shows may need more tongue weight. Moving the winch post forward just 1 inch is a big difference

    Trailer sway is almost always to much weight to the rear. It could be the position of the boat on the trailer, or, the trailer hitch too high. Height should be level or slightly lower than level. If your bow post is adjustable, move it forward an inch or two.
