THANKS Boreggo Dave!
I had the opportunity to meet Dave today. Marilyn and I are staying fairly close to where Dave lives and after a couple a PM s he decided to stop by as he was to be in El Centro anyway.
We had a great visit and got to know each other a bit, AND he brought his angle grinder with him at my request.
DON'T FORGET YOUR KEYS!!!
We stayed in motels all the way down and it wasn't till I was setting up here that I realized I'd forgot the key for the coupler lock.
I got the coupler off the trailer by unbolting it from the tongue and have been driving around with the coupler still on the ball for 2 weeks or more!
Anyway the angle grinder made quick work of the lock. THANKS DAVE!
Think I'll take Dave's advice and hide the keys for trailer locks on the trailer!!!
