Great deal

Hey guys ,I went to an Auction this Saturday morn. and walked away with a brand new 2007 model 32' travel triler fo $4400 plus buyers fee and auction fee made it $4800.This thing sat on a lot for 4 years,still had the plastic wrap on the all the cushions and all the drawers were still fastened shut from the factory,looks great.The problem I'm have though is when I hook up the trailer it keeps poping the running light fuse in my truck,which sux.I don't know if it is the trailer or truck because with the trailer unhooked once I turn on the lights and then turn them off ,the runnuing lights stay on,so I pulled the fuse under the hood to get them to turn off,with the fuse out under the hood everything is normal when I turn the lights on or off.This morning when I hooked up the trailer the fuse under the dash blows,anyone ever have this problem? Any advice would be helpful.

The auction that they just had at Augusta Auto auction in S.C. They had 150 campers that they autioned off and all went for between $3300 to $6500 and these campers are worth between $25,000 to $45,000

I was just told by a fellow worker that I had to have sway bars, can anyone tell me a little about what I need to pull this camper,I already have elec. brakes on my F-350 from pulling a horse trailer but don't know anything about sway bars.

I had a single sway bar on the trailer with my 31'. The only thing I can think of with you blowing fuses is either the wiring on your truck may be worn somewhere or something got into the wires on the trailer. Could be the trailer wires are hooked up incorrectly from the factory, it happened with mine and it was a pain to chase down. I would recommend the single sway bar from Reese, it's fairly easy to install and is a lot cheaper than a dual cam setup.

This is what I used on our old TT and never had a problem.

Looks good to me ,so that is all I would need,I see where it looks like you have to drill holes in the side of the trailer a arm ,but what does the other side hook to?

Yes it was, I just found it when I saw your question. Do a google search for Reese friction sway control. The one end hooks to your trailer with the bracket screwed into the traielr frame. The other end will hook to your very expensive trailer hitch that's needed to tow it. The hitch will have a smaller ball on either the right or left side, depends on which side you put the sway control on, for the bar to hook to. Let me see if I can find a different link for you.

The one above is for the sway control.
The one below is the style you will need to hook up the sway bar.

That hook up looks strange to me I have the hitch ball that is adjustable up or down ,but I don't see how the stabilizer hooks to the unit on the truck,do you still have a pix of your outfit?
