Yeah, and getting that bottom plate on without you here tonight was a blast, let me tell ya!

So, the BB is installed, it looks like it'll do what it's supposed to do. DW is already bugging me to remove the wheel chock on that side. I'm sure I'll be installing another one on her side when she sees it in action. The install was a bear--after doing Krawler's, we figured the second time would be easier, learning curve and all. Wrong! I had to tweak one of the lower mounting plates to make it fit along the frame, since that was where the hole needed to be. Also had to tweak the frame slightly to fit the main bolt down through. (Tweak=grind off.). Took a while, now I'm anxious to go somewhere with it!

BUT, if you would have measured more underneath the trailer before drilling, you would have avoided all of the problems .

Yep--if we hadn't been so set on centering it and moved it over a half inch, a lot of that would have been avoided. We know now for the other side when she orders hers...

setting a motorcycle chock and fastening it to the floor can not void a warranty

I use the harbor freight one also - just had hard time getting bike out of it with wife having to stand on it when I need to get goldwing out. Will be getting turn buckle bolts to attach wheel chock to d rings on floor next time. It works great making it possible to land bike and get off and it wont move while strapping it down. I also put horse pad rubber mat down to protect floor. **why does this site keep flipping one pic upside down??***

The picture in the HF directions was pretty bad and I installed the rocker backwards. I flipped it around and it worked better getting it out of the chock.

Im pretty sure its assembled right - my front tire fits very snug into it. Wont hurt to double check it though. Thanks
