Horatio is bang on the nail with getting that nose weight correct. I don't hit the 75 Kilo mark, but
I'm certainly not far off it. Also my rig rides pretty level.
Although after my first outings I was convinced that the Lag 1 RTDT towed much better,
I'm now having to change my mind at first with the Lag 2 when towing I was always using the cruise control, this obviously on any incline was always fighting to maintain the preselected speed causing the inevitable common rail injection bark, which gets up my nose.

However last time out which was last week, I left the C / control alone, JC what a difference that made while still aiming to maintain around 60MPH I just let the engine fade when on an incline which gave me a much more comfortable ride and without the sound of the engine constantly trying to maintain a pre set speed, it went like a goodun
