Stampie, you are supposed to be posting a picture of a Citicar on a trailer on its way home.

The guy who bought this has tried to give me his other one twice. The danger is still there.

Just add more batteries to get the voltage up, it'll go faster.

From what I hear it's like crack.  There's no going back from a 10 psi DSM.  Next thing you know you're doing 20 psi and rebuilding every 4g63 you can get your hands on.

Despite the fact I'm going to spend plenty of time working on it, I'm trying to avoid driving it as much as possible. Finally putting those stupid DARE classes to use I guess.

I'm very curious if you had to back up that dolly / car combination. I used one of those recently and wasn't able to back that thing in a straight line even when I started out perfectly lined up. 
I have never had trouble with trailers large or small. Hell, I've even backed up large aircraft with no trouble. That dolly kicked my ass. I refused to give up for over an hour. Even had neighbors watching and laughing (and giving advice, which was worse than laughing).

Not a good time, my FIL can back up multiple grain wagons which articulate the same way but as much as I've tried I've never been able to back up a loaded dolly

I read once (probably on GRM) that you cannot/should not attempt to back a loaded dolly because [physics]. I did not fully comprehend the reason why and tried it once. I accidentally scrubbed years worth of tread off of one of uhaul's tires that way.

I did, and boy it was not fun, it took me a hot second to figure it out.

In reply to All of the Above : 

Am I the only one that crosses the rear straps? 

Maybe I'm anal, but I get out and check things at 1, 10 & 100 miles too.  The only time I didn't cross the rears, was towing to Florida.  Checked everything out when leaving SC, but in south GA the right rear tire was half way off the side of the trailer.

Crossing the straps is a legal requirement for the commercial guys. Still see plenty uncrossed, but it is a good idea as well as the law.
