It's an idea I will leave it to cleverer people than me to work out how you get round having electrics/servos etc attached to the trailer where they will probably get wet.
its been done

You can inflate tyres this way too.

Dry Run (in his original post) is looking for the next big thing, and I have suggested 'T/T Hullabaloo' (Tender To Hullabaloo) which is his ribs name...

Sibs are going to be massive in 2013
