Hitch time again!

Hi, I know it's been a while, but with some medical concerns and family situations, I've been busy. As I believe I have stated, our Alaska trip was brutal, in as, all of the gravel roads we had to drive on. As much as I tried to protect my trailer from the gravel, my trailer has some new nicks and tiny dents. [cracked rock shield too] Just before this trip, I had totally repainted my "A" frame and hitch parts. When we got home, it looked like this area was never re-done and gravel blasted. I touched up my frame and started repainting my Equal-i-zer hitch parts. Here are a few pictures of my progress so far.

Hi, possibly our first trip on a Cruise Ship? Boo-Boo needs a pet sitter! We signed up for Jackson Rancheria again. Hopefully another random trip in-between.

Hi, I had some more progress with my hitch parts today. As explained elsewhere I use 1/2" copper tubing for spacers so I can torque the bracket bolts without bowing the brackets. Only this time I painted them. Brackets, painted, and installed.

Hi, just coasting along, taking my time, no hurry, no plans to go anywhere yet. So I repainted my spring bars [not torsion bars, because they bend, not twist] and put new reflector tape on them.
