Video Transcript for Pro Series Weight Distribution PS58442 Review

Today were going to be taking a look at the Pro Series replacement weight distribution head assembly. This replacement head fits Pro Series weight distribution systems PS49903, PS49902, and PS49901. Its made from a very durable steel construction with protective finishing, thats going to keep it safe from rust and corrosion. Under the ball platform, located right here, youre going to notice that it does come with a new set bolt. The area where the spring bars go up into, its going to have that spring clip design, makes installing and releasing quick and easy. I also want to point out that located right here on each side is going to be the included and pre-installed grease zerks. That makes maintenance seem quick and easy.

It does come with a 2 5/16-inch steel chrome-plated hitch ball. Its also going to include a sway control ball and necessary mountain hardware. The sway control ball can be used on either side of the head assembly. Its a really nice, durable construction, and then youll notice all the hardware that it comes with. I just want to go over all the components real quick. Its going to come with two new bolts.

This is for attaching the head assembly to the adjustable shank. The adjustable shank is not included, but it does come with the bolts, the nuts and the washers to get that installed and attached to the weight distribution shank. Its also going to come with a hitch pin and clip. This is to secure the weight distribution shank inside the receiver tip of your hitch. Its going to come with two other clips. These are for the frame brackets or lift brackets.

Those clips are used to secure the lift brackets in the up or engaged positions. Then, its going to come with a new spacer rivet. That allows you to get the proper tilt that you need. Theres a slot right here for that spacer rivet. Then, its going to come with seven washers, so you simply add or remove washers to get the tilt that you need for your application. Thats going to do it for todays look at the Pro Series replacement weight distribution head assembly..

I contacted the manufacturer and the replacement weight distribution head you need is part # RP58112
Replacement Head for Reese Weight Distribution System - Round Bar
$187.75
for your reese round bars with 1,000 lb tw. According the manufacturer they changed the tongue weight on the 10,000 lb round bars to 800 lbs tongue weight 10 years ago but they still use the same head.

Well it's been a year since I purchased this product and it was worth every penny. I was looking for a comparable setup for my new RV as to what I was using on my truck. I wanted to reuse the weight distribution bars between the two hitches. The hitch on the truck was a much older version of a simular style hitch. The guys etrailer were great in analyzing my needs and recomending a new hitch for my RV that would fit my bill. And it did perfectly. Great guys to work with a great product. 482480

The product: The Pro Series Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head (Item # PS58442) I purchased from etrailer.com is perfect! I was not aware that it came with the trailer and anti-sway bar hitch balls, which saved me a lot of time by not having to swap over my old ones. This unit also comes with grease fittings for the tension bars, which my old unit did not. My old one wore out most likely because there were no grease fittings. The unit comes with all new bolts and spacer, so you don't need anything at all from the old hitch head to install this one. The installation time was under 15 minutes. The Company (etrailer.com): My experience with etrailer.com was "unusual"...that is, unusually GREAT! In a world of automated answering systems and companies that virtually eliminate human communication with customers, etrailer.com is a breath of fresh air! My inquiry about this replacement part was by email, with pictures of my old part for clarification. I did not have a manufacturer name or other markings on my old hitch head. I received a prompt reply from this company with additional questions. When they got all the information, they found a unit that would fit and let me know via email. I ordered the part, which was a special order. The folks at etrailer.com sent me an initial email to let me know to expect a delay, but they didn't stop there. I received additional communications from them as to the progress of my order, and then an email indicating it was shipped. The shipment for this heavy part was FREE because it was over $100. If other companies would continue to communicate with their customers on a more personal level, the world would be a better place. Thanks etrailer.com! 430142

Comments
This is a solid, well made RV trailer hitch. I have only one challenge with it and that is I cant pull back the flat springs that hold the pin for the leveling bars with my fingers. I have to use a flat head screw driver to release them. I keep an old screw driver in the camper just for that.

  • Replacement Head for Pro Series 10K Weight Distribution System
    It looks like you've got an obsolete Pro Series 10k Weight Distribution System. The Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head part # PS58442 is the correct replacement. However, it appears you're also missing a weight distribution shank, like # 63911, and possibly some other smaller components. For that reason, I recommend simply purchasing a complete system, like the Curt # C17342 which will include everything you need (except a hitch ball) at a super economical price. If...

