Strange trailer bouncing with my 99 250
I have a 99 F250 crew cab short bed. I pull several gooseneck trailers with marginal brakes. I have one new trailer with of course new brakes. It is a gooseneck and I pull it with a 10500 lb skid steer on it and a implement or two. When I adjust up the brakes to the proper amount and when i apply them I get a strong forward and back surging bounce to the rig. I have pulled this trailer with other trucks and not had this issue. The only issue i know I have is the shocks are about due on this truck.
What would cause this?
I have a second trailer that I reworked the brakes on and it has almost none when adjusted to max. I adjusted the shoes to the drumms and get a bit of braking but I also notice a lot of interfearance in the radio when i apply them.
Thanks for the input.
