The binding issue is due to the landing gear not going down at the same time.

Theoretically the rig is at an angle. Have tried when they are down moving the rig left or right. Problem is you can not tell were it is hung up.

So the solution from Curt was to unhitch without the landing gear down. They did not offer to pay for the damage when I drop my rig though.

O well I am moving on. Ordered a BD3.

No offense intended, but just not seeing the issue you are having. Lippert allows up down and left and right (manual mode). As mentioned, I have never had a problem unhitching. I just lower the front legs, pull the lever and pull away. No left to right adjustments needed. I have a Curt Q20. Which hitch are you using? Even if the legs are a little uneven, I wouldn't think that would be enough to cause issues to the point to prevent unhitching. Possible that something else is causing the binding? It helps to chock the trailer wheels then put the truck in neutral for a moment to relieve any stress between the hitch and pin before pulling the lever (of course truck is back in park before pulling the lever). Works for me anyway.

I also have a Q20... The issue is that the king pin is binding in the jaws. This is due to the not exactly level coach.

Well after 6 months and countless hours on the phone with Curt I am moving on to a BD3.

I also have a Q20 and have found that if you lift the pin just a little but not too much, it will release. Just have to get used to it.

I have Curt Q24 with lippert 6 point. Never had a problem unhitching the unit even with truck on an angle compared to the trailer sitting level. Take the weight off pull out and hit auto level. I have been rving for 40 years and have numerous different hitches and only had them bind if the angle from the TV and trailer was severe enough

Ditto. Curt works well for me too. Would buy it again in a minute
