Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 63835 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 63835. This is the Tow Ready Hitch Ball with the 2 5/16th inch diameter. This is going to be known as a medium shank. It's going to have a gross towing weight of 12,000 pounds. You're going to have the 2 5/16th inch diameter ball, this is going to work with couplers that have a 2 5/6ths socket size. The shank diameter is this portion here, it's going to measure an inch and a quarter. If we take a measurement of the shank length, measuring from the bottom of the platform to the end of the threaded portion, that's going to measure 2 3/4 of an inch.

The shank diameter is important to keep in mind as well when choosing a ball mount. You want to make sure that the ball hole size on the ball mount matches up with the shank diameter and again this one is going to give us a diameter of an inch and a quarter. You're going to get the lock washer and the nut. Those are included. Again, gross towing weight is 12,000 pounds. When installing this on the ball mount, you want to make sure that the ball mount has a platform thickness of at least three quarters of an inch.

When it comes to the actual hitch ball, this is going to be made from a steel construction and it's going to have a zinc plated finish on it and that's designed to stand up well against rust and corrosion. It's also going to feature the wrench flats here on each side. That way you can get a wrench on there and tighten it down accordingly. This will need to be torqued to the specifications listed by the manufacturer. When you get this hitch ball, it's going to come with a little instructional tag that's installed on the shank. You want to be sure to remove that, but it's going to tell you the torque rating and all the instructions for this particular hitch ball.

Once you have this through your ball hole on the mount, the draw bar thickness where that platform is going to be sitting right underneath this platform, then you'd place on your lock washer followed by your nut. Then you'd want to get everything tightened down and torqued to specifications. That's going to do it for our review of part number 63835. This is the Tow Ready Hitch Ball with the 2 5/16th inch ball diameter. .

  • Weight Distribution for Travel Trailer Towed by 2014 Nissan Frontier
  • Most Class III and above trailer hitches have a higher capacity weight rating with the use of weight distribution on the trailer. I cannot tell you what the weight distribution towing capacity of the hitch on your Frontier is but if the trailer hitch is rated for weight distribution the tongue weight capacity may be higher than 610 lbs. However, the use of a weight distribution system on the trailer will not lower the trailer's tongue weight. The good news, you do not have to factor the...

  • Availability of a Heavy Duty Greaseless Hardball with a 12,000 Pound Capacity
  • We do have two options for you, but I spoke with my contact at Andersen Manufacturing the maker of the Greaseless HardBall and found that they do not make a 12,000 pound capacity greaseless ball at this time. The Hitch Ball with 2-5/16" Diameter and Medium Shank, 12,000 lbs GTW - Chrome, item # 19286, and the Hitch Ball with 2-5/16" Diameter and Medium Shank, 12,000 lbs GTW - Zinc, item # 63835, would both be suitable for your application as long as the 1-1/4 inch shank will work for...

  • We do carry a couple balls with 12,000 GTW ratings that are 1-1/4 inch diameter shanks. They are both 2-5/16 inch diameter balls but check out the balls part # 19286 and # 63835. If you are looking for a 2 inch diameter ball the highest rated ball we have is the # A-90 at 10,000 lbs GTW.

  • Recommending A No Drill Weight Distribution System for 1960s Airsteam Trailer
  • When selecting a weight distribution system the primary issue that you first need to figure out is what the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight is of your rig. This would include any weight in the tow vehicle that is located behind the rear axle The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # EQ37100ET that you referenced in your question would be an ideal system for your 1960s Airstream. However, the Equal-i-zer model weight...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • I appreciate the detailed information concerning your 1999 Grand Cherokee and 2017 Palomini. With a loaded hitch weight of 450 lbs and 200 lbs of cargo behind your axle, your total tongue weight is going to be roughly 650 lbs. With this in mind, the best weight distribution system for you is going to be the Reese Strait-Line # RP66083, which is designed for tongue weights between 400 and 800 lbs, has a gross towing weight of 10,000 lbs and will allow you to back up. The Strait-Line also...

  • Does the Curt Trailer Hitch #C14002 Allow the Spare Tire to Function on 2011 Ford F-150
  • After confirming with Curt, their Class IV 2 inch trailer receiver # C14002 does not interfere with the accessibility of the spare tire. However, they do recommend removing the spare tire for the installation process, and then replacing once installation is complete. Please note that this hitch does not include a ball mount, trailer ball, pin and clip, or wiring. Depending on your exact towing needs I would suggest the following parts that are compatible with your 2011 Ford F-150:...
