I am trying to make towing a pleasurable experience or should I say 'not white knuckled or puckered'.
Once I have it set for the TV and trailer it is not a problem for hook up or dropping. I raise the hitch to relieve torque, the chains go slack, I pull the pin, drop the bracket and finish disconnection. Reconnecting is the reverse. If I have stored the trailer I get in position with the hitch, connect the bracket, adjust the compression to my setting and lower the hitch to the ball. I seldom use the socket and today I forgot to take the ratchet and had no problem getting the right connection setting.
When I sell the trailer I will put the original system back on and keep the Andersen for the next unit.
