New Pullrite Hitch and 5th Airborne Air Pinbox

We finally replaced our gooseneck hitch setup with a new hitch from Camping World. We had to go to a medium duty hitch to ensure it was low enough for our 5er to pull level or nearest to it. The pinbox had to be mounted in its uppermost position for even this to happen. Overall the installation went good except for us dragging our electrical pigtail cord on our maiden voyage with the new hitch. It was easy to repair, but it reminded us that safety inspections and numerous stops enroute are necessary when changing locations.

The pinbox is a 5th Airborne with air suspension, it totally takes out the chucking from 5th-wheel towing to the point you forget the trailer is behind you sometimes!

The hitch is a Pullrite Low Pro 25.5K Super 5th at 10.5" high so that it tows level. This is an easy hitch to operate once I became familiar with it. It is a whole different operation from hitch to a gooseneck ball!

Fortunately we still had trailer brakes while our cord was being damaged, don't ask me how?!!!

The cord is in the process of being repaired.

Here is the repaired cord complete with new bungy (and added plastic ties) to suspend the repaired cord so that it does not drag on the ground anymore. Let's hope that is the last dumba** thing I do for a while!!!
