Default 07 ram 1500 4x4

hi my 2007 ram 1500 4x4 has a vibration cummig from the front end i can feel the shake in the center arm rest and coffey holders shake as well it comes on at 40km to about 55 km,it does not matter if its in 4x4 or 2x4 i also tryed turning off the motor in (N) the shake is still ther,it was at the shop the other day the techs looked at motor mounts,u-joints,ball joints and looking for play in the t-case ect.Heres the weird thing it only does it when im toeing my 2200 lbs boat, soon as i am not toeing the boat the truck runs 100% normal.I pulled my boat all summer last year with no isues what so ever and my shop spent 4 hours trying to figure this out any help would be great.thanks

Are you sure the problem is not with the boat (trailer) and being resonated through the hitch? Have you tried pulling a different trailer or having your boat towed by a different truck?

Trailers often end up with bearing and tire issues due to neglect. This is NOT a premeditated effort by the owners, but rather a normal occurrence with an item that sees minimal use.

My work trailers are used all the time so see very regular maintenance. My little utility trailer/golf cart trailer sees very little use and gets maintained every time something goes wrong with it. Yah.....not a maintenance schedule to be proud of.
