Has the FOOT OF YOUR TRAILER gotten totally stuck… won’t budge. Yeah, mine, too.

Previously, when the foot of my trailer got stuck in the down position – on the ground and wouldn’t budge, even when cranked up – I got out the WD-40 and sprayed it everywhere.  Eventually, the foot would loosen and do what it was supposed to do.

But this year, since the trailer has been sitting a while, it was impossible to move that foot.  I did everything I could think of… including asking Hubby to move it.  HE could budge it, but I couldn’t.

Not good.

So… the last time the diesel mechanic was here (with his enormous truck), I told him about the stuck trailer foot.  He said, “I could fix that…”.

And today, he did!

He cut off the old mechanism and welded on a new mechanism.  Just. Like. That.

Needless to say, I was thrilled.  My trailer is 23 years old and still in great shape.  I want to be able to use it without needing another person to help me.  And now I can!

Brian and his big truck. He has EVERYTHING he needs on there, including a welder.

The old, bad, stuck foot.

The brand new foot! I still have to spray paint all of the welds to keep them from rusting.

DECEMBER BUCKET FUND – THE DONKEY PONY 5!  All taken from a killer feedlot, these 5 need bail repayment/vetting/shots/wormer/trailering/quarantine.  $350 each or $1750 for the 5.  They are adorable (one pony even had braided hair at the kill pen) and deserve a fresh start.  Can anyone adopt the pregnant Jenny?

Please help if you can!  MANY MANY MANY THANKS!
