fordmantpw ... You probably need to do this once to make sure it is adjusted properly. Loosen the bolts, slide the wedge back, hook up, make sure you are perfectly straight, then slide the wedge forward and tighten both bolts. Then you should not have to do it again!

Thats it. loseend the wedge, hooked up, tighten one, un hook, tighten 2 and hooked up. did it twice and all working now. I missed the post above by fordmantpw because I was at the trailer and on the phone with Reese support. They said the exact same thing and it worked. Reese was amazing with help. Very Very happy and looks like we leave on Friday for the maiden voyage. Thank you everyone.

Just make sure you disengage the safety latch... Hmm... I wonder why that's the first thing I thought of when I read this

The tech is/was right, just flip the safety catch up and leave the lever arm in while hitching. It will automatically open and latch shut. Then all you do is flip the safety catch back over and lock it, hook the emergency brake cable, 7way cord and retract the landing jacks. Just make sure the trailer is low enough to make it slide up the hitch. If it is perfectly level, it is very hard to make it lock. I fought it for 5 minutes with it level and it never locked until I lowered the trailer about 1.5" and it locked the first time. Good Luck, it is a great hitch!
