I guess it takes one to know one! I have used alot of my own engeneering ideas my wife said would never work. On the few that don't, she says I told you so. But says little when they do! I try to keep her quiet as possible!
Tentcamper,We want to Thank you for the shim. It saved us a lot of money in these hard times! I instaled it under the Toilet like the instructions said but our Hitch still rattles & makes noise! Your Friend, Youroo!!
I drilled and tapped a 3/8-16 hole in the collar on the side of the receiver and installed a 3/8 x 1-1/2" gr 8 bolt & lock nut. Screwed the bolt in against the hitch bar until it was tight and then tightened the lock nut. This holds the hitch to the tube and prevents movement. Has worked for yrs on several different tv we've had over the last 35 yrs. Also acts as another deterent from theft if someone cuts the padlock in the hitch pin.
