I took our Jayco 32BHDS in this week because the trailer hitch would not lock onto the truck ball. The dealer said that they have seen several TT with the same problem. It seems to lock, but when all hooked up the trailer coupler lock pops up. Which indicates that trailer is not locked onto the truck ball.
We beat this topic to death recently like a rented mule but I'm always game to get a few licks in. Anytime you have tension or compression of the trailer/TV combo, the ball wants to stay engaged in the coupler. After you chock your trailer have you ever noticed the TV move slightly after you put it in park? That's enough movement to make the trailer coupler grab the ball on the underside of the ball radius near the necked down portion. When you jack the trailer up in this situation, you lift the TV until the upward pressure is great enough to pull the trailer forward or the TV backward and release the ball.
Your 100% right, if the truck rolls a little bit it makes it hard to get the coupler off the ball.

This is not our 1st rodeo so to speak so I'm confused by why the problem with the disconnect is so much more problematic with our 2014 white hawk than with our previous TT. The WH is 5' longer and maybe 40% heavier, but the issue is 10X more of a problem now. I get the TV rolling back or forward when you set the tranny to park, but that should be the same as with our previous TT. Is there something different about the hitch that Jayco installs?
