Which is the best Hitch coupler repair kit

I am planning to replace the Hitch coupler on my 34' Classic Limited before my next long trip. Can anyone tell me which is the right and best Coupler repair kit? Obviously it would have to be 2 5/16 coupler.

The coupler kit I ordered came with a retainer clip and a spring, which was not present in my set -up and I could not see how to use it. Is that clip for a different application or am I missing something?

I don't think you are missing anything. If you have a Marvel Coupler, the parts in question do not exist. Since there is no "shark fin" type of latch.
