I had my Blue Ox tow hitch and base plate installed today without incident. I did bring the rig up to the shop so they could check everything and there were no problems.
There was an 8" drop from the RV to the base plate so that cost me a bit. I also added locking hitch pins (2 half inch and two 5/8 in a kit, all keyed the same), for an additional sum. All together with tax it was about $2400, roughly what I expected.
Towing it 20 miles home the Brake Buddy never lit up, set at level 4. I'll play with the settings a bit, but really want them to kick in only with a fairly strong stop (but sooner than a panic stop).
Now to find some good trips to test it all out...
Thanks for all the advice.
