Hi All
Great Video. I get the tongue weight a little bit different. The A - Frame of my tandem trailer is hinged, as you drive onto the trailers ramp the front of the trailer comes up this indicates the weight is to far back. As you move forward the trailer then tilts back down this indicating you are starting to apply weight to the ball I drive about 6 to s8 inches further forward which gives me the correct ball weight for safe towing. Then all that is left to do is lock the trailer down and chain the tractor onto the trailer.:good2:
The other advantage of this system is that at no stage does it take weight off the rear wheels of the tow vehicle which has the hand brake (park brake) on.
Regards John
PS the trailer is rated at 2.5 Tonnes or 2500 Kg or 5511 lbs
