What he said.
From memory these things have a tow rating of 1600kg.
If it has a square hole hitch receiver towbar, then your max downball load is around 160kg (or less).
i.e. drawbar weight on the towball
From your picture you look like you have a fair bit of mass (load) forward of the trailer axle.
e.g. bikes, spare wheel, load box etc.
Too much ball load will cause this issue.
Whether you have HD springs or airbags or whatever, they don't magically 'remove' mass on the towball.
How do you check downball load?
Buy one of these from Repco/SuperCheap or
Or call into Parkside when you're in town and ask if they can measure your downball load
Or rig-up something funky with some heavy scales.
Full disclosure I work for the company that has a commercial interest in Parkside
With a few hours here and there over summer holidays, I've been able to start cosmetic stuff and fixing the small things that bring a smile to your face...
- Replaced the broken heater control panel
- New backlight bulbs & cleaned the fibre optics for the heater sliders
- New A/C switch that finally stays on
- Cleaned all the trim panels, radio and replaced bulbs in switches
Now all the controls work and I can see them at night!
Getting the basics working makes you appreciate them more
