Got home today & this is what happened to my Reese Dual Cam. Both pieces are supposed to be straight. Ouch.

Is your trunion collar which mounts in the hitch head hitting the trailer A frame?

Not a clue. Hitched up the same as usual & had no events along the way. I'm at a loss & I'm wondering what to go with as a replacement set up.

I can't figure it out, the cam bent up which makes no sense. If it was bent sideways I'd think it hit the "A" frame but I can't wrap my head around what would cause it to bend up.

I would call Reese and talk to them about it. Their hitches and dual cam setups have a lifetime warranty. I am sure that they can help you through tech support. No way that this should have happened under normal conditions.

I had something similar happen to only one side. I just bought replacement dual cam parts so I have one spare now. It is worth contacting Reese as well to help understand how that could happen.
