Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution RP26003 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for a two inch ball mount. This bracket provides the attachment point for friction-style sway-control systems. It is going to be sold separately, Sway-Controls not included. The one that we'd recommend is going to be RPtwo6660. It can be found right here at etrailer.com. Simply allows for use of friction sway-control without having a weight distribution systems. This unit mount to your class three or class four, two inch by two inch ball mount.

It's got the nice square cut out that rest on the ball platform. The hitch ball is what holds the bracket in place. You would place this onto the mount, place your hitch ball through, and On the bottom side of your mount you would secure the hitch ball with a standard lock washer and nut that comes with a hitch ball. Hitch ball's not included either. If you're in need of one you can find them here at etrailer.com. The unit constructed of a sturdy steel construction.

Nice solid steel design. It's going to measure 3/8 of an inch thick, and it's going to have a black powder-coated finish, to resist rust and corrosion. Again it is designed for class three or class four, two inch by two inch ball mounts. The ball mount must be narrower than this gap right here, in order for it to fit. It needs to be narrower than the cutout. That cutout's going to be about two and 5/8 of an inch, so the ball mount platform must be narrower than two 5/8 of an inch to fit the cutout.

The ball hole diameter for a hitch ball, that's going to give us a diameter of one inch. Again, the plate thickness is 3/8 of an inch. If you take a measurement from the center of this hole, to the center of the sway ball hole, just going straight across. You can see that that's going to be separated on center by 5 and a half inches. If we take a straight line measurement, it's going to be more like five and 3/8 of an inch. The unit's also covered with a limited lifetime warranty.

It's going to come with your installation instructions. I do want to go ahead and show you how it would fit on a mount. Basically this plate would fit directly over the ball mount platform. You'd lineup the holes of the bracket with the hole in the ball mount platform and then secure it again by installing the hitch ball. That's going to do for today's look at the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for two inch ball mounts.

Simple add-on. Arrived quickly packed with tires order at the same time. I did have to pick up a new ball with a longer shank to accomodate the thickness of the material and to allow proper thread protrusion past the nut. Price seems pretty high for such a simple piece of steel. 72143


Comments

I would have to agree,price is too high. I have no intentions of paying $35 for a flat piece of steel

I went into this project blindly. My truck is a 87 ranger. The load is an 8 foot trailer with a pick up camper and a 325 gal water tank. The water alone weighs almost 3000 lbs. The problem was sway and not leveling. I purchasted this load leveling hitch used and later discovered all I needed was the friction sway control. Considering the load and the small truck, it works very well. Now I have the load leveling hitch for sale at half price. Moral of the story do a little resurch first

Heavy duty quality. Looked for a long time before finding this. Sure beats big bulky hitch combinations and I don't need load equalization. Look easier than welding plate that comes with sway kit. etrailer was great about keeping me posted on order status. Although, initially back-ordered, it arrived a couple of days before promised date 139102

Plate has neat clean look. Just purchased new Reese sway control to replace old brand X that didnt take a fall from the tongue too well. Never have had a problem. Good quality for the price

I bought this damper mount because it was all set and I didn't have to do anything except bolt it on to my hitch bar. It was very simple just follow the direction provided. Remove the ball then position the damper mount and reinstall the ball. The quality of the part was excellent and everything worked as expected. 425417


Comments

Still works great! And it’s awesome because after about six months we changed the height so we just took the damper mount off the old draw bar and put it on the new draw bar, perfect.

You'll need this for installing a sway control bar with a small ball to attach to your hitch. Otherwise, you have to weld the plate in for the small ball that comes with the sway control bar. 492751

Having been a metal fabricator for many years, I was very disappointed that the space left between the downtabs that go over the ball mount was so great. It would have been so easy to make a snug fit. The way it is, there's a quarter-inch gap that may allow this attachment to work the ball loose. I haven't towed with it yet and it may be fine as it is, although, I believe I may have to add a weld on the inside of the gap to make a closer tolerance. All ball mounts are the same width...why not fabricate this part to fit tight over the ball mount? If it was too tight, it would have been much easier to file a little off than it will be to add more metal. I expected a better fit, but then again, I am used to precision fabrication. 152934


Comments

Not all ball mounts are the same width, but most are. When torqued down probably, the balls will exert enough clamping force that the ball will not back all the way off or loosen enough to fail. The most the platform could possibly rotate the assembly is around a 14 inch like the gap you have noticed. Not enough to release enough tension on the split washer on a ball to get it to back all the way off. This is not a precision piece because it does not have to be.

