Video Transcript for Reese Titan Ball Mount Review - 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Today on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, we'll be test fitting the Reese Titan Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch receivers with a 3-1/2 inch Rise or 5 inch Drop, graded at 18,000 pounds part number RP45323. To begin our test fit we'll first get our hitch height measurement. This is the measurement from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube. We have a measurement of 21 inches. Keep in my that this measurement may vary depending on tire size, hitch style or after market accessories. We'll install our ball mount in the drop position first, sliding the shank of the ball mount into the receiver tube of the hitch. We line up the pinhole and install our pin and clip which is sold separately.

We take a measurement from the ground to the top of our ball platform and get a measurement of 16 inches. When measuring your trailer right height you want to do so when your trailer is level. You'll measure from the ground to the bottom of your coupler. If your measurements matches our hitch height or the measurement we took with our ball mount in the drop position, then this would be a good fit for you. We'll flip our ball mount over to the rise position and we now have a measurement from the ground to the top of our ball platform of 24 and a quarter inches. Again, if your measurement matches ours then this would be an appropriate ball mount for you.

That completes today's test fit of the Reese Titan Ball Mount for 2-1/2 inch receivers, part number RP45323 on our 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. .

I have a 2015 Ford F-250 with the factory 2.5" receiver hitch. This drop ball mount fits into the factory receiver well, contrary to the product warning. It is also extremely beefy, you will not be disappointed! Photo fitment proof! 168111

Very Strong ball mount. My wive (its her truck), towed 7000# of horse, tack and trailer last saturday. I know this ball mount is overkill but it is easier than using a 2" with the receiver adapter. Also this way if we have to tow something real heavy we already have the ball mount for it. 134239

Looks like you tow horse trailer with Ram 2500. I just purchased one for towing a horse trailer and am trying to figure out if I need a 4 or 5 inch . Looks like 5 inches works for you.

The drop size depends not just on the truck but the height of the trailer as well. There is a real quick way to figure out exactly what size drop you need. You'll just need to take one measurement on the truck and one on the trailer. Check out the link one of our FAQ articles on slecting a ball mount.

These hitches are solid. I have had 1 of these for about 8 years and it has taken some abuse with out failure. Liked it so much when my dad bought i new truck we got one for his too. Best hitch on the market if your not looking for adjustable height. 736222

This is the second Mount I purchase. First one was a different drop size and I needed something longer for the new trailer. I loved the first one so much that there was no reason to change. These are built very strong and I have used it several times hauling very heavy loads on very bad roads. Works as it should . 615066

Ask the Experts about this Reese Ball Mounts

  • Weight Capacity of Curt Class V 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver, Part # C15810
    You are correct that the product description for the Curt Class V 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver, Part # C15810, shows the same tongue weight and gross towing weight ratings with and without weight distribution. This is because unlike lower capacity hitches, say a Class III, this Class V hitch is already rated at or near the vehicle structural limits. Strictly speaking, adding a weight distribution setup would give this hitch receiver higher capacity, but it would serve no purpose. Unless...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation Rated for 14,000 Pounds Gross Trailer Weight on a Ford F-450
    To determine the receiver size you have, I have included a link to an FAQ that will help. The Reese 2-1/2 inch Titan ball mounts like # RP45323 or the one found in # EBMK25318, tend not to fit the factory 2-1/2 inch receivers on Ford Super Duty trucks. You will need to use one of the Convert-A-Ball ball mounts. We have # AMSCV-6 with a 6 inch drop or 4-3/4 inch rise. We also have # AMSCV-4 with a 4 inch drop or 2-3/4 inch rise. And then we have # AMSCV-2 with a 2 inch drop or 3/4...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2016 Ford F-350 with 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    Since the tongue weight of the trailer will pull down a little on the truck you can go with a ball mount that has a 5 inch drop. I actually recommend going with an adjustable ball mount that has multiple balls, # WS6-25. This ball mount has a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball, a built-in tongue weight scale, and the height can be adjusted in 1 inch increments. It is also made of aluminum so it won't rust. If you want to go with a regular cushioned ball mount then the best option for a...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Ford F450 with a 2-1/2 inch Hitch Opening
    There are three ball mounts we offer that will work for the 2-1/2 inch hitch on your Ford F450 with a 2-1/2 inch opening. The problem that many encounter is that the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitches are very tight with round corners and many ball mounts like the Reese Titan Ball Mount # RP45323 that you referenced will not fit without modification. The ball mounts we have found to work on the Ford 2-1/2 hitches are the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSCV-2, the Cushioned Ball Mount # AMSCV-4, and the...

