Video Transcript for Curt Weight Distribution 17312 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Curt weight distribution head angle adjustment kit. This hardware replaces the hardware that came with your Curt weight distribution system. It's made from durable steel and it features protective finishing to keep it safe from rust and corrosion. It installs between the head assembly in the adjustment shank of your weight distribution system, and allows you to get the proper head tilt that you need for your towing setup. It comes with a short adjustment rod, a long adjustment rod, and two flat washers. It also comes with tilt instructions.

As you can see here, it shows you exactly what to use to get certain tilts that you need.For instance, with the short adjustment rod, you can use just that rod and it provides a drop distance of 8.8 inches, and then it goes down to short rod and a washer, short rod and two washers, and then long rod, long rod and one washer, long one and then two washers, and it gives the measurement of the amount of drop that it provides or the amount of tilt that it provides for your system. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt weight distribution head angle adjustment kit.

  • Replacement Head Tilt Adjustment Rods for Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution Hitch
    We do have what you need, as the only TruTrack that comes with the adjustment rods is the 15,000 lb/1,500 lb tongue weight Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System with Sway Control # C17501. To get the adjustment rods for this system you will need something different than what you mentioned; it will require the Replacement Hardware Kit for Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System # C17554. This comes with the adjustment rods as well as other hardware for the 15,000 lb system.

  • Spring Bar Tension is Higher on One Side of Trailer than Other Side with Curt Weight Distribution
    The tension on the spring bars fore any weight distribution system should be nearly identical (when sitting still on level ground with the trailer in a straight line behind the truck). The little bit of play making the shank off-level at the hitch is going to translate to anything else connected down the line to be off even more so that could have something to do with it. Curt does not specify a maximum or minimum amount of washers but if you are angling the head down to get the trailer...
