I am always drawn first to the opinion page of a newspaper. I guess I enjoy reading stuff that I know just ain't true. Reminds me of this forum sometimes.

All in fun guys. [emoticon]

Yes. But it normally leads to staff reduction in the news and opinion side. Smaller news holes between the ads.

Snip...

Their is one fact here, he put a bind on the handle closing. The handle would not close, he pulled out ,and dropped the fifth wheel . I will repeat, saw it first hand in Montana two summers ago in a small RV park , same thing, except he realized his handle was not closing. The disk plate was banged up a little ,and was warped , holding it up just enough to put a bind on the handle. Took the disc off ,all was good. Handle closed ,and off he went.

I glad the you acknowledge that to many slip discs can cause a high hitch condition.

What we do not know is the full sequence, as the video is highly edited. RCMAN46's one photo shows what appears to be a sliding bar behind the king pin at some point in the sequence.

Update: Part #3 is now available. Extra slip disc seemed to be causing the problem of not latching correctly, cause a higher than normal hitch up and create the uncoupling problems, when he finally got it hitched.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHsVk46M........pX0uYyieSzlk2qh04cmobtZPM0jY5_iId0JFk_IQ

You may have to back it up to the beginning.

Also, I can not find documentation on the older Husky 24K EZ Roller. However the latch handle does not have enough travel to be a true sliding bar hitch. Final concussion is that the extra slip disc caused it to be to high to latch correctly. Truly a case that a tug test would have exposed.
