Great product , I had a problem with not enough room for my regular snap up chain , found these online and it works great when your batterybox is in the way .

No issues after 1 yr of use

Recently purchased a Keystone Cougar 30FKV travel trailer and discovered that the Reese Pro hitch chain hangers would not work under the v-nose. Not enough clearance to 'snap-up'' the chains. I'net research turned up E-Trailer as the only supplier of these hangers. Tho pricey, they were ordered easily and delivered on time. Chunky, well made, with hardware, easily installed, it looks like the solution for the problem As in other reviews; NOTE that you must jack up the tow and trailer to properly load your equalizers using these fixed chain hangers. BE SURE YOUR TONGUE JACK IS CAPABLE OF DOING THIS !!

- RP58306

Heavy made. Didn't have room for the chain lifts because of the placement of the gas bottles and this worked out perfect, no welding to do. Used on a 17 foot Casita fiberglass camper trailer.

Still working great, have used many miles.

The customer service is outstanding. I was unsure what to buy for my application. Upon asking I was sent the parts number and web page to buy this part. You folks will be the first company I go to for any future purchases thank you

- RP58306

This product was the primary item in my purchase, and they bolted up to my trailer in about 10 minutes. Heavy duty shackles seem like they will work just fine.

- RP58306

well built ;fit our trailer frame they should work great

  • Solution for a Reese Weight Distribution System Brackets Where Above Frame Clearance is Limited
    It sounds like you are looking for a way to attach Reese weight distribution frame brackets to the side of a trailer frame where there isn't clearance above the frame to allow the # RP58306 to attach. For that situation we have the part # RP58305 which gives you a set of brackets that you can attach to the side of the trailer frame by bolting directly to the side of the frame. I attached a picture that shows how this would attach on a trailer that has a toolbox above the frame.

  • Will Reese Clamp-on Chain Hangers # RP58306 Fit a 2 Inch x 5 Inch Trailer Frame
    On a trailer frame that is 2 inches thick and 5 inches tall, the Reese clamp-on chain hangers, # RP58306, will fit. The brackets fit a frame up to 6-1/2 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches wide. With an aluminum trailer frame, you will need to consult the trailer manufacturer to determine if weight distribution can be used.

  • Reese Chain Hanger for Weight Distribution Systems Installation Options
    I spoke with my contact at Reese and he informed me that the way you set up your weight distribution system with the Chain Hangers # RP58306 is perfectly fine. He said that every trailer will have slight differences between them and since you are at 32 inches and the recommendation is approximately 31 inches you are fine. He also said that having to use 6 links on the chain is fine as well. He said you will just not want to go with less than 5 inches as a rule of thumb. I attached...

  • Can Reese Chain Hangers Work with a Curt Weight Distribution System
    Yes, you could use Reese chain hanger brackets # RP58306 with a Curt weight distribution system. Curt does have a set of skinny brackets # C17508 but they are specifically for the TruTrack systems and there is no where to hang chains.

  • Can The Friction Pads On the Reese SC Weight Distribution System Be Swapped Out For a New Style
    Yes, you can switch from the friction style pads on the Reese SC Weight Distribution System to the chain hanger style using the Chain Hangers for Reese Weight Distribution Systems part # RP58306 and Reese Replacement Weight Distribution Chain Kit part # 3216. This would be the only option I have to change styles.

  • Solution for Reese SC Weight Distribution Trunnion Bar Needing Replacement
    Thank you for all of the pictures. I do have a solution for you but when I reached out to my contact at Reese he said that you have the older SC weight distribution (WD) system and there aren't any replacement bars that will fit your application. The Pro Series trunnion bars have a different attachment configuration which keeps them from being interchangeable with the Reese systems. For your setup you either need to replace the entire WD system or you can use the Replacement Trunnion...

  • Replacement Brackets for EZ Lift Weight Distribution System Chains
    The Replacement Frame Brackets for Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control # C17508 will work with only the Curt TruTrack systems. If you have the EAZ Lift brackets for a chain system, then you will need to use the Chain Hangers for Reese Weight Distribution Systems - Clamp On # RP58306 or bolt on hangers like # C17005. If you have the trunnion or round bars with integrated sway control then we don't have anything that is compatible with your brand of system.

  • Selecting Weight Distribution System for 2009 Featherlite 24-Foot Enclosed Car Hauler Trailer
    First, thank you for your brake controller and harness purchase from etrailer last year. We appreciate you coming back to us. Thank you also for providing useful details about your towing set up. Some aluminum trailers cannot be used with WD so I recommend confirming compatibility with the trailer manufacturer. The key to selecting a weight distribution system is knowing your trailer's loaded tongue weight. In your case of a car hauler this can be a little trickier since exactly where...

  • Can Weight Distribution Chains Hang at an Angle or Do They Have to be Straight Up and Down
    Ideally, you would want the chains to be straight up and down. A slight angle is permissible. What I recommend is to change the chain hanger type being used. There are 2 options. First we have a type that bolts to the side of the trailer frame, # RP58305. The other type is a skinny bracket that fits around the frame (up to 6-1/2 inches tall and 2-3/4 inches wide), # RP58306. With either set up you would need to use the trailer jack to jack up the trail and vehicle to achieve the required...

  • Availability of Bolt On Chain Hangers for an EAZ-lift Weight Distribution System
    From what I could find online it looks like the clamps you are talking about for your EAZ-lift Weight Distribution (WD) system are similar to the Reese Lift Brackets # RP6637. For this application we do have the bolt on Chain Hangers # RP58305 for when there are clearance issues on the top of the trailer frame. For your C-channel frame I recommend using the clamp on chain hangers like part # RP58306 and putting a piece of wood in the C-channel to give the bracket some extra support. Please...

