(OH CRAP MOMENT HERE) i managed to ride it out using 3 lanes and both shoulders. after catching my breath i repositioned the tractor and decided a gooseneck or 5th wheel with better brakes would be a good idea. JD and i made it home safe. WHEW!!! gosenecks and fifth wheels are more stable|
And people still wonder why the DOT is cracking down on pickup-trailer combos??
Glad you finally got it under control and that no one was hurt.
