    We have a new to us 2001 Rockwood. We want to keep it in the garage and we have to hand push it in(steep driveway) but our hitch roller wheel sticks and won't turn. Any suggestions out there? We've tried lubing it up, no luck!

    Is it rusted, dirty? Have you taken it apart to clean and lube it?

    If you can't clean and lube it well enough to allow it to turn freely you may just want to replace it.

    yes, try the trailer dolly - our hitch wheel has never been used.

    Thanks everone I think we got it fixed today by taking it apart, but the trailer dolly sounds like a great idea!
