I have the 15k Superglide and it works great. You have to take your time when hooking up as you will need to position your TV and the king pin of the camper exactly lined up and then back the TV slowly to slightly pick up the camper in order for the jaws to lock around the king pin. Make certain you have chocks behind the camper wheels. I also recommend plugging the camper to the TV so you will have the camper brakes to help block the camper. Double check that the jaws are locked around the king pin before pulling out.
Be certain to keep the rails of the hitched properly lubricated. I use WD40. It is easy to apply and reapply. I always spray more WD40 whenever we stop for diesel, bathroom breaks, etc. Your warranty will be voided if you do not keep the rails lubricated.
You will be fine. Enjoy your new fiver!
