Was coming to a red light and noticed my trailer was jumping and then a big puff of smoke. I didn't notice any air loss. Trailer tires all moved when I took off and then pulled over. Was done with all my stores and maybe 500-1000 pounds on trailer.

Anyone have this happen before? He was able to do some welding to get trailer back to proper height, however couldn't replace with new air bag because he needed a lift to do more welding.

That is the first time I’ve seen that. I have had a couple break on the bottom. The plastic breaks and the bag goes basically sideways kind of. That bag should be replaced not welded.

I’m just curious. Was that “puff of smoke” actually smoke or was it dust being blown up from a blast of air?

I’m just wondering if what happened to you could result in a fire?

Well that can't be good.
