Looks like an extremely well built product. Glad I made the choice I did in buying this ball mount.

Have approached several RV an Tow experts for a solution to a car/motorcycle tow combination for months. Came across Etrailer on the Internet, and “asked their expert” for a suggestion. They suggested a heavy duty dual receiver that was substantial enough to accommodate any tow combination requirements. Their advice was “dead-on” right, and I ordered the parts and they were delivered a few days later. Their expertise is excellent, as is the ease of doing business with them. I can enthusiastically recommend this organization, and the professionals working with them!

  • Recommended Adjustable Drop Receiver That Can Be Used With Friction Sway Control
    I have another option for you, but while the Patriot Hitches Adjustable Drop Hitch Receiver Adapter # PH54FR would allow you to install your current ball mount with provisions for two friction sway control, it has not be tested for this at this time (1/29/2021) so I would not recommend using it in this manner at this time. For an option that is rated for use with friction sway control, I recommend the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 10K...

  • Does Gen-Y Have a Weight Distribution Shank Available?
    I have a couple great solutions but placing a weight distribution system in a Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount part # 325-GH-304 is not the way to go. Instead you can in most cases attach your current weight distribution system to one of the following and eliminate the additional connection point and problems that arise from it. The first is a fixed Weight Distribution Shank for Gen-Y Hitch part # 325-GH-0352 the second is one of my favorites the Gen-Y Shock Absorbing...

  • Recommendation for Dual Hitch Bike Rack and Ball Mount Compatible with Heavy Trailer
    We have a solution for you but it isn't a dual receiver but rather a stacked receiver ball mount. This won't be an adapter so won't reduce the tongue weight capacity of your trailer hitch like the adapter you asked about. It will allow you to use the top receiver for your 4 Bike Thule Apex # TH9025XT as long as your loaded tongue weight is within the parameters of your trailer hitch. You can also use a weight distribution system if desired at the same time. My recommendation for you...

  • Can Top Most Receiver Tube in Gen-Y 325-GH-304 Replacement Shank Be Used
    I believe you're wanting to know if all 4 receivers provided by the Gen-Y # 325-GH-304 shank are usable, is that right? All 4 receiver tubes on the # 325-GH-304 shank are indeed usable, including the top most one. You could even use more than one receiver, but you'll need to abide by either the 1500 lb tongue weight capacity of the shank or the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your vehicle, whichever of the two is lower.

  • Can Gen-Y Ball Mount 625-GH-304 Be Used With Cargo Carrier and Bike Rack At The Same Time?
    You sure can! Gen-Y has told us in the past that their shanks like the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-304 you were looking at can be used with multiple accessories at the same time as long as you do not exceed the tongue weight rating of the ball mount or the trailer hitch receiver on your 2018 Infiniti QX60. I included a video of the # 325-GH-304 for you to take a look at.

  • Can Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter be Used for Towing and a Bike Rack
    You are on the right track of thinking, but the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter # RM-077-8 actually isn't rated for towing a trailer so we need to look at a slightly different with the Gen-Y Hitches. For your application you could probably use part # 325-GH-303 or # 325-GH-304 as these are somewhat similar to the Roadmaster that you were previously looking at and they are definitely rated for towing and utilizing your bike rack. When it comes to the correct height of your ball...

  • High-Low Adapter Needed for Flat Towing a 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara
    Since you can use different brand high-low adapters with any tow bar we actually have flat towing high-low adapters that will work for your situation. Unfortunately none of our dual adapters have the weight capacity to accomplish this. Attached is a link to our selection of high-low adapters that you can filter through. These range from a 2" rise/drop # RM-072-2 all the way to a 10-1/4" rise/drop # RM-048-10. If you're looking for an option with about a 7" drop like what the Malone #...

  • Recommended Adjustable Receiver for Flat-Towing With At Least 6 Drop
    The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount part # 325-GH-304 is my recommendation on an adjustable receiver used for flat-towing. It will provide up to a 7-1/2" rise or drop depending on configuration.

  • Gen Y Replacement Shank on 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Towing Travel Trailer
    The Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-303 is a great option for lowering the ball mount for your 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. This shank is rated for 10,000lbs which is well below the 6,000lbs of your travel trailer. The one thing that I want you to consider is you said you have a 5" Lift. Does that include or exclude any larger tires that may have also been installed. If it doesn't include the tires you might want to consider the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable...

  • GenY and Roadmaster Hitch Pin Weight Capacity Comparisons
    Roadmaster hitch pins like # RM-316 and # RM-910034 are both rated for 10,000lbs. The GenY hitch pins like the # 325-GH-099 are rated for 32,000lbs. If you were using the # RM-316 the only way the lock would fall off is if it wasn't properly seated on the hitch pin when installed. If you were using the # RM-910034 the hitch pin clip could've came off. The GenY hitch pin clips wrap down for a bit of extra protection from coming off unlike the Roadmaster hitch pin clips.

  • Dimensions of Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount with 4 Stacked Receivers

You can most definitely use other brand ball mounts, or any hitch mounted accessory with a 2 inch shank. In regard to the receivers, as you mentioned, three of the four are open, while the fourth has the shank welded to the back of it. Most Class...

  • Is There an Option to Lower the Trailer Hitch Receiver for Motorcycle Carrier Use?
    There really isn't an option to lower your hitch 6 inches and carry 400 lb motorcycle with carrier. The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 6" Drop/Rise # RM-077-6 is the strongest option with a 400 lb tongue weight capacity that doesn't account for the weight of the carrier, so is not a working option. Adapters simply are not strong enough for the tongue weight you are seeking. Your best option is to use the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 7-1/2"...

  • Ball Mount Needed with Longer Shank for Use with a Ford E-350
    I do have a solution for you but the MaxxTow # MT70197 (and all of our other long shank ball mounts) is shorter than the Curt # C45900 that you currently have. You could use a Gen-Y shank like part # 325-GH-303 for a 5" rise/drop or part # 325-GH-304 for a 7-1/2" rise/drop along with the Gen-Y Tri-Ball Mount # 325-GH-034 which comes with 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" hitch balls and has a 12" long shank. Another option is to use a fixed ball mount with a long shank like the Hidden Hitch...

  • Dual Receiver Recommendation for Towing Car and Using Bike Rack Simultaneously
    The Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 8" Drop/Rise # RM-077-8 does have the 2 inch receiver like a Class III hitch on both openings but the Roadmaster adapters have a rounded shape to the inside of them to help be a tighter fit on accessories and the shank of your Swagman bike rack, # S64663, is extremely square and won't fit into Roadmaster adapters. Instead you can use the Replacement Shank for Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop/Rise - 10K # 325-GH-303 or 7-1/2"...
