Don't want to get contensious (sic), know how easy it is to blow off steam (me too)).
But I wonder, has anybody ever used , like strain gages, or accelerometers, mounted in TTs, and TVs, to measure ,and record the actual real time enviroment of a "emergency manuver".
The most simple one , would probebly be a "slap on the binders", while staying, (or trying to), in a line/lane.
Of course, things aren't always so easy, but maybe some computer analized data from some manuvering, etc., might produce some intresting results.
I guess a big hurdle, might be the results, from say, a "big square box", vs., and AS., oh, and what about "wind", from natural sources, or from a passing big rig.
Anyway, it seems like a lot of food for thought.
Like, when the trailer brakes go full on, (in the sense of maximum effort, before lockup), with the center of gravity being above the wheel bearings, a very powerfull down force should be applyed to the hitch. What kind of loads are we talking about?
