Nope. My hitch stays on unless I am going on a long trip in the truck without the trailer. Which does not happen even once a year.

I see a "Home Series" and a "Contractor Series" which is twice as much, which one did you get? I am trying to decide, not sure how much I would use it or where I would store it.

Contractor: https://amzn.to/2lcw2x5


Also this looks like good idea:


A top rung protector made from heavy duty silicone:

<10 mpg in a 30mph headwind doesn't sound too bad. Did it do better when the wind was calmer?

got 12.2 on last trip ; 60 mph rolling hills, 90 degrees in the Expedition Max, 3.5 echo.


Enjoyed the ride, more like a Limo than truck/SUV. I thought my Ram 1500 was great, but .......

$5 storage solution.
I recently switched to the Camco Rino-Flex sewer hose. I got the two 10' sections.
Storing it was a challenge because although it clicks together, it doesn't stay together.
So with $5 worth of PVC pipe parts, I created the Rino-Flex holder.

Getting ready for a big trip at the end of summer. (Bourbon Trail Caravan) Ordered a few things, and changed a few things. First up, firmer replacement foam for the seating areas of our 27 ft FC FB. A gas strut to hold up the bathroom vanity. A Progressive Industries ems surge protector. Vent covers for the Fantastic fans. A Renogy 200 watt solar suitcase. Battery led lanterns. And a bunch of heavy duty plastic boxes to organize tools and stuff in the back of the truck.

Mike

Because I boondock most of the time, I am always looking for ways to save electricity...

Anker PowerCore 26800 Portable Charger, 26800mAh External Battery with Dual Input Port and Double-Speed Recharging, 3 USB Ports for iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy, Android and Other Smart Devices by AnkerDirect https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JIWQPMW..._ZYzmDbGT69T8H

And being able to get out and bike around is a good thing...
Miami Citizen Bike

I was torn between this and the Rizzio but liked the colors better (how smart is that???) But I used it this week on my trip to Maidstone SP (FedEx delivered an hour before departure!!!) where it was hilly with slightly gravelly/rocky dirt roads and it was a wonderful ride! Behaves very nearly like a big bike and folds up nicely.
