Pro Series Weight Distribution diagram

Create a stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight-distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.



Selecting a Weight-Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight-distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight-distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system.



Unique Features of Pro Series Round-Bar Weight Distribution

Pro Series Weight Distribution adjustable head from top and side

To adjust your weight-distribution head assembly to the correct angle, insert the included rivet and up to 8 washers into a 1/2-inch hole in the "U" on your head assembly. Use the smallest number of washers necessary to achieve the correct downward angle for the spring bars. Each washer lowers the chain ends of your spring bars by approximately 1-1/2 inches. Once the correct angle is reached, use the included bolts, serrated washers and nuts to lock the unit into place.


Pro Series Weight Distribution round spring bar locking devices

The round spring bars of this system slide up into the weight-distribution head and are secured with built-in, spring-bar locking devices for quick, easy installation. With a tapered design and forged steel construction, these bars flex to ensure a smooth, controlled ride for both your tow vehicle and your trailer.


Friction Sway Control

Pro Series Weight Distribution friction sway control installation on trailer framePro Series Weight Distribution friction sway control installation on hitch head

The integrated friction-style sway control of the Pro Series system reduces trailer sway caused by winds, winding roads and sudden maneuvers. As soon as your trailer begins to move out of line, the friction pads inside the unit touch one another and create resistance to help prevent further side-to-side movement. To install, simply bolt the sway-control ball plate to the A-frame of your trailer and attach the other end to the included ball, which mounts on the head of your weight-distribution hitch - drilling required. The ball plate mounts to the side of the trailer frame so it will not interfere with gas tanks, toolboxes or generators.

Pro Series Weight Distribution System Installation

Video Transcript for Pro Series Weight Distribution System Installation

Today in this trailer, we are going to install part number PS49903. First step is to go ahead and get our truck and trailer in straight line, then well disconnect the truck and trailer and then well go ahead and level off the trailer then we can start work on the weight distribution and our measurement from the top cup down to the ground is going to be 20 inches. Well write that down and then we will go on to the truck. At the top of the fender well at the rear axle is going to be 37-1/4 inches and at the front axle to the top of the wheel well will be 34-7/8. Ideally, we want the front to stay the same and maybe have the back settle about an inch at the most. Now this obviously will vary from truck to truck and from truck and trailer combinations.

To start off our install well go ahead and install the shank into the hitch. Well install pin and clip to secure it. First, well mark off our height that we need to set the ball at and account for vehicle squat we are going actually raise the ball up one inch. Then well install the head assembly with the ball already installed onto the shank and well match it up to that mark as close as possible. On the inside of the head, theres a pin that we had to add some washers to that will provide tilt for the head assembly to go back towards the trailer and apply pressure on the spring bars.

Now this will vary from trailer to trailer and vehicle to vehicle. We are going to start off with four washers. Well go ahead, and bolt the head assembly to the shank and then loosely install all the hardware. Now well tighten up the bolt at the bottom that way to help bring the top of the head of the assembly up snag against the shank and provide the proper angle we need. Then we go ahead and tighten down the bolts that go through the shank and the head assembly.

Well tightened them and torque those down as specified in the instructions. With our trailer back on the hitch, ball well go ahead and raise the truck and trailer back up and then we can go ahead, and install one of the spring bars and then line up the chain bracket. To install the spring bar we will go ahead and slide it up from the bottom, make sure it clicks in the place and then well take our chain thats already been installed in the spring bar and pull it up vertical in a straight line and then align our bracket with it. Once we have the bracket and alignment in chain well go ahead and tighten down the snap up screw on the backside. Well do that on both sides.

At this point, well go ahead and attach our spring bars to the snap up brackets we just installed. Well go ahead and lower the yoke on the snap up bracket until its parallel with the ground and slipped the closest link over to the hook and when we do this we want to keep at least five links between the hook and the u-bolt and then well go ahead and check to see how the spring bars are properly aligned with the frame. Now you want your spring bars pointing slightly down or level with the frame. As you pointing up again well have to take the head assembly apart, add some more washers and tilt the head assembly down then reassemble. Once we have, the chains hooked up well go ahead, and lower our truck and trailer and check our alignment with the spring bars with the frame. With every thing hooked up, well go ahead and check measurements again like we did at the beginning. It looks like the front axle stayed about the same and the back axle settled about one inch which is about right. So that all looks good now well go ahead and move on to the installation of the anti-sway control. Now we took the sway ball and mounted it up to the side of the frame temporarily. So, well go ahead, and measure up and make sure they stay at the correct spot. We are going to measure from the center of the hitch ball to the center of our sway control ball it does come out to the right measurements, 24 inches. However, two of the boltholes going towards the back trailer do not line up properly. Once you are going to reinstall the old sway ball in its place. However, when you install the old anti-sway ball we will sue new hardware. Well take the self-tapping bolts and the star washers, attach them and then reinstall them into the trailer frame. All right now go ahead and add on the anti-sway bar. Well apply a little of grease to the mounting points. Well go ahead, and add the sway bar on top and install the safety pins and after that all we need to do is go ahead and take it to the test drive, make sure everything works properly and if the sway control doesnt get into a bind on sharp turns. That will finish it for our install part number PS49903.

