Yes, if you have a standard WDH. Unfortunately some RV dealerships don't take the time to correctly setup/adjust a WDH, and they also fail to tell customers that once the TV/TT combination is "loaded" the WDH may need some additional adjustment.
The following statement is taken from a Reese WDH installation instruction document:
"Raise trailer tongue and rear of car with jack. Lower yoke of snap up bracket until it is parallel with the ground, and slip the closest link over the hook (If there are less than 5 links between hook and u-bolt, adjust ball mount angle rearward, and repeat procedure). With the snap up bracket handle over the yoke, raise until yoke has passed “over-center”. Slide the safety pin through the small hole to lock the yoke in place. Repeat for other side."
