Very easy hook-up, no problems with unit. Balances trailer weight wonderfully. Smooth, even when turning. Also dampens sway of trailer. 450516

This product worked great for me. I had mounted a small generator on the front not making the regular flip chain connectors work. The best way to use this product is with a electric tongue jack. Connect the hitch raise the back of the truck to connect the chains then lower to put the tension on the bars. Easy as pie just make sure if you are buying a jack to get a higher rated one. Highly recommended 399082

This product will not fit up with a Curt Weight DIstribution System with Shank - Trunnion Bar (#c17345). It's hook will not accept the chain. It is too big. Fast Shipping, just wrong part suggested by etrailer expert. 378064

This hook operates as expected. No issues installing if what you're installing it to is appropriate. Comes with long and short screws, so it works on hollow beams and C channel frame members at the front of your trailer. Can't comment on the durability of the finish, as I keep installing these on rental campers and never see them again! Well, we all know Reese and the hitch industry overall has significant corrosion issues they just seem to ignore over the decades - their process isn't up to par in my book. That said, the finish seems thick enough and the steel is so thick that rust in this case will be only an optical issue. I like the fact that they are delivered with nylock nuts. I spray the drilled holes (both sides) with aerosol grease before a bolt everything up, to prevent rust on the frame once THAT finish is broken open. Then I hit the fasteners too, to prevent rust. I'm a repeat purchaser, and from experience believe strongly in weight distribution hitches even on small travel trailers, it's just SO much more stable. 277408

The product was well priced and delivery was very fast (3 days) I was unable to find any other product anywhere that would work for my setup. Every trailer store I contacted had no idea where to direct me as they knew of no product on the market that would work. I have a V-Cross 32FKDS. Because of the V nose I am unable to use the traditional load level system. the V extends all the way to the trailer jack. I bought the trailer new and had it delivered to a seasonal lot in 2010 where it has remained. We are looking at moving to a different campground and delivery was $250-$350. For the price this seemed well worth a try. I am hoping once this product is installed it will keep the trailer and my 3/4 ton level for towing. 219298

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer with 1,400 lb Tongue Weight and I-Beam Frame
    To install a weight distribution system on an I-beam trailer requires you to take the trailer to a welder to have them box the I-beam frame where you'll need to install the weight distribution brackets. This gives the brackets something they can attach to. For brackets then we have the part # RP58305. Then for a weight distribution rated for a trailer with 1,400 lbs of tongue weight we have the Reese system part # RP66131. For a hitch ball then you'd want the # 19286 and for a shank...

  • Cannot Keep Trailer Straight with Any Crosswind or Road Fluctuation While Using Equalizer Hitch
    The bars on a weight distribution system should be parallel with the trailer's frame or at a greater downward angle and the chains should be pretty close to vertical. If the location of the propane tank bracket interferes with the correct mounting locations for the chain hangers on the weight distribution system, I recommend using the Reese Bolt-On Chain Hangers, # RP58305. These chain hangers provide attachment points that are specially designed to eliminate clearance problems by attaching...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for V-Nose Trailer
    I have a great solution for using a weight distribution system with your new V-nose cargo trailer. I recommend using the Reese Chain Hangers # RP58305 with the weight distribution system you choose. These brackets can either be bolted onto or welded to the exterior of your trailer's frame and are compatible with any chain hanger style weight distribution system. Weight distribution system chain hangers typically will need to be above the frame member on the trailer, however this kit...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Rockwood 2516G with 400 lb Tongue Weight
    Looks like the front of your trailer does have quite a bit of accessories mounted at the front of it so a bolt-on frame bracket style of system is going to be the easiest for us to recommend. The Reese brackets part # RP58305 would be a great solution for this with a Reese weight distribution system part # RP66540 would be a fantastic option. This kit has a tongue weight range of 200-600 lb which would work great with your 400 lbs of tongue weight. For a 2 inch ball you would want...

  • How To Unhook Chains When Using Reese Weight Distribution Chain Hangers # RP58305
    Unhooking the chains on Reese Weight Distribution Chain Hangers, part # RP58305, has not been a problem for us. We have not had many problems with unhooking the chains, only questions on the proper procedure to removing the chains. The # RP58305 chain hangars do not work the same way as the lift up brackets. The important things to remember when unhooking these chains is to keep more weight on the jack when jacking up the trailer and to make sure the truck and trailer are in a straight...

