Base Plate: Swap finished

Hardware swap went fine. Sometimes it was difficult to reach nuts located inside the box frame when in removal mode, but once it was off the 2010, reinstalling on the 2012 was not difficult.

Did have a few wiring problems though having to do with the two extra wires for the 12V power outlet installed in the Jeep for the Patriot Brake System. Power is supplied from the coach. Did eventually get that sorted out and everything works fine now.

Now that I know I don't have to disconnect the Jeep battery when towing, I could use a 12V power outlet from the Jeep but no matter, the job is finished now.

From the 2010 to the 2012 (after a little rust clean up and paint).
