Expert Answers about Weigh Safe

  • Can the Weigh Safe Hitch Ball with Tongue Weight Scale be used with Husky Weight Distribution System
  • The # WSUN-3 has not specifically been tested with a Husky system, but in general there are clearance issues when using this particular ball with weight distribution systems (WDS), as the WDS bars have been known to crush the scale during turns. I've included a photo that a customer submitted of what happened when they used a similar product with a WDS. Due to the lack of success with most other systems, I advise against using the # WSUN-3 with WDS. Instead, I recommend going with a...

  • Comparing 6" Drop and 8" Drop Weigh Safe Ball Mounts to Use on a 2015 Chevy Tahoe
  • It looks like you have half of the information needed to choose a ball mount with the correct Rise or Drop for your towing application. To know exactly what you need you will need to measure the height of the bottom of your trailer coupler when it is on level ground. You will then subtract the height of your coupler from the 23 inches that you measured from the top of the inside of your hitch receiver on your 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe. With that being said, since the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount...

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Ball Mount For 2017 Ford F-250 4x4 Diesel
  • The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 11" Rise - 10K # WS10-2, # WS10-2 for 2-1/2 inch hitch, or # WS10-3 for 3 inch hitch receiver is a great choice for your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty. This adjustability will give you a great hitch for towing a variety of trailers level and has the built in tongue weight scale to help.

  • Troubleshooting Weigh Safe -2 Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Hitch with Increase Movement At Hitch Ball
  • The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2" Hitch - 4" Drop, 5" Rise - 14.5K # WS4-25 should not have a lot of play in the ball. Make sure the pin that holds the ball in place is working properly and the hitch ball is the correct size for the trailer and weight you are pulling. You should be using the 2-5/16 inch ball for that 10-12,000 lb trailer. A little bit of play is normal, but increasing amounts of play is a problem and may require replacement parts. You may...

  • Best Ball Mount for Use with Rock Tamers on a 2017 Ford F-350 with 3" Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • In order to choose the correct ball mount for your 2017 Ford F-350 you will first need to do a bit of measuring to find the correct rise/drop needed to keep your trailer level. To find this you will need to measure the distance from the ground to the top of the inside edge of your truck's trailer hitch and subtract that from the distance to the ground to the bottom of the coupler on your travel while level. You can see this process outline in the attached ball mount help article. The...

  • The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise - 14.5K # WS8-25 is made from a solid block of T6 billet aluminum so it is rustproof by material not finish. The tongue weight scale is sealed so you don't need to worry about water. You can submerge this ball mount without any issue. I confirmed this with the manufacturer for you.

  • Is Weigh Safe Hitch Ball with Scale Accurate and Does it Work with Low Tongue Weights
  • The Weigh Safe ball with built-in scale # WSUN-1 is the only one of its kind. It would not be the best for tongue weight on the lower end of the scale like you said. Tongue weight scale # 5780 would work a little better and it is easier to read. The gauges on either are calibrated correctly.

I contacted the manufacturer and they are confident that it will fit. Once you put it in place on your ball mount and tighten the set screw you will not have to install it again.

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Ball Mount With Scale For 7000 GVWR Trailer And 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • I recommend the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2" Hitch - 6" Drop, 7" Rise - 10K, # WS6-2. This ball mount has a 10,000 lb capacity and 2 hitch balls that come with the unit. It has a 2 inch ball and a 2-5/16 inch ball so you have the versatility to haul different trailer coupler sizes.

  • Availability of Weigh Safe System that Includes Weight Distribution
  • The Weigh Safe ball mounts, like part # WS6-2, do not have a Weight Distribution (WD) system that they are compatible with as a WD system will act as the ball mount. If you need to use a WD system then I recommend using a Tongue Weight Scale # 5780 to help make finding your Tongue Weight (TW) much easier. We recommend using a WD system if your trailer weighs more than half the weight of your tow vehicle. If this is the case for you then I highly recommend using a WD system. I really...

  • Recommended Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount for 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • The Weigh Safe 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # TB8-3 referenced in your question is designed to fit 3 inch receivers, which refers to the inside dimension of the receiver. Since you have a 2-1/2 inch receiver on your 2017 Ford F-350, I instead recommend the 180 Hitch 2-Ball Mount # LTB8-25. This aluminum, adjustable ball mount is designed to fit the hitch on your truck and features a maximum drop of 8 inches or a maximum rise of 9 inches. It has a gross towing weight of 14,500 pounds when...

  • Weigh Safe Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • Sounds like you need an adjustable Weigh Safe Ball Mount for a 2-1/2 inch hitch that can do at least a 5 inch drop. The part # WS8-25 you referenced matches everything except it has an 8 inch drop which may be a bit longer than you'd want. The part # WS6-25 instead might be a better option as it has a drop of up to 6 inches instead.

  • Will Weigh Safe Adapter Work With 2" Hitch Ball That is not From Weigh Safe?
  • The 2-5/16" Adapter # WS07 will work with your 2" ball; you only need to make sure the adapter is completely enclosed around your ball and that there are no gaps around the ball. It is the replacement adapter for Weigh Safe # WSUN-1 but has been confirmed to fit if your hitch ball is not a Weigh Safe.

  • Recommended Ball Mount With 2.5 Inch Shank And 14,500 lb Capacity

The Fastway Flash E Series HD Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 10" Rise - 18K # FA42-00-2925 will give you an 8-7/8 inch distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the hitch ball.

  • Is the Weigh Safe Hitch Ball WSUN-3 Compatible With Reese Steadi-Flex WD Hitch RP66558
  • The Weigh Safe Hitch Ball with Built-In Scale # WSUN-3 is not compatible with a weight distribution/sway control system such as the Reese Steadi-Flex # RP66558. The ball portion alone does have the required 1-inch diameter shank. A better solution for keeping track of your trailer's actual loaded tongue weight is the free-standing Sherline tongue weight scale # 5780. This item offers both a broader range of measurement as well as finer gradations on the dial. This means better accuracy. The...

  • Retaining Pin is Stuck in Weigh Safe Ball Mount Platform
  • If the retaining pin is stuck in your ball mount platform then really the best thing to do would be to remove it however you can (maybe try drilling it out) and replacing it with a new Retaining Pin # WS04. Should you be unable to remove the pin still then you need to simply replace the platform itself. We have part # WS01-5 for 2-1/2" ball mounts, part # WS01 for 2" ball mounts. If by chance you are talking about the 180 platform then you need part # TB01 instead. For replacement...

  • Locking Hitch Pin To Match Key For My Dual Pin Weigh Safe Ball Mount
  • The Locking Dual Pin Assembly and Hitch Pin Set for 180 Hitch and Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts - Keyed Alike, # WS06, is a really convenient feature and both are very good quality locks. This kit is the only way to get the keyed alike feature. If you just want the locking pin and don't care if it isn't keyed identical, I recommend the Bulldog Lifelong Trailer Hitch Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush - 2-1/2" Span - Stainless, # BD580402. This lock uses a ball-bearing locking system to make it...

  • Aluminum Adjustable Ball Mount Needed with 2" and 2-5/16" Stainless Hitch Balls for 2017 Ford F-250
  • If we take 14 away from the 23-1/2 inches that you measured the height of the inside of your 2-1/2 inch receiver to be on your 2017 Ford F-250, that leaves you with 9-1/2 inches. This means that you need an adjustable ball mount with a drop of about 9-1/2 inches for your trailer to ride level. I do have a few options for you to choose from when it comes to an aluminum ball mount with a 2 inch and a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that are stainless steel. The Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount # WS10-25...
