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.

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. 94178

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. 576597

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. 551590

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

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. 400903

by:

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. 345636



- RP6637
by:

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. 341392

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. 282469

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. 248303

  • Replacement Parts for Reese Weight Distribution System with Dual Cam Sway Control
  • The replacement cam arms are sold in a pair # RP26002 or just the replacement arm # RP58435. Due to the inheritance of your setup you may have a set of gold colored cam arms instead of silver. If this is the case you would want to replace both arms because there was a design change and I cannot recommend you use an old version cam arm with a new one. Alternatively, if your setup is currently silver you can just replace the one arm with either of the above listed products. The...

  • 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...

  • 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 like # 58346 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

These chains can be purchased separately in the Replacement Weight Distribution Chain Kit, item # 3216. The snap up brackets can also be purchased separately in the Replacement Weight Distribution Hook-Up Brackets kit (2) with Lift Bar, item...

  • Can Reese SC Weight Distribution Spring Bars be Converted to Use Chain Hanging Brackets
  • Technically yes, you could use a chain, # 55630, on a Reese SC spring bar. But you will also need the lift brackets or chain hangers. For the lift brackets you would need # RP21501 sold in quantities of one. Or you can get a pair with a lift handle # RP6637. Another option is to use chain hangers that bolt to the sides of the frame. For a set use # RP58305.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 Lift Bar for 1990 Draw-Tite Weight Distribution Hitch
  • One option is to replace your lift brackets with part # RP6637; this will allow you to use your present lift bar. Your Draw-Tite chains will still work with these new lift brackets. You might also take a look at the Curt lift bar # C17112. This has an outer diameter of 1 inch (see image). If the holes on your current brackets have a similar diameter then this bar will work for you.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Lift Brackets and Friction Sway Control Ball For Pro Series Weight Distribution
  • Sounds like you need replacement chain hangers and a replacement friction sway control ball. For a set of lift bracket/chain hangers you would want the part # RP6637. For a replacement ball for the friction sway control you would want the part # RP58060. Prices are available at the product links.

  • 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...
