Correct. My plan is to go at 90 at the hands of a jealous 25 year old husband. 😳

That's just nuts. I have a hard time backing up my 33ft TT. But I'm a rookie. Lol

Amen on keeping healthy. My Dad died from heart disease when I was 19. My Brother had a heart attack at 46. I thought I'd escaped that all when I entered my 70's. Then, suddenly, at 74, it all caught up with me. All those big juicy hamburgers, Biscuits and Gravy, Overloaded plates full of BBQ, snacks, cake, cookies, pie, you name it. I thought I was golden as I wasn't overweight and didn't have any of the other old age diseases like diabetes, etc.

WHAM! One Wednesday afternoon I was sitting and watching TV and I had a heart attack. End result was three feet of new scars on my body, one really sore chest, and a quad bypass.

If you are packing a few extra pounds, do your best to shed them. Pay attention to excess Sodium, Saturated Fats, and get plenty of exercise (no, the walk to the refrigerator for another beer doesn't count .

Some workouts to build some muscle and keep the body fit can pay off too. For me it was the difference between 90 days of "rehab" and 6 months or more. The fact I was in relatively good physical shape payed benefits even though I was plagued with the same issue that took my Dad's life (at 58).

For others out there who have gone through the same as I have, I'm pretty sure that all would have done some things differently if they knew they were going to end up having bypass surgery. Doesn't mean you can't enjoy the things (food and drink especially) that you do but do things in moderation and don't carry any more "body" around than you absolutely need to.

Last note, for those who have been avoiding those annual physicals, that's almost like playing Russian Roulette. Get diagnosed with CAD early enough, and have a stent or two placed before you have a heart attack, and it's a lot less painful (as well as less expensive).

I have a Son and Daughter, both in their 50's, and my heart attack gave both of them a wake-up call.

Growing old is kind of fun but it's more fun if you can hang onto good health as long as you can.

I have a 33 TT as well, i struggle with precision like getting right next to a deck or have steps close to edge of pavement so there is not a half step to non pavement section. I think i am above average and some once told me try your best to have the site on your drivers side even if it means going down to turn around. I think the tip helped me learn now i can have site on passenger side

Here is a tough passenger side back-in

Looks like you're sagging little bit. I don't know if that will fit the weight specs for that truck. Great looking setup. I can't wait to read the future posts about it.

For the pull test as soon as the first jack makes contact the second one starts down, stop it just before it contacts the ground (1/2Ē) or so. Complete the test then hit the auto retract. Hope this helps.
