I've not checked with my IR, but the front hubs without brakes on my car trailer are always noticeably cooler than the...

I guess I see it differently. If you look at the angle at the end of the bar, the axial force in the tensioner is greater than it would be if the bar were perpendicular. Which may not mean much in...

You did well on fuel.

I checked my 79 f350 once pulling 7500lbs with 1100 in the bed. I was going 60-65 and got 6.25 mpg

The upgraded rear bumper and hitch was for the max tow trucks. I wouldn't worry too much about that.

Mine is called out as " trailer tow battery charge relay" in the owners manual.
