ezzrider: If I can interject a little advice for your trip tomorrow... If you own a couple of decent floor jacks throw them in the back of your truck just in case. Do you have a spare that will fit the trailer? If it's going to go bad the first thing will probably the axle bearings. Have they been lubed lately. Don't know how far you've got to go, if far stop every few miles and check for excessive heat at the bearings. Try to watch for smoke out your rear view. The reason I'm going here is that I had a failure like this on my trailer and didn't notice it until the bearing had disintegrated and started doing major damage to the axle. Oh and also take a breaker bar and socket to remove your lug nuts just in case.