The product was of high quality and cheaper than i could find in local stores. The free shipping on this item due to price made the choice a no brainer. All items shipped complete with instructions and on time as promised. The tracking information was very helpful and precise. I will be happy to order other products from e-trailer in the future. 78874





Comments

After a year of use the product is still functioning as if new. I use the complete system with the anti sway when pulling my 25 toy hauler full of water, gas, and my ranger. I couldnt be happier with the product. With the instructions I was able to set up the system correctly the first time without having to make any more adjustments.

I did extensive research on the product before buying; got, by far, the best price from etrailer and with free shipping, it was a no-brainier. Shipping was lightning fast, delivered right to my door with everything in perfect condition. This is my fifth time buying products from etrailer and I have been 100% satisfied every time. You definitely can shop with them with confidence; I highly recommend them and simply will not shop anywhere else for my towing needs. The Pro Series set-up is perfect for towing my 5000 lbs travel trailer with my 2009 Chevy Tahoe; it creates a safe even tow that you can immediately feel especially on the interstate at higher speeds. Set up took a little while but the online video gives easy step by step instructions that guide you through the process. The product is very rugged and has top notch quality comparable to other models at double the price. Awesome product, great price, fast shipping, excellent customer service; simply a perfect transaction. Thank you, etrailer! 93171

I ordered this product based on the ratings primarily. I had planned to be at my in-laws two hours away from home for a few day, happened to be the same town that I purchased my new camp trailer in. I ordered the hitch and chose to have it shipped there, thinking I would intercept it, install it, and pull my new trailer home with it. Turns out delivery took longer than I anticipated (not longer than etrailer quoted so my own fault). I was able to call customer service, and have them re-route the delivery to my home. Way to go ETrailer!! Installation was a bit tough at first trying to go off of the dismal directions provided by the manufacturer. I jumped on etrailer.com and found a video on installation of this exact hitch. It was just what I needed, and installation was a snap after that. Excellent product, very robust, and I was surprised at how much difference the hitch made in the squat of my 1/2 GMC pickup. I definitely needed this hitch for safe towing of my 22' 4400lb camper. 136148

We originally drove our new trailer home using just a regular ball and hitch. My husband drove the trailer home I followed in our car. Oh my that was a scary sight to watch. It was far from level. In fact it was more of a V shape between the two. Because this is our first travel trailer, we had never heard of a weight distribution system. We scoped out websites and watched many YouTube videos. We both agreed the Pro Series WDS with FSC was the ticket. It also was much more affordable that some we looked at. We read the instruction but what was more beneficial was the videos from etrailer.com Wow what a difference in the ride. Its interesting to watch other TT go down the road, some are not properly installed. Darn. If we ever get the chance to talk to others we will recommend the etrailer.com and for them to watch the video. GREAT PRODUCT GREAT PRICE!!! Way-to-go guys you did a great job! 95706

I ordered this product with free shipping. About a week later it was on my front porch. Everything was in the box with ok instructions. I was replacing another similar unit and knew how to assemble it, but the instructions are not clear on how to properly adjust the sway control. I did a shake down drive, made a few adjustment and left on a thee month trip with my 30' travel trailer. I have now traveled about four hundred miles with the new Weight Distribution System and it is much superior to my older system. The only reason I do not rate it EXCELLENT, is the poor assembly and adjusting brochure that came with the unit. Watch the online video on assembly which is more informative. Would I buy from etrailer again, YES I would. The product was everything they said it would be. 88281

Great hitch for the money. I pull a 6500 pound travel trailer with a Yukon Denali and it tows beautiful even with out the sway control. Using the provided instructions I was able to get everything set up properly in about an hour and two tries of hooking everything up before I finally torqued everything. I wish the snap up brackets had a little more hook on them to hold the chains in place while snapping them up, sometimes they fall off when prying up on them. Another complaint was that the sway control plate that mounted to my trailer was missing, but chances are this won't happen to you. I contacted E-trailer and that same day the part was shipped to me at no cost. E-trailer is great I have only positive things to say about them. 50009

