Temporary I suppose, but piece of mind. I am hauling our TT on a 5 day camping trip and I could only imagine dropping a driveshaft and the rear-end locking up on the highway.
Otterdriver,
I thought about the same idea as well by using a second nut. Have you done this yet? Any pics? Next year I'll be moving to the lower 48 from Alaska and wouldn't want this to happen. I want some piece of mind before hand. Once I get a free weekend I might try this.
