Re: Unfortunate Accident
The spec for the 5.0 is 4400 lb max gross (2200 kg), 3500 on the axle and 900 on the pin (20 percent).
I weighed our trailer last spring, fully provisioned for a four-month trip, including full fresh tank (220 lb of water). We were 3915 total, with 780 on the pin, 19.9 percent.
I bet that Ram doesn't even know the Escape is there. Does it even deflect when you hitch up? My F150 sags about 1.5 inches at the axle.
