How do I get rust off my hitch receiver?

If you have a chrome ball or chrome hitch that's showing signs of rust, simply ball up a piece of aluminum foil, dip it in white distilled vinegar or Coca-Cola and lightly rub the rusty spots. Rinse with warm water and dry with a soft, clean rag. Follow up by polishing with two coats of carnuba car wax.

Why is my hitch rusting?

Trailer hitches rust for a number of reasons. First, in northern climates, they're exposed to road salt and in the back of the vehicle tend to accumulate more salt containing slush. Second, hitches are low enough on the vehicle that they're more prone to chipping due to road debris and gravel.

Is a rusted hitch safe?

While a small amount of rust may not compromise the utility of your hitch, sometimes rust can hide signs of deeper structural damage to your hitch. It is better to err on the side of safety and explore a new hitch if you notice any significant signs of rust.