Customer Service when ordering was very helpful and knowledgeable of the product. Delivery was fast and arrived in good condition with all parts. Installation was easy for the most part with the exception of the torque requirements and the proper tilting of the head. I took me approximately one hour and fifteen minutes to install and level. The test ride was great with no more bouncing and bucking. This was installed on a Chevy Silverardo 2006 long bed and a 2013 26foot Skycat. I would buy from and recommend e trailer.com.

My package arrived as scheduled and ,boy, was I surprised when I bent over to pick it up...Believe me, this baby is WELL MADE! The step-by-step instructions are easy to follow, but you should set aside about an hour to an hour and a half to complete the installation. I have not had a chance to evaluate the hitch on the highway yet, but do not expect any surprises or disappointments. This product appears to be WELL WORTH the bargain price. I highly recommend it to anyone who is about to tow. 137556

After checking and finding that local RV dealers were selling this WD hitch from $470 to $500 and finding the same hitch on etrailer for less with sway control and free shipping I couldn't go wrong ordering it. Great customer service and the hitch is extremely well built and sturdy. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a quality weight distribution hitch at a great price and from great online service provider. I will be doing future business with etrialer.com for sure. 114515

First off 2 thumbs up for customer service. I called and received excellent advice helping me choose the right wdh. Just used for the first time this past weekend. It made a big difference in stability and sway control. I pull a 26 foot travel trailer with my 2013 F150 supercrew. Before it was quite bouncy, but the wdh really does a great job. Took about 45 minutes to setup. Instructions are pretty good and I found a video on youtube for this specific model. Highly recommend etrailer.com. 131437

Couldn't believe the customer service from etrailer, got my hitch 2 days after I ordered and the quality of the equalizer hitch is top quality also. pulled my car trailer to the track and it pulled like a dream , no more bouncing up and down any more. Well worth the money which I might add is half the price of any local dealer around here. Directions of installation kind of sucked but the video they have was excellent. Great Product . Going to order air bags system this winter. 52193

I just installed the weight distribution hitch last night. It seems well made and of excellent quality; however, the installation instructions were poorly written at best. I had to back up and start over a couple of times. And that's after reading the instructions at least twice and watching a "not too well done" utube video. Overall I would recommend this hitch to anyone that has a little mechanical ability and good skills for reading between the lines. 79375

I purchased this WDH and installed it myself because the dealer wanted $250 (quoted two hours). I had to drive a few hours to the dealer and install the WDH on the lot myself. After studying up on the great install video from etrailer and instruction guide, it took me no more than 45 mins tops to install! Etrailer shipped it fast and had zero problems. Been purchasing things from them for a few years now. Highly recommended. 56703

I debated between the equalizer and this hitch. I went with this because the price was less than half the price of the equalizer. I was extremely happy with the purchase. It is complete kit, seems very durable, and it has performed flawlessly on my first few tows. The only con if any is the hitch assembly is heavy. E-Trailer has the best prices, great customer service, and order to delivery was 4 days, cant beat that. 110027

Great product.. super fast service. I will be traveling cross country towing my travel trailer. I may not need the extra control, but I would rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. Easy installation, clear instruction. Thanks etrailer. 118005

The hitch kit, I ordered, was easy to install and very well built. I would recommend trailer hitches and parts from etrailer.com to anybody. The shipping was a little high but I did get the order in two business days, so I can't complain too much. 65437

  • Choosing Weight Distribution System for 10,000 lb Capacity Deck Over Trailer Towed By Ford F150
  • The first step in choosing the correct weight distribution (W/D) system is to determine the actual as-towed tongue weight of your trailer. Anything stowed in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle should be included as tongue weight. For best performance, the tongue weight of the trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the system you choose. The Pro Series Weight Distribution System you mention is designed to operate most effectively with tongue...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 2012 Ford F-150 Supercrew and Jayco Jay Flight
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, you need to go by the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. If you have the trailer at the max of 10,500 pounds and tongue weight is 1,050 to 1,575 (10 to 15 percent of gross trailer weight), that will tell you what weight range you will need in a weight distribution system. The 750 to 1,000 pound system that you referenced would not have a high...

