truck shutter, vibration, shakes
I don't know how to describe this but when I take off from a stop my truck shutters,shakes it does it not towing my camper but it is more noticeable when towing my 35' 8800 lbs travel trailer. It is ok once it get going it just happens from a stand still. any ideas would be great

the truck is 2005 3500 single rear axle diesel

Sounds like a erg valve. I may be wrong so don't quote me. My truck did the same thing and it kits a code eventually but it progressively got worse. Someone else might have a suggestion but that's they best Ive got.

Does it feel like engine or driveline? I have not had any issues with my egine or electronic sensors. I would first check the towing brake to see if it is properly adjusted so that the brakes on the towed vehicle is not locking. If not that, then I would check the center support bearing on the drive shaft (if you have one). Good luck.

I took the truck to merlins they couldn't see anything and didn't notice anything when they drove it, Next I took it a small diesel mechanic shop to have the Edge Insight Monitor installed when he drove it he said it was the rear u-joint so I took it do a dodge dealer to have it check because I have an extended warranty
it was the rear u-joint they replaced it the shakes are gone. :smileup:
