Trailer Tongue Weight and Sway

Since I changed vans ( I went from a 94 to a 98 chevy van ) I''ve had a problem with sway when towing my SJ-26 , usually caused by a semi passing at high speed . Yesterday I decided to check my trailer tongue weight and found it to be 260 lbs . The manual said it should be 150 to 200 lbs . If I lower the tongue weight to the recommended 150 lbs does anybody think it will help my sway problem ?
