Looks like its ready Hitch up and go somewhere this weekend!! Looking good there, hope that everything is running tip top now.

We do have several provincial parks open year round with services so it is possible, if we didn't have all this ice last night..

I saw a lot of campers at the factory and really just can't see anything that I like better than what we have. The platinum option is nice, just not the same. Plus, I like my more rounded front-cap that it looks like the tide is swinging back to.

I'll say! It was a nice truck- 400,000+ miles on it, he said.

So, random question - say he pulled it back without a battery. Is that only used for the emergency breakaway? Or does that help the brakes while hooked into the 7-pin?

If he pulled it W/O a Batt.he was breaking the Law! Youroo!! It has nothing to do with (normal braking).

If the trailer already had a battery installed he was ok. When the trailers are shipped from the plant as brand new, they do not have battery installed. It is a dealer installed item, so the new trailer delivery guys HAVE to have a battery while transporting.

400,000 miles? Yikes. What did the driver say about pulling stuff for a living?

This driver said it was a part time gig for him. He works 7 days on/7 days off on his other job.

All 4 drivers have all said that they enjoy the life. Two drivers now have said that they've been to all 49 states. All 4 have had beds built in place of their back seat.
