Nylon cap is replaceable.

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.




by:

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.




by:

I thought it would be a better hitch for the money. It does not fit tight in the hitch receiver so it is a bit sloppy. The height adjustment and having a 2” and 2 5/16” ball is nice and convenient.


Comments
I recommend using an anti rattle device like part # C27UR
Curt Anti-Rattle Hitch Clamp for 2" Hitches
$24.66
to help reduce movement in the hitch receiver.

by:

The retaining pin would not fit in the hole to secure the ball mount assembly. I have ordered the locking pins to replace the unit supplied. If it doesn't work I'm returning. So far very poor workmanship


Comments
I would like to contact the manufacturer and I wanted to see if you could send a picture to show that it is not a fit.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 01/10/2022
I was able to replace the pin with the new units I ordered and it now works properly.
-- comment by: Scott - 01/10/2022
Thank you for letting me know. The first pin should have worked however if you are happy now with the locking pin then that is fine. If you experience any other issues, please reach out to us.

We really like the trailer hitch but the sticker with your name on it got skinned up can you send us a new sticker or two

Demonstrates high quality machining




by:

I bought this hitch to pull my horse trailer. The shipping was extremely fast and it looks great. I haven’t used it yet but I will be in a couple day to haul my mule to the vet. I expect this to perform as good as it looks!




by:

Highly recommend this beast of a hitch. I have used it for many different size trailers and the ease of adjustment and changing out ball sizes is fantastic. Do not hesitate if you are in the market. I loved this hitch so much that I bought their ultimate 5th wheel hitch when I bought my toy hauler.

Original statement stands, this thing is just awesome!

by:

The items I ordered arrived well packaged and very quickly. etrailers prices were very competitive and the products delivered were exactly what I ordered .




by:

Very well made. Easy to remove. Overall, a very good product.




by:

Hitch is excellent quality and fit. Very easy adjustment. Only suggestion I have is that it should have a longer shaft. The step on my truck doesn’t come down all the way before it hits the mudflats. The one complaint I have is in order to get a lock for the pin that holds the ball on you also have to get their hitch lock pin. Only sold as a set. If Andersen is going to do that they should include a coupler lock so all 3 would be keyed the same.




by:

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.


Comments
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.

in right on time to let Santa put it under the tree. Thank you!




by:

Solid. Does as advertised. No rattling or knocking. And it still looks like new. Happy I made this choice to accommodate different trailer tongue configurations/heights. Can always adjust for a level ride all around.




by:

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. Both appear to be made very well. I used the Rapid Hitch the next day and it worked great. Very happy with the hitch, ball, and the hitch lock and adjustment pin lock and etrailer.com.




by:

Hitch works great, no problems installing and like the adjustability of the system. Down side is that they have legs and will walk away if you don’t lock both the receiver and the riser so you have to buy two hitch locks.




by:

Plastic piece fell off


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. The ball mount does have a 1 year warranty. We also carry the replacement ball caps. The ball cap for the 2 inch ball is part # AM3664-2
Replacement Nylon Cap for Greaseless HardBall Hitch Ball with 2" Diameter
$5.64
and for the 2 and five sixteenth ball is it part # AM3664-2516
Replacement Nylon Cap for Greaseless HardBall Hitch Ball with 2-5/16" Diameter
$5.61

Perfect !!! The Rapid Hitch is an excellent example of American Quality ... the product is easy to install, easy to adjust for different trailer heights, and should be very durable with the greaseless balls and totally aluminum mount. I am very satisfied.
etrailer.com was very prompt with the shipping ... everything arrived in a sturdy box and well packaged to prevent damage.
As a result of this purchase and my satisfaction with etrailer.com I have made a couple additional orders for my trailering needs.




by:

I have a Rapid Hitch already and I love it I just need to because I have two trucks and get tired of not having the hitch in the truck I in. They are a very convenient way to haul trailers with different size balls and not have to have multiple hitches. etrailer was an awesome company to order from very timely. They keep you well-informed of when your order is shipped and when you will receive it. I will definitely order from them again




by:

I was very happy with the customer service and the follow up on the order. Excellent customer service and expedited shipping..




by:

Slips in the trailer like butter. Quite. Heavy duty and well made. Purchase the Rapid Hitch lock set. Standard locks wont work. Like buying from Etrailer. Fast delivery and great support.

Love the Teflon ball, no messy grease. The hitch is easy to adjust and easy to clean.


Comments
I still love this hitch. Easy to adjust, clean and stow
Armen H - 04/26/2018


by:

Fabulous! Extremely easy to change heights and sizes of the ball for my different trailers. Nice smooth towing with the greaseless balls.




by:

Great set of balls! This was exactly what I was needing.




by:

After having this Hitch I would not go back to a pain hitch. Looks great on my truck, works great with my trailer, easy adjustable to fit other (friends) trailers, and your shin is going to thank you!

See what our Experts say about this Andersen Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Can Trailer Circuits Ground Correctly When a Greaseless Ball is Used
    Trailers that are grounding through the hitch ball are not grounding correctly. There is a ground circuit on trailer wiring that is supposed to be grounding all of the electronics of the trailer. Do some trailer still ground through the hitch and ball mount? Yes, but that's not how they should be grounding. If you've ever seen a trailer that the taillights flicker when they hit bumps its usually because the lights are grounding through the frame and hitch and when the coupler of the trailer...

Depending on the orientation of the mount in the receiver on your truck the overall distance from the bottom of the ball mount with the ball in the furthest position is 3-1/2 to 9-1/2 inches.

The correct ball for this is the Rapid Hitch Ball with 1-7/8" Diameter - Greaseless AlumiBall # AM3452.

  • Aluminum Ball Mount For 2 Inch Hitch With 2-5/16 and 1-7/8 Hitch Balls
    There is an aluminum ball mount that will allow you to use both 1-7/8" and 2-5/16" hitch balls, but since there isn't a combo ball with those sizes together, you'd have to get the 1-7/8" ball separately. So you have two options depending on the drop you need: - 4" Drop: Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3461 - 5-1/2" Drop: Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit # AM3405 Both ball mounts come with a combo 2" and 2-5/16" hitch ball, so you'd also need to add...

  • Is the Andersen Greaseless Ball Cap Compatible with a Regular Hitch Ball?

There is not a Greaseless ball that measures 2 inch diameter with a 1-1/4 inch shank. My recommendation is to use the 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 and then use White Grease Hitch Ball Lube # 58117 to reduce friction and noise. Your option to get that greaseless ball is only in a ball mount like the Rapid Hitch Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount Kit w/ 2 Greaseless Balls...

    I have a solution for you, but the Fastway # FA49-00-5625 does not have a combo ball with 1-7/8" and 2" hitch balls available. Instead, you'll want to use a Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount like the # AM3405 with a combo ball for 1-7/8" and 2" couplers like the Greaseless Combo Ball # AM3436; the steel version combo ball without the greaseless caps is # AM3425. This will allow you the flexibility to tow a trailer with both a 1-7/8" and 2" coupler.
