I was cringing the whole time while reading your story...yikes. Indeed you were fortunate that the trailer didn't eat your rear end for lunch.

I have NO DOUBT, the good Lord held that trailer together until it was safe for the inevitable to happen. There was 40 miles of deadly road before the point and only about 2 miles of "safe" road.

The trailer broke right in the middle of the safest place for it to fail.

"Coincidence" doesn't begin to explain that timing.

Similar situation, but the tire blew out. Jack didn't have enough a$$ to lift the trailer plus the load on the trailer.

They sure don't make jacks like they used to. These little "Cans" with a piston are for lawnmowers.

This was the scissor style with about a 3/4" threaded rod as the lift mechanism. Like I said.....inadequate a$$. In order to generate the force required, it'll bend the cheap little crank handle.
