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.

Video Transcript for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System Manufacturer Demo

Hooking up a conventional trailer can introduce several forces to make things uncomfortable for the driver. The weight of the trailer tongue concentrated on the hitch ball not only lowers the rear of the truck it actually raises the front of the truck creating handling and steering problems. In addition to these vertical challenges cross winds and truck traffic also put lateral forces into play. Add some curvy roads or truck ruts, and you've got your hands full. What's needed is a trailer hitch system that can handle down forces through weight distribution and handle lateral forces with sway control. Husky Center Line TS hitch system does both in a very light, compact system that is remarkably quiet.

Husky's engineers had several goals in mind when they designed the TS. To make the product both strong and light, Husky's hitch builders forged a single piece top plate of 1035 steel which is a super strong material with excellent fatigue property. The top plate is strongly complemented with trunnions of hardened 1045 steel. The round straight spring bars are designed to give a superior fit and appearance. The tighter tolerances allow the TS to immediately react to sway conditions. The head tapered spring bars and lift brackets we're all designed to work together to promote a stable, smooth ride. You've heard why the Center Line TS is smooth, stable, and strong, but it's what you don't hear that may be the best feature of all because Husky's engineers built quiet into the system from the very start.

Rather than concentrating anti-sway resistance into a small area, they added clamping forces to the trunnion mounts and used it in conjunction with limited bar-to-bracket friction to create just the right amount of quiet sway resistance. No lubrication is required. The hitch ball comes already attached, and no special tools are required for assembling the other components. The included lift tool can load and unload spring bars and also tighten the lift bracket bolts. The universal easy adjustment frame brackets are easy to install and simple to adjust. The included L-pins are tethered so you won't loose them.

The trunnion-style spring bars are matched to popular weight ranges. The Center Line TS provides excellent weight distribution with sway control in a design that is light, compact, and quiet with superior ground clearance and exceptional value.

The weight distribution and sway control work great and have held up well (over 6,000 miles on it). I was not prepared for how loud this hitch is. I have set it up different ways and it still pops and bangs every time I turn. So much so that people will come up to me and tell me the trailer was making a lot of noise. Without the bars it's a quite ride 581565

Over all it has been great. It has stopped the trailer from swaying, leveled the truck and trailer when loaded, and stopped the porpoising. The only down side I have is it is louder than I thought it would be. It pops and bangs so loud that its embarrassing to drive through my neighborhood at night
Dean - 11/10/2019


Thank you very much for the review, and I'm glad to hear that this weight distribution system is helping you to tow safely! The noise caused by metal-on-metal friction can be loud and is an unfortunate side-effect of weight distribution systems. I know it's not ideal, but you might consider removing the arms from the brackets prior to entering your neighborhood if you want to avoid the extra noise at night since you'll be moving slower through a neighborhood.

This is a great hitch assembly. I bought the heaviest rating even tho my trailer is only 5000 lbs. It is so stable when towing it gives me great confidence...no sway AT ALL. It creaks when making sharp turns, but that is simply the friction and torque of the anti-sway bars moving in the brackets. I get some looks in campgrounds when turning...doesn’t bother me a bit. If I decide to upgrade to a heavier trailer I’m all set. Old school beliefs that you need a 5th wheel to achieve great stability is no longer valid, thanks to this heavy duty hitch. 680059

Easy install on my 26’ Featherlite car hauler. Filled with six full size Harley’s, gear, and luggage pulled behind my Chevy Dually and I couldn’t be happier. Level ride, no sway whatsoever, and easy on off. Best pricing around. Customer for life! 493392

I just returned from a 500 mile round trip on interstate, state, and county roads across three state towing a 700 lb. tongue weight, 8000 lb GVW, 30' RV with a 2003 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4x4. One way without the Husky, the way back with the Husky. I will never pull a trailer again without my Husky! The truck was level and noticeably more stable on all road surfaces and conditions. 511244

With my 1/2 ton truck I was not very impressed with this hitches performance. I don't like using the tt electric Jack to lift the truck , still don't. Sway control not great. Now I have a one ton and and the hitch works well , no sway. Still don't like lifting truck with tt electric jack. Waiting for a jack failure as I feel I'm just asking for it. Overall I wish I had my old Reese back . The husky is showing wear at one year old . My Reese was 10 yrs old and didn't look like it was hardly used 337756

