Video Transcript for Review of Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3417

inaudible 00:00:00 Today we're taking a look at a rapid hitch adjustable aluminum ball mount from Andersen. The adjustable aluminum ball mount with the built in hitch balls allows you to tow a trailer with your vehicle. So it fits inside of a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver, it's aluminum so it's a very strong, lightweight unit, it looks great, and it won't rust or corrode.You can see here that we have quite a bit of drop. It can also be flipped over and used in the rise. So this is gonna be great for larger vehicles, or for vehicles that have maybe a lift to it. It's recommended for vehicles with greater than 24 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening of the hitch when the vehicle is level.It can adjust in increments of one inch.

I wanna point out that the grooves are the adjustment points, so it doesn't actually go the full length of this adjustable shank, so just down here, you can adjust in increments of one inch. If you have it in the lowest setting, from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, down to the top of this platform in the lowest setting, is a 10 inch drop. If you flip it over, and have it at the highest setting, it's gonna give you a maximum rise of around 11 inches, and again, incremental height adjustment, one inch.This unit allows towing of various trailers by using the same ball mount. So not only can you adjust it up and down, which is great for leveling the vehicle with the trailer coupler height, but also you can tow trailers that may have different coupler sizes. So you have a two and five sixteenth inch ball, and you have a two inch ball.

Now to switch between them, all you need to do is pull out the adjustment pin. This allows you to adjust that platform up and down the mount. So you pull that out, flip this over, and you can re install it. So that's how you switch from one ball to the other. Now if you ever need to replace the balls, that's a one piece design, so it's a solid piece.

It just fits, or slides into that platform. There's a pin on the back that you can remove and that will allow you to remove the actual hitch balls from the ball mount platform. And you could replace that whole unit, or if you wanna get one that has a one and seven eighth inch ball, you can do that as well. But it does come with a two inch, and a two and five sixteenth inch ball.Now you'll notice that these hitch balls have these caps on them. These are greaseless nylon caps.

So it comes with two greaseless aluminum ball hitch balls, two sided platform, two inch, and two and five sixteenth, the greaseless nylon caps allow for easy rotation between the actual ball and the coupler from the trailer when towing. So no kinking, no locking, no binding.You will need a pin and clip or a hitch lock to secure this inside the receiver tube of your hitch. Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com. Part's made in the US, it fits a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. It's also compatible with two and a half inch hitches, you'll just need a reducer sleeve. Which, those are sold separately, we have some to choose from here at etrailer.com if you don't already have one.When it comes to the weight capacity, when using the two inch ball, you have an eight thousand pound gross trailer weight capacity, 10 000 pound with the two and five sixteenth inch ball, and the unit itself has a ton weight capacity of 1500 pounds. I went over the drop and rise measurements, so now I just wanna mention from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the center of the hitch balls, that measurement is about nine and one quarter inches.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount from Andersen.

I have owned for a year now and no complaints thus far. I do a lot of trailering with several different trailers and it has been a great hitch. Tow vehicle is a 02 2500 Silverado Duramax with 4 1/2 suspension lift. Durable and adjusts easy. Quality hitch. 433654

Purchased the Rapid Hitch Aluminum Ball Mount Kit w/2 Greaseless Balls and the Rapid Hitch Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock. Arrived very quickly. Arrived in great condition.

This is a must have for full-time trailer hauling. No ball grease needed. Easy to adjust for a level trailer, smooth towing. I increased my trailer tires to light duty truck tires (a little taller tire), for heaver loads & ease of mind to haul at 75 mph speed. This hitch allow me to fine tune the trailer ball height for best setup on my heavy duty Toyota Tundra truck. 426553

Picked up an aluminum burr in my finger when unpacking the unit. There are some unfinished type of circles that are quite sharp and need to be filed smooth. Other than that, the unit looks great and I'm anxious to put it to use. 242407


Comments
The hitch pin did not push through when I flipped the ball mount over into the receiver. I contacted the manufacturer twice and after two more replacements, the ball mount worked as advertised. The hitched looked great during the summer, but the winter road salt and sand took its toll, But at least its not all rusted and overall Im satisfied with the product.

Just installed, haven’t towed with it yet, quality after examination is spot on. The hitch lock set by Anderson towing products is very well machined. Lori B. At etrailer answered all my questions, was polite and professional. This is my first order from them but won’t be my last. 719473

Brought this for my HD pickup truck to tow my 18 foot enclosed cargo trailer. It's good looking, functional, no future rust, and works great. I'm still out on the greaseless aspect of the hitch balls, but so far, so good. 321741

I have had it a year and it works perfectly. Love it and it will not rust like my last one did. The greaseless ball cap works great so far. I would recommend.

Needed an adjustable hitch for my TaB trailer. This will be perfect. Great-looking piece of equipment. Easy to find on website, great prices, fast, fast shipping! Awesome! 162376


Comments
Ive been stopped more than once in a parking lot by someone asking about my hitch & dual lock set-up. I refer them to your site! The hitch works great and the fact that it can be raised/ped is the main reason for the purchase. The dual locks with a single key is handy! A good pair of chocks is needed in every garage for the home mechanic and for camping with a trailer. They smell terrible for a while, just dont store in your car/trailer camper. Money well spent. Your site is my first stop for my trailer needs! thanks!

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I purchased this to replace a Fastway Flash E Series Ball mount that I purchased and returned from another online seller that did not provide enough clearance from my rear bumper in the rise position. My vehicle really needed the extra 5/8ths of an inch of length on the shank of the Rapid Hitch. Clearance was not a problem in the drop position; but with a receiver that's 18-inches off the ground, I need to use the rise position more frequently than many. The other thing I noticed is that this ball mount is feels more substantial than the one from Fastway. In use, I prefer this to the Andersen EZ hitch I had been borrowing. It looks really cool. It has 5 adjustment positions rather than four and bit more adjustability in either direction. Plus, it still fits in easily in the storage area underneath the floor of my SUV. And did I say it looks really cool. I hated to put grease on the ball before I went to hook up the trailer. Also, I plan to get the lock set. It's looks great on my SUV and seems likely to disappear overnight and look great on someone else's vehicle. 453600


Comments
Ive used this ball mount a lot over the last year both in the 2-inch and 2 and 5/16-inch configuration and it has held up very well. There is a small grove in the shaft from my hitch receiver but, otherwise, it still looks almost new. I did ultimately purchase the lock set for those occasions where I would be disconnecting the trailer, I was towing overnight but didnt want to remove the ball mount only to have to put it back on in the morning.

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I ordered my AM3405 and was amazed how quickly the etrailer team responded with not only my order confirmation but the fantastic follow up when it was shipped and delivered. I highly recommend etrailer and will order from them again. The product showed up in great shape and I am very happy with the quality. One recommendation would be to order two of the locking pins. One for the receiver and one to lock the ball mount to the unit. You will see by my picture I resolved that issue with a pad lock but the locking pin would have been better. 12115
