Update on cables. I recently got back from a long trip. When I got back to the house and was unhooking I noticed that one of the cables had almost complety worn thru from it looked liked scraping the road. My bad for not noticing it sooner. I removed them and put the old rusty chains back on.

Wouldn't that happen to chains too if they were dragging on the ground?

Yes, I would think so. I did say it was my fault for not keeping a better eye on them.

Chains have more meat than cables I use only chains also pull heavy eqmt. would never use cables I feel chains are more reliable plus greater breaking point

Chains.. cross them over, if you feel you are going to 'drag' chains, use a rubber strap to hold the center of the chains higher.. works every time.. and if the chains are needed, the strap will hold them centered beneath the tongue of trailer..
