Today was not my day.
First, my SUV battery died. Not my fault.
Then, I got my routine screwed up and forgot to release the stablizer jacks BEFORE I hitched. Then, the hitch thing that swivels down and you lock with a pin wouldn't go down. The trailer was too high because the stablizer jacks prevented the trailer from coming down.
So the stablizer jacks were holding the weight of the trailer; something they weren't meant to do.
Will this harm either the stablizer jacks or the trailer? Luckily, the stablizer jacks aren't used for safety, so maybe I'm okay. I just don't want a wabbly trailer on my next trip and have to replace a stablizer jack or two.
Then, when I pulled out, the trailer wheels locked. I drove about 8-10 feet before I noticed in my rear view mirror that the trailer was being dragged and its tires were not rotating.
The breakaway switch had come out.
I stuck it back i, and problem solved.
How much could the tires be damaged by being dragged 8-10 feet? I can check the treads when it's light tomorrow. Luckily, the campsite was DIRT. And there was a long slots in the dirt, so the dirt was a few inches deep.
It was NOT my day!
