RE: Securing cable outside trailer

I ran my wire through a length of PVC pipe which was white and matched the trailer color. I used existing screws to attach nylon straps to secure the pipe.

RE: RV Crushes Truck

As far as the head separating from the base, B&W themselves said that this was as designed. It is to prevent the FW from rolling the truck, too. Better to sacrifice the trailer than endanger the people in the truck. Lyle Interesting Lyle, do you have a link to where B&W said that? I’ve searched the inter webs and can’t find that in their documentation. I could have easily overlooked it though. Thanks! Jeremiah"Better to sacrifice the trailer than endanger the people in the truck." Assuming this statement is true, and I don't think it is, what happens when the trailer skids into oncoming traffic, there is a six car pileup, and 5 people are killed? Do you really think B&W would leave themselves open to the consequences (lawsuits) of something like this happening?

RE: ATT Mobley IP address and VPN ??

Depending on the device you're using, there may be add-ons or apps that you can use to "fake" your location. I use "Location Guard" with Chrome and Firefox on my laptop, and "Fake GPS" on my Android phone when I want a different location from where the device thinks I am.Location Guard won't work if the website uses your IP address to determine your location. My Mobely IP address is in Dallas, TX and that's where I usually wind up, when for example, I'm shopping online.

RE: Very low cost backup-camera using WiFi cameras?

I haven't constructed one yet, but my plan is to use an inexpensive camera from a racing drone (~$15 from china)hooked up to a drone battery. The signal will go to a receiver I already have, which I will mount in the truck. This is only for backing up and wont be in place while traveling. If you are electronically inclined, cobbling up something could be fairly inexpensive. camera that I have (there are MANY others): Caddx.us Bettle V1 L FPV Camera for RC Hobby DIY FPV Racing Drone Quadcopter (those are search terms on the bay- idk, but I bet I'm not allowed to post the direct link. I have no interest in these financially).See Bumpyroad's and DFord's comments above. You won't be happy if the camera doesn't have a "mirror image" feature.

RE: Should I put my Mobley SIM in another hotspot when parked?

Even if your SIM is locked just unlock it. See this post for step by step instructions. DaveDoes this process still work? Has anyone done it recently?

RE: Hitch choice

I have the B&W Patriot Slider and been very happy with it, almost as smooth as silk except for the bad concrete highways. Solid hitch Dan But aint it kinna heavy? Weight shouldn't be a problem. If it is, some on this forum have suggested that when installing or removing the hitch, disconnect the head from the base, or alternatively, have some friends come over to help lift it, followed by some beer and male bonding. Other solutions are to get a winch from HF and attach it to a rafter in the garage and one fellow stated that he uses a forklift to remove his.

RE: What do I need

HERE is a very recent and interesting thread which should answer many of your questions.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

We have a 24' Mobile Scout (Sunnybrook) with a dry weight of 5429 lbs. We tow with a rail mount Andersen hitch. We are both in our late 70s with our health not so good, so the light weight, 43 lbs, was the reason we chose the Andersen. We've been very happy with it.

RE: Andersen Hitch questions

We have an 8' bed. We replaced our conventional rail-mount hitch with an Anderson rail-mount because of the weight difference. Other than setting the ball height on the hitch, no other changes were needed. Bed rail clearance is no problem. I've never had to make a 90 degree turn so I can't comment on that.
