Hey All, I recently picked up a hitch receiver extender, that allows for accessories such as a bike rack, to be inserted in an upper receiver, and the trailer to hook up to the lower. Seemed like a great idea, but it ran me into a couple issues that I still need to try and find ways to solve. 1) My existing safety chains are NOT long enough to still reach the hitch on my tow vehicle. Right now they are a continuous length of chain, that is bolted to the trailer tongue at mid-point. There are open hooks at each end that attach to my receiver on the truck. If I need to replace these with a longer length, is new chain my best option. I was hoping to find a solution that would not mean that I have a lot of extra length of chain to try and hang when NOT using the extender. I've seen cables for this too, are they a better or worse option? Or does using this start to create a situation where I will need to change chains back and forth depending on if I'm using the extender or not? Someone out there must have one of these, I'd like to hear how you made it work for you. 2) Related, but not exactly a topic for this specific forum section. I look to have interference between the tongue jack and any bikes on the rack. If you have any creative solutions, I wouldn't mind hearing those as well.
