If he has 2" of rear end separation, I would say unbalanced running gear is just a part of the problem. I would imagine the rattle and shake that would result from having the entire aft portion of his frame flapping in the wind would easily dislodge some of the interior.
Its time to fix the rear of the trailer--having a Burning Man deadline ought to be incentive to get the job done!
Youre right...I explained the whole concept from the separation and axles...which are sitting at negative and as I said he just doesnt get it...and aside from getting a video inside his trailer as its rolling I just had to take the next best thing.
The one thing that I do understand it that he is about to take on rebuilding his home so I know where his money lies but he could just say the bigger priority is the home but it doesnt explain him not understanding the concept of why cabinets are shaking loose.
So sure...the safety of it and the wellbeing of the trailer is a different thing. it could certainly be the shell flexing loosening the cabinets because of the separation. Regardless an imbalanced running gear without separation (such that could happen on new trailers) might cause cabinets to loosen up and doors to open which will probably eventually lead to separation and many other problems but this video might just help those who don't have an opportunity to ride in their trailers know what kind of abuse it is taking when they aren't taking care of it.
