Video Transcript for Review of Equal-i-zer Replacement Head For Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - EQ90-02-1200

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today, we're gonna take a brief look at this replacement head for Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems. Now, this replacement weight distribution head fits Equal-i-zer systems rated at 12,000 pounds gross towing weight and 1,200 pounds tongue weight. The mounting hardware, the washers, and spacer rivet are sold separately but you can find them under the related products section on this product page. This is made in the USA from a steel construction and it's going to feature a black powder coat finish to help resist rust and corrosion.

And as you can see, it has the connection points for the end of your spring bar, and you line up the holes, and secure in place with a pin and clip. It has the ball, the hole rather, for your ball. And that is going to have a diameter of an inch and a quarter. And this unit does come with a new set bolt right there, which applies pressure to the weight distribution's shank. And then the shank is going to sit here and this is where your hardware would insert, and the space rivet, and the flat washers.

Now, because this replacement is from Equal-i-zer, you can have the confidence that it's going to fit your Equal-i-zer systems rated at 12,000 pounds gross towing weight and 1,200 pounds tongue weight. And that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Already had the 10k version.
Works great,
but the Dunbar dealer undersized me-had to get the next one up.
etrailer rocks!


Comments
Great-finally. Unethical dealer sold me the wrong weight class hitch. After discovery I replaced with the correct weight class. It took 5 men, three boys and a hydraulic press and a 10# sledge to get the sockets out. Double that to get them back in. When torqued to spec I, could not even move the sockets with the sway bar. I he’d to back completely off the torque, put the bars in place with the help of two friends and then re torque I went to an empty parking lot, rig in tow and did figure 8s for two hours. I still had to but my fat a.. on the deck on push the bars into place. Have quite a few miles on it now and is still rather tight-but manageable. Yes, I would highly recommend this hitch regardless

The unit was not for the faint of heart. The tolerances were very tight and didn't initially fit. The bars did not seat completely into the sockets. The hitch had to be taken apart the bars inserted and then the bolts reinstalled. In order to get the bars to move in the hitch I had to grind on the hitch faces. I suspect 25K miles will loosen things up. All in all it worked OK. Arrived in good shape and on time.


Comments
You mentioned you had to do some grinding to get the bars to fit. I just had a few questions about that. Since this is a replacement head for an Equalizer weight distribution hitch, were the bars Equalizer bars? And how much did you have to grind away to get the bars to correctly?
-- Etrailer Expert Brooke M - 06/14/2022
Comments
The hitch head I replaced was an Equalizer twelve K and the bars slid into the receptacles.The problem the bar would contact the vertical bolt about a fourth an inch short of the attachment bolt. I had to take the vertical bolt out slide the bar all the way in and secure it. Then install the vertical bolt. Then everything worked. The reason I had to grind on the bar receptacle was so I could move it. It was so tight I had to beat on it to get it to move. More of a polish and paint remover than a hard grind. I am currently on the road with the camper and by the time I get back Ill have about five hundred miles on it and then I can take another look So far it is working good but I havent taken the bar out of reccptical yet. Im going to wait until I get back.

This particular order went very well, however I subsequently placed another order on June 17th. When I checked on the order I noticed that while it was "in stock" it wouldn't be shipped until a week later. The previous order went so well that I was very disappointed that this order would take so long to ship.



by:

The product I purchased was exactly what I wanted the only thing I would say is that the weight of the items were put in one box which ended up being pretty torn up and a struggle for the ups driver to remove from truck. Order should have been in 2 separate boxes or packaged so they would not move around.



by:

As usual great price, top brands and beat the delivery deadline, thanks for the focus on customer service!



by:

I noticed after my last outing with my toy hauler, that my hitch head was cracked. My local RV dealer could not guarantee delivery of the parts in time for my next trip. I contacted etrailer.com, and was told that yes, I would have my parts in time. My parts were delivered on time, and with a significant cost savings over my local dealer.
I will be ordering brake parts from etrailer.com soon.
Thank you for great service!

Replacement head is every bit as good as the original. Fit perfectly and we are good as new again.

Received on time and in good condition. Jazmine was very helpful. One of my go to stores from now on.

