    Default 4x4 Trailer recovery in soft sand

    Hi All,
    When towing a 4x4 trailer through very thick soft sand, it is normally the trailer that got stuck.
    After seriously got stuck in deep soft sand on the West Coast, I came up with the following solution to recover my 4x4 Trailer that worked for me.
    - To prevent the jockey wheel to sink into the sand when pulling it out of the sand, I place a piece of conveyor belt under the jockey wheel and undo from the vehicle.
    - To prevent the jockey wheel pulled off from the conveyor belt by the recovery vehicle, I secure the belt to the front of the trailer frame.
