Simple trailer improvement

On the tongue extender I had a stop welded on.



When I want to connect my trailer to my hitch I remove the pins, and extend the tongue about 6 ft.
Then back my car within a foot or two. With the tongue extended it is easy to lift vertically, move left & right and in and out
because of the additional leverage.. Attach the hitch to the ball. Use trailer jack to get the extender roughly in line with the
sleeve..

Have the wheels blocked. Then, I slowly back the car/truck till you hit the stop. The pins will now line up perfectly.

Makes attaching the trailer very easy.
