FYI if your trailer starts to make a knocking sound while carrying a heavy load stop and check the studs on the hubs.
On our last trip bringing wood home we made a right hand turn about 3 o4 miles from home and got up to around 35 or 40. a little more then a mile from home we started to hear a knocking but since we were only a mile or so from our driveway we kept going. a few hunderd feet down the road the driver side wheel broke off and the left side of the trailer slammed agenst the road. we out dad slowed dowwn and stopped and we watched the wheel go flying into the woods along the road, luckly nobody was in the oncoming lane. luckly we had a small 2 1/2 ton jack in the van so we jacked up the trailer and managed to get the wheel back on with only two studs (the other three bkoke off). we were then able to limp the rast of the way home, stopping twice to retighten the lugnuts. this happened on probuly the worst part of the road since there was no real shoulder and we had to crawl at 5mph along a bend in the road where people usealy do 55.
after we drug the trailer a little more then 50 feet
the bolts that hit the ground
i really wish i took more pictures but i was busy keeping a eye of traffic and helping with the trailer.
Also, can anyone tell me what axle is on the trailer? i think it is a 4'' underslung axle but i'm not sure.
