    Very dissapointed with Triton WC2-2 dual torsion axle trailer

    I have this trailer for the last two years. I'm towing with a ram 1500 and have a seadoo rxt x 260 and wake 215.

    I can't get this trailer setup. I have moved the bow stop all the way forward. Have about w30 pounds of tongue weight and the trailer still jumps and pulls up at the tongue.

    I should have bought a cheap galvanized single axle.

    Triton trailers is no help. Axles are not ajustable.

    Its a twin axle correct? Do you have the correct hitch ball height so the weight is even on both axles and not tilted/leaning? and by hitting the "W" did you mean 230# or 330#? Triton makes good trailers, i would suggest talking to a dealer or trailer store, as they will be more helpful than the MFG.

    Want to trade? Triton is a very good trailer Ask questions and you will get it all done right. Why not ask the place you got it from?

    I have the same trailer. It does bounce a little bit. I tow with a mid sized SUV and have had to play with the ball height to get the smoother ride. I initially had the straight 3 ball setup and found it was a little tall and put more weight on the back axle. I switched to a 3.5" drop and it reversed the issue. I am currently with a 2.5" drop and it seemed to settle the bounce out. The front coupler is a little noisy. I blame that on the surge brake booster setup, not as much the overall trailer. I had a haul rite single axel before and I would not go back. Just like with anything in life, you have to adjust it to suit your needs. Hope this helps

    First suggestion is to have a nut welded to the receiver with a bolt tightened up to place pressure on the hitch removing 100% of the noise.

    I have a brand new WC2-2 also, reference here: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=233179

    I suspect you do not have the ski's far enough forward to place the center of gravity of the ski's in the middle of the 2 axles. I know this is critical and used a forklift with a sling to find the center of gravity of the ski's. This places the ski's with about 4-5" of bunk showing behind the ski. If you have your ski's any further back than this or even with the bunks, that is your problem and is causing your bouncing. Look at the picture below to see how much the bunks are showing behind the skis to position the weight correctly.

    I also have a 19"x46" box up front which helps put weight forward on the hitch.

    I absolutely love how mine pulls and have gone on several long trips and it performs amazing.

    Good luck

    Make sure the trailer frame is level with the ground when the trailer and tow vehicle are loaded and road ready. It is important with all trailers but more so with the dual torsion axles that the trailer frame be level with the ground.

    The primary factor in getting the trailer frame level is the height of the tow ball. Measure the distance from the tow ball top to the ground with the trailer connected. Then check whether the tow ball is too high or too low to allow the trailer frame to be level. You can measure the frame height between the two axles from the from to the ground. When properly configured the trailer frame to flat ground should be the same distance at front and rear of trailer and between the axles to ground.

    If you need to buy a different ball mount to shift the ball higher or lower to get the trailer to tow level, then that is what is needed.

    Taking the slop out of the ball mount to hitch receiver really helps cut down the noise. I use a SoftRide QuietRide ball mount and there is zero flex and zero noise from the hitch and ball mount. I tow a single torsion axle Triton double trailer and it does the job well.

    If you have done the above and are still having issues then it may need attention from a trailer specialist to confirm the axles are aligned on the frame, neither frame nor axles are bent, and that all four tires are tracking straight.

    Looks like ~1 in 5 user reviews of that softride pin report trouble with them:

    I'm going to try one of these, in conjunction with a Trimax locking hitch pin.:

    Have one of these inbound as well, to adjust ball height between tow vehicles:

    Wow...what a simple solution. Does anyone have any objection to this type of anti rattle?

    I have everything in my garage to go do this. Cant believe I didnt think of this.

    If you use that adjustable height ball mount you are going to reintroduce slop into the hitch setup and have some rattling again.

    I have the quiet ride hitch pin. You really have to make sure you get the lock on correctly or it will come off like some of the reviewers complained about. I have towed well over 100,000 miles with the Quiet Ride hitch pin with no issues. Well I shouldn't say that. I have had the nut seize on the pin from salt corrosion due to winter use. I am replacing the nut and will use anti seize on it, as well as disassembling it occasionally.
