I love the comments I receive on the Blog and I notice that most of my Blogger buddies also enjoy getting them. It's kind of a way that makes us realize that someone is actually reading this stuff. “Followers” is probably the next best way to know. Then, of course, there are all the analytics and web counters that let you know how many viewers you had on a given day.
Having said that, I must say that I visit a lot of Blogs that I don’t comment on. I try to but sometimes you just don’t have time. Especially when you're as slow as I am on one of these keyboards. Plus, some of the gyrations you have to go through in order to get your comment published is mindboggling and frustrates me real quick. I like Rick’s new idea of letting the comments go right on through without all the word games but I know he has many other spam preventers installed. Anyhow, I appreciate all your comments very much and I’m glad you stop by even if you don’t have time to comment.
Thank you all for your complements on the pickup cover. Malone, it is the same brand as yours.....a TRUXEDO, made right up in South Dakota. Sam, yep...it’s a SOFT cover so I can roll it up and secure it when I want to haul my motorcycle or something else. So far, we are real happy with it.
My next project was to install this Base Plate so we can tow the Silverado behind the Motorhome. Not much to it really. It's hard to believe Blue Ox charges $388.00 plus shipping for it. I got lucky and found this lightly used one from a fellow RV’er and saved a couple hundred bucks.
It went on real easy. It just inserts into the frame in the same location that the factory equipped Tow Hooks were in. Slick and simple.
There are two holes that have to be drilled in the frame. I don’t have the equipment with me to do such heavy drilling so I’ll have to take it somewhere to get that done. Next will be installing the "Light Kit". That won’t be as simple as it was on the Honda. On the Honda, I just put an extra bulb in the tail light housing on each side and wired direct. This one doesn’t have room for that. You have to splice into the truck wiring and add diodes on each wire to avoid electrical feedback. Soon as I get that and the brake installed, it will be ready to tow.
January is kind of a blah month around here, not a lot going on and my ambition level isn’t running very high. The biggest thing I don’t like about this time of the year is the Federal Income Tax for last year is soon due. Now I don’t mind paying taxes (ya, Right!) and we pay quarterly in advance. But what they put you through and all the forms etc. drives us nuts!!
It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you’ll come back.
