Davegray I saw that video years ago at an rv show. Seeing it again was a great refresher. Thanks for posting it.

I had a friend that had a rear tire blowout on his SRW 3500 pulling a 5th wheel on a 2 lane road. He crossed the oncoming lane and the opposing shoulder before he could stop his truck......thank goodness no vehicles were in the lane. Scary stuff.

I was driving North on (I-75) in the (winter/snowing).Suburban with (7) guys and Gear pulling a (Double Deck Snowmobile Trailer) with (8) snowmobiles on it! Blew a New (BFG T/A Radial Tire) on the right rear of the Suburban! We pulled over to the berm and put on the spare. Had the (Reese W/D bars on) NO Sway Control! Reese says NOT to use S/C on ICE or Slippery conditions! Youroo!!

X2 on pulling with a dually. I see to many large fifth wheels being pulled by single rear wheel vehicles and wonder why.
