Expert Answers about Fastway

  • How are Hitch Balls Secured to Mount on Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mount
  • I reached out to the manufacturer who said the hitch balls on the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable Ball Mounts are a solid piece that has a bolt running through it inside the mount. What this means is that there is zero chance of it coming apart while you are towing your trailer. Simply abide by the capacities of the hitch and it is extremely safe. There are a number of Flash Solid Steel Ball Mounts, each of which comes with a 2" and 2-51/6" hitch balls and the correct one for your needs...

  • Fastway Flash Heavy Duty Adjustable Ball Mount Weight and Pin Sizes
  • The Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2.5" Hitch - 10" Drop, 11" Rise - 20K # FA49-00-5925 weighs 42 lbs when shipped, so it will be slightly less when the packaging is removed. Some ball mounts will use the same 5/8 inch hitch pin for the ball mount, but some manufacturers want to ensure that no product that isn't intended to work with the shank is used for safety. Because of this, the Fastway ball mount has a 3/4 inch pin at the ball mount platform and the 5/8 inch pin...

  • Comparison of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Systems for Trailer with 800 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • Both the # FA94-00-1061 and the # FA92-00-1000 weight distribution systems are rated for 1,000 pounds of tongue weight which is a good choice for your trailer that has 800 pounds of tongue weight. The difference between the two is that the # FA92-00-1000 uses trunion spring bars and # FA94-00-1061 uses round spring bars. There isn't much advantage either way except trunion bars connect to the head by sliding directly into it and round bars come in from the bottom. The benefit is that...

  • Coupler Locks That can be Keyed Alike
  • We have coupler locks that can be keyed alike which are very similar to the MasterLock # ML389DAT, though unfortunately it cannot be keyed alike. The Fastway Universal Trailer Coupler Lock # DT25013KA can though, and like the MasterLock it works with 1-7/8", 2" and 2-5/16" couplers, and A-frame, straight channel, round tongue, flat plate and surge-type couplers. This coupler lock has been rated impressively high by a pretty large sample size of customers, with 311 reviewers leaving an...

  • Keyed Alike Locking Pin For Ball Adjustment And Hitch Pin On Fastway Ball Mount
  • The Fastway Flash E Series Adjustable, Aluminum Ball Mount - 2 Chrome Balls - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 10K, # FA42-00-2600 you said you have is a fit for 2 inch hitch receivers not 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers. The Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set for Flash E Series Ball Mounts, # FA86-00-3660, is a fit for this hitch and its compatible 2 inch receiver opening measured inside to inside. I'm guessing that you measured the receiver from outside vs. the inside opening and this...

  • Shank with More Drop for a Fastway Weight Distribution System and 2014 Ford F-150
  • Yes there are alternate weight distribution shanks that offer more rise or drop than the one that came with your Fastway system # FA92-00-0800. Shank number # FA92-02-4214 offers up to 4 inches of drop but it is measured differently than how you have measured. Rise or drop needed in a ball mount or shank is measured as follows: Park the truck and trailer on level ground and disconnect the truck from the trailer. Then measure from the ground up to the top of the hitch receiver opening...

  • Will Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock be Safe for 18,000 lb Rated Hitch?
  • The Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-3685 does not have a particular weight capacity. It has been designed for use with Fastway Flash E Series ball mounts like # FA42-00-2825. The lock set will fit 2-1/2" receivers and has a 5/8" pin diameter. I have added a video review of this product for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Drop Shank For Fastway E2 Weight Distribution System For 2-3 Inches Additional Drop
  • For your extra drop needed with your Fastway E2 weight distribution system, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 9-1/2" Rise, 4" Drop - 1,200 lbs TW # FA92-02-4214 this will give you a little under 2-1/2 inches of additional drop from your standard shank. If you need more, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank - 12" Long - 12-1/2" Rise 6-1/2" Drop - 1.2K TW # FA92-02-4315 which will give you the additional drop you need.

