Could have notched the aluminum underlayment strip and used the bracket (like I did in the rear), but then I would have been on the inside flange of the I-beam and would have had to tap the holes for mounting bolts. This style of mounting is an option in the installation guide.
The rear locked and loaded!
And the Front. Julie came home for lunch about this time. She went inside and sat in one of the recliners. I huffed and puffed, pushed and shoved on the outside of the 5er. Then went inside and hopped from leg to leg, side to side and front to back (didn't have the Roto Choks on). Her words..."At least 90% improvement"!!
IMO, you could tell the difference just walking up the outside steps; you didn't feel the trailer squat on you.
Anyone on the fence about doing this...just use my excuse, "But Baby, I'm only spending this money because I'm thinking of you"! Now, if I can just sale that darn KP tripod.
Oh, one last thing...usually this is the time when us handyman pros like to say,"OH S***, where do all these parts go...what did I miss"?
Guess this is due to various installation requirements on different 5ers and TTs.Edited by: Cobra909
