Installing the ProPride took me several hours but removing it is a matter of minutes. Three steps.

1. Spring bars
- Unbolt the U-bolts that connect the spring bar links to the spring bars

2. Yoke tail
- Remove the bolt, collar and nut that support the yoke tail

3. Coupler
- Unlatch the coupler and drop the main hitch unit (probably needs a helper or a jack)

During the camping season I keep the tools needed for this procedure in the trailer. In case our truck becomes incapacitated during our travels I want the trailer to be towable and moveable by whatever recovery vehicle CAA/AAA sends.

The quickest way to steal an Airstream is to wrap your safety chains around the crook's receiver/ball assembly, raise or break the jack and drive away taking the various coupler locks, ProPrides and Hensleys with them.

You could slow them down for 30 seconds with a chain through the wheels and over the axle, but portable cutoff saws are fast.

Insurance and good parking is your best bet, supplemented with an electronic warning/locator device.
