A weight issue?

I don't think thats the problem either. My TV is a 3500 not a 1500/2500 and payload is 3500 and I'm at 2500...

Clunking means something is moving... Period. As I said I really wish I knew someone I trusted to drive my rig around and I'd get in the back and know without a doubt where the movement is taking place. Anyone Close to Dayton wanna take me up on that?

And I am not trashing Andersen, All I am saying is if I wanted a solid connection I would have purchased that. If these shock absorbing pinboxes did no good they would not be in such wide use. I watched endless videos about the Andersen rail mount system and they brag and go on about their product. BUT no where did I see it mentioned it did not work well with pivoting or bag pinboxes. THAT I do blame Andersen for.

You said it "bucking and kicking" in the first post but now you are saying clunking. There is a difference, too little weight on the pin will give a miserable ride. Clunking is something loose. Mount a Gopro in the bed and take it for a drive.

I didnít say weight issue, I said weight DISTRIBUTION issue. Without regard to the tow vehicle, there could be a weight distribution issue in the camper. Too much or too little pin weight can aggravate chucking.

Really?

The backwards and forward movement is bucking and kicking.... What noise might it make when it hits these limits? I have stated the rig was loaded, As well as washer dryer in the front. Gopro? I don't have one. But yes a video camera might be an option if I had one. Then I could post a thread on suggestions on where to mount it.

Ever hear the saying "If ya ain't got nothing good to say"

Ok,...

As sometimes happens in these public forums some turn to the attack mode. I'm done here. Thanks to all who tried to help I really appreciate it.

God Bless

I am not sure who he thinks is in attack mode. Several people have given him great advice and suggestions and he just argues against all of them.

I am not arguing...

But I can't take everyones advise... there is one maybe two problems. If I have 12 different opinions should I/We not take the one who's is the most probable and go that direction?

And who is on the attack? Might your read the last line in your statement?

In (My Opinion ONLY) It is not a weight distribution issue. Weight distribution would give a porpoising effect in a sense. Not a forward and back. It seems (To Me) you are more concerned with being correct than looking at other opinions and trying to help figure out the problem and fixing it. For this reason there is no reason at all to keep this thread going. I have gotten alot of opinions and it is up to me to move forward and I am doing so.

Several of us have suggested it may be one of the following.

Weight distribution

Weight distribution is easy and cheap to check. Take it to a scale and weigh it properly.

Roto Flex pin box

For $40 you can get the lock out kit and install it in a few minutes.

If neither of these work, move on to more serious fixes.

I am not trying to convince you I am the only one with the answers, I don’t know how you get that. These are just suggestions more than one of us have made. They are the least expensive and most likely going to fix your problem. Either way I will Bow out of trying help.
