TT hook-up ain't got nothing on me now LOL

Note: This will only work if your Kingpin moves easily

Well...that's what I thought, too. At the RV park space was tight, so I was clever, and angled my Revolution to the left and backed up. The king pin failed to go in, turned a bit, and the trailer slide back even with the chocks in place. Tried again, same thing. Maneuvered the truck in the small drive space I had, and backed straight in. Again, the hitch refused to mate.

Then I realized, rookie me forgot to open the hitch latch bar. The king pin had been bouncing off of it. I felt so stupid.
