  1. Ron I mounted the I shift to the plastic panel on the seat in the same location as the OEM seat using the OEM bracket. It is still going strong after 2 years and 100 lb dogs jumping on it. The Volvo adapter plate was mounted 180 degrees off, luckily I noticed it before I mounted the Seat. Safe travels Bob
  2. Two Thumbs up on the Knoedler Air Chief. We purchased Drivers and Passengers.... a little pricey but well worth the money. Bob & Kay
  3. Awesome Job!!! Farmers are the King of Recycling LOL! It looks like it should hookup to the pickup as well. Many more uses than Just carrying your Ramps.
  4. The resource guide has a list of service centers, with comments of the service provided. http://www.hhrvresource.com/node/95
  5. That's how we had to do it as well. Commercial until registered as MH.
  6. This might not help everyone since our policy is part of a commercial farm policy but if you own a farm or a company it might apply. We just paid our premium to Auto-Owners Ins. Co. for 2020 which included 2 vehicles for a total cost of $1,300. The first vehicle is a 2000 F350 PL PD only, it is listed as being principally garaged and used on the farm by a 67 yr. old fart. The second Vehicle is a 2012 Volvo MotorHome with collision, a $5,000 deductible and is valued at $78,000. We are listed as the interested party and the lessor of the Volvo. We are stated as an additional insured and loss payee. We also have 2 personal vehicles that are insured on a different personal policy with Auto-Owners which might influence the premiums. I have to quote and 2X Rick......... "Is this all clear as mud? I hate insurance, until I need it".
  7. No camera for the first year. Lining up the hitch side to side is similar to a commercial trailer, the issue you have is getting the height of the trailer correct. I Usually had to climbed out of the tractor to take a peak at the height when I was getting close if I didn't have an extra set of eyes to make the adjustment. We now have a camera which is nice and gives you the ability to see the hitch connect and lock but they aren't necessary. With your experience you won't have any problems.
  8. Agree with Phil (Big5er), and Georgia. Have your story straight with your state laws in hand and make sure you have insurance. The Insurance might be provided with the temporary plates from the sellers company but I would check with them. Our truck was 1000 miles from home, the commercial hitch and air lines were removed. We did avoided the Chicago traffic for our first trip!!!!!........ but we did smile as we drove pass all the weigh stations. 50,000 miles later....we have never been stopped for not entering the weigh stations. We were stopped for not using the truck route in a small town, (my bad) I missed the sign. The result was NO ticket as we are register Non commercial and she was a nice Cop MUST HAVE BEEN RELATED TO BIG5er. Safe Travels have fun Bob

    X4๐Ÿ˜ Depo Brand/deep space lighting from Dave. It was the best mod we did... worth every penny!
  11. 2X. We use 5th wheel pin that slides into Goose-neck shaft when using the HDT. The horses appreciate the air ride hitch. https://www.etrailer.com/Gooseneck-and-Fifth-Wheel-Adapters/etrailer/KPG5-R30IP.html
  12. These axles have both Caster and Camber adjustments
  13. I think it is an alignment issue. It has happened to us twice. Each time it was found to be out of alignment. The first time was the passenger side front axle, it looked similar to yours but was on the outside of the tire. The tire had 5600 miles on it and the trailer was only 5 months old. A new tire was needed and an aligned was done by MorRyde. The second time it occurred at the 21000 mile mark, it effected the drivers side front axle this time. We are lucky enough to be only one hour from MorRyde and think we are going to have an alignment every 10,000 miles along with the bearing maintenance. If there is a spring shop near you they might be able to align it for you. Good luck Bob
  14. Dave, Are there any Big Rig Truck Shows in your area where you could give your backside a test ride? The Midwest has a show in Louisville Ky (Mats) maybe there is a similar show on the West Coast. Jack Mayer or Dave from Deep Space Lighting might know of a similar show in your area. Bob
