A lot of your problems can disappear with smooth as silk driving. Look ahead stop long and gentle. To take off, ease onto the pin with your brakes at an idle, and so on. I learned to dive this way with partial loads in tube trailers. Even with anti-slosh bulkheads they have a lively ride.

Tried to add the 2 missing rubber pads. Problem is, that I cannot get the pins back in. The pads are too thick to go in the gap between the R20 base and the rear ISR. I'll try fabbing some thinner pads from scrap EPDM pond liner and try those tomorrow.

OK, I fabbed a couple of pads from EPDM. The pond liner is slightly less than half as thick as the Curt pad, so I tried stacking 2 of them, but still couldn't get the pins in. I ended up with just 1 on each side.

Don't know how they'll hold up, but for now they take the slack out.

As for getting any info from Curt, forget it. I sent a contact form to them asking about these issues and have received no response. The same thing happened last year when I contacted them about another issue - no response.

Thanks for all the replies. I'm stuck with this hitch for the next trip, but I'll probably replace it after I get back. I wish I had started this a couple of weeks earlier. I would have had time to replace it before this trip.