I have the 1000/10000 pound version of this unit and am trying out this heavier version to use with my new pickup.
etrailer was prompt and had the best overall prices on my order.



by:

The hitch I replaced was over 14 years old. This was a great deal when purchased.



by:

Excellent communication! I did not receive one set of bolts I ordered however with the great customer service issue is already in the works to be resolved.



by:

What I needed at the best price around. Needed a 2nd head for alternate tow vehicle. Free shipping was a bonus. Arrived one day before it was supposed to (another bonus). Great service all around.



by:

Everything was excellent including communications about part out of stock and they followed up and kept me notified at all times. Thanks again !!!!

  • Can Equal-i-zer Head be Used with Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
    All weight distribution system parts, except for the shank component that fits into your tow vehicle's trailer hitch, are proprietary and brand-specific. You will not be able to use a different brand head like the Equal-i-zer # EQ90-02-1200 with your existing Fastway trunnion bars and other parts. If you are still experiencing sway issues with your Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System # FA92-00-1200 installed, then there are a couple of things you can try that may help. I first recommend...

  • Recommended Higher Capacity Spring Bars And Head For Equali-zer Weight Distribution System
    Yes. To upgrade your 600 lb Equal-i-zer weight distribution system to a higher capacity, you will need to replace your spring bars, but also the head. I recommend the Replacement Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - Qty 2 - 1,200 lbs TW # EQ90-01-1299 for this application along with the Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - 1,200 lbs TW # EQ90-02-1200. It is an easy change out of your spring bars and head and you won't need to buy an entirely...

  • Can 1,200 lb Equalizer Spring Bars Replace 1,000 lb Spring Bars
    Since the 1,200 Equal-i-Zer spring bars # EQ90-01-1299 are wider at 1-1/2 inches than the 1,000 lb bars which are 1-3/8 inch you'd have to swap heads too. So with that you'd need the part # EQ90-02-1200 too to be able to convert from 1,000 lb tongue weight to 1,200 lb.

  • When Switching Weight Distribution Spring Bar Rating Is New Setup Required
    You'll need a new setup when going to a different spring bar since the bars would be rated totally differently. The part # EQ90-01-1299 is the correct spring bars and then for the head you'd want # EQ90-02-1200.

  • Are Sockets From Equal-i-zer Heads Interchangeable?
    I reached out to a representative of Equal-i-zer, who told me that the sockets from the 1,200 lb tongue weight head # EQ90-02-1200 will not fit in a 1,000 lb tongue weight head # EQ90-02-1000 because they are too big. If you need additional sockets for the 1,000 lb tongue weight head you would need replacements # EQ90-03-1000.

    If you move up to the 1,200LB Equal-i-zer Hitch Head # EQ90-02-1200 you will need to use the larger 1,200lb weight distribution Spring Bars # EQ90-01-1299 with the hitch as they use larger spring bars. To use your current spring bars you will need the 1,000LB Equal-i-zer Hitch Head # EQ90-02-1000.

  • What Size Socket is Needed For Attaching Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Head To Drop Shank?
    The Replacement Bolts # EQ90-02-9100 that hold the Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ90-02-1200 require a 1-1/8" socket.

  • Troubleshooting Angle Head Bolt of Equal-i-zer System that Won't Thread Past 1/4 Way In
    I would recommend checking out the threads of the head of your system as it's very possible they were damaged or stripped. If the wrong size bolt was threaded a quarter of the way into it or the right size bolt won't thread past that point that would indicate an issue with the threads. Most likely you'll need a new head for the system which will depend on the system you have. The # EQ90-02-1200 would be for if you have the 1,200 lb tongue weight kit part # EQ90-02-1000 for 1,000 lb kit,...

  • Recommended Equal-i-zer Hitch Head Rating
    The square tubes are different sizes. The systems basically have two bar dimensions, so if you bars are a fit in the head, then you will be fine with the head. If the bars do not fit in the head, then you cannot make it compatible. There are two different bar sizes, 1-1/4 and 1-1/2 inches and you can't vary between the two. If you need a new hitch head, I recommend the Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - 1,200 lbs TW # EQ90-02-1200. Unfortunately the numbers...

