While waiting for assistance, I took a look at the new RCV boots, which, based on previous RCV boot experience, I thought for sure would have been ripped due to driving with the front end unloaded and the axles at such a steep angle...

...but I was extremely happy to see they both survived! This is big news for RCV customers! They may have finally fixed their freak'n boot issues as I now have close to 1,000 miles on them when previous RCV boots in my experience couldn't even manage 150 miles

Man oh man was I sure glad to see this backhoe!!

Again, only took this video to share with my buddy, so nothing too special. I was extremely impressed with the operator: He did such a gentle job at not crushing the load and removed the entire load with this same small incremental motion so as to not pull too hard on the truck and trailer. I must have thanked him a dozen times for the help!
