How to Correctly Operate this Trailer Hitch
I just bought a Rinker Captiva 212 last summer. I've pulled a decent number of trailers in my time but I will admit that I've never really seen a hitch like this. Can someone please explain to me, from start to finish, what the correct procedure is to hook up, tow, back-up, and then un-hook this trailer? I can get it done but I usually have a heck of a time getting the coupler to stay open while I'm hooking up. Also I should mention that my understanding is that the lever that says "towing position" and "backup position" has to do with locking out the brakes when backing up which makes sense. But I haven't had to worry about it yet as I'm pretty sure my brakes are not working which is another issue I plan to work on in the near future.
