if you blow an air bag on your trailer, and you have a light load, can you keep going for a short distance to get it repaired??

A blown trailer air bag can happen,mostly for no reason at all. Or it will blow when you slide wheels backwards without letting the air out of the suspension first. Can you keep going?? Well if the compressor keeps up,and the tires don't rub on the trailer, technically yes! But you can end up with suspension famage and you can damage the other side bag by overloading,
