Many years ago we were pulling our "train" up to Grand Teton National Park. Our "train" consists of our TV, an Eagle 215SD FW and a walk around 18 .5' boat. As we came over a hill, the boat started fishtailing and I could see it in the driver-side mirror and then the passenger-side mirror, each two or three times. I could see most of the boat each time it fishtailed so it wasn't just a minor wobble. Fortunately, we kept moving forward, the FW moved a bit in concert with the boat, but it finally settled down and straightened out. Needless to say, the rest of the trip was less than comfortable worrying about the problem happening again, but it didn't. We have been pulling double with a FW and a boat since 1993 and this is the only time it happened. Only damage was a little bending on the wiring but we were pretty shook up.

Around Feb-March of 2012 I was towing a 43ft park model westbound on I94 just east of Clearwater, MN. The highway rolls up a bit of a knoll and it is open field on both sides of the highway. The wind was blowing rather hard out of the north and as soon as I crested the knoll I could tell the wind and snow had turned the hwy to shear ice. The wind pushed the trailer far enough to the driver side that i am sure i could see the taillights on the trailer. I used the manual slide on the brake controller and the trailer came back in line. Exactly 2.3 miles down the road they had the highway closed the rest of the way west to Fago, ND. I checked in at a hotel and changed my pants....