I haven't had a chance to use it much other than taking the trailer from where we bought it to where we store it, but it was pretty quick and easy to setup. Only took about 30 min or so without really knowing what I was doing to get it all hooked up. Once hooked up, my 1500 was able to pull the 31' camper without too much issue. While I only got going 45-50 mph, I didn't have any issues with swaying or anything and was able to keep everything hooked up while trying to squeeze it into the parking spot at the storage place, which made doing that less painful. 530140

I have had this product for a year. I really like the quality. It is well made and a great value. Here are some considerations. I would recommend an electric jack. You really have to crank your trailer and truck up in the air to get it high enough to put on your bars. I find engaging/disengaging the sway bars with the tool provided a bit unnerving and overly complex. I watched the youtube videos from Husky on how to do it, but found some user videos that seemed to have a easier method that appears to be safer. I found the initial setup and configuration for this hitch a huge pain. I purchased a new travel trailer from a dealer that was also a husky dealer. They did the install for me. It was not done correctly and I had huge sway problems. I followed the instructions provided, and had to make further adjustments. I am still not fully satisfied with the sway control. I think it is safe and working, but was hoping it would be better. I have found some issues to be aware of. The pins that hold the head of the sway bar into the hitch have a wire loop that holds the pin in place. I have had them come unhooked and almost lost my sway bar. They are kind of flimsy. I now install the pin so the wire catch goes to the toward the inside and check it all the time. I still have them come undone, but they seem to have less risk of coming out. I am monitoring, and will probably end up figuring out a different solution. There is also an issue with the cotter keys that secures the L shaped bracket for the end of the sway bars. I have sheared off 3 in a year, and have to carry extras. I find this occurs when going over dips in the road or uneven parking lots. Would I recommend this hitch, yes..... and....see above.... and.... it is technically challenging to use over some of the others I have used. 575204

Im glad that i received this opportunity. I am cery disappointed with the husky hitch that i purchased and their customer service. I noticed that after only using the hitch once after proper setup, i found the frame brackets that bars slide on now have wear grooves in them. I contacted husky and they had me complete a setup form as well as submit photos only to tell me this is normal wear which i feel it isnt. They also told me to apply grease to this area to limit the friction wear. If and when they wear completely through then i am to contact them for warranty which i feel is unsafe because if they wear through while im towing my trailerSo at this point i feel that 562872

I finally decided to buy a camper for the family. The camper salesmen recommended a weight distribution hitch w/ sway control. I have not pulled anything 30 ft long so I began to study up. That's when I found etrailer. I read reviews and decided on the Husky Trunnion 12000 lb unit. The website was easy to order thru and I selected the 12000 lb. unit. Problem is, I was sent the 600 - 800 lb trunnion arms. I called etrailer and talked to Janice A. I explained the situation to her and she confirmed that I had in fact ordered the right system.....she stated that etrailer sent the wrong unit. She agreed to send new trunnion arms overnight to me with return information for the return of the wrong arms to etrailer. The part she sent arrived as discussed and were correct...and easy replacement. Best of all, I didn't miss a weekend camping. Janice A. was great and is an asset to her company. I will have to credit etrailer as well for outstanding service. Happy Customer....Highly recommend etrailer. 420645

I've used this hitch for about a year now, and it is everything the description says it is. The instructions are very complete and lead you through all the steps for correct assembly. I discovered that the tension required to control the sway for my trailer was less than I imagined. But, that will vary based on your trailer weight. Hooking up is much easier and less problematic than I thought it would be, and goes very quickly after some repitition. The ONLY off-putting thing in the entire process is the required torque setting for the bolts for the trunion head. [specs] !!!!!!!!!! I took mine to my local mechanic and we managed to torque them with his impact wrench, as mine wouldn't reach the required torque. That is actually a minor thing, because once it's set, you won't be resetting it/redoing it unless something goes wrong. Just be aware of it! I can back up, tow more quietly than my chain type, and it just works!! 359273

I am very satisfied with the Husky weight distribution hitch I purchased. My trailer weighs over 8000 lbs empty and is 36 ft long. The Husky works great even when traveling on the highway in high winds. Much better than the bar and chain type. The fact that it doubles as a set control and backing up is no problem makes it the want to go. etrailer also had the best pricing. Thank you. 397888

The HT32218 weight distribution system works great and was easy to install. I installed it on a 2003 Chevy Silverado 1500 and I pull a 2017 trailer, length 31', tongue load 700 lbs. Also, I added the Timbren Suspension Enhancement hollow rubber springs which took the rear bounce away. Between the the two systems I have a good level ride, no bounce and very little sway (mostly from tractor trailers passing on the highway.) 479387

