Expert Answers about Pro Series

  • Is the Head of the 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS30093 Tilting Back Going to be a Problem for Hookup
  • If your Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS30093 is resting as is demonstrated in the attached picture that is perfectly normal. It actually makes connecting your trailer a little easier. When backing up you will just need to aim the 5th wheel hitch head towards the middle of the pin box as that is where the king pin is. If you are still a little uneasy about hooking up your 5th wheel you can use a backup camera to assist you. I recommend going with a magnetic camera as they can...

  • Is Pro Series Ball Mount Made in USA?
  • The Pro Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount # 63071 is made in China. While there isn't a version of this ball mount that is exactly the same, there is something very, very similar that is made right here in the United States of America. Curt's Channel Style Adjustable Ball Mount # C45900 fits 2" hitches, comes with 2" and 2-5/16" hitch balls, has a maximum capacity of 14,000 lbs, a rise of 5-1/4", a drop of 6" and a built-in anti-rattle device. I have included a link to a review video of...

  • Recommended Sway Control Without Weight Distribution
  • In my opinion you have the best sway control utilizing your current system like # RP66088, so I personally would stick with what you have. The dual cam with spring bars keeps the trailer in line by actively fighting sway. It does require more setup but based on the photo you have that done well. There are other options you can consider if you simply don't want to utilize the weight distribution system. You can use two of the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. This uses...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 3500-lb Camper Trailer
  • Apart from the white-knuckle sway effects from sudden wind gusts and air blasts from passing semi trucks, there are some other basic considerations to help you decide if and when you need a sway control system for your trailer set-up. The linked article on weight distribution/sway control (WD/SC) systems may help you on this point. Although we do offer basic friction style sway control devices like # 83660 and # 17200 that can help counteract trailer sway these are not going to be able...

  • Recommended Replacement Inner Sleeve For Gooseneck Trailer
  • One inner tube I recommend is part # BD1289050300. This tube has a 30,000-lb weight capacity, s designed for a 2-5/16 inch ball, and has a vertical range of adjustment of 8-inches. I have attached a link to the gooseneck inner tubes we offer you can check out. As long as you find the right diameter tube you can use any of them.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed for Pro Series Hitch
  • I'd recommend going with a custom install fifth wheel rail kit as it will minimize drilling and install time on your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed. For that the Reese kit part # RP50074-58 would be a great option confirmed as a fit. Reese is made by the same company as Pro Series so these two would work well together.

  • Trailer Pipe Mounted Swivel Jack with Retracted Length Measurements
  • The Pro Series Round, Pipe-Mount Swivel Jack w/ Footplate - Sidewind - 10" Lift - 2,000 lbs # PS1401060303 has an overall length when retracted of 16-5/8 inches. This jack does not have a wheel. For a similar jack with a wheel, I recommend the Bulldog Round, Pipe-Mount Swivel Jack - Sidewind - 10" Lift - 2,000 lbs # BD1541150301 along with the Replacement Heavy-Duty, 6" Caster for 2" Diameter Bulldog Jacks - 1,500 lbs # BDCP555. Without the wheel, the retracted length of this jack is...

  • Is Pilot Brake Controller Compatible With 2018 Ram 1500
  • I reached out to the manufacturer of the Pilot 2-6 Brake Electronic Brake Controller # 80550. They just advised me that the Pilot # 80550 will not work on a 2018 Ram. The reason why is because the brake light signal circuit only outputs 4 to 6 volts (the Ram requires a controller that can output at least 12 volts) which isn't enough for the brake controller to function properly. As an alternative, the Curt Venturer Trailer Brake Controller # C51110 will work for the 2018 Ram 1500....

  • Recommended Hitch Receiver Reducer Sleeve for Use with Pro Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount
  • The Pro Series Adjustable 2-Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # 63071 referenced in your question does include the two different sized built-in hitch balls (2 inches and 2-5/16 inches). When using the 2-5/16 inch ball, this ball mount is rated at 14,000 pounds. This ball mount also has a maximum drop of 5-7/8 inches and maximum rise of 4-5/8 inches. I have attached a video review for you to check out. If the trailer hitch receiver opening on your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500 is 2-1/2 inches, I recommend...

  • Replacement Head for Older Draw-Tite Round Bar Weight Distribution System
  • I spoke with my contact at Horizon Global (parent company of Draw-Tite) regarding your older Draw-Tite Weight Distribution System. He stated that your particular system is comparable to the current Pro-Series (also owned by Horizon Global) Round WD System # PS49903. For a replacement head that will be compatible with your existing system, you can use the Replacement Weight Distribution Bolt-Together Round Bar Head # PS58442. This includes the 2-5/16 inch chrome hitch ball, sway control...

  • Friction Sway Control Recommendation for Boat Trailer Sway behind Fifth Wheel
  • Towing more than one trailer does make things more interesting. What I think would help you though is a friction sway control unit installed between the fifth wheel and the boat trailer like the # 83660. You also need the bracket part # RP26003 installed on the ball mount platform as well. This type of setup is great for reducing sway from semi truck passings etc. Another trick you can try is next time you get sway try pulling the manual over ride lever of your brake controller enough...

  • Why Can't You Back Up when Using Pro Series Weight Distribution System PS49903
  • It is the friction sway control bar in Pro Series Weight Distribution System w Friction Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW Item # PS49903 that will prevent backing up. The problem is that when backing up force is applied differently to the sway control bar so that when turning and backing up it can damage to it or the trailer. All you would have to do though is disengage the sway control bar when you are ready to back up. Weight distribution systems with friction sway...

