Expert Answers about Action Accessories

  • How Much Drop and Ball Sizes for the Husky Liners Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # HL17205
  • The Husky Liners Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # HL17205 that you referenced can do up to a 10 inch drop and is designed to fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch. There is a 2 inch ball and a 2-5/16 inch ball that comes on either side of the ball mount platform. The price is available at the product link below. A locking hitch pin would be a great option like the part # RH5-XL. It's not super pretty but it does have a nice polished finish that would look great. I attached a review video for this for...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 13 inch Drop
  • Sounds like you may be looking for a 13 inch drop ball mount. The closest we have is the Husky Liners ball mount part # HL17256 which can 12 inches of drop and is for a 2 inch hitch or the 2-1/2 inch hitch version part # HL17253. For a 2-5/16 inch ball you would want the part # 19286 or for a 2 inch ball part # A-90. For an adjustable ball mount that can do 13 we have the # HL17206 .

  • Recommended Hitch Lock to Secure Ball Mount of Husky Liners Adjustable 2-Ball Mount HL17200
  • My contact at Husky Liners advised that on their 2-inch adjustable ball mount # HL17200 the ball mount portion can be locked to the shank by using a 5/8-inch diameter hitch lock. I went to our warehouse and measured both the hole diameter - confirmed at 5/8-inches - and the width of the ball platform, which is 3-5/8-inches. Extra Long Hitch Lock # RH5-XL will be just long enough for this application. A lock with a 3-1/2-inch center span will not work. Since the shank of this ball mount...

The Husky Liners Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for 2-1/2" Hitches - 8" Drop - 17K - Black # HL17203 has a measurement from the top of the shank to the bottom of the ball on the lowest setting of 12-1/2 inches.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Recommendation for 2015 Ram 2500 with Husky Liners Adjustable Ball Mount
  • What you would need is an anti-rattle device like the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # SHP2082 which will hold the shank of the ball mount to the opening of the hitch and will stop the movement which would then prevent the squeaking.

  • Availability of Sway Control Bracket for Husky 2 inch Ball Mount # HL17250
  • To use the Husky Liners Ball Mount for 2 Inch Hitches # HL17250 with a friction sway control kit like the Pro Series # 83660, I recommend using the Reese Sway-Control Bracket # RP26003. This bracket is designed for Class III or Class IV, 2 inch ball mounts and will provide an attachment point for friction-style sway control units. Since the ball hole diameter on the Husky Ball Mount is 1-1/4 inches, you will also need to use the Curt Reducer Bushing # C21201 to reduce the hitch ball...

  • You are correct this ball mount from Husky Liners # HL17206 has a 14 inch drop. The unit's going to provide a maximum drop of 14 inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of the hitch to the top of the ball platform at the lowest setting. The height of the ball when all the way up will be even with the hitch pin hole so there will be no drop. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball is 9-3/4 inches. This ball mount...

This comes with the adjustability in 1 inch increments to give you the driveway clearance you need and the ability to re-adjust and...

  • How to Determine the Amount of Drop Needed When Purchasing a Ball Mount
  • To determine the amount of drop you need in a ball mount you need to have your trailer and tow vehicle on level ground and measure from the ground to the bottom of your coupler, and from the ground to the inside of the top of your hitch receiver. I've attached a couple of pictures to help show this. Since you measured from the bottom of each you're likely going to need more than 10 inches drop. You'll likely need around 12 inches or so. A better option may be going with an adjustable...

  • I Need A Ball Mount For My Husky Weight Distribution Shank
  • I have a solution for you, but we don't have any traditional hitch ball mounts to fit your current shank for weight distribution. We do not carry any hitch balls that are designed to fit or connect to those shanks. You can always use the weight distribution head of your system without the bars installed as an adjustable ball mount. If you need a new head for your system, you can use this replacement # HT31516. However, I can help you with an adjustable ball mount for your 2 inch hitch...

  • Pin Length of Action Accessories Ball Mount
  • You are correct that the 5/8" pin hole diameter in the Action Accessories Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # HL17202 is for the locking pin. As for the length, the ball mount fits inside the receiver, so as long as your 5/8" diameter locking pin was designed to be used in 2" x 2" hitches - like receiver lock # 5201 - it will be fine to use with this ball mount.
