Nothing to the camper, my air over hydraulic post jack came and had to make a new adaptor to lift the trailer up between the wheels. When the paint dries, will see if it will lift it.

Finally put some Goodyear Marathons on. Now I feel safe. Goodbye Trail Express.

Confused the wife with the camper. Lol After two years of ownership I am getting tired of running out the power cord every week to keep the battery charged. I have on occasion charged it and disconnected the negative terminal. Well I charged it today and put a wing nut with a split lock washer on the negative post. It wasn't overly difficult to use a wrench, crescent or socket to disconnect it. But it is much easier with a wing nut. Its not a true disconnect but it will work for me.

Well, had to cut 2" off the bottom of the adaptor to get it to fit. Typical of me for not measuring the difference in the height of the 2 jacks. Made the new adaptor the same length as the old one, but after cutting it off, it does fit and lifts both wheels off the ground. Success!

You'll get tired of doing that too. Ask me how I know?

A $28 disconnect sure works wonders!

It's about as true a disconnect as you can get.

Yes it is, I was attempting to say it wasn't a true disconnect switch. For me its easier than using tools and I am sure Timex will prove to be correct. I will eventually tire of using the wingnut method and install a proper switch. I am retired Navy and we usually work our way to the easiest method, sooner or later.
