    Newbie question..Turning point pin box and B+W 3500 reverse ball hitching point

    Was reading that the GD 260 turning point pin box will not work in the unlock position on a B+W companion 3500 single point reverse ball mount system as the writer said it puts too much stress the hitch single mounting point. Claimed Id was okay as long as pin box was locked.
    Has anyone heard this to be true?
    Thanks

    I would call the hitch manufacturer directly next week and ask them. I believe that hitch is rated for 20k pounds, seems reasonable it could handle the stress of the Turning Point. I know PullRite recommends using the next hitch up because of the Turning Point torsional loads which is why I have the larger hitch myself.
