Same issues here too. I think I've figured out MY problem, though; in my yard, my trailer parking spot is level, yet the truck is still inclined due to driveway grade.
When lifting the TT off the ball, there is just enough vertical angle that causes the rear of the TT tounge to catch the ball. Once with beating and jiggling, I finally did decouple, and when it popped off, the darn truck rolled forward almost two inches. It was almost as if the TT was holding the truck on grade, while the tranny did not have enough hold.
My solution thus far is to use the ebrake to hold the truck while decoupling.
It seems that these new hitches are somewhat sensitive to a vertical misalignment of truck and trailer.
