Looking forward to some good weather. The snow has melted, for the most part, just some small piles left and they will melt tomorrow in the rain.Chris,
I saw you had bumped this thread and I caught up on your post #76 which I enjoyed watching (and listening to). Bing sure could croon....
I'm not on Fakebook but thanks for keeping us updated in this thread.
See you and DW down at Gulf in May. Hopefully we can have some good weather.
You may have - it's only a half mile as the crow flies. About 20 minutes walking couch-to-upper-deck-seat (used to be 15 min but there are metal detectors to deal with this year). When you gonna come visit on a game weekend? Bring the car and not the Volvo truck (parking is tight in my 'hood. Tiggerdad has been here and can explain.)Looking forward to some good weather. The snow has melted, for the most part, just some small piles left and they will melt tomorrow in the rain.
We will make the trip down, some banana bread in tow....
New fifth wheel pin box has shipped, but maybe stuck in Kansas due to the blizzard. Wish it was here, would be nice to change on Sunday when it is supposed to be 60 degrees outside.
Was watching the Bama game on TV the other week, showed an aerial view of the stadium and town, think we saw your house......
A cell-phone with Bluetooth works well for this also, if you have enough data. We don't have a Sirius radio in our tow vehicle, so I will simply access it through my cell and that works 95% of the time.Well, during last years travels DW was not thrilled with having to change CD's or try to find a radio station all the time. We could use a new radio in the truck, but in the mean time she will be able to use her new Sirius/XM. It is a portable unit and will be able to travel between all our vehicles, need to install antennae later on for her. She also got a boom box home unit so she can listen when she is home.
dont know if you changed your pin box yet, when i changed mine, i put it in the hitch, leveled it with some cribbing and back up normal to hook up 5'er, lined up perfectly, installed bolts, torqued and done, it was a very simple one man jobSo Santa stopped at the house.....well ok it was the UPS man. Our new pin box was delivered, and boy is it heavy, 84 lbs. So I now have a project for warmer weather, and after we get the trailer back from having warranty work done in Jan. Hopefully they can fix our GFCI circuit and fix or replace the bathroom fan.
When I install it, I will take pictures of the process and document the difference in construction between the two pin boxes.
I have not changed it yet. Have warranty work that needs to be done on the trailer in Jan. Don't want to give them any reason to claim I have voided my warranty. So it will wait until we get it back just before the camping season.dont know if you changed your pin box yet, when i changed mine, i put it in the hitch, leveled it with some cribbing and back up normal to hook up 5'er, lined up perfectly, installed bolts, torqued and done, it was a very simple one man job
I suppose without a bed it would be a little more difficult[/QUOTE]I know several people that have changed theirs as you describe. In my case still a two person job, as I need to get it in the hitch, but need someone else to back me in.
