Yep, if you look in the pics above you will see some rings welded on, those are for the cable and locks.

One thing I have never had to use, but always carry are a set of those emergency triangle reflectors in the event you have to pull off to the side of the road. I got a set along with my GN. No clue how much they are, but could be really handy in an emergency. I'm sure you already have the fire extinguishers with the wheeling rigs. Another thing I found out the hard way... Pull your trailer plug apart and record the wire color to terminal positions. My cord got caught while backing up sharply and I pulled the wire out of the plug. The colors didn't match what they should have been so I spent 90 minutes testing wires and reattaching them to get the trailer wired properly. It is all written down in my owners manual now in case I do it again...

No shit Sherlock. But, sitting in the campground at the Badlands trying to get to the park on Saturday morning probably wasn't the best time to drive back to Michigan to get it out of my toolbox.

I paid $4g for this trailer. I put together a spread sheet and it would have cost me about $3000-3200 in parts and steel. I did not have time or the space to build a 25' hauler. So I just bought :)

I had my plug pull apart 4 times on that week long trip we took. Fortunatly, GM's trailer connector cover has all the prongs marked. I am going to installed a bed mounted plug before the next trip out.
