Yes, we do a trailer brake test. Our leveling system doesn't provide for a means to have the landing gear jacks a couple inches off the ground so a pull test would have to either be done with one jack grounded or one jack a couple inches above ground or both jacks stowed. I guess I could drag the landing gear jacks with a pull test. But I would rather not since the visual check is such a good indication.


If you have your trailer properly chalked you will not drag the landing gear jacks with a pull test.

Now that that's settled. Could someone please tell me if I can tow a 36'Keystone TT with a 1929 Duesenberg?


Afraid not on the 1929 model Duesenberg, unless it is a late model manufacturer date. It will need the dual spare option as well.
