The folks at etrailer go out of their way to make the customer happy. I ordered several things at one time including a trailer ball for a new hitch assembly. The ball wasn't included in the package even though the package was intact and not damaged. I contacted etrailer and without hesitation they issued a refund on my credit card which I consider great service. Also, I had just purchased a new motorhome and was having difficulty finding the built-in brake controller wiring. I contacted etrailer and they provided sufficient information for me to locate it without any further trouble. 558151

The weight distribution hitch and dual cam sway control were installed on a 2005 F250 pulling a 2003 Jayco "toy hauler". The instructions were very easy to read and understand making assembly and adjustments easy. The only complaint I have...A $500 hitch shouldn't have chips of paint missing and all "scuffed" up when it arrives! 401890

After 50,000 trouble-free miles pulling my 24' enclosed trailer with the help of a Pro Series RB3 weight distribution kit from etrailer.com, I took delivery of a new pick-up truck. The hitch receiver on the new truck is two inches higher than my old hitch receiver. I contacted etrailer.com Tech Support and they set me up with the RP3215 shank, which gives me the additional drop necessary to use my RB3 weight distribution kit with my new truck. 338454

Great quality, perfect for connecting my rather tall Jeep Grand Cherokee 2015 to my Reese 66072 Strait-Line 600# Trunnion weight distribution hitch system on a travel trailer. I've installed it in the down position, and the drop measured approximately 4" with that system in the center position (top of the receiver to bottom of the ball). This allows for moving up or down 1.25" from that drop (there are a total of 3 positions available with the trunnion bolt pattern). The shank is cast, fits the receiver very tightly, and also fits in the trunnion system snugly. The welds on this casting are beautiful, and appear to have been heat treated and ground smooth. Very high quality. eTrailer as always provided fast and friendly correspondence and shipped within moments of my placing the order. Arrived well packaged and on time. 229501

- RP3215
by:

Very well-made item. However, I had to return it as it was too short. It left me with the drop about 1 inch too short to put the WD hitch platform at the right height. I'm using this to refit the drop on a WD hitch to accomodate a new truck that sits 4 inches higher. I need a total of a 6 inch drop. This one only provide a 5 inch drop for my particular hitch. There was no way, from the information provided, that I would have been able to make that determination. I *though* it would work OK, but it cost me $23 to find out that I was wrong. Not e-trailer's fault. Caveat emptor. The return process was very straightforward and they make it easy for you, although do note that the return shipping ($23) is at your own expense. The packaging for shipment is fairly good, but this is a heavy box with no packing, Inevitably, the careless handling endemic to UPS leads to tears in the box with parts of the item exposed, and therefore scuffed. They told me that in the return process they could differentiate installation marks from shipping marks. We'll see. 195096

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for 5-1/2 Drop
    If the 21-1/2" measurement that you took on your 2018 Chevy Silverado is from the ground to the top of the inside of the trailer hitch receiver and the 16" of your trailer is from the ground to the bottom of your coupler then that means you need a drop of 5-1/2". The closest that we have to this measurement is the Reese # RP3215 which gives you a drop of 5-3/4" for a trunnion weight distribution (WD) system. You may also be interested in the Curt WD Shank # C17121 because it gives...

  • Ball Mount Shank With 1 Inch Hole Spacing In Shank
    The MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 8" Rise - 5,000 lbs # MT70067 has a similar shank and is the only option I can find that may have more drop for you with 1 inch increments. This ball mount is rated for 5000 lbs.

  • Eaz Lift Weight Distribution Drop Shank Recommendation
    The Reese Shank part # RP3215 that you referenced has 3/4 inch holes that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart. If the head of your Eaz system is compatible with that this shank would work well for you. Nearly all WD system use the same hole dimensions. We have found that almost all brands can use each others shanks.

  • Availability of a 10 Inch Rise Weight Distribution Shank for a Ford F-250
    You will need the Weight-Distributing Shank, 11 inches, item # RP3215, that you have referenced, to get the proper rise for your Ford F-250 pickup. The weight capacity of this shank is 14,000 pounds and the tongue weight capacity is 1,400 pounds. With your 9,800 pound gross trailer weight this shank will work great. I have included a link to a picture showing the various measurements and dimensions of this shank.

  • Longer Shank Recommendation for Husky Weight Distribution for Mounting Mud Flap
    Husky uses the industry standard style of weight distribution shanks so we have several options that will work from various manufacturers. For a longer shank we have the Reese part # RP3215 which is 13 inches long and would fit and give clearance.

