Hi, when I go onto some sites and if the pitch is wet, my jockey wheel slices into the mud and sometimes I've even got stuck if the ground is that wet and muddy when positioning with my M mover, so I've thought about changing the original J wheel to a pneumatic tyre type, as I've seen some of these on sites and they seem to be much easier to position, what do you think, I guess I would need to put original back on when over wintering as I presume it would damage the small tyre standing for months ??
I have never used one, but I have read of a number of people who use them for the reasons you mention (muddy ground).
Just to go off tack for a moment, have you checked your 'Nose Weight' lately, it could be you are having problems due to excessive Nose Weight?
My worry with a Pneumatic jockey wheel would be getting a Puncture, then you could be in more trouble than having the original Jockey Wheel on.
Anyone else use a Pneumatic Jockey Wheel?
I've changed from solid to pneumatic this year, much better when on grass and seems to have a bit more give when using the dodgy motor mover, old one slung in the gas locker should I be unlucky enough to get a low speed jockey wheel blowout!!!!!!

I had a pneumatic tyre on the jockey wheel for many years on my previous van, then when I changed to the present one, I decided to try the (new then) "Soft" Alko type, I have not regretted it, both with movers
Had it on this van for nearly 4 years and used it on many types of ground and never let me down. Don't think I will be swapping it any soon yet. HTH's
