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.

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

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

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 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 purchased this product along with a sway control bar to mount on my RZR trailer that I pull behind my 26 ft bumper pull travel trailer. We get a lot of wind in Idaho and the light weight trailer would start to fishtail uncontrollably in high winds. Most of the other brackets for sway control devices either needed to be welded on my hitch or I would have to buy a totally new hitch with the bracket already attached. This bracket installed easily and etrailer shipped fast so the problem was eliminated quickly. It worked so well that I purchased a second one for my travel trailer as well. Thanks etrailer and keep up the good work!!! 273004

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.

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

  • Trailer Ball Height to Increase Tongue Weight to Help with Sway Control on a Single Axle Fish House
  • You should have the hitch ball height set so that the trailer tows as level as possible behind your pickup. If there is a setting that goes between slightly higher than level and slightly lower than level, opt for the slightly lower setting, when the trailer is sitting on the trailer ball. An increase in tongue weight will most likely help with your sway situation. Adding weight in front of the trailer axles would be the best way to increase the tongue weight, just make sure you stay...

  • Parts Needed to Tow a Small Travel Trailer with a 1996 Toyota Tacoma
  • The towing capacity of your 1996 Toyota Tacoma will depend on if your truck has a V6 or a 4 cylinder and if it is a 4X4 or a 4X2. I have listed the towing capacities of the different options for the Toyota Tacoma below. 4X4 V6 - 8,300 lbs 4X4 4 Cyl. - 7,400 lbs 4X2 V6 - 8,300 lbs 4X2 4 Cyl. - 3,500 lbs You can verify the towing capacity of your truck by checking your owners manual or contacting a local Toyota dealer with your vehicle identification number.

  • 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...

  • Towing Recommendations for a 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • First lets start with a hitch for your vehicle. I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75270 because it has a high towing capacity compared to the Curt Hitch. Next the wiring harness that is custom fit for your 2015 Honda Odyssey is # 118521 this will provide you with a 4-pole connector at the back of your tow vehicle. Don't worry that your vehicle isn't already prewired for a brake controller, I have a solution for that too. Our # ETBC7 kit includes everything you need to install an electric...

I did some research online and could not find a weight distribution recommendation for the OEM hitch that is inatalled on the Audi Q5.

  • What Hitch Ball Does Blue Ox Weight Distribution System Use?
  • For the weight distribution hitches from Blue Ox that have a gross towing weight of 20,000 lbs, # BXW2000 and # BXW2003 you only need a hitch ball with either a 1" or 1-1/4" diameter shank. For a 2" hitch ball you can use # 63845 and for a 2-5/16" hitch ball you can use # 63847. To put it on the system, you only need to slide the ball into the hitch head and tighten it. If you go to 5:45 of the linked video review you can see exactly how to install the hitch ball.

  • Recommended Sway Control Option for Small Trailer
  • Sway control is beneficial in towing conditions such as crosswinds or a large truck passing; the system will allow you to have greater stability and control than otherwise. There is a sway control bar that could work for you, the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. This kit uses friction as control, as the cam system is for use in weight distribution systems. The Pro Series attaches to either side of your trailer tongue, and mounts with a sway-control bracket, either # RP26003...

  • Is Sway Control Needed for Hauling Motorcycle on 6X12 Patriot Homesteader Enclosed Trailer
  • Take the loaded trailer out for a few test runs, including a short run on an interstate. Crosswinds and turbulence caused by passing tractor trailers will quickly tell you if trailer sway will be a problem for you. If sway is a problem, properly loading the trailer will go a long way to controlling trailer sway. Make sure the bike is as far forward of the trailer axle as you can get it, because more tongue weight helps eliminate trailer sway. If moving the bike forward is not feasible,...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendations for a 6,000 Pound Pace Trailer
  • When choosing a weight distribution and sway control system, you will want to install one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses your trailer tongue weight. Tongue weight should be between 10 and 15 percent of the gross trailer weight, or in your case, 600 to 900 pounds. With this is mind, I recommend a system with a range of 600 to 1,200 pounds like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control, # RP66088.

