Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution RP3344 Review

Today we are going to review part number RP3344. This is the Reese Weight Distribution Shank. This is for a drop-only position for a 2 inch hitch receiver. This is designed for use with either round bar weight distribution systems or a trunnion bar weight distribution system and it will provide a drop-only as you can see here in this position. This would insert into your hitch receiver. This would give your adjustment for your drop distance.

Each one of those distances between the holes is 1 1/4 inches so you can adjust your drop anywhere in 1 1/4 inch increments. This product is finished with a black powder coat finish. It does fit 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. Now the gross weight distribution trailer weight for this is 14,000 pounds. The tongue weight is 1,400 pounds.

Now your weight distribution head would attach right here to these holes. So if you use this on a round bar system, the distance from the center of the ball hole on your weight distribution head to your hitch pin hole would be 13 1/2 inches. The drop from the top of the hitch receiver tube opening to the top of the weight distribution head ball mount would be 8 5/8 inches. On a trunnion bar system, the distance from the center of the ball hole on the weight distribution head to the hitch pin hole is 12 7/8 inches. The drop on that would be 7 5/8 inches.

Now the shank bar length on this is going to be, we will see if we can get that in a better position for you, the shank bar length would be 11 inches. This part does come with a limited lifetime warranty. That should do it for review on part number RP3344.

These are pics of RP3344 installed on my 2011 Dodge Ram. The hitch is still not perfect. I need two more inches of drop to have the trailer level. It is inclined up as it sets on the ball rather than flat. Not e the truck is real close to level. 15254

  • Shank with More Drop for a Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System
  • There are certain shanks that are compatible with the Reese Steadi-Flex weight distribution systems such as # RP66560. You can use # RP3344 which will get you to a maximum of 7-5/8 inches drop. The shank is available separately but cannot be swapped out for the one that comes in the kit.

  • Weight Distribution System Drop Recommendation for Lifted Trucks
  • For your weight distribution shank I recommend the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long # RP3344. This shank will give you a 7-5/8" drop using a trunnion-bar system or a 8-5/8" drop using a round bar system. If you have a round bar system, you can get a deeper drop of up to 9-1/2 inches with the Curt # C17124. These are the deepest drop shanks we carry based on the bar style of your system. If you need a deeper drop then you will need to use the Gen-Y stackable ball...

  • Recommended Replacement Weight Distribution Shank with Drop for Reese Steadi-Flex System
  • Your Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System # RP66559 is compatible with many different drop shank options. The Reese Weight Dist Shank # RP3344 has a maximum drop of 7-5/8 inches and a minimum drop or 6-3/8 inches. You can alternatively use the Curt Weight Distribution Shank # C17124 with a maximum drop of 7-1/2 inches. I personally recommend the Curt shank to save you some money and get you a great working option.

  • Weight Distribution Shank for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver with More Drop
  • For your 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver, the shank with the most drop is the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Rise/6" Drop # EQ90-02-4900. This will give you 2 inches more drop than the # EQ90-02-4800 you referenced. Depending on your system you may alternatively be able to use a shank like the Reese Weight Dist Shank - Drop Only - 11" Long - 7-5/8", 8-5/8" Drop # RP3344 with a sleeve reducer like # 325-GH-007. This is not ideal but in some cases can work depending...

  • Longer Weight Distribution Shank, Timbren Springs and Straptek Sway Control for 2014 Ram 2500
  • I am sure we can get you set up with the parts you will need to get a little more clearance between the truck and trailer. Curt shank # C17122 measures 14 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes so it will provide a little more clearance. Adding Timbren springs # TDR2500D will help the truck support all of that weight better and will help reduce stress on the stock suspension so it would be beneficial to use it. One thing to keep in mind...