  • Need Longer Shank for Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System
    If your Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution shank is not long enough for your application you can use a replacement shank from Blue Ox or another manufacturer such as Reese. Please note that the shank supplied with SwayPro has a height adjustment range of 13-inches (a drop of 1-1/2-inches up through a rise of 11-1/2-inches) along with a shank length of 10-inches. Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3215 offers a length of 11-inches and a height adjustment range from 5-3/4-inches...

  • What are the Dimensions of the 11 inch Weight-Distributing Shank
    I went out to our warehouse and measured the 11- inch Weight-Distributing Shank, item # RP3215, for you. On the shank from the top to the bottom, on the side with the adjustment holes, the measurement is 12 inches overall. On this same part of the shank, the holes are 1-1/4 inches on center, starting from the bottom of the shank, and 4-1/2 inches from the top hole center to the shank top. On the other end of the shank, the hitch pin hole is 3-1/4 inches on center from the back of the...

  • Recommended Shank With More Drop To Replace Shank Included With Reese Weight Distribution System
    For a weight distribution shank that has a bit more drop than the shank included with your Reese # RP66542 system I recommend part # RP3215. This shank features up to a 5-3/4 inch drop and a 11-1/2 inch rise when used with trunnion bars.

  • WD Drop Shank Recommendation for Ram 1500 Towing Airstream to Allow Trailer to Sit Level
    Ideally your trailer will sit as level as possible and your truck will maintain the same amount of rake that it has when unloaded. So to accomplish that your best option is to go with a drop shank that has more of a drop than what you currently have so that your trailer can be level and the system properly installed. Since you have the part # RP54970 which doesn't allow much of a drop and you are reasonably close to allowing the trailer to sit level the part # RP3215 would be a great...

  • What Should the Wheel Well Measurements on a Vehicle Once Weight Distribution System has Been Set up
    You will want the measurement from the front and back wheel wells to be almost the same as they were before you connected a trailer. You will want the measurements to be within 1/2 an inch of being what they were. Since the difference on your setup is 1 inch you will need to reduce the number of chain links between the spring bars and lift brackets until you get that additional 1/2 inch. You may have to angle the head of your weight distribution system back if your bars are pointed too...

  • Need Reese Weight Distribution Shank with 6-Inches of Drop and 1-Inch Hole Spacing
    Based on the hitch and coupler heights you referenced you will need a weight distribution shank with about 6-inches of drop to allow your hitched trailer to remain level. The Reese shank you referenced, part # RP3215, does offer 6-3/4-inches of drop if you have a round bar system and 5-3/4-inches of drop if its a trunnion bar type. This shank's hole size is 3/4-inch diameter but its hole spacing is 1-1/4-inches apart. The same holds for Reese shank # RP3344 and all other current production...

  • Do I Need a Ball Mount with a Rise or Drop on Ford F150 when Towing a 20ft Starcraft RV
    There really is no normal or standard height. The correct height for your ball mount/weight distribution shank is going to be determined by your trailer's coupler height. The trailer, when connected to your Ford F150, should always be as level as possible. This puts less of a strain on the connection between the trailer and hitch and provides a much safer and comfortable ride. You will want to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver opening. Next you will measure from...

  • How Do I Lower The Head On My Weight Distribution System
    I have the perfect weight distribution shank that you will want in order to lower the head of your weight distribution system. You will need a weight distribution shank with longer shaft that will allow for more drop. For this, I recommend using the Reese Weight Dist Shank part # RP3215. This shank is compatible with most round and trunnion bar weight distribution systems. It will allow you to lower the head of your weight distribution system up to 6-3/4" for round bars and 5-3/4" for...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Allowing up to 5 inches of Drop
    For a shank that allows up to 6-3/4 inches of drop we have the Reese part # RP3215 which would work well with a weight distribution system that doesn't include a shank. You didn't give me any specs on your trailer though so I can't really recommend a WD hitch. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the...

  • Replacing Weight Distributing Shank to Combat Trailer Sway
    It sounds like the weight distribution is dialed in correctly. How the trailer is loaded can have an effect on trailer sway. You typically want the tongue weight to be about 10 to 15 percent of the fully loaded trailer weight. Moving some gear toward the front of the trailer will usually help combat trailer sway. It is also important that the trailer be towed as close to level as possible. If your trailer is level, and you have the ground to wheel opening as close as you mentioned, going...

  • Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation for 4 inches of Drop
    For a weight distribution shank that can allow you the needed 4 inches of drop we have the part # RP3215 which would work well for you. It can do a drop of up to 6-3/4 inches. If you need the rest of the weight distribution system get me the amount on tongue weight your trailer has when loaded and I can pick you out the best solution.

