Thanks for the advice. I have a few similar options to WD40 and I had quite a hard time hooking it up this afternoon regardless of what and how much I sprayed on it. It's just a peculiar design concept and doesn't leave a lot of "wiggle room". I think part of my problem is that the trailer (where it's parked) is pointing slightly downhill (drainage away from the house front) while the tow vehicle is pointing uphill. Our driveway rises uphill about 35 degrees and the front of the trailer ends up being right at the transition, not at the full 35 degree mark but maybe 20 degrees at that point. Really makes it hard to connect the spring bars on the WD hitch also.
I plan on grading and paving a grass area along side of the house and putting up a metal carport eventually so it will probably get easier on level ground.
Also, in response to one of Michelle's questions, one other new item for the 2015 FF214WSD is a folding, glass stove top. It's really nice and allows the stove top to be used as counter space if needed.
We've just finished loading the trailer for a noon departure tomorrow heading up to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park area. We were supposed to leave Tuesday but forecast is for 100% chance of severe thunder storms so I didn't want to travel that day, nor set up camp in that weather so we have a window of decent conditions tomorrow afternoon and we're taking advantage of that. Thankfully, the campground is only 100 miles away
