Shuddering from Vehicle When Accelerating from a Stop
Drive train vibration and Shutter at start when pulling 5th wheel trailer. Condition is worsened if starting on an incline. F350 long bed crew cab 4x4. This is the third F350 used to pull this 5th wheel trailer, and the only one that has been a problem. Trailer weight has been verified and within spec's, with pin weight of 2600 lbs well within the loading and towing rating of the truck. This problem is usually associated with drive line angle, but the Ford dealer has not been able to come up with a fix, even though they have had the vehicle with the trailer. This problem occurred almost from day to now the vehicle currently has 22,000 miles. Any suggestions on fix is appreciated. James C.
