That's usually a result of a lot (too much?) tongue weight and or some really good bumps. Could also be corrosion in your neighborhood. How many people have actually checked their tongue weight on scales??Originally posted by Bob Saccenti
I noticed that factory installed hitches come just bolted on.
Recently riding shotgun with a friend towing a 42’ boat up from the keys with a 3500 Ford the bolts that hold on the hitch sheered off on one side, almost loosing the boat. When I looked at the damage I was surprised that the hitch was not spot wielded to the frame. Also I was not impressed with the factory bolts. I myself in the past always spot wielded the hitches just for safety.
