    Friction Anti Sway Control

    Can anyone provide a suggestion to remedy this issue?

    I have just changed caravans and gone lighter. On the maiden voyage I found the new van wanted to wag it's tail a little. I filled the H2o tanks to add weight to the tow-ball and put the rear tyres up to 48kpi which was a little improvement but still not as good as the old heavier van.

    The van has a tare of 2450 with a ball weight of 149Kg.

    Will fitting a Friction Control Sway bags interfere with the suspension of the D4 HSE or the Electronic Stability Control of the van. I would live to rectify the issue before heading to Lake Eyre at the end of the month or it will be a slow trip.

    Chappo

    can you take some weight from behind the wheels and add a bit more to the front, maybe a bit light on the ball, some say you need 10%, I don't go with that but its wagging for a reason. I would find a fix not mask a problem
    cheers

    Fair call, I will look at what I can move to the front to increase the ball weight.
