Don't know for sure, but someone was out there looking over us. (Thanks DAD ! )
Yes Ditto what Gina said.
I keep a mental list of "things to do and Check" before moving on and one of them is to crank the trailer back up after it is hitched until I see the tires
on the TV start to move up so weight
of TV is pulling down on ball....then a good kick on tounge to the side...if it stays hitched I know it is in good shape for the trip....I will also look at it every stop to insure safety...this is just one of the things on list.
Others include: check that everything such as water and electric is unhooked
Load is secure inside
window protector and all outside hatches are latched down good
door is latched good
Camp site is clean
Wheel chocks and stabilizer jacks up
Safety chains on
I am sure there are more things to do but these are the things I do.
