Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C40086 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number C40086, this is the Curt 2 and 5/16 inch hitch ball. It's going to provide a 1 inch rise. The hitch ball is going to provide a good connection for your trailers coupler. Again it is going to have that high rise design it will let you easily match the ball to the trailer height. Fine threads that is going to provide exceptionally tight strong grip. It is also going to feature heat treated steel. It is going to be very strong, very durable and it is going to be rust and corrosion resistant.

It's going to have that nice raw machine finish. You will also going to get the lock washer as well as the nut. Again the hitch ball diameter is going to measure 2 and 5/16 of an inch. This is going to fit ball platforms that are at least 3/8 of an inch in thickness. This hitch ball is going to offer a capacity of 25,000 pounds.

Taking a look at the shank diameter. It is going to be the diameter of this portion here that is going to measure an 1 1/4. If we take a look at the shank length measuring from the bottom of the rise to the end of the threads that's going to give us a measurement of about 2 5/8 of an inch. Really simple operation. You would place this through the ball hole on the ball mount. Now keep in mind that the hole size on your ball mount must not be more than 1/16 of an inch larger in diameter than the threaded shank diameter.

You place this through, place on the lock washer followed by the nut and then you will need to get this tight and you will also need to torque it down to the rating listed by the manufacturer. You can find that right here in the little instructional guide. This is going to come attached to your hitch ball. You just want to make sure to detach the tag before installing this on your mount. The torque rating for this particular application is going to be 450 foot pounds of torque.

Once you have that tightened onto your ball mount and torque down, you are going to be set and ready to go. That's going to do it for today's review of part number C40086. This is the Curt 2 and 5/16 inch hitch ball. .

I was expecting a plain raw steel hitch ball but what I received was really nice looking stout hitch ball. I do realize it is just a hitch ball but I am very impressed with the quality of this so called raw hitch ball. I've purchased quite a few items from etrailer and have never been disappointed with the quality not to mention the prices. Keep up the good work. 305194

This 1" height extended hitch ball works perfect to keep my trailer level. I needed a 3" drop but couldn't find a heavy duty ball mount that would work so I purchased a 4" drop mount and this 1" high hitch ball. I wish it was available in a non-raw version, the raw ball does rust up easily on the surface. 454888

Do you have a question about this Hitch Ball?


  • Weight Distribution for Jayco Trailer Over 9,000 Pounds and 2015 Ford F-150
  • Based on the empty tongue weight of 660 pounds the maximum tongue weight is estimated at 930 pounds on your Jayco trailer. The Reese Strait-Line system # RP66084 is rated for 600 to 1,200 pounds tongue weight so it is a good fit for your trailer. You mentioned carrying wood in the truck bed so if any of that weight is behind the rear axle then it gets calculated into the tongue weight of the trailer. If that pushes the tongue weight over 1,200 pounds then you would need to go with the...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Tow Hauler with Tongue Weights from 500 to 1,500 Pounds
  • Since the tongue weight of your trailer will vary from around 500 pounds up to 1,500 pounds I recommend getting one system and an additional set of spring bars so that you can cover that whole range. There isn't a system that covers that whole range with just one set of spring bars. I recommend starting with Reese Strait-Line system # RP66083 rated for 400 to 800 pounds tongue weight for when the trailer is empty and your tongue weight is around 500 pounds. Then, when the tongue weight...

  • Blue Ox Weight Distribution for an 8,700 Pound Travel Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Trailer tongue weight alone is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So on a trailer that weighs 8,700 pounds that would be a tongue weight of 870 to 1,305 pounds. Based on this a 1,000 pound...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 24-Foot V-Nose Trailer with Limited Clearance
  • You want to choose a weight distribution (WD) system so that your trailer's fully-loaded tongue weight (TW) plus the weight of anything in the truck that sits behind the rear axle, like a generator or loaded cooler, falls into the middle of its operating range. Say your loaded TW is 1000-lbs and you have a 100-lb generator in the back of the truck; in this case you'll want a system like the Reese Strait-Line # RP66130 that is rated for TW from 800- to 1500-lbs.

  • Is Curt TruTrack # C17500 Weight Distribution System Good for Car Hauler with 1000-lb Tongue Weight
  • All weight distribution (WD) systems like the Curt TruTrack # C17500 work over a tongue weight (TW) range of several hundred pounds. This particular system works with TW from 800 to 1000-lbs and ideally the total TW should fall right in the middle of the system's operating range. A trailer's TW will usually be about 10 to 15-percent of its gross weight; this TW value tends to deliver the smoothest handling with the least trailer sway. At 8000-lbs gross trailer weight your TW could be...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendation for a Trailer with 1,300 lbs Tongue Weight
  • I would recommend the Strait-Line System part # RP66130 as it has a tongue weight range of 800 lbs - 1,500 lbs and has the only sway control on the market designed to fight sway before it starts. For a shank you would want the part # RP54970 and then for a hitch ball # C40086. Overall this would be the best setup you could use for a trailer with a tongue weight of 1,290 lbs.

Suspension kits like jounce, leaf or air helper springs can help too but a WD system will do the best job of moving trailer tongue weight forward to the front axle to prevent sag.

If a hitch were rated right at 10K and the trailer was 10K I do recommend going to a higher capacity high for safety. But it also depends on the towing capacity of the truck because if the truck is rated lower than the hitch you still have to go by that lower rating.
