Well yah- just not sure what else there was to say about it as a tool/estimator (hopefully avoiding the weight police/tow over ratings discussion).

Let me tell you, you did a great job on the whole web site. At least I'm impressed. Thanks for putting all that work into it. Did you really lay that whole web site out? There is some pretty good stuff and information on it. Once again thanks and Congratulation. Another FR first. Now how do you get it in peoples hands before they buy something. Just a question?

Thanks, Glenn and RKR. Yes, I've been slowly plugging away at the site. I strive for about 2 1/4 posts per week (every 3 days is how I've been scheduling them). I have been basically writing things as they come up as questions from family and friends or I see asked often on here and other forums.

Unfortunately, with the holidays - time is becoming a commodity and getting harder to find time to write! The calculator was fun, but time consuming since it had some programming behind it (which is what I do in real life).

We recently purchased a new TV. The hardest part was finding a truck that had an adequate pin weight or cargo carrying capacity for our 5th wheel. Most salespeople just want to concentrate on gross combined weight, which is easy to do and, in our case, it was hard to find a person that knew the importance of pin weight.
