I backed into and damaged the hitch coupler on my 1987 25' Sovereign
. Original 2-5/16" Atwood hitch and coupler. I was able to get the repair kit
from a dealer no too far from where I was camping. I didn't have a way to expand the pin that holds the handle on to the shoe lock, so I used a different locking hitch retaining pin which fit. Now that I'm back home, I want to correctly install the pin that came with the kit. I'm talking about part number 88508 in Figure 8 of the linked .pdf file
(kit instructions). It looks like I need to expand one end larger than the hole in the handle, insert the unexpanded end, then expand the remaining end to capture it. What is the best way to do that? Thanks!
