I was informed that the use of a Reese Revolution or Sidewinder hitch were not endorsed by Jayco and could impact warranty claims on the frame.

Did your dealer install the Revolution?

I do not currently have a Superglide.

I was told if you get into this situation, to pull the pins that attach the hitch to the frame rails or Superrails, raise the landing gear to free truck from hitch, then drive out.

The hitch remains attached to the kingpin.

My question is what to do when you need to hitch back up?

This was what I was told. I have not tried it.

I too pull a 2011 365 BHS using a Pullrite Superglide hitch. My TV is listed in my signature. I wanted more cab room, so, I suffered for bed length. As mentioned earlier, this is a long camper; in my opinion, you won't find too many situations where you would want to unhitch with a 16 degree (or greater) angle. I had one tight squeeze in Hershey Park CG where I had to jackknife the thing to get it in the spot; however, once it was in I could easily pull forward and "erase" that 16 degree angle. Remember, it is a long rig ~ especially when you add the cargo rack on the rear (like I have)...

We pull our Pinnacle 5er with a Chevy Duramax Crew Cab Short Bed.

We have a a slider hitch but in the 6 years we pulled our 05 Eagle and since we have had our current Pinnacle, we have never needed to use the slider on the hitch.

The Pinnacle with the rounded front cap has more clearance that the 05 Eagle did so we may never use the slider portion of the hitch.

Rob, I hear you, but I'd hate to get into a situation and only have a non-sliding hitch.

It's like insurance. You only need it if you don't have it......

I really appreciate the info. How do you like the 365 BHS? I was wandering what dealer you bought it from, and if you had ever attended the Hershey RV show? I here that there are some great deals during the show and I am trying to get some info to decide if I should wait for the show, or buy one now. This will be one of my next posts, but seing as you mentioned Hershey CG, (which my family just lives for,) thought that you may have attended. Thanks again.

Greg
