In jest.

Gee, I'm 71, but I think I forgot to look. Just a dumb retired Marine that always does stuff the grunt way.

How are you going to release the hitch from the bottom / what steps do you need to follow? There are a few different mounting systems that it's hard to offer input...

OP evidently has that figured out, he is just asking about hanging it. My Reese just has 4 pins to pull. B&W has a similar hitch also in addition to others.

Thanks for your input, but my question still stands for the Op.

Ependy, not to be argumentative, but where in OP's post is he asking for help unhooking the hitch?

He doesn't. My last question still stands for Spock.

OldCoot, if it helps you not be argumentative- call it a learning experience for me since I have a B&W Companion hitch and may want to be able to do the same thing.

Sounds good to me, just couldn't figure out the line of questioning.

I hang my 16k from the pin box.
Normally people scatter like 20 gauge buck shot around my place when heavy lifting is in order.

I have one pin under the bed of truck, I pull the pin and lock the pin out then take the hitch off and out of truck bed and that way I have a clean bed, no rails. I have a ball that I can put in so I can tow a goose neck, it stays inside of pickup. I hung the hitch on the pin and everything worked out fine. When I put the hitch back on I put the hitch in the truck bed and then I just worked the hitch around to get the hitch back in the square hole, saved me a lot of problems, plus my back. I have the level-up on camper and I put some jack pads under my front jacks so I could get the front of camper up a little higher.
