I'm sure some of you are going to get a big laugh out of this topic, as I will somewhere down the road. This will also show how much of a rookie I am. The drove from Denver to Salt Lake to pick up out new Cruiser CF26RK, and arrived home lthis morning around 2am.
At the dealers they showed me all the stuff i need to know and practiced connecting and disconnecting the 5th wheel from the hitch. I went out this morning and I think I did everything the way they told me, but sure enought I can't get the darn thing disconnected.
The only difference between the two locations is that I don't have a paved area to disconnect the 5th wheel from the hitch.
Any idea, or suggestions, and yes I can take a lot of ribbing.
I've encountered a similar situation so perhaps I can help. The release mechanism may be in a slight bind. Try blocking the wheels and bump the hitch backward or forward slightly. That may free it up and allow it to release. This happens to me occasionally and that is the way I get my hitch to release.
