Video Transcript for Review of Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Hitch - Replacement Head - EQ90-02-1400

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this replacement head for your 14,000 lbs Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System. Now this part is a replacement adjustable weight distribution head assembly, that'll fit the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System. That's rated at 14,000 lbs gross towing weight capacity and 1400 lbs tongue weight capacity. Basically this head right here, this portion you'll bolt to the shank of your Weight Distribution System.

And then right up front here, you can see the two openings. These will accept the spring bars. And then right up at the top here is where your hitch ball will be attached for the trailer coupler to attach to. Now this is just for the head, the mounting hardware the washer spacer rivet, are all sold separately, and we do list them on this product page as related products. Now the hitch ball that goes in here, it will require a 2 5/16" diameter hitch ball.

We do sell that separately. It's part number EQ91-00-6140. And then the spring bars that go right in here, it does use 1400 lbs tongue-weight spring bars. And again, we sell 'em separately. They're part number EQ90-01-1499.

Now this part is made in the USA, just to spin it around so you can see it. And then all also right up here, you can see down here the adjustment bolt that's included in there. But that should do it for the review on this replacement head for the 14,000 lbs Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System..

I needed to upgrade my Equal-i-zer 12,000 lb. hitch to 14,000 lb. So, the folks at e-trailer were very helpful in guiding me to what I needed to do. Instead of having to purchase a completely new 14,000 lb. hitch, all I needed to do was purchase the 14,000 lb. hitch head and matching ball to replace my current 12,000lb. set-up. The folks at e-trailer were very helpful and I received the replacement parts in just a few days. I was able to save several hundred dollars by replacing just a few parts instead of buying a completely new hitch. Thank You, etrailer.

  • Welds are Cracking on 6-Year-Old Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System
    It could be some sort of issue with the steel on your Equal-I-zer weight distribution system # EQ37140ET. Frequent overloading of the hitch could also cause this issue. I'm not saying that you overload the system but that is just one possibility. The warranty is as follows: Limited Lifetime Warranty: Progress Mfg. Inc. warrants the Equal-i-zer hitch against latent defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service, ordinary wear and tear is excepted, from the first date...

  • What is the Weight Rating for My Equal-i-zer Hitch Head
    I spoke my contact at Equal-i-zer and he told me that since it has 1 1/2" bars it is probably rated for 12,000 lbs. He said the way to tell for sure is to measure the bolt channel. If it measures 3/8" it is a 12,000 lb hitch, if it measures 1/2" then it is a 14,000 lb hitch.

  • Parts Needed to Upgrade 1,000 lb Tongue Weight Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution to 1,400 lb
    The heads of the Equal-i-zer weight distribution systems are different based on the tongue weight rating of the system so you'd have to also replace the head with the part # EQ90-02-1400 with spring bars # EQ90-01-1499 to upgrade your system to a higher rated setup.

  • How to Upgrade 12K Equal-i-zer to 14K Eqaul-i-zer
    I'm not sure how to find out the age of your setup, but when I passed your photos along to my contact at Equal-i-zer he said that all you need to do for the upgraded system is swap out your 12K head unit for the 14K # EQ90-02-1400. Since your hardware looks like it's seen better days you might also consider replacing those with part # EQ90-02-9100 while you're at it. The reason you only need to swap out the head is because the 12K and 14K Equal-i-zer systems both has the same size bars...

  • Parts Needed to Upgrade a 1,200 lb Equalizer System to a 1,400 lb System
    It sounds like you are looking to upgrade your Equalizer Weight Distribution setup from a 1,200 lb tongue weight setup to a 1,400 lbs setup. To do that you will also need to upgrade the head since the bars are all made to fit one specific head. For the 1,400 lb bars part # EQ90-01-1499 you would also need the matching replacement head part # EQ90-02-1400.

  • Heavier Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution # EQ90-01-1499
    Yes, you can get distribution bars with a Tongue Weight between 1,000 lbs and 1,400 lbs and a Gross Towing Weight up to 14,000 lbs. Replacement Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ90-01-1499 is what I recommend. However with Equalizer, you also need a head that rated for that weight too. Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems,1,400 lbs TW Item # EQ90-02-1400 will complete your replacement system. .

  • How to Upgrade Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution System to 1,400 lb Spring Bars
    The head and the spring bars of the Equal-I-zer systems have to be replaced if you go to a higher rated tongue weight. If you are unloaded at 1,055 lbs you'd want to go with the 1,400 lb bars part # EQ90-01-1499 then for the correct rated head you'd need the part # EQ90-02-1400 and you'd be set. You would still be able to use your old shank and bar hangers from your old system. You'd have to use new settings too since the system and trailer are totally different and because your trailer...

  • Can Equal-i-zer 1,000 lb Spring Bars Work With 1,400 lb Head Unit
    You can re-use your shank, so long as it is rated for 1,400 lbs, but your 1,000 lb Equal-i-zer spring bars are not compatible with the 1,400 lb head unit, which is the Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-02-1400. So what you would need to do is upgrade the spring bars as well to the 1,400 lb capacity bars, which are the Replacement Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - Qty 2 - 1,400 lbs # EQ90-01-1499.

    To upgrade your Equalizer weight distribution to a 1,400 spring bar you would need the bars like part # EQ90-01-1499 and you'd also need a replacement head too with part # EQ90-02-1400 since the heads and the bars are all made to fit each other based on weight rating.

  • 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.

  • Equal-i-zer Spring Bar Replacement for Trailer with Tongue Weight 1,200 lb
    You would need a higher rated setup as 1,200 lbs would be too much for your current system rated for 1,000. Basically the WD system wouldn't be effective. To upgrade to a 1,400 system which would be correct for what you mentioned you would need the Replacement Spring Bars for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - Qty 2 - 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-01-1499 and Replacement Head for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems - 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-02-1400.

  • 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...

  • Parts Needed to Convert Equal-I-Zer System to 1,400 lb Tongue Weight System
    The difference is the spring bars of the systems and the amount of weight they are designed for in tongue weight. So if you replaced the spring bars of your current system with the part # EQ90-01-1499 you'd have a 1,400 lb system like what you need. You also have to swap head out too though so you'd also need # EQ90-02-1400.

  • Upgrading a 12K Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System to a 14K
    There area few differences between the 1,200 and 1,400 pound Equal-I-zer systems. The heads are different and the spring bars are different. If your tongue weight is over 1,200 pound then the 1,200 pound system is not rated high enough. When calculating tongue weight for weight distribution you go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking 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....

  • Should Equal-i-zer 1,000 lb System be Upgraded For 1,200 lb Tongue Weight
    Since you are upgrading to a tongue weight of what could be 1,200 lbs, you will definitely need to upgrade from the 1,000 lb Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET. The reason being that with a set up rated lower than your tongue weight, you'll have a system that is ineffective and won't give you the leveling or sway control needed for a higher rating. The good news is, you don't have to get a completely new system, you can upgrade by getting new bars and a new head unit. The...
