Reese Dual Cam sway issues

I purchased a 35' camper that already had the Reese Dual cam setup installed on it. Its probably 9000lbs give or take most days.

I am pretty new to the world of weight dist. 2015 F350 pulls like a champ put over 60 mph I am all over the road and the steering feels pretty light. I added a friction bar and it didn't help the sway. I didn't realize this hitch had anti sway built in.

So... I am assuming that I must have the truck/hitch setup wrong. Does someone have a good how to guide to setup the truck for this hitch? Reese has install instructions but it doesn't do a good job showing you how to setup the truck.

I had the Reese Dual Cam setup it works great when its set up correctly. Problem I had with mine was bending 3 of those big knuckles before giving up on that system and going to the Reese Pro system, they both do a great job. Bending the knuckles I think came from traveling down forest service roads and turning into areas that were off camber and strange angles. It wasn't always possible to stop blocking a road to take the bars off before turning into an area. You won't need the friction bar and its really of no value on a trailer that size any way.

As for setting up what you have try this link it has all the information you should need. If you still need more help search that site for dual cam or someone will step in to help more.
