How's your bed covered ?
You have a tonneau cover with a hole in it for the hitch ?

VERY nice setup. I like the look of that a lot.
I was thinking of getting a tonneau, but was thinking of either one of the folding ones that I could leave folded back when towing, or perhaps a rolling one.
Having the hard cover with the mod looks very smart.

Slightly modified????.....anxious to cross your path someday to see it....looks nice....I had a hard Undercover cover....gave it up when we got the 5th wheel for a hard tri-fold Undercover Flex cover...still have some issues with bumping at times....I have a TrailAir pinbox on our Silverback....have also changed to a Slider hitch, too.....have a 6.5 ft bed.

Slightly and highly do sound a lot alike.

My dealer installed my hitch and a 2nd 7 pin connector just inside my tailgate when we bought the 5th wheel....hooking up is a breeze....have never used the other connector over the tailgate.

so with that hard cover is it hard to get to the hitch release as i'm thinking with the 5ver hooked up up don't have much room to lift that up to access the back and you have to have it closed when hooking up correct??
trying to picture all this in my mind

For the ones having trouble plugging in....i can easy reach mine with the tailgate down. It is located behind the rear wheel.

If you cant open tailgate while connected, then i could see that being a problem.
