I installed my Pro-Pride hitch last week and got a chance to test it out this weekend. First off, I have to say WOW! I have never had a trailer stay so rock solid in my life. I was even able to take a little more weight off the tongue (probably down to only 5-7%) and she still stayed right behind me and didn't sway a bit.. even on a stretch of highway that is known to be a wind tunnel at all times. Even my mother-in-law behind me said that the trailer never once moved an inch side to side. I am extremely impressed with it.
I have no issues at all hooking up like many reviews say (maybe it's thanks to the camera). I actually think it's easier than the standard ball. The issue I have is with unhooking. With everything being a fixed mount, I cannot seem to find the 'sweet spot' where the weight is off of the TV but also not lifting up on the TV either. Can anyone give some pointers or tricks to unhooking? The site next to me gave me really funny looks when I pulled out and there was a slight bang from the hitch finally popping loose. I'm not sure if maybe it's just because the powder-coating is causing the hitch to stick, or what, but it seems to be a major PITA to unhook... Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
