Arrived early for my fifth wheel hitch installation in Colton, California. Traffic wasn’t to bad, but there was a lot of construction along the 91/215 freeway. I wasn’t here more than 15 minutes and I had spent another $200 on a 7 way trailer electrical plug for the bed of the truck. This was decided on because allowing the fifth wheel electrical cables to dangle over the bed of the workhorse (truck) to be plugged in on the bumper may cause some problems down the road. Who knew that was a good option? I am learning all the time… and again forgot to take pictures of the process. Well they tell me I will be here about five hours for the installation. I will try to snap at least one photo. This is a huge facility, it’s my first time here. I spoke to Mike, the service technician who checked my truck in for the process about adding a solar package to my fifth wheel before I take delivery in two weeks. For a 165 watt panel and all the “stuff” that goes with it (including inverter), it’s around $3500. Does anyone know if that’s a good deal?
Update: I found my Workhorse getting it’s saddle installed on one of my walks around the RV Dealers lot. I also thought I found the Coach hiding on the back lot, but it was a copy. It was still nice to take a look, I haven’t seen one up close since late October. At the end of the day the saddle (fifth wheel hitch) was installed and we were on our way to being happy campers soon. Only two more weeks before I accept delivery of my Coach in Arizona 🙂