  • Minimum Trailer Tongue Length to Install a Weight Distribution System
  • In order to install a Weight Distribution System, the distance from the center of the ball to the end of the bracket requires a minimum of 33". In some cases, tongue modification or relocation of items such as LP tanks or Batteries, etc. may need to be done to install the system. If you are not able to move any of the accessories on the tongue of your trailer to install the chain hangers, then you could use the bolt on chain hangers, # RP58305.

  • Which Direction Do Conical Washers Face When Installing W/D Head to Shank on # PS49903
  • If you are speaking of the conical washers used on the top bolt that holds the weight distribution head to the shank, as shown in the diagram I edited for you, the concave or dished portion of the washer will face inward toward the weight distribution head and away from the bolt head or nut, so that the washer will compress as its tightened.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 22 Ft Hi-Lo Trailer Towed by a 1997 Ford F-150
  • The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is the limit that the overall weight of your trailer, including a full load, should not exceed. As a general rule the tongue weight of your trailer is going to be about 10 to 15 percent of your gross trailer weight. It is important that you know the gross trailer weight and tongue weight of your trailer before choosing a weight distribution system. You will want a weight distribution system that is rated higher than the dry tongue weight of your...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 200 Ford F-150 and 8,000 Pound Travel Trailer
  • The type of weight distribution that has brackets mounted on the frame and does not use chains is what is called a friction system because it uses friction style sway control. A chain system would use dual-cam sway control. The systems are just different designs like you have said. When choosing a system you want one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses the total tongue weight of the trailer, loaded and ready to tow, plus the weight of anything loaded behind the...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2005 GMC Yukon Denali Towing a Jay Feather Ultra Lite Trailer
  • Ultimately you want the fully loaded tongue weight of your 5,000lb Jayco Jay Feather Ultra lite camper to fall within the tongue weight capacities of the weight distribution system you select. Remember that any cargo you load behind the rear axle of the Denali needs to be added to the trailer tongue weight, so you should leave room for that weight also when selecting a weight distribution system. I would recommend going with the one of two systems for use with your trailer and your Denali....

  • Weight Distribution, Transmission Cooler and Brake Controller for 2006 Dodge Durango

I have done some research on that vehicle, and saw several references that state that the Durango, regardless of the engine it has, can only tow 2000 lbs unless it is equipped with the trailer towing group. Check with your owners manual or or your Dodge dealer for more information. You will then need to determine the as-towed, fully loaded tongue weight of your trailer. I will provide an article that...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 and 6,800 Pound Trailer
  • When calculating tongue weight to determine the best weight distribution system, you also have to add in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. That could increase the tongue weight total beyond the 705 pounds of the trailer. I reocmmend a system rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight. For a system that comes with sway control and a shank, I recommend a Strait-line system, # RP66084. This system comes with dual-cam sway control that proactively and...

  • Reese Dual Cam vs Equal-i-zer for Ford F150 Towing 30 Foot Travel Trailer

This system will accommodate the gross towing weight of up to 12,000 pounds and tongue weight of 600 - 1200 pounds, which will cover towing your travel trailer. It uses a unique straight line weight distribution system that is easy to use. Another advantage to this system is the use of dual-cam sway control using a trunnion bar...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Chucking, Jerking, and Tugging on Light Utility Trailer Carrying Two ATVs

First, consult your vehicles owners manual for the towing capacities and recommendations, and to make sure you are not exceeding those capacities. Next, there is a formula you can use to determine the best place for your axles. If your tongue weight is less than 10 percent of the gross trailer weight you will first determine what 10 percent of the tongue weight is. 180 pounds is what you will need. Subtract the actual...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a Starcraft Centennial Trailer and 2007 Honda Odyssey

This system is probably too heavy for your pop up trailer and you will experience a stiff ride. From the research I did, the camper will have a tongue weight of around 375 pounds. You then need to add to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the van to get the total tongue weight. I recommend a system that is rated for 200 to 600...

  • 6000 lb Travel Trailer Towed By 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 is Still Swaying Using Friction Sway Control
  • As a first step, you can check the tension control on the friction sway unit. If it is not already adjusted to maximum, try increasing the tension to see if that helps the situation improve. Increasing the tongue weight of the trailer is usually the best way to combat trailer sway. If possible, redistribute some of the gear in your travel trailer so that it is as far forward of the axles as possible. Keep in mind that increasing the amount of tongue weight might require you to readjust...

  • Using Pro Series Weight Distribution System, Part # PS49903, On a 16-Foot Livestock Trailer

I suggest you refer to your owners manual to confirm the towing specifications for your Silverado.
