Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 63847 Review

Today we'll be taking a look at part number 63847. This is the Tow Ready hitch ball with the of 2 5/16 inch diameter and a medium shank, rated at 7500 pounds. The diameter of our shank is right at an inch, and the length of our shank is 2 1/8 long. This is going to fit ball mounts with a thickness of 3/8 of an inch to 7/8 of an inch. It has this nice strong finish which is going to help it stand up against the elements, and again it's rated at 7500 pounds. We'll go ahead and show you how it is installs. What you do is you take your ball mount and take your ball.

Slide it through the hole. Put on the lock washer and secure it with the knot. Now, you will want it to be sure to go and twerk it down to the manufacturer's recommendations. Once we would have that finger tight, what you do is you take your inch, secure it here at the holds. Take another inch and twerk it down to the specifications from the manufacturer.

Now, it's going to complete today's review of part number 63847, the hitch ball from Tow Ready. .

etrailer.com has the best customer service I have had the pleasure to work with in a very long time. Lets face it, everyone makes mistakes, but how you deal with those mistakes is what makes the difference. I have dealt with companies that did not take responsibility for their mistakes and it wound up costing me time and money. etrailer on the other hand quickly admitted their mistake and worked to correct the error with as little impact to me, the customer, as possible. I had a specific problem I was trying to address and I had been on several different sites looking for a solution. I was not finding what I needed. I saw some thing that may have worked for me on the etrailer site, but I needed more information then was available on their web site. So I called and got a Customer Service rep named Mike almost immediately. Mike took his time and answered my questions, and when it looked like the item I was looking at would not work for me, he looked though their inventory and found the exact item I needed to solve my problem. When I looked up the part # on the web, to view the part and see if it was what I was looking for, I found it was well documented and even had the one dimension that I needed to verify whether or not it would work for me, when most other sites did not provide that information. It was a great experience and I finally found what I needed. Thanks Mike! Then when my part arrived, I was impressed with the packaging. This heavy metal stuff was packaged better then a lot of fragile stuff I have received from other companies. I opened the package I found they had accidentally shipped one wrong part. The part number on the part did not match my order but it was basically the same part, but a slightly different size for the shank ( I can see where this would have been an easy mistake to make). I called and again had a great experience with their customer service (Katie). She answered the phone quickly and politely and when I explained that I got the wrong part, she apologized for the error and offered to make it right. They would send the correct part along with a prepaid label to return the wrong one. I am very pleased with all my dealings with etrailer and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. The ball mount and ball I got solved my problem by providing something I was not able to locate elsewhere, and the prices were good as well.

My trailer has cut through some of the chrome but the ball is holding up very well. We do not grease this one as we have with some in the past due to pulling it out and carrying it around a lot as we switch out sizes of hitches in the receiver for different trailers. Using a 10K hydraulic trailer on this ball and there are no signs of real wear on the ball itself.

I was so impressed with how easy it was to make the purchase of my trailer hitch and wiring kit, and it was so much cheaper than my local trailer hitch people were charging. The YouTube videos made the attachment process much easier. Because I was nervous about whether or not I was ordering all the right parts online, I called eTrailer, and a nice person went through my order with me. Turns out the ball I bought was 2" and I should have bought a 1-7/8 ball. That was really my fault, but I wish the sales clerk had mentioned I needed to check that. Still, for an absolute novice at this kind of stuff, the entire experience was great, and I can wholeheartedly recommend eTrailer to any other novices out there who want to add a hitch to their vehicles!

Fit as described, put on my brand new drop hitch!

I recently ordered a new Curt receiver hitch, ball, and a 4 inch drop receiver to put on a 2001 Gmc Sierra 1500. The truck had an old hitch on it for the last 10 years and couldn`t even get the receiver out. It had a closed end which always got rusted up so I went for a new receiver hitch. The worst part was getting the old hitch off. The new one bolted right up perfectly and shipping was a day earlier than expected. Great company, great service, great price, need I say anymore. If you need trailer hitch parts this is the place to go.

Ordering on line was a breeze -- everything was explained in the descriptions and the photos were clear. I received the product quickly and I appreciated the post-sale communication to let me know the status of my order. I was impressed by the smooth welds and the finish on both the ball and the mount. I expect they will give me many years of care-free use. Thanks! PS No photos yet -- we pick up our trailer next week and I'll snap a few then and get one off to you!

Well made and the finish is very nice. The threads are smooth and there are wrench flats on the ball side, makes tightening the nut easier. It should be noted that the load rating on this one is 7500 lbs, due to the one inch shank. A good value at Etrailer.

Both options feature the same 7,500 pound towing weight capacity. Just keep in mind that the hitch ball does come pre-torqued from the factory with the unit in the drop position. It will require a bit of force to remove the ball so that you can flip the mount but you can certainly do this if needed. Otherwise you can simply order...

Or, for a maximum 8 inch rise and 6 inch drop you can add the Replacement Ball Platform for Gen-Y Glyder Ball Mount # 325-GH-12010. This will give you a much smoother ride than a traditional ball mount due to its inner bar that is surrounded by rubber cords to absorb the shock that occurs when towing.

    I spoke with Gen-Y about the Gen-Y Glyder Shock Absorbing Ball Mount part # 325-GH-12001 and they informed me that it can indeed be used with a trailer that has surge brakes. Therefore, the up and down cushioning mechanism will not have any affect on the in and out mechanism of the surge brake actuator. If you need a hitch ball as well, you can use part # 40038 for 2" or part # 63847 for 2-5/16".

Looking at your pictures I think you have a Blue Ox SwayPro system, like part # BXW0753. If I'm correct then you need a standard 2-5/16 inch ball with either a 1 or 1-1/4 inch shank. Beyond that the choice is yours so part # 63847 is a good option for a a 1 inch or part # 63840 for a 1-1/4 inch.

    Typically you will experience sway from your trailer when the trailer isn't loaded properly. It is encouraging that your engine is mainly over the axle, but it would be best to verify that the tongue weight (TW) of your trailer is 10-15% of the loaded weight of your trailer. A properly loaded trailer is your first step into reducing trailer sway.

The ball mount is rated for up to 5,000 lbs n the drop position so you simply need to use a hitch ball rated for 3,750 lbs or more. I recommend the 2 inch ball # 63845 or the 2-5/16 inch ball # 63847 depending on which matches your coupler. Both are rated for 7,500 lbs so they will work well. The Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount...

  • How Much Does the Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System # RP66558 Weigh
    The Reese Steadi-Flex Weight Distribution System # RP66558 has a shipping weight of 73 lbs so when you take away the packaging that leaves you with about 70 lbs. Although it would seem that you would need to include the weight of the weight distribution system in your calculations you actually only need to add up the loaded tongue weight of your trailer as well as the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle.
