The TS was designed so that the bars do not have to be removed when backing up. However, when backing into a tight campsite that requires tight maneuvers, it may be necessary. The reason being, when backing a trailer into a particularly tight spot, we recommend using a spotter to assist in preventing the trailer from hitting the hitch head, also known as jackknifing. Continuing to crank on the wheel while in a jackknife situation, puts extreme pressure on the bars! Kind of like using a crowbar. That much force can cause pieces of the hitch to break, usually the trunnion. If someone does not have a spotter or chooses not to use one, then they may want to remove the bars.
