Pulled all four tires and hubs. Checked brakes and replaced all four rear seals(blown) on my 2012 Silverback to get it ready for first run of the season.

Finally able to put my Rock Tamers together. I don't like the little back-and-forth shimmy on the receiver so went to every parts store in town hunting for a receiver clamp but no luck. (So ordering one on-line) The shimmy makes it uneven in the pic and the discovered they are too wide to fit in the truck bed so put up a clamp in the garage for storage. Overall, I really like them and don't think they will hit the bumper while RVing around.Click image for larger version

You can drill & tap the collar of the hitch portion of the flaps and tighten it that way. Similar to what I did to my hitch itself.

Swapped out our Pro Series 16K standard hitch for a Pro Series 16K "slider" hitch with my hitch dealer....was having a bumping issue with my folding bed cover on the TV since I had put the TrailAir pin box on.....this looks like it'll get me out of the problem when I'm backing.

I would like to do that...not even sure a hitch bracket would fit because the flaps already take up most of the room. (And I have a skinny, metal shimmy that I tried putting inside the receiver opening when putting in the hitch but it wouldn't fit....frustrating!)

I'm not sure what you did in the picture...did you drill through the truck receiver on the left/right side and then screw in metal screws to hold the hitch tight?

Another similar example...I welded a ground down "coupling nut" to the corner of my bike rack receiver (after drilling a hole of course!). I chose the corner to make absolutely sure there was no movement in any direction. Works flawlessly.

Snow has melted and spring has sprung here in Missouri. Going to get her out of storage this weekend and prep for another season of lakes, rivers and camping!
