    Anyone ever have this problem before? Fifth wheel slider pin is supposed to go up and down but it came out a little bit too far apparently because now it's crooked and won't go back down into the 20220413_124221.jpg cylinder. Our road breakdown department has been called.

    Update:
    it turns out the fork that connects to the air diaphragm has a pin that is locked in with a cotter pin. The pot cotter pin apparently came out and the pin fell out and so when I unlocked the slider pin it came up too far. It was an easy fix after all.
