I've seen them rusted in to where they were not coming out, period.
Park behind the stuck ball mount no more than 10 feet with a good winch. Hook the winch cable to the ball mount hole. (It is not safe to connect directly to the ball because the winch exceeds the rating of the ball.) Put some tension on the winch. Bang the ball mount right and left with a 4 lb sledge.
That same loose fit that made your hitch rattle all those years will provide just enough wiggle room to shear the rust loose. Just keep banging and pulling. You did pull the pin out first, right?
ditto. I never leave mine in when not in use but not because I am worried about theft (knock on wood).
