  1. You might say... That they are DAMN fine photos's. Sorry... just could not resist. Scotty
  2. Good Description Trainman! I struggled with hooking up the safety cables at first until I started rotating the hook 180 degrees so it was upside down and putting it on from the bottom. Once on.... rotate the hook again 180 degrees again so the meat of the hook would take the force in the event of unhitching. The F150 has a flat plate with oval holes and the width is such that you need to kind of slip the hook on this way. To remove, I do the opposite 180 degree rotate but as you do that you have to move the flap to the open position. A real pain at first but now it's pretty easy. I suggest new owners with F150's lie down on the ground and play around with it a bit. This way you can see what you are doing and figure it out. After that you can do it blind. Good Luck.
  3. Up on the Roof.... Spend the last few days up on the roof of #145 waxing and checking seals. Found that the MaxxAir fan seals were cracked and worn. Removed the old and applied new sealant. I used Loctite PL Marine Adhesive Sealant. It was a bit expensive..... about $9 for this small tube. But went on very easy, dried quick and appears to be a tough, durable seal. Pics attached.... Be careful up there. Scotty
  4. Sorry.. in a silly mood today. Here is your link. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/tree-fiddy Now you know the answer to the question: What should you do if you meet the loch ness monster? Ans: Give him tree fiddy
  5. Yep... that's why I chose to use an inexpensive garden hose quick connect. If it gets hit by something on the road it should break away and then it's like.. $3.50 to replace. If it doesn't get hit then I have tree fiddy to give the loch ness monster .... If he ever comes to my door selling girl scout cookies. :-) Scotty
  6. I put these on this year. Quick trip to Lowes and pretty cheap. Also thought the plastic vs. aluminum was a plus. YMMV, but working good so far.
  7. We bought a 2016 F-150 when we got our LE2. Very happy with it so far. Tows the Ollie very well. I would recommend the Anderson WDH, not that you really need it... a half ton pick up would tow the LE2 easily, but for the liability. Here is an interesting article on that: https://www.hardworkingtrucks.com/get-sued-tow-trailer-with-pickups/ Good Luck, Scotty
  8. I am very interested in your experience with the Dash Cam. I have been thinking of getting one for some time now. With the amount of people that cut you off or otherwise to stupid stuff near you..... might just pay for itself someday. Scotty
  9. KenB, Thanks for the info about adding the screen. I have never had the gnat problem but will be waxing next week and be up on the roof anyway. What type of screen did you use? Something similar to what would be on a screen door? Thanks, Scotty
  10. I would think the best place for this type of arrangement would be under the bridge.
  11. I just changed out the composting toilet and filled with Coconut coir. We switched from peat moss to the coco coir just to try something different. Changeouts are not difficult. I use the white garbage bags and a larger heavier duty contractors bag. The white will cover (mostly) the top section. I disconnect the hose and power for the fans and put it over the top section before moving it out of the trailer. Then I unbolt the lower section and put the contractor bag over that before removing from the trailer. I tried the Coco Bliss brand of coconut coir. One brick fills to just below the agitator. Hydrating is very easy. Use a white garbage bag and any small trash can or other container. Put the brick in the bag and then give it a hose down. The coir will shed from the brick pretty easily. I added water over time and broke up the last bits at the end. Once it was the consistency of wet earth, I dumped the bag contents into the lower half. Pretty easy and the coir bricks are about the size of a real brick, so easy to store a few on your travels. Good Luck, Scotty
  12. Pictures or it didn't happen. :-)
  13. Nice to be able to go camping with the family. Glad you had a good time and hope to see you at the 2020 rally. Scotty
  14. Question is “catfish or chicken?” Why not both?
  15. Bill, I am using a Cargo Glide 1000. It's been installed for about 3 years now and no issues. Here is a pic of the slide and the "shelf" I build for cheap... just 2x3's and some peg board. Works fairly well for what I need to store in the bed. Scotty
