Glad to hear that. Suggestion: Slow down to the 60-65 max mph range. Your trailer tires won't take it!

I understand. At 75 mph it seems like you're floating, but i only did that once, by accident. Was brought back to reality by a open handed punch in the chest from passenger seat. Wife asked me had I gone crazy. I said, why? She said "you're going 80 friggin miles an hour. Slow Down!" I had no idea. But with time, 60 mph has become the target speed and mpg did increase noticeably.

The right hand governors do kick in from time to time.
