Hitch Alignment

Hitching your 5th Wheel made easy –

This idea comes from the magnetic rods sold by Camping World to align and connect your tongue pull trailer to your trailer hitch. Quite a bit cheaper than those rods, just let two pieces of white electrical tape do the job.

First place a piece of white electrical tape centered on your truck 5th wheel hitch. Then take another piece of white electrical tape and center it on your 5th wheel hitch. And now your ready!

Raise/lower your 5th wheel landing gear to the appropriate height for your truck hitch. Roughly center your truck on your 5th wheel and prepare to back up. Now, only using your mirror, align the two pieces of white electrical tape while you back up. You’ll be amazed how easy you’ll back right in and hook up your 5th wheel.