  • FastWay e2 Weight Distribution System Recommendation for R-Pod Camper with 300 lbs Tongue Weight
  • For your tongue weight of 300 lbs the FastWay E2 Weight Distribution System part # FA92-00-0450 that you referenced would be a great option that would be rated perfectly for it. For a hitch ball you then would want the part # 40038.

  • Comparing Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount and Curt Channel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
  • The weight of the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5625 that you referenced is 37 lbs, and the weight of the Curt # C45902 is 36 lbs. So in that regard they are essentially the same. They really are quite a bit alike in most ways. Same capacity at 20,000 lbs, both fit 2-1/2 inch hitches, both can do same amount of drop at 6 inches, both are highly reviewed by our customers, and both have very similar prices. I'd say the edge goes to the Curt though since it has...

  • Comparing Fastway e2 Round and Trunnion and Equal-i-zer Trunnion Weight Distribution Systems
  • Between round bar systems like # FA94-00-0600 and trunnion systems like # FA92-00-0600, I recommend going with a trunnion system because it will provide you better ground clearance than the round bar system. The trunnion bars come straight out from the hitch head, while the round bars come down from the head before moving out. For the Fastway and Equalizer systems, the manufacturer has already factored the hitch weight into the calculation. With these systems, you will only need to...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 23 Foot Travel Trailer w/ 5400lb GVWR
  • In addition to all the items on the trailer that will increase its dry tongue weight, you'll also need to add the weight of anything you carry in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle. The right way to do this is to load up the trailer as you would typically have it, and take it to a truck scale or use the # 5780 Sherline Tongue Weight Scale. Ideally, the TTW of your trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the weight distribution system...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution For Trailer With Total Tongue Weight Between 350 and 600 lbs
  • A weight distribution system that is rated too high for your total tongue weight of your loaded trailer and cargo behind the rear axle, can be an issue. You won't cause damage to your truck or trailer, but it can cause a rigid ride and in the worst cases can even cause the trailer to bounce which obviously means the traction isn't where it needs to be for proper control. Based on the info you gave, I recommend the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion -...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System Trunnion Bar Replacements For Increased Capacity
  • You can upgrade your Fastway E2 # FA92-00-0600 with Trunnion bars with up to a 600 lb total tongue weight capacity to a larger capacity rating by changing out your trunnion bars. Remember that weight distribution systems will be based on total tongue weight which includes the tongue weight of your loaded trailer (usually 10-15% of the total weight) as well as any cargo behind the rear axle of the towing vehicle. So if you have a 6000 lb trailer with a 15% tongue weight you'd already be...

  • How Do I Know What Drop Is Needed For My Lifted Ford F-250 With Bigger Tires?
  • The Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # FA94-00-1061, has a shank that will drop 1-5/8 inches from top of hitch receiver opening, so if you measure from the ground to the top of that inside receiver opening and then subtract the height to keep your trailer level, you will know what drop is needed from your weight distribution system shank. For a Fasway system, I recommend the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 12" Long - 10" Rise,...

  • Troubleshooting E2 Weight Distribution Hitch Sway Issues
  • It sounds like the Fastway e2 # FA94-00-0800 or # FA92-00-0800 is the correct system for your 1/2 full trailer but not for your loaded trailer. You want a system rated for total tongue weight which includes the tongue weight of your trailer and any cargo weight behind the rear axle of your F-150. That total tongue weight will ideally be in the middle of the range of your weight distribution system, so your Fastway e2 is not the correct system for your needs. For a 1000 lb e2 upgrade...

  • When to Upgrade the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • When choosing the best weight distribution system for your trailer you will want your total tongue weight (TTW) which is composed of the loaded ready to tow weight of the trailer by any cargo stored behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle to fall in the middle of the weight distribution system's capacity. This will allow for the most effective distribution of tongue weight and control of trailer sway. With a total tongue weight (TTW) of 992 lbs not including the water tank you plan to...

