Re: RC: gooseneck chains?

Safety chains are REQUIRED on ALL trailers.....the guy who installed your hitch should have welded rings on the hitch plate. The bars on your trailer are where you put them when you are NOT hooked up to your truck.  DO NOT neglect this!!!!  There are BIG fines for this if you get the wrong cop.

 Recently I purchased a '90 FORD 250 4x4, went to a reputed welder and had a gosseneck hitch installed (great job and works great).  At a recent ride, a friend noticed no chains attached, and said Hum, must be an older trailer. My question is, when I get to the Ag station to go to Georgia, will they AG guys say no go? I know there are pros and cons, but I need to know if I'd be wasting my time, and sent back home without the chains? If I have to get them, suggestions where to buy the "rings?", and where they get installed. I notice under the neck of the gooseneck that there's a hanging bar about 5" long. Is that where they'd hook to? Seems like a dangerous thing to hook chains on a monster gooseneck, but I lack experience and need constructive help. Thanks. Randi in Brooksville, Fl.
