OK, I did the mod.(as per my last post except that I used a 3/4" bolt rather than 7/8") and towed for the first time this past weekend; the trailer sadly burned down on the trip (another post) but I can assure you that there was absolutely no noise or jerk from the hitch----100% quiet and smooth. I would highly reccomend this modification to everyone with the super glide and the modification only took me about an hour and a half which includes primeing and painting.

RRraider, sorry for your loss. I can't believe that.. sounds like its time to take action against your dealer. I read your post on the fire. It's a total loss then?? I read your post quickly.. was there not a fire extinguisher on board?? or was it too small??

I have narrowed down my noise. Even though I tighten the nylon block, the head of the hitch is rotating about the wedge block on the capture plate. Too much play in there. It's better if I keep the nylon block tight but if I stop real hard, it clunks. The lock set is at an angle when locked and I think it helps rotate the head upon stoping. Pullrite sent me a different capture plate over the weekend and thought it had tighter tolerances on the wedge block but today they said it's the same.... don;t think they understood my problem.

Good luck with the RV, hope your insurance takes care of you.. will you get the same trailer/model since you have a second chance?

Any pictures of the mod??
