Also, be sure to grease your hitch ball. I towed mine dry the first couple times and the lever started getting stuck. I greased the ball and the problem went away immediately.

one thing i would do is take the bar that you use to attach the weight distribution bars and give the latch a tap while holding it up to get it to release but that was only sometimes when there was pressure on it somehow, or put the wheel chocks under the tires and put the truck in drive and let it idle forward it will take the pressure off the latch and make it easier to slide back

A decent sewer hose with a clear ABS hydroflush fitting. Can't have too much flushi-out capability. After that, I'm with the dump-the-cheapo-mattress crowd. We went with an adjustable air mattress with dual controls, although we both like max firmness.
As for the coupler problem, on occasion we've needed to move the TV forwards or backwards a half a tad. (1 tad = .5 inch.) If your camper didn't come with an electric tongue jack, I'd say that's in a tie with the mattress for an early mod, but that might be an age-related thing!

IMHO a topper works best on a good mattress that lacks cushioning between you and the springs. But if the support just isn't there to begin with, the topper's effectiveness is reduced. And since they can run into the hundreds, the money might better be spent on a good mattress. Here's what we put in our guest bedroom in our home. It is a full queen which may or may not work in a camper and it is heavy which can be a factor for some campers, but it gives you something to consider if you do want to upgrade the stock bedding.

Ikea 4.75" queen foam mattress. Best money we ever spent on the travel trailer.
