That's cornering? Looks like he's going 10 kph.

Not at creep along speeds.

Commercial vehicles, yes. Private vehicles, not legal in OR. IMHO, that's nucking futs. You think that fifth wheel gets inspected when the owner pulls it out after sitting fir six months, or the boat trailer after sitting for 9 months?

Never mind taking it on a road like TOTD, where I'd feel safe betting even commercial triples are banned.

I'll take that bet, no truck restrictions on the TN side. The NC side however, DOES have truck restrictions, but the signage is still being worked out, so it is not yet signed.

Except it's not a triple. A triple has a semitrailer and TWO pups. As in UPS.

I think that's called driveline windup. Slight front-back discrepancies in tire size lead to binding in a locked transfer case, in situations where the wheels don't slip (and they don't on dry pavement at crawl speeds). My Tacoma often won't shift out of lo without backing up a few feet-hard to do in bumper-to-bumper.

Now show us some more pics.

yep. often called driveline binding...but windup works, too.

in either case, you nailed the explanation of why it happens and why running in 4wd on pavement without a center differential is bad juju.

yes, even at creep along speeds (and moreso if you turn at all).

if the wheels can't slip, you get driveline binding regardless of the speed. it will eventually eat the transfer case.

Don't feel any binding while moving in a strait line. YMMV..
