Could Hoist Remove Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Slider # DM8550035 From Truck Bed

Question:

Is there a correct way to remove this hitch with a hoist. Will it damage the hitch if it is lifted by the head. I have an engine hoist I use now to remove my Reese hitch by wrapping a rope around the head and lift it straight up.

Helpful Expert Reply:

The head of the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550035 that you referenced is rated to be able to handle up to 5,250 lbs of vertical weight. If you wanted to wrap a rope around the head to lift the weight of the hitch (300 lbs) the hitch would be totally fine.
