That's good to know. I don't think I will have any problems. I'm going to do half a load the first time just to be sure. Thanks for the input guy's.

The clue is to never use the brakes, because if you overheat them, you are SOL. Wise move to try a run downhill empty, always keep it in lowest gear until road levels out. After some practice plan on using brakes for one stop only-always keep that in reserve.
