Well that was a good read.

So back to Post One, Boosted1200, how'd you make out please.

John

PS. I really don't want to open a can of worms here but I'm somewhat surprised no one piped in about the srw, must of missed that

Anyway curious minds want to know.

Only problem with that theory is that his previous TV was a SRW and had no issues, IIRC.

That's why they put steering wheels on tow vehicles, so you can change lanes either to the right or left. If you don't like someone going 55 in the left lane to avoid bumps, just gently turn the steering wheel to the right and go around or you take the secondary road!

Driving crazy fast in heavy traffic and not having room to stop or slow down like a car will have you ending up on a tow hook because of the crash that you are in from going to fast. Drive the conditions. Keep your spacing, because people will continually jump in front of you (I guess you don't like that? Neither do I, but I know that is the way it is.) Keeping up with traffic is not goal #1, driving safely at a good steady pace is. Driving on secondary roads all of the time could be and sometimes is more unsafe than 10-15 mph slower on the interstate.
Amen

I lowered the hitch but have not had time to hook up yet.

Funny about the drw talk When I was camping this weekend I seen a 1500 ford v6 ecoboost with a 5th wheel 35'+ on it, I should have took some pics I almost bought the drw this time but just cant justify it for the other 340 days a year. If the swaying doesnt get better ill be back at the dealer for a drw My 2500 srw pulled just perfect so im assuming ill get this one to also

And that sums up this thread I think it's gone in at least 3 complete circles on the diversions. Now we just need a solution on the original question which we are still waiting for with bated breath

Sorry this is "off topic".
Around here there are few secondary roads to drive on. I drive 65 because that is what I want to drive, I am not changing my speed because it bothers others who want to drive faster. I believe there is a minimum speed on the freeways, it used to be 45 mph but I have also seen ones at 55 mph. When they change that to 65 then I will consider getting out or others way.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Hopefully you get this resolved otherwise you not going to want to go anywhere.