First off all hat's off to ETrailer for the great customer service! Ordered my Husky product and they matched an online price that I found and gave me a credit and the 10% of the difference. Shipped quickly and arrived just in time to get installed and use. Took a while to get it installed and adjusted properly, but once it was adjusted it worked great. I already have a few hundred miles on the hitch pulling my trailer and have to say I love it! I bought this to replace my old chain style WD hitch and this Husky product is awesome with the built in sway control. Very easy to use as it is a "set it and forget it" setup. My old chain style was always a pain to get adjusted correctly and it seemed to be different everytime. This Husky TS hitch hooks up the same everytime. Also very quiet and no problems backing up with it being hooked up. My last trip was pretty windy and the TS did a great job keeping the sway down. If you are having second thoughts on purchasing this product, I say go for it. You won't regret it! 292601

No sway on the hwy. No noise.One thing to avoid is sharp angles when backing up into tihgt park spots. Disconect the sway bars if you need to but make sure they dont get in your way:).The ball part is reasonable heavy so prepare to use some muscle and if you keep your hitch like I do ( in storage, not on the truck) it will stay beautifuly steeley-shiny like the day you unboxed it.Overall a great hitch. Does the job like it supposed to do. 368048

I love this weight distribution system! I have a F150 (stock rear springs/hitch) which is pulling a 7'x16' enclosed aluminum trailer, which probably weights close to 5,000-6,000 lbs depending on how much I load it. Without this system, the trailer was tongue heavy and the truck had a noticeable rearward lean, handled poorly, etc. With this system, the truck sits within 1/2" level (the system is incredibly easy to adjust to achieve proper leveling depending on weight/loading), and I just got back from driving 1000+ miles towing the trailer, and the driving was incredibly easy compared to without this system. Those miles included highway, poorly paved highway, dirt roads, dirt roads with bad spring ruts/pot holes, tight parking lots, windy conditions etc. This system performed in all of them. Passing semis or vice versa? No sway whatsoever. There were even some nasty bumps at highway speeds (70mph) which induced some slight trailer wobble, which this system corrected right away. This system also allowed for tight turns, both in drive and reverse. The thing is quiet too! Detaching the system is very easy as well when the trailer is not in use. The torsion bars easily disconnect from the trailer brackets via the tool provided, and once off, you only have to remove the pin from the hitch side to remove the torsion bar. That way you don't have to carry the weight of the full system all at once back to the garage. All in all, I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the market for a weight distribution / sway control system. 245991

Have had for about a year. Tow 10k Toy Hauler. Works very well, happy with build quality. There is some rust on pieces that rub together/Sway bars. So gonna touch that up with paint before this camping season. Some minor sway still when I have UTV loaded in rv/trailer, not sure if because of extra weight in rear end/behind trailer axles. 481393

Works w treat. Keeps my rig nice and level and keeps everything in line; no sway even when having had to make sudden directional changes. Can't offer any comparisons with similar products but would go with this setup again. Some 8,000 miles on towing and all is good. 725915

The product has been very reliable and trustworthy. It's very solid and built with quality in mind. Would definitely recommend this product. 691295

After installing this hitch I would not tow without it. Before installing my trailer would sway every time I crest a Hill or came out from behind trees. Now the cross wind seems to have no effect. Also the ride is much better greatly reduces any bounciness. 686884

- HT32218

Will review again after a few trips. Delivery was quick. I had to move my LP tanks forward 2”. Installation was ok with the correct tools. Price on the 32218 went down 37.00 in just a week from me buying it. Solid construction. At the same time I bought the Sherline hydraulic trailer wright scale. 669742

  • Does the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System Come With a 2-1/2 Inch Shank
    I do have a 2-1/2" shank that can be used with the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32218, the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank part # EQ90-02-4900 but the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System does not come with one. The most cost effective option you have is to use a sleeve, the Curt Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve part # C45405.

  • Can the Husky Center Line 1,200 Lb Spring Bars Be Swapped Out for the 800 Lb Spring Bars
    Yes, the 600-800 lb spring bars (Replacement Spring Bar for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32330) will work with the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32218 and they will be much better suited for the weight of your trailer. If you were to use the 800-1,200 lb spring bars you have now you would likely experience a very harsh ride which could then result in more wear on the vehicle/trailer. The great news is that the other set of spring bars...

