Roger the loose lugnuts. Last year after replacing a broken leaf spring on a 20+ yo trailer, I had the same thing happen. I had never re-torqued them. All the bolts sheared off and you could see how rusty they were. To add insult to injury, the boat and trailer slid off the side of the flatbed. What a mess and a valuable lesson. Now I have new hubs, rims/tires all around and I always check the torque before going anywhere! If I could figure out how to make my pix smaller, I will post pix of this installment in the "Adventures of Boating" saga.
