Re: Important

Working on a trailer issue. With a 7-pin plug the trailer still grounds through the coupler and ball? I have no lights on my trailer now. I did last fall when I used it. The biggest difference is the ball is alot more cruddy than it was.

On a side front. For the guys who have used the marshmallow style helper bags. Firestone or Airlift? The price is a wash on them and I haven't found enough negatives or positive from either one to sway me.

Re: Important

I always ground through the plug. relying on frame and ball is asking for trouble.

Re: Important

rented a sander to start stripping the wood floors upstairs...discovered right away that the first room had an old wax finish. fortunately, i think its the only room in the house that is that way. i think its still the original finish. the rest of the house appears to have been re-done at some point. i went to town with the sander first before realizing it was wax and clogged up about a few sheets of drum sand paper...ugh. now i'm down to doing the edges of the room. its taken me damn near all day to get the wax off. the good news is the hallway wood stripped clean in a few passes. it appears that its the same finish in the rest of the rooms upstairs. crossing my fingers

You'd have to hit an undercut ledge that was the same height. I've never had a scratch on that tube or the plate.

I don't wheel so it's cool anyways.

Important

My day consisted of dove hunting followed by putting a tire on our pull behind bike kid wagon followed by a bike ride with the family followed by beer and Jack Daniels burgers on the grill.

Been a good weekend
