First Upgrade Done. Fifth Airborne Installed...

Swapped in my 5th Airborne pinbox today. Today being so warm seemed to be a good day to tackle it. It got off to a bad start when I found my kitchen galley slide was rubbing my floor leaving a mark. Our friend Bob talked me through the adjustment process and I had it functioning perfectly in about an hour. Not something I wanted to learn, but great knowledge to have in the future! If anyone needs their hydraulic slides adjusted, I'm your guy... Anyways, back to the hitch. Got it installed and found some wires were being pinched between the new pinbox and the fiberglass. So, back off it came and I trimmed the offending glass. Put it back on, the wires were no longer pinched, bolted her down, and installed the factory Lippert pinbox cover over it.

Thanks! That's why I went with the 5th over the Trail Air. Keeps it's guts on the inside so you can use the factory cover...

Nice combination, looks like a real good color match between the two.

Looks great. can that factory pin box cover be installed on other 5ers? I have a Columbus f370fl and I like that look of hiding that ugly pin box.

Yes, it's a lippert product and I believe it can be ordered in white or black. I'd call the FR parts dept. I'm sure they can get one ordered for you...

The pin box cover is made specifically for us at XLR. It comes to us white and we paint as needed.