  • Bike Rack For Use With Trailer on Weight Distribution Hitch
  • A dual hitch adapter won't work for you because even if there was an adapter rated for the amount you needed, an adapter will slice your hitch capacity by 50 percent. Your best option, if you do not want to haul bikes behind your trailer, is the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756. This rack fits around jacks with up to 2-1/4" outer tube diameter and 22-1/2" clearance; it has an 80 lb weight capacity and holds your bikes by the wheels. Apart from this your best bet is...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System With Sway Control For 21-Ft Trail Lite Camper
  • The best way to determine what system will work for you is to know what your total tongue weight is. The total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will then want to find a system where your total tongue weight falls near the middle of the tongue weight range for the system. Getting a system that is too small will be useless, but getting a system that is too big...

  • Will Rock Tamers Heavy-Duty Adjustable Mud Flaps ERT00110 Fit Fastway Ball Mount FA42-00-2825
  • The Rock Tamers Heavy-Duty Adjustable Mud Flap System for 2-1/2-Inch Hitches # ERT00110 requires at least 1-inch of available space on the ball mount shank. This 1-inch of clearance between the back of the ball mount face and the trailer hitch receiver opening is needed for the mounting collar which is secured with the two included bolts. On the Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA42-00-2825 the available space on the shank from the center of the hitch pin hole is 3-inches....

  • Pole Tongue Adapter for Boat Trailer to Allow Use of Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System
  • Boat trailers that have a straight pole tongue (rather than an a-frame) can be used with WD systems by adding a pole tongue adapter that provides the necessary mounting points for the spring bar brackets. Equal-I-zer offers one made specifically for their systems, part # EQ95-01-5950. This will bolt onto trailer tongues up to 5-inches wide and up to 5-1/2-inches tall. You can use this so long as your trailer does NOT have a folding/hinged tongue.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Pole Tongue Trailer that Weighs 5,400 lbs
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. A system like this can be used with...

  • 2-1/2 Inch Shank for Fastway Weight Distribution on a Ford F-250 with 2-1/2 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • Fastway is made by Equal-I-zer so I recommend one of the Equal-I-zer 2-1/2 inch shanks: Shank # EQ90-02-4900 has a 10 inch rise or 6 inch drop Shank # EQ90-02-4800 has an 8 inch rise or 4 inch drop Shank # EQ90-02-4700 has a 7 inch rise or 3 inch drop I have linked a video review on one. The others will have the same features with the difference being the amount of rise and drop each offers.

  • What Size Hitch Receiver Does Flash Adjustable Ball Mount Fit
  • The shank of the Flash Solid Steel HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5925 will fit directly into 2-1/2 inch hitch receivers; it simply slides into the hitch and you can lock it into your 2-1/2 inch hitch with Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set # FA86-00-4225; this will also keep the hitch ball mount secure to the shank. There is a Flash ball mount for a 2 inch hitch receiver if that is what your vehicle has, the Flash Solid Steel Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # FA49-00-5900 which can...

  • 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...

  • What is Difference Between 800 and 1,000 lb Tongue Weight Fastway Weight Distribution Systems
  • The difference between the 800 lb tongue weight E2 Fastway Weight Distribution System part # FA94-00-0800 and the 1,000 lb tongue weight version part # FA94-00-1061 is the amount of spring bar tension either is rated for. The 1,000 lb kit has stiffer spring bars so that it can handle higher tongue weight capacities and the 800 lb kit has spring bars that aren't quite as stiff.

  • Troubleshooting Sway Control Issue with Fastway e2 System
  • The Fastway e2 system you have should not need any additional sway control and won't work with any additional bars. The biggest issue when you experience sway with a system like the # FA92-00-1000 is either an underrated system or a poorly adjusted system. An underrated system doesn't account for the total tongue weight which includes the loaded trailer tongue weight as well as any additional cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle.

  • The Fastway Trailer Hitch Lock and Adjustment Pin Lock Set for Flash E Series HD Ball Mounts # FA86-00-3685 does not allow a 3rd pin keyed alike although the 2 in the kit come keyed alike. If you want 3 pins 5/8 inch diameter, then the DeadBolt Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RH5-XL is the only option, but you can get as many as you like. This will work with the Fastway Trailer Hitches but won't have separate lengths like the kit.
