Westbound I-10 past Katy @8am on a Monday....yeah, similar.

Saw a Tesla with bama plates on it and thought, "I bet your trip here was a PITA".

Ya know, I did hear a news story that morning 'bout how the 27th is rated as the most aggressive driving day of the year.
Made we wonder what the significance was for the 2nd day after Christmas.

Keep the weight on your drives. It's much easier to control if you start to lose traction. Let the trailer do whatever it wants to do. Going to ND in hellacious weather I've spent many miles looking at the side of my trailer in the mirror. If you outweigh it, you're in control.

I know it's legal. That danm State CDL book got me concerned about jacknifing the trailer under braking cause there is less weight back there.

When in doubt, throttle out.

So tell me what I've done wrong for the last 4 years driving in North Dakota/Minnesota/Wisconsin winters in a semi?

Understand that the moment you have less weight on your drive axle you lose the ability to accelerate or decelerate with the power unit. Literally 2 weeks ago in ND I was at 40K lbs on my drives, and guess what, I still couldn't accelerate on I29.

Yes on keep as much weight on the drives as you can , but letting the trailer do what it wants? and it's unlikely you will weigh more than the trailer unless your empty? I guess what I am saying is all the scenarios here don't really jive? Your leaving too much guesswork out there. Not saying your one at all but the dingbats on this forum will be loading up the drives and hauling ass with a empty trailer thinking the ice rink is my friend ??
