Hooking Up The Toad For The First Time In Five Years

Our Malibu hasn't been towed in five years. Today was such a nice day, Joe decided he'd hook it up. But first he had to check all the pins, the welds, the connections, he had to use a little WD-40 on  the telescoping bars



Then air brake cylinder was attached to the brake pedal, the correct fuses removed, and then we did a light check.



Brake lights worked, left signal...............well, the right turn light on the car worked. The the right turn signal...........yep, the left turn signal on the car worked. So we called the service department at B.Young RV where we bought our RV and they made an appointment for Tuesday as soon as Joe gets off work. Some one evidently crossed wired the signal lights.  Good thing we do those light checks huh. 



Our mobile home park is U shaped. Joe took Freeda around the park to get the feeling of it towing the Malibu and every thing seemed just fine.


 

Just as with every thing else in Joe's life, they bays are all neat and organized. What is he doing at the moment on this nice sun shinny evening? He's outside cleaning the Malibu and Freeda.
