Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution RP58167 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number RP58167, this the Reese replacement head for Reese weight distribution systems with trunnion bars. It's going to feature the forged raised ball platform here at this portion. That's going to eliminate the need for a raised hitch ball. You're going to get all the mounting hardware and the serrated washers. The serrated washers are great to have because they actually allow the head to pivot without having to add any additional spacers or washers to the unit. You're going to get the two large bolts, you're going to get the two serrated spacers, you're going to get the spacer here in the middle and you're going to get the lock washers and the nuts.

It is completely set up and ready to be put right on to a shank that is made for weight distribution. Well take a measurement of the ball hole diameter, it's going to give us a measurement of an inch and a quarter so this is designed for hitch balls with an inch and a quarter shank in diameter. It's made from a solid steel construction with a black powder coated finish on it so it is going to stand up really well against rust and corrosion. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RP58167. This is the replacement head for Reese weight distribution system with trunnion bars. .

etraler is the best ,the best customer service in the industry this from areal customer,if you don’t believe me look at their tutorials. Order something from them and see and I’ll bet you’ll be happy with them.

Correct part, easy ordering and fast shipping. Came with all new hardware and instructions for hitch setup. I would give it a five star review, but it didn't come with a shim which I thought would be part of the hardware. Had to find that separately.

First of all the product was perfect. I made a mistake and ordered the wrong one and Troy was amazing. Since I was busy he worked with my wife to get my mess worked out and helped us a ton. etrailer is a great company and I will be working with them for all my trailer needs in the future. Thank you Troy and staff at etrailer!!

Reese replacement head looks good, won't be able to install because of the weather here in Michigan. Replacement for Reese Head that is showing wear after a couple years of use, would rather replace the part than have it fail while traveling.



- RP58167
by:

It is good to be able to replace only the parts that are worn without having to buy the entire new system. Good idea to keep the trunnions greased but also to clean it up once in a while and check the wear.

Replaced my 10 year old one that had a ear piece broke off.

Worked as it should. I got it to replace the older style head that the little latches were all bent up. This head does not have those latches and it works better.

We liked the results of how well the Reese weight distribution and sway control system so much that we went ahead and ordered the parts needed to set up a second vehicle to tow the same trailer. Reese and etrailer.com have made preparing for and towing the race car hauler a breeze! We couldn't ask for a better combination...

The initial review matches how we feel about it now... We couldnt ask for a better combination!

Finally got around to installing new hitch equipment. The new shank and Reese head worked out to be a fine combination for my 2018 Ram 2500. The longer shank was what I needed for my camper. Great parts and a great price and fast delivery. thanks a lot. Mike B. Northwood Ohio


Comments
Excellent! Just about ready to start using the camper again this year. The hitch equipment I bought will be put to good use again. I am well satisfied with the quality and the price I paid. Thanks again.

Used this hitch all last summer. Works as advertised. Good quality. Has slightly different openings on the underside of the top that the bars angle in to (they go in at a different angle than may old hitch), but it works the same, tomato, tamato! I would definitly recomend this product.


Comments
After a year the hitch is working out great!

Greg Was very helpful in finding the difficult replacement part I was looking for. Thank you, Greg S

This was the replacement for the ball mount for the Reese Weight Distribution System I purchased about five years ago. The original ball mount had excessive wear (probably because I didn't know it needed to be lubricated each day while it was being used). This ball mount is exactly the same as the original. I also ordered the replacement bolts and washers (58207) because I didn't understand that the replacement ball mount included all new washers and bolts so these were not needed. etrailer has sent me a return authorization for the bolt and washer kit.



- RP58167
by:

Great job on all the videos and Q&A posts! Thank you. They gave a good understanding of what I needed and why. The only issue I have with this head is the tight quarters to tighten the nut for the 1 1/4 shank hole. The nut is a 1 7/8 which is not a common wrench or socket a person has around. Even with the included spacer and a 1" shank ball, the nut is still 1 7/16. A socket, I think, is required as the space in the head is tight. I took the head to a local semi garage and they had the socket to torque the hitch ball nut. Other than that, it is a good solid unit.

This was not my first etrailer purchase nor will it be my last. I needed to replace the hitch head of my Reese Straight-line Trunnion hitch (ofvwhich im a huge fan) after 15+ years of use. etrailer ‘s information and price couldn’t be beat. Throw in quick service and free shipping and it was a no-brainer. They are one of the best companies I’ve ever dealt with.



