Hi Brenda,
I'm still scratching my head as to your situation. I have a friend with a Valley hitch and I am trying to remember if it uses jaws or a slide bar. You say that it was hitched properly and you ended up dropping it on your truck bed. If it was hitched properly then it should not have dropped. If you were high hitched, then yes, this can happen. An inspection revealed that nothing was wrong with the hitch? This is perplexing. What is your theory?

I'm somewhat confused by your posts. You said your 5er squats your F350, but you bought only a 16K Reese hitch to replace the Valley hitch? Since the F350 is rated to haul more weight than the 16K is rated for, things don't add up in my head. Could you post the actual weights of your rig? Perhaps I could then straighten out some things in my figures.
