Stabilizer Bars on new Equalizer hitch problem

I purchased a new truck and had camping world install a new equalizer hitch. I have extreme difficulty moving the bars in and out as well as getting them onto my trailer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Once the trailer is connected to the truck, close the ball lock (secure with pin), raise the trailer using the tongue jack. This will raise the truck and trailer and allow you to slide the bars onto the L-Bracket. Put the locking pins in place then lower the tongue again.

thanks for your feed back, I have a difficult time moving the spring arms after they are detached from the trailer. I have to kick and push with all my force. Is something too tight?

You mean moving the sockets that hold the spring arms out, away from the trailer A-frame? There's 40 ft lbs torque on those bolts so there's some tension but not what you're experiencing. Sounds like you should take it back and have them check the torque.
