Can you offer a solution to my question/problem? I want to extend the the length of the tongue on my trailer, for two reasons:
Allow far more clearance for turning when backing the trailer, and allow backing to be to less sensitive to turning inputs in general.
But primarily to reduce the existing tongue weight of the trailer, which is excessive.
Given that I know (physically measured with gauge) the current tongue weight of my trailer, is there a way I can calculate the percentage (%) reduction of the tongue weight per 12" (1 ft.) increase in the length of the tongue?