  • Weight Distribution Solution for V-Nose Trailer
    There is a way for you to use a weight distribution system with a V-nose trailer, it will require chain hangers # RP58305 which can be bolted or welded on to the side of your Featherlite. As for the system itself, I strongly recommend the Reese Strait-Line, such as # RP66084, though you will need to find the correctly rated system. In order to choose the best weight distribution system, you will first need to know your total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully...

  • How to Mount Weight Distribution Chain Lift Brackets on Trailer with Crossbeam

Reese offers a set of chain hangers that bolt on to the sides of your trailer frame, part # RP58305. These chain hangers include extra installation hardware to provide a good fit on various sizes of trailer frame. Please refer to the linked photo for illustration.

  • Can Weight Distribution Be Used on an Aluminum Car Hauler Trailer
    You should not have any issues using weight distribution with your aluminum trailer, but you will want to check with the trailer manufacturer to be certain. My contact at Reese has stated that as long as the trailer manufacturer says it's ok then their systems would work well on aluminum trailers. Since you have a tool box above the frame on your trailer you will need to use bolt on brackets, part # RP58305 since you do not have clearance above the frame for the standard chain hangers. The...

  • Weight Distribution System for 2012 Ford F-150 Hauling V-Nose Trailer
    There is a solution for you to add a weight distribution hitch to your 2012 Ford F-150 so you can tow your 2018 Look Element v-nose. What you can do is add chain hangers # RP58305 to your weight distribution system to add an attachment point for your spring bars. I recommend the Reese Strait-Line # RP66084, which has a total tongue weight capacity between 700 lbs and 1,200 lbs. You would need a hitch ball for this system, either # A-90 for a 2" ball or # 19286 for a 2-5/16" ball. I've...

    For a V-nose trailer you have to use frame hangers that bolt to the side of the trailer frame. For that we have the part # RP58305 which is designed to work with Reese weight distribution systems. 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 tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Towing a Trailer with 270 lbs Dry Tongue Weight
    The Pro Series Trunnion Style Weight Distribution Kit # 49586 actually could very well be the correct fit for you. When you are choosing a Weight Distribution (WD) system you want to use one that has a Tongue Weight (TW) range that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your setup falls in the middle of. You can find your TTW by adding the TW of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2015 Nissan Xterra, like a cooler. Keep...

  • Where Should Reese Bolt On Chain Hangers Install on Frame of Trailer
    Reese recommends that when you install the bolt on chain hangers part # RP58305 that they sit 1/4 inch down from the top of the frame if the frame is a box frame or 1/2 inch down if it's a c-channel. It is important you follow these instructions. If you already installed them in the wrong location you should reinstall them where they need to go.

  • How to Mount Chain Hangers to Trailer with Box Above Frame
    What you'll need is a set of chain hangers that can bolt to the side of the trailer frame as they do not require clearance above it like the clamp on style does. If you have a Reese weight distribution system you'd need the part # RP58305. The Curt equivalent is the part # C17005.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2019 16 ft Bee Stock Trailer
    It is possible to install weight distribution on a trailer like yours where the nose of it goes over most of the top of the trailer frame but you have to use frame brackets that bolt onto the side of the frame to get around the clearance issue. For that you'd need the part # RP58305 so you could install a Reese weight distribution system. Since your loaded tongue weight is 500 lbs you'd want the Reese kit part # RP66540 which has a tongue weight range of 200-600 lbs.

    You are correct, the Chain Hangers for Reese Weight Distribution Systems, # RP58305, do not work the same way as the lift up brackets.

  • How Do You Attach Spring Bar Chains to Chain Hanger Brackets # RP58305
    When you use chain hangers such as # RP58305 in place of the regular weight distribution brackets you will need to use the trailer jack to mount/remove the bars. Basically you will couple the trailer to the tow vehicle then use the jack to lift up the trailer and rear end of the vehicle some. This will allow you to manually hang the spring bar chains to the brackets.
