Thank you all for your responses, but I'm embarrassed for not having done my research before reacting so precipitously. Mea Culpa
Hey, No need to be embarrassed. You learned something new and valuable about your trailer. What you saw didn't look right so you took the appropriate action by checking it out here and elsewhere. There is from time to time some inaccurate information disseminated here (maybe even by me)(I doubt that part though), so always check it all out. I'm glad all is well.
