Can you post your log please? Instructions are here. It's more than likely a bracket that wasn't closed right or something

Thanks for the reply,
these are the two issue lines I'm assuming
Error: C:/Users/HOME/Documents/My Games/FarmingSimulator2017/mods/BroadAcresAussieTrailer/RWT.xml. attacherJoint. .
Error: No storeData found in 'C:/Users/HOME/Documents/My Games/FarmingSimulator2017/mods/BroadAcresAussieTrailer/RWT.xml'. StoreItem will be ignored!

https://www.xmlvalidation.com/ paste your RWT.xml into that site it will tell you where formatting is wrong most likely either a " < /> is wrong or missing.

It's most likely around the attacher joint code, because that's where the log is saying it can't read any farther
