So far so good. Had a shop install this add-on bracket for my boat trailer and it allowed me to install the appropriate wd hitch for my surge brake setup and pole tongue. 269344

  • 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.

  • Recommended Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution Hitch for Ice Castle Fish House Trailer
  • For your Ice Castle Fish House, the weight of the unit will determine what Equal-I-zer system will work best. A weight distribution system is based on the total tongue weight of the loaded trailer along with any cargo weight behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Because these trailers are fairly good sized, I'll give you a recommendation for a larger system. You want that total tongue weight to fall in the middle of the range of the system for best results. For a total tongue weight...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 3500 lb. Boat Trailer and 2015 Jeep Wrangler
  • The Curt weight distribution system # C17050 is designed for a tongue weight range of 500 to 600 pounds. If your trailer's tongue weight maxes out at 325 this system is too heavy for the trailer but no worries because there are other options that will work great with your trailer. First, you mentioned that the trailer is a boat trailer. If it has a straight pole tongue instead of an A-frame you will need to have a pole tongue adapter. If you want to use weight distribution only then...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Pole Tongue Trailer that Weighs 5,400 lbs
  • 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 for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. A system like this can be used with...

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier and Trailer Box for Small Aluminum Trailer
  • For your 2000 lb Silverwing trailer, I recommend the following accessories: For your spare tire carrier, I recommend the Fulton Hi-Mount Spare Tire Carrier - Fits 4- and 5-Lug Wheels # FSTC1000301. For your trailer dolly, I recommend the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Dual Pull Trailer Dolly - 1-7/8" Hitch Ball - Steel - 600 lbs # MT70881 because it has the pneumatic all-terrain tires and the handle and stand to make it easy to operate and store when not in use. You will need to trade out the...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank for 1,700 lb Tongue Weight Reese Trunnion Bar System
  • There is not a pole tongue adapter compatible with a system rated for 1,700 lbs. The largest option is the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems - 14,000 lbs GTW, 1,400 lbs TW # RP58393, which will work only if your total tongue weight (loaded trailer tongue weight and any cargo behind rear axle of tow vehicle) is under that 1,400 lbs. If you want a compatible weight distribution shank as systems this size often don't include, I recommend the Reese Titan Weight Distribution...

  • Weight Distribution System for 7,000 lb Trailer with Pole Tongue
  • If you have a pole tongue trailer you will need to use a pole tongue adapter like the # RP58393 to use a weight distribution system. The Husky part # HT32218 is not compatible with this adapter and Husky does not offer an adapter so you would need to go with a Reese WD system. For that the part # RP66542 would be great. This system has a tongue weight range of 600 lbs - 1,200 lbs so as long as your 7k trailer has a tongue weight of around 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight...

  • Recommended Pole Tongue Adapter And Weight Distribution For 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
  • 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. Using this pole tongue adapter does limit your towing capacity to 14,000-lbs and the tongue weight is limited to 1,400-lbs. The weight distribution system I recommend is the Reese Titan, part # RP66006. This is a trunnion bar system and is designed for 2-1/2 inch receiver openings. Since the shank and hitch...

  • Sway Control Recommendation for a Straight Tongue Trailer
  • The Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter for Weight Distribution Systems, item # RP3280, is not designed for use with a friction sway control bar like the Pro Series friction sway control kit, # 83660. The pole tongue adapter is designed for use with a weight distribution system with chain hangers. I would recommend evaluating the tongue weight of your trailer. Improper trailer loading can cause a light tongue weight condition which can be the cause of trailer sway. Proper trailer loading is the...

  • Weight Distribution for 2015 Ford Expedition XLT Towing 7000-lb Glacier Bay Boat/Trailer
  • To tow your 7000-lb Glacier Bay boat/trailer with your 2015 Ford Expedition XLT and a weight distribution (WD) set-up you will first want to confirm that the specific version of the Expedition you have, and your installed hitch, both have the required towing capacity. Towing capacity varies depending on engine and transmission. Your hitch must also be rated for use with WD; it's safety sticker will indicate this along with its specific capacities. Use of a WD system that is properly...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Boat Trailer with 800 lbs Tongue Weight and Surge Brakes
  • When picking out a weight distribution system the most important factor to consider is the loaded tongue weight which includes the the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle. Since your trailer has surge brakes you cannot use a weight distribution system with friction sway control or dual-cam sway control. Because of that I would recommend you go with a Reese Steadi-Flex weight distribution system # RP66560 rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight. You will also likely need a pole...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System Eagle 30 Foot Boat Trailer w/ Surge Brakes
  • A hydraulic brake coupler works by compressing when the tow vehicle applies its brakes. The inertia of the trailer makes the coupler compress, which actuates the brakes. Chain suspended weight distribution systems can prevent the coupler from compressing properly, which reduces the effectiveness of the trailer brakes. Reese offer a system that would work perfectly on your boat trailer. The Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution system, part # RP66559 is designed for trailers with tongue...

  • Hitch, Weight Distribution And Towing Accessories to Tow 12,000 lb Boat with 2000 Ford F350
  • Unless you're planning on carrying a truck bed camper again, the Torklift # TLF1002-30 Hitch you referenced would be overkill for you. A Class V hitch like the Curt # C15410 would be a less expensive option. For a ball mount, use the Draw-Tite # 40331 with the # 19286 2-5/16 inch trailer ball. Anytime the weight of what you're towing exceeds half the weight of the tow vehicle, weight distribution is recommended. To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine...

  • Can Weight Distribution System Be Used on Aluminum Trailer Frame
  • Not all aluminum trailer frames are strong enough for use with a steel weight distribution (WD) system. It is possible that the stronger steel WD components could put too much stress on the frame. If your trailer has an aluminum frame you'll first want to check with the manufacturer. Locate your trailer's VIN, model number and manufacturer information and contact the maker. They will ask you about your typical weight loads and other details about your towing application. They will be...

  • Helper Springs or Weight Distribution for a 1999 Ford Expedition that Sags with Boat Trailer Coupled
  • You have some squat there but I've seen worse! Basically, there are two reasons that a vehicle can squat in the back. One is caused by the tongue weight of the trailer and the other is when you are carrying a heavy load in the back of the vehicle. When squat is caused by a heavy load carried in the vehicle that is when you would use suspension enhancement like helper springs of some kind. But when squat is caused by the tongue weight of a trailer the best solution is to use weight distribution....

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2009 Saturn Vue and 2,756 Pound Trailer
  • First, you need to make sure your 2009 Saturn Vue has a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver that is rated for weight distribution like # 75556. When choosing a weight distribution system you will need to go by the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow and then add the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. But, do not exceed the tongue weight rating when used with weight distribution for the hitch. A system rated for 200 to...
