    I was reminded this morning why saftey chains are so important. I was going from one site to another and hit a dip well the next thing I know my trailer making this weird noic and felt like it was swaying. I stopped to find the trailer tounge resting on the crossed chains and the trailer jack dragging the pavement.

    Has any one ever seen the lock mech on a coupler acturally break that was what happened. well atleast I had saftey chains

    Yea couple years ago I had a dump trailer pop off. Had this weird coupler clip that I never trusted... Safety chains worked pretty good... Good thing I was on a side street though.
