Just picked up our 2011 Gulf Stream Visa 19RGU on June 26, 2018. Anxious to get started. Some minor fixes and repairs needed. First will be inspection and installation of 7 pin wiring harness and electronic brake controller on our tow vehicle. We left to visit our son about an hour after I towed the trailer home.

When I hitched the vehicle to tow it home, only about 5 miles, I noticed that the hatch on the hitch was extremely difficult to close because it was rusty and creaky. Does anyone have any experience rebuilding the coupler latch? I noticed several repair kits etrailer.com. Need to research more.

Can’t wait to get started.

I have the same model of Gulfstream and the same latch on my utility tlr. Keep it very clean and well lubed. A good coating of grease in the off season helps. This latch is also balky if there is any pressure on the ball.
