    On my way home in the rain last week in light rain I went to put on brakes and my front wheels locked up and I ran into a yard,down into a small ditch before my trailer started to jackknife. The only thing that saved me was the truck that I was trying not to hit sat still and I immediately hit the gas and drove my way out of it. Scared me to death!!:eek: I immediately went home and added full coverage to my truck. Only had liability before but I now have full coverage (94 F150). Went back to my trailer manufacturer and added 1 axle electric brakes $217.00. Brake controller for the truck $210.00. Air Springs for the truck to make it ride level and put some weight back on the front wheels $231 plus $200.00 installation(new brakes included). Now I feel much better. Plus my new 23 hp Kohler came in for my 48" Exmark that thru a rod $1800. Man What a WEEK;)
