Video Transcript for Review of Draw-Tite Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - 19260

Today we're going to take a look at the Draw Tite 1-7/8 inch diameter chrome hitch ball, has a one inch shank diameter and a 2,000 pound weight capacity. Now this hitch ball installs onto your ball mount, provides the connection point for your trailer's coupler. This does use the fine threads to provide an exceptionally tight and strong grip. It's made of a cold forged steel, which is very strong and durable and you can notice it has a nice corrosion resistant Chrome finish to it. These flat edges right here, these are built in wrench flats, make it very easy to hold the ball in place while you're tightening the nut.Does include the lock washer and the nut, so when you go to install this, you'll drop this through the ball hole in your ball mount. Put your washer on, take your nut, go ahead and install your nut and then tighten your nut all the way down until it tightens up and then torque it to the manufacturer specifications.

The ball diameter again, which is marked on the top is 1-7/8 inch. The weight capacity, which is also stamped up there is 2,000 pounds. Give you a few dimensions on this. The shank diameter, which is critical because when you go to put this on a ball mount, you do want to make sure sure the ball Mount has the correct platform thickness and ball hole diameter.So the diameter on the shank is going to be right at one inch. Total length is 2-1/8 inches.

And again, it's designed to fit a ball mount that has a one inch diameter ball hole and a platform thickness of any words from a half an inch to one inch deck. But that should do it for the review on the Draw Tite 1-7/8 inch chrome hitch ball with the one inch shank diameter and a 2,000 pound weight capacity.

Comments
Sorry I did not write back sooner, it’s has been a busy October. I really like everything that I bought. So far I have only used the hitch for my bike rack. But I am planning on using a friends trailer for some yard work and home project jobs. I am a welder by trade and everything is well built and as expected, no issues with anything. I especially like how easy the electrical was to connect to the factory harness. My friend who owns the trailer recently bought another truck and with my recommendation he also purchased a trailer hitch and the other parts he needed from etrailer.com. I have recommended etrailer.com to literally everyone I know. I really like the products and will be a return customer.

  • How to Pick Out a Ball Mount for a 1-1/4 inch Hitch
    It sounds like you are looking for a ball mount that will fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch and also a 1-7/8 inch diameter hitch ball to fit the ball mount. What you will want to do first is check out the help article I attached that details how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount that you would need and then check out the link I attached that will take you to the page that has all of the 1-1/4 inch ball mounts we carry.

  • Use One Ballmount to Tow Multiple Trailers - a 1-7/8 Inch and a 2 Inch Diameter Trailer Ball
    I would like to clarify some terminology so that we are on the same page, the hitch is the part attached to your 2008 Chevy Uplander. Then the ball mount or drawbar is attached to the hitch receiver using a pin and clip, or locking mechanism. Then the ball mount is outfitted with the appropriate size trailer ball. The diameter of the trailer ball shank needs to be compatible with hole the ball mount and the diameter of the trailer ball needs to be compatible with the trailer coupler. Since...

  • Can a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Ball Be Replaced with a 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball on a 2 Inch Hitch Receiver
    To replace the hitch ball you would simply loosen and remove the hitch ball nut and pull the ball out of the ball mount hole. You may need a large wrench to loosen the nut. The Tow Ready 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball, part # 19260, would be a great fit for your application, as it features a 1 inch diameter shank that should be compatible with your ball mount. Please note, however, that some ball mounts for 2 inch x 2 inch hitches require a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank. If your current...

  • What is the Likely Ball Diameter Required for a 2012 Flagstaff Micro Lite Trailer
    A 1-7/8 inch ball is usually found on very small trailers. While it is possible that the trailer takes a 1-7/8 inch ball it seems more likely that it would take a 2 inch since the dry weight of the trailer is 3,630 pounds. The coupler should have the ball requirement stamped into the top of it. Most stand alone 1-7/8 inch balls max out at 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight though there are a few exceptions that are rated higher. Another option is to go with an interchangeable ball...

