WASHINGTON — In this video, I update you on a problem I was having with disconnecting my new Ram M20 fifth wheel hitch. In my 2018 Ram 3500 Truck Review After 2000 Miles of Towing, I noted that the hitch was finicky to uncouple.
Well, I listened to tips from several commenters and have tried a few things figuring out what I was doing wrong.
I found out what I need to do is only lift the trailer a little way, not completely taking the weight off the hitch. Then pull the release and keep it all the way open using the retaining lever. Then continue to raise the trailer until the pin box and hitch just begin to separate vertically. At this point, I can pull the truck away from the fifth wheel, and the hitch jaws release easily.
