  • Weight Distribution Installation for Pole Tongue Boat Trailer Towed by 2005 Ford F-150
    Thank you for the photo of your truck and hitched boat trailer. There are a couple of things to keep in mind concerning tongue weights (TW) in your setup. First, typically a boat trailer can have low-ish TW due to the rear-positioned motor's weight lifting the trailer tongue. When placing tanks, toys and other items in the boat for transport you want to do so such that you can maintain a suitable amount of TW, 10 to 15-percent of the boat/trailer combined gross weight. Scale # 5780 makes...

  • Recommended Pole Tongue Adapter and Weight Distribution for V-Nose Trailer
    For your pole tongue trailer, I recommend the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems # RP58393 as long as the trailer manufacturer allows weight distribution systems on the aluminum frame. I've attached the dimensions to assist so you can ensure a fit for your trailer jack. Then based on your GVWR, I recommend the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control - Trunnion # RP66560 which will work with total loaded tongue weights between 600 and 1200 lbs....

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System on a Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes
    To choose the properly rated weight distribution system for a given trailer, knowing the trailer's as-towed tongue weight is important, as that's how the systems are classified. To choose a system, use the provided link, and click the filter on the left side of the page that's closest to the fully loaded weight of your boat trailer. Then, choose the filter for surge brake compatible and you'll be shown the available systems in the correct weight capacity that will work with surge...

  • Can Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter be Used on an Aluminum Trailer
    The only restriction that the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter # RP58393 has is that it can't be used with swing-away couplers. Since your trailer has an aluminum frame you're going to want to reach out to your trailer manufacturer to make sure they approve this kind of an adapter and a weight distribution system being used on that trailer frame.

  • Will the Reese Pole Tongue Adapter Work on my Load Rite Elite Trailer
    Yes the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems part # RP58393 can be used on your Load Rite Elite trailers tongue. This allows you to connect the weight distribution and sway control systems. I really like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution w/ 4-Point Sway Control Systems like part # EQ37061ET. To determine which weight distribution you need the tongue weight is the most important measurement. I have linked an article explaining how to get an accurate reading of...

  • Weight Distribution System for Boat Trailer with Boat Weighing around 13,000 lbs
    Weight Distribution on a boat trailer is possible, but not as easy to find options. There aren't many options as the pole tongue system doesn't allow for much distribution. There are parts like the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems # RP58393 or the Pole-Tongue Adapter for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems, # EQ95-01-5950, that provide properly spaced mounting points for the sway control brackets of the system. You mentioned liking the Reese SC Weight...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for a Pole Tongue Adapter and Boat Trailer
    I spoke with my contact at Reese and I do have a solution that would work for you. First, he did state that the Reese 350 Mini-Lite Weight Distribution System would not work with the Pole Tongue Adapter, # RP58393 because the pole tongue adapter does not have a long enough mounting surface to properly install the system. Instead, I recommend going with the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System, # 66557, for a couple of reasons. First, this system will work with the pole tongue...

  • How to Install a Weight Distribution System on a Straight Tongue Boat Trailer
    What you need for your boat trailer is a pole tongue adapter like part # RP58393. This product is designed to work on trailers with straight tongues just like your boat trailer. I attached a picture of what it looks like installed.

  • Pole Tongue Adapter for Boat Trailer so that Weight Distribution Can Be Used
    The adapter that you would need would be the pole tongue adapter part # RP58393 to be able to use a weight distribution system with your setup. Since your vehicle requires the use of a WD system to tow a trailer as heavy as yours the only option I can make for you would be to relocate the items on your trailer frame that are currently in the way as they do not make longer spring bar weight distribution systems. They are all right at 30 inches in length.

  • Using a Weight Distribution System on a Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes
    I contacted Venture Trailers Inc. and found that the reason they do not recommend the use of a weight distribution system is because most weight distribution systems are not recommended for trailers with surge brakes because they do not allow the coupler to push into the coupler housing and engaging the brakes. Also due to the fact that they do apply additional stress on the tongue of the trailer like you said and this can be particularly harmful to aluminum frame trailers. There are...

  • Can Weight Distribution be Used on Aluminum Boat Trailer with 2013 Infiniti QX56
    So there are a couple of things to look at for your situation. First, boat trailer tongue weights are often lower than travel trailers or utility trailers of the same gross weight. This is because the motors at the backs of boats are the heavy and lower the weight at the front. Typically tongue weight is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. But on a boat trailer it can be less. Also, if you have cargo loaded behind the rear axle of your Infiniti QX56 that can make the tongue...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation For a Pole Tongue Snowmobile Trailer
    The first factor that we will want to check is how much room is available on your pole tongue. To use weight distribution with a pole tongue, you will need a pole tongue adapter. Our best option is the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter, # RP58393, because it requires the least amount of tongue space. This adapter must mount at least 29 inches back from the center of the ball coupler on your trailer. If you do not have 29 inches available, then there are no adapters available and at that point we...

    You can use a weight distribution system with your trailer with a pole tongue. You need an adapter part # RP58393. This adapter allows you to attach a weight distribution system.

  • What Causes Intense Trailer Sway at a Certain Speed
    The type of sway you are describing is not going to be fixed by a weight distribution system. You either do not have enough tongue weight forward in the trailer, your suspension is worn out, or your trailer isn't sitting level. Weight distribution systems will help with sway induced by large gusts of wind or passing semi-trucks but not persistent sway that start when getting up to a certain speed. Also nearly all aluminum trailers aren't rated for weight distribution per the manufacturer...
