Re: Towing 3,000 lb trailer without trailer brakes?
Any load you tow will decrease stopping distance. Any weight you carry IN the vehicle will decrease stopping distance. Road surface conditions will too. Any emergency stop will be longer than when unloaded. The laws of physics apply....so does common sense. You must drive according to the physical limits of the vehicle/trailer combo. Period. This applies whether you have trailer brakes or not.
In this litigious world we live in, Lawyers dictate safety regulations not engineers. Sad but true.
The founder of JeepGarage.org, Scottina06, has a son Max who is in need of corrective surgery from an infection at birth that left one leg 4 inches short. We need to support our Jeep brothers. His family has started a fund on giveforward.com. If you have ever been helped by someone else, now is a good time to pay it forward. Here is a link to that page. God bless you! http://gfwd.at/1rz33PW
