If you've ever wanted a powerful, yet VERY portable work light, look no further.  The Schumacher SL175RU is the perfect match between a BRIGHT LED light and the convenience of a cordless device.

So what is a CH751 lock / Key?

It's a key that's perfect for RV dealers..... as they only need to carry one key to access 100's of RV's on their lot...great for them...... but not great for owners.

We can connect to our 5th wheel hitch and the King Ping with ease.  


However, attaching that DARN emergency brake cable from the King Pin to our truck/hitch...NOT FUN.   It's the one step that I don't look forward to.  You have be 7 feet tall to reach over the wheel we...
