Trailer Jockey Wheel Installation And Care
A trailer jockey wheel is an easy, simple, and convenient device intended for lowering and raising the trailer coupling off and on to your tow vehicle for stabilizing the middle of the trailer and to carry it comfortably. Trailer jockey wheels are made to safely carry the largest towing load of your trailer safely so as to do so safely. Trailer jockeys or trailer riding boots are the shoes that you will wear when you are operating a towing trailer. The trailer jockey wheels allow you to be able to stop safely with both feet on the ground.
The trailer jockey wheels help you be able to stop safely with both feet on the ground. You need your feet on the ground so that you are able to control the direction of the towing load and also so that the trailer jockey wheel can guide you safely to the nearest suitable position to stop the load. It is important that you keep both your feet on the ground because if there is anything obstructing the way you can tip the load or knock it over. If you are unable to control the direction of your towing load then you might find yourself losing control and possibly hitting something else. You can become seriously injured or even die if you are not careful enough while operating a towing trailer.
The trailer jockey wheel should be able to fit comfortably inside the hitch of your truck. This means that the inner tube and outer tube of each wheel should be within the appropriate size and height to match up with the other. Each inner tube must have an overlap so that when it is closed it can slide easily into the overlap and so that when opened it can slide out easily. The inner tube and the outer tube of each wheel must be the same size, but it is not always necessary that they have to be the exact same size and height. The size and height of both tubes will be adjusted by the weight distribution of your trailer.
