I should clarify, after reading my post above, I have not "had" to use the SLIDER yet. I have used the heck out of the hitch, but not had a need for the slider, even parking in my narrow driveway from a narrow street. I bought the Curt slider when I bought my 5th wheel, and at the time, had a short bed. I used the slider the first time backing in my driveway when I brought the 5er home. I have used it once since then, again just to see if it still worked. I had a long bed for about a year, but am back to a short bed now and still have not "needed" the slider. But for myself, I am comfortable knowing I do have it...just in case.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was wrong!
