Maybe this Thursday/Friday he can go out and flat spot the tires.....

if the trailer sets more than 1 week---when i hook up--and going down the road a bit--i grasp the controller lightly--and let the brakes touch--why--because slight rust will get on the mag surface--by lightly touching the brakes--it knocks the rust off----in case have to hit brakes hard down the road-----instant bite-----
