Finally got around to getting some individual pics. Mostly used 1/8" 2x2 tubing, 1/4" plate, and 1/8" 1x1. Used a cut up lube plate for bearing surface, will replace with actual full diameter nylon once home. Also intend to strengthen the bumper mount.

Wish I had more time to engineer and fit to camper instead of engineering, building and mounting in 3 different locations. I'm gonna make some modifications when I get back.

I bought a 26 gallon water tank, added a pump, the pump plugs into my trailer connection on the back of my truck. It worked great on our trip to a state park with no water, made refilling the fresh water tank a breeze

Dont know about mods...

I was dealing with this...


When I found this


Looks like that tire may have taken a hard hit and when the u-bolt contacted the frame, it cut clear through the ground wire. I have things rerouted so that cant happen again. It happened a while ago, I remember noticing the tire had a funny shape to it months and months ago, but didn't realize it was starting to seperate. Trailer is only 16 months old, with maybe 5k miles on it.

Could have been way worse, I suppose.
