I can't find anything about any Ky law regarding removing their removal when not in use, but it might save some skin from my chins if I did.  

If you are hitting your chins on a trailer hitch you have more problems that finding out what the law is.

I normally remove mine, but I have an $80 tri-ball that is adjustable vertically that I don't want to disappear.  Funny thing is that my 6" drop hitch that I have for moving farm equipment is in the receiver right now as my dad has been using the truck to move equipment as his F150 doesn't have a hitch on it.  Usually have a plastic Kohler Engines hitch cover in when not towing.

I guess everyone around here leaves them in. The one on the back of the pickup is loose enough that it's kind of a sloppy fit and never gets stuck. Had one like Daniels and I hated the thing. Was nice and quiet and the only way you could get it out was with a 5 lb. hammer.

People are bad about stealing them around here so we keep ours in the truck unless we are using it.

 

Just let it rust in place like Daniel's  :thumbs:  :D

Mine used to be loose enough I could feel/hear the play when towing, especially with an empty trailer.   When that sound went away, that's what alerted me it was bound up.   

  Left shoulder & arm is hurting a lot again this morning, but it may not have anything to do with over working it.  The shoulder blade muscle has been numb since surgery, and I noticed I can feel more sensation from touch today, so it may just be from feeling returning from the damaged nerve.  Likely just take time & some hurt before it gets better.

Sealing some exposed wood on the house today.  After a while drying, I'll put exterior paint over that.  Needed to have been done a long time ago, but never had or took the time to do it.

Sure would be nice if this is the case.

Just read HERE in the northeast they are dumping skim milk into manure pits as it's not worth the cost to attempt other uses for it.  What they call the southeast region as far as milk marketing is the highest consumer of fluid (drinking) milk and it won't surprise me if even the SE region ends up dumping milk also.  I feel for the guys trying to stay in business...it's gonna be awfully tough to survive this next year or more of predicted low low prices.

  I was just barely in the SE region.

I believe that's the way it is in Ontario also.

Ours have to come out as well.
Sad thing when people are underfed in our countries and it's uneconomical to process food for them. Something definitely wrong with this picture, and it's hard to even begin to figure out where to start with fixing it.

Got the new AC hose via UPS this morning.  Vacuumed the system, then let it suck in required oil, then gassed (134A) her up.  A few little things to do & she's ready for making hay if they ever get all the parts in for the discbine.  One part left to come in yet, & hoping it comes in the morning.  Gonna be a busy & hot day.  Leaving off the tractor's heavy hood halves, as I don't need to risk the weight & awkward size ripping muscles in my neck.
