Chains or cables on the front axle wheels of the trailer. Don't let your trailer push you down hills, take them slow. Back off, give yourself plenty of time and space. Never let your fuel tank get below half. Never on the road before 9:00am and off before 3:00pm. Seat belts, a bottle of rum and your set..!
P.S. the rum is to calm the nerves..!

One more item to add is do not drive on slippery roads with your cruise control on! Coming from northern Alberta and running a tow truck a couple of years ago I have seen too many people who hit the ditch because they had their cruise set. Your cruise control will not disengage when the tires begin to spin. Then most people instinctively will stomp on the brakes to turn the cruise off which will throw you into a spin. Ryan.

The weather cooperated and we reached Florida in one piece. Now we need to find a place to wash the salt and grime off. I'll look for the Blue Beacon or other place in Panama City Florida to accomplish this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It'll be tough finding a place to wash it. I saw a couple of big truck washers on the way down to FL, but few and far in between. Best case scenario you can use a power washer if you have a lot of muck caked on. The next best thing you can do is get some salt terminator (the one with the mixing cup adapter) and wash it at your campsite. I buy it online, but a lot of boat shops will have it.

Glad to hear the weather cooperated and you made it to Florida safely.
