Can anyone offer advice on trying to loosen the bolts that hold the hitch post to the tongue? I've sprayed lubricant, rust-buster and all sorts of stuff to try to loosen but have had no luck. Need to replace it but can't get it off.
Thank you in advance.
I'm kinda in the dark by what you're calling a hitch post. Not sure what you're referring to. If it is a bolt you're having trouble with a bigger wrench might work but be prepared to break it so hope you have access to replacement bolts, nuts, washers. It it's a stud try to be more careful but you can apply heat using a propane/acetylene torch or try an impact gun. The vibration often will help to break things free. Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. Good luck with it.

I've sometimes used a hammer on the wrench handle to "shock" a tight nut into moving. The hammer blows sometimes can provide enough extra, momentary force to make the nut turn without undue stress. Sometimes, of course, it doesn't work, and the nut and bolt can be damaged anyway.
