What is the name/model of the hitch, and the tongue weight (TW) rating of the hitch? Round bar or trunnion bar?
I don't think it's possible for the trunnion bars in my Reese Strait-Line hitch to disconnect while going forward. Maybe when backing into a severe jackknife, but I doubt it.
And I'm positive the trunnion bars in my ProPride hitch cannot come disconnected while towing, assuming they were properly installed and adjusted.
Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.
