Repairing car trailers from below
There are defects on the trailer that experienced mechanics or craftsmen can fix themselves, even though they have not learned the trade of automotive mechatronics. Even if it is easier to get under a trailer because it has more ground clearance than a car, there is an easy way to avoid having to work in a supine position.
Simply put the trailer up – or on its side, as you can see in the picture, all parts of the chassis, the frame and the ground can be easily reached. Two men, two corners and the hanger is on its side, it also works with a tilting device.
The trailer can be brought to a higher place using the support wheel, and the trailer can also be tilted to the side or the rear using various other devices.
A trailer can easily be tilted carefully on its side without causing any damage. Car tires, mattresses or a blanket can also be placed underneath to avoid scratches, the bike should lie on a firm surface, at least part of it so that it cannot be pressed into the floor when tipping over the bike.
Since most wheel arches are made of soft plastic, they are not damaged.
If there is no additional underlay, lawn or various greenery is sufficient to protect the trailer, only the ground should be firm so that various parts of the trailer cannot press into the ground. If the hanger lies with the entire side on the floor, there is also no danger.
The trailer should be secured against falling over in spite of its secure position, such as with straps or supports, a stable tree, a hook on a wall, etc., can be helpful.
Except for the side lying on the floor, all components are easily accessible. The components of the tailgate up to the hinges, side part, front side, floor and chassis parts – all work can be solved without any problems.
Has to be worked on the lower side, either underlay square timber or simply turn the hanger around or simply turn the upper part all the way down.
If the trailer is too heavy for two people to turn and turn, two people need to bring them or get large jacks from agriculture or truck repairs, these can be borrowed over the weekend for a tip or a packet of coffee.
