Video Transcript for Curt Weight Distribution C45822 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Curt Weld-On Sway Control Tab. This tab is designed for adding a mounting plate for your sway control ball. It's going to be made from a steel construction, featuring a nice black powder coating finish on it to help it resist rust and corrosion. It does have an area on this side where the steel is exposed, this is for welding, so it is designed to get welded on to the side of your ball mount or weight distribution head assembly. Welding should be done, or performed by a qualified professional welder. Taking a few measurements of the sway control tab, starting with the overall length, it's going to give us a length measurement of 5 inches. The width measurement is going to be right at 2 inches.

The thickness of the tab, that's going to measure about 3/8ths of an inch in thickness. The hole on the unit is going to give us a diameter of 5/8ths of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt Weld-On Sway Control Tab.

Weld-On Sway Control Tab - C45822

This sway control package is just what we needed! After towing our 3300 lb camper home with my wifes Jeep Cherokee, WITHOUT an anti-sway bar, I said I wasn't towing the camper anywhere until we had this installed. We drove in 20-30 mph crosswinds the entire 4+ hour drive back. With this installed, we hardly notice it. Now, you can't get rid of the wind itself, but you certainly don't have to worry about the trailer starting to move around on it's own - this is great for stabilizing everything. Easy to install - just used the template they include with it, and then just drilled some holes through the frame of the camper and installed the hitch, hooked up and we were ready to go. We only use Curt products for our vehicles, utility trailer, and camper - nothing compares in my opinion. 625419

Had professional welder weld Sway bar tab to hitch for $20. Used for towing 23 foot rv trailer. Great solution for when you need a sway bar and you can’t get a pre made Hitch with sway bar tab 595256

Product is well built. I needed an antisway tab on the opposite side from the product pictured online, so I called and asked whether etrailer had a separate tab that I could weld where I needed it. Etrailer had it and the two items arrived very quickly by mail. I now have the ball height I wanted and a good short distance from ball to bumper--and the antisway tab ball mount. The setup should be just right for towing my 16' Casita with the Chevy Trail Blazer. 579273

  • Recommendation for Adding 2nd Friction Sway Control Bar to Trailer
  • To add a second friction sway control, you will need the second Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 and you'll need to weld a tab onto your trailer hitch ball platform like # C45822. The friction bar will simply be inverted on the left side, but that will not impact the function and is designed for use on either side. I've attached an article to assist and 2 bars are recommended on trailers over 26 feet long or if you simply want more sway control. The other option is to use...

  • Curt Sway Tab Weld On Position For Ball Mount and Friction Sway Control # 83660
  • You will want to mount the tab # C45822 to work with the sway bar you are using. I recommend following the Pro Series instructions of # 83660 for best function since that is the friction sway bar you are utilizing. I've also included the diagram to help with the location of the tab for both width and depth so you will also want to ensure it is 5-1/2 inches on center from ball to ball.

  • Short Arm Weight Distribution System Needed for 10,000 lb Trailer Towed by a 2005 Ford F-250/F-350
  • I do have a solution to help with the sag in your tow vehicle as well as with sway control for your enclosed car hauler, but unfortunately 28-1/2" arms on a Weight Distribution (WD) system is the shortest that we have to offer. Most people like to use a sway control like the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 which can be used without a WD system. You will just need a way to mount the small hitch ball. You can use the Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 if you have a 2" receiver...

  • Adding a Mounting Plate for a Second Friction Sway Control Ball On a Ball Mount
  • You will need to use the weld-on friction sway control tab # C45822 or # 3442. It will get welded to the side of the ball mount. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. Once welded on it will look like ball mount # D320 except the tab will be welded to the other side (since the plate you are using is occupying the passenger side of the ball mount).

  • Friction Sway Control Mounting Tabs for 2-Inch Ball Mounts
  • We do offer a 2-inch ball mount that has a friction anti-sway mounting tab already welded in place, Curt # D320, but this ball mount offers 2-inches of drop, not 4-inches. We do offer a 2-inch no-welding Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 that fits on your ball mount in addition to the simple weld-on tabs # C45822 and # 3442.

  • How To Minimize Trailer Sway While Towing
  • It sounds to me like you are experiencing trailer sway. Although the Timbren springs are an excellent suspension enhancement option, they are not the best option to eliminate trailer sway or stability, but they will help increase the stability of your truck while under load. The Timbren springs are a great addition when experiencing vehicle sag however, for trailer sway and stability, I recommend using a sway control bar such as the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit part # 83660....

  • How Does a Second Friction Sway Control Unit Get Installed on a Trailer
  • You are correct, adding a second sway control bar, like the Curt Friction Style Sway Control, # 17200, is recommended for trailers over 26 feet long. You will need to use the weld-on friction sway control tab # C45822 or # 3442. It will get welded to the side of the ball mount. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder.

  • Using 2 Friction Sway Control Bars on a Reese System Weight Distribution System with Only 1 Hole
  • It sounds like your Reese weight distribution head is similar to # RP58167. Pretty much the only thing you could do to avoid getting a whole new system is to have a sway control tab welded to the head of your system. For a tab you could use # 3442 or # C45822. Welding would have to be performed by a qualified professional welder and it would void any warranty on the weight distribution system.

  • Fit and Compatibility of Reese Sway Control Ball Mount Bracket on Curt Ball Mounts
  • The Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003 will fit the Class IV ball mount # C45338. For the Class V ball mount you would want the weld-on sway control tab # C45822. I have linked all the above mentioned products to this page for your convenience.

  • Adding a Mount for the Small Ball of a Friction Sway Control System to a Ball Mount
  • All you will need is a sway control tab, # 3442, that you can have welded to the other side of the mount you are using. Welding should be done by a qualified professional welder. We also have # C45822 which is the same thing only a different brand.

  • Can Second Friction Sway Control be Used on Trailer Setup and Will It Help
  • Adding a second friction sway control device can help. Typically what we recommend is if the trailer is longer than 26 feet then a second unit should be used. You will need to use the weld-on friction sway control tab # C45822 or # 3442. It will get welded to the side of the ball mount. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. Once welded on it will look like ball mount # D320 except the tab will be welded to the other side (since the plate you are using is occupying...

  • Bracket Recommendation for Installing Second Curt Friction Sway Control
  • For installing a two friction sway controls like part # 17200 you would need to have a second tab welded to the side of the ball mount. For that you would want the part # C45822. For a ball mount that has one tab installed on it already you would want the part # D320. This ball mount has a drop of 2 inches.

  • Can Friction Sway Control Units Be Installed on Both Sides of Trailer
  • The Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 comes setup to be installed on the passenger side of a trailer, but you can easily install it on the driver side of a trailer by removing the inner piece of the unit, flipping it around 180 degrees and then reinserting it. You will need to have a tab welded to the other side of the ball mount. For that you will need the part # C45822.