  • How to Pick Out New Drop Shank for Weight Distribution With New, Taller Truck
  • To determine the amount of drop you would need would be pretty easy. You will need to measure from the top of the hitch opening on your 2016 Ram 2500 to the ground and then compare that dimension to the distance from the bottom of the coupler on your trailer to the ground when level. The difference between those two dimensions is the drop you would need. The part # RP54998 that you referenced can do a drop of 2-3/4 inches so it most likely wouldn't be enough, but the # RP3215 would give...

  • Will The Reese Weight Distribution Shank Allow Low Enough Drop And Level Truck and Trailer
  • The item you selected, Reese Weight Distribution Shank, part # RP63971 does have a lower drop than part # RP54970, but you will need to measure to determine which shank you will need for your towing setup. To do this, there are a few steps involved. First, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of the receiver on your trailer hitch. Then, while your trailer is not connected to the vehicle and is on level ground, measure from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler. Now...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank With a 6-8 Inch Drop
  • The Reese shank # RP54970 you referenced is designed to work with round-bar or trunnion-bar weight-distribution but will only have a 2-inch drop. What I recommend is the Reese shank # RP3215. It has a 10-1/4 inch rise and 6-3/4 inch drop when used with round-bar systems. On the other hand, we currently offer a shank # RP3344 that has a 8-5/8 inch drop when used with a round-bar system. It is our maximum drop shank we carry at this time. You are unable use this shank in the rise position...

  • 8 inch Drop Shank Recommendation for Reese Weight Distribution System
  • The Reese Strait-Line system part # RP66074 that you referenced would do great for a setup that has a 1,000 lb tongue weight as it has a tongue weight range of 600 lbs - 1,200 lbs and features the only sway control on the market designed to help prevent sway before it starts. For a shank that will let you do 8 inches of drop you would want the part # RP3344.

  • Is Shank Compatible with Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
  • Yes the Reese Weight Distribution Shank - Drop Only # RP3344 is compatible with the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66084. This shank, when used with a trunnion bar system like the aforementioned Strait-Line will give you a minimum drop of 6-3/8" and a maximum drop of 7-5/8". I have added a link to a video review of this shank for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation for a Weight Distribution Shank With a Long Drop for a Lifted Truck
  • The type of shank you should use depends on the weight distribution system you have. The Curt Weight Distribution Shank, # 17120, is a 2 inch square shank and works with with Curt Heavy Duty Trunnion Style weight distribution systems. It has hole spacing of 1-1/4 inches, center to center. Reese shanks also have a hole spacing of 1-1/4 inches, center to center. The best option, however, is to get a shank specifically designed for your weight distribution system. For a Reese WD system,...

  • How to Determine the Correct Drop for a Weight Distribution Shank
  • I have attached a help article on how to determine the rise or drop you need for a ball mount. Basically, you will want to park your truck and trailer on flat ground. First, measure from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver opening. Next, measure from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler. If the trailer hitch receiver opening is taller than the bottom of the trailer coupler, then the difference between the two measurements is the amount of drop you will need in...

  • Replacement Shank with Drop for a Weight Distribution Systemon a Truck with a 6 Inch Lift
  • You didn't say how much drop you need the shank to be. I attached an article to help you measure to determine it. I've also linked our selection of shanks that fit a 2 inch hitch receiver. Nearly all weight distribution systems can use a shank made by other manufacturers. The largest drop we have for a trunnion bar system is 7-5/8 inches, part # RP3344. It's 11 inches long and rated up to 1,400 pounds of tongue weight. The next closes is the Curt # C17124 that's a little longer...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Shank Recommendations for a 2010 GMC Yukon XL
  • Since you have a Reese weight distribution system I would recommend you stick with a Reese shank as a replacement since the Fastway e2 Shank # FA92-02-4315 has not been tested with Reese weight distribution systems. Since you need about 6-1/2 inches of drop you could get the Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3215 if you have a round bar setup. This shank provides 6-3/4 inches of drop when used in a round bar setup. If you have a trunnion setup you could get a Reese Weight Dist Shank...

