Will there be damages? That is the question!

Our TT is stored outside for the winter. We went to have a look yesterday to see if there was snow accumulation on it.

To our surprise, it seems that when the ground froze, a mound formed underneath and the TT lifted on the right side. No choice but to leave it like that until spring. In your experience, can that cause damage to the frame??

Thank you for your input.

How much of a lift?
An inch or two should not be a problem.

Are the factory stabilizer jack down? If they are and they are not frozen to the ground lift them up to prevent bending them. Weight of the snow load on the trailer is also a factor in bending the stabilizer jacks as the axle suspension sages under the snows weight. If stabilizer jack are not down you probably have no damage due to the ground heaving.

Hope This Helps Tim
