I am absolutely amazed at the number of people you meet at campgrounds, etc, and in the course of the conversation, ask them what engine they have in their tow vehicle, and the answer comes back, "I have no idea." Scary!!

It's amazing how many have no clue how to even set up their rig. Let alone how to back it up, or what electrical they need, or how to even hook up their TV to a cable system.... Dealers have a responsibility to educate not just sell.

Also someone has to educate folks on campground manners.. it's amazing how self centered people are. Don''t get me started

Also, moving the height of the ball would a help also. Amazing how often people don't even know they need to adjust the height of the ball to match the tongue on the trailer..

Check out the rear axle on the trailer. I bet the front axle is over loaded. I can just see him bouncing down the road. LOL

The sales man told him that as he goes down the highway the wind pressure will press down on the back of the trailer causing the ball to rise and put more pressure on the front tires..

But, did the salesman caution him because, as the ball rises putting more pressure on the front tires, he may loose traction as the rear tires lift off the pavement?

When that happens it slows down and weight is returned to the rear axle.

There may be a point in his near future "it" literally won't be back there.
