Well you could just get another ball (you have an extra then) and put it in there and that would be really easy to do ,probably could tell alot more without all the weight hanging on it .

The hitch is engaging the ball and I am able to lock the coupler. As a matter of fact when I raise the trailer after locking the coupler, it is locked on there because it starts to lift the back of my TV.
Yes I just looked at it and confirmed that it is a 10,000Ibs rated 2 5/16" ball.

Yep, figured I can go pick up another ball to test with or better yet instead of stressing out over this, maybe I'll just have to drive back to the AS dealer and have them look at it.

It costs about $30. Looks like you remove the roll pin in the handle and it falls apart. Clean it up and put in the new part.
Thanks for the info! Are these pretty standard? Could I find this at say Camping World or is it specific to AS?
