This is where the shop put it - below the lice see plate. It's not that visible when the base plate is in place - but it will stand out when the plate is removed. Any thoughts... ?
Steve, if I understand your concern correctly, you should be OK. When I was in Iola, KS having my towbar reworked, they told me the breakaway cable can and should have plenty of slack. It should only activate when the car and the towbar get separated during towing. An extra foot of cable is ok as long as it doesn't catch or drag on anything.

Don and Sandee, I hope Mom's time left is just right. Make sure you say everything you want to say very soon.

My stepmom was only with us for about 4 hours after she went on hospice care. I was expecting days at least. The palliative care that hospice provides removed her pain and she went to sleep. If only I had known.

This really changes our plans but we feel fortunate that we were in the local area instead of days away. Her mom is the greatest and the whole family is special to me. I could not have married into a better family.

Our biggest concern is that her dad stays strong. He is in pretty good health and we hope he takes care of himself.

So...

Our eyes are still on the rainbow but it is a tad further away than we wish. But...we persevere.
Don and Sandee, we're sorry to hear about your Mother. You are all in our thoughts and healing Ohmmmss are directed your way. Remember family comes first. The rest of us await your return to the rainbow when it is apropos you to do so.

Thanks for the words I wish I could have crafted, Barb.

Don and Sandee, my Mom left us after 7 weeks when the experts said "no more than two weeks". And it was hospice care and constant presense of family that made her transition so very pleasant.
Best wishes for all of you.

Barb - Actually what I'm concerned about is a nimrod coming along while we are in a restaurant - sleeping - anywhere other than watching the car - and pulling the thing out and walking away with it. We all know to check the pins and connections when hooked up to tow. But this is different - the disconnect is right there for someone to pull even when the brackets are completely removed. I would prefer it to be out of passerby view.
