Maybe once the calipers hit and things started sparking it would become more noticeable?

I just wanted to argue with you, it's been a while. I've never driven a huge RV flat towing a vehicle

Yes, and the last time I flat towed a jeep behind my whiterhino baller status RV I noticed that I had forgot to air up one of the tires after leaving the dunes. How you could tow with a flat that would then blow out and cause that kind of damage is beyond me. If you can't notice you're retarded.

How do you know they do this? Just surmising for a moment, maybe they don't like an uncomfortable piece of plastic in their ear if they don't need to listen to anyone...

I just assumed it was so they could ignore the grandkids screaming "are we there yet?"

Wait, how do you know they are uncomforatable pieces of plastic?

I'd like to see that truck up on a hoist. Looks like his ring gear might match the wheel!

Wonder what his fuel economy was. I can tell you that there is a big difference depending on what you're pulling with a gasser RV.
