I was putting a boat in off the end of a boat ramp and my CRV got stuck. i have a 2000 CRV with AWD and I have made it through deep snow and started fine on icy roads on hills, so I was suprised. However, truth be told the boat was heavier than it should have been, around 1100 pounds with a fairly good tongue weight of around 150-200 pounds. The left front tire was spinning out in the sand and none of the other tires were moving (it was all sand). I had to unhitch the trailer, in the water and then i was able to drive out of the sand and my brother came in with a truck and pulled out the boat. My question is, why didn't the rear tires try to catch at all? Was it because of the 150 pound on the back making the front end lighter and fooling the AWD?
