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!
It really shouldn't be difficult. Mine is super easy to hook up, and I don't have to "slam" into the hitch as I have seen other non-SideWinder folks do. Just back up easy, it will align as necessary, then just latch your hitch.
You do need to make sure you have the proper wedge for your hitch, though. If you don't have a Reese, you need to order the proper wedge (even though the one that comes with it is "universal"). $30-$50 for the proper wedge is money well spent!
One other thing: grease all around your wedge really well. It makes for a "slicker" hookup and things just slide right into place.
