Bouncing load, tandem position
by Joe Welch
Rookie driver here. Been driving for a year and had something happen yesterday I've not experienced before.
Picked up a load, approx 35,000 lbs, sensor showed 29,000 on my drives. No issues until I got to the freeway. Once I got up over 60 mph every seam in the pavement or slight bump I was bouncing and jockeying around like crazy.
I thought maybe my tandems were too far back so I swung into a Pilot since I needed fuel anyway but once I started filling up I checked my tandems and they were right in the middle of the slide track.
Any veteran insight would be very appreciated! Thanks in advance!
