We've got every suggestion here but dental floss. So... [get real Bob -- there's at least 10% of the world's problems that flossing doesn't help]

Inquiring minds want to know. I've dialed up the super-moderator keyhole satellite and it looks like his... er... tongue appurtenance hasn't lost any length.

Okay,

I just got in, and had to park in front of the house since we have a steeper than normal grade on our drive. I want to thank everyone who posted or contributed to this thread. Susan and I were in contact until my phone died several hours ago. The ONLY time I ever hit pavement was once I exited the interstate to travel the 3.4 miles to my home. I hit the pavement 4 times in that stretch. First on the agenda is a new coupler and new hitch jack. The current coupler is 1 7/8 and pretty scary. I guess I will use the 2 5/16 coupler instead of the 2" I planned. The 4 Pin only supplied running lights, and I was glad to have something rather than nothing.

Brad...I picked this up in Council Bluffs...DOH!

Again...thanks to all of you (Other than Vaughn who used the opportunity to hijack and point out something that didn't pertain to the thread). Just kidding V-Man, we love you too

Steve

Glad you made it home without too much difficulty although I'll bet it was nerve wracking. Now, tell us what you were pulling. We're all dying here.

Besides...it can't be THAT special, they just started to sell them again this year.

Glad you made it home OK. Everyone had already given you the the same advice I had, all I could do was root for you.
