Can anyone tell me if hitting my brakes hardest in the middle of a curve is correct?

This doesn't seem right, but I've been wrong before.

I tried to use the answer the manual stated, but that's wrong...

Here's a tip. Read the question very carefully. It's worded funny on purpose. The actual state exams are the same way. Occasionally you get a question worded so that if you aren't taking your time and really paying attention you will miss what they are actually asking for. It's a method used to see if you really do know the material inside and out.

The key word in your question is "except."

rofl-1.gif That was my first thought when I saw your query. I immediately checked the time of your post. No problem. You might as well get accustomed to having to be ready st all hours of the day. That's how we roll.

There was a review question not on High Road that asked which of the following would reduce your clearance. I seected being fully loaded since more weight = less height and that should mean having less clearance, right? But the answer was being empty. I guess having less clearance means being able to fit under less bridges = being taller

There are some weirdly worded questions out there.

Yuuyo, on that particular question, the heavier your load is, the more your trailer will "squat".. meaning it could be an inch or two shorter. An empty trailer would ride higher and need a 13'6" clearance at a minimum, but I sure wouldn't recommend trying anything less than a 13'6" to begin with regardless of load/empty lol.
