Why Is There Slop In My Trailer Coupler When Mounted To the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball?

Question:

I pulled my trailer empty and the locking latch and my ball have damage. Attacted photos. Are there any adjustments needed. I have the right size ball and it looks like there was to much slop between the ball and coupler.

Helpful Expert Reply:

If you have a lot of excess slop in your coupler then you will likely need to replace the coupler latch. A coupler latch like the one in the Repair Kit for Titan Couplers # T1848700 will wear down over time and will need replaced when it wears down.

If you can identify what coupler you have I can help you find the correct repair kit for your Coupler.

The White Grease Hitch Ball Lube # 58117 will help to prevent the coupler latch from wearing down as quickly and also reduce some of the hitch noise you likely experience while towing.
