So basically 8000lbs, from PA under to FL this weekend.The trailer rental place mentioned I"d more than likely need a load distribution assembly ~ above the trailer so it"s no too lot weight top top the sphere area. I can likewise rent the brake controller native them as well for the weekend. The truck has actually the auto trans and towing pkg for every little thing that"s worth. I assumed someone may have the ability to shed part light top top the possibilities the this for me. Any type of insight would certainly be greatly appreciated.

I think there space two reasons. The very first being the the infectious diseases world fashion is merely weaker than the auto. It"ll job-related fine for everyday driving and also what not, but it"s not made to be lugging around a couple extra tons. And the 2nd being that Dodge didn"t desire to have to be responsible for civilization burning out their clutches continuous - heavier load way harder to get going which means highly likelyhood of a burned up clutch.

Don"t forget to stay within" your GCWR. Don"t forget come deduct hitch weight from automobile payload. I recommend electric brakes. If the trailer had actually a huge frontal area (usual vehicle carrier), you"ll desire to keep the car in third gear uneven you encounter really flat roads. Greater rpm at rate will aid in transmission fluid flow and cooling.