  • Recommendation for Adding 2nd Friction Sway Control Bar to Trailer
  • To add a second friction sway control, you will need the second Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 and you'll need to weld a tab onto your trailer hitch ball platform like # C45822. The friction bar will simply be inverted on the left side, but that will not impact the function and is designed for use on either side. I've attached an article to assist and 2 bars are recommended on trailers over 26 feet long or if you simply want more sway control. The other option is to use...

  • What is Pro Series Ramp Kit # PS1040200 Designed to Fit
  • If you could come up with a way to secure the ramp part # PS1040200 to a utility trailer it would be possible for it to fit and work well, but we don't have a recommended way to accomplish this. This is designed to fit the Pro Series cargo carrier part # PS1040100 instead. For utility trailer ramps we have the part # 288-07489 instead which would be better for your purpose.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Dimensions and Kit Options for 2018 Ford F-150
  • All industry-standard 5th wheel base rail kits share a common fit with all brands of 5th wheel hitches, including the 15K Pro Series hitch # PS30093 but the install kits vary. We have custom-fit base rails kits that require less drilling and semi-custom kits too. Not all base rails are the same length, however. Reese Custom Install Kit # RP56034-53 fits 5-1/2-foot, 6-1/2-foot and 8-foot bed versions of your 2018 F-150. This kit includes outboard brackets that are easier to install (since...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Trailer with 400 Pound Tongue Weight
  • For your trailer that will have a maximum tongue weight of 400 pounds, the Pro Series Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control # PS49901 referenced in your question will be a good option. Just keep in mind that when calculating the total tongue weight of your setup, you will want to include both the loaded tongue weight of your trailer, along with any added cargo coming from behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. This system has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 550 pounds....

  • Replacement Shank Recommendation to Use Pro Series Weight Distribution System in 2.5 in Hitch
  • You will need a different shank for your weight distribution system since your Pro Series uses washers against the front of the shank to set the angle of the head of the system. I appreciate you sending in the picture that you did as it illustrates this perfectly with the # RP54976. For a similar shank with a solid front on the shank that will work for you we have the Equal-i-zer part # EQ90-02-4800 which would work well.

  • Which Pro Series Weight Distribution System for Trailer with Unloaded Tongue Weight 480 lb
  • Since your unloaded tongue weight is 480 lbs you'd pretty easily get over the 550 lb tongue weight capacity of the Pro Series WD system part # PS49901 which means you'd want the part # PS49902 instead which has a range of 550 to 750 lbs.

  • Recommended Sway Control Option for Small Trailer
  • Sway control is beneficial in towing conditions such as crosswinds or a large truck passing; the system will allow you to have greater stability and control than otherwise. There is a sway control bar that could work for you, the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. This kit uses friction as control, as the cam system is for use in weight distribution systems. The Pro Series attaches to either side of your trailer tongue, and mounts with a sway-control bracket, either # RP26003...

  • Can a 2015 Kia Sedona Safely Tow a 3,700 Pound Jayco Travel Trailer
  • What I recommend is a trailer that has a gross trailer weight that meets or is under the towing capacity of your 2015 Kia Sedona which is 3,500 pounds as long as the trailer has brakes. You can tow a trailer rated higher provided that the actual weight of the trailer does not exceed that 3,500 pound tow vehicle capacity. So they aren't lying about that but you do run the risk of overloading the tow vehicle by going with a heavier trailer. You will likely need suspension enhancement...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 9,000 Pound Trailer and 2000 Ford Excursion
  • Pro Series Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW, 750 lbs TW # PS49902 is very much under rated for the tongue weight of your trailer. Considering that your measured tongue weight is 1,044 without water and other things even the 1,200 pound system # PS49904 might not be enough once loaded and ready to tow. I recommend going to a 1,500 pound system such as Curt Weight Distribution System # C17333. The only other part needed is a ball. The ball you...

  • Do Trailer Jack Wheel Casters Allow Trailer to Move a Couple Inches to Allow Easier Hitching Up
  • Wheel casters like the part # PS1400750340 that you referenced are designed for exactly what you mentioned. They allow you to move the coupler of a trailer a couple inches over to fit on a coupler ball. These aren't universal fit wheels though and they'll require you know what jack you have to pick out the correct wheel. For example, this wheel fits the jack # PS1400600303.

  • Recommended Friction Sway Control System For Dual Friction Setup
  • For the dual friction you are looking for, I recommend adding the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit - Economy - by Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitch # 83660 to your hitch ball. This adjustable friction sway bar can be added using the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts - Class III and IV # RP26003 or the 1-1/4 inch ball mount bracket # RP26005. It is recommended to pull the cotter pin to disengage this bar when backing up. You can also expand this system by adding another...

  • Trailer Towing Setup for a 2012 Toyota Highlander Limited to Tow 2 Jet Skis
  • For your 2012 Toyota Highlander Limited, you'll need a hitch, the wiring, a brake controller and an anti-sway system. Based on my research, it looks like Toyota recommends both a braking and a sway control device on a trailer at this weight on your vehicle. Prior to installing a hitch and towing a trailer, you'll want to verify your vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) and tongue weight rating (TWR) on the sticker inside the driver's side door jamb to ensure that you are aware...

  • Friction Sway Control vs. Weight Distribution and Integrated Sway Control for 20-Foot Trailer
  • When a trailer weighs more than half the weight of the tow vehicle, quite likely in the case of your 4000-lb trailer, there will typically be a need for sway control. There are two types of sway control, the stand-alone friction bar style like # 83660 and those shown on the linked page, all of which use controlled friction to help stop trailer sway, and the integrated type of sway prevention that comes with weight distribution systems (WD/SC). These systems both equalize the load on...
