Try this one on for size. A few years back, I was following my parents through farm country on a two lane highway, traveling about 55 mph. luckily I was back a block or so, but I saw it all. One of the farmers had his irrigation system going and it was spraying the highway really good, like completely. Parent's drove through, I do not recall them slowing down. The stream of water hit the hitch assembly yanked the e-brake cable and locked their brakes up on the TT. The tires smoked big time. They came to a quick stop, and put some good flat spots on the bottom of the tires.
