Trailer coupler question
I replaced the trailer coupler and discovered that with the new one the mounting holes match up fine but instead of being "flush" with the tongue, it sits up about 1/4 ". If I put it flush, the holes don't match up and I am fearful that drilling new holes 1/4" away from the old holes wont be a good idea. I was thinking of drilling the top hole out and inserting a 1/4" aluminum plate in the gap and bolting it from the top as well. I may be over thinking this as it is only a 16 foot skiff on a single axle trailer, but I would rather be safe than sorry. Should I drill and mount thru the top hole or do you think I would be okay as is?
