OMG...backwards, unpinned! I prolly check my little deckover connections 6 times before I leave. I can't imagine how **** I'll be when I hook up to a fiver for the first time. I'll prolly drive the dealer nuts.
When it is properly setup the ball lever cannot be pulled.
You would think so, but when you cinch the 1/2" hold down bolt all the way up before you set the lock pin on the goose, it is impossible for the goose pin to engage. A little bit of common sense goes a long way, but a general lack of common sense seems to go much farther in the opposite direction!
Setup is pretty easy. Drop the hitch in place, securely latch it into the gooseneck, align hitch in bed, cinch down the small bolt then tighten the 2 U-bolts. The only real thought required in the process is the initial setup of positioning the vertical mounts front to rear on the main hitch as well setting the height. Once you have that established it is literally a 2 minute process to install or remove the hitch.
I would say that Reese Hitches is probably gonna have the best 5th wheel hitches for that. Check 'em out and see what you think... they usually have some pretty easy to follow installation instructions too.
