I don't know if this should be a locked thread or not. Seems to me like suggestions could be thanked, and added to the top post, if that works good for everyone.

HP! FANTASTIC WORK... (and quick too)

POINT: The "NANKANG TIRE CONTROVERSY" is a very important issue, and needs to be on the list. I would put it right at the top, if you can.

Thanks, Wolf! I'll have a look at the Nankang thread. I thought we could keep this thread open to recieve suggestions and generate a little discussion. Once the suggestions are added to post #2, any new posts will get removed to keep the thread short. Sound okay to everyone?

Excellent! Deal with what is presented, dispose of what has been taken care of (with a nice THANK YOU!)

I looks to me like it works....

okay - I'll put the NANKANG thing in a more generic and specific way. Look for it.

I tried very hard to cover all of the bases on the generator/alarm issue. It's a safety issue IN FACT and needs to be known about.

I'd highlight THAT one in RED if it were me.

If your towing a boat trailer that has hydraulic brakes and has the 5 way flat plug you can tow this w/ your truck if u have a 4 way flat except.....when u want to back up get out of the truck walk to the back and pull the plugs apart flip the trailer plug over and plug it back in then turn your headlights on.
Flipping the plug over puts the brake wire that keeps the brakes from locking up plugged into your taillights and by turning your lights on your putting power to it just remeber when u start to go forward again to flip it back over.

I'm attempting to think insideoutly...

The lights then control the brakes if you mean what I think you do....
(Should have been in a seperate thread here though)
