Air Hitch

Bobi and Dick McKee

Recommended Posts

You don't need to but I liked to let mine down to the point that the hitch was between the stops, just enough to not be tight against the top one. I found it was easier to re-hitch with the air at that level as it was enough to make sure I didn't high-hitch but not enough to push the fiver back trying to wedge it up onto the hitch plate.

If its a TrailerSaver hitch you should let all the air out of the hitch before you unhitch the 5er to avoid the hitch popping up when pulling out and possibly damaging something. Don't ask how one might know this! Now the hitch is deflated as you bobtail the truck. When you get ready to re hitch just back in under the 5er. I re inflate the hitch after hooked up. Been doing this for years and see no reason to do otherwise, Best Wishes, Jay
