How to Prepare a 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver for Winter Weather


During the winter, I don’t need to tow. As a result, I remove my receiver until the snow goes away. In my area, the state salts the roads heavily. If I want to keep the receiver rust free, should I plug the hitch pin holes? If so, do you sell plugs?


Expert Reply:

In order to prevent rust from accumulating inside the trailer hitch receiver while not in use I recommend using a hitch cover like the Tow Ready Black Plastic Hitch Cover for 2" Trailer Hitches part # TR1202 to cover the receiver tube opening and a standard hitch pin like the Curt Pin and Clip part # C21510 to cover the hitch pin hole.
