Hensley Hitch

Does anyone know if there is a RV center, garage etc. in the Charlotte NC area, that is familiar with a Hensley hitch? I want to confirm my hitch installation is correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would call Hensley. Their phone support is excellent and they will ask for pictures and measurements. They will take good care of you 7x24.

I had one on my last trailer. Great hitch. However if you have to take in for any repair or warranty work you will have to remove as most dealers have a forklift or tractor to move trailers around. Already been there. But itís a great hitch.

I imagine it's the same as with the ProPride we've had since 2009. I read the manual several times and called the company with questions before installing it myself. It's a good idea to get to know your sway elimination hitch well.

I leave my stinger that goes into my truck receiver when I leave my rig at service center, way easier than removing hitch.

If they use a vehicle with a receiver and are willing to use your stinger, that would work. But as Rdeejr mentions, a lot of RV service departments move trailers around with a forklift or tractor and those often have a hitch ball attached to them so leaving the stinger won't work.

In my case, I've not much trailer service since I installed the hitch but on occasions when I have I was able to park it outside and they did the work there.

Depends on the service center. Some of them will only move trailers around with a hi-lo (with a ball on the fork). Much easier for a good hi-low driver, as they can see directly what they are doing, and MUCH more maneuverable in a tight parking lot.


Again, probably depends on the service center's policy.

Everywhere I have left our Riggs they have figured out a way to move without removing hitch, someone always has a pickup truck with a receiver.
