Played withe thought of coming to Rockport... but it would snow on ya'll....a few years ago, we went to Austin in Feb. and the snow followed us down there... we saw kids out with snow boards.... went on down to galveston, and it was still miserably cold and windy, had to wear the winter parka the whole time outside there....
November isn't too bad here usually, we don't get a first frost until around Halloweenish... If I were to go south, I'd do it in January or February.

Herbie sweetie, you know that my most affection feelings are reserved just for you. Remember, it all started on our first date, you fiend you.

Oh Waynie you know just how to sweep a mutant off his feet! (Blushing)

Steve, is it possible to loosen the switch from the bracket and slide it back, or slide the bracket itself back an inch?

Or like Wayne said, swing it around!

Looking at Les's kitchen remodel I thought he was teaching his wife a lesson. Sure you can have new appliances, and I got rid of those counter tops you hated too!

I called Roadmaster today. They say to take the little "flag" off of it that screams "Take Me". The breakaway switch box is held in place by one screw. They say it may wallow out the hole over time but you can twist it back and forth.
They also say it should be out in front so there is no interference and you can be sure it is properly connected. I pretty much agree.

I solved my biggest problem by taking the "flag" off and my secondary problem by ordering two more of the "pins" as backups. Can keep one in the car and one in the tool box.

The ring really doesn't need this plastic tag flapping from it...

I've had a similar type pin on my TTs in the past and never had a reason to replace the little Gizmo. No dollar value so not something likely to disappear.

The FLAGG took the FLAG off.... Somehow that sounds illegal......

I called my friend Bernie Maydoff and ask him what to do if someone took my breakaway pin. Answer, take one from your neighbor, oh don't worry, they then can take one from someone else. Oh don't worry about the last person because there is always more campers coming in! As a matter of fact you could easly take two, that would be planning for your future! O Bernie really has things figured out, and he's a lot easier to find now a days.

So Steve no worry!
