My two cents, sliders are added help. If backing in to a tight spot, you can gain up to 14" between the cab of the truck when you slide the hitch. This prevents the front cap of the camper from hitting the back window of the truck and breaking it. It also sprays broken glass all over the interior of the truck and on passengers. It also puts a big dent in the truck cab. My hitch slides automatically and I can't see how it would mess with the axles. My friends have a hitch they need to manually slide and they try to do it while in a straight line before backing into their site. I hope that helps.
I understand how the hitch slides, just wondering if others have been told about damaging the alignment on the tandem wheels when the wheels are pushed across a hard surface instead of rolling as you would with a standard turn. Thank you for your comments, sounds like they come from real life experiences.
