Trailer drags in driveway

When we pull out or pull in the driveway, the trailor drags on the gravel drive or blacktop road. What drags is the motorized stablelisor. The rubber that covers the motor has been tore. I repaired it with tape.

My question is there something like wheels that I could mount under the stablelisor to protect it? I thought about a skid plate.

Do you possibly have a picture of the trailer actually dragging or one of the damaged motor or the side view of the rear of the trailer?

Tried drag wheels on camping world and can't find anything. Could they be called something else?

Yup, skid wheels is the correct terminology. Either way get the 6" because the extra clearance can't hurt. I got mine thru the dealer but I bet you can find them online too.

Found them on etrailer like jwedell said. Have to do some checking to see which ones I can use. It will have to wait a couple of weeks. Heading out for a ten day camping trip on Thursday.

etrailer does a great job with their site and videos. They make me feel guilty when I order from Amazon. But I loved Amazon first.

If you tore the cover on the Stab/jack motor,you have a REAL problem with clearance! Adding wheels or skid plates will make the problem worse.Whatever you ADD will touch before the object you are trying to protect! What is your clearance from top of tires to the wheel well? Youroo!!Your Rockwood frame is NOT made to support from thr Rear!
