Newbie here. I pull a 2003 Coachmen 24TBG with my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi. I towed it today for 90 miles over mostly county and state roads, avoiding major highways. My trailer was empty but for the cover in the rear storage. No propane or batteries were on board. The trip was uneventful but for one thing:
When braking, it "feels" like the trailer is braking first. My truck's brakes are newer, within the last 10 months. Upon braking i could feel the truck being tugged backwards a bit. When I approached coming to a complete stop the tugging feel increased and sort of pulsed a few times. Any ideas about this or am I just being welcomed into the wonderful world of towing with common occurrences?
When setting my stabilizer bars, should I have to use a bar for leverage to lock them into position? Is being able to do it by hand not appropriate?
Thanks for all your feedback.
