The Equalizer hitch is the gold standard of Weight Distribution Hitches as they are 4 point control. Weight Distribution and Sway Control all in one unit.

When we did popcorn on our porch for Halloween last year, everyone loved it. We got lots of Thank You's from parents that is wasn't candy. And I only remember a handful of of kids that said was there also candy. Lots of kids came back for seconds - the smell was all over the development.

Even with the cost of the handout boxes, it wasn't much more that candy.

We will bring up the popcorn machine and give out fresh popcorn instead of candy.

$150 is about right if done by a dealer, if you doing it yourself and changing the races and the bearings, then $50 is about right also.

Give the guys at ETRAILER.COM a call. Have your VIN number and they should be able to give you all the information you need.

Breakway devices are direct wired to the battery so they will have their own fuse block inline. The box will usually only have one wire as the attachment to the frame connects the ground. Follow the wire out of the breakway to the battery and check to see if there is an inline fuse.
 
If you are assuming you brakes work (try running a temp wire from the battery and touch the blue battery wire and see if they engage to rule that out first.
 
At the end of the day, Breakaway kits are only $20

Pete and Phil are in Site 512.
 
We **probably** won't have any site decorations as we have to replace a lot of our stuff and don't know if we will have much of it by then, but if we don't we will have some fun costumes instead.

I think CampingPhil and ChefPete don't need a brake control in their truck.  There's got to be settings for it, right?

All trailers that have brakes have to be plugged into a Brake Controller, it is part of the pin out of the 7-way connector.
 
In our Truck, the Brake Controller is built into the truck and part of the console panel, so yes there is a brake controller and there is a manual override lever. I can go through the onscreen controls and increase or decrease the gain. The onboard goes from 6V-10V. (My prodigy p3 went from 6V-12V).

In our older Dodge Dakota, we have a Prodigy P3 and really like it. It saved our butts more times than I want to remember (***holes that decide to cut you off).

I might be the minority here...but I like using tapatalk instead of the web browser.  I find keeping up with multiple forums easier through tapatalk.

I don't visit PUP that much anymore since they discontinued tapatalk support.

On the system side, Tapatalk is a constant drain and it ignores security, so we have do jump through hoops to keep it in sync. Tapatalk was popuplar before websites and forums were responsive, now that most forums auto adjust for phones, it gets hard to justify it. The other issue has to do with the fact that Tapatalk shows their own ads - they don't allow us to limit the type of ads, and we get no revenue at all from it. They keep it all. Its not like the system here makes much, but there is a monthly bandwidth charge that is getting higher and higher.

With all the new emerging technologies like Cell Phones and Tablets, we are in the process of redesigning the website and forums here.
 
The highest priority is to make sure the new website is fully responsive so that it can be viewed and used on a desktop, tablet and cell phone. (no tapatalk needed).

What new features and sections would you like to see?

Phil
