I measured the distance from the top of my rear tire to the bottom of the fender well with out the trailer hooked up. Then when I went to unhook I'd run my front jack down until the measurement was the same as when it wasn't hooked up. Worked every time

I'm going to try some Amsoil HD and see if greasing it helps. I have a feeling my issue is more with the powder-coating then it is finding the sweet spot. I had my wife video tape my last unhook so I could see what the hitch did, and it didn't seem to 'jump' or fall so I think it's just sticking heavily because of the coating. I'll try out some of these ideas as well. Thanks for the help!

That's exactly what mine was doing. I could have it perfect with no tension and it still would stick. You'll be happy with it once you apply the Amsoil HD.

I use Vaseline. It's not quite as bad as grease, but gets the job done.
