Does Tongue Weight Need to be Factored After Weight Distribution System is Installed and Setup


I have a 28inch Airstream Flying Cloud with a loaded weight capacity of 7600lbs. I use a Ford F-250 as a TV with a Blue OX WD hitch. Is it correct for me to assume that as long as the hitch tension bars are adjusted for a level trailer towing position, the WD hitch system will compensate for the tongue weight ? Or should I install a weigh safe hitch scale?


Expert Reply:

If you have a properly rated and setup weight distribution system installed on your towing setup like you mentioned and you are under the towing capacity for the vehicle you do not need to worry about the tongue weight figure. Also, a tongue weight scale is not compatible with any of the systems we have and would not be accurate either due to the spring bar tension.
