    ...and I can't get the lock off the hitch. The key turns like normal, but it won't slide down off the pegs. Looks like I'm going to have to get a locksmith out there to get it off. :mad2:

    This is the lock that's on there.

    I oiled it up early this year so that I wouldn't have these problems. Almost feels like mechanism inside is broken and not unlocking.

    Works good at sharpening mower blades while they are still on the mower too! Just make sure its not running first.

    Well, I called a locksmith and he said he'd probably end up cutting it off with a Roto-Zip. Well heck, I got one of those, just need to get the blade attachment. So off I went to get that. Come out to the parking lot and see anti-freeze by my truck. Hmmmmmm.

    Take the truck up to my mechanic and they look at it and find out I need a new radiator. The tank inside is cracked. I've had the radiator replaced once and I called the shop that replaced it along with my transmission for the second time, that's another story, and it only had a 1 year warranty and that was a few years ago.:mad2:

    I guess it was a blessing that the lock didn't work last night. :shrug:
