I was given a mind altering substance.

Get a neighbor kid to help load and unload your hitch. Teach em the value of work = money.

I sometimes leave the hitch attached to the trailer , pull the pins and the trailer jacks will lift the hitch and trailer off of the truck . Never have to lift .Leave the hitch hang until you need it again , reverse to install !Literally!!!


I saw this suggestion previously, and thought it would be a pretty good idea. I have a portable gantry crane 12 ft high and 12 ft wide with an air powered chain hoist on it, so I would be lifting it out with a strap and setting it on a harbor freight furniture dolly, but I don't have/don't want a 5th wheel, so that wont happen, but leaving it attached to the trailer is a pretty good idea.

My hitch is hanging on the king pin as we speak. Why go through all the gyrations?

When it drops on his ankle or foot.....YOU may be given an *economical* altering substance - a summons when his parents "pursue legal avenues" to recoup medical bills, etc...[emoticon]

Even if *he* doesn't know the result associated with the/an injury - bet his parents do = your (or your Hm Owners Ins Company)...value of a work injury = money...[emoticon]

Bad Karma - but it is what it is. We live in a litigious society!
