Expert Answers about Trailer Hitch Ball


  • How to Determine Clearance of Gen-Y Hitch 5th Wheel to Gooseneck on 2020 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • It is certainly possible for the Gen-Y Hitch Shock Absorbing 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Pin Box # GY56FR to work on your 2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty short bed, but there are likely going to be clearance issues as these are meant for long bed trucks. That said, there is a way to determine the clearance, though you will first need to add a gooseneck hitch and offset hitch ball, which are the following: - B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit # BWGNRK1116 -...

  • How Difficult Is It To Install A Hitch On A 2021 Mustang Mach-E
  • Installing either the Curt # C77ER or the Draw-Tite # DT92MR on your 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E does indeed require trimming of the bumper fascia due to the hidden nature of how they install. This can be a bit daunting as it is your brand new vehicle, but fret not for it is not too difficult to accomplish. You can do this a few ways, but slow and steady will make for cleaner and straighter lines. To start, measure twice, mark with painters tape, or something similar, and then verify your...

  • What Causes Curt Factory Ford Pop-In Hitch Ball To Get Stuck
  • The issue you are having with the gooseneck hitch ball getting stuck in the trailer hitch after sitting is pretty common, especially with the factory pop-in hitch balls that have the latch in the top like the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit part # C60692. The reason for this is because you can't get much leverage/force to remove it due to the latching mechanism. In regards to removal, the basics like tapping it with a hammer to free the rust/dirt, applying lubrication, and applying...

  • Comparing Curt and B and W Gooseneck Hitch Balls for 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 with OEM Rail Kit
  • For the OEM gooseneck hitch of your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 there are two options. The B and W part # BWGNXA2061 and the Curt # C60692. I strongly prefer the B and W mainly as it has a handle that makes grabbing the ball to install/remove it easier but also prevents you from having to grab the ball at all which is normally covered in black grease and dirt. It's just a cleaner and easier release mechanism so it's the best option. I attached a review video for this for you to check out...

  • Hitch Ball to Fit 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 HD
  • The 5" Offset Ball # 19308 is specifically designed for Hide-A-Goose gooseneck trailer hitches that have a pin to go through the shank. Currently the only gooseneck hitch ball that is compatible with your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 is the B&W # BWGNXA2061 which uses ball bearings to secure the hitch ball to your OEM puck system. In the event that you don't have the factory puck system on your Sierra 3500 you can install the B&W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1020 and use their 4" Offset Ball # BWGNXA4085....

  • Easiest to Use 10,000 lb Capacity Weight Distribution Hitch
  • You are right that some weight distribution hitches can be a somewhat difficult process to set up but there is one option that is much easier to use than the rest and is perfect for your trailer that has a loaded tongue weight of 900 lbs, and for that I highly recommend the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution with Sway Control # BLU66FR. The SwayPro - which has a 10,000 lb towing capacity and is designed for trailers with total tongue weights between 750 lbs and 1,000 lbs - has a lot...

  • Comparing Gooseneck Hitch Ball Kits for 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 with OEM Pucks
  • Difference in pricing between products can have a variety of factors like what our cost is for them, how popular they are, and competitor's pricing so there really isn't just one reason why pricing is different. With that being said, the Curt Kit # C60692 is pretty popular but I think they have pushed their marketing into the OEM sector so people have just heard their name more. I personally like the style of the B&W Kit # BWGNXA2061 better because the release handle doesn't sit...

Instead you will need the Curt Pop-In Ball for Factory Chevy/GM, Ford, and Nissan Underbed Gooseneck Hitches - 2-5/16" # C60629.

  • Correct Weight Distribution Hitch For Trailer With 400 lb to 500 lb Tongue Weight
  • We can get you set up with a weight distribution hitch with sway control, and in regards to ratings, your trailer's tongue weight will need to stay at or below the capacity of your Xterra's hitch (500 lbs). The weight distribution hitch is a bit different, because the best system is one in which your trailer's tongue weight falls somewhere in the middle of the weight distribution system's tongue weight capacity. So for example if your tongue weight is somewhere between 400 lbs and 500...

  • Is There A Safety Chain Kit That Will Fit Ford, Chevy, And Ram Factory Puck Systems?
  • The Curt Safety Chain Loops # C60691 will work with Chevy, Ford, GMC, and Nissan factory underbed gooseneck trailer hitches. Dodge/Ram does use a different style puck though, so you will need the Curt Safety Chain Loops for Ram factory underbed gooseneck trailer hitch # C60617 for that. However, if you are looking for an all inclusive kit with the ball, safety chain loops, carrying case, and a cover for the gooseneck hole when the ball isn't in use, you will want to look at the kits...

