Default Thieves suck

Short story helped a buddy move his trailer , and I picked up a HF 2000 watt predator gen on sale stopped off at store to pick up some items so I could make dinner. Date night and all come out my WDH. Gone and tail gate open Wanted to throw up .. I know locking pin never locked my tail gate ever

Leaving for CO In 10 days the gen was a nice addition for camp.needed it Now I have to buy a new hitch 350 ish as I still have the load bars so off to CO without the gen

I hope he gets testicular cancer !!

Weight distribution hitch WDH harbor freight HF Colorado CO

I’m guessing HF is harbor freight, I’m lost on the rest.

So you borrowed a trailer, went to harbor freight to get a generator, then went to get groceries and a thief came along and stole your friends trailer with your generator you just bought?

Not trying to be a smart *** but is that what happened?

I think he said his hitch and the generator were stolen. I assume he had the hitch on the truck so he could help his buddy.

At least that's what my decoder ring is telling me.

Yes my buddy’s truck was in the shop the only hitch I have with the 2 5/16 ball is my RV weight hitch His trailer needed to have a safety inspection so I took it to the shop for that took it back to his house. Not a big deal just helping a friend out. Then to harbor freight bought a new gen set out it in the bed of truck. I have a roltrax aluminum bed cover as well


Just never thought it would happen to me I guess tail gate lock does not work trust me pin lock for hitch and I will repair tail gate. The roltrax can also be locked.

Sorry for your loss. Nowadays, if I'm carrying anything of value, especially in the bed of the truck, if I don't have someone with me, who can stay with the truck, I won't stop or park it anywhere, that's out of my sight, for even a couple of minutes.

Not sure why some have a comprehension deficit , but oh well

the New hitch is ordered will be Here Fri.. OHHH wait FRIDAY to keep confusion to a minimum.

LEO ( Law Enforcement Officer ) said it becoming more and more common , they target larger parking lots and truck's are the first choice .


"BertramBass I hope LEO get the AH that stole his used GEN and WDH he got at HF so he can still have a good trip to CO. "

You just put a few into a tail spin .. HA HA that is great . You seem to have the same key board as I do .
