I believe Amazon for $12 each. Sure is better than adding a separate cut off switch and fuse on each side.

Still waiting for Amazon to ship!

Ordered a week ago and it said shipping Tuesday. Still not shipped. Seems it's just sitting over at the San Bernardino, CA shipping center all week. Later today it said "shipping today". Nope, expected Saturday April 30. Guess with FREE shipping they wait until the last moment to get you to buy Amazon Prime.
Hope I get them in time to mount the roller for Yosemite trip Monday morning. I know I will scrape exiting the Von's parking lot in Oakhurst.

HopHed, your "U" bolts are longer, because yours is the 3" and you used a shim. I'm getting the 2 1/2", That means mine will sit a 1/2" higher and the skids are going to hit first instead of the new rollers!
Any ideas? Maybe remove the existing skids which I'd rather not do or use the bottom plate on top and buy some long bolts using a 1/2" shim?

You may have enough to put a shim in as the length was almost an inch longer than the width which should give you some room for a shim and the lock nut.

Great! Got another alert, it's out for delivery. Amazon can't make up it's mind about delivery.

Received the roller skids and mounted them like you did HopHed. Not enough room on the driver's side because of the receptacle. But as I thought, the Squared U bolts aren't long enough to add a 1/2 inch shim. I was able to add a 1/8 inch and it brought the roller down to the level of the V skid. Going to see about moving the plate above the hitch bar and use hex bolts, probably grade 8.

The plate on top and hex bolts would work and not too expensive. Too bad you cant squeeze another 1/8" in there to clear the V skid.

Not enough threads to hold the nut. I measured the V scraper and the roller and it's just about the same level. I think it should be at least 3/4" difference, what's yours?

There is only 1/4" difference on mine. I just found other issues on our last trip last week. The right rear jack foot is hitting on the driveway as I pull out/into the driveway. As a result the foot turns slightly and bent the limit switch pin on the jack. I'm going to try more air in the bags to see if that helps at all. If not, I will be making small ramps to stick in the low portion of the driveway apron for when we pull into/out of the driveway. Such fun!
