Had the same thing happen to me in my ski boat.

You must always provide support to a distressed woman.

I once a long time ago gave a "distressed woman" a ride on the back of my Lambretta. It was winter time but my ears stayed warm. Sal.

OMG. You guys are hilarious. Somehow all of the threads recently have been turning into That Thread. I've been waiting for the worn out coupler thread to sink too...

Spring is early this year and our thoughts are turning that way. Imagine being in your Airstream with your partner when it is porpoising—what opportunities are available?

Sal, I never thought of them as "ear muffs". I wonder how I can explain this to my wife if I forget a hat when it is cold.

When I was a kid my friends grandma had to throw hers over her shoulders in order to do the dishes.

Whoa!

Seems to me y'all are on the wrong thread, or is this a hijacking?

I have BILSTEIN on my truck at present, but the new KONI FSD would be an upgrade. Available for GM and DODGE trucks in 3/4 & 1T.

The "lever arm" of the trailer ball-coupler-to-axle-center distance has a good bit to do with this. A non-compliant suspension makes it worse (so get the WDH dialled in correctly), and, put some TT's together with some TV's and the problem is magnified.

Moho's are affected by porpoising as are tractor trailers (try mis-gauging the axle load on one of those and it'll pound you to beans). Better shock absorbers (past loading/rigging details) are the next best step.

I hate it as much as anyone. Oklahoma turnpikes can be bad on this.
