We've owned the 5th since new and we're a bit over 2 yrs at present. I noticed on the last trip the hitch seems to be "clunking" a bit more than it did previously. Nothing harsh, just a noticeable clunk when transitioning from pull to brake or the opposite.
I've inspected it (haven't taken it apart) and the rubber spring seems to be intact and the front and rear bumpers are in place. With some effort I can get a little movement and the sliding portion seems to return to its centered position.
Anyone with similar experiences? Does the spring wear out and get weak?
It's also possible that the clunk has always been there and I've just gotten paranoid.
