  1. OK, manufacturer told me they DON'T have a locking plate for the larger Predator generators at this time. Maybe in the future.
  2. Thanks. I'll let everyone know when I get a response.
  3. Curious; do you happen to know if they are working on a device for the Predator 3500? I did send them a note this morning but was hoping you might have some first-hand knowledge. Thanks Paul (2-Hobos).
  4. I mess around with a banjo too. Probably need to pick it up and get back into it. Over time, I've discovered that I really suck at it, but the more I practice, I've discovered that I simply "suck" a little faster. Would be nice to hand my banjo to someone else who can make some nice sounds come out of it.
  5. How do I determine which axles I have on my 2018/2019 LE II trailer? (Hull 414 was the very last LE II produced in 2018 so it may have some 2019 components). Thanks
  6. Not that it helps much, but I have been told the HeadlightRevolution LED headlight assemblies are much better than the Ford LED lights. So for less $, the HR lights are better than the factory upgraded lights. You still have to deal with the labor part of the equation though. The installation is not rocket science, just a few hours of disassembly and reassembly. There are very goo video on how to do this. One of the best is on the HR website.
  7. Yeah, I agree. Just to change the headlight bulbs, you have to remove the grill, upper shroud and other stuff. And that is for a single bulb! I figure unless I want to live with the pathetic lights that are the truck, I might as well bite-the-bullet and replace the entire assembly since I'm already do labor. The LED headlights are about an $1100 option when you purchase the trucks new which I thought was outrageous. Not such a bad deal after looking what it takes to do an upgrade later.
  8. I agree with the Headlight Revolution suggestion. I have done considerable research relative to upgrading (legally) the headlights on my 2018 F250 and found the HR replacement assemblies to be the best deal out there. It'll cost about $1K to replace both headlights when I do it, but it's one-and-done! It's a PITA to replace bulbs in these trucks so you might as well replace the whole assembly vice going to bulb replacement only to find out at annual inspection time, they're illegal.
  9. I have the 6000 lb model. Can't speak to the smaller model. Sorry
  10. We carry two of these: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pwb-620471?seid=srese1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4LnMqZqN_AIVGPjICh0OsQgDEAQYAiABEgIzYfD_BwE Being a jack stand, it's much more stable than a plain jack. I can easily lift one side to the trailer with these to do any repair or maintenance work necessary; and when camped, I use them on the front corners of the frame to mitigate the wobble when walking around inside the trailer using just slight pressure against the frame. I wouldn't leave home without them. At the rally last year, they were used by another owner while doing a spring repair.
  11. I agree with topgun2; it's so easy to winterize, why go through the steps suggested above but still worry that you didn't do it right? Just spend the 45 minutes and a couple gals of anti-freeze and sleep comfortably not worrying. I appreciate that the odds are you'll be fine, but why take a chance?
  12. I carry two hydraulic jack stands with me. They serve two purposes; 1) to jack the trailer for wheel service and : 2) to place under the front corners of my trailer when camping to eliminate wobble or rocking when walking inside the trailer. Have found them to be extremely useful. Wouldn't leave home without them. Here's a link: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pwb-620471?seid=srese1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIitDm9vrh-gIVwuDICh0wdAmXEAQYAiABEgI0F_D_BwE
  13. My guess is that if Oliver offers it as an option, the folks at Tochta already have the patterns for the Oliver trailers. I'd check with them.
