Seen a few of those boats laying on thier side off the trailer in the ditch too.

I pull my wheels, check the hubs, repack and service the brakes once per year.... I do a lot of towing though.

I also spend a lot of time on the road without a trailer and watched trucks get pushed through red lights by thier trailers, rear end other cars and generally loose control. I may have been off a little on my original explaination but a lot of people call on me about adding springs to the rear of thier truck or air suspension and it only fixes the looks not the safety.

Maintaining and operating a trailer needs to be taken more seriously because I have known a few people who have been killed because the driver didn't understand what they were doing... interestingly enough it is usually someone other than the driver who dies (passenger, other motorist)
