If you don't have access to a quad with a winch you could hook a tow strap to your truck and pull it tight, then jump on the middle of the strap. You can bend it back into place.

We took a small step stool along this week and it serves the purpose until I can get the step fixed.

I hear you....when I get too lazy to pull out the step, it feels like I'm going to either rip my pants or groin getting in / out...

We have the torsion bar axles so there is no flipping them to raise ground clearance. But I have never had an issue with dragging anything. I like the way the trailer tows, but dumping is often an issue. The connection on the sewer line is level with the trailer bottom and is pointed almost straight down. It almost always dumps a little water when you pull the cap and we have an issue with hose drainage at times.

My solutions were: 1) to get one of the caps with a hose fitting on it. That way I can hold the hose under the small cap, open that to let the water drain and then remove the larger cap. 2) I found a compact clear plastic right angle elbow which I hook to the trailer and then hook the hose to it. I wind up with a height that is fairly close to that of the higher trailers and if I use one of the slinky type hose supports, I'm good 95% of the time. There are a few low lying campgrounds that have high stand pipes on the sewer lines so they don't fill up in flooding conditions. About all one could do there is have a pump.
