The trailer and truck combo handle very well and the trailer itself appears to ride smoothly. The problem is when the trailer goes over any break in the pavement it causes a slight jarring in the truck. At first it isn't very noticeable but after an hour you have to take a break.
I've towed many 5th wheel trailers and a couple with this truck also with never a problem. This is the first one that's had a torq suspension system though and I'm wondering if that's the cause? I talked to the engineering department with Dexter about this system and was informed that a problem can arise if the trailer isn't loaded or designed to accommodate this suspension system.
Any discussion to resolve this issue would be appreciated.
Gljurczyk, has the answer to this.
