make sure you pump the brakes and that your Trailer brakes are hooked up properly

That things a stick right? Towing stuff like that, is that super hard on a clutch, or not as bad as I would think?

Well, Explorer did great. With the full load, I could cruise at 60-65 going up the hills was around 45-50.

The house in Ellensburg is freaking AWSOME!!!!
