Something to think about
Finally getting ready for the first trip of the year. I store my Windjammer at a local campground, so I rented a site for a couple of days to check things out and de- winterize the TT. I towed it only about 1/2 mile to the site. Its a campground ( no break neck speeds allowed ). I backed it into the site and the hitch area made a load noise. I stopped looked at the hitch and didn't see anything. Now I did not use the weight distribution bars since it was a very short tow, and no open roads. When I uncoupled the TT I noticed that the ball assembly was really tilted in a really bad angle. After I took care of the camper, I tried to adjust the hitch but did not have the proper tools. I was not very far from the dealership,ran by there and discovered the center bolt was very loose and the tongue weight caused the ball assembly to tilt. The weight distribution bars would have kept the ball assembly straight. I don't know if there could have been a safety issue, but could have been a bad situation under way. Just something else to put on the list during the pre season check.