I ordered this product for an upcoming trip for my enclosed trailer along with a sway kit. It worked flawlessly. The sway was totally eliminated, and the adapter was very easy and straight forward to install. Be sure when you are ordering to make sure the size of the drawbar you are attaching this too, as I almost ordered for the 1 1/4" instead of the 2" that I needed. So glad I double checked. Everything I have ordered from etrailer.com has always worked for what I needed it to. I will return in the future, as demand dictates. 179482

Fit perfectly! There should be a suggestion, however, to be sure the shank of your ball is long enough to still use. Mine barely had threads at the bottom of the nut. Came close to needing a longer one 203636

Again I bought it because of a planned future trailer purchase and know that I will need Sway Control. This plate is necessary if you have NO way to attach the ball on your vehicle because the back end is all softer material. This uses the hitch ball threaded shank to attach it to the draw bar for installing the sway control device to your tow vehicle. 590365

  • Recommend Sway Control System for a Rockwood Geo Pro
  • I have two excellent options for you to help keep control of the trailer at highway speed, a friction sway control bar like the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit part # 83660 with the Sway-Control Bracket part # RP26003 or an electric sway control device like the Hayes Sway Master Electronic Sway Control System part # HA81775. These systems will both do an excellent job of helping to keep the trailer inline at highway speed. That said, the Hayes Sway Master Electronic Sway Control System...

  • Effect of Using Extra-Long Ball Mount for Towing
  • Use of an extra-long ball mount like # 80232 will not reduce a hitch's towing weight capacity the way that use of a separate extender/adapter will. Extenders like # C45791 and # D-192 actually do reduce the hitch towing capacity by 50-percent. Weight distribution hitch systems such as # C17501 should not be used with any type of hitch extender or adapter. A friction sway control unit like # 83660 can be used with an extra-long ball mount like # 80232 by adding a sway control bracket...

  • Sway Control for a Single Axle Trailer With an A-Frame Coupler
  • Since you have an a-frame, you're all ready to add a sway control system to your trailer. If you're wanting to just add a simple system to help control sway, I recommend the Reese Friction kit, part # 83660. You'll need an adapter bracket for your ball mount, part # RP26003 to finish the installation and get a good mount for your vehicle. I've included a video of this process so you can get familiar with how it works. If you have a larger trailer, let me know, as a weight distribution...

  • Does 2007 Toyota 4Runner Towing Travel Trailer Need Sway Control
  • I took a look at the owner's manual for your 2007 Toyota 4Runner and it was a bit convoluted in its presentation (as owner's manuals tend to be) but it did say that an '07 4Runner with a 4.7L V8 engine is the only model that can use a weight distribution system, which is understandable because some trailer hitches simply are not rated for use with weight distribution systems. The only way to use one is by removing the factory trailer hitch from your 4Runner and adding an aftermarket...

  • Friction Sway Control Recommendation for Boat Trailer Sway behind Fifth Wheel
  • Towing more than one trailer does make things more interesting. What I think would help you though is a friction sway control unit installed between the fifth wheel and the boat trailer like the # 83660. You also need the bracket part # RP26003 installed on the ball mount platform as well. This type of setup is great for reducing sway from semi truck passings etc. Another trick you can try is next time you get sway try pulling the manual over ride lever of your brake controller enough...

This adjustable friction sway bar can be added using the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts - Class III and IV # RP26003 or the 1-1/4 inch ball mount bracket # RP26005. It is recommended to pull the cotter pin to disengage this bar when backing up. You can also expand this system by adding another bar...

There is a sway control bar that could work for you, the Reese Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. This kit uses friction as control, as the cam system is for use in weight distribution systems. The Reese attaches to either side of your trailer tongue, and mounts with a sway-control bracket, either # RP26003 for Class...

If you measure from the center of your hitch pin hole rearward 15-3/4-inches that point will be where the center of the hitch ball hole will be.

I recommend going with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers - 2"-100 lbs # CC-275 which will allow you to use your current rack, and will add that trailer tongue weight, but will not reduce your hitch's tongue weight...

