Changing Ball Height and Replacing Balls

To adjust the height of the ball, remove the pin so that you are able to slide the ball platform up or down along the shank to the desired position. Re-insert the pin once you have found the correct height and replace the clip.


Switching the hitch ball is just as easy. Simply remove the pin holding the ball platform in place and slide the platform off of the shank. Flip the platform upside down so that the ball you want to use is on top. Then slide the ball platform back onto the shank and replace the pin.

Video Transcript for Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Fastway Flash E-series lines of adjustable two-ball mounts. If you have multiple trailers that you tow with your vehicle, it can be kind of a hassle even having just two ball mounts. Whether we're wanting to change the height for our different riser drops for our trailer, or if we have a different coupler size on our trailer, it can be a little cumbersome to have two or three or more ball mounts. That's where our Flash E-series is going to come into play. It's going to allow us to adjust the height very quickly, as well as the ball size to match up to any trailer that we need to.Our Fastway ball mounts are going to be available in a lot of different configurations. We're going to have the 2" shank that'll go into our 2" receiver tube opening, as well as a 2-1/2" shank that can fit in some of the bigger trucks.

They're going to be available in a a lot of different sizes of rises and drops, so you'll be able to pick whatever's going to match up to your multiple different trailers, and pick something in between so it'll work for all of them. Each one is going to be adjustable in 1" increments, so you'll be able to fine tune it to match up to all those trailers. The way we're going to adjust our ball, is we're going to have this pin here. On the other side we'll have a clip, so you can go ahead and pull out our clip. We're going to remove the pin, we'll be able to slide that ball platform up or down to match up to our trailer, to get the height or drop that we need.Then we simply replace the clip, and we're ready to go.

Now, adjusting the height is important to match up to our trailer, but if we have a different coupler size, that's going to bring up another problem. Well, the Flash series is going to have two different balls on there. We're going to have a 2", as well as a 2-5/16" ball, and they're both going to be attached permanently to that ball platform, so we're not going to have to worry about carrying an extra bag, and having something else lying in our truck. We need to change out the ball, we can simply remove the pin, take the ball platform off, flip it over, and again find the appropriate rise or drop for our application, and then just put the pin and clip back.You'll notice it is going to have a really high polished look to it, almost a chrome finish. That's because it's going to be made out of an aircraft grade aluminum construction.

We're not going to have to worry about any weak points, because it's going to be made out of a solid piece, so we're not going to have any welds that potentially could break. A big benefit of an aluminum ball mount over the steel version, it is going to be a lot more lightweight, but still have all the same strength and durability the steel one is going to have. A lot of our customers are comparing some of the aluminum ball mounts to each other, and really they are going to be pretty comparable as far as the size, and different configurations that they're going to come in.The Flash E-series is going to have a leg up on the looks department, because it is going to be one of the only ones that has that super high mirror polish finish, and it's just going to complement a lot of the chrome on your vehicle, and look good on the back of it.All of our ball mounts that have a 2" shank are going to be a Class 4 rated, and the 2-1/2" shank is going to be a Class 5. So they're going to extra strong and be able to handle all those loads, but they're also going to be light in weight because they're made out of that aluminum. Each one of the balls is going to be a chrome-plated steel, so they're still going to have that really nice look to them, but they're going to have that durability to handle getting hooked up and unhooked all the time.You'll notice that we have our ball mount in a rise position.

If we needed to flip it over and put it in the drop position, it's a simple as pulling out the pin and clip, removing the entire assembly, and flipping it over. Then we can replace our pin and clip. I do want to mention that the pin and clip we're using is not included in the kit to secure it to the trailer hitch. However, there is a lockset available here at etrailer.com, that not only would secure it to the trailer hitch, but it also secures the ball platform to the mount itself.Since our ball mounts are going to have different sizes available, and it can be used in different configurations, you always want to double check the weight ratings. Once you figure out how much your trailer weighs, you always want to double check your hitch and your owner's manual and never exceed the lowest rating of all of them. Having the adjustability available with our ball mounts, switch out the balls, as well as the rise and drop, is a nice thing. But it doesn't do us any good if we don't know how to find the right rise and drop for our vehicle and trailer combination, so we'll show you how to do that.We'll start by removing our ball mount completely. You want to make sure that your tow vehicle, as well as your trailer, is on a nice, level ground so we can take a few measurements. We're going to start by measuring from the ground to the inside top edge of the receiver tube opening. Our vehicle here is just about 17". Then we can move to our trailer, and you want to make sure that your trailer is nice and level also. We'll measure our trailer, and our trailer's right about 22-1/2". So there's about a 5-1/2" difference there. So we're going to want to go about 5, if not 6" of a rise, since our trailer coupler is higher than our truck.Let's take our ball mount, we're going to put it in the rise position since we're going to need that 5-1/2", 6" rise. We'll secure it into our hitch. Then we'll grab our ball platform, slide it over. We'll get it pretty close to where we need it, and we can secure it down and double check our measurements. We have our ball mount within that 1/2", so we can go and back up and hook up to our trailer, and hit the road. That'll finish up your look at the Fastway Flash E-series line of adjustable two-ball mounts.

