If you dont know how to do it. Find an EAA chapter close to you or maybe askanother Rv builder for help.
Yep, what these guys said.
From a previous transport of a plane I built, which had a g-meter, I was shocked that it read over 4 g's during the trailering process. I may have happened when I slowly drove over a railroad crossing.
I had it secured with ratcheting truck straps, and thought that should do it.
I think it can be more rough back there than we realize.