  • Will the Use of a 2-1/2 Inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Reducer Sleeve Reduce the Hitch Capacity
    You have a couple of options. The best thing to do would be to use a ball mount that fits in your hitch. The reason is that you will not have to worry about a reducer sleeve fitting, any capacity reduction, or adding another component in the system. For 2-1/2 inch receivers we have # RP45322, or # RP45323 for an 18,000 pound fixed ball mount. The other option is to use a reducer, # 58102. The hitch capacity should not be dramatically changed so if it is rated to tow the 13,000 pounds...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-450 Towing 2007 Keystone Springdale
    Weight distribution is recommended when the loaded weight of the trailer is more than half of the weight of the tow vehicle. Your trailer loaded will probably weigh about what your tow vehicle weighs, if not more. 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 an FAQ on determining tongue...

  • Ball Mount, 2 Inch Ball, and Storage Bag for a 2013 Ram 2500 with 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    We do not have a ball mount kit with a 2-1/2 inch ball mount and 2 inch ball but you can get those items separately. The ball mount that is used in the kit you referenced is # RP45323. For a 2 inch ball with a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank you can use # A-90 rated up to 10,000 pounds. And the storage bag is # ETBMB. Getting these parts separately will actually save you a couple of bucks!

  • Recommendations for Ball Mount to Fit 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver On 2015 Ram 2500 Diesel
    It sounds like the trailer hitch that came on your 2015 Ram 2500 Diesel has a 2-1/2 inch hitch receiver. If this is the case, I can certainly help you find a ball mount that will work well for you! There are a couple of options to get a ball mount that will work for you. One option is a reducer sleeve, such as the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve # C45405. This will allow you to use your 2 inch ball mount or other 2 inch hitch accessories inside your Ram's 2-1/2 inch receiver. All...

  • Trailer Hitch Extension for 2009 GMC Sierra with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Towing a Boat with In-bed Camper
    First, the Ford 2-1/2 inch hitch has be known to have some compatibility issues with some accessories. The problem is that the hitch receiver has more rounded corners than a lot of accessories that have more square corners. In the event you run into this issue, what you can do is gently and carefully remove some of the powder coating around the accessory shank until it fits. Do not remove any metal. This will weaken the accessory. The extension length you need is going to be based...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Factory 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Ford F-350
    For your 2011 Ford F-350 with a factory 2-1/2 inch trailer hitch receiver, you can use the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Hitches # AMSCV-2. It fits 2-1/2-inch hitches with a towing capacity of 18,000 lbs and a tongue weight of 2000 lbs. It has a drop of 2 inches and a rise of 3/4 inches.

  • Recommendation for a 14,000 Pound Ball Mount for a 2011 Ford F-350 Dually
    The closest ball mount we have to a 2 inch rise that is also rated for 14K is the Cushioned Ball Mount, # AMSC2HD. It has a rise of 1-1/2 inches and accepts a ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank. For a ball, you can use # 63836. Another option would be an adjustable ball mount, # C45900.

  • Reese Ball Mount with Black Powder Coat Finish
    The Reese Ball Mount - 3-1/2" Rise, 5" Drop - 10" Long - 18,000 lbs # RP45323 does have a gloss black powder coat finish over an autophoretic coating or "A-coat". This ensures the heat resistant metal is able to be protected from corrosion and wear.

  • Ball Mount and Hitch Ball for a 2008 Ford F-450 Class 5 Hitch
    If you have the Class 5 hitch on your F-450 and the inside measurement of your hitch opening is 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches, then this ball mount will work in your truck's receiver hitch. The hitch ball you selected has the proper 1-1/4 inch size shank to fit the RP45323 ball mount. If you have a 2 by 2 inch receiver then you could use ball mount DTBM5400 (see link below), up to 14,000 pounds and the same ball for your towing needs.

  • Can a Ball Mount for a 2-1/2 Inch Class V Trailer Hitch be Used in the Rise Position
    Depending on the ball mount, you can use it in the rise or drop position. Some ball mounts, like # 45291, can only be used in the drop position. The Reese Titan Ball Mount, # RP45323, that comes in the etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # EBMK25518, can be used in the rise or drop position. It will provide 3-1/2 inches of rise or 5 inches of drop.
