Can You Reverse With the Reese Weight Distribution System Installed


Can you back up with this system being used, I have a 35 foot Jayco 8400 pound trailer. Would this hitch system work.


Expert Reply:

The Reese Weight Distribution Systems like part # RE44FR will allow you to reverse without having to disengage the spring bars. That said, you need to make sure you are doing so at a relatively straight angle meaning you can't put the trailer at say a 90 degree angle in order to get into a tight space. If this is needed you would have to pop the springs bars off which won't take too long. Please note, there are some weight distribution systems that allow for a greater angle during reverse but all have their limitations. The above Reese Weight Distribution System will allow for a great angle than most other options.

In regards to capacity, you made a fine choice with the above option for a 8,500 lb trailer so you are good to go.
