I guess this would really, really, really make one think twice about the extra flex as reported with the extra hitch length added with an Air Hitch.

Unhappy Sorry

the article didn't give any url's, but quoted an A/S owner that had the problem and then related it to Dave S. The article in the Blue Beret went on to say that GM RECOMMENDED the round tube hitch should be replaced with the square type. Can you believe they would say this? Needless to say I have brought (gave them a copy of the article) this to the dealers attention and want a letter stating the round style hitch is approved for use. If not I /they have a problem. Of course the dealer says they've NEVER had a problem and several of thier employees have towed heavy trailers with no problems. What else is new!!!! Tell that to the judge after something terrible happens!!!!!

Electric brake testing

Thanks to all for the great suggestions which were most educational for me. I've installed a Tekonsha controller in the Ford and in combination with their setup advice I've verified "normal" brake function. No long trips yet!
