Every time we drop the tongue on the ball, we then raise the jack to make sure it is engaged. Seems like this is a good practice to follow, but maybe some aren't doing this.

Now you have a chance to turn it into a real Airstream by upgrading to a 2" coupler

I better add that is a joke us vintage snobs like to make, someone lacking a sense of humor will not get it. Sorry on advance.

Real trailers take a 12k 2-5/16's ball.

(Who needs humor when oneupsmanship is a long RV tradition?)

As to welders: In this park, out of almost 90-spaces, are at least fifteen welders certified in refinery & pipeline work. I barely can keep up with the above, but the guys around here are really something as their work related conversations get going.

Why would anyone want to tow 12,000 pounds when you can achieve the same with 4100? Not sure more weight one-ups ya

I use a bowling ball and a custom made coupler. My ball is bigger than yours.

You guys know it is not how big your ball is, it how you use it.

Always like Cats posts but my wallet never does. Seems they always make me think about something else we could do to our trailer.

The Quickbite coupler looked interesting but the comment about it may not work with weight distribution systems was an issue.

So I sent them an email asking about that. To paraphrase the reply: 'obviously we do not have information on all aftermarket products but if the weight distribution system is a frame type system there should be no issues'.

Thinking about it I'm not sure why there would be an issue - the actions and "range of motion" so to speak is the same as any other coupler. I don't see how that would interfere with say a Reese Dual Cam. Anyway - interesting coupler and worth thinking about....
