Beer. For afternoon relaxation.

The trailer aid is a very innovative product... but the same thing can be accomplished by driving the good tire up on leveling blocks. Rather than spend money on a product you hope to never use, I would just use the leveling blocks I have anyways.

It is much harder to do this with the Mor Ryde 3000 suspension as you need to get the good tire 4 inches or more off the ground to have all the weight off the flat. The suspension travel is greatly increased with this setup. That is a tough slope to get up in order to have no boards in the way of the flat and why I recommend a bottle jack and 6 x 6.

A broom to clear all the debris off of the slides before you put them in and a 3 foot step stool to reach certain things and hang awning lights!

A retro-reflective vest, for when you have to get out on the side of the road and make a quick repair. Less than $15, and CERTAINLY a life-saver. I keep mine in the pocket, on the drivers door of the tow-vehicle, so that it's readily accessible....

Also, make sure tires are inflated to spec.

Another thing to consider, if you are familiar with one and know how to use it is, a volt ohm meter.

I'm sure I'll think of something else.
I know this is old but I think it is worth repeating. If you have read the manual, you will find that it is recommended to check the torque on the wheels every fifty miles for the first 200 miles.

One should also readjust the brakes.

We've just added a Kingpin stabilizer to our inventory and man, was it worth the money. We no longer feel like we're on a cruise ship when going to bed!
