Hello. New problem, I was hitching the roo yesterday and ran into a problem. This only happens if the sun is coming down and the cab of the truck causes a shadow that basically hides the ball. I am thinking of adding reflective material to the hitch.

There are several variants of this. I think it could be dummied up with a magnet and a driveway edge reflector (or a yardstick).

At Harbor Freight, you can buy a pair of magnetic antennas, that have yellow foam balls on the end.
One goes on the ball and the coupler.
Cost about $8-10.
