After talking to the ranger trailer theft is pretty common. If my truck and trailer aren't level it wont release easily anyway. The truck and trailer were at a downward angle. So maybe something with the surge brakes prevented it from coming off. Its very strange whatever happened. I was more concerned that something happened to the components. I was due for tires anyway. I'll replace those and call it all good.
I had an issue over the weekend with my boat trailer. And was wondering if anyone else has encountered anything like this. I had my boat in the water all weekend and had the truck and trailer parked on a hard packed dirt and gravel parking lot. When I went to get the truck and trailer to put the boat back on it. I noticed someone had drug the trailer to a ninety degree angle to my truck and then drug it back to its original position. Could that cause any damage to my spindle,rims,tires and axles? I called the park rangers and had them take a report. I also called my insurance company for any possible damages. All I can figure is somebody was trying to steal it. And most likely wasn't able to get it to release from the hitch. The lock I keep on there was gone too. I' m just trying to avoid any future issues if any damages happened as a a result of being drug like that.
