No they are all full of hot air and have plenty of it to pass around so they let that one go... For now...

Helped neighbor camper in rental TT. 2 year old had locked the camper door with no one else inside. They were trying to coach him how to unlock the door but he wasn't getting it. So I grabbed my storage key to unlock their storage and send a bigger but still small kids through the master bed. All is well now. Also the 2 year old turned on the radio with outdoor speakers to full blast.

Gotta love crazy kids haha

Finally finished the driveway and landscaping around the RV garage.

Sent 25 bales of straw through the blower after seeding and fertilizing. Not the best time of year to do it, so we will see how it turns out.

Went to O'Reillys looking the 1076 bulbs for the lights over the island and kitchen table. Couldn't find them on the rack so he pulled them up in the computer. Computer says we have two. Let me look in the back. He come out with a box of 10. I told him that will work, what are they like 20 bucks. He rings them up and says nope 3.49 a box. Ummmm I'll take both boxes please!!!!

He had 2......commercial grade sold by the box to garages and repair shops. And yes, way cheaper to by in bulk. However, most automotive box stores are not supposed to sell them to general public. That's why he went in the back. They were probably on the commercial shop sales shelf. You got lucky on this one.....he didn't know. 👍👍

The guy screwed up. The price was for EACH inside the bulk box. Walmart has them for 3.46 ea.

Matting Down the Hitch

I bought a rubber mat, cut to fit the Andersen Ultimate hitch, cut out corresponding hole in bed liner, reinstalled hitch.
Used the scrap mat to make 4 jack pads. Cost under $30.

Camped in it! First of three nights at a local place that is exactly 2.3 miles from our house.
Have to work tomorrow, but hoping it is a short day.

I am greatly satisfied with the Andersen Ultimate hitch. Easy and secure, quiet, IMHO it is the best hitch made. The rubber mat will keep the AL hitch off the bed.

Good to know I am heading that way as well just have to get the tow chain options and just mounting chains to Anderson Hitch not drilling anymore holes in my bed.

How well does it work on a SB? I don't like the heavy clunky 5th wheel hitches they dirty and make a lot of noise, that is why I have an Anderson WDH on my TT now

I don't think it will fit my Factory Mounting Hardware on my F350 PowerStroke Short Box, I believe it is designed by Reese?
