On the way back from the lake today, I ended up having to tow a small boat home behind my camp trailer (due to breakdown in original tow vehicle). My camp trailer has the hitch and wiring installed, so I agreed to do it. Any speed over 45 mph the swaying started, and once when caught by a gust of wind, I nearly lost the boat. It was swaying badly, pulling my trailer, and nearly tipped over. (Because of the circumstances, there was no way to match the trailer and tongue the way it should be, and they weren't as level as I'd like) My question is, once you get a good sway going, almost to the point of losing control, what is the best way to get it stopped? Slowing gradually didn't seem to help, nor did stopping with the brakes. I'd like to know in case this ever comes up for me or anyone else out there.
So come on experts, let me know what to do in this situation. thanks
