And the guy standing behind it is asking to get flattened... Standing In the left lane of a highway around a blind corner is never a good idea

Christ!!!
That's why I always check trailer hitch (gooseneck or bumper) and wiring connections with a fine tooth comb. Actually saved myself from a disaster yesterday. A new guy who works for the broker was going to cross the border with our animals loaded on a bumper pull. Checked his truck out of habit and he hadn't even bothered to secure the coupler properly or install a safety pin. Would have been on the hook for 18 whitetails plus whatever other mayhem the trailer did. Ripped into him for being a Dumb Azz.
@thebravo is right the gal standing there has a death wish.:eek::eek::eek:

That little safety pin for the ball coupler isn't there for decoration! Glad you didn't slam into that mess

No matter how many times I check, I’ll usually check My connection one more time before I leave the driveway

Yeah, the chase cam is a $99 special. That PapaGo is still going strong up front and it's almost 10 years old.

Lucky chains were hooked up. I always triple check everything is in order when towing trailers.

Thanks for sharing! Glad everyone looked alright