  • Replacement Head for Weight Distribution System
    There are many replacement heads available. I've attached a couple links to assist you with the options we currently have available. One is for square bars, one for round bars, and one for trunnion bars. If you can't narrow it down based on look, send me a picture with as many markings as you can and I'll see what I can do to help. There aren't bushings on most weight distribution systems, so I need more clarity to help.

  • Longer Shank Recommendation For Using Pro Series Weight Distribution System With Taller Vehicle
    The # PS49901 that you have is compatible with virtually all of the weight distribution shanks that are available since most are made to industry standards. The Curt Shank part # C17124 is most likely going to be your best option. From the top of the shank down to the center of the lowest hole measures 13-1/2 inches.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Head Assembly Replacement
    Thanks for providing a picture and the head assembly is certainly bent as you referenced. The Pro Series bolt-together round bar head # PS58442 you referenced will fit your shank, but probably wont fit your Husky spring bar system because they aren't interchangeable. Since you are wanting a system with a 12,000 pound tow rating, I recommend going with an entirely new weight distribution setup. With that said, I recommend the Reese Steadi-Flex with sway control trunnion system # RP66560....

  • Replacement Shank and Head for Pro Series Weight Distribution PS49903
    The replacement head for the part PS49903 is the part # PS58442. Any of the standard weight distribution shanks will work with the setup. The most popular one with a great price is the part # 17120.

  • Determining if Weight Distribution System is Being Overloaded
    I'm a bit confused by the description of your set up. You mention that the Eaz-Lift set up is rated at 14000 towing/1400 tongue weight, but then go on to say the bars are rated at 600 lbs. If your spring bars are rated at a maximum of 600 lbs, it means that the tongue weight of the trailer plus the weight of anything stowed behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle cannot exceed the rating of the spring bars. It's vitally important that you're aware of the total tongue weight of your...

    The sway control ball on the Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head # PS58442 can be used with two balls and you can use the balls on either side of the head assembly (see picture). This replacement head fits Pro Series weight distribution systems # PS49583, # PS49582, # PS49901 The adjustable shank # C17100 is not included with this product, but it does come with the bolts, the nuts and the washers to get that installed and attached to the weight distribution...

    There aren't printed instructions, but there is a diagram that I attached that shows how all the pieces install together. For further setup info check out the installation instructions I attached for the Weight Distribution system part # PS49583 and the install video that details how to install and setup this system. The WD head part # PS58442 that you referenced is the head of assembly of the part # PS49583.

  • Maximum Gross Trailer Weight of Pro Series Weight Distribution Head Used as a Ball Mount
    The weight distribution head # PS58442 is a direct replacement for # PS49901, # PS49582, and # PS49583. All three have a gross trailer weight of 10,000 pounds. I verified with Pro Series that the head can be used without the spring bars as a ball mount but its maximum capacity is 10,000 pounds.

  • Is the Weigh Safe Hitch Ball # WSUN-3 Compatible With Pro Series WD Head # PS58442
    I went out to the warehouse and compared the Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head # PS58442 and the Weigh Safe 2-5/16" Hitch Ball w/ Built-In Scale # WSUN-3 that you referenced and it looked like there would be just enough room for the scale to fit on the bottom part of the head. My main concern is whether or not the bars for the Pro Series Weight Distribution (WD) system are going to crush the scale when you are making turns. I attached a picture that a customer...

    A replacement head is not available for an older Draw-Tite system like you said you have. The Draw-Tite system has been out of production for some time now. I recommend replacing the system with something that will work for you. I recommend a system like part # RP66558. This system is designed for trailers with tongue weight between 400 and 600-lbs. The system uses trunnion bars and comes with a sway control system built-in. The adjustable shank is also included with this system. The...

  • Replacement Head for Reese and Pro Series Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems
    The Reese round bar weight distribution systems and Pro Series round bar systems are fundamentally different and the parts are not interchangeable. For a Reese round bar system use head # RP58112. For a Pro Series round bar system use head # PS58442.

