Questions from Ford F-150 owners about this product


  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Friction Sway Bar Sway Control Does Not Stop Trailer From Swaying
  • If the bar style friction sway control is not cutting the mustard then adding a second unit could be what you need. If the gross trailer weight is at or above 6,000 pounds or the sway is bad enough adding a second unit, # 83660, might be all you need. Friction sway control is not quite as effective as dual-cam sway control. To get dual-cam sway control I recommend a new system. If the tongue weight happens to be between 600 and 1200 pounds then I recommend # RP66074. This system...

  • Will Weight Distribution Help with Sag and Sway on a Trailer Towed by a 2012 Ford F-150
  • The best thing for vehicle sag caused by a trailer is to use weight distribution. I recommend removing the air from the air bags when using the weight distribution system you choose because otherwise the two systems can work against each other. To choose the best weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow and adding to that the weight of any cargo loaded behind the...

Questions from Ford F-150 owners about this product


  • Weight Distribution System for 2004 F150 Towing Jayco 27-Foot Trailer with 600-650 Lb Tongue Weight
  • The ideal choice of weight distribution system will be one where your loaded trailer tongue weight falls in the middle of the systems usable range. (A system that is too low in capacity will not provide the necessary stabilization; one rated too high will be stiff and result in erratic performance.) If your actual fully-loaded trailer tongue weight is approximately 650 pounds, then the Pro Series # PS49902 is a suitable choice. You should confirm the actual tongue weight of your trailer...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 7,000 Pound Aluminum Car Hauler Trailer
  • I am glad you mentioned that the tag states you can use weight distribution. With aluminum frame trailers people often have to call and ask if such a trailer can be used with weight distribution. But we can skip that and get to the next step. When calculating tongue weight for weight distribution you will also need to add the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Typically trailer tongue weight is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. On a 7,000 pound...

  • Yes, you can use the 1,000 pound sporing bars, # PS58441, with the same head that came with weight distribution system # PS49902. These spring bars are rated for 750 to 1,000 pounds tongue weight. If your total tongue weight does not fall within the 750 to 1,000 pound range then these spring bars will not be effective. I have included a link to a help article on determining tongue weight for you.

  • Does Using Weight Distribution Increase the Towing Capacity of a Vehicle or Trailer Hitch
  • Weight distribution systems do not increase the capacity of a trailer hitch or tow vehicle. On vehicles and hitches that are rated for weight distribution there will be two ratings: a weight carrying rating and a weight distribution rating. The hitch will have a sticker on it with the ratings, if applicable. And the vehicle owners manual should say whether or not the vehicle is rated for weight distribution and, if so, what the capacities are when using it. When choosing a weight distribution...

  • Will Using Weight Distribution Increase the Tongue Weight of a Trailer when Loaded
  • A weight distribution system will not change the tongue weight of the trailer. It just maximizes the vehicle and hitches capacities if rated for weight distribution (check the sticker on the hitch and the owners manual for your 2013 Ford F-150). The 10 to 15 percent of gross trailer weight when calculating tongue weight is more of a guide to figuring things out. It is not a hard and fast rule. You will know if the tongue weight is too little or too heavy. Too little tongue weight and...

  • Best Weight Distribution and Sway Control For a 5,940 lb.Travel Trailer on 2006 Ford F150 Super Crew
  • On the 2006 Ford F150 Super Crew 4X4 with tow package, one of the first things we recommend to do is always check the owners manual or car dealer for the GCVWR (Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating). Which is the maximum weight capacity of your truck, trailer, and contents combined. So you want to make sure to never exceed that figure.

  • You definitely want to go with the Reese Strait-Line part # RP66074 that has a 1200 pound tongue weight for your travel trailer since your tongue weight will be over 800 lbs. When towing, if your weight distribution system is not rated high enough, there will be too much force on your spring bar and the weight will not be distributed evenly which can create sway and an un-level ride.

Tongue weight for choosing weight distribution is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow and then adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle.

  • Is the Pro Series SC Weight Distrubution System Compatible with Reese SC Spring Bars
  • It sounds like you need to adjust the angle of the weight distribution head on the weight distribution shank. Angling the ball away from the vehicle will point the spring bar end down toward the ground farther before hookup and cause more pressure to be applied when the spring bars are on the spring bar platforms. Moving the hitch ball up will reduce the pressure on the spring bars and reduce the effectiveness of the weight distribution system. It sounds as if your ball height is correct...

  • Which Weight Distribution Hitch for a 2007 Ford F-150 Towing a 7,000 Pound 31 Foot Travel Trailer
  • With length of 31 feet I would highly suggest using a weight distribution system with a Dual-Cam sway control system.

Questions from Ford F-150 owners about this product


  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 7000 lb Horse Trailer Towed by a 2009 Ford F-150 STX
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, ideally the tongue weight of the trailer will fall right in the middle of the effective range of the system. It is important that you find the tongue of your trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow and that you also include the weight of any cargo loaded in the bed of your 2009 Ford F-150 STX behind the rear axle. Since a weight distribution system distributes the weight from the rear axle to all axles, the weight of additional cargo...

  • Weight Distribution for a 1999 Ford F-150 and 2012 Skyline Layton 186 Travel Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. If 325 pounds is the unloaded tongue weight then loaded at a weight of 3,200 pounds would put the tongue weight around 430 pounds. A system rated for 550 pounds such as # PS49901 would work well.

Questions from Ford F-150 owners about this product


  • Recommendation For Weight Distribution on Ford F-150 Towing a 7,500-Lb Horse Trailer
  • A weight distribution system transfers the load at the rear of the vehicle to all of the axles of the vehicle and the trailer. With the load distributed to all of the axles that will level off the vehicle and improve the performance and safety. On your Ford F-150 you will want to choose a weight distribution system that will have a tongue weight range that will be able to handle the trailers tongue weight. Tongue weight is 10 to 15 per cent of the gross trailer weight. On your 7,500-lb...

Questions from Ford F-150 owners about this product


  • Various Solutions When Having Trouble Unhooking or Uncoupling a Trailer from the Tow Vehicle
  • There are a couple of things you can do to make uncoupling the trailer easier, depending on what is causing the problem. If the spring bars on the weight distribution system, # RP66022, are too tight, you may need to go back and set up the system as if you are just installing it for the first time. I have included a link to the installation details below for reference. Another thing you can do to release tension from tight spring bars is to use the trailer jack to lift up on the trailer....

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for a 5800 Pound Trailer and 2013 Ford F-150 with Tow Package
  • When choosing a weight distribution system you will 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 truck. Tongue weight is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight so for a 5800 pound trailer the range would be 580 to 870 pound tongue weight (if the truck bed is empty). If you find that you will be inside of that range then a system rated for 600 to 1200 pounds tongue weight, #...
