Seems to me that chains are good to get going on a drive wheel, but wouldn't accomplish much on braking.
Glenn if you towing on a road with a packed snow and some ice under it & you have chains only on the tug it will stop but there is the chance the trailer without chains on the braking axle
will do a figure eight around you or I guess they would call it a half spin in the figure skating world :-)
I actually just made the leap from my fabulous in the snow full time all wheel drive Subaru to a 4x4 truck which I love but I already know I am gong to have a love hate relationship with it each winter which doesnt thrill me... once you have driven a great snow vehicle its always hard to go backwards... I am hope thats just figurative speech rather than reality.
