I purchase a used trailer recently and have made several purchases from etrailer to include a Straight-Line Weight Distribution Hitch (RP 66084), 2 5/16 Ball (19286), RV Generator Plug (CAM 55333), Aqua Hose, sealing trim for roof and side seams etc... All of the products have arrived on time and are of high quality. The trunnion bar holes on the RP 66084 were missed drilled so I called etrailer(Laser) and he shipped me out replacement bars which arrived sooner than expected along with a return label for the miss-drilled bars. Products are quality, service is quality and inventory is exceptional. It is a pleasure doing business with them. 404149

I needed a weight distribution system that would allow me to safely tow my 8,000# boat and trailer. James was very helpful suggesting the best rig for my application: surge brake compatible, able to be backed up while connected, and properly sized given my tongue weight. I also needed the pole tongue adapter. I was amazed that the parts arrived just two days later! I have done a pre-install check and all will fit beautifully. etrailer and James did an outstanding job from selection to delivery! 641989

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Hitch Ball

  • What Length Ball Shank is Needed for a Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System
    The shank length that you will want for the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System is 2-3/4 inches. For a 2 inch ball, we recommend using part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball we recommend using part # 19286.

  • What Size Hitch Ball Is Used With The Blue Ox Sway Pro Replacement Head For Weight Distribution
    Most of the weight distribution systems use a hitch ball that is 2 inches or 2-5/16 inches diameter. The Blue Ox SwayPro head uses a hitch ball that has a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank. The ball diameter size depends on the size of the coupler on your trailer. For a 2 inch hitch ball that fits the SwayPro I recommend part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch diameter ball you can use part # 19286.

  • How To Install A 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball To A Draw Bar That Has Limited Access to the Hitch Ball Nut
    It sounds like you might have the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball on a weight distribution head assembly which can limit the access to the hitch ball nut. The weight distribution head is bolted to the the shank that inserts into the trailer hitch. I am including a link to a picture of what a weight distribution head might look like to help you decide if that is what you might have. To tighten the nut on the hitch ball you will need to use a 1-7/8 inch socket instead of a wrench. The socket should...

  • Hitch Ball Size for Arctic Fox 25Y Travel Trailer and SwayPro Weight Distribution
    The required ball size for your Arctic Fox 25Y travel trailer will be stamped on the coupler. Based on the specs I was able to find it looks like you will need a 2-5/16 inch ball for your SwayPro weight distribution system. You can use # 19286.

  • Weight Distribution System for a 2003 GMC Envoy that has Load-Leveling Air Suspension
    I'd suggest towing the trailer without the weight distribution system, and see how everything performs. If you are happy with the way the trailer tows, you won't need to do anything. If you find that the rear of your Envoy squats quite a bit, even with the load leveling system, I'd recommend the Reese High Performance Trunnion System, part # RP66540. This system is designed for trailers with tongue weights ranging from 200- 600 lbs. Are you currently experiencing a sway problem? If you...

  • Recommended Hitch Ball Size for 36 Foot Camper by Keystone

  • What Size Socket is Needed For 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball
    Most of the 2-5/16 inch hitch balls will use either a 1-inch diameter shank or 1-1/4 inch diameter shank. The nut size on a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank, like the Tow Ready 2-5/16 Inch Hitch Ball, part # 19286, will use a 1-7/8 inch socket. A 2-5/16 inch hitch ball with a 1 inch shank will use a 1-1/2 inch socket. The torque specs on a hitch ball with a 1-inch diameter shank is 250 ft. lbs and on a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank is 450 ft. lbs

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Riverside RV Model 195
    The weight distribution system I would recommend for your Riverside RV Model 195 that most likely is going to have a tongue weight around 580-700 lbs is the Strait Line part # RP66083 which has a tongue weight range of 400-800 lbs and features the only sway control on the market designed to fight sway before it starts. For a 2-5/16 inch ball you would want the # 19286.

