only way when you only have so much trailer space... turn the fuel off and ride out had to take the gate off also cause my rhino front bumper would not let me clase the gate

those wheels are very plain and simple I would like different ones but dont want to spend the money on them

I live in the desert, we have no well. I have a 2500 gal holding tank for domestic use and haul to fill it.
In my little desert runner, I used to haul it in the bed because I didn't have my trailer yet, 250 gals at a time, (at about 8lbs per gal) and the roads here at that time were BAD!!

Every time I have broken a control arm, or cracked an axle housing, or have to haul water, and I think, "this is enough, that's it", all I have to do is take a drive to the city and its all so worth it. Soon I will have a well put in, the average is 700 plus ft below the desert floor and maybe a heat pump unit for these triple digit temps. I just got power a couple yrs back. We are crawling one step at a time, but it's all paid in full, no financing anything.

I like it. Let me know how it pulls when loaded on your next journey.

So far so good, I just pulled it across northern Arizona. Ah!!! It's so good to be up on the Colorado plateau here and COOL off. It felt like (power wise), my little 2.5 L while towing. Gas mileage sucked, 9 to 11 MPG, but I was pulling grade almost constant. My son's Titan behind me fared about the same gas mileage.

We started at 2000' above sea level and towed up grade to about 6500'/7000' and back. Best mileage was about 13 and worse was 9.3 mpg. She bogged some on grades, depending how steep, but kept up with traffic, I could have got more speed but kept it at about 60-65.
