I found thin wall impact sockets on line. Hmmm. Ok. If I get these off I will definitely be replacing them with solid nuts. Of some sort.

The best option is an adjustable 2.5" hitch like a 180 and be done. 3 different ball sizes and adjusts for any trailer I have ever had. Sure, it was expensive but it is the last one I will need. ...

Huh, I never gave thought to the temperatures. It has not been uncommon for me to see 100įf on the display lately. I'm guessing I just did not pay as much attention to it before I made the haul up...
