I thought this was a cool video on weight distribution
You beat me to it. Just saw that on facebook and was coming here to post it.
Link not on facebook.
Great find and video. Thanks!
Glad you found this, I was looking on youtube for a non FB link but couldn't find it.
I'm hauling a race car more than the camper these days. In some ways it's easier with a tandem axle trailer but it's a LOT more weight. My last trip home from NJMP I had some frightening sway. I was way way too tired to stop and move the load so I just kept the speed down and got home. The next day I went to unload and found I had exactly ZERO tongue weight. I could move the tongue up and it would stay, move it down, it would stay. Perfectly balanced, well balanced for disaster.
Saved me the trouble. Thanks.
thank goodness for imgur...
was just coming to post this
Here is the Youtube link. I was just coming here to share this. A video speaks thousands of words.
Wow, I was also here to share that same video, I saw it last night.
I'm so glad we all came here to share it, seeing as well all saw it already
Since I didn't get to be the first one to share it here, I may let my nerd flag fly and share on my facebook.
That's interesting. Same here, I just saw this on the FaceBook, grabbed the Youtube link, and was about to post it here. Seems as though everyone is seeing this at the same time.
If he had a brake controller he could get that camper back tracking in a jiffy!!!
Really? I'm going to have one of those. I'll have to learn how to use it properly.
when you have electric brakes and your trailer start swaying you apply the manual brake slowly and it will make it track again. you will also have to slow down your TV.
That's great if you have enough time to do it, before you fly off the road!
I was sort of proud of myself for looking to share it in the proper place for a change! Sometimes I get the message about posting an item in the wrong spot, this time I looked for the place I thought it should go... and it was already there!
Of course, if you get in a situation like in the video you are in big trouble. However, most swaying starts slowly unless induced on a panic brake.
I am a retired truck driver of 38 years . I have heard people say do not use your trailer brake except for emergency . Well I was pulling a tanker one night on a road that had a fuel oil spill and I was already going slow but not aware of the oil spill till my trailer was trying to pass me up lol. I applied slight trailer brake only and it got right back in line with me and I coasted through that bad place in the road and I was ok . So yes applying trailer brake only at certain times is or can be very helpful.
