Hitch Ball Retaining Nut Backing off During Trip

Thanks, after reading the post I believe what happen is the dealer did not get the torque anywhere close to 450 foot pounds of torque required. Before welding it we got it as tight as we could, the design of the bottom side of the hitch will not allow a 2 13/16” socket to fit properly over the nut making it very difficult to achieve the proper required torque.

When you do it this way you don't "need" a torque wrench. Just a tape measure and a rough idea of your weight. And a little math.

Not sure if that's a compliment or not. I suspect not.

Actually, it's the most accurate method. How do you think torque wrenches are calibrated?

I say whatever works.