  • Comparing Husky Centerline Weight Distribution System With The Reese Straightline WD System
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW # HT32218 system is a good system. It uses a 4 point, metal on metal friction to control sway as it occurs. It comes with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball. It uses no lift chains, so the system is very easy to use. The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW # RP66084 uses a dual cam system with hot rolled spring bars to keep...

  • Husky Weight Distribution System For Trailer With 765 Lb Empty Tongue Weight
    You do want to choose a weight distribution system based off of the loaded tongue weight of the trailer. The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control part # HT32218 is a great option for a weight distribution system on your trailer if your loaded tongue weight will fall between 800 and 1200 lbs. Since your dry tongue weight is 765 lbs, your loaded tongue weight will most likely fall into the correct range but you want to measure your tongue weight with a scale like part # 5780...

    Although we do have the replacement hardware that you need for your Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32218, the Replacement Hardware for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Head Assembly part # HT32340, you do not need to replace this each time you move the head up or down on the shank.

  • Upgrading Husky Centerline Weight Distribution for Tongue Weight over 800 lb
    If you are sure you are going to be over 800 lbs like you mentioned the correct Husky Centerline spring bars you'd need would be the part # HT32329 which have the tongue weight range of 800 to 1,200 lbs. You may have included it as your "cargo" figure but you do have to consider any weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle as tongue weight.

  • Can Bolts be Reused When Making Head and Hitch Ball Adjustments on Husky Weight Distribution System
    As long as they are in good condition you can certainly reuse the bolts for your Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System # HT32215 when adjusting the head and ball height. This is not a problem at all. Since you will be changing trailers, you will just want to make sure that your new total tongue weight (loaded tongue weight of trailer + added cargo weight behind rear axle of your F-150) still falls within the 400 to 600 pound tongue weight range on the system. If you find that...

  • How to Adjust Weight Distribution Spring Bar Tension
    Bar tension in a weight distribution hitch like the Husky Center Line # HT32218 can be adjusted either by the tilt of the hitch head (which is controlled by addition or removal of washers) or by the bracket height on the trailer frame. Installation and removal of spring bars requires using the trailer tongue jack to release tension. This is noted in the linked article in Step 5. I also linked a video for a different system but the process is the same.

  • Replacement Head and Hardware For Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System
    You will need a few items to replace the head for your Husky Centerline Weight Distribution system, part # HT32218. First, you will need the replacement head, part # HT32328. Since the ball platform and the hardware are sold separately I will also list those. For the ball mount you will need part # HT32336. For the mounting hardware you will need part # HT32340. The shank that comes with the # HT32218 system is part # HT31518. This 10-inch long shank has a 6-1/2 rise and 1-1/4 inch...

  • Is Husky Weight Distribution System Similar to Equalizer 4 Point Weight Distribution
    Only Equalizer advertises their weight distribution systems as 4 point, but the Husky WD System part # HT32218 is of the same design basically. It has bars that can slide back and for on the L-brackets and a head that allows the same style of pivoting so it would function very much like an Equalizer advertised as a 4 point system. Tongue weight is critical for picking out a WD system. And that figure does include the weight of cargo behind rear axle. You can either have one setup for...

  • Can the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System Be Used On a C-Channel Frame
    Yes, you can use the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System part # HT32218 on a c-channel frame. However, you would want to place a block of wood between the frame bracket and frame on the open side. So long as this is done you will not have any issues whatsoever.

  • Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation with 9 inches of Drop for 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    The weight distribution shank we offer that has the most drop that fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch is the Curt Shank part # C17132 which has a drop of 8 inches. Depending on if you calculated the drop you need with the trailer's tongue weight on the hitch or not this could work. If you came up with 9 inches of drop with the tow vehicle unloaded 8 inches of drop might be right when the weight of the trailer is on the rear suspension. Otherwise we have a 2 inch shank with 9 inches of drop as the...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Travel Trailer with GVWR of 5,000 Pounds
    When choosing a weight distribution system, the most important factor to consider is the total tongue weight of your setup. The total tongue weight will be the loaded tongue weight of your trailer (tongue weight when everything is loaded as if you were heading out on your trip) along with any added weight behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. You will want this total to fall somewhere around the middle of the chosen weight distribution system's weight capacity range. We can take...