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution System Chain Hanger Recommendations for Reese Weight Distribution System
    Yes, you'll want to use Reese brand frame brackets when you go to install your weight distribution system. Most likely you need chain hangers like the # RP58306 or if you have clearance issues above the frame on your trailer you can use the bolt on style brackets like part # RP58305.

  • How to Install Weight Distribution Brackets on Trailer Frame That Has Cross Tube Near A-Frame
    Sometimes trailer frame designs like yours or the presence of propane tanks or other tongue-mounted accessory items on a trailer can interfere with installation of the chain lift brackets for a WD system like the ProSeries # 49570. Reese, the sister company to ProSeries, offers a simple solution for this issue, their bolt-on chain lift brackets # RP58305. These bolt to the outside edges of the two frame rails and so they will not interfere with your trailer's square cross tube. Another...

  • Chain Hangers for use With Reese Weight Distribution
    There are a pair of options when choosing chain hangers for your Reese Titan Weight Distribution System # RP66006. The bolt-on chain hangers are # RP58305, but if you prefer not to drill you can use the clamp-on chain hangers, # RP58306. For snap-up brackets you would want to use the Replacement Lift Brackets with Handle for Reese Weight Distribution Systems # RP6637, or the Replacement Heavy Duty Snap-Up Bracket for Reese Weight Distribution Systems # 58392.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 24-Foot V-Nose Trailer with Limited Clearance
    You want to choose a weight distribution (WD) system so that your trailer's fully-loaded tongue weight (TW) plus the weight of anything in the truck that sits behind the rear axle, like a generator or loaded cooler, falls into the middle of its operating range. Say your loaded TW is 1000-lbs and you have a 100-lb generator in the back of the truck; in this case you'll want a system like the Reese Strait-Line # RP66130 that is rated for TW from 800- to 1500-lbs. You can refer to the linked...

  • Replacement Chains and Chain Hanger for Reese Weight Distribution System
    The part number you listed of # RP54970 is just the shank of a Reese weight distribution system. This shank can fit basically all Reese weight distribution systems so with just knowing that it's hard for me to determine exactly which kit you have. That said the chain kit part # 3216 fits all of the Reese kits that use chain hangers so it will work well for you. For chain hangers you can use the part # RP6637 for a clamp on style, or if you have clearance issues above the trailer frame...

  • Steadi-Flex vs Strait-Line Weight Distribution for a Dump Trailer with Varying Weight
    Yes, you will need to adjust your weight distribution (WD) system depending on how much total tongue weight you have. If you have a system that is rated too high then your towing setup will be too stiff. Out of the Steadi-Flex # RP66560 and the Strait-Line # RP66074 you are correct that the Strait-Line will be the easier of the 2 to adjust. They both have similar head adjustment options but when it comes to the arms it is much easier to adjust chain length and the bolts on the dual...

  • Weight Distribution Alternatives for 8500 lb Travel Trailer w/ 940lb Unloaded Tongue Weight
    Although the # RP58306 clamps I recommended would allow you to retain your existing Dual-Cam system, a Reese SC system could be a good choice as well. The sway control portion of the SC works almost but not quite as well as the Dual-Cam you're currently using, but it still works very well. The # RP66560 is rated for tongue weights ranging from 500-1200 lbs and might be a good choice for you, depending on the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your TT. Keep in mind that any...

  • Weight Distribution System for 2003 Coleman Fleetwood Camper Towed by 2005 Toyota Sienna
    First, you will want to ensure your Sienna's hitch is a 2-inch Class III type that is rated for use with weight distribution; this will be indicated on the hitch safety/warning sticker. For example, Curt hitch # C13105 has this capability. Next you will want to measure your camper's fully-loaded tongue weight when it is stocked with all gear and supplies and ready to tow. To this you will add the weight of anything in the tow vehicle placed behind the rear axle, such as a loaded cooler....

  • Different Chain hanging Brackets for Weight Distribution on a V-Nose Trailer
    What I recommend is to use some chain hangers that bolt to the side of the trailer frame, # RP58305. This method should provide you with brackets that are easier to install when compared to the regular brackets that might require trailer modification to properly install. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. Other option, if there is any free space where the brackets need to go, is chain hangers with skinny brackets, # RP58306. The thin brackets are more versatile...

  • Availability of Weight Distribution System With Chain Hangers That Clamp to Trailer Frame
    If you can confirm that your fully loaded and ready to tow trailer tongue weight is below 1000 lbs, Curt offers their TruTrack Weight Distribution system, part # C17500. This being said, I have a solution that would allow you to continue using your Strait-Line Weight Distribution System. You can simply replace the chain hangers for part # RP58306 which is a clamp-on hanger. When using the clamp on hanger, you'll need to use the trailer jack to put slack into the system for installing...

  • Replacment Chain Hangers for EAZ Lift Weight Distribution System
    I have a solution for your EAZ Lift weight distribution hitch to replace the brackets for a chain system. I recommend using either the Chain Hangers for Reese Weight Distribution Systems - Clamp On # RP58306 or bolt on hangers like # C17005. Both of these will work for your system and are not rated for a specific weight capacity, so they'll be fine with your 10k system.

  • Compatibility of Reese Weight Distribution Chain Brackets with Trailer Having Tool Box in A-Frame
    The chain lift brackets in the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66084 mount to your trailer frame about 30-inches back from hitch ball and the brackets themselves measure approximately 5-1/2-inches wide. If your trailer frame does not have enough available space to mount these supplied brackets you can instead use Reese part # RP58305 which bolts on to the side of your trailer frame using included hardware (2 bolt lengths are supplied to enable a good fit on various frame...
