The Equalizer hitch parts I received were exactly what I needed to adapt our trailer hitch setup to a new tow vehicle. More importantly, Martha was super helpful - understood what I was trying to accomplish, and found the right parts for us. Great experience!



by:

I just wish I had know about this part 6 years ago. you don't know what you don't know. Thanks
for getting it to me as soon as you did considering it was during the Christmas rush.



by:

Well I guess it was my fault I was needing 10” drop
Instead of a 6” drop but that’s what the lady at camper dealership gave me item number



by:

The first one they shipped was the wrong one. Called customer service on
Wednesday had right one by Friday. Exchange/return was a minor inconvenience. I will give them great marks for their expedient handling as I needed it to set up hitch for weekend hunting excursion. Went from crossover to truck, thus the need for more drop. Went together with hitch head in about an hour and I was on my way. Thanks for the great service.

Still Working good



by:

Part is exactly as expected and came in on time. Price was a full $70 cheaper (including shipping) than direct from the manufacturer. I'm (again) a happy customer.



by:

Outstanding response, explanations, and service.

Thank you,

Works perfectly!. Solved our turning radius problem between our trailer A-Frame mounted bike rack (Lippert Jack-It 2) and the canopy on our P/U.



by:

Turned out, to be just what I needed. I have 5.5ft bed in my truck. Pulling my trailer now allows me to drive with the tailgate down and my dirt bike in the bed. Only thing to keep an eye on is your turning radius, it's not as tight. Overall, well built. But if the hitch pin hole was 2 inches longer, it would help with the turning radius. I like it.



by:

I haven't used this hitch shank yet but it looks and feels pretty solid. It took a total of three days from order to doorstep and that's awesome. I emailed trailer with questions and they were answered the next morning. The answers were very professional and to the point. I have ordered from trailer before and they have always delivered a good product quickly.



by:

Bought it so I could open my tail gate when hitch to the trailer. The tail gate would hit the electric tong jack. On some jacks you can easily modifiy the jack to turn to side ways position. In my case not a simple mod. So I went to 18 inch shank.



by:

My Tahoe hatch would hit my RV jack when opening. Adding this shank made it open completely, without hitting. One thing to remember is to check your safety chains length. To insure they reach to connect to you tow hitch.



by:

I needed the longer shank to to clear my lift gate hitting my propane tanks. Works great!!! Came 1 day sooner than expected



by:

Great for those that need a bit more room between the trailer jack and tailgate while hitched up!



by:

This hitch gave me the extra clearance I needed to be ble to open my tailgate with the trailer in place. It changed the flex point on the trailer ball a little but not enough to make a difference. It solved a problem for me.



by:

Required a longer shank in order to completely drop my tailgate when towing our travel trailer. Initially notified by eTrailer that this particular shank was out of stock, and they offered an alternate. Chose to wait; surprised that stock was replenished sooner than expected. ETrailer staff were proactive keeping me informed.



by:

This was a great purchase I have a ram 1500 with a 5 7 bed. I was hesitant that I would not have enough clearance for the golf cart with the tailgate down but after finding this wdh it did the job. Of course I had to lengthen my chains and extend my 7 pin cable but this does the job and worlds great with the weight distribution. My first time out I got stuck in a tight camping spot but even in a tight spot never made contact with my tailgate. I absolutely recommend and will post pictures. Ram 1500 5.7 hemi



by:

This is a BEEFY hitch shank. Works perfect with my Equal-i-zer weight distribution system.



by:

The original shank that came with the hitch had been cut off short, to stop dragging the ground when I was out Boondocking. Now I have had the axles flipped to raise the trailer higher, so I needed to flip the shank pointing up to get the correct ball height. The shank also needed to be back to its original length. Now the trailer rides level and the shank will not drag.

