fishinnut Check the axle. Is it square to the trailer? Maybe a bolt got loose.

Ichthyguy Do you have the same electrical hook up to the trailer as before? Do you have a brake actuator? The fifth wire stops the brakes from locking up...if you are using a 4 flat wire instaed of a seven round connection your brakes will lock up.

Maybe the brake are locking up and making the trailer go crooked?

ja-knee-sea Does the trailer have brakes??? After sitting for a while, one might be hung up

2sac Might just have to get used to the new tow vehicle. The Tundra is considerably larger than a Trailblazer. Does the trailer sit level when attached to the tow vehicle?

Dirtdog40 It is the same trailer, it is in the center. I do think the alignment is a little off, I'm gonna have it checked. I wish it was a problem related to a few beers. I left there thinking something was wrong with the trailer, now I'm starting to think it was my driving. The truck is somewhat longer, and I think the backup camera was also throwing me off. I'm planning on going out again next week, hopefully it was just a learning curve. Thanks for the reply!!!

big saw Gotta be something with the truck. Everything else is the same. The trailer is the same right ? Is the hitch dead center in the rear like it is supposed to be ? Is front end of truck alignment correct ? Did you have a couple beers prior to backing up ? Just kidding.

Trailer Problem

Hey guys, due to my kids travel baseball I just got out for the first time this week. I could not get my trailer to back up straight. I have had a trailblazer for the last 4 years, and never had any trouble. This year I bought a new truck, a tundra, and I can't back up straight. It seemed like it was something with the trailer. With my truck tires straight, as soon as I went back, the trailer would move to the left. Anyone have any idea's what could be wrong, or should I except it was that I just was not used to the truck yet? Could it have anything to do with the tires, or axles on the trailer? Thanks for any advice.
