    Took it around the block for the first time today.  Except for a jerk when you go over a bump,  Handled very well.  The safety chains are almost touching the ground.  Should I do anything about that?


    I cross mine over which lifts them a few inches. The right chain to the left connection point on the hitch and vice versa.


    Ideally you want the chains the correct length. The chains should cradle the tongue and keep the tongue from hitting the ground should it come off the ball. Always cross the chains and never twist them to “shorten” them. You can also purchase a product like a Chain-Up, seen here but make sure the chains will still cradle the tongue high enough off the ground if it were to pop off the ball.
