I wonder if it can be used with the removable jack system which allows your tailgate to open Jack-E-Up

Hi: All... My favorite accessory is being retired!!! Doesn't suit everyone... but being able to enjoy travel anytime is a bonus. I tend to take to much stuff... so may pare down on the accessories to save wait (sic) Alf

Oddly enough ... I really enjoy having a dense foam kneeling mat made for gardening. It's about 8" x 18" and I use it when unhooking the chains, opening/closing the drain valves, and rummaging around under the bed using the outside hatch. Keeps my aging knees very happy.

Just kidding.

If heavy traffic, I will try to change lanes. If I can't do that, I gradually slow down so that the aggressive driver (AH) will pass me. On several occasions, the rear view camera has allowed me to see stuff I couldn't see in the side mirrors.

Carl, do you mind sharing what the cost of this unit was, and is there a monthly or yearly fee? I went to their website and it looks great, but they don't detail cost or fees.

Cost is around $400 with first year monitoring included. I believe it is approximately $75 per year after that. I consider it well worth it since it would likely take well over a year to replace a stolen Escape. At my age, I can't afford to lose that much time. It is sensitive enough that if the trailer rocks from someone moving inside, it will email me an alert. And small enough that it is easily hidden where it would take a forensic expert a long time to find it.
PM me with a phone number if you wish to discuss the ALR-9.

Hi: cpaharley2008... Not a chance
Here's a pic I took of lunch out in Lakeland Fla. one day. The plate is called "Train wreck". Grilled pork slices under a mess of cheese grits, beans and sauce. Alf
