This coupling looks to be a good option to the dreadful coupling that came with the BT.

Has any member used it and able to compare with the original? I am keen to change to something better. Currently travelling and have had problems disconnecting every day.

Have a look at Site Link
BT apparently have made an addition to the hitch receiver to facilitate use of the WDH.
Vehicle Components should be able to help you if you don't wish to venture to Kunda Park.

Hey Firefly
addendum:
The AT-35 is certainly an acquired skill, but I have few difficulties these days. There are some good pointers on the BT Forum Site Link
The first thing I do after settling on the site, and before unhitching, is to go back and forward a little, to take out any tension resulting from twisting the wheels while manoeuvring. Then, before starting to unhitch, I chock the tyres firmly fore and aft. This, combined with Steve's advice on detecting the 'neutral position' up and down on the hitch, has made unhitching much easier. Some people bag him (fairly or unfairly), but there are certainly some excellent resources to be found.
I don't use a jockey wheel... I have had Vehicle Components fit one of their jacks on the A-frame- the best thing since sliced bread!
