We picked-up our new 5'er, a North Point 377 RLBH, late last fall, but it was too late in the season to use it, so now we just look at it, covered in snow, on the side yard! It's our first 5'er, replacing a 27' travel trailer.... In 1989 we borrowed an Apache Tent Camper (basically a canvas-topped utility pop-up trailer. We've had two PUP's, a hybrid, and the hard-side since then. This is a huge step-up, and we can't wait to get out in it!

I have had that issue when I first got my 5W. I took a few times of fighting it and I realized it was always when I pulled straight in and parked, if I backed in no problem. I finally figured the pin was against the jaws pulling straight in. I now set the level, lock the 5Wbrakes with the controller, go to reverse at idle in the TV, then back to park. The TV moves back just enough to put the pin in the front of the hitch slot away from the jaws. Pull and it releases, happy days!
IT WORKED!
Thank you again.
