Well.....

Like the topic says. The bracket broke....and it's gone. I have no paperwork showing the number. And I don't know it.

I know it happens more often on boat trailers from the water pushing it back n forth.

What do I do?

If it's got a VIN number you can bring it in and the county should be able to cross reference to your license.

Go to trailer shop and get a metal flapper. I had a plastic one mounted to my fender. When I broke I just ditched the flapper all together.

My trailer has two small chains hanging down with bolts through the plate. Works great! Hehe

I guess we can add to the redneck joke: you can tell he's a redneck because both his dog and wallet are on a chain
