Then making up the wiring harness and plugging in the lights and no sparks or blown fuses! And the first short ride towing it without even sensing it was back there, that was really great.
I still have to adjust the shocks to their heaviest setting but that won’t take long. The idea is to compensate for the added weight of the trailer on the rear end, otherwise the front end would be a bit light resulting in funny handling.
After putting the final touches on the wiring harness I remembered I had to treat all of Red Dog’s switches and electrical connectors with dielectric grease so I’ve started on that. It’s no small project as there are lots of components and most are buried under the plastic body parts.
Now I’m truly looking forward to the first road trip, probably to Portland to have Red Dog’s saddle reshaped. The weather starting Tuesday of next week is looking pretty fair for this time of year so if it holds that may be a good time to go.