You would also need sway control bracket # RP26003 if your trailer had a Class III or Class IV, 2" x 2" ball mount or bracket # RP26005 for a Class II, 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" ball mount.

  • Why Cant 2019 Audi Q7 Use Weight Distribution System

You can use the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts # RP26003 for one side and you will need to weld a tab like # 3442 onto the other side of your ball mount.

If you happen to have the 2.0L engine, the towing capacity of the vehicle is 4,400 pounds, so I do recommend verifying the limits of the vehicle by checking the owner's manual or asking the dealer you are working with. You will need to adhere to the weakest component in your setup, even if the trailer hitch itself has a higher rating. In cases when a weight distribution system...

This friction sway bar will help trailers up to 26 feet long. With this system, I recommend the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts - Class III and IV # RP26003.

Then the friction sway control kit # 83660 comes into play for the trailer. To add the bracket for this system to your ball mount, you will need # RP26003 but you are correct that the hitch ball hole size is 1 inch so you will need to use a 1 inch diameter shank hitch ball like # C40007.

  • Why Are Service Body Trailer Hitches Not Rated for Weight Distribution Systems
  • The Draw-Tite Ultra Frame Service Body Trailer Hitch Receiver - Weld On - Class V - 2" # 41990-07 based on the manufacturers testing is not for use with weight distributions systems. This is the case for all of the universal fit service body style trailer hitches. This is most likely because of liability because these style hitches rely on third party welding and the tube is also not welded to the brackets. There is extra torque on the hitch receiver to spread out that total tongue...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount that Can be Used with Friction Sway Control
  • You can use sway control only with an adjustable ball mount in one of two ways. First, you could use sway control bracket # RP26003 which will fit a ball mount platform up to 2.610 inches wide. It also has a 1 inch diameter hitch ball hole. The other option is to weld on a sway control bracket # 3442. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder. For an adjustable ball mount that already has a sway control portion on it we have # 7390. It is rated for 6,000 pounds...

  • Comparing the Reese Light Duty Weight Distribution System to the Pro Series RB2 for a 2700lb trailer
  • When choosing a weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2004 Honda Odyssey. Tongue weight of a trailer is typically calculated to be 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. If your Scamp trailer weighs 2,700 lbs, then the tongue weight may be around 270 lbs to 405 lbs. You must then add the weight of the cargo that you load in the back...

  • Sway Control and Suspension Enhancement Recommendations for a 2013 Subaru Outback
  • Since the Hidden Hitch # 87568 is not rated for use with a weight distribution system I would not recommend you attempt to use a system with it. The best recommendation I could give you would be to load your trailer properly and if you are experiencing any sag you could install a set of Coil SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs for Coil Spring Suspension # CSS-1094R. These will help your vehicle ride level by giving extra support to the rear suspension. There is a sway control system...

  • Will Hayes Electronic Sway Control System Work With GM Vehicles With Integrated Brake Controller
  • The Hayes Sway Master Electronic Sway Control System, part # HA81775 will work with your enclosed snowmobile trailer. If you have an integrated brake controller on your GM vehicle I am sorry but they will not be compatible. There are some GM vehicles, either Chevrolet or GMC that have tow packages without the brake controller and the # HA81775 would work. So, bottom line is if you have a GM vehicle with an integrated brake controller the electronic sway control system will not work...

  • Adding a Friction Anti-Sway Bar to an RPod Trailer
  • What I recommend for your RPod trailer with the ball already attach to the side of the tongue is kit # 83660. This kit is very cost effective and will provide you with the sway control unit itself, the ball that will go on the vehicle side, and another plate that mounts to the trailer should you ever need to replace the one that is there. You will also need a sway control bracket # RP26003 for a 2 inch hitch receiver/ball mount or # RP26005 for a Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch/ball mount.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution With Sway Control on 2016 Toyota Highlander With 3000 Pound Trailer
  • A weight distribution system is recommended anytime your trailer's weight is at least half of your tow vehicle's weight. So with your 2016 Toyota Highlander towing a 3000 pound trailer, I definitely recommend using weight distribution with sway control, instead of just sway control. To choose a system you need to use your 300 pounds of tongue weight combined with the amount of weight stored in the back of your Highlander behind the rear axle. You want to make sure you have a system...
