Been away for work and out camping so just getting back on the forum. lots of catching up to do...
I could not get those Velcro straps to work. Even the dealer could not get them to connect. I see some T2499 owners have and maybe then can shed some light on what I and you where doing so wrong. I did replace the original straps with a new web strap and a quick connect buckle and so I can adjust the length. I do not have an exact pic of the strap but you can see a light blue one hiding in this pic by the large window. I slide the rocker against the rear wall and then strapped around the back of the chair just above the arms. The chair then did not hit the blinds.
The original straps one was by the side window which put the chair in the mini blind. We travel blinds down and locked. Another reason to change the strap for us. DW has to have the blinds down or else...
Maybe someone can use this pic and help- show us how it was to be done. Mine where like 4 to 6 inches too short to even make it around the back of the chair. And yes you do need it strapped. If you brake hard, the chair moves. How far is equal to how hard the braking action….
I also lifted mine 1 1/2” to be better eating at the table. Used 2, 2 x 4’s
And over time I upgraded the rocker. For me, it was a choir to hop hop in that rocker up to the table. It was a site…. With the new one, we have more room and it rolls. And had to find a new way to strap it down.
Here was the 1st attempt. Here you can see the blue strap I added for the original Steel Flex rocker that did work well on the original rocker. I tried to hog tie the new rocker and did not have much luck.
So I moved the location and now use this. It works.
On the Reese hitch you have. The HP head and DC.
Henry pointed to good info.
Grease the tow ball. Put a cover on it or baggie when exposed or else…. It has a magnetic attraction to my pant legs….
Do grease the trunnion sockets in the hitch head. If not heavy early wear will come.
The DC, if you have tongue weights in the 1,100 and down, run them dry. If they are 1,200# then use a light film of Vaseoline. The cams wear fast when new then slow down once a stable wear pattern sets in. Do mark the bars left and right and always use on the same side. If not that wear pattern will start over and over and over.
