So, you know the drill - get home from work, run around like an idiot, packing the bikes/toys/dogs/beer/etc etc etc. All is done and we were off to the Shushwap.....
Hit Armstrong (coming from Vernon), and I applied the brakes
and the trailer immediately violently started swaying - fishtailing
- back and forth. Obviously we pulled over, onto a side road.
My first thoughts were that I had a flat tire? Nope. nothing. So drove along this side road to test it out. Sure enough, did it again - only at certain speeds. And when foot taken off brake and gas, still sways excessively till at a stop. It almost feels like the thing is going to rip off the hitch!
I am towing a 21.5 Bigfoot
with a f350. I usually have my brake controller (stock) at 5 - 6 depending if water loaded. Today I had it at 5.5. I tried lowering it down to 4 and still same thing happening.
We turned around, not risking any damage to trailer / ourselves.....I figure brakes
must be not braking evenly or something. Will make some calls to some brake shops in the AM then try to head out again.....
PS I forgot to mention that yes, I do have sway bars....
