That's what I meant by this earlier post:

Good to hear that these worked out well in actual experience.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

chains a good idea

I have helped two boat owners with their trailers over the years. Both had the connection very loose when locked to the ball. The owners had no clue so I helped snug them up. Perhaps the nuts worked loose over the years. In any case they could easily unhitch on a rough road. Without chains it could get pretty messy.
