And why is this unsafe? Looks pretty robust to me depending on the welding. I would prefer this to a type 1 or 5 self tapping bolt.

Thanks guys, that is why I am on this site. I learn something new several times a week here. My chains are crossed forever.

Chains on my 2015 Rockwood 2604WS are connected at the same spot directly under the hitch coupler. No way to cross the chains below the tongue of the trailer. The chart published earlier in this thread is interesting in that Indiana does not require crossed chains or preventing the tongue from hitting the ground. Seems contrary to everything I've always been told about safe trailering.
