Loose trailer hitches/recievers My new raft trailer bangs very loudly when towing and braking on paved roads, let alone gravel roads. I have tried several remedies (different stinger, rubber gasket, even modifying it by welding) but none of these has fixed the problem to my liking. I am now considering running a bolt through both receiver hitch and stinger in an attempt to eliminate or hopefully reduce the banging. Has anyone ever experienced this situation? Would there be any reason not to want to do this? Is a little "slop" necessary?
