Some might say they didn't want it to fall off, I like to think it was to stop the ute rolling away. :P

Yes, that's my brand new trailer. Yes, that's my neighbours fence. Yes, you shouldn't use the jockey wheel to raise the front of the trailer as high as possible to stop water pooling on the trailer's tray when its parked facing downhill on a muddy clay surface. Especially when only the front axle is braked, and lifting the front of the trailer results in taking all the weight off the front (braked) axle.......

To make matters worse, there was no way to get behind the trailer to pull it back up the hill, too much bush / trees. Had to get a tow truck in to retrieve it. At least towie made me feel a little better by regaling me with tales of pulling cars out of dams, out of the water at boat ramps, etc, etc.
