    New Superglide Moving when driving (No 5th wheel attached)

    Guys

    Just had a Superglide 2900 by Pullrite installed and when I drive without teh trailer attached it moves back and forth when I accelerate or brake. Is there an adjustment I need to do or just get a bungy cord?

    I looked at it and I do not see anyway to lock it. I did a google search and some folks said they use a bungy cord OR there is some nylon pad adjustment???

    Teamam,
    This is how i made the adjustment. Also you can go to pullright Web site and download your owners manual.

    . This adjustment will need to be made periodically. If you are experiencing a bump or “clunk” when starting or stopping,
    or if the hitch is sliding up and down the way tubes when you are not hooked up to the trailer you can perform this
    adjustment to reduce the noise and keep the hitch in the forward towing position when not trailering.
    1. The Turntable Cam Arm Roller, {C3} needs to be kept snug against the rear edge of the of the Cam Slot (see below).
    2. To adjust, loosen the Jam Nut located on the Threaded Stop Assembly {E}, under the Fifth Wheel Plate {A} (on the
    side facing the front of your truck).
    3. Adjusting the Threaded Stop Assembly’s hex-shaped plate, will remove excessive play from between the Plastic Wear
    Plates and the Turntable Cam Arm Roller.
    4. Turn the hex-shaped plate of the Threaded Stop Assembly by hand, adjusting incrementally, until resistance is felt
    when pulling the Turntable Cam Arm Assembly into the angled Cam Slot. While holding the hex-shaped plate in
    place, tighten the Jam Nut with a wrench.

    The 2900 I had would slide back and forth occasionally, especially if I had recently lubed the slides with WD-40. What happens, or at least to the one I had, was the head would turn from the acceleration or deceleration which allows it to slide. I would put a block of wood behind the head so it couldn't move. If the head is straight it can't slide but once it turns a little it will allow it to move.

    As stated above there's a fairly large nut that you might need to occasionally adjust but I think that only helps if it moves when starting and stopping and you'll hear a clunking noise. It's easy to see if it needs adjusting, just slide it all the way forward with the hitch head straight. If you pull backwards on it, it shouldn't move.

    It's a PDF file. You should be to click on it then scroll to page 12 and it will tell you how to adjust so your hitch won't move while traveling down the road, it worked for me. I hope it helps. Let me know if you can't open file
