Default What Do I Need?

I'm leaving Tuesday morning from MA and going to FL to haul my boat back for the first time, what should I bring?

I'm only planning to get out of the truck to hit the head and I'll hide my plate.

Make sure to have a good spare and with so many shops closed a spare set of wheel bearings would be a good idea. A set of tools to do repairs and a Jack. I would also ask the seller to have the wheel bearings serviced and tire pressure checked.

Then before you leave, pull one of the wheels and check that they actually did the work. Ask me how I know.

Lol. Funny answer to my funny post.

Yup. All the above. Cheap temp gun works great too check bearing temps every 2 hrs or so. Air pressure gauge too. Set tires near max psi recommended.

Long Drive, recommend 2 spares. Unless tires were replaced within the year. Heavy enough jack, or wood platforms to drive up on to change flat.

I've only used the trailer three times, but it's a new Myco triple axle with one spare. I should of got the second spare instead of the ladder, I don't seem to use it much.

I appreciate the information, I'm bringing all my drinks, snacks and a pillow.

yea I thought about saying two spares but then thought carrying two was just something a paranoid bastard like me did.
