Check those trailer tires, and double check your spare

Just came back from a trip up the Middle Fork of the Boise River and saw two vehicles stopped on the road side with flats. Trailers often sit for months and while the tread looks fine, the sidewalls can crack and blow out, especially during hot weather. Also make sure your lug wrench fits your trailer lugs, and the jack fits under the axle. Basic stuff, but it’s easy to overlook, and a flat can go from an inconvenience to a weekend catastrophe.
