Video Transcript for etrailer Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - EBMK25518 Review

Today were going to review part number EBMK25518. This is the Etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2 -inch hitches. This kit will work with the 2 class 5 trailer hitch receivers. The kit will include a ball mount, a 2 5/16 trailer hitch ball and the Etrailer.com Ball Mount Bag.First thing well talk about is the ball mount. This ball mount is part number RP45323. It has a five-inch drop.

Now the drop would be measured from this flat surface to this flat surface. So we put a tape measure on it, we get to say five-inch drop. And if this is put in upside down the other way to give you a rise it would be a 3 -inch rise which would be from this flat surface to this surface where the ball is mounted. So, again, if we put a tape measure on that it would be 3 -inch rise. This ball mount does have a gross towing weight capacity of 18,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 2,000 pounds.The next item well talk about is the trailer hitch ball.

This is a hitch ball diameter of 2 5/16 just stamped on the top of the ball. So, if the diameter is 2 5/16, it is part number 63840. It does come with the nut and the washer which is used to tighten the hitch ball down to the ball mount. The nut size on this is 1 7/8 inches. Ill give you a measurement on the shank.

The shank would be this part right here. The diameter of the shank will measure 1 inches. The overall length of the shank will be 2 inches. The gross towing weight capacity on this hitch ball would be 20,000 pounds.And the last item on this kit would be the Etrailer.com Ball Mount Bag, part number ETBMB. This is a durable bag that will work great not only for the ball mounts but for all of your towing equipments such as tie down straps, pins, clips, locks.

Strong handle makes it easy to carry and a large zipper opening which runs the whole length of the bag; makes it easy to store your items in there. This bag is made of a durable nylon material that will provide many years of use. The zipper is a no-hassle closure, very easy open and close. And again it does have a handle for transportation. A few dimension on this bag well do is the overall length which is 16 inches and the overall height this bag is 5 inches and the width will be four inches. And again with the bag open, makes it very easy to insert the ball mount into the bag and then close it shut. And that should do it for our review on part number EBMK25518. .

Perfect fit for my 2011 2500HD duramax and quality is very good. Drop is perfect for stock ride height. Solid and Heavy.

This baby is sooo solid you could use it to bench press! Came in a reasonable amount of time, was all it was described to be. Good product at a good price. I will shop with these folks again when I need something. 216613

Ball mount is solid and heavy. Purchased for use with a smaller cargo trailer, so the weight rating is overkill. I didn't want to use the 2" adapter on the receiver so I purchased this 2.5 inch mount. Fits nicely and am sure that it will hold up to whatever I throw at it. The chrome coating on the ball started wearing off after the first couple of hundred miles. 193552

This is a very stout product that instills confidence. The 2.5" size of this ball mount fits perfectly in my Chevy 2.5" hitch. I tow 10K+ pounds regularly and I'm much happier using this 2.5" instead of 2" ball mount with a sleeve. I used the 3" drop version of this part for three years and had no issues so I decided I would try the 5" drop for my new truck (lifted this one slightly higher). If I had one complaint (it isn't really) it's that the ball mount itself seems to have been ground on with a grinding wheel prior to being finished. This makes the finished surface of the drop arm rough and uneven. It works fine, but I'm a little OCD and I feel like for $90 I should get a part that looks as good as it performs. 160224

This ball mount and ball are the definitely heavy-duty. The bag, not so much. After one use, the ball has already lost a good bit of its chrome (I HATE chrome!), but will continue to function fine. Grease... The bag is only so-so, but does keep everything together nicely when not mounted in the receiver. Just wish it was made in the USA instead of China. 98481

  • Why Won't etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2" Hitches Fit Ford Factory 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver
    The reason the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2" Hitches # EBMK25518 will not fit the factory 2-1/2" hitch receiver on your 2018 Ford F-350 is that those receivers have edges which are a bit rounder than standard hitch receivers and this ball mount has square edges. I recommend checking out the Titan Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Receivers # 45123 which has a 5" drop and from the accompanying photo you can see how the shank has more rounded edges. With this ball mount you will want...

    The overall length for the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2" Hitches - 3-1/2" Rise or 5" Drop - 18,000 lbs Item # EBMK25518 is going to be 15-1/2". From the center of the pin hole to the center of the hole where the ball mounts is 10".

  • 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!

  • Ball Diameter/Shank Diameter and Length for the Ball in the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit # EBMK25518
    The ball that is included with the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit # EBMK25518 that you referenced is a 2-5/16 inch ball. In the second bullet point of the description that info is listed. The diameter of the shank is 1-1/4 inches and 2-3/4 inches long. Since this is sold as a kit and all the parts are compatible this information wasn't as easy to find. In the second bullet point the part number for the ball is listed (part # 63840) and on it's product page this info is listed.

  • 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. I have included a link to our FAQ article on choosing the right ball mount for you.

  • 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch for a 2000 GMC K3500 Dually
    For GM 2000 was a split model year. Prior to 2000 the trucks were either a C series for 2 wheel drive or K series for 4 wheel drive. Sierra was not a model at that time; it was just a trim level. In 2000 there were both C or K models and Sierra models but only for 1500 and 2500 series. In 2000 the 3500 would still have been a K3500 meaning that none of the hitches for the 2000 Sierras will fit. So for a 2000 GMC K3500 you can use 2-1/2 inch hitch # DT45506 as long as the truck is a long...

  • Recommended Class V Trailer Hitch For 2011 Ram 3500 Pickup
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2011 Ram 3500 is the Draw-Tite, part # DT45518. This is a Class V hitch and it has a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. Per the attached instructions no mention is made of a bumper so it should fit just fine. You might also be interested in a ball mount kit like part # EBMK25518. This has a ball mount that features a 3-1/2 inch rise or a 5-inch drop and also includes a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. For a hitch pin lock I recommend part # e98881.

  • Will Draw-Tite 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Fit a 1997 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually with Step Bumper
    A roll pan bumper will not have any sort of step on it. A regular bumper will have that center "step" where the license plate sits. It sounds like you have a standard bumper so you would not have to worry about that at all. I have linked a help article that shows drawings of different bumper styles. Some of the fancier trim models of the later Rams might have come with a roll pan bumper, such as a Rumble Bee or some version of the Sport. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit #...

I reached out to the manufacturer to confirm the fit on your cab and chassis dually model. You may also want to consider the etrailer Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2" Hitches - 3-1/2" Rise or 5" Drop - 18,000 lbs # EBMK25518 and wiring harness # 118317 for a basic 4-way flat trailer connector.

  • Ball Mount with 5 Inch Drop Needed to Tow Trailer Level
    Usually the tongue weight of the trailer will pull down the rear of the vehicle a little and it is possible it could be enough to make the trailer level. If that does not happen then I do recommend going with a ball mount with more drop. For a fixed ball mount I recommend the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2-1/2" Hitches - 3-1/2" Rise or 5" Drop - 18,000 lbs # EBMK25518 . If you have a 2 inch receiver than an adjustable ball mount such as # MT70380 is your best option. This one has...
