I attributed it to having both girls (4+6 at the time) in the trailer and heat generated by the ride
Thanks for the heads up Bill, this was our first ride with the trailer. We did about 25-30 miles that day. The trailer was bought new still in the box @ yard sale. The guy wanted $10 but I talked him down to $7.
