  • How is Rise Defined with a Ball Mount
  • In regards to ball mounts such as the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5900, rise is the distance from the top of the shank to the top of the ball mount platform when oriented for rise (please see accompanying photos). The Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount has a maximum rise of 11 inches, as you said, and maximum drop of 10 inches. I highly recommend using the Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set for 2" Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mounts # FA86-00-4200...

  • Should Receiver Tension Pin be Engaged with Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount in Rise Position
  • According to the instruction manual of the Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTSTBM6400-2S, "If the drop bar is in the UP or RISE position DO NOT engage the receiver tension pin" so you would only use the actual tension pin if it is in the drop position.

  • The Curt ball mount part # C45021 that you mentioned would have the capacity needed for your camper that weighs 1,395 lbs as it's rated for up to 2,000 lbs but you'll want to make sure this ball mount will provide you with the correct rise/drop that your trailer needs. This ball mount provides 4 inches of rise. I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will...

  • How to Pick Out Correct Ball Mount Rise/Drop for 2017 GMC Canyon Duramax ATX
  • I attached an FAQ that details how to pick out the correct ball mount rise/drop. Picking out the correct ball mount will allow your trailer to sit as level as possible. Basically you will first measure the height from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on the hitch while on level ground. Next, you will measure the coupler height from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when the trailer is on level ground. Since I do not know what either of those dimensions are on...

  • Tongue Weight Capacity for B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount part # BWTS30048B
  • The tongue weight (TW) capacity of the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount part # BWTS30048B will be 10% of the gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity for the respective hitch ball. So when you use the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball you'd have a TW capacity of 2,100 lb, when using the 2 inch ball 750 lbs, and when using 1-7/8 inch ball 350 lbs.

  • B&W Tow and Stow Pintle Hook Adjustable Ball Mount Hitch Ball Installation
  • The B&W Tow & Stow Pintle Hook with 2-5/16" Ball - 2" Hitches - 10,000 lbs/16,000 lbs # BWTS10056 uses a 1-13/16 inch socket and needs to be torqued to 450 ft lbs according to the manufacturer. The good news is the hitch ball comes assembled and already torqued to that specification.

  • Is the 2-5/16 Hitch Ball Already Torqued on the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount
  • Yes, the Curt Heavy Duty Forged Ball Mount # C45332 comes from Curt with the 2-5/16" hitch ball already torqued to specs. As the customer stated in their review, it must have slipped through their quality control. When we receive them and ship them out they remain in a plastic bag (which we do put in a box) so if it were loose we wouldn't know.

  • Anti Rattle Device Recommendation for Use with B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount
  • The rubber silencer part # BWTS35020 that you mentioned does not come with the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10033B and it does do a great job reducing the noise. Some people actually will use two of these to really take out the rattle. I still prefer an anti-rattle setup like the part # 63232 which tightens the ball mount shank to the hitch tube and really takes out the movement. It also doubles as a hitch lock as well.

  • Locating Correct Ball Mount to Connect with Trailer on Mazda CX-5 with Low Ground Clearance
  • I do have a solution for you, however there is definitely not enough ground clearance at the hitch connection between your Mazda CX-5 and 6x12 utility trailer. Any slight incline or bump in the road is going to cause issues with your current setup. To add clearance while also ensuring that the trailer itself is level when connected (it's a little hard to tell in the picture but it does appear that the tongue/trailer is nose low), you will need a ball mount with a larger rise such as...

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount for 2017 Ram 5500
  • To answer your question about the optimal ride tongue weight, our ranges are referring to use with the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball while the Gen-Y website does not differentiate, hence the slight difference in ranges. Since you mentioned that you can't see yourself ever having a bumper pull trailer exceeding 16,000 lbs, and you said you will be able to ensure a tongue weight of around 1,400 lb to 1,500 lbs I recommend going with the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount - 16K # 325-GH-1125 because...

  • How to Measure Loaded Trailer Tongue Weight
  • There is no way to use the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount with Scale # WS4-2 along with a weight distribution (WD) system but you can use WD and measure your trailer tongue weight (TW) easily enough using the stand-alone Sherline Scale # 5780. The Sherline scale is compact and easy to use and it reads up to 2000-lbs of loaded trailer TW.

  • What Does the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1325 Weigh
  • Actually the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1325 that you referenced weighs 124 lbs. This ball mount weighs so much because it has a very high weight capacity at 21,000 lbs, is adjustable and is cushioned. To pull all of that off Gen-Y had to make it pretty heavy. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Dual Hitch Adapter Recommendation to Tow Small Trailer and Carry Spare Wheel Carrier 6715
  • The best solution we have would be the Curt dual hitch adapter part # D210 which has a hitch opening on top that you can use for the Draw Tite hitch carrier part # 6715 and a ball mount platform on the bottom that you could use for towing your trailer. As long as you are within the capacities of the adapter you'd be fine. The ball mount has a trailer towing capacity of 7,500 lbs and the hitch opening has a capacity of 500 lbs tongue weight.

  • Which is Better for Use with Aluminum Trailer Weight Distribution or Weigh Safe Ball Mount
  • A weight distribution system is best choice over a Weigh Safe ball mount, but in your situation you may not be able to use a WD system. Most aluminum frame trailers can't have a WD system used with them so you'll have to first check with the manufacturer to find that info out for sure. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale # WS6-2 though can be used with an aluminum trailer. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of...

  • Recommended 2 Inch Hitch Ball with 10,000 lb Capacity for Curt Ball Mount
  • There is a 2 inch hitch ball rated for 10,000 lbs that is compatible with the Curt Ball Mount # C45338. I recommend the 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 because it is rated for 10,000 lbs and has a shank that measures 1-1/4" diameter x 2-5/8 long so there will be minimal excess once the nut is tightened. I have added a link to a video review of this hitch ball for you to check out as well.

I recommend using the Weigh Safe Hitch Receiver Lock for 2", 2-1/2", and 3" Hitches - 3-1/2" Span # WS05 which is that 5/8 inch pin designed to secure this ball mount. The B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch - 7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise - 21K - Black # BWTS30049B also has the 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin hole, so I recommend using that same lock. The Reese Super...

  • Best B&W Tow & Stow for a 2018 Ford F-350
  • In order to find out how much of a drop you need to look for in a ball mount, you will need to measure from the ground to the top of the inside edge on your trailer hitch and then from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler on your trailer while level. If you subtract the trailer height measurement from the hitch that will give you the amount of drop you need to look for in a ball mount. I recommend doing this for both trailers. Please note that the B&W Tow & Stow 3-Ball Mount...
