I enjoyed it. My wife couldn't stop laughing, ( she has been a witness to my exploits ).

Life needs more laughs.

Thanks

Some folks really need one

Whoever had my stall in the covered parking before me obviously needed a little practice on a real backing simulator. There is a steel post right next to my 12' wide stall (actually protrudes into my space slightly) and the adjacent storage building is close enough that getting the trailer in and out is a bit of a challenge. Once out of the building, I have to back to the intersection to get out. The rainspout that comes down the post by my stall is crushed flat at a level that is slightly higher than the bumper on my Classic.

I keep worrying that the storage folks will claim that I smashed the spout. Fortunately, there is just enough tire scrub on the rough concrete to show that I backed mine in faultlessly the most recent time. If that doesn't work, I'll get out the tape measure and demonstrate that it wasn't my bumper that hit the spout.

I suspect the reason you can't find it is because it is a 15 year old thread.

Isn't that tow vehicle 4WD? Just put it in reverse and back the rig down the ramp until the aft end of the boat floats again.



Or adjust the WD hitch to get less weight distributed to the TV's front axle?

Then get the boat more forward on the trailer. How embarrassing

Hi, no that tow vehicle is not four wheel drive; It's all wheel drive.
