    After scrounging CL & FB marketplace for the last couple weeks, I finally found a Trailer Saver TS3 for my HDT truck. I really wanted a TSLB2H model which is easier to just bolt down to a plate and in fact missed a screaming deal on one in TX, but this TS3 showed up 2hrs away and I think the main difference is it has tabs welded on to fit in standard rails in a P/U truck. I can probably just have those cut off and a plate welded on and it will be about the same thing.

    Now to get it mounted and finally get my toy hauler hooked up for the first time to the truck.

    Well, that's certainly one way to keep the mileage down on your truck.

    When I was fairly young and green, I got hired by Lockheed and moved from the east coast to the west. Was planning to drive my Jeep and tow a little trailer till finding the company was paying for my move, so looked into renting a Haul truck to tow the Jeep. The had a row of trucks and when we looked at the small one the guy gave me a price. Thinking the next size up might be a bit more stable, I asked about the price and the guy said for a long distance one-way, it was the same.

    I rented their big box truck, put the Jeep in it, and drove off happy as a clam.

    Back to the TPMS discussion for a minute. Had to take my new F-150 in for a recall on the drivers seat. They gave me an F-150 for a loaner but was a different trim level. I was just scrolling through the menus when the tire pressure screen came up. Drivers front was at 29psi while all three other tires were at 39psi! That's 10psi and I would have thought it should have been displaying a warning.

    When I picked my truck up I mentioned it to the service advisor and he said yes they should pop up a warning at 4-5 psi, BUT he said if you dismiss the warning, it won't pop up again, so obviously a previous driver had just dismissed the warning.

    Seemed like pretty lousy programming to me. Unless I went looking for the tire pressure screen, I would have never known I had a low tire. It should be treated like the low fuel warning, which you can dismiss the large popup but it still leaves an orange warning symbol easily noticed on the dash display.

    We are in Camp Wood in the Texas hill contry in our RT SSAgile. We towed the jeep down, an took one of the three sisters in it today. It's small but pulled the jeep just fine. No complaints except for the expensive Mercedes maintenance.

    That's sweet, I picked up an older one in Amarillo on the way home a couple years ago, had been sort of looking for one a few years.
