Video Transcript for Review of Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3414

Today we're taking a look at a Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount from Andersen. This adjustable aluminum alloy ball mount fits inside of a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. It's a strong lightweight unit. It looks great, and it won't rust or corrode.Now, this ball mount is able to adjust in one inch increments, providing up to a ten inch drop and an 11 inch rise. I'll explain those more towards the end of the video. This is recommended for vehicles with greater than 24 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening of the hitch, when your vehicle's in the level position.

So that's going to really include a lot of pick-up trucks and lifted vehicles.This allows towing of various trailers using the same ball mount. So not only can you adjust it, but you also have two hitch balls on the unit. The adjustability is nice, because that's going to ensure that your vehicle is always as level as possible with the trailer that you're towing. Then also, you have a two inch ball and a one and 7/8th inch ball to tow trailers that may have different coupler sizes.This does have two zinc plated steel hitch balls. It's a two-sided ball platform.

Again, you have a one and 7/8th and a two inch ball. The hitch ball's secure to the unit with this adjustment pin and clip. Then the hitch ball's secure to the platform with an internal pin. That allows for easy interchangeability. You can actually remove the pin, remove the balls, and additional ball sizes can be purchased to replace the originals.So to make your adjustments you'll need to pull this pin and clip.

That allows this unit to adjust up and down the shank there, and it can be completely removed from it. Here on the back side you can see that pin, so if you remove that pin it actually allows this solid piece hitch ball to be removed from the platform.To switch between the ball sizes, you simply just take this off, flip it, and then reinstall it.So it's a very easy system to use. It's very quick when needing to make your adjustments.Now you will need a hitch pin and clip, or a hitch lock, to secure it inside the receiver to the rear hitch. Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com. Again, the product's an aluminum construction.

Hitch balls are steel. And, it's all made in the U.S.A.It fits a two inch hitch. It is compatible with a two and a half inch hitch. You will need a two and a half inch to two inch reducer sleeve or adapter to make that happen. Those are sold separately and available at etrailer.com.The gross trailer weight, or gross towing weight, when using the one and 7/8th inch ball is 75,000 pounds and 8,000 pounds with the two inch ball. Then the unit itself is rated with a tongue weight capacity of 1,500 pounds.So if you're using it in the rise position, and if you have the platform at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 11 inches. That's measured from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, up to the top of that ball platform.Now, you'll notice that there's multiple slots for adjustment, so you can get a rise of anywhere from five inches to 11 inches in the rise position. In the drop position the max drop is 10 inches with it at it's lowest setting. Again, inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch, down to the top of the ball platform. You're drops go from four inches to ten inches. Again, increments of one inch when it comes to the adjustment. The measurement that we have from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the center of the hitch balls is around nine and 1/4 inches.That's going to do it for today's look at the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount from Andersen.

This hitch is fantastic. The universal size works well with any vehicle. It is solid, sturdy, there’s no “give” when towing. It doesn’t waiver in quality and craftsmanship. The fact that it has an interchangeable ball works out perfectly. I would recommend this hitch to everyone I know. 829292

George at etrailer got my order shipped the same day it was placed and I placed it in the late evening after dinner. The order arrived, on time, as scheduled. I am very pleased with my Andersen 10-inch drop trailer hitch, and want everyone to know what an "OUTSTANDING" service etrailer provided to me. I will certainly do business with etrailer again in the future, and I highly recommend etrailer for your towing needs. 529487

Product looks and feels great. Only reason it got a 4/5 is because a truck driver friend of mine told me that he had one and the shank wore down from rubbing on steel bc of the aluminum on steel receiver contact. I might rig up a thin steel collar for it to prevent any degradation down the road. Works great on my truck with 7 inches of lift and 35" tires. Buy the Andersen Stainless steel locking pins for it so it doesn't walk off. New pins have better corrosion resistance and are less easily picked by thieves than standard barrel locks, plus they match the look. 218532


Comments
After a year of use I love it. I hear too many problems from friends with other hitches and Im very satisfied with this purchase. It has stayed clean and shiny with just normal car washing and it still adjusts up and down smoothly. Still plenty sturdy and no more wiggle on the shaft then it had when I got it. Highly recommend getting the upgraded stainless steel locking pins from Andersen. Both locks are matching for each pin and far more secure than the standard barrel locks.

