It should be an easy job but if you're unsure how to do this check with a local hitch installer. It may not be required to have the WD on your application but if you have it & it can be set up correctly to your truck you may as well use it.

Hi Wendy. You have a big heavy SUV but you still need to get it all set up appropriately. Highly recommend you get an appointment with a reputable RV hitch shop and get then to set it all up. In the long run it will be worth it and you won't have any worries that something is not right.

PS... Does your trailer have brakes? Hope so. You will need to get a brake controller installed and set up.

Steve V., that's exactly what the seller tried to do for my bigger TV, but the bolts were too tight.

Wayne MC1, yes, that's what I need to do to feel confident about the rig. I do have brakes (standard with the Casita), and I bought a P3 controller that I had installed, but I don't know how to operate it in an emergency. I can feel that it's working under normal conditions, though. I'll read the copious and confusing instructions, eventually.

If you have a local mechanical garage/shop they should be able to use an air impact wrench to break the bolts loose. An adjustable wrench & rubber mallet won't do the job.
