Expert Answers about Gen-Y Hitch

  • Is Stabilizer Bar Kit # 325-GH-0100 Needed When Using the Gen-Y Adjustable Receiver # 325-GH-316
  • To address your initial question, yes, if you are using the Gen-Y Adjustable Receiver # 325-GH-316, that has a 12-1/2" rise/drop, then you will need to use the Gen-Y Adjustable Stabilizer Bar Kit # 325-GH-0100. The reason being that the adapter hangs down so low that in order to use the lowest receiver normally and keep the weight capacity of 10,000 lbs requires some extra stability. You will want to ensure that 12" of drop is exactly what you are needing by measuring from level...

  • Gen-Y Weight Distribution System for Different Tongue Weights and Compatibility with Torsion Hitch?
  • For your Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1024 the Weight Distribution System for Gen-Y Ball Mounts with 2" Receivers has been discontinued and will fit if you have it but is rated for 1,000 to 1,400 lbs total tongue weight. That total tongue weight is the loaded tongue weight of your trailer along with any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. The issue with this particular pairing is the limitation of your 10K receiver as you stated. The solution...

  • Anti-Rattle Sleeve for a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch using a 2 Inch Reducer
  • It sounds to me like you looking for an anti-rattle sleeve that will work with the 2-1/2" to 2" reducer sleeve you have on your Class V 2-1/2" trailer hitch receiver. For this you will need two sleeve's, one for the 2-1/2" opening using part # 325-GH-063 and one for the 2" opening using part # 325-GH-033. The above anti-rattle sleeve will do a great job of reducing rattle and hitch movement. Each adapter has two hex head set screws which will both tighten the device to the ball mount...

  • Recommended Ball Mount with Large Drop for Lifted Ram 2500
  • We do have a nice selection of adjustable ball mounts that might work to tow your trailer level with your 2009 Ram that features an 8 inch lift. I first recommend taking a few measurements to see exactly what kind of drop you are needing on the ball mount. Starting with the truck parked on level ground, measure from the ground to the top of the hitch receiver. Then on your trailer, take a measurement from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. The difference in these two measurements...

  • What is Drop on Gen-Y Torsion WD Shank # 325-GH-1302 with Round Bar System
  • I spoke with my contact at Gen-Y regarding the Torsion Weight Distribution Shank # 325-GH-1302 referenced in your question. The 7 Inch Drop (or Rise) on this unit is measured when using the Gen-Y Weight Distribution Systems like # 325-GH-602. These are round bar systems, so the 7 inch drop is accurate when using a round bar weight distribution system.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 13 Inch Drop on a 2017 Ram
  • If you are measuring from the inside top of the receiver to the bottom of your coupler then you have a 13 inch drop.

  • Hitch Extender Needed to Tow 9,700 lbs with a 2007 Dodge Ram 3500
  • Since none of our extenders are a viable option (either too short or not rated high enough for weight), your best option would be to use a ball mount with a long shank. Part # 325-GH-064 is rated for 21,000 lbs, fits a 2-1/2" hitch receiver, and extends out 12". If this can accommodate your truck camper then this is what I recommend using. If that doesn't work then you will want to uninstall your current Titan hitch and swap it out with the TorkLift Trailer Hitch # TLD1101. This will...

  • 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...

  • Can Weight Distribution Hitch Be Used in Gen-Y Stacked Torsion Receiver 325-GH-1325
  • Yes, you can use a weight distribution hitch system in one of the Gen-Y Stacked Torsion Receivers like # 325-GH-1325. The Gen-Y receivers are extraordinarily solid and have a very high capacity - this one is rated for 21,000-lbs. This particular model's rubber torsion springs will perform best when the unit is loaded with tongue weight in the range of 1,600 - 2,400-lbs. Below that range the springs will not be loaded enough to deliver their maximum shock reduction. All Gen-Y 2-1/2-inch...

  • Locking Hitch Pin Needed for a Gen-Y Hitch Being Used with a 2017 Toyota Tundra
  • You most likely have a Gen-Y hitch that is compatible with a 2" receiver like part # 325-GH-516. This means that you would need to use the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-096 which is comparable to the locking hitch pin # WS05. If you happen to be using a Gen-Y hitch that fits a 2-1/2" receiver, like part # 325-GH-624, then the Gen-Y Hitch Pin # 325-GH-099 that comes with it is comparable to the locking hitch pin # BD580412.

  • Recommended Gen-Y Torsion Hitch For 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • Yes, the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers # 325-GH-1125 is great for your needs, since your trailer and boat have a combined weight fully loaded of about 10k pounds. This product has a drop of 7-1/2" and rise of 7-1/2" which appears to be in line with your needs. The Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches # RH5-XL is a great addition to # 325-GH-1125.

  • Does Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp Work With 2 Inch Trailer Hitch on Ford F-150
  • The Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp for 2" Hitch Receivers # 325-GH-033 is actually designed to fit over the shank of a ball mount or accessory that fits into a 2 inch trailer hitch like the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # E98871 that fits certain model year Ford F-150's and F-150 Raptors. So the short answer is yes, the clamp will absolutely work with the hitch but it does not go around the lip, it will actually go into the receiver and then you'll tighten it.

The hole in the 2-ball assembly is 3/4-inch diameter to accept 1-7/8-inch hitch ball # 325-GH-090.

  • Height Recommendation for 72 Inch Gen-Y Aluminum Ramps
  • I reached out to my contact at Gen-Y Hitch and the Aluminum Ramps # 325-GH-R72 have an optimal angle for 12-20 inches height based on the angle on the bottom, but he said they can handle whatever angle your want at the full 6,000 lb capacity. They are rated for the ramps to take the full 6K as flat plank style bridge, so they can handle whatever angle you feel safe loading with them.

  • Does Gen-Y Gooseneck Coupler with Torsion Suspension and 5-1/2 Inch Offset Improve Turning Clearnace
  • This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler, part # 325-GH-7002, replaces the current coupler on your trailer and provides 5-1/2 inches of offset. The offset moves the trailer back 5 inches to provide more clearance between your truck and trailer when executing sharp turns. The biggest benefit of this coupler are the torsion flex cords that absorb the shock of your trailer. This makes your ride much smoother, which is better on you and your trailer.

  • Minimum Tongue Weight for Shock Absorption of Gen-Y Ball Mount to Work
  • It is correct that for each of the Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mounts that we carry, such as # 325-GH-1224, the minimum tongue weight needs to be 1,200 lbs. Unfortunately there isn't a ball mount with shock absorption which will work for your tongue weight, but I do recommend checking out the Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # DTSTBM6400. This uses a self-tensioning, anti-rattle system to stop rattling and movement in the hitch of your 2017 Ford F-250. It has a 4" drop or 5" rise and comes with...
