I have dodge ram CTD. I am going to install my hitch myself I think. Its not that I cant afford to have someone else do it. I just want to know how everything is put together in case there are problems down the road. I am new to this and I have a few questions. I think the loaded weight of my trailer is slightly under 13000lbs. So I bought a reese 15k hitch. I am pulling a 36 foot nu-way. I havent recieved the hitch yet. How does it mount to the ? Is it a bolt-in or a weld in instalation? How hard is it to do? What about placement? How far forward do you place it? Is there a way to raise the hitch slightly so I can leave my toolbox in? I know you have to be carefull with clearances. I do have a longbed. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
