Trying to change time zone in Windows 7 and the clock software freezes

I moved time zones and I could not change time zones because the software would freeze.  Naturally I assumed it was more Microsoft quirks.  However I was finally able to get it to take the change in time zone by going to the INTERNET TIME tab, clicking on the CHANGE SETTING button and unchecking the SYNCHRONIZE WITH AN INTERNET TIME SERVER box.

U Haul Trailer Hitch Design


Specifications & Measurements

  • Hitch ball size: 1 7/8  or  2 inch ball.
  • Maximum hitch height is specified as 25 inches
  • Measured natural height of trailer hitch ball receiver:  19 inches ground to bottom ( stopped by a U Haul to get this number.  It applies to the hitch seen in the diagram above.  Simpler version without auto safety break will be slightly lower. 
  • Height of the top of the square of my hitch receiver is: 14.5 inches

A rise of about 3 inches would put the hitch at the natural height.  Will use the bigger ball.
