SteveMM, great write up and gad you had a great time!

Quick tip, the back-up camera doesn't show black color too well. So, for ease when backing up to connect the hitch to the trailer, I put a piece of florescent duct tape on the tip of the trailer coupler which is much more visible through the camera and allows me to line up the ball to the coupler usually on the first try.

On those bunk seals, I suggest wiping them down with baby powder. Works like a charm on my X23B hybrid, and I'm over 6' tall!! Now they drop down EEE-ZZZ.......

That's a really great tip. I didn't have much trouble lining it up, but that tape should make it really easy.
