^^^ M.O.B. just reminded me of something.  Trailers I've pulled (full size behind truck) have all carried 50 psi tire pressure, as does M.O.B.'s little trailer.
I went back to top of thread and noticed yours is much less.  Try 50 psi, see what happens.

 Mine tracks fine but I run mine at 25 lbs to get rid of the bounce.....

yeah, I check the rating on the tires before maxing them out, but running them low is asking for heat issues.. I check the tires and wheel hubs temp by touching them at every stop for fuel, and have never felt them get hot at all....


oh, and FS can attest I don't hold back from stuffing that trailer, he watched me unload it at the Johnson City National.... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

There is no such thing as too much ammo, unless you are on fire or trying to swim.
