Its like threading the needle backing into it that way and is way way beyond my towing abilities.

If you leave them in for any length of time they rust in place. There is a YouTube video of a guy trying to pull it out by tying it to a tree with truck chains. Pretty funny video until his helper decides to hit it with a sledge while under tension.

Sounds like a PITA, glad I asked before I tried it.

This would be more trouble than it is worth, eventually you will have to lift it again because trying to line up with the trailer will be nearly impossible. Unhook the trailer by uncoupling the ball from the trailer and leave your hitch connected to the truck as Mtnguy states.

Dont do it. Uncouple the trailer and then remove the hitch if needed. Yes, you can do what you are thinking of doing, but it will be a headache to get it back in.

Easy hockeytownmom! Once you ask a question you have to let the answers roll in. Others are responding or giving their opinions not only for your benefit but for the other members contemplating or experiencing the same.
