When in Nevada a few months ago a friend noticed one of the mounts for the bracket holding the horizontal stabilizer had been pulled away from the trailer top. It was so loose that I was concerned the bracket might actually pull free and allow the stab. to drop onto the fusilage.

I would suggest owners of Avionic trailers be alert for this problem. Perhaps it was only a problem with my trailer which is five years old and has many, many miles on it. But you would not want to discover it the hard way!

A simple metal bracket, bolted through the top of the trailer and reinforcing the mount has solved the problem.
