Video Transcript for Reese Weight Distribution RP6637 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RP6637. These are the Reese replacement lift brackets for Reese Weight Distribution Systems. The brackets are going to mount on the trailer tongue and they're going to provide the connection points for the chainS that are connected to the weight distribution spring bars. Those chains are going to connecT right here to this little hook. The lift bar attaches to the handle, right here. That's going to make lowering and raising the spring bars much easier and safer.

That lift handle is included. The replacement unit is designed for use with Reese Weight Distribution Systems. You're also going to get your two safety pins. They through this area right here. That's going to keep the brackets in the raised position. These are made from a steel construction and they're going to have a nice black powder coat finish which is going to make it stand up well against rust and corrosion.

You're going to get two snap up brackets. You're going to get the two pins, your installation bolts will go into this slot back here. You're going to get the left handle. Now these are going to install approximately thirty inches back from the coupler. If we take a measurement of the width, that's going to let us know about how much room along the trailer frame it's going to take up. From edge to edge that looks to be about five and a half inches so it's going to take up about five and a half inches of space along the trailer frame.

If we measure the opening here, you see that measures just a little over two and a half inches. So this will not fit trailer frames that are wider than two and a half inches. That's going to do it for today's review of part number RP6637. These are the replacement lift brackets for the Reese Weight Distribution Systems.

Lift brackets were not quite a direct replacement for my WD hitch (a ProPride 3P), but they work great and are much easier/quicker to use. The paint wears off near the pivot points and where the chain goes. Every so often, I take them off and re-paint them so they look pretty. After a year, they still work great, but there is very slight wear where the chain hooks up.

Delivered on time and was an exact fit for the old ones. The retaining pins seem kind of small but haven't done any towing yet to see how they hold up.

The lift brackets fit the sway bars we got from our neighbor. Worked very well. Wish the transmission on the old Suburban we previously used with the bars, worked as well. The "new to us" F-350 diesel 4x4 should remedy that problem. A bit over kill, but was what we could find at the time. Thanks.

Perfect - we have used it and it works well - used for over a month last summer - will be using again this summer. Thanks for having replacement parts.

Waited until I actually used them to review. I put them on an 18' car trailer to haul my tractor with. Night and day difference in towing! I will be drilling and bolting them on directly now that I'm sure of the positioning.

I bought a new camper and wanted to go out camping the next week but i needed weight distribution brackets and a an anti sway mount before i could go. I ordered these parts from etrailer.com and in a matter of a few days the correct parts showed up and i was able to install them before i needed to leave for my camping trip. Needless to say i was very happy.

I received excellent assistance when contacting etrailer by phone, trying to determine the correct piece-items needed for my new trailer, to replace the parts for my Reese Sway-Control/Wt Distribution system that I "lost" when selling my old trailer. they were polite, patient and helpful. This hardware set, as well as the Lift brackets and Dual-sway Cams were as heavy-duty as needed (as described) and will be putting them onto my new trailer as soon as I pick, it up.

So easy to install and works great! The trailer pulls much better with the equalizer hitch installed. These were parts to put on a second trailer in order to use a hitch I already had. Very timely delivery and easy installation! Great source for parts! Thanks everyone.

Very pleased with the products, perfect fit to my already weight distribution hitch. shipping was fast and the package was surprisingly wrapped better than I thought it would have been. the brake controller was the easiest to install, Just connect the cable to the connector under the dash and it works. Just read the instructions on setting the power level for your trailer brakes. that is very important. Sorry about no pictures bad weather while installing but will take pictures of finished product. Thanks again

E-trailer is great to work with. I was not sure which lift brackets would work, e trailer made it easy with all the videos and information. I received the product in just a few days and it took me 10 minutes to hook it up. Thanks e trailer I will be back for all my towing needs.

I have not installed the lift brackets on my trailer, but cannot find any reason that they would not work as designed. It is winter in the northeast and I will not install for a while. These lift brackets will definitely aid in hauling my 4500lb enclosed car hauler trailer.

i purchased these lift brackets as i will be using a weight dist system on my race car trailer to buy them was a great price from etrailer for both sides for weigh dist lift brackets

Can't really give a review on the product because we never received it. It was delivered by UPS to the wrong address and neither UPS or etrailer would take blame for it. We even were asked to drive where it was delivered to pick it up, but no one claimed to receive it. We had paid for 3 day shipping, needed the part to pick up our camper in 2 days, but apparently etrailer could not help us. Had to rush to find the piece elsewhere.

by:

Very happy with my purchases from etrailer. I chose standard shipping (5-7 days) because it was free for orders over $150, but to my surprise my entire order came in 2.5 days. All the products were exactly as described and exactly what I wanted for my new trailer. Also after a lot of research etrailer had the best prices and name brand products that you can trust.

  • Replacement Lift Brackets for Pro Series Weight Distribution System 49903
    We do have replacement lift brackets that will work perfectly with your Pro Series Weight Distribution System w Friction Sway Control 49903, though not ones that are weld on. Instead, the correct replacements are the Replacement Lift Brackets with Handle # RP6637.

  • Replacement Lift Brackets for Reese 54970 Weight Distribution System
    To replace the trailer frame lift brackets for your Reese Weight Distribution System that uses the # RP54970 adjustable shank I recommend the Lift Bracket Kit # RP6637. This replaces both brackets that simply snap up onto the trailer's frame. The bolts, safety clips, and lift handle are also included. I have attached a short video review that you can check out as well.

  • Are Reese Weight Distribution Snap Up Brackets RP21501 and RP6637 the Same
    We offer the part # RP21501 that you mentioned which is basically just as single bracket that comes with the # RP6637. In other words the part # RP6637 is just two of the brackets part # RP21501.

