I don't quite understand the problem. Your hitch should be locked in whichever position when you are hooking up and unhooking. If it is not locked in position then yes it would be a problem. After you are hooked up you can unlock and slide the hitch or slide it manually without the trailer hooked up.

I do not believe he state if it was a manual slide or auto slide. Sometimes no matter how many times we ask for more information we just do not get it.

So I will try again.


1. Truck Make/Model?

2. Hitch Make/Model? Manual or auto side?

3. Trailer Make/Model? Pin box Make and Model?

With this information we should be able to find someone to help you, which would include info regarding the truck and trailer.

Example we usually do not recommend used 6.0 and 6.4 Powerstroke Diesel models, some year GMs, and RAMs.
