Don't you hate equipment not set up by the people who actually use it?!

On the right rear of the truck. Ours are located in the back between the bed and the pintle hook and trailer draw bar, making hard to connect/disconnect the "quick connects" There's, I think about eight hoses. One to lower the blade, one to raise it, one to turn the trailer, one to return it, one for the sander, one for the brine system, a return line, maybe seven. Air hoses for the brakes, two plugs, all crammed in a three square foot area. Plus two heavy duty safety chains. And if the hydraulic hoses are pressurized?

ygmir, sending coffee with everything you like, extra cognac, on coffeebot, after it stops at the NEB.
Oh, and I have indeed thought of making a magic carpet MV. But it would be hard to beat the one that already shows up every year. (Of course, it is not a contest. I'd be happy with a lesser one.)

Did she know what you were referring to?
