Yet another hitch question as we get everything set up on the "new" streamline.
Our Reese WD hitch has a funny lip just in front of the ball. It comes very close to the lip on the trailer, and I believe once I angle the trunnion back a little will contact it.
I know I should probably grind off or bend up the lip on the trailer, but can I get away with a 1/4" washer under the ball to space it up a bit?
I know I can't space up the current ball, since the shank isn't long enough. So I either need a 1" to 1-1/4" bushing, or a 2" ball with a 1-1/4" long shank. If I go with the new ball I can get one with a long enough shank to space it up just a little.
I know a slightly taller ball with have a higher forces on it, but without doing the math I believe going to a 1-1/4" shank should offset a 1/4" spacer.
Here is a bad pic of the setup. I had already disconnected everything when I remembered to take a photo.
