Equal-i-zer WDH - got it at a steal!

We are picking up our new (to us) 2014 25' Flagstaff on Friday. Decided I wanted to get a new WDH instead of the old basic one I've had sitting outside behind the garage for years (it's probably a death trap now) Decided, based on budget, on a Husky Centerline TS or a Recurve R3. Went by the dealer (consignment) that we are buying from, which also has an over priced parts store ($55 for a 50' zero-g hose? The Walmart a mile away has it for $30!)

They are having a sale on many WDHs right now and the husky is $330 and Recurve $276. But alas, neither was in stock and it would take 4-7 days to get one in. Figured I'd settle for one of the basic chain drop ones that they have for $199.
But the sales lady (super friendly) said "What about an Equalizer?" I had wanted one, but their sale price was $697 ( https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/...-i-zer_94-6478 ) and said "out of my budget!"
She said, "they are on sale right now for $199."

So now I have one and get to figure out how to install it. Based on the parts bay when I went to pick it up, it looks like they have about a dozen more in stock. I don't know of this sale is for pickup only,or of they'll do online sales for that amount, but of you are a local looking to upgrade, you can't beat this deal.

Make sure you get the Equal-i-zer ball, as other brands are too long. You can install it with a normal socket if you remove the socket bolts and shimmey the sockets out of the way. That's what I did. They will tell you that you need their 70 dollar thin walled socket.

Yeah, just found out that the ball for the Equal-i-zer is totally different than any of the normal ones due to that shaft limit. Did note that Tractor Supply sells one that is just a tad shorter (2) shank than the Equal-i-zer max ( 2 3/8) and one that is just 1/8" longer. Might go with one of those to have the standard size nut.
