Expert Answers about Pintle Hitch

  • Slack When Towing with Convert-A-Ball Pintle Hook Combo
  • When using a Pintle Ball combination hitch like the # PH1 , a certain amount of slack is inevitable because the opening is much larger than if you were using a standard pintle hitch.

  • Troubleshooting the 5th Wheel Hitch King Pin Vertical Movement
  • You used terms that are not compatible. You have a 5th wheel hitch which will have pin box with a king pin which is very different from a pintle hitch and lunette ring which would be a bumper pull industrial style trailer. For your pin box, it is likely that there is not enough weight on the pin box which is likely partially due to the kayaks on the back even though they are light but your entire trailer is light so it does make an impact. You can move more weight toward the front...
