drop dwn hitch = bucking bronco
I have some height difference between the Jeep base plate and the hitch on the coach. I bought a 4 inch drop receiver to bring the base plate and hitch within 1.5 inches. However....
When the Jeep was connected (BluOx tow bar) directly to the coach (before adding the 4 in drop down receiver) I had no tugging or noise when pulling the jeep; hardly knew it was there.
Now that I have the added complication of a drop down receiver it seems the amount of play between the devices has increased and the jeep will tug and pull at the coach on rough or uneven road. It also clunks quite a bit.
I can live with it but I don't like it. I have thought about jamming lead wedges into the receivers to tighten up the fit. (they are both 2 inch).
I also have considered leaving the drop receiver at home.
Is this normal? Any suggestions?
