You go Girl! I knew you would do it like a Boss once you got the hang of it...now it's your turn to be the experienced old hand when you see someone struggling with a 5er hitch at a campground

That lube plate had been used for a grand total of about 40 miles tops. They put a slider hitch in which I didn't like and was replaced by a regular hitch and they activated the Reese Revolution.

Well OC - are you all settled in at your snowbird place? Glad you guys made it safe and sound. Various place of the country are having bad weather, so maybe you got to Florida at the right time.

Need to see pics

We have found it's about 50-50 with nice kept to just rundown/just about trashy. Hershey is nice, as is Orlando, Peace River is just run of the mill average, our home park we no longer use, Forest Lake is rundown and borderline trashy.

Hey OC, great pics -- I'm wondering what screen material do you have off of the support wires for your awesome stabilizers that looks like a great mod too :-)

Regular sunscreen we got it and the end panels not shown at Beasley Mfg in Center Hill, FL which is about 45 miles from where we are. Super nice guy and he custom makes them to your dimensions. I think we have about $200 in the 2 end screens, the main screen and material for a table cloth and bench seats.
