Pro Series Weight Distribution diagram

Create a 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, resulting in an even distribution of weight throughout. The result is a smooth, level ride, as well as the ability 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.


Unique Features of Pro Series Round-Bar Weight Distribution

Pro Series Weight Distribution adjustable head from top and side

To adjust your weight distribution head assembly to the correct angle, insert the included rivet and up to 8 washers into a 1/2-inch hole in the "U" on your head assembly. Use the smallest number of washers necessary to achieve the correct downward angle for the spring bars. Each washer lowers the chain ends of your spring bars by approximately 1-1/2 inches. Once the correct angle is reached, use the included bolts, serrated washers and nuts to lock the unit into place.


Pro Series Weight Distribution round spring bar locking devices

The round spring bars of this system slide up into the weight distribution head and are secured with built-in, spring-bar locking devices for quick, easy installation. With a tapered design and forged steel construction, these bars flex to ensure a smooth, controlled ride for both your tow vehicle and your trailer.


Friction Sway Control

Pro Series Weight Distribution friction sway control installation on trailer frame

Pro Series Weight Distribution friction sway control installation on hitch head

The integrated friction-style sway control of the Pro Series system reduces trailer sway caused by winds, winding roads and sudden maneuvers. As soon as your trailer begins to move out of line, the friction pads inside the unit touch one another and create resistance to help prevent further side-to-side movement. To install, simply bolt the sway-control ball plate to the A-frame of your trailer and attach the other end to the included ball, which mounts on the head of your weight distribution hitch - drilling required. The ball plate mounts to the side of the trailer frame so it will not interfere with gas tanks, toolboxes or generators.

Video Transcript for Pro Series Weight Distribution - WD With Sway Control - PS49901 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number PS49901. This is the Pro Series Weight Distribution System with Friction Sway Control. This unit is a great unit to have in place. It's going to evenly distribute the tongue weight to the axles of the towed vehicle and the trailer for stability and control. Basically it just creates a more level ride for both the tow vehicle and the trailer. The friction sway control is going to reduce sway caused by winds, curving roads and sudden maneuvers. It's going to feature an adjustable tension that's going to let you create the perfect degree of control and resistance for your application.

It also has the integrated handle that's going to allow you to engage and disengage this system. It installs rather easily. This portion here is going to go over that ball. This plate is going to get mounted onto the frame of your trailer and it's going to connect into this socket right here. All the hardware to get that attached is included. These pins right here are going to go into the grooves and it's going to hold the socket onto the ball at both locations. This can be easily removed, simply by disengaging those pins and removing the sockets from the ball.

Then it's going to allow you to remove it from the system. It's also going to feature the round forged steel spring bars. These are tapered for superior flexibility. These bars will flex appropriately over uneven terrain giving you a nice controlled, even ride. The tension right here with the bars can be adjusted. All you have to do is switch the links in the lift chains.

That's going to allow you to fine tune your system. It's also going to include this breaker bar. Because of the tension that's created once the chains are tight, sometimes they're hard to get the lift brackets up in place, so these would be down, you'd connect the chain and you may not be able to get that all the way back up so they include this bar that's going to allow you to push through the tension and get these holes lined back up. That way you can install your clip. That breaker bar is included. Another neat thing is it's going to include this rivet with a lot of spacer washers right here.

This is going to allow you to get the desired tilt of the head assembly that you need. There's going to be a location for this rivet to go in, in the head assembly. You can either add more washers or reduce the amount of washers depending on the level of tilt that you need for your particular application. This unit is going to be made from solid steel. It's got a nice powder coated finish over it so it's going to stand up well against rust and corrosion. The system is going to come with everything that you see here so you're going to get your head assembly, you're going to get the adjustable shank which is really neat to have, you can use it in the drop or rise position. You're going to get your pin and clip to hold it inside of your hitch, this is designed for 2" by 2" trailer hitches. You're going to get the lift brackets, the round bars, the lift chains, all the pin and clips that you need, the friction sway control with all the hardware and the 2-5/16" hitch ball. This unit is going to offer a tongue weight up to 550 pounds with a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds. It's going to offer a shank length back here on the adjustable shank of 12-1/2", provide a maximum rise of 6" from the top of the hitch receiver opening, with a maximum drop of 2". Again, you're going to get a 2-5/16" hitch ball that's going to have a shank length of 2-1/2" and a shank diameter of 1-1/4". Please keep in mind that this system cannot be used on trailers with surge brakes. The sway control must be removed when you're going in reverse. The lift brackets are also going to attach to the frame of the trailer. They've got the set screw there, that way you can get it all the way installed as needed. You want to make sure that these are going to be positioned about 24" from the center of the hitch ball, along the trailer frame. To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight and then add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle, combine those two measurements and then that's going to make up the tongue weight rating for a weight distribution system. It's also going to come with detailed instructions; this is going to walk you through how to get everything put together and how to get this installed on your particular application. That's going to do it for our review on part number PS49901. This is the Pro Series Weight Distribution System with Friction Sway Control. .

