TST for me. For years. I don't like the flow-through one's though. They're too slow. Too restricted, while filling with a pump. I returned my original ones and got the non flow-through 507. I only...

I'm on my second one

I've used one non-stop since starting with my then-new 3400RL. I'm now on my second one, with my second trailer. I will NEVER go back to the old-school pig steel hitches of yesteryear. I should post...
