Need a little help, fellas, before I attack this thing with a sledge.
New H-F trailer. Requires a 1 7/8" ball.
I get a 1 7/8" ball. Test fit the ball into the hitch receiver before
installing on hitch.
Now it's all put together and the F*C(ING THING WON'T GO ON.
It's behaving as if:
1) the ball is too big (it isn't, everything is 1 7/8")
2) the latch is in the closed position (it's up)
3) there's something inside the ball receiver (there's not--I've checked
The receiver is just sitting on top of the ball and won't drop over it.
Is there a trick I don't know about, or can I beat the ever living hell
out of this thing (because that's exactly what I'd like to do right now).
Everything here is new, clean, etc. I've hooked up trailers before. I
have no idea what the hell's going on here.
