    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Front axel tires on the trailer lifted off the ground after unloading. It’s a power only trailer and was fine when I picked it up but it was fully loaded.

    It more than likely has an automatic lift axle on it. That axle only goes down when it has x amount of weight on it. Saves on tire wear and a little bit of fuel.

    Looks like the lift axle bags are inflated.

    Edit: already solved

    Oh ok. It’s just a basic ##### dry van so I didn’t know if it had a lift axel

    Our newer tankers do that. You can opt for lowering them by turning a knob either in the box or attached to the frame. I love this system cause it tells me when we're done unloading.
