If you live in fear that someone will play around with your hitch jack, or pull the pin on your breakaway switch while you are away for the day, install an ignition switch in the power line to the breakaway switch and jack.

You can wire it so that the jack is powered while the breakaway is disabled, or vice versa if you don't want your jack to deploy while you are traveling. Or both can be on at the same time.

Cost is about $10 at any auto parts store. You can install it inside the trailer, or outside under a rain tight cover.

That's just because you don't know us! If you knew us, you wouldn't want to spring for the movie!...

We bought state park stickers for both of our kids so they can come and visit us when we are camping.

Lonely Highway?

That's prime material for cruise night! Now you need some remote controlled air shocks to make that baby bounce!

Seriously, I'd be interested to find out how you did that mod.