  • Clamp-On Brackets For Weight Distribution System
    We do sell replacement brackets for some weight distribution systems. For example, the Replacement Lift Brackets with Handle # RP6637 is a replacement set of brackets for Reese weight distribution systems. If you can provide us with more information on the weight distribution system you are currently using, then we can try to match up a set of clamps/brackets for you. I have attached a link to our replacement parts for weight distribution hitches.

  • Installation Instructions for the Reese Weight Distribution System Tip Up Brackets # RP6637
    The Reese Weight Distribution System Tip Up Brackets, item # RP6637, are designed so that they can be installed with just the bolts wedged against the trailer frame, or they can be bolted to the frame. Most people opt to just tighten the frame bolts and leave it at that, so that they do not have to drill into the trailer frame. I have linked a set of installation instructions for you to review, on page 3 you will find the instructions for installing the tip up brackets.

  • Replacement Weight Distribution Lift Brackets and Friction Sway Control Ball Plate Assembly
    It sounds like you are looking for frame brackets, # RP6637, which is what the chains hang from on the trailer frame. And it also sounds like you need a replacement ball plate assembly, # RP58062, which mounts to the side of the trailer frame.

  • Replacement Parts and Sway Control for Reese Weight Distribution System
    When you say your Airstream trailer has a GVWR of 8,500, I assume you mean GTW or gross trailer weight. Typically a trailer's tongue weight is about 10 to 15 percent of the GTW. Based on your trailer's GTW, your tongue weight should be around 850 lbs. If so, the trunnion bars you have (rated for a tongue weight of 600 lbs. - 1,200 lbs.) will work for you. There is no kit containing all the parts you need, however you can purchase them separately. You will need the lift brackets with handle...

I added a photo of the brackets on a 2 inch by 3 inch trailer frame for you to see. The lift brackets mounting bolt is also long enough to accommodate a C channel style frame. These brackets will require 5-1/2 inches of space along the length of your 4 inch trailer frame for installation. This means that you will need 5-1/2 inches along the...

    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...

    The Replacement Lift Brackets, # RP6637, will fit on trailer frames that are 3 inches tall or greater and up to 2-1/2 inches wide along the top. As long as your trailer has a frame with those measurements you would be fine to use these hangers on your trailer with 8,600 lbs total weight and 788 lbs of tongue weight. You will want to use a weight distribution system with spring bars that encompass the tongue weight of your trailer when it is loaded. Tongue weight also includes the weight...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Weight Distribution System Chain Lift Brackets
    There are different brackets, like the Replacement Heavy Duty Snap-Up Bracket for Reese Weight Distribution Systems # 58392 which will fit tongue weight capacities up to 800 lbs. This is the same bracket that comes with the # RP6637. The # RP21501 is for TW capacities up to 600 lbs. I believe the hooks are the same size, so the chains may not be correct on your system. If this is the case, I recommend the Reese Replacement Weight Distribution Chain Kit # 3216.

  • Replacement Snap Up Bracket Recommendation for Reese Weight Distribution System
    Sounds like you have a standard Reese weight distribution system based on the part number for the shank that you mentioned. So for frame chain hangers we have the # RP6637 which comes with a set of hangers for both sides of the trailer plus a lift handle.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Chain Hangers For Trailer With Angle-Iron Frame
    I can not see a way you could install the Replacement Lift Brackets, part # RP6637 on your trailer other than welding as you mentioned. I recommend using the Reese Chain Hangers, part # RP58305. These bolt on to the frame and do not rely on trailer frames like the # RP6637 hangers.

This is the current bracket offered by Reese; Reese also confirmed that they could not locate a part number 21500 like you have so it is possible that you actually have 21501, or that you have an old part number which has now been replaced by the current 21501. Either way,...

  • Problem Lifting Snap-Up Brackets on Weight Distribution System
    As a first step, I would recommend reviewing the set-up instructions included with your system. Typically, there should not be so much pressure on the spring bars that its difficult to snap the brackets upward. How are the spring bars situated once the brackets are snapped up in place? The spring bars should be angled back and downward from the weight distribution head, or at least parallel with the trailer frame, but certainly not pointing upward. If your system is set up according...

  • Weight Capacity of Reese Weight Distribution System for Class V Hitch
    Weight distributions don't typically have the same weight capacity classifications as other towing products. But if you are looking for a weight distribution system for a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening we have great options from Reese. For example, we have the Reese part # RP66006 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lb and and overall trailer weight rating of 17,000 lbs. You'd need a shank with this though. For that we have the part # RP54977 which would work...

  • Difference Between Weight Distribution Chain Lift Brackets # 586392 and # RP21501
    Because your trailer is fairly heavy, I would recommend you go with 2 of the # 58392 lift brackets. The 58392 has extra gusseting welded to it for reinforcement, and would be better suited to a heavier trailer like yours, because the spring bars will be under greater tension than they would be for a lighter trailer. Part # RP6637 is a kit that includes two of the # RP21501 brackets and the lift handle. If you look at the photo I have edited for you, you can see the difference...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 6,000 lb Trailer
    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. If your trailer weighs in at 6,000...

Alternatively, if your setup is currently silver you can just replace the one arm with either of the above listed products. The...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 6K and 7K Trailers Towed by GMC Denali
    Weight distribution (WD) systems need to be tuned to the actual fully-loaded trailer tongue weight (TW) in order to work properly. 6K and 7K trailers could have similar tongue weights, which would allow one system to work with both, apart from the need to swap out hitch balls. You'll want to check the actual trailer TWs and add to that the weight of anything that sits behind the Denali's rear axle, since that too acts like trailer TW. Typically a properly loaded trailer's TW will be...
