Yep, rthipodaux, I forget to mention that issue. For others, the deal is that you have to be within 16 degrees of straight alignment to hook up or to unhook. Often, when we are in a pull through, I can not get the truck straight enough with the trailer to unhook in the usual way. What I do is to remove the two pins that hold the hitch head in the hitch, then raise up the hitch head to clear the hitch, and then I can drive off the truck. Re-hooking is just the reverse of this - but it can be a geometric challenge when backing up the truck to get the hitch and hitch head aligned properly. It's not so tough the second or third time - but that first time is a real challenge.

But I would never trade my Superglide. The peace of mind knowing that my trailer will not hit the cab is worth it.

Here's a link to the owners manual of the 16K Superglide:http://www.pullrite.com/pdfs/4100-4400_SG_OM.pdf

There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.
