Having Trailer Sway?

It has been discussed on here multiple times to where if you are having trailer sway or a white knuckle tow, chances are you may be running too low of hitch weight, resulting a bad trailer balance. Here is a simple 13 second video that helps show what happens with bad front to back trailer balance.

Take 13 seconds to watch this. It could save your life.* - GIF on Imgur

Everyone be safe out there!
