Hilarious! I was wondering why you were changing your hitch......

Hilarious X2! I didn't notice that your post originated three years ago! I suppose this fits the better-late-than-never category. And of course, those on this forum aim to please, but not always in a timely fashion! Glad to hear that you did it the correct way. Cheers.

Take a nail set and "ping" the threads close to the nut to keep from backing out. This of course will make it a bit of a PITA to remove later on but at lest you will have some peace of mind.

Solved my problem by taking it to my local tire shop because I couldnt get the hitch bolts loose from the hitch bar when I needed to go to a taller riser. He hit it with his impact wrench [mine didnt budge it] and popped them loose. Installed the head on the new reese riser bar and he reversed the process.

I agree with the other poster, this isnt rocket science. Are you ok with giving a new ball a bump with your basic adjustible wrench? Probably not but do what you got to do and then check it every time you stop for gas or a potty stop the first run out.

PS: My Jayco dealer adjusted the hitch to the highest setting on the old bar [still not enough] and he did the same thing my tire guy did. No torque wrench or special way of sticking out his tongue. Just a commercial impact wrench.
