Hitch ball torque and kudos to RV Wholesalers
« on: December 07, 2006, 08:15:49 AM »
First off, I want to put in a (non-commercial) plug for RV Wholesalers.  I ordered a WD hitch, UPS lost one of the boxes, so RV Wholesalers immediately sent out a replacement in time for us to go pick up our new trailer this comming Saturday.  Excellent customer service!

IGNORE THE FOLLOWING, I FINALLY FOUND SOME CONFIRMATION (450 FT-LBS IS CORRECT)
Question:  The tag on the hitch ball (1-1/4" diameter shank) says to torque to 45D ft-lbs.  (That's the letter D after the 45)  Is this supposed to say 450 ft-lbs?  Seems like an awful lot of torque...I'd have to stand on a 2.5' long breaker bar, which would probably break...