Great quality Ball Mount Kit. I had read review about not being able to mount it upward on the RAM2500 because the bumper was out by 1/2" too much. In my case it's about 1/8" off but my truck is very high (That's why I got the 10" kit) and I can't imagine ever using it in the upward position anyway. It does rattle a lot but I think I can fix that with some thin rubber strips. It shines so much that now the hitch attracts attention more than the truck, make sure you get the lock pins if you don't want to get it stolen... 153792

Have not towed yet so can't speak about performance however hitch appears very solid. I can say that its very trick. Who doesn't love machined billet aluminum. I sprung for the locks as well since it's not exactly cheap. I will say that etrailer had the best price I could find on the web. Shipping was fast and free with great communication. 30166

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. 502399

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This is a must have for full-time trailer hauling. No ball grease needed. Easy to adjust for a level trailer, smooth towing. I increased my trailer tires to light duty truck tires (a little taller tire), for heaver loads & ease of mind to haul at 75 mph speed. This hitch allow me to fine tune the trailer ball height for best setup on my heavy duty Toyota Tundra truck. 426553

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Picked up an aluminum burr in my finger when unpacking the unit. There are some unfinished type of circles that are quite sharp and need to be filed smooth. Other than that, the unit looks great and I'm anxious to put it to use. 242407


Comments
The hitch pin did not push through when I flipped the ball mount over into the receiver. I contacted the manufacturer twice and after two more replacements, the ball mount worked as advertised. The hitched looked great during the summer, but the winter road salt and sand took its toll, But at least its not all rusted and overall Im satisfied with the product.

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. 321741

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.

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. 719473

Review from a similar Rapid Hitch in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Hello The hitch works great as viewed in the enclosed pictures. If inverted it hits the bumper, of my Dodge 2500. The section that goes into the receiver is about 1/2" too short and hits the bumper. I have not tried it on my other vehicle to see if this is a problem. Kind Regards Leon D 145385


Comments
Leon, I have the same problem and am looking for a resolution. Ive called Andersen my CA sales rep and left a message.Id even be interested in paying for a custom shank length to be built for me needs. Well see, fingers crossed.

Johnny thanks for the feedback. In case you did not know we do also offer some ball mounts in extended lengths (long and extra long) for this exact reason. For a long ball mount that has the same rise and drop as this Rapid Hitch ball mount, check out the Diversi-Tech # DTSTBM7025
Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 11" Rise
$253.34
. For this ball mount the distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the upright bar is 4-1/4 inches, vs. the Rapid Hitch # AM3413 is 3 inches.

  • Replacement Pin For Andersen Rapid Hitch
    I may have a solution for you, but the screw in ball for the adjustment pin is not an available replacement part. With that said, you can use the Replacement Adjustment Pin and Clip for Rapid Hitch AM3400 Series # AM3431 as a new pin that does not have the screw in ball on top of it.

  • Choosing the Correct 1-7/8 Inch and 2 Inch Dual Ball Mount
    There are dual ball mounts that have both a 1-7/8" and 2" hitch ball available, though you need to determine the amount of rise or drop you need in order to choose the correct ball mount. For example, the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount Kit # AM3411 fits a 2" receiver and offers up 5-1/2" of drop or 6-1/2" of rise. The Rapid Hitch # AM3414 is another option and offers up to 10" of drop. In order to choose the correct ball mount, there are a couple measurements you'll need to take....

  • Adjustable Ball Mount with 1-7/8 and 2 inch Ball
    The Diversi-Tech Adjustable Solid-Tow Aluminum Ball Mount, due to the high capacity is only offered with the 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch balls. We do offer some alternatives, however. The Curt Curt Multi-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount, part # D900 offers either a rise or drop of 5-3/4 inches. If you prefer the all-aluminum construction, part # AM3414 which offers a maximum rise of 11 inches or drop of 10 inches. If you do not need that much rise or drop, part # AM3411 offers a maximum rise...
