Although I love gadgets and gizmos, I have more FOMM than FOMO

I was going to get the INNOVIA, 1 for the house, 1 for the garage and 1 for the 5er and TOWTA said NO, so guess what? No INNOVIA towel dispensers.

I end up spending my money on gadgets like the Andersen Rapid Jack that will not work and is not recommended to be used on Dexter Torsion Axle, Rubber-Ryde Suspensions.


Then I by a pair of x-chocks to stabilize and help on the trailer rocking and find out they won't stop the rocking when you have Dexter Torsion Axle, Rubber-Ryde Suspension.

I wonder if this electric towel dispenser will work to dispense towels when you need one to wipe the grease off your hands when working on your Dexter Torsion Axle, Rubber-Ryde Suspension?

Where is this written that you can't use them on torsion axles as long as they lift it enough to get the other wheel off. It's not like you are going to leave it there for over about 10-15 minutes.

Here is what Dexter told me.

"Dexter would not recommend using drive up ramps to support the weight of the
trailer on one axle or one wheel. The trailer weight should be lifted from
the frame to avoid damaging the suspension.

Thanks
Jim Miller / Dexter Axle"

And I totally agree with you. Maybe I'm too cautious or over thinking it.