I just received my hitch from etrailer.com. The material and overall look of the hitch is excellent. Although a little pricey I like the height adjustment and the different size hitch balls. I pull different size and type trailers and I like the ease of adjustments. I tried a different type adjustable hitch in the past it was big and bulky very noisy and heavy. This one stores easy in my double cab Silverado and is not excessively heavy. The shipping was fast from etrailer and the ease of finding what you want on the website was great. 546051

This was my first experience with etrailer. First, Donna's knowledge of the products and application was first rate.

Just purchased a Fastway FLASH E-series HD adjustable ball mount for my new '17 F250 Superduty. The mount looks great out of the box and fantastic on the truck. Will be towing a triple axle trailer with 30' center console soon as well as a utility trailer off and on. Nice to have one set-up that's able to tow two different loads. The polished finish is very nice and the matching lock set looks very secure. Amazingly fast shipping from etrailer.com too. Even curious George likes it. 363220

When installed on the shank, the shank will ensure the screw can't back out too far for function.

It also has a maximum tongue weight of 1,200 pounds. However, it is steel and not aluminum. You also need a hitch ball # C40030. Another option is the Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2625 that's rated up to 1,800 pounds...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount with Stainless Steel Balls and a 2-1/2 Inch Hitch
  • There aren't any stainless steel balls for Fastway ball mount # FA42-00-2625 but we do have # DTALBM6625-2S. It comes with stainless steel 2" and 2-5/16" balls. I have included a link to a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Will Weight Distribution Be Needed on a 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • With the trailer weight that you provided, I recommend using a weight distribution system with sway control on your towing setup. Any time the trailer weighs more than half of the weight of the two vehicle we recommend using a weight distribution system. Even using a hitch with a 2-1/2 receiver opening will not negate the use of weight distribution with a trailer weighing as much as yours. I have attached a FAQ article on weight distribution that will have more information on when weight...

  • Heavy Duty Tow Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-350
  • Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15810 which is a fit for your 2008 Ford F-350 will allow you to tow your 2000 Holiday Rambler Aluma Lite 30SKS without the use of a weight distribution system assuming the figures you provided on the trailer are correct. This hitch has a 20,000 lbs gross trailer weight (GTW) and 2,700 lb tongue weight (TW) rating with a 2-1/2" receiver tube opening. According to the instructions for this hitch, the professional installation time is 30 minutes...

  • Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount for a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with 2-1/2 Inch Receiver Tube
  • We have a number of adjustable ball mounts that will fit the 2-1/2" receiver tube opening on your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 which I have attached for you. However, the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount Kit part # AM3400 or part # AM3405 are designed to fit a 2" receiver tube opening therefore will not work for you. The difference between them is that part # AM3405 has a nylon cap which will not require lubrication. They both have zinc plated hitch balls. Instead, I recommend...

  • Available Ball Mount Adapters for Friction-Style Sway Control Devices
  • We do offer many fixed and adjustable 2-1/2-inch ball mounts, shown on the linked page, including items like Fastway adjustable model # FA42-00-2625. Although we do offer friction sway control adapters # RP26005 for 1-1/4-inch Class II hitches and # RP26003 for 2-inch Class III hitches, there is no comparable part for 2-1/2-inch shanks. This is mainly because the effectiveness of basic friction sway units like # 83660 is limited to lighter trailers than those typically towed with a 2-1/2-inch...

  • Weight Capacity of Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount FA42-00-2625
  • I am not sure which Andersen hitch you have, but the Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2625 you referenced is made for 2-1/2 inch hitches which allows the shank and rest of the ball mount to be larger and therefore stronger. You should note that this only has an 18k capacity when you use the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball and if you use the 2 inch ball you are reduced to 12,000 lbs.

  • Anti-Rattle Device for 2-1/2 Inch to 2 Inch Sleeve Adapter
  • I do have one other option for you to help stabilize what I assume is a 2" ball mount being used with a 2-1/2" to 2" sleeve inside a 2-1/2" receiver tube. For this, I recommend to use the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-063 between the receiver tube and sleeve and the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-033 between the sleeve and ball mount. This device would apply pressure is all directions and you don't have to worry about heavy duty towing capability. That said, there is really...
