Gooseneck Trailer Tips
“I set an 8 by 16-in., 1/8-in. thick steel plate against the base of the ball with the upper end of the plate resting on a 4 by 4-in. wood block I always carry with me. As I lower the trailer toward the ball, the gooseneck slides along the plate and right onto the hitch ball. It takes a little practice to get it right but it works great for me.
“I have another use for that wood block, which is tapered at one end. If I get a flat on my tandem axle gooseneck, I just drive one wheel up on the block which lifts the flat tire off the ground, making it easy to put on a spare. Works good even when carrying a big load, and eliminates the need for a jack.”