  • Replacement Head for Husky Weight Distribution System
    While some components of a weight distribution system can typically be interchangeable between manufacturers, such as the adjustable shank, replacing the system's head with one of a different brand is not recommended. This is because the head is tested along with its spring bars, and changing out these parts can affect the system's overall rating and performance. Because of this, I do not recommend using the Replacement Pro Series Weight Distribution Head # PS58442 on your Husky system,...

  • Will Reese Round Spring Bars Fit a Pro Series Weight Distribution Head
    Only the RB2 head, # 58333, is the same between certain Reese systems and Pro Series systems so head # PS58442 will not work with the Reese round spring bars. If you can tell me the part number of the Reese system you have I can look up which head fits it.

  • Does the Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head PS58442 Comes With a 2 Inch Hitch Ball
    The Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head part # PS58442 cannot be ordered with a 2" hitch ball but it can be used with such. What you are going to want to do is order both the above unit and the 2" Hitch Ball part # A-90. Once they both arrive you would just need to use a wrench to remove the 2-5/16" hitch ball so you can install the 2" hitch ball but unfortunately this will be your only option. In order to remove the 2-5/16" hitch ball and install the new 2"...

  • Does Pro Series Weight Distribution Head Fit Draw-Tite Weight Distribution Hitch?
    The Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head # PS58442 will potentially fit your Draw-Tite weight distribution system. This head fits Pro Series weight distribution systems # PS49583, # PS49582, and # PS49901 that are round bar systems comparable to Draw-Tite systems as they have the same parent company. If you let me know the exact part number of your system I can attempt to verify a fit for you.

  • Pro Series Weight Distribution System # PS49901 Recommendation to Replace Missing WD Components
    Yes, the Pro Series Weight Distribution System # PS49901 would work with the spring hangers you currently have attached to the frame on your trailer and would basically provide you with a brand new WD system for about the same price as replacing the components needed.

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for my 420-590 Tongue Weight Camper.
    We can get this figured out. Thanks for all of the information provided. It goes a long way in being able to determine exactly what you need. One thing to keep in mind is that the weight of the system is actually not added into the equation. It has a self balancing design and when set up has no weight added to the equation. That means you are going to be between 420-590 in tongue weight regardless of the configuration you choose for that trip. With that in mind the Fastway e2 Weight...

  • Replacement Pro Series Weight Distribution Head for Round Bar System
    Unfortunately the kit they made to replace those has been discontinued and they have no stock of the old parts. You will need to purchase a new head # PS58442 to have a functional part because the clip will no longer hold that bar in place.

  • What Parts Come with the Pro Series Replacement Weight Distribution Head # PS58442
    The replacement Pro Series weight distribution head # PS58442 does come with the hitch ball, sway control ball, and all necessary mounting hardware.Basically everything you see in the pictures. This head is a replacement for Pro Series weight distribution systems # PS49583, # PS49582, and # PS49901.

  • What If A Trailer's Tongue Weight Exceeds Capacity of Weight Distribution System
    If the actual tongue weight of your trailer exceeds the 600 pound capacity of your weight distribution system then it essentially will be as if you don't have a system hooked up at all. The spring bars won't have the strength to properly distribute weight and also won't be much help in fighting sway on the highway. It's also important to note that any added cargo weight you have behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle counts towards your total tongue weight as well so it's likely that...

  • Can Any Weight Distribution Shank and Head be Used with Any Brand of Spring Bar
    To determine if any of the weight distribution heads and shanks are going to work with the brackets that are welded to the trailer frame you will need to determine the brand of the bars and brackets. Or, if that is not feasible I would need to know what the distance is from the center of the ball cavity of the coupler back along the frame to the center point of the welded-on brackets. The sway bars, which are actually spring bars (sway bars are something else), for each system are different...

  • Replacement Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Stolen Husky WD Components
    Sorry to hear about your weight distribution system getting stolen. Due to the price of the individual parts you need (head, ball and shank) it is most likely going to be a better option to replace the entire system. We only have the one replacement Husky head # HT31516 and when you combine it's price with a new shank like # RP3215 you are at the price of some systems. Actually a Pro Series Round Bar system like part # PS49583 would cost almost as much as just one of the above mentioned...
