I'd like to think the guy who transports wood fasteners looks very different from an adjustable wrench... Haha

Try trailer legs. Easy to use & reliable. I use them with my 42' - 14,000# 5th wheel. Also get some thin walled sockets and be sure you are able to remove your lug nuts. You may want to consider a HD impact driver. Good luck. Safe travels. bg

Labor Day flat

I have read numerous things about the castle rocks and did fine until they didnít. About 2 years old and about 6000 miles on them. Labor Day I-77 N. just south of Parkersburg, WV. Flagged down by a p/u truck that something was wrong. Of course, emergency lane, guard rail , then nothing but open air over the side of the mountain. Tire had blown at 65 mph and completely shredded w/damage to wheel well. No fear, had a trailer-aid plus. Did fine for the bad tire removal, but spare would not fit, not high enough. Luckily, I had a small bottle jack in the truck. Back on the road in 20 mins. My greatest fear was having another flat in the remaining 2 hr. drive home. Goodyearís are on the list for later this week. Very scary during the change. Thought for sure the trailer was coming off the trailer-aid at every passing semis. 1 ft. between the tire and the guard rail. I am alive. 😳

Good advice about the high visibility items. I have and use the folding triangles but never considered throwing a hunting orange vest & hat in. Will do! Probably make a side trip to our new local Harbor Freight and pic up some led flashers...

Grab a head-mounted flashlight while you're there, having both hands free always makes life easier.
On a side note, I've been a fairly regular visitor the my Harbor Freight, but there is an old saying concerning the reliability of their wares:
"Two things I would never buy from Harbor Freight...mountain climbing gear and birth control items."
