Carol, Interesting you say that about Scamp
and jacking up the trailer. It reminded me to share something. Last month I had a talk with a very nice guy from Scamp while they were showing their trailers at the MN State Fair. During our conversation he told me the best way to save wear on the torsion axle
is to store the trailer with the rear jacks down and to crank up the front. He said it would add 10 years to the axle
life. Now, he didn't say to raise it so the wheels left the ground, just so it took pressure off of the axle
. He was the head guy in their welding shop and has worked their for many years. I wish I could remember his name. Frankly, Besides possible frame issues, I wouldn't feel safe working on the trailer or changing a tire with only the rear and front jacks. They'd be too wobbly with the tires
off of the ground. Plus I wouldn't trust that the rear jacks would hold.
