Man, my head hurt yesterday. Not a migraine, but a sharp pain up the right side of my head that was debilitating of itself. Kinda sorta went away around 0100 enough for me to get to sleep (as long as I didnâ€™t lay on my right side), but didnâ€™t completely disappear until 1300 or so today. Has made my day rather laid back to say the least.
Anywho, SWMBO and I contracted to buy the trailer yesterday and will take delivery Saturday. Theyâ€™re going to give us a 2-3 hour orientation/class before we just hook up and head out. Iâ€™ve spent most of today researching my truck and itâ€™s capabilities. Itâ€™ll tow up to 11k pounds, so thatâ€™s no problem Where weâ€™re running into â€œdifficultiesâ€ is: I have trailer brakes, but no controller. So I need to get the controller installed . Waiting on word now on whether my truck is pre-wired or not. If not, thatâ€™ll be about $100 more to install. But, either way, I need to get the controller installed before hooking up the new trailer.
But, since my truck is already installed with something called Trailer Sway Control, done through the brakes, do I really needed to buy the sway control thingie for the hitch? Probably, but itâ€™s got me wondering.
And, the credit company wonâ€™t finance for 10 years unless the total amount is over $20k; so we need to â€œspendâ€ about $300 more to get the lower payment. NO PROB! Letâ€™s start with that 2kw generator ($1400 on sale so this ainâ€™t happening!), hoses, special easily dissolved toilet paper, dishes, bedding, and go from there!
Already have some ideas about where/how to mount my radio and run the power and antenna wires. What type of antenna(â€˜s) to go with and how to mount it. (Iâ€™m kind of thinking Hamsticks.) Where to set up my laptop.
So, once the headache went away, the rest of my day was fairly normal. Spent a lot of time online looking stuff up. Got my usual chores done. Still have lots to do tomorrow. Did get to pick SWMBO up though, so that was good. I like being with her.
