tow bar hook-up

there is an excellent video on u-tube (by a blue ox tech) that will explain & demonstrate hook up & un hook of the blue ox system.
I have the same set up with my class c & wrangler, when it gets in a bind like that just turn the steering wheel of the jeep all the way to the right then all the way to the left & the pressure on the pins will be gone.

Thank you! I will check out the YouTube video, and thanks for the tip.
I recorded the tech showing me how to connect the system up. But, undoing is where I had problems. I bought a can of dry lube at Lowes yesterday, just in case.

I do the same thing (i.e., long punch and tap the pins out). The key is to relieve the pressure by pulling forward a little bit, but sometimes it is not possible. After a little bit of practice, you'll get it down pat!

I tapped in a large blunt nail I found in the garage. It pushed the pins out, but the nail got snagged in place! That's what took me so long to get out. It was really frustrating, but I was determined. I did cry a little though!