  • Which Provides More Cushioning from Ball Mount Convert-A-Ball Vs Curt Rebellion XD
  • The Convert a Ball ball mounts like the # AMSC4HD and the Curt Rebellion XD # part # C45949-2516 offer cushioning in a similar way (front to back cushioning) but the Curt Rebellion is going to offer superior cushioning to the Convert a Ball. The reason I say this is because most of the time your ball mount would not be free to move enough for the cushioning to be effective since the tongue weight of the trailer on the ball mount prevents movement where it would be needed. With the Rebellion...

  • What Size Socket Is Required To Install Nut On 2-5/16" Hitch Ball?
  • It sounds like you are looking for the socket required to install the nut on a 2-5/16" hitch ball like the Curt # C40030 you were looking at. You will need a 1-7/8" socket like the 1-7/8" 12pt Thin Walled Socket - 3/4" Drive - Chromium-Vanadium Steel # ALL643216. You will also need a torque wrench that has a high enough rating for the torque your specific hitch ball required. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Ball Mount for European Bike Rack
  • I have a solution but the Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # WS54FR will not work with this because most European Bike Racks require a 50mm ball to attach to. The two included balls with Weigh Safe ball mount are not the correct size. You will need a 50mm Hitch Ball # # EH53C-C and a ball mount with a 1" mounting hole like the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # 2923. This will allow you to mount your euro-style Thule VeloSpace XT3 Bike Rack to your Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76018...

If you would like to switch out your ball mount you can use the RockerBall with a ball mount with a 1" diameter I have attached a couple of ball mounts below that will work with the Rockerball since I am not sure how much rise/drop you need in a ball mount.

Since you already have 2" draw bars/ball mounts you can use the 7,500lb Curt RockerBall # C40047. This will fit your 2-1/2" wide mounts. This will work with your trailer even though it is only 800lbs. Do not be overly concerned with the weight ratings as these are maximum weight ratings and the reason the other RockerBall is so low at 3,500lbs is the...

If using a gooseneck trailer and if you have the factory in bed prep/puck system there are different gooseneck balls available with different heights. The Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit # C60618 has a ball height of 4" from the top of the ball to the flange that sits on the in bed hitch. The B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2062...

  • Are Interchangeable Trailer Ball Kits from Convert-A-Ball Safe?

This is without a doubt the type of interchangeable ball I'd recommend. The side pin arrangement that Convert-A-Ball uses works great, and the pin actually features an o-ring on it to keep moisture and debris out.

Without knowing the rise or drop you need, or the weight capacity, I can only offer a couple of general recommendations for ball mounts with long shafts. Since you have a trailer that utilizes a 2-5/16" hitch ball I assume it is on the heavier side so the best options are: - 13-1/4" Long Shaft: Brophy Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 3/4" Rise, 2" Drop - 10,000 lb Capacity # BM20 and 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40007 -...

You will simply need a open end wrench large enough to fit that. Vise Grips will likely be too difficult to hold. We have also used a bench vice as you see in the attached video. Some will choose to use a pipe wrench which works but is likely to mess up the finish on the ball more than the other options. Then place the...

  • For the B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch in your 2019 Ford F-350, you'd want to use the # BWGNXA4085. The difference between this offset ball and the one for the Tundra and the Ram 1500 is the depth of the gooseneck receiver where the ball sits. If you used either the BWGNXA4685 or the BWGNXA4585 the receiver won't be deep enough for the ball to secure into the hitch.

Though both the Curt and B&W are rated up to 30,000 pounds and will fit your truck perfectly, the B&W is American made and I find it easier to use. The larger locking and unlocking handle moves up and down quickly and easier, even in cold weather and gloved hands. It is a little more expensive, but I think it's worth it.

  • Although the 3" Hitch Ball for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNXA2025 is for heavy duty towing applications (due to the 40K weight capacity) the correct gooseneck hitch ball really boils down to what size coupler you have. If your gooseneck coupler is designed for a 2-5/16" hitch ball then you want to use the B&W hitch ball that came with your gooseneck hitch. If your gooseneck coupler is designed for a 3" hitch ball then you definitely need to use this over the 2-5/16" option.

  • Offset Gooseneck Ball for OEM Gooseneck Hitch on 2018 Ram 3500
  • If your Ram has the in-bed OEM goosneck hitch, there isn't an offset ball like # BWGNXA4085 available. The OEM hitch uses a ball with a round shank. If an offset ball were used, you could have two pivot points between the truck and the trailer, the point where the ball meets the coupler and the point where the ball meets the hitch. This would lead to an unsafe situation. I'd recommend going with an offset coupler like the # BWTEXA4200 from B&W which provides 10 inches of offset. The...
