Hi. Just wondering if anyone uses spring loaded landing gear snap pins on their rigs. I hate having to get down on the floor to line up the pins in the two holes.

Thanks.

I do not think it can be said any better than Lloyd said it. I insisted on them before we bought our unit

Yep, we got them, too. Makes it easier for me to bend down and hoist the landing gear while DH is ruenning the electric elevator gears that are so dangerous for women.

Thanks guys, guess I know what I'm doing this weekend. Hope there's a supply of kleenex comes with 'em.

Just for the record, extending the legs and adjusting the level of your fifth wheel is the work of the wife, along with dumping the black tank.

This is because after driving from home to your campsite (none of you allow your wife to drive, do you?) the husband should grab a beer and rest while the trailer is parked. Most husbands will also take a nap until their wife wakes them once she has finished cooking supper.

After supper, the man must watch his wife wash the dishes while at the same time watching a football or baseball game on the TV. That's called multi-tasking in case someone asks. Men are very good at multitasking.

You make an excellent point Jeb. Unfortunately the DW didn't quite see it the same way.

Took mine off, I did not like 'em. There has to be one in every crowd. I could not get them to line up I do have stabilizers which make lifting the jacks a little harder. About the only upgrade I did not like.

What flowers would you like at your funeral Jeb?








I keep getting that "Don't you dare agree with that!" stare from my DW and I really think she means it!

No, to the contrary. I am sure she agrees with it but is hesitant to say so publicly in fear of you actually taking her seriously and not allow her to set up the trailer and dump the tanks when necessary.

Take it from me, they love this stuff we allow them to do.

At least, all of my wives have loved it. Your's might be weird.
