Waiting to get a sway control bar …

Weigh the benefits

Friday, June 24th, 2011

I finally got the truck a weight distribution hitch so Rosie doesn’t knock me around in the truck with the bumps in the road.  She and I had a very nice visit with the folks at Croft Trailer and Hitches over in Glen Aubry, NY.  They hooked us up nicely (pun intended).

NYS Inspection

Monday, May 18th, 2009

Ok, I finally got everything working enough to pass inspection.  The last thing was the break-away switch, which was basically ornamentation.

Preparing for inspection

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

The trailer has not been plugged into a vehicle since Fletch delivered it 3 years ago. I guess its not surprising that only 4 of the 20 running lights work. The left blinker and tail light works, but not the right. The backup lights didn’t work at all. The picture below is how I found it when I took off the lense – do’ya think thats why? There is no socket remaining on either side. I’m debating whether to jerry-rig (as opposed to jimmy-rig) a closed unit that I found at Northern Tool or re-wire a socket.
Backup lights

I made a list of the bulb numbers based on the owners manual for running, tail/blinker, backup, and license plate lights. I was able to find them all at Advance Auto (bought a few at Camping World since I bought out the entire stock of running light bulbs at Advance).

And the wheels keep on turning

Winter hiatus and other delays

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

After an uneventful and non-productive winter, I was getting geared up to get Rosie some much needed attention. Unfortunately, I had another bicycling accident, not as bad as my broken back though (just broken jaw, ribs, and arm). As a get-well gesture, my buddy Tim came out while I was home recovering and put Rosie on cinder blocks and got her wheels off.

Wheels off

New tiresNow she’s waiting to have her new Wheels put back on. They’re Good Year 15inch Class D tires I got at Ithaca Tire and Auto Center on State St. Craig tells people they were my 50th birthday present – can’t think of a better gift! Brandon at Ithaca Tire told Craig they should last 50 years like the last ones. I guess they were impressed with how old the others were. I can’t believe they were original, but maybe. The old ones were also Good Year with some tread and lots of dry rot.
