New Eagle Ht coming Thurs

Hey just want to chime in on the Fifth Wheel board, traded a 2015 TT 28BHBE for a new 2015 Eagle Ht 285RSTS, Mama and I just decided to go a total new route, no bunks more comfy for just the two of us, looking so forward to picking it up Thursday, I love all the info the forums offer, I read a lot of great tips and things to look for, will continue to do so with the new unit as well.
I will try to post some pics if I can figure it out, never got around to it with the TT.
Cheers for now
Pete

Congrats, best advise I recieved when buying a trailer was to plan to feed 10 and sleep 2. Sounds like you're headed down the same path

I was thinking drinks for 6, dinner for 4, and sleeps 2, and hopefully the guests are bringing the drinks and dinner lol.

Just curious anyone using the nylon lube rings , that push onto the pin, if so do you still need to grease everything as well, just less?

I bought two, used one only once before installing the "Sidewinder", which says in the instructions, "Do not use lube rings with the Sidewinder." Oh well.
