I've read about paint flaking on trailer hitches for this generation of Tundra. Now mine is rusting and the paint flaking off.

Warranty issue? How to prevent? Stop?

I'll check in with my dealer to see if it's covered under paint. Ive never towed with this Tundra.

That's a tough call on warranty. Hitches will rust from use, just not right in that spot. Very unusual to flake off like that.

Can you get a closer pic? That might be easy to touch up if it's just the lower part of the receiver, down where the chains hook up.

Come to think of it, I actually tried to pull out a stump with a chain wrapped around this, so it might have been me actually.
