flat spot on the existing tire still on the trailer with a locked up break and a busted axle and a bent up fender. My guy hooks up to it, drives less than 100 miles and the axle and wheel come flying off
Why would your guy pull it with Broken axle and a locked brake?

To have it returned in anything less than the condition it was in when it left is wrong. Whoever borrowed it is responsible for putting the trailer back to it's pre-borrowed condition. We all understand accidents can happen, it's how a person responds that brings to light their true character.

Didn't take long for me and Ty to figure out who it is. Hope you can get it all straightened out. That is not a fun situation to be in.

he hooked up to it and put a new wheel on it and axle and wheel flew off, the trailer has 6 independent axles, not 3 axles with two wheels on each

If you are pissed enough to start this thread you obviously know where this needs to go. I guess they don't plan on keeping your business?

Was the trailer dipped in Florida? (Are you sure?) Could this have lead to the brake locking up?
