Oh the 12 tonne jack and blocks under the jack are mine.

If ever you didn't want the blocks put to you that time was not it. The better half happened to be in the trailer when it hopped off the mega block and swung to the left.


Wait, Wait, Wait!!........Didn't the "hauler" chock the wheels BEFORE unhooking? Or chock them at all? If they were chocked on both sides, front and rear then the twisting couldn't have happened.

I should think that if the "hauler" didn't properly secure the TT then, he should be responsible for reimbursing you for the new jacks.

Nope. No wheel chocks... and a 4 inch by 3 inch post block. Hurricane rains in the area the week and up a couple days before. Actually when we had some problems with the trailer itself repaired a couple days into ownership on the trip home Forest River has yet to cover the initial costs we had to lay out for warranty work. That was September 2011.
