Efficiency on Pulling 7x14 Tandem Axle trailer on Cat 330 DP?
Iím getting a 7 x 14 double axle enclosed cargo trailer today. I plan on pulling it behind my 2003 national trade winds 40 foot DP, cat 330.
Iíve heard it with this engine, it really shouldnít even affect the efficiency, but I wanted to check to see if anybody has any insight. The trailer is rated for 7000lbs GVW, and I doubt I will ever be fully loaded to that weight. But, for sake of Max planning, letís consider dragging the trailer at full GVW.
Also, with the brake system on the MH, do I need the brake controller for the trailer? I know thatís probably a stupid question, and the answer is probably yes. But, I donít really know. With the brake controller, is there anything specifically that I need to do wiring wise to get the controller into the rig? T with the brake controller, is there anything specifically that I need to do wiring wise to get the controller into the rig? The MH has the seven prong plug built right into the bumper
Thanks guys! Safe travels!
