Default Receiver is rusted in hitch am I SOL?

I just realized this the other day. I have tried attaching a tow line to it and yanking it out...resulted in snapping the line. I have tried spraying it with WD40 and other anti rust agents.

My next stop is to try backing it into a wall. Lol

Anybody have any suggestions?

I've found WD40 etc. can take time to work. Spray again today, and again tomorrow. MAYBE it'll work loose. Also try banging on it (in different directions) with a BFH (big freaking hammer).

PB Blaster and a big hammer smacking it sideways and up/down.
(Not in)
You only need to break it loose a teeny tiny bit then it should come out.

Kroil, heat, hammer. If that won't get it out sell the truck and buy a new one.