The weight-distributing hitch is well made and was delivered much more quickly than anticipated, which was great. While not cheap, the price was a good deal lower than the competition. The product is very heavy, and handling damaged the cardboard box in transit. Fortunately, it comes well packed, so nothing was lost from the box. I do wish the unit had not come with the ball mounted, as one of the things I have to do is find tools to swap the mounted ball for the smaller ball for my 16' Casita travel trailer. 66090

I had great experience from the beginning. Marcia helped me get the correct one. Was going to order to big and she explained the sizing on the tongue weight. Arrived in two days way before I thought it would get here. Excellent product. Put on the trailer within one hour and took the trailer out for a test run, worked better than expected. Have a 22foot travel trailer pulled with a Nissan truck, no sway, and was level. Great Experience would recommend to any one looking for trailer parts. Will use again. 163687

Having done extensive towing of all kinds of tongue pull trailers without one I was a bit skeptical about adding the weight distribution hitch to our new travel trailer. But I kept seeing the virtues of using a WDH on an online forum and bit the bullet after we purchased our new travel trailer last year. I would make this purchase again without hesitation. Installation was a piece of cake and took us about an hour start to finish from taking it out of the box to leveling the first time. My wife read the instructions and assisted while I did the majority of the assembly. At first we thought it might be difficult to hook-up every time we towed but now we have it down so it adds about 3-4 minutes to our hook-up/separation time. That minor addition of time to the hook-up/separation process is well worth the extra piece of mind we both get knowing the trailer is going to pull much more stable. We have spent the last year traveling the country covering 24,000+ miles in all kinds of conditions (wind, rain, bad roads, you name it) and will not tow without a WDH ever again. The difference we felt between the few times we towed before adding this hitch and after is unbelievable. Instead of the trailer being a separate vehicle doing its own thing behind us it feels like an extension of our tow vehicle. On several occasions we have encountered crosswinds that would have caused control problems (sway, rocking, bucking) without the hitch but it performed beautifully. I can feel the trailer "realigning" instantly with the truck when hit by even severe winds. On those bridges that cause severe bucking due to pavement joints the WDH suppresses the buck beautifully keeping the trailer under control. I used to hesitate when passing tractor-trailer rigs on the highway in windy conditions but this WDH makes it a piece of cake, there is no trailer jerk when we enter or break free of the wind wake. It also reduces the bounce in the trailer when on washboard highways. I could go on and on but will just say this. We don't leave without it!!! We tow a 2015 R-Pod 179 (3,400 GVW) with a 2014 Ram 1500 4X4. 242542

Hitch arrived within just a few days. It installed with some effort, but those efforts were towards getting the adjustments/alignments correct. I haven't towed with the hitch yet, but statically it levels my tv and tt to almost pre-hitched heights. I have a 2013 Toyota 4runner and a 2015 Flagstaff microlite 21fbrs. I can't wait to take it out on the road. Although I did not speak to anyone directly a e-trailers, e-mail correspondence was timely, appropriate and greatly appreciated. In case anyone is interested, I did contact Toyota about weight distribution on the 2013 -4 runner and they specifically said the factory hitch would accept weight distribution. Thanks and I will be looking at more of your products! 133435

Very good product and easy to install. My configuration allowed the lift brackets that came with the order to be used, so I didn't have to order the bracket kit. The installation videos on the e-trailer were excellent. Delivery was also prompt, only four days for me. My trailer only required a 2" ball rather than the 2 5/16" ball supplied. I had trouble finding a 2" ball locally with a 1 1/4" diameter shank. I ordered this from e-trailer and again delivery was prompt. I did have to buy some larger wrenches to work with the 2" nuts on the balls so keep that in mind if your a due-it-yourselfer. The manual was pretty good, but I got more out of the videos. I little more description on the initial setting of the friction sway control would have been helpful (i.e. is the factory setting midway? lowest? highest)? 267164

Shipping slow this time. Usually a lot faster with products. Hitch heavy duty for vehicle but maintained stability and worked flawlessly when towing. Small light Nissan SUV married with 3500lb utility trailer. Mfgr includes a ball but I required a 2 inch ball. Extremely hard to remove (overtightened from mfgr) and needed a local mechanic with better tools. Will not use as regular hitch because of weight. When having car and trailer with max weight, it is a necessity. Surprisingly easy to set up and change. Instructions were correct and easy to understand. Sway control helpful with desert winds, highway truck grooves, and highway speeds; just tighten a little more. 78010

I have used this system on a few trips now and it works very well. One trip was over 6 hours each way using back roads and hiways. It was easy to setup, install, and use.