  • What is the Correct Weight Distribution System to Use With a Empty Tongue Weight of 1270 Lbs
    If your travel trailer will have a unloaded tongue weight of 1270 lbs, then the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System, # HT32218 will be too small for your application. When choosing a weight distribution system it is best to have your total tongue weight (the loaded and ready tow tongue weight) fall in between the tongue weight range that the weight distribution system is rated. Total tongue weight will also include any cargo that you will have loaded in your vehicle that is located...

  • Differences between Husky Centerline HD and Centerline TS Weight Distribution Systems
    I checked with our Product Management staff about your question, because at this time we don't offer the Centerline HD systems and I'm not all that familiar with them. I found that the Centerline TS provides moderate sway control with trunnion bars that are torqued to specific tolerances to keep the spring bars in line. It is a complete system that includes spring bars. It has a more basic setup than the HD, it requires less to install, is more user friendly, and is purported to be lighter...

  • Husky Centerline TS Weight Distribution System for 2014 Ram 1500 Bighorn
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System # HT32218 is designed for 2-inch hitches like the one on your 2014 Ram 1500 and it will provide load leveling and sway control for a trailer set-up with a total effective tongue weight (TETW) of 800- to 1200-lbs. TETW is the sum of the fully-loaded trailer's actual measured TW plus the weight of any cargo in the truck bed that sits behind the rear axle, such as a loaded cooler or generator. The weight of such items will act just like trailer...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Sway with Husky Weight Distribution System When Used with 2018 Chevy 2500
    It sounds like you just need a new Weight Distribution (WD) shank for your Husky Center Line # HT32218. You want to make sure that you have the appropriate drop for your towing setup otherwise it throws the weight in your trailer off and you get a lot of sway like what you are experiencing. You need to adjust the WD system head so that the hitch ball platform is the same height as the bottom of your trailer coupler as you can see in the attached article. Once you have that height difference...

  • Can There Still Be Some Trailer Sway When Using a Weight Distribution/Sway Control System
    When a suitably-rated weight distribution/sway control system is properly installed in a towing setup like yours there will still be SOME effect from a vehicle like an 18-wheeler passing you in the opposite direction. No system can prevent this totally. And as driving speed increases the effects of wind/passing vehicles will only increase too. Slowing down is the easiest, cheapest and safest way to avoid this. I do realize that in parts of the USA the posted highway speed limit can often...

  • Will Adjusting Husky Weight Distribution Head Angle Down Put More Weight on Truck Front Axle
    Adding washers to angle the head down could actually increase the weight at the ball which means it is pushing down more at the back of the truck and could make the problem worse. It would also put less tension on the spring bars. What you might need is more tension on the spring bars so it is lifting more on the truck end. You may have to experiment with different head angles and spring bar tension to get it to where you want it but there is enough adjustment in the Center Line system...

  • Which Husky Centerline Weight Distribution System for 2020 Jayco 17RK
    The Husky Centerline system part # HT32218 could be used on your 2020 Jayco 17RK that you have as these kits are not trailer specific. It would be just a matter of picking out the correct weight rating for your trailer. Looks like your trailer's GVWR is right at 3,950 lbs so that would mean the tongue weight is most likely going to be between 400 and 600 lbs so the correct Centerline you'd need is the part # HT32215 as it has a tongue weight range of 400 to 600 lbs and comes with a...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Highly Effective Sway Control Capabilities
    A weight distribution system isn't a one size fits all proposition. W/D systems are available with spring bars of various capacities, you'll want to choose the system based on the fully loaded tongue weight of your trailer. To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. To that figure, add the weight of any gear stowed in the cargo area your Grand Cherokee behind the rear axle. I've linked to an...

  • Troubleshooting Husky Centerline Hitch with Too Much Tension on Trunnion Bars
    Your Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # HT32218 will allow you to adjust the tension in your bars by adjusting either the hitch head angle or the bracket height on the trailer frame. To disengage the bars, you can use the same spring bar lift tool used to install the bars. This will allow you to control the release of tension. I've attached some videos and have attached the installation details to further assist.

  • Shank with More Drop to Tow Trailer Level with Husky Center Line Weight Distribution System
    The Husky Center Line weight distribution system # HT32218 uses a shank with 3/4 inch diameter holes that are spaced 1-1/4 inches apart on center. You will be able to use a shank with the proper amount of drop even if it is from a different manufacturer. Fastway shank # FA92-02-4214 has a maximum drop of 4 inches compared to the 1-1/4 inch max drop of the Husky shank so it will get you nearly 3 inches lower.
