Hitch problem

I am new to the forum and enjoy reading about travel ideas. I tow a Cedar creek TK32. Have an RBW sliding hitch, which will not slide. You can not move the slider handle to start the sliding process. If locking collar is moved out of the way handle will operate freely. Does anyone have any idea way the locking part will not release?

Usually the hitch being in a bind is what causes you not to be able to release the slide lock. Most times I can just put the tv in neutral and it'll relieve enough pressure to allow me to unlock the slide.

As Bama said or you may have to put in reverse then back to park to take pressure off

Are you saying that you have to remove the head in order to get the slider to unlock?
It sounds like something is binding the slider lock.
Has it ever worked?

Hitch problem

Thanks for the replies!
The TV and trailer must be level & straight in order to slide. Have taken it back to dealer. The dealer does not have ideas as of yet. To check back with him at the end of week.
I have found out that RBW has sold out Al-KO. I am not sure when.
The hitch head works well. There has been no problems with hooking up and unhooking.
Yes, it did work. Operation of the slider has away been somewhat difficult. I will try to post some pictures.

Pictures would help us see what you see. Still seems like something binding the slide.

I have the R16 and I have to back up to release (handle unlocked) and then pull forward to move the slider toward the tail gate
