I just recently installed an Equalizer Hitch w/4pt sway control to tow an enclosed car trailer behind my MH. First tow was about 1000 miles with no problems whatsoever. Strong crosswinds or tight maneuvering were not a problem. I haven't had to use the lifting tool at all to install or remove the WD bars. Using the jack stand to raise the hitch up fairly high seems to take most of the load off the WD bars so you can pretty easily slide them on or slide them off. Note: the jack stand by itself is not sufficiently long to raise the hitch high enough to take the load off the bars. Most people seem just put a few blocks of wood underneath the jack to give it the extra height. I bought a very handy device that seems to work very well. It is red plastic about 18 inches tall and kind of looks like a traffic cone. You just put it under the jack stand and crank it up. Its strong enough to handle quite a bit of tongue weight. I like it cause its very light and stores easily. Good luck with your hitch.
I threw the snap handle away years ago. Buy an electric tongue jack and use it to raise TT/TV up until you can put the bars on and off by hand.
