Thanks Dick. What brand of locking pins did you decide on? Are you also locking your clevis pins?

I don't know what the brand was. I just bought a key type lock for the hitch/clevis pins. Wanted a keyed alike set but couldn't find one.

You know, they say a chain is only as good as it's weakest link. I've had some that are hard to lock & unlock, because of the twisting... Others that rusted. Just thought I'd ask... More research, more stuff.

I was able to flip the draw bar on my Demco setup over to get the height just right without using a hitch drop.



I had 3" and 7" drop drawbars for my car trailer but ended up getting a 4" drop to get the car trailer to sit level.

Does anyone else have a squeak coming from inside the TV in the entertainment center above the cab? I have scoured and checked everything, even had the TV itself down and the squeak is definitely coming from inside the TV itself.

It is also intermittent which makes it even more fun to chase down. Seems the hotter it gets the less it does it. Thankfully it's a "hard bump" squeak and not a "vibration" squeak, but still I'd like to make it stop.

No squeak that I've noticed, but the picture on that TV distorts when I turn on the big rectangular ceiling light in the living room.

Squeaking is cause by movement, and there is a lot to move around up there. John (JJSpeedwagon) sprayed some sort of dry lube where the cab and shell seal is and quieted his down. Mine creaks too, just haven't had a chance to get in there and look.

Check for loose connections. I have not noticed that with ours, but I can't swear that I have had the TV and the light on at the same time yet. I don't watch much television, that is my wife's job.