  • Is Sway Control Needed When Towing a R-Pod 173T Trailer with a Ford Excursion
  • Sway control is not necessarily needed when towing smaller trailers like your R Pod 173T, but it would not hurt to have one. The best way to determine if you need sway control on your trailer is to load your trailer as if you were leaving for a trip and drive around for a few miles on the highway and see if sway might be an issue. If you feel that your trailer is swaying more than you are comfortable with, then you could go with an individual sway control bar like the Pro Series Friction...

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...

  • By all means, take your children camping! I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2010 Honda Odyssey and it looks like the maximum total trailer weight (the weight of your loaded trailer) you Odyssey can tow is going to depend on the number of occupants.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2005 Chevy Trailblazer Towing a 28 Foot 5,000-Lb Trailer
  • Most likely what would cause the sway control plate to bend is from backing up your trailer in a tight situation. The sharp turning when backing up would cause the friction sway control to be completely compressed and then put the strain on the sway control plate and cause it to bend. With the trailer being 28 feet long that would probably put you in more situations where you might encounter sharp turning when backing up. Weight distributing systems should be used any time the trailer...

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...

This will allow for turning to still happen without issue, but will need to be removed for backing up, which is easy with a single pin removal.

  • Adding Pro-Series Sway Control, part # 83660, to 1999 Coleman Santee Pop-Up Camper

Your Santee is just under 22 feet in length (with a dry weight of 1700 lbs) so you certainly have the option to use just one sway control arm. Depending on what vehicle you are using to tow the Santee, you may also benefit from a weight distribution system and many such systems are available with built-in sway control....

  • Can Sway Control Adapter Plate # RP26003 Be Used on the Left or Right Side
  • I do have an option that will allow you to use a sway control bar on the left side of a ball mount, however, the Reese Sway Control adapter plate # RP26003 is designed to be used on the right side only. To be used on the left side, this plate would have to be turned upside down and the lip on the bottom of the plate would not allow the hitch ball to be completely tightened to the plate and the lip would interfere with the operation of the sway control bar. To use a sway control...

  • Will the Reese Sway Control Bracket Fit a 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball
  • The Reese Sway Control Bracket, # RP26003, will work with 2-5/16 inch hitch balls as long as the shank of the hitch ball is no larger than 1 inch in diameter. The ball hole of the Reese bracket has a 1 inch diameter. If your current hitch ball has a shank with a diameter larger than 1 inch, then I would recommend picking up the Curt 2-5/16 inch hitch ball, # C40007, with the sway control bracket.

  • Lift Brackets for a Weight Distribution System for a Trailer with 3 Inch Wide Frame
  • What you could use are chain hangers # RP58306. You would just need longer bolts because the ones that are included are not long enough for a 3 inch frame. Use grade 5 or better hardware. These are just hangers, not lift brackets, so you would need to use the trailer jack to get the required tension on the spring bars. If you are just looking for a more stable tow then you could just add a friction bar sway control unit like # 83660. It comes with everything you will need though you...

  • Will Bias Ply Trailer Tire Sidewalls Flex Less than Radial and Help With Snowmobile Trailer Sway
  • Snowmobile trailers are notorious for having sway problems due to their short lengths and wide construction. this makes it hard to load the trailer with enough tongue weight to eliminate trailer sway, especially at higher speeds. The best prevention against trailer sway is proper trailer loading. Going with a bias ply ST rated trailer tire may help a bit because the tire construction is inline with the tires direction of travel and the radial tires construction is across the direction...

  • Recommended Sway Control for Towing Aluminum Shadow 2 Horse Trailer
  • Based on your trailer, a weight distribution system won't work well. Because it is all aluminum you would still be protected by powder coat, but you would need to drill into the frame because it is enclosed. Based on the photo you attached, I really think you will be limited by space. Check your measurements against the trunnion bar lengths of around 30 inches. You will need brackets to fall around 25-27 inches in most cases. If you were to decide to use weight distribution, I recommend...

  • Best Trailer Sway Control System for a GMC Yukon Denali with Self Leveling System
  • For your situation, I would recommend install a friction sway control bar like the Pro Series Friction Sway Control, # 83660. Since your 2011 GMC Yukon Denali does not sag due to the self leveling system, a friction sway bar would be an excellent way to reduce sway without having to install an entire weight distribution system. To use a sway control bar separately from a weight distribution system, you will want the Reese Sway Control Bracket, # RP26003. This bracket will attached to...
