I’m surprised your jacks are unprotected.

Our camper had skids and we drag a lot. They ground through, so put I some wheels back there. We did consider the “axle flip”. Kind of bad that they make things that REGULARLY drag on routine unlevelness.

When possible, I fuel without the camper as much for the lack of maneuverability as dragging. I also try to fuel at truck stops which generally don't have the curbs of bumps AND have fresher fuel due to their high volume AND have better room to move around in with a long trailer.

Lastly, make sure your trailer is level when hitched and ready to go and if not, drop your hitch a notch and see how that helps and if the trailer still rides well (If you are bumper pulling).

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.
