MAKE DANG SURE!!!

Make sure that YOU look at your 5th wheel to make sure its locked in when you hook up, and dont take anybodys word for it. I asked my father in law if it locked when I backed under and he said "yeah, it locked". He lifted the jacks, I pulled ahead and BAM!! My heart sank. I got lucky tho. My pace edwards rails took one hell of a beating, and spared my body from any seriously noticable damage. I will look for myself from now on. Oh, when it dropped he said "It must not have locked." Well, I kept my cool and all is good.

Wow man, that sucks I've almost done that before!

I always lift the jacks a bit and pull forward to make sure its locked in addition to looking

Glad it didn't do too much damage!

No sir, thank goodness. I guess the slide rails for the cover distributed the weight out enuff to keep it from crimping the bed.
