Better yet, buy clevis rings to go where you have the "D rings" now in your hitch. Then you can easily hook your chains to the clevis rings. It's a slight variation on how Griff did his. And...

If you are splashing in salt water, your electric brakes will not last long. But they are cheap enough to replace.

Do you have wires going to your brakes? Likely electric brakes.

That's a nice offer. Seems OSO used to have more of this kind of "community" in the past, with empty-hitch and empty-trailer offers like you just did.

Miss those days.