- RP58167
by:

Good parts and good service. Thanks



- RP58167
by:

Good quality part, very sturdy construction and all seems to work very well. My only word of advice is there is a good possibility that the very first time you go to insert the trunnion bars to the head, they will be VERY tight and you'll have to use much more force than normal. My only guess is the powder coating took up some of the small tolerance there and you have to get that to wear just a tad first because now after inserting/removing several times everything works nice and easy. Everything else worked really well and seems like a quality piece. My only other note would be that you won't be able to fit an adjustable wrench on the ball nut to tighten down the ball with how the head is designed, you'll either need a socket or a box wrench , or at least that was my case with using a 2-5/16" ball with a 1-1/4" shank.

This W/D head has performed perfectly over the past year. At first, I had mistakenly ordered the wrong head. With the help of etrailers technical support representatives, we chose this model to meet my needs. I have never second guessed that decision. I have complete confidence when towing with this.

You can count on Reese trailer equipment for what ever you haul. This is a replacement for my hitch which was stolen, and it also was a Reese so it seems to be the preferred hitch.

  • Reese Weight Distribution Head to use With Trunnion 21210 Bars
    I reached out to Reese for you, and while we do have a solution, they told me you would not be able to use the Reese Pro Series RB2 Weight Distribution Head # 58333. What they said you could use is the Replacement Head for Reese Weight Distribution System - Trunnion Bar # RP58167. They told me that this will fit all Reese trunnion bars, including the older ones, though it is possible that the older-style bars like you have may be a "little loose" in fit, though they will still work.

  • Are Replacement Trunnion Bars 22210 Available For Reese Weight Distribution System
    We've seen this before with these Reese bars with the part 22210 on them and the bars are not available as replacement parts any more, so the only alternative would be replacing the weight distribution system. We've determined based off of some previous neighbors that the current equivalent to your old system in terms of style and weight capacity is the Reese Weight Distribution System # RP66021. This 10K system is good for total tongue weights between 400 and 800 pounds and it will do...

I spoke with my contact at Reese and they told me that this replacement head is rated for weight distribution systems up to 1,700 lbs tongue weight and 17,000 lbs towing weight.

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Head for 18 Year-Old Reese Trunnion Spring Bars
    The weight distribution heads and the trunnions on the spring bars have gone through several evolutionary changes over the years, so the # RP58167 almost certainly wouldn't be compatible with spring bars that are 18 years old. However, I can get try to get some confirmation or attempt to find something compatible if you could provide the part numbers from your existing spring bars. If you can't find any numbers on your bars, honestly your best course of action would be to go with a new...

  • Replacement Reese Hitch Head For Old 55520-6 Head
    The head and spring bars that you are referencing have not been in production for about 30 years. Reese no longer carries replacement parts for for your system. I would recommend replacing your head with the Reese # RP58167 head unit and for spring bars I recommend the Reese # RP66009 replacement spring bar with 1200 pounds of tongue weight capacity. These together will get you updated to new parts that you can depend upon.

    It sounds like you are looking for the head and shank to a weight distribution system. If this is the case then we have several for you to choose from. However, they are not universal so I would need to know which system you have in order to make sure you get the correct replacement. If there are any part numbers on the spring bars or frame brackets then please send them to me but if not, a photo of the unit would also be very helpful.

    What I think you are asking about is replacement parts for a Reese Weight Distribution System. The Reese and Draw-Tite products are manufactured by the same parent company so depending on what site you are looking at you may have part numbers or images that show a different company name. If you need a replacement head for a Reese Weight Distribution System, - Trunnion Bar, we have # RP58167. Please note the product review video that is attached.

  • Replacement Spring Bar and Head Recommendation for 1,200 lb Draw Tite Weight Distribution
    I wish we had replacement parts that would work, but the bars you have aren't compatible with the current bar designs made so it's going to come down to you replacing the head and the bars. So for bars you would need the part # RP66009 which has the 1,200 lb capacity you need and then for a head you would want the part # RP58167.

If this is indeed the system you have, the replacement head and shank are still available as part # RP54980. The shank provided has a 6-1/2 inch rise or 1-1/4 inch drop when used with trunnion type bars (like the Reese SC used). If you need a different rise/drop, I've linked you to the rest...

You are correct that they both accept 1-1/8 inch trunnion bars, but they have a difference of 8 degrees in angle so they are not compatible with the same head according to my tech contact at Reese.

    Based on your photo, it appears you have the dual cam system of the Reese Strait-Line. I researched your trailer to find a GVWR of 5895. Based on this, we can make some calculated assumptions on the tongue weight. The tongue weight of a trailer is typically 10 to 15%, so that would put you at 590 to 885 lbs. That will make the correct system the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control # RP66084. For the replacement parts you will want the following: Replacement Head...
