Replaced the crappy breakaway cable with a new coiled cable. The old one was too long and would occasionally find it dragging on the ground.
This one is coiled so wont drag, and comes with a carabiner to clip onto the truck and a keychain type ring to attach at the switch.

Made by the Equalizer guys I believe ...
Zip™ Breakaway Cable » Fastway Trailer Products

Found it locally for about $11 all in.

Getting ready for a week long trip to Cape May, installed new Anderson Hitch so we will see how much better this is.

Finally installed the BAL Lock-Arm stabilizers that I bought a year ago. I realized I was going to have to cut away some of the trim strips underneath the trailer in order to get a good seat on the brackets and hit the I-beam, and I really didn't want to do that to a brand new trailer. So I procrastinated. A year. :-)

Tomorrow I attach OC's awning pole hardware.

Left to do is remove the poorly placed water filter, and add cable ports in the entertainment center to pass HDMI cables from the BluRay up to the TV.

Well, have you formed an opinion on the BAL's yet?

How many and how did you mount them?

Pics would be real nice too.

Wife: "Did you take pics? You know someone's going to ask for pics!"
Me: No, no one is going to want to see pics.

Way to go, Timex. Prove my wife right. :-) I'll get pics for you tomorrow.

My first impression? The darn things work! Before I installed them I could rock the trailer by pushing against the side. Once installed and locked, that puppy doesn't budge.

PS: Wife is laughing at me from her office after I read this to her.
