    Never doubt. There are miracles large and small.

    Just wait, until you see what He can do.

    not trying to be a smart $@#, but didn't you notice it was fixed during your pretrip walk around? Just saying.

    Here’s a theory.

    Sounds like you had something bound up. Maybe the cold temperature caused things to contract and free themselves?

    You know I was debating on posting this whole topic or not because I knew the pre-trip question was going to come up. But I had to post it anyway to testify this miracle.

    My pre-trip when I wake up consists of walking around and banging the tires with my winch bar. The flap was not flapping because I was parked and would have had to go inside the trailer to actually see that it was fixed.

    Like I said before though I'm pretty lazy and while I will check to make sure the chains are tight and secure I'm not going to be climbing all over them coils to get to the back just for a pre-trip.

    No that could not have been it. Wish I had taken a picture of the trailer before dropping it off, would have made the picture more clear.

    The only wy for this thing to get fixed would need to be intentionally done.

    Here's to hoping this isn't the last time He puts his hand on your shoulder.

    Small potatoes for the Lord. It is a message for you to give him the rest of your broken-ness to fix.
