Do you mean to "chock" a trailer??? If so, that means to put a "chock" or block, brick, etc. to keep the trailer from rolling.

If you are talking about something with a fifth wheel, it can be choked up on the frame when hauling it down the road for better handling.

It is a wheel chock, only some I think spell it differently or wrong.
