This article will guide you on how to do the RV Trailer Hitch Installations Step by Step. The preliminary steps to install a trailer hitch are to reconnect the battery, which I usually disconnect when I do not use the trailer for more than a week, so it does not drain. Another preliminary step is to disconnect the hitch lock that I set up to avoid the travel trailer from being detached and stolen. Likewise, you have to elevate the trailer tongue or trailer nose to position the trailer hitch ball right underneath the coupler.

You should not perform the attachment of the breakaway cable wrapped around the trailer hitch ball, as some people recommend. It exists a possibility that the whole ball hitch assembly detaches outside the trailer hitch, an infrequent possibility, anyway.

Therefore, it is advisable to loop this breakaway cable through the receiver safety loop. After this attachment, the safety chain clips can strengthen it with security.   As aforementioned, some people recommend wrapping this breakaway cable around the ball of the trailer hitch. They claim that it is the only safe place to secure it, but not necessarily the recommended approach.
