Well... the horse thing was Stevo4vr's workaround not mine, and obviously works because if you are on a horse you are unencumbered. What happens when you dismount is you are back to limping around slowly. Mine was to put the Trainer in the Skyrim directory which for most folks is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim which seemed to solve the fast travel thing, but posed other problems. I still say that since the update to 15.whatever, there are new memory locations that are being used and may be variable depending on the mods you are using. I suppose you could try to set the actor value for carry weight with the console command:
player.setav CarryWeight XXXX
Where X is a number suitable to put you in the clear for the amount of weight you are carrying. Similar commands for Magica and Health can also be applied should the need arise. Perhaps a simple txt file can be written (we'll call it GoTime for purposes of an example) to include all the above, placed in the Skyrim directory (not the Data directory under skyrim, but the actual Skyrim directory where the TESV file is) and then open the console and type: bat GoTime to get several benefits at once without having to type them all in separately. Perhaps better to use the "modav" command which simply modifies by the amount you put in rather than expressly ordering a particular amount. This can be helpful if you find yourself running out of capacity of one thing or other like stamina or magica or again carry weight. So if you have say, 1700 carry weight and you picked up a bunch of stuff in that last dungeon crawl and now find yourself overweight again, you can add a few pounds of capacity by simply: player.modav CarryWeight 500 which will add 500 (or whatever you feel you need) to your current carry capacity. So in a bat file which might be locked to a particular key you would simply hit the assigned key to raise your limit. Alternately, you could simply toggle God Mode, which eliminates any caps on most player values (console command: TGM) and makes you, well, God like! But a dragon could land on your head and it would not affect you, so if you are into challenge of any kind that would not be satisfying
I was so used to the Trainer that I pretty much ignored any carry weight limitation until the update, then I had to drop so much stuff into a chest that I feel kinda naked now. It was my biggest "cheat" if you will, in that I liked having stuff to use on my NPC's right at hand to try out. I like experimenting with stuff in the game to see their effects, you know, various enchantments, armor types, weapon types etc., and the lack of the trainer sort of takes some of the fun out of it for me.
As of now, if the trainer is active, at least for me, I cannot trade with a follower, and some of them that are, and even some that are not current followers but have follower AI, exhibit weird behaviors like not sandboxing correctly and taking on the behaviors of other NPC's. Hopefully an elegant solution is found shortly, (the trainer certainly being more elegant than constantly resorting to the console) so I can go back to endlessly equipping and re-equipping my many followers to gauge their prowess with the various items.
But hey... maybe that's just me.
