Steering Problems with Trailer
I have an '02 f250 powerstroke, single axle, crew cab, 8'bed. I have 2 different trailers I pull with this truck. I have a problem with the power steering while attached to the trailers. It's almost like the power steering is gone at certain points and I really have to crank to get the weehls to turn. Took it to a local dealer and the lubed the fron end and said they couldn't find any problems with the gear box nor power steering.
A friend talked to someone and told him there may be a power(electrical) issue with the signal going to the power steering with a trailer attached. Said it may be cutting the power and causing pump malfunction.
Anyone ever had this or hear of similar problems? If so, any fix? I neeed help because this is a real PITA. Thanks bunch in advance for thoughts/ideas.
