Anderson Hitch Cone
« on: October 30, 2019, 02:09:03 PM »
Just a thought that owners with an Anderson hitch should change out the cone every few years. I always have an extra cone with us and had to change it out the other day. I should have done it before our winter getaway but forgot to do it. You will notice that it will start to make noise while turning and then it will start to limit the friction action. Ours just eventually stuck and would not let the triangular plate rotate. Any Anderson dealer should provide cones at no charge.

Cheers,

Merlin

Excellent points. You can get them sent for free from Andersen with just an email to their customer service. Iíve changed mine once and I have 2 new ones sitting in the garage. Itís easy to change, but only if you have fairly large snap ring pliers to take it off. Donít try to remove the hitch ball without removing the snap ring. (Duh). Donít ask me how I know that.