It shipped the same day as my order, and UPS got it to me in 2 days. Great products and service from Etrailer.



by:

Arrived in time to continue trip back home in Eastern Washington from Dallas area. Previous hitch was too short and couldn't open the tailgate and sharp turn I'd rub the propane covers on the tailgate. Both issues resolved. Thanks for quick attention.



by:

Easy switch over to longer shank .
No
major adjustments on WDH setting
Now can open tailgate all the way.
Did need to lengthen safety chains.



by:

I needed the extra length of this hitch shank to get my trailer hitch ball out from under the spare tire on my Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.
It works absolutely perfectly and is built extremely strong.
I am using with an Equal-i-zer hitch system, but would be suitable for most other weight distributing hitch configurations if the centering between the adjustment holes is correct for your ball mount.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for Horse Trailer With Total Weight of 6,900 lbs
    If I'm understanding correctly, it sounds like what you need is a weight distribution shank with the correct amount of rise or drop, which the Weigh Safe you referenced would not be used for. In order to figure the right amount of rise or drop, you need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside of your hitch receiver and then measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer's coupler and find the difference between the two measurements. If the height of your hitch is greater,...

  • Can a Weight Distribution with Sway Control System be Used on Lifted Truck
    You can certainly use a weight distribution system on your lifted truck. The key will be to find a weight distribution shank that offers you enough drop to be able to tow your trailer level. Weight distribution systems are available without a shank so that you can choose the one that works best for you. For example, if you have a trailer that has a loaded and ready to tow tongue weight somewhere around 1,000 pounds, a system like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution with 4-Point Sway Control...

  • Replacement Shank for Equal-I-zer 4,000 Pound Weight Distribution Systems
    For your 4,000 pound Equal-I-zer weight distribution system I recommend shank # EQ90-02-4340. It has the proper hole diameter to mount the head to the shank (5/8 inch). You can also use # EQ90-02-4240 or # EQ90-02-4140. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank # EQ90-02-4400 has the mounting holes with a 3/4 inch diameter. The head on your 4K Equal-I-zer system should be using 5/8 inch diameter bolts so it would not work with this shank.

  • Does Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System EQ37041ET Come With a Shank?
    The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution # EQ37041ET does not come with a shank. This system has a tongue weight capacity of up to 400 lbs and there are three shanks compatible with that weight capacity, each of which are 12" long and fit 2" hitches: # EQ90-02-4140 offers up to 7" of rise or 3" of drop # EQ90-02-4240 offers up to 8" of rise or 4" of drop # EQ90-02-4340 offers up to 10" of rise or 6" of drop

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for Equalizer EQ37100ET with More Drop Than Stock Shank
    I do have a solution for you, but you will need to use a weight distribution shank that is compatible with your Equalizer # EQ37100ET weight distribution system and not one that has been altered. I recommend using the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 7" Rise, 3" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-02-4100, which is compatible with your Equalizer system. This keeps your warranty in tact and is the best solution for this problem. If you need something with more drop then you can...

  • Troubleshooting 2K Trailer Sway While Towing with a 2021 Ram 2500 Cummins
    It sounds like your camper is catching wind on the highway and causing that sway you're talking about. To remedy this you need to invest in a weight distribution system that includes sway control. Normally weight distribution is only used if the trailer weighs at least half the weight of the tow vehicle but it sounds like in your case there is an exception. For a weight distribution system I recommend checking out the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37040ET which has the proper...

  • Recommendation For Weight Distribution For R-Pod 171
    When selecting a weight distribution system for your R-Pod 171, the key factor is the tongue weight (TW) of your towing setup. This means the total load of your trailer with all the gear and supplies included. You will also need to add any weight from behind your tow vehicle's rear axle to determine total tongue weight. TW is 10% to 15% of the total weight of your fully loaded trailer. For example: a trailer fully loaded at 3,500-lbs would have a TW of 350-lbs to 525-lbs. Ideally,...

  • Best Weight Distribution With Sway Control for Scamp 13 Trailer
    We have the perfect option for a your lightweight Scamp 13 trailer for a weight distribution system with sway control that will also allow you to back up with the system connected, which is the following: - Fastway e2 Weight Distribution with 2-Point Sway Control # FA92-00-0450 There are a number of reasons why I really like the Fastway, starting with its highly effective sway control, which occurs via friction at two points on the brackets to keep your trailer from moving.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 2016 Ram
    In order to choose the best weight distribution hitch, you will first need to know your total tongue weight. That weight is going to be the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go 2018 R-Pod 180 plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2016 Ram. To determine this you can use a scale such as the Sherline # 5780 or by using one of the methods outlined in the help article on determining tongue weight I've linked for you.
