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!

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • Parts to Convert Fastway e2 to Equal-i-zer Trunnion Bar Weight Distribution
    It sounds like you have the Fastway e2 round bar 10K weight distribution system # FA94-00-1061. You can keep and re-use several parts of your Fastway system, the shank, the hitch ball and the lift brackets on the trailer. You will need a new head assembly # EQ90-02-1200, spring bars # EQ90-01-1299 and 2 of the pin/clip # EQ95-01-9400 since the Equal-i-zer systems like the 1200-lb # EQ37120ET use trunnion type bars, not round bars like the Fastway.

  • Is the Equal-i-zer 14K Weight Distribution System Too Much for a 7,500 lb - 8,000 lb Trailer
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control part # EQ37140ET would be a bit too overrated for a 7,500-8,000 lb trailer and if used there would some negative effects such as ineffective sway control. That said, it's pretty easy to switch to the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control part # EQ37120ET because all you will need is the Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ90-02-1200.

  • Can 1,200 lb Equal-i-zer Spring Bars Replace 1,400 lb Equal-i-zer Bars
    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. I've added a link to a video review of the bars for you to check out as well.

    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...

Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ90-01-1099 are 1-3/8" wide and the the Replacement 1,200 Lb. Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems are 1-1/2" wide.

  • Can Fastway e2 Sway-Control Brackets Be Used with Equal-i-zer Spring Bars
    I reached out to my contact at Equal-i-zer (and Fastway) and he said you can continue using the existing Fastway e2 lift brackets on your trailer with the new Equal-i-zer 1,200 pound Spring Bars # EQ90-01-1299 and Head # EQ90-02-1200. This is not an issue at all. The trailer frame brackets that are used for the Fastway and Equal-i-zer systems aren't identical, but they are interchangeable between the two systems in terms of function. There's no need to swap your current brackets with...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

    It sounds like you have the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET, which has a tongue weight capacity of 200 to 600 pounds. This will be quite a bit under-rated for your new trailer that has a tongue weight of around 1,000 pounds. I am not sure if this tongue weight is with the trailer fully loaded or empty. If this reading is with the trailer empty, this number will increase even further once the trailer is loaded and ready for a trip. I definitely recommend upgrading...

  • 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.

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.

    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...

  • Weight of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Head vs Strait-Line Weight Distribution Head
    The weigh distribution head of the Equal-i-zer # EQ37120ET, which can actually be purchased with part # EQ90-02-1200 has a weight of around 21-lbs, so it's fairly light weight. I think you'll find that most of the weight distribution heads that are comparable to the Equal-i-zer are going to weigh in the 20 to 40-lbs range. I really like the Equal-i-zer system and think it has some great features, but I recommend going with the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control...
