So I'm hooking up the boat yesterday and I pull it by the tongue sideways to get a better angle out of my shop. Moves but takes way more effort than it should. Hmm.. Look under the trailer and the springs have collapsed on both sides. Frame is sitting on the axle bolts. '94 galvanized trailer that I have rinsed religiously for the five years I've had it. Thought about getting the springs done on principle but put it off. Karma it didn't happen on the highway. Ugly, very ugly. Night before I'd won the 50/50 at a Cops for Cancer potluck and given them back my winnings. Goes around comes around ? Bottom line is I was very lucky. Check your springs.
