7. Coupler or mounting has loose or missing fastener

You must know that the condition of couplers and the mounting structure need to be inspected visually, and that a vehicle has this minor defect when any coupler or the mounting structure that supports a coupler has a fastener that is loose or missing.

Procedure:

    • Physically check and verbally describe the coupler assembly (for example, fifth wheel or pintle hook) and the related mounting fasteners.
    • Point and check for loose and missing fasteners.
    • Point out the fasteners to the examiner.
