There is a tensioning bolt on the thing that may have been tightened to much. Grease it up? Is there to much tounge weight?

No it has not been in saltwater . Yes I have used WD 40 and no it is not rusted.. Yes there is a tensioning bolt . I will check it . I don't think there is to much tongue weight. Thanks for input. FFO

I used to have a Vanguard Trailer that was made by the same people who make Trailmaster. I had the same problem. What a pain it was every time I went to disconnect. Never did fiqure out what the problem was.