  • Can a Reese Weight Distribution Shank be Used with a Curt Weight Distribution Head
  • In terms of compatibility, it depends on which components of a weight distribution system you are referring to. For example, Curt spring bars will not fit in a Reese head nor will Reese bars fit in a Curt head. But, if you are talking about the shank, a Curt or Reese head will fit each others shank. The holes on a Reese shank, # RP3344, are spaced the same as those on a Curt shank; 1-1/4 inches on center.

  • Choosing Weight Distribution Shank with the Correct Rise or Drop
  • To choose the correct rise/drop needed for weight distribution shank, you will need to determine the height of the trailer coupler when it is level. If the top of the trailer hitch receiver is higher than this measurement (which is most likely the case with your Suburban) you will need a shank that offers a drop equal to the difference. I have linked to a help article that shows how to measure for the rise or drop needed, as well as link to a video showing how to measure for a weight...

  • Weight Distribution for a Lifted 2016 Ram 2500 with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch and 5000 Pound Trailer
  • based on the tongue weight of the trailer and the fact that the bed will be empty when towing with your 2016 Ram 2500 the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution system # FA92-00-0800 is an excellent choice. There are other shanks available separately. Since you have a 2-1/2 inch hitch you can use a 2-1/2 inch shank # EQ90-02-4900 which has up to 6 inches of drop. This is the most amount of drop offered for a 2-1/2 inch weight distribution shank. Another option is to use a reducer sleeve...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Shank # RP3344 Recommendation for a 2001 Dodge 2500 Quad Cab
  • Since you need about 11 inches of drop the Reese Weight Dist Shank # RP3344 that you referenced would be a good choice for you as it has 11 inches of drop. I attached a review video on how to measure for the right amount of drop with a weight distribution system. I also attached an FAQ article on weight distribution systems for you to check out.

  • Recommendation on a WD Shank That Will Give the Most Rise or Drop Adjustment
  • Either one of the weight distribution shanks, Reese # RP3344 or Curt # C17123, will fit the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion, # RP66559, that you referenced. However to get the 8 inch drop that you need for your application, I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Shank, # EQ90-02-4400. This shank will give you a max drop of 9 inches. The shank has a tongue weight capacity of 1,400 lbs and has an incremental adjustment of 1-1/4 inches.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System and Shank with About 8 Inches of Drop
  • The Reese Strait-Line # RP66074 is likely a good choice for your trailer but you need to find out its loaded tongue weight to be sure. You want the system you choose to be rated for the trailer's loaded tongue weight added to the amount of weight stored behind your tow vehicle's rear axle. The Strait-Line is rated from 600 to 1,200 pounds so it's likely to be in the middle or towards the higher end of that range. A 2-5/16 inch hitch ball to use with the Stait-Line is # 19286. Or use...

  • Is Drop Shank Needed with 2017 Dodge Ram 2500 Towing with Pro Series WD System PS49903
  • Whether or not you need a longer drop shank with your Pro Series weight distribution system part # PS49903 depends on your trailer more than anything. You need to determine how much drop you need and compare that to what the # PS49903 is capable of. This system can do a drop of up to 2 inches. Measure from the top of your hitch opening on your truck down to the ground and then measure from the bottom lip of your coupler down to the ground when it's level. If that distance difference...

  • Weight Distribution Shank Doesn't Have Enough Drop To Tow Trailer Level
  • How much is the drop on the weight distribution shank you are using now? We may have one that offers more drop. If not the only other option is to raise the height of the trailer. To do this the leaf spring stack must be below the axle(s) and they must be double eye leaf springs. We have 2 conversion kits that will allow you to move the spring stacks to the top of the axle. Use # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8 inch diameter round axles or # K71-385-00 for 3 inch diameter round axles. One kit will...

  • Can 2 Inch Weight Distribution Shank be Used in 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2016 Ram 2500
  • To use the Reese weight distribution shank # RP3344 in a 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver I recommend the use of reducer sleeve # C45405. I have spoken with Reese about this before and the use of a reducer sleeve with weight distribution is acceptable.
