lockmup68 Posted January 30, 2017 Report Share Posted January 30, 2017 Just got back from a 22 hour drive in 72 hours, so wiped out. Picked up the Teton in Raleigh and towed back to TN through all the ice/sleet/snow through the mountains. Was fun! Normal 9 hour drive took 13 hours. Then I got stuck in the gravel parking lot of the storage facility. Thought I would pull straight through over the parking spot bumper and I was trying to go to slow and forgot to lock in the power divider in a pile of new loose gravel. Wife in the LGT pulled it back enough to get out of the ruts. Filling in the holes with hands and feet was fun at 11 pm in the cold. When I took the trailer to my painter buddy, I shoehorned it back into a driveway and was worried about getting it out without tearing up the sides of the trailer with the trees, and I had parked it 1 foot from the house. I was worried about trying to get the jaws to latch on the hitch without pushing the trailer back into the house. With just me and my daughter, I actually backed in and latched up in one shot without even moving the trailer and pulled out in one shot, and no trees were harmed in the process. Then a relatively slow drive back, so all good. A few observations: 1. need to either relocate the hitch camera closer to the hitch, or add in another camera. The current one is about 6-7 feet in front of the hitch (the ramp storage and genset long ways separates it from the hitch. My other camera is a license plate bracket camera and only helps me to see the cord hanging down from the pin box. Also need a camera on the rear of the trailer and/or other side of the trailer. Current set up, camera is at the top of the rise in the middle: 2. The hitch height/pin box drop still needs addressing sooner rather than later. The front of the trailer sits way too low. I will also raise the suspension to the first level of 2 inches higher. When I change out the tires/wheels, I will raise the trailer and then fix the pin box/hitch height before the first major trip. Pic from truck stop on way home yesterday. 3. The phantom left turn signal/brake activating is still there. I paid attention to the controller the entire trip and most of the time, when left signal is on, it shows a 0.05-0.06 brake signal most of the time. Some of the time (maybe 30% of the time), it goes up to the full, set brake signal amount, in this case, it was 6.0. 4. Headlights are still crappy, especially in the rain/sleet/snow with no moon. Maybe add fog lights/driving lights. 5. windshield leaks a bit, need to get it resealed. 6. Freedomline error code "CL" = clutch overload, put in N and let it cool down. Mo money, mo money....... Thanks and have a great day, Shannon Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
