Is your pintle ring suffering excessive wear and tear? Your trailer may have its tandem spring setup in the wrong location.
Does the image on the right look familiar?
Equipment installed in the wrong location can have a tragic effect.
All trailers have different weights and lengths. Heavy loads must ensure even distribution across your axle load group.
Buy a set of tow ball scales and measure your pintle hook head weight. It must be within the 5% to 7% range for a tandem trailer.
