Well they are probably coming back off in about 100 miles. The dealer will remove them to check the brakes. When I get to the can opener I will have tocheck them again. I checked them when I got the trailer and on lug nut on each wheel was loose.

I am getting toolbox envy. It only takes two strong men to lift mine. Yours need a forklift.

Michelle's and mine both roll pretty easily. When I have to move mine, I call a flatbed towtruck. Can you say "hernia"?

I had a low trailer with a ramp I could roll it into. I sold it when I moved. The moving company was the last ones to touch it. the out the low trailer it does require a fork lift to move the thing

May be exessive, but I bring a torque wrench with me and check the torque before moving down the highway....also check tire pressure too.

I carry three things. Two 6,000 lb capacity plastic ramps in case I need to lift an axle, a torque wrench, and one of those big lug nut tire doohickies.

I highly impressed some young people in Mt. Vernon, GA a couple of months ago. I came limping into town in slow motion with a shredded tire thumping, thumping. I pulled into a closed gas station, grabbed my ramp and the doohickie, placed the ramp, aimed the driver's mirror at the tire, backed the trailer up onto it, and removed the tire.

Then I got the spare out, found out it had 35 psi in it (note to self - stick back up there with valve pointing downward!), and spent the next 35 minutes with my little 12 VDC air compressor running to get it up to 65 pounds.

Then I put the spare on, pulled it off the ramp, tossed the ramp in the back, and I was on my way. I was also PARANOID about my other tires, of course, by then. It was the second tire failure of the trip.

If the spare had been full of air, I would have been Mr. Cool.

That tire is leaning against my garage now, and it still has 65 psi in it.

Michelle, you really only need two things:
1- Every tool you own.
2- Credit card to purchase the one tool you don't own, but need to perform the repair.
