Create a more stable ride for your tow vehicle and trailer with a weight distribution hitch. Adding spring bars to your towing system applies leverage, which transfers the load that is pushing down on the rear of your vehicle to all the axles on both your tow vehicle and your trailer. This distributes the weight evenly to reduce the strain on the vehicles and give you a level ride. It also improves your braking ability and allows you to tow the maximum capacity of your hitch.


Selecting a Weight Distribution System

The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. If the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they will create a rigid ride, which can result in a bouncing trailer. If, on the other hand, the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless.


To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. Then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system.


Dependent Sway Control

Weight Distribution Built-In Sway Control

The Husky Center Line TS is a weight distribution system that works to keep your trailer in line with your tow vehicle to help prevent sway before it begins. Most of this work is achieved in the system head, which is responsible for about 75 percent of the tension in the system. Because the Center Line TS has so much tension in the head that holds the trailer steady at the connection point rather than relying on the frame brackets to keep the trailer in line, there is less popping and shifting while you drive. This weight distribution system is also noticeably quieter than similar models, which depend mostly on the steel-on-steel friction of the spring bars in the frame brackets to prevent sway.


Center Line TS Anti-Sway Frame Brackets

The spring bars attach to the trailer frame with fixed, sturdy steel brackets. They sit on top of the brackets instead of being suspended by chains like the bars that are on traditional weight distribution systems. The chain suspensions typically allow a good deal of side-to-side play in the system. The Center Line TS brackets eliminate that unwanted movement of the spring bars to better hold your trailer in line. In addition, the Center Line TS brackets create the steel-on-steel friction discussed earlier, which chain suspension systems are incapable of doing. When each spring bar on the Center Line TS system moves forward or backward, or side to side, it rubs along the bracket and creates friction. The resistance created by this action limits the movement of the spring bar, thus preventing further side-to-side movement of the trailer. So, while the Center Line TS's system head prevents most of the sway before it starts, the frame brackets create a backup system to help prevent any additional movement.


Head Tilt Adjustment

Washer-Style Head Tilt Adjustment

The Center Line TS system uses the traditional washer-style adjustment method to achieve the perfect tilt. Controlling the head tilt helps you to fine-tune the leverage and maximize the amount of tension in the whole system. To adjust the tilt, simply slide washers onto the spacer rivet and insert the rivet into the head assembly. To increase the angle, add a washer. To reduce the angle, remove a washer.


Weight Distribution Hitch Shank Attachment

Once you get the desired tilt, bolt the head onto the weight distribution shank and slide the shank into your hitch receiver. The shank has multiple bolt holes, which allow you to raise or lower the head so that you can get the hitch ball in a good position to connect with your trailer. The hitch ball comes attached and pre-torqued. The weight distribution shank is included, but a standard shank from any manufacturer will also work with this system.


Tapered, Steel Spring Bars

Trunnion-Style Spring Bar Stabilizers

The Center Line TS spring bars are made of hardened, heat-treated steel. Thermal and mechanical energy are applied to the steel, resulting in a finished product that is durable and resilient to impacts. The thick, round ends of the spring bars work within the limits of the tight trunnions in the system head.


Tapered Friction Sway-Control Spring Bars

As they extend out, they taper down to flat, wide bars that sit securely on the frame brackets. The result is a system that is rigid enough to effectively distribute the weight of your trailer, while still allowing enough flex within the bars to ensure a smooth ride. Husky Center Line spring bars are interchangeable with each other. If you buy a new trailer or tow vehicle and you need to increase or decrease your capacity, you can simply buy new spring bars instead of purchasing a whole new system.


Attaching the Brackets and Spring Bars

The frame brackets of the Center Line TS are easy to install and simple to use. They clamp securely onto your trailer frame, and easily adjust up and down for multiple height options. Conveniently position them anywhere between 28-1/2" and 30-1/2" back from the center of the ball socket on your coupler. This helps to avoid frame-mounted objects such as gas tanks, toolboxes, generators, or battery boxes.


Center Line TS Spring Bar Lift Tool

The included spring bar lift tool is designed to make it easy to put the spring bars in place on the brackets.


Spring Bar Lift Tool Handle

The handle of the tool is round instead of flat for a more comfortable grip as you lift the bars. On the opposite end of the lift tool is a square cutout that can be used to tighten the outer bolts of the frame brackets.


L-Shaped Spring Bar Retaining Pin

Once you position the spring bars onto the brackets, each bar is secured with a removable L-pin. This pin is tethered to the bracket so that you won't lose it. Each Center Line TS bracket has built-in pegs near the end of the platform that help to hold the spring bar in place so that the L-pin doesn't have to. These pegs also act as a buffer between the spring bar and L-pin to limit any shifting and rattling. This also keeps the spring bars from rubbing against the L-pins, which could cause them to wear down and develop sharp edges.


