Term Definition
Receiver-Hitch

 The receiver must be installed correctly on the hitch assembly during towing. The receiver hitch can be removed when not towing trailers.

This piece of the hitch assembly is removable. It is the piece of the hitch assembly that has the ball attached, and can be removed from the rear of the vehicle to prevent banging your shins. When inserting the receiver, it is important to have the locking cotter pin on the pin to ensure that the receiver does not come loose during towing.
