A friend was towing his Durango with his one year old 35' Class C when he noticed the toad appered in the right mirror. He managed to pull to the right side of the road without hittig anything. He discovered that two of the four hitch mounting bolts fell out. I guess they were not properly torqued at the factory. Luckily the other two kept the toad attached to the MH. I checked my hitch and all of the SIX bolts are tight. Not something your normally check.

The thought of having something go wrong back there kinda freaks me --- I applied LoctiteŽ (thread locker) to all nuts/bolts.
