    Pull the pin, then pull out the hitch. . . Just kidding. Try spraying it with liquid wrench at both ends of the square tubing i.e. where it slides in and on the back side. Strap to a tree and pull. Sounds like you have a lot of corrosion. Good luck.

    Pulling a properly strapped small trailer full of yard waste or mulch might be able to free up a rusty hitch receiver plus PB blaster or WD40

    Sounds alil less riskier then the strappin to a tree idea...my fuckin luck I'd rip the whole back axle off my jeep if I strap her to a tree ...and after laughing n swearing a whole lot I'd prally cry!! Someday when I can see my yard again I'll try that. Ty
