Removing the Hi-Rise 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 9480 from a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch  


Does the hitch remove from the bed by simply unlocking the gooseneck lock on the 9464-35-5W underbed rail system? I read in an installation manual that the bolts needed to be removed from the pin adapter to remove the hitch. Now, I cannot locate that installation manual on line.

On the Hi-Rise hitch # 9480:

"Before towing the 5/8 hex nuts connecting the Post Assembly to the Base Assembly should be torqued to a minimum of 120 ft-lbs. The handle/locking Pin of the gooseneck hitch should not be able to be released when tightened."

So based on this (from the manual I have linked for you below) you would have to loosen the nut for the post to be able to release the gooseneck pin holding the hitch in.
