Help installing ProPride

Considering changing my Reese Dual Cam to the ProPride system but am not to sure about doing the install by myself. Was wondering if there's someone in the Greensboro, NC area that would be willing to give me a hand doing the install. Would be glad to pay for the help. Thanks

I did it by myself with the help of a floor jack to hold stuff in place, and an 18-year-Old to hand me tools. Any question you can call Sean directly any time for assistance. The directions are very clear and easy to follow.

I have installed my own Hensley four times and have helped people install ProPrides twice.

If you can get someone to help put the control head on to the hitch bar while installed on the tow vehicle, it is a one man job.

Help installing ProPride

Yup I installed mine (first time installing a propride) about a month ago. One man job no problem.

I had a super relaxed pace and basically plugged away at it on and off from between 9a and 5p on a nice sunny and not too hot Saturday. Instructions were excellent.

My pro tip is to plan on lifting the propane tank base using washers. You’ll need some spacers for under the tank platform and on top where it screws down (red circle areas). I went to Home Depot and got some washers no problem. This was the easiest approach to get the towers positioned correctly (close to the propane cover). The alternative is trimming the little guides on the towers.

Also - Definitely a good time to use touch up paint on the frame while everything is unmounted...

It was good not to be rushed and a beer or two helped as well.

You’ll love the propride. You can do it!

I did mine in stretches of time. Take a relaxed pace. Read the directions carefully. Don’t be afraid to call or text Sean. He will quickly help. Also I sent him pictures at one stage to make sure it looked right. And he saw a few things I could change. If you can get someone to help that would be helpful. But don’t be afraid to tackle it yourself. The first thing I would do is unpack all the boxes, set out the parts, read the instructions through, and make sure you have all your necessary tools. The heavy part of the yoke is nice to have help on. I had a friend help with that part.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I have always operated under some advice from Clint Eastwood, "a man should always know his limitations". That being said, I may tackle this alone. Just didn't want to do something that might put someone else in danger.