  • Will Reese Weight Distribtution Shank RP3215 Work for Setup that Needs 5 inches of Drop
    Yes, the part # RP3215 would be a great option for a shank for your weight distribution setup. Getting within 1/2 an inch of level will be close enough. Especially when you consider that you would be 1/2 inch on the higher side for the nose of the trailer. The suspension of your vehicle will settle slightly with the tongue weight of your trailer so this will put you right where you need to be.

  • Recommend a Weight Distribution Shank For Reese Trunnion Weight Distribution System
    For a weight distribution shank that is compatible with a Reese Trunnion system and will provide a 5-3/4 inch drop, we have the Reese Weight Dist Shank, part # RP3215. For more than a 6 inch drop, we have the Reese Weight Dist Shank, part # RP3344. The # RP3344, will provide a 7-5/8 inch drop and is compatible with Reese trunnion-style weight distribution systems. I have linked a video review of the Reese Weight Dist Shank, part # RP3215.

  • Recommended Replacement 2-Inch Shank for Reese Weight Distribution System # RP66022
    Since your trailer coupler is 4-1/2-inches lower in height than the top of the hitch ball you want to use a 2-inch trunnion style shank with DROP in order for the hitched trailer to remain level. You can use Reese part # RP3215 that you referenced, or part # RP63971, both of which will give you the required drop and work with your Reese # RP66022 weight distribution system.

This shank features a 11-1/2 inch rise and 5-3/4 inch drop with a trunnion bar system which should work well for you. This shank has a 1,400 lb weight capacity.

  • Can Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3215 be Used in the Rise and Drop Positions
    Many weight distribution shanks can be used in either the rise or drop position allowing you to tow the trailer level. Reese shank # RP3215 can be used in the rise or drop position. In the rise position it offers up to 11-1/2 inches rise. And in the drop position it offers up to 6-3/4 inches of drop. The Reese shank part numbers that CAN NOT be used in both positions are the following: # RP63971 (drop only) # RP3344 (drop only)

I've linked the page to all your replacement shank options.

    The Reese Weight Dist Shank part # RP3215 will work with the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System but I recommend using the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank part # FA92-02-4315 as this shank is specifically designed to be used with Fastway weight distribution systems. It is also a more cost effective alternative. As long as the 12" of rise and 8-1/2" of drop are suitable for your needs, this will be the shank I recommend using.

  • Choosing Weight Distribution Shank with Correct Rise or Drop for 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
    You can certainly use a Curt shank with a Reese weight Distribution system. Weight distribution shanks from Reese and Curt Manufacturing both use the same 1-1/4 inch hole spacing. Ideally, you'd want the manufacturer of the W/D system and the shank to match, but if Reese doesn't offer the specific rise/drop you need, you can use a Curt shank. Because your Tahoe sits six inches higher than your previous tow vehicle, you will need a shank with 4 inches more drop. Check out the Curt shank...

    If the level trailer coupler height is greater than the height of the receiver on your Grand Cherokee, you will need a weight distribution shank with a rise. The closest I can get you to 12 inches of rise would be the 11-1/2 inches of rise provided by the # RP3215. The RP3344 is designed for use in the drop position only. The towing capacity of your vehicle can vary widely depending on the engine/transmission combo. Be sure to consult your owners manual to ensure you are not exceeding...

This shank features a 6-3/4 inch drop but can also be flipped to give you up to a 11-1/2 inch rise with trunnion-bar systems or a 10-1/4 inch rise with round-bar systems. Based on your measurements, you will need a rise of just around 9 inches so this will work great. The shank has a tongue weight capacity of 1,400 pounds.

This shank fits a 2 inch receiver opening and for round bar system can give you up to a 10-1/4 inch rise and with trunnion bar systems will give you up to an 11-1/2 inch rise. If you have a Reese WD system the ball mount would work great with this shank.

  • Best Weight Distribution With Sway Control for Trailer With 1,100 lbs Total Tongue Weight
    The BlueOx SwayPro # BXW1506 is a good system but I recommend the Reese Strait-Line # RP66130 over it. While both systems will be less noisy than the Equal-i-zer you referred to, the Strait-Line has the advantage because of its sway control system. The SwayPro uses a 4-point sway control system like the Equal-i-zer but the Strait-Line uses a dual cam system to prevent sway. This system's spring bars are suspended by this cam system (see accompanying photo) which ensures that the Strait-Line...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for Trailer with up to 1,200 lbs Tongue Weight
    The best weight distribution and sway control option we have for a tongue weight of up to 1,200 lbs would be the Strait Line part # RP66074 which has a tongue weight range of 600-1,200 lbs and comes with the best sway control for preventing sway before it starts. This kit doesn't come with a shank which allows you to select the one you'd need to provide the amount of drop required to tow trailer level. So for that the shank you'd need the part # RP3215 which can do a drop of up to 6-3/4...