  • Utility Trailer Coupler Will Not Secure Around Trailer Hitch Ball
    Having a system that doesn't work properly can be a very unsettling problem. If the coupler is not locking on the trailer ball, it sounds like you actually have a ball that is too small. Check out the coupler and the size ball required is typically stamped into the coupler somewhere. Check the latch pin on the coupler to see if it is bent. If so, let me know what the make and model of the coupler is and we can see if there is a repair kit available. I think the problem may be...

  • Is a Hitch Necessary for a 1995 Ford Ranger With Bumper That has Hitch Ball Holes?
    If your brother's 1995 Ford Ranger has a bumper with integrated hitch ball holes, then you may not need a hitch, depending on the weight of the camper and the towing capacity of the Ranger using the bumper hitch ball. If his Ranger did have the ability to pull your pop-up camper, you would only need a hitch ball with the same diameter as the coupler on your camper, and the shank diameter that fits the hitch ball hole on your brother's Ranger. For example, the Draw-Tite # 19260 is a 1-7/8"...

  • Can a 1-7/8 inch Ball be Used to Replace a 2 inch Ball on a Trailer that is Hard to Unhook
    No, it is not safe to use a 1-7/8 inch ball with a trailer that has a 2 inch ball coupler. Most couplers have an adjustment for the latching mechanism that may solve your issue. If you are hooking and unhooking on a surface that is not level, normally uphill or downhill, this too can cause the issue you have explained. If you can attach and un hook on a more level surface there will not be as much pressure between the hitch ball and coupler and the process will be much easier. If...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2018 Honda Pilot
    Adding an aftermarket transmission cooler is never a bad idea, as it can essentially prolong the life of a vehicle's transmission while also improving its overall performance. With that being said, with the extreme light duty towing that you plan on doing with your Honda Pilot, one probably isn't necessarily. Installing a cooler can also be a bit tricky for the Pilot that has the 9 speed automatic transmission like yours, which is why only the 6 speed models come up through our fit guide,...

    I recommend the Draw-Tite receiver, part # 76116, for your 2015 Volvo XC60 T6 R-Design. The R-Design model likely requires you to remove and trim the rear bumper cover but it's still going to fit. I've lined a video that shows the installation but it's not an R-Design so it doesn't show the trimming unfortunately. The recommended ball mount is one with a 2 inch drop and 3/4 inch rise like the Draw-Tite # 2923. It fits hitch balls with a 1 inch diameter shank like 2 inch ball # 63845...

This ball mount will give you the adjustability to tow your travel trailer level and will give you two hitch ball size options that are integrated.

    By all means, take your children camping! I took a look at the owner's manual for a 2010 Honda Odyssey and it looks like the maximum total trailer weight (the weight of your loaded trailer) you Odyssey can tow is going to depend on the number of occupants. According to the manual, the number of occupants is calculated at 150 lbs per person, so take that into account, though it seems likely your Odyssey will still have enough capacity for a 2,300 lb trailer, just be mindful of the amount...

Curt has confirmed that the # C13420 is indeed a fit on a 2020 Kia Telluride, as you can see in the two install photos I've provided. In order to install the hitch, the spare tire needs to be removed and the exhaust lowered temporarily to allow easier access to the mounting points.

Since your trailer spec is 14 inches from the coupler lip to the ground that means you need a rise of 1/2 inch. For that we have the Draw Tite ball mount part # 2923 which has a 3/4 inch rise. For a 2 inch hitch ball you'd want the part # 63845 or for a 1-7/8 inch part # 19260 and you'd be set.

    For a fixed ball mount you really do need to know the height difference between the top of the receiver opening on the hitch and the distance from the ground to the bottom of the coupler in order to get a ball mount with the right amount of rise or drop to tow the trailer level. You can get around that by instead using an adjustable ball mount such as # MT70067. This ball mount offers up to an 8 inch rise or 10 inch drop. It is rated for 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight (so it will...

For a 2 inch ball you'd want the part # 63845 or for a 1-7/8 inch ball you'd want the part # 19260. All of these would fit and work well with the Draw Tite hitch part # 75673 that you referenced.

So since your trailer has a distance from the bottom of the coupler lip to the ground when level of 14-1/2 inches you'd want a drop of 1-3/4 inches. The closest we have to that is a 2 inch drop like the Draw Tite ball mount part # 2923 which would work well. For a 2 inch ball you'd want the part # 63845...