Low Maintenance

Steel Trunnion Bearing Bolts

The system head is made of 2 pieces that come apart for easy maintenance. The trunnion hex bolts come lubricated and can be greased occasionally as needed. After 500 miles, you should check the torque on the trunnion hex bolts and the shank bolts to keep the system operating effectively.

I bought this distribution hitch a year ago and it has been the best investment I've made with regards to my RV. Prior to installing the hitch, towing the camper with even the slightest wind was a nightmare. Now I only experience sway on the rarest of occasions and even then it is only slight. I highly recommend this product. 401016

The customer service at etrailer is fantastic...my original order was not in stock, so they called me and suggested this product at no extra charge, shipping was quick. The trailer I use this on is 23' 6,000 lb (loaded) travel trailer. So far, I used it on 2 long trips (6,000 miles total + several smaller trips in between) and absolutely love it. I can back up with no problem with the weight distribtution connected, it is fairly easy to install, takes some practice to disconnect (I don't have an electric tongue jack), the ball is bolted on but I had no issues with it, all the components are super heavy duty, the only complaint I have are the hangers where the rods sit...rubs metal on metal...no issues so far though, I just add some grease. Without this distribution system, i could feel the trailer sway in high winds and trucks passing...which made me nervous. Now, with this distribution system, it feels rock solid... there was some sway when we were in the high desert of Idaho with winds at about 30 mph (according to weather radio). No issues going down long steep winding grades...the steepest being 8%. 409211

Well this unit works well but a bear to hitch up. Very heavy and requires a bit of strength to hitch up the bars and remove them. Not really a good choice for elderly, like me, because of the bars. Makes a lot of noise when turning but nothing that bother me. Limited adjustments to lower ball before having to purchase additional parts. Price was the driving factor and it works so really can’t complain. 816545

I am so pleased with this hitch. It is a great value, and very high quality. It drastically improved the handling on my 2017 Ford Expedition EL towing a 5000lb camper. The installation wasn't too difficult, and instructions were easy to follow. The only person for whom I may not recommend this product is a senior citizen or disabled person. It takes some muscle to move the bars in and out, and if the truck/ trailer aren't perfectly level, the low-side bar can be challenging to lift on/off the bracket. Also, if you don't completely understand the mechanics of it, you should have a pro install it and explain how to operate. 808605

Works great! Make sure, though, that you don't just rely upon the so-called "technician" at your RV center to install it, however. When finished, mine tried to convince me that my camper being a lot lower in back than in front was the way it was supposed to be, then tried to charge me $75 for installation! I refused of course, took it home and reconfigured it myself...but properly. So, do your homework on these things...in general, your camper and truck should be level from front to back, period! That said, the spring bars are a little loud, however, but work well. 681705

Talked to Preston about what I needed to tow a trailer that has a lot of sway. He is very informed about his products. The way my trailer is designed we might of had some problems of clearance with the antisway bars. We figured that the bars should clear. I was wanting a antisway hitch that was to heavy for what we are towing. But Preston’s knowledge directed me to a lighter hitch that would work better for the weights we are pulling. And I have already received my hitch. Great job Preston. Thank you for all your help. You are a credit to yourself. Good job etrailer. Preston if you need a job in Springfield ILLinois give me a call. My business can use a person like you. Young men like you will keep America Great Thanks 606144

After a year I can say that I have been pleased with this setup. Previously had that cheap round bar and chain system that camper dealers seem to go to. The spring pin failed while in transit and dropped the bar. Used that system for 4 years. It was always noisy. These bars are pin secured, can't drop out. It's very quiet compared to my old system (except for rainy days... she does groan when wet). I only wish there was some way to touch up the finish. 597892

Review from a similar Center Line in Weight Distribution Hitch


etrailer service was very fast, received the hitch within 3 days. Hitch is very well made and looks quite strong. Installation took about 3 hours, which included multiple adjustments to fine tune the level of my tow vehicle and trailer. Instructions could have included some more info in this regard. I have not towed my trailer yet so cannot comment on performance. I have a 2018 R Pod trailer (3800# gross wt) towing with a 2013 Honda Pilot (4500# tow rating). 644060

  • Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2018 Jayco Jay Flight 242BHSW
    The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Typically tongue weight is 10-15...

    You are correct the Husky weight distribution shank part # HT31518 is not capable of a 6-1/2 inch drop.

  • Lower Capacity Spring Bars for a Husky Weight Distribution System
    The 600 pounds of tongue weight is the dry tongue weight.

    The Reese # RP54970 weight distribution shank would be 4-1/2 inches longer than the 7-3/4 inch long shank that was included with your Husky Centerline weight distribution kit.

Both the shanks I recommended have hole spacing of 1-1/4 inch, measured center to center which should be the same as your old shank.
