After having a disconnect of the hitch from the ball hitch I am now aware of the absolute need for safety chains. I never thought there should be a class in hooking them up....apparently there is.

WHERE did you see that, Robin? That's at least 4 levels of FAIL in one photo.

That's how SOB owners hook up their trailers after seeing a Airstream... Guarantees the hitch and all failure.

Obviously unsafe because they didn't run a safety wire through the screw pin on the chain shackle.
