Sorry to hijack your 338RETS thread, but I just had to mention this to Rockdaddy ... I havent done it yet, but I always wanted to put a front receiver on my TV, that way I could put my receiver mounted bike rack in the front when pulling my trailer. I also figured when things get real dicey backing one of my trailers I could possibly push into a spot rather than back into it ... to me the turns, although I'm getting better at it, seem much more intuitive pushing as opposed to backing.
Now back to the purpose of this thread ... I just got the 338 in January, but do not yet have a TV, and honestly I've been concerned about pulling this behemoth. I've enjoyed reading this thread, it's actually starting to give me the feeling that I can pull this thing (of course after I get a 3/4 ton truck, I don't think my V6 Nissan Frontier will even survive looking at this!!).
