I bought an '85 Winnebago class C to pull a boat. The first few times out we sometimes had an annoying nudge or bump when first taking off from a stop or ending a stop. The boat trailer has hydraulic disc brakes. After inspection of the receiver/ball mount I found a 1/2" nut welded to the bottom of the receiver tube. After putting a bolt in the nut which goes thru the receiver tube to tighten against the ball mount tube the bump is completely gone. If I forget to tighten the bolt after changing the ball mount the bump comes back.
