First real trip of the year

Unread postby Zinger on Mon May 12, 2008 9:37 pm

The first trip of the year is now behind us it went off without a hitch... except the one on the truck. The only issue I had was side to side movement even with jacks I did use my bal wheel chocks Could tightening them too much cause issues with rocking. I will have to experiment.
Have a good one

Too much winter FOOD!? :lol: :lol: Just picking. Don't see how the chocks being too tight would have a negative effect, but you never know. My first trip went well also, even though it was for job training. Found a couple of sink fittings leaking again, but caught them right away.

Maybe time to invest in a set of JT's!

Correct!
I should start asking JT for a commission on these things, the number of times I have recommended them and then friends buy them!
Sets available for both TTs and 5ers. Here are the front ones on a 5er (2 also go on the back stabilizers)...