  • 2-5/16 Inch Ball for a Curt Pintle Hitch
    The ball part of hitch ball # 19286 is a little more than 3 inches tall so it would not work for you. You need ball # 63052. Provided the shank diameter you need is 1-1/8 inches, it does have the 2-3/4 inch height for the ball portion. Or for a 1-1/4 inch diameter shank use ball # 63019.

  • How to Determine Hitch Ball Size Needed for R-Vision Travel Trailer
    To determine the correct hitch ball size for your R-Vision Travel Trailer, you will just need to look at the trailer's coupler. The hitch ball size it is compatible with should be stamped into the coupler's metal housing or may be located on a safety sticker. Once you find what size hitch ball you need, you will just need to make sure the shank diameter and length is compatible with your existing ball mount. Lastly, you will need to make sure the hitch ball you choose has the required...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 2017 Passport Ultra Lite Grand Touring
    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. Since your tongue weight is 600...

  • What Size Hitch Ball Does a Keystone Passport Ultra Lite Grand Touring 2920BH Use
    Unfortunately, there is no way for me to know what size hitch ball the coupler on a Keystone Passport Ultra Lite Grand Touring 2920BH accepts. It will more than likely be either a 2" hitch ball or 2-5/16" hitch ball. The only way to know for sure would be to look at the coupler itself as the correct size will be stamped into it or call the manufacturer with your VIN. I have linked our selection of hitch balls for you once you know both the diameter of the ball/shank.

  • What Size Socket is Needed to Tighten Trailer Hitch Ball # 19286
    You will need a 1-7/8 inch deep well socket for the 1-7/8 inch nut on ball # 19286. To install the ball you can use a bench vise to hold it while torquing down the nut or if a vise is not available you can put the ball mount in the hitch so the ball is facing to the side instead of up.

  • Can a Trailer that Requires a 2-5/16 Inch Ball be Towed Using a 2 Inch Ball
    You will want to match the ball you use with what the trailer coupler requires. It is definitely possible that the coupler could come off of the ball if you are using a ball that is too small for the coupler. We have many 2-5/16 inch balls. I have included a link to them for you. You will need to make sure that you get one that has the right shank diameter to fit your ball mount's ball hole.

  • How to Choose Weight Distribution System to Tow Horse Trailer
    To ensure that you choose the correct weight distribution system for your horse trailer, we will need to know some information about your trailer. The most important factor to consider when purchasing a weight distribution system is the tongue weight of your trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. Each weight distribution system that you look at will have a tongue weight capacity range. You will want to choose a system that encompasses the tongue weight of your trailer. For...

  • Troubleshooting Hitch Ball Mount When Nut is Welded to Ball Mount
    For the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # 19286 you generally would want to use the lock washer on the underside. Due to the fact that you have a welded nut there, you cannot use the lockwasher and should not use it on the other side of the platform. I recommend checking your hitch ball for a proper fit before towing each time as that ball may work its way loose. Unfortunately we don't carry a threadlocker compatible with that size nut, but that may help as well. You may want to simply change...

  • Why Isn't There a 2-5/16" Hitch Ball Available with a 3/4" Diameter Shank
    You are right that there aren't any 2-5/16" hitch balls available that feature a smaller 3/4" diameter shank. This is simply because the higher weight capacity that a 2-5/16" ball provides requires a larger diameter shank to maintain this rating. The most common shank diameter size for this ball is a 1-1/4" like the Draw-Tite # 19286. You also definitely want to make sure you are using a 2-5/16" hitch ball if that is what the coupler on your trailer accepts. Using a smaller 2" ball...

  • Hitch and 2-5/16 Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer
    The problem is that the ball holes of ball mounts for a 1-1/4 inch hitch are all 3/4 inch in diameter and thd 2-5/16 inch balls are all for 1 inch diameters and up. The reason for this is that trailers that call for that big of a ball are going to be too heavy for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. The only solution I would have for you would be to upgrade to a 2 inch hitch like the part # 75132 so that you can go with a ball mount that will accommodate a 2-5/16 inch ball on your 2002 Mercury Mountaineer....
