What makes you think brakes are involved?

Well I mean as long as your truck can handle the hitch weight, right?

Another example where the Engineer’s calculations show it will fail. Engineer’s must be too conservative.

I am an Engineer, and have been accused more than once of over-conservatism

No need for safety chains, right?

Didnít take the driver to determine it was a total loss and they need to skedaddle, did it?

Was it even connected to the ball properly?

My Son had a flatbed trailer stolen from his shop one night. Someone saw the thieves on the Security Cam and ran them off. A day later the Sheriff's Dept called and asked my Son if the trailer was his and if so could he come and get it. Apparently the thieves didn't realize that a 2-5/16 coupler doesn't grip a 2" ball very well and when they crossed a RR grade crossing down the street from the Sheriff's substation it parted company with the truck and went into a field.

They too didn't bother with safety chains.

In watching the video it looks like there was a "bump" involved and perhaps it too was a stolen trailer with a "ball mismatch".

Funny thing, when my Son recovered his trailer there was a pretty nice pickup bed "topper" on it. Nobody claimed it so he sold it to cover his "trouble".
