Hi John...you point out some interesting things. One being to use a thicker block under my tongue jack to allow for additional height to unload the WD bars. I normally just toss a piece of 2 x 8 under it and raise it up to what seems like high enough. Then you noted your often able to snap up by hand...WOW...
....I would never have imagined that...! ! ! At the very least I put some muscle into the process never really thinking that some additional height could make such a difference...live and learn again. So angular hitching is standard stuff for you...and I appreciate having you confirm this for me before I go get myself into a jam...like my last jam...phew.
Thanks for always being such a great and willing guide to a trailering newbie like me.
Best to you.
