Reese Dual Cam Position question,..

There are two holes that are on my hitch to lock the hitch bar into my truck hitch. Which one do i use? I have been using the lock hole on the farthest one from the ball because of the tight turn I have to make to get my Airstream in the driveway. I figured more clearance. The holes are about 2=3" apart. Does it really matter? Also, why are there two?

Thanks
Shane

Usually closer is better. Unless it interferes with opening a rear door on your TV, use the one closest to the ball. Others will chime in, I'm sure.

Some vehicle's receiver is tucked further under the bumper than others. My van is tucked so far under that I have barely enough room to use my Enkays. The PUs ans SUV I have towed with have plenty of room. It doesn't matter which you use, other than slightly increasing yo0ur effective overhang by using the furthest from the ball.

the closer the ball is to the rear axle the better, there is a % of fulcrum that is beneficial.
