Sway Control Spring Arms

This question pertains to the Equil-i-zer, Model 90-00-1000 sway control arms.

I seem to recall that there was a thread regarding these arms and that users would remove and store them when the TT was detached and the hitch no longer in use.

Query, is it necessary or advisable to remove these arms when the hitch is raised to detach from the tow ball? I can think of no good reason to do so since it seems okay to me to leave the entire assembly alone while the stored trailer is resting on the tongue jack.

'...users would remove and store them when the TT was detached and the hitch no longer in use.' This is what I do. I also remove the hitch from the truck's receiver. I have an extended shank and it sticks out a ways from the back of the truck. Also, the truck is used for other things besides being a TV.

'Query, is it necessary or advisable to remove these arms when the hitch is raised to detach from the tow ball?' This question confuses me. If you mean after 'the TT was detached and the hitch no longer in use' like the first part of your post I would say it depends on what you are doing with your TV.
- If you are just parking your TV, then sure, leave the arms on.
- If you will be driving your TV, then I'm not sure...
.... can you pivot the arms so they won't be a danger to someone?
.... can you secure the arms so they won't be a danger to someone?

This is just my opinion. I hope it is what you were looking for...
