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.

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. 482690

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • 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 Frame Bracket Recommendation for Reese V5 Weight Distribution System
    The replacement lift brackets part # RP6637 that you referenced should work well for you. These also come with the handle to make snapping up the bracket easier, set screws and safety pins to lock the brackets in the raised position.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • What Size Trailer Frame Will the Replacement Weight Distribution Chain Hangers Fit On
    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. 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...

  • Will Reese Lift Brackets # RP6637 work on a Trailer with 788 lbs of Tongue Weight
    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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Lift Brackets for a Weight Distribution System
    It sounds like you are looking for a set of lift brackets for a weight distribution system. Although it would be helpful if I knew which system you currently have, lift brackets are fairy universal therefore you would more than likely be able to use either part # RP6637 or part # RP58305. The part ending in "37" are clamp-on style brackets that will fit trailer frames up to 2-1/2" wide. The part ending in "05" are bolt-on style brackets that will be needed if your frame rail is wider...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Trailer Bracket for Reese Sway Bars 22210
    The Replacement Head for Reese Weight Distribution System - Trunnion Bar # RP58167 is confirmed to go with your sway bars. There are two possible sway bar styles and that will impact the brackets needed. If you have the tapered bars that are straight at the end then you can use the # RP6637 for chain use with Reese Replacement Chain Kit # 55630 but the SC system brackets are no longer available. If you have the bars with the curve like # RP66009 then you will use brackets # RP6637...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Lift Bracket for Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System
    The Replacement Lift Brackets with Handle for Reese Weight Distribution Systems # RP6637 is what you want for your Reese Strait-Line dual cam # RP66084. This is the proper replacement for the tongue weight you are referring to. If you just want the single replacement # RP21501 which is rated for 600 lbs is what comes with the unit, so the # 58392 is a stronger bracket rated for 800 lb tongue weight. The head, cam arms, and brackets share the weight, so rest assured these are the proper...

  • Determining Old Weight Distribution System Manufacturer and Replacement Part Options
    It does look like an old style Reese system. We have seen a few of these and they are similar to the newer version # RP66084. The part pictured has been replaced with the newer dual cam system yet they function in a very similar way. They no longer make that system, so I recommend upgrading to the newer system if you need replacement parts as those parts are no longer available. I've attached an article on weight distribution systems to further assist if you want information on...

  • Replacement Lift Brackets and Sway Control Recommendation for Reese Weight Distribution System
    It sounds like you are talking about the lift brackets such as # RP6637. They attach to the trailer frame and hold the chains at the ends of the spring bars. As far as sway control the best option is going to depend on the design of the spring bars in your weight distribution system. If the bars have the hook end like bar # RP22225 then dual-cam sway control # RP26002 is the best option because it stops sway before it starts. If your spring bars are straight at the ends then your...

  • 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...

    Yes, you can get the individual parts of Reese weight distribution system # RP66542 needed to use the system on a second trailer. First, you will need the frame brackets that mount on the trailer frame. For both brackets I recommend # RP6637. You can also add new chains with # 55630 but you will need to order 2 of them. This would be if you have to also use different bars. For the bars you can use the same ones that you have if the tongue weight of the new trailer is 600 to 1,200...

  • Reese Weight Distribution Snap up Bracket Recommendation
    If you chose to drill into the frame of your trailer to install the # 58392 there are two holes that the bracket has for that purpose. A better deal would be to order the part # RP6637 that is these brackets sold in a pair, plus an additional lift bar. For extra safety pins you would want Reese Replacement Clips for Weight Distribution Uplift Brackets, part # 58029.
