Camper ON with wdh back 43 1/8 front 43
The front measurements are thebsame throughout

Now.... With sprint bars on, I drove camper to front yard (very large area) and then turned and backed into the stone driveway. The shudder was replicated twice . Each time, there was a decent amount of moaning throughout the wdh spring bars and seemingly all along the frame of the camper. Seemed tight and needed more gas to back up.

Without the spring bars on, after several passes, I was unable to replicate the shudder. It was smoother, no groaning and barely needed gas to back up.
My conclusion is that the wdh system I have, Pro Series , should not be used while backing. This contributed to the shudder condition probably due to the increased torque throughout the TV, wdh and TT. May be causing an axle wrap or something .

I feel better that my new beast's trans isn't screwing up.
Thatís great! Unhooking the WDH is much better than trans issues. Congrats!
