And about that - as I noted, the chief mechanic at the dealer had one, so when I took it in for service, I had no concerns. They put the lock bolts in so they could move it around their yard. When I picked it up, it made some "clunking" noises on the way home, but wasn't till I got there that I found the lock bolts had not been taken out! This meant there was NO place for the fifth to pivot. Pin box, Revolution, and hitch were all mangled up. Luckily no frame damage to the truck or 5th. Dealer repaired all quickly, including even the mechanic taking parts off his at home as loaners, as they couldn't get them all in on time for our upcoming trip! Now I ALWAYS check that the bolts have been taken out!
