What is the emergency?

Towing a 8k lb load with no trailer brakes and no tongue weight. Good flocking luck




Woke!

bring another truck down and tow yours back

Here's how NOT to do it ((Read article). ;)




A. Use a capable diesel truck to pull it. It's not that heavy.
B. Don't try to pull it too fast up a grade
C. Watch your temp gauges.

Do not recommend flat towing a big truck with a similar-weight truck. Your braking ability will be scary reduced.


He's not suggesting to use one of your EV's. This one is outside of your wheel house.

Thanks Doug for the correct term for 'back hauling' that I was able to take advantage of in the way back machine.

There must be others that could use this opportunity when needed.

Riding in a big rig for the first time, was a reward of its own in my life's experiences that always be remembered.

I have rarely towed anything and am more than happy to leave that to other's.

Life is an adventure and we are all along for the ride while it lasts.

Thanks to all here every day.

This post has been helpful and a great reminder of how helpful Nomads can be.:light:

I think we have found an arrangement to get the truck back to Tijuana in a few weeks. All I had to do was look in my back yard:biggrin: Heard a bunch of commotion earlier today behind our place. Turns out is was a truck with a flatbed trailer picking up an old water truck.
