NorthPoint/Pinnacle MorRyde hitch.

Can somebody measure their hitch movement for me. Like in the picture. I need the distance the white stability pads move in the dust (hopefully someone has dust on thier hitch)
I emailed MorRyde and got a reply back immediately.
I basically told them I thought maybe my hitch isn't working correctly because my truck is a "chucking bronco".

They told me to measure from the FRONT of the front stability pad to where it stops making marks in the dust.
(See picture. I have about 3 1/2")
He said this way he can tell what's going on.

Anyway, that was 2weeks ago and I haven't heard back. I've emailed twice...still nothing.

So if someone could measure theirs for me I could see if mine is operating properly.
Apparently there is two different weight rubber pads that control the movement.

Thanks.

NorthPoint/Pinnacle MorRyde hitch.

So want us to measure our dust? LOL



I have the same thing and it looks similar but I will measure it as soon as the Sun comes up!



BTW, mine only chucks on some poured concrete interstates.

Mine is more like Norty's. About half a pad in each direction unless I make a real hard stop.

Norty, yours looks like about half of what mine is.

That side to side movement is strange. Usually chucking is front to back or up and down.

When I look in the rear view mirror, it's amazing how much movement is dampened out.

I wish this guy would email me back. I don't understand. All I can think of is its not working as designed and he wants nothing to do with making it right.

Here's what I got...sounded like he was going to get to the bottom of it.

I am so sorry to hear of you bad experience with the MOR/ryde pin box. Normally what we find when that happens, is the durometer of rubber is either too soft which allows it to bottom out or too stiff and it isn’t allow the box to move at all. Could you look at those round white blocks (Stability Pads) between the skid plate and the main frame. The round blocks will clean off the dust on the top side of the skid plate when moving. Can you please measure from the front of the stability pad to where the dust is cleared off (see sketch below). That will give me a good idea of what’s going on.

I was going to say that based on your movement the rubber damper might be failing, or torn.

Time to go to Jayco. Push them to push the vendor or go through the dealer.

It seems maybe something is wrong, but it's brand new.
My trailer isn't near as heavy as a 377, or similar, with 6 batteries, genny, and washer/dryer.

Since you are having some communication issues with MorRide I would follow 3'senough advise and get your dealer involved.

I don't have a North Point but I went and measured my MorRyde. Mine shows 4" on the dust marks. I too still have some chucking. I have 20% on the pin so I don't think it's a loading issue. I have never thought about the dust measurement being an indicator of it not working right. I just figured it was the way it is. I know that for some a MR does or doesn't eliminate all chucking. I figured I was the latter. I'm very interested in how this issue runs it's course.
I have the lightest spring rates that MR uses so in going up to the next higher rate may be too stiff.
