Today going shopping for a flexible arm limit switch. Going to make an alarm for a hard right turn so that when scooter is loaded the trailer doesn't contact its fender....very hard to see even with real tow mirrors....am going to try a hitch location, but with slider we'll see...am thinking slider should repeat to same location on hard turn, but platform mount is also an option. Now, to find switch with a long enough rod to be useful. Grangers list a few, but specs are not clear.

Located the right person to help with ordering correct parts for our unit. Should anyone be interested here is the name and number. Her name was not in the directory I have, I was directed to her by Sheri Dunlap. I did get a very quick response from both Sheri and Crystal. Parts are ordered.

I never said I was a smart man.

We usually learn after our first mistake but there is always one that doesn't.

Didn't ask. I'll see how it looks after everything is adjusted and go from there.

What about using a Alarm switch? Magnet and switch? This could be mounted easily off the pin box with plexi.

I think most people who don't learn the first time also don't admit it the second time!

Yeah, it's been a mess of a start. Still not actually on the road yet! But as long as I make it before 23:59:59, I'm calling it a win.