  • Are There Benefits to Upgrading to Higher-Rated Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System
    If your trailer has a tongue weight of around 700 pounds then your existing 10,000/1,000 pound Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET should be sufficient. Upgrading to a 12,000/1,200 system won't provide any additional benefits to your current setup and would only be a good option if you plan to at some point move to a heavier trailer. As it stands right now your 700 pound tongue weight falls right in the middle of your system's 600 to 1,000 pound range, which is ideal. The...

  • Can Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution be Upgraded to 1,200 lb Spring Bars
    To upgrade to a higher spring bar rating with an Equal-i-Zer system you have to replace the bars and the head since the bars are all different sizes and the heads are made to fit them specifically. So for bars you'd need the part # EQ90-01-1299 and then for the correct head part # EQ90-02-1200 and you'd be set.

  • Can 1,000 lb Tongue Weight Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System be Upgraded to 1,200 or 1,400 lb
    To change the tongue weight rating of an Equal-i-zer system you have to replace the head and the spring bars together. So you'd need the head part # EQ90-02-1200 for a 1,200 lb setup or part # EQ90-02-1400 for a 1,400 lb setup. For 1,200 lb bars you'd need part # EQ90-01-1299 or for 1,400 lb bars part # EQ90-01-1499.

    In order to increase the capacity of your Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET to 1,200 pounds of tongue weight, you will indeed need to replace the spring bars. The Replacement Spring Bars # EQ90-01-1299 referenced in your question are the correct bars for this and will provide a 1,200 pound tongue weight capacity. In order to make this conversion, you will also need to replace the head for your system with the Replacement Head # EQ90-02-1200. This is because the existing...

  • Does My Weight Distribution Hitch Add to the Total Tongue Weight of my Travel Trailer?
    This is a great question and we've actually spoken to Equal-i-zer about this issue and they have said not to take the weight of the weight distribution hitch into consideration when calculating your trailer's tongue weight. The reason for this is that when it comes down to it, the weight distribution hitch is actually what the trailer is sitting on and a majority of the components' weight is not actually being applied to the trailer. When it comes to your particular trailer, you're going...

  • Changing a 14K Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System to a 12K System
    I spoke with my contact at Equal-i-zer who said that the arms of the 14K Weight Distribution (WD) system # EQ37140ET and the 12K WD system # EQ37120ET are compatible with each other. In fact, he said they are the exact same bars. The difference between the systems actually stems from the head unit. To step down to the 12K system you will need to use the head unit # EQ90-02-1200 instead of the 14K head unit # EQ90-02-1400 that you are using. You want to make sure your WD system has a Tongue...

    Since the fender to ground dimensions are all level at 37 inches for all four fenders it sounds like you set up everything correctly. Now I noticed you said "no difference" is that because you aren't seeing a difference in sway reduction? If so, you should note that WD systems aren't really designed to prevent persistent sway. Is your loaded tongue weight 1,000 lbs or is it more than that? Is your system the part # EQ37100ET? If so this sytem is rated for up to 1,000 lb tongue weight max....

    The spring bars are a slightly different size, so in order to go from 1,400 lb spring bars to the 1,200 lb Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer # EQ90-01-1299 you would also need to get a new head unit, the 1,200 lb Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ90-02-1200.

  • Upgrading 1,000 Pound Equal-i-zer WD System to 1,200 Pound Rating
    The spring bars aren't interchangeable on the higher-rated Equal-i-zer WD systems, but you'll still be able to use components from your existing setup when making this upgrade. To increase your system to the 1,200/12,000 pound capacity, you will just need the 1,200 pound Spring Bars # EQ90-01-1299 and a new WD head, part # EQ90-02-1200. The remaining hardware from your current system (L-brackets on the frame, adjustable shank, etc) can all still be used.

  • How To Upgrade from Equal-i-zer 10K to 12K Weight Distribution System
    The head assembly and spring bars are different on the Equal-i-zer 12K when compared to the Equal-i-zer 10K so you will need both the Head part # EQ90-02-1200 and Spring Bars part # EQ90-01-1299 to upgrade capacity. The rest is the same so you can reuse the other parts.
