What are these?

So I just purchased a 1994 Sunline with a Reese WD setup. The guy that I bought it from had these as a part of the hitch system but had no idea where they went. Can anyone recognize them? I thought maybe the D shaped things were lockers for the chain clamp but it seems like they could pop out easily.

"D" clip

The "D" clip goes to the snap-up bracket that attaches to the A-frame of your trailer.

See photo attached.

So that's what I thought but I figured they would be a little tighter so as to not slip out. Oh well. Thanks. So would the two pins be used to stop the top knuckle from sliding out on either side of the hitch?

Those two pins I'm not sure of. Someone will be able to answer that soon, I'm sure. I just happen to have that bracket here at work.

As Bunjin stated the, C clips are for the snap up brackets. I know this appear "wiggly" when no weight is on them, but they work well. When the weight is pulling on then, they do not wiggle and stay put.

The 2 pins, can you post a picture of the hitch? Reese made a lot of hitches over the years. They "might" be keeper pins from an older vintage round bar hitch to hold the bars into the head. Have to see the hitch to be sure.

Thanks for the help guys. Here are the pic's of the hitch. Sockets look pretty worn out huh. Think I can use that liquid metal stuff to build them back up?

I think the sockets look ok but they look like they haven't been greased.

The ball looks like it has a bit of rust and hasn't been greased either.
