  • Choosing Between Lippert and Tuson Electronic Trailer Stability/Sway Control
    We don't carry the Hayes system, but I can explain the differences between the Tuson # 335TSC-1000 Asymmetric Sway Control and the Lippert # LC380605 Sway Command. • The Tuson is compaitble with 1 to 4 brake axles, while the Lippert is only compatible with up to 2 axles. • The Tuson needs to be mounted between 1-10 feet rearward of the trailer hitch ball, while the Lippert can be mounted anywhere between 4-10 feet rearward. Both need to be installed on the trailer centerline. •...

  • Sway Control Option For Straight Tongue Trailer
    There are a couple of options to add sway control to your boat trailer with a straight tongue, but pole tongue adapters are not compatible with friction sway control bars because they don't allow proper turning clearance. So that leaves a couple of options for you, the easiest and most economical of which is an electronic sway control unit. This is only compatible with electric trailer brakes, which I assume your boat trailer does have because friction sway control is not compatible...

  • Can Brake Controller and Hayes Sway Master be Used with 2018 Honda Pilot
    Brake controllers can be used with electric sway control systems like the Hayes Sway Master # LC380605 without issue. The two systems work well together as they both put voltage on the brake output circuit without affecting the other. In general when the Sway Master is activated it won't be when you are applying the trailer brakes with the brake controller so for the most part they would be working at different times. For a break controller the Redarc Tow Pro Liberty part # RED24FR...

  • Comparing Lippert Electronic Sway Control and Tuson Electronic Sway Control For 1977 31' Airstream
    I would be happy to help! Even though you will still be rewiring your 1977 31' Airstream Sovereign tandem axle trailer I still recommend going with the Lippert Sway Command Electronic Sway Control # LC380605 over the Tuson # 335TSC-1000. The reason for this is the Lippert # LC380605 uses a built in gyroscope to detect sway and correct it before it occurs where the Tuscon # 335TSC-1000 uses preset algorithms that in my opinion are a bit less effective. Combine that with the fact that...

    That's an interesting issue you have, as weight distribution systems are designed with certain tongue weights in mind, and can be ineffective if they are not in the proper range like what you described. For your situation, the perfect supplement to your weight distribution system would absolutely be the Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes # LC380605. This is going to absolutely help control the sway you are experiencing on the highway because it will...

  • Sway Control Recommendations on a Tear Drop Trailer With Brakes
    I highly recommend using some kind of sway control on any trailer. The sway control is not only there to reduce sway caused by wind and larger vehicles but can also protect you and your trailer when you have to swerve to miss something in the road. For your 2014 Honda Ridgeline pulling the 2021 Bend Tear Trailer I recommend using the Lippert Sway Command # LC380605. This system is my favorite because there is never anything that you need to do once you have it installed. It will use...

  • Comparing Lippert and Hayes Electric Sway Control Modules for Trailer
    Functionally the Sway Command part # LC380605 and the Hayes # HA81775 are basically the same idea made a little differently by different manufacturers. They both are systems designed to detect sway using sensors and then apply the trailer brakes in a way that stops it before it becomes noticeable. Detecting the sway isn't difficult enough to require the exact sensor location you mentioned so having it moved further back wouldn't offer a significant advantage.

  • Sway Commander Module Installation Location
    Good question! I found the two notes below in the instructions for your Sway Commander system. After going over them I would recommend a relocation. It is important that the system be mounted in the center it to accurately measure the sway of the trailer. Mounting it off center is likely to cause lower than expected results. By having it less than 4' behind the hitching location this will also cause the system not to be as effective as you will want. With 4' being the minimum I would...

  • Can Lippert LC380605 Sway Command Be Used With Friction Sway Control on Small Pop-Up Camper
    If your existing sway control isn't working to your satisfaction, you could certainly add the Lippert # LC380605 sway command. Lippert tells me that you could indeed use the Sway Command in conjunction with a friction sway unit. The system works by using a gyroscope to sense trailer sway and then modulating the trailer brakes to stop the sway. As long as your braking system is electric, the Sway Command would be an excellent choice. One small caveat- This system isn't compatible with the...

