curious if it's a WA state law to remove the trailer hitch from your vehicle while not towing a trailer. i came across a post on a different site where the poster said that was law in his state (not sure which state)
-------------- man, you go through life, you try to be nice to people, you struggle to resist the urge to punch 'em in the face, and for what?
I had someone from California harsh me out for not removing my trailer hitch prior to driving around. He said traffic laws in California required it. I said nothing to this person before or after he spoke to me.
Are you talking about removing the actual 2" ball from the receiver hitch? If so Ive never heard of such a thing. Most of my vehicles have receiver hitches, and I leave the 2" in the hitch most of the time.

I've heard of it in other states. I can't think of which and I wonder if it is actually enforced. I have one that sticks out a bit--I took it off for the winter to keep it from the elements.
I'm thinking other states have laws to keep idiots from running into a stuck out hitch. I had a guy in a shop truck bump mine at a gas station one time. People ought not to be parking that close, or following that close.

My wife was pulled over in Issaquah and told to remove the hitch ball. This was in an old Ford Ranger with the license plate and hitch ball both attached to the step bumper. The officer said it blocked the license plate from view (which it did). I removed the ball but it was attached 99.5% of the time for 30 years before anyone said it was an issue so you do the math and decide if it is worth the effort.
