We are also Hensley owners....ours is close to 9 years old....it's good to know that Hensley responds to its customers so quickly and responsibly! We have always been religious about keeping the unit lubricated and have even stopped along the way during our travels to puck up new lubricant. Brian, I hope things go well for you when you remove/replace your Hensley! Enjoy the rest of your trip!!!

Moses Lake is not that bad. What we didn't realize is that most of eastern Washington is a desert. Other than the areas that have been irrigated for agriculture, it pretty much looks like Arizona or New Mexico.

Heck, Moses Lake has a new Super Wal-Mart. We don't feel stranded at all.

Hi, sure glad that you spotted that hitch before hitting the road. We, also, were shocked at the dryness of Eastern Washington. We spent about a week at Gig Harbor. Went the Museum of Flight and the Boeing factory. We also took the underground tour in Seattle. Not one single drop of rain while we were there.


Oh, and we spent close to a week at "Camp Smartstream" in Port Angelus, Washington. We had a great time with Dan, Irene, and Hagar.

In Defense of Washington

OK everyone, the state of Washington is not just the wet and rainy Seattle area. We have just about every micro climate you can think of, and yes, a large portion of Central Washington is desert like. The Eastern part of our state contains the rich and productive farm lands and famous wineries of the Walla Walla Valley. Moving north is the richest wheat land in the nation in and around the Pullman area. The Palouse top soil is measured in feet, not inches. From Spokane north are vast pine forests and many lakes.

The water reclamation project spurned by the building of the Grand Coulee Dam transformed much of Central Washington into productive farming land. Moses Lake is surrounded by farms which stretch all the way to the Columbia River to the west.

Washington is a great place to come and visit. We have a bit of everything except for maybe a Hensley store in the center of the state.

Hi Bob,

Just to let you know when we met with Dan and Irene in Coeur d'Alene, they now have a new companion named Rascal. Hagar had passed away.

We were not knocking the Eastern Washington terrain, we were just a little surprised by the desert features. We had only been in southwestern Washington prior to this. For some reason we thought that the that the whole state was heavily forested. We are now aware that Grant County, Washington produces more potatoes than any other county in the United States. We are also now aware that there is actually a town named George, Washington which, by the way, has the lowest fuel prices within 75 miles.

Is there any source of information concerning rebuilding/maintaining a Pro Pride hitch?

We hope you two and Lucy are recovering from the Great Adventure. Like you, I've had superlative support from Aaron and the Hensley team. Thanks for the great sharing you guys do on this forum.