  • Will the Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System Work With An Aftermarket Brake Controller
    The Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System part # LC380605 will work with most aftermarket and even some factory brake controllers so you will be just fine using the Reese Towpower 8507111 Brakeman IV Digital Brake Control. Currently, the only factory brake controllers we are aware of that will not work with the Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System are on GM trucks and suvs from 2014+ but the actual vehicle is not an issue.

That is one of the differences between this unit and the Tuson Asymmetric Sway Control # 335TSC-1000. The Tuson is compatible with all factory brake controllers,...

  • Will the REDARC Tow-Pro Elite and Hayes Sway Master Work Together
    I have another option for you but the Hayes Sway Master Electronic Sway Control System part HA81775 you were looking at has been discontinued. Instead I recommend the Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes - 1 to 2 Axles # LC380605 which will work perfectly with the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller part # RED44FR. Both are great products and will serve you well. I have linked video on both for you to check out if you haven't already.

  • Can a Weight Distribution System Be Used On a 2012 Audi Q5
    I do have an option to help with some of the problems associated with towing a trailer such as trailer sway but in regards to weight control, there are no options for a 2012 Audi Q5 since you cannot use a weight distribution system (trailer hitches nor vehicle are rated for use) and there are no suspension enhancement options. Therefore, I recommend you keep the tongue light but so long as you are under the towing capacity you should not have too many issues. In regards to sway which...

    The issue with trailer sway is actually more present on smaller trailers than large and being a single axle plays into that as well so I do recommend adding some sort of sway control advice.

  • Connecting Blue Wire from Lippert Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System
    The blue wire from the Lippert Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System # LC380605 should connect to the brake output wire from your tow vehicle. Typically this wire is indeed blue in color, but I can't say for certain that it's the same wire you referred to in your question, as trailer manufacturers don't make information like this readily available. To test for the correct wire your best option is to apply the manual override on the brake controller inside the truck's cab when...

    If the trailer has brakes then I do have a great option that will provide sway control without having to worry about spring bars, the Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System part # LC380605 is what I recommend. If the trailer does not have brakes or you prefer both weight distributing and sway control properties then I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-0600 as the best bang for buck option. It will also require the 2" Hitch Ball part # A-90.

  • Can Weight Distribution Help Sway on Aluminum Frame Trailer
    It sounds like your weight distribution system is most likely rated properly but the sway you are experiencing is not something that a WD system would be effective at eliminating. Also worth noting is you said it's an aluminum trailer which is almost always excluded from use with weight distribution. So see if you can move weight forward in the trailer and that will do a great job reducing persistent sway. And then to get rid of sway from high winds the Sway Command part # LC380605...

Judging by what I was able to find on the Model Y I would not anticipate that is approved for WD use. A sway control device like part # LC380605 would do a great job preventing sway that has already started but better loading in the trailer would give you the best ride quality since that is the main cause of trailer sway.

    Though the Curt Echo Brake Controller # C51180 and Lippert Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes # LC380605 will both use the brakes on the trailer, the vast majority of the time they will not be used at the same time. One potential add-on will be the Manual Override Button for Curt Echo Brake Controller # C83HR. This will allow you to engage the manual override on the # C51180 without the need of your smartphone after the initial set is completed.

    The best anti-sway option we offer for a 2012 Volkswagen Touareg is electric, the Sway Command Electronic Sway Control System for Electric Trailer Brakes part # LC380605 is what I recommend. This won't put any additional stress on the frame of the vehicle so there won't be any warranty issues. It uses the trailers brakes to correct sway.

    Assuming your trailer is loaded properly (with cargo weight as far forward as possible), and you are using a weight distribution system with sway control built in like the Fastway E2 I wouldn't say an electric sway control like the part # LC380605 would be necessary. It certainly wouldn't hurt and it would be nice knowing that in the event of any sway it would immediately stop and correct it though.
