Review of Blue Ox Weight Distribution Hitch - 3,500 lb Weight Distribution - BXW0350

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution System with Sway Control. So if you're not familiar with what a weight distribution system does, when you're towing a trailer, if you don't have a weight distribution system, typically, all your trailer weight is gonna push down on your ball, so that's gonna cause your vehicle to sag and all that weight to be on that one point. By using a weight distribution system, it's going to apply pressure back to the trailer so that that pivot point or that point of connection can raise back up, and your weight is gonna be evenly distributed between all the axles on your vehicle and your trailer. So that is gonna have a lot of benefits for you. It's gonna give you a lot more control, stability. more

Adding a weight distribution system to your towing setup, it's going to help alleviate the squatting problem that you sometimes get when you're hauling a trailer.

That can put a lot of pressure on your rear suspension. more

Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the Curt Trunnion Style Weight Distribution System. A weight distribution system is going to help with that problem that you probably have experienced where all of the weight of your trailer pushes down on your ball, on your hitch, and it causes the back end of your vehicle to sag, and the front end of your trailer to go down, so it's kind of like a V there at that connection point. A weight distribution system is going to have these two bars, which help to spread out the tension. And it's kind of like a wheel barrel so it lifts up on that back end to help raise that connection point so that all the weight is being distributed through the axles on both the vehicle and your trailer so that everything is going to ride appropriately again.Now this system is a really nice option for you. more

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a quick look at the Curt Short Arm Weight Distribution System with trunnion bars. This is going to help to alleviate a lot of the problems that happen whenever you're doing any kind of bumper towing or using that hitch on the back of your vehicle. If your vehicle is rated for weight distribution and so is your hitch, this is going to help you to make sure that you get the most out of your components, out of your setup. Basically what it does is it transfers the weight from being put all on the back axle of our towing vehicle and evens it out so that we're spreading it out over all of our axles. That helps to reduce any kind of squat on the backend of our vehicle, which can make a big improvement to the overall handling, braking and feel of your vehicle while you're towing.A lot of people like to use these for their enclosed trailers, maybe a pop-up camper or some other type of towing that you're going to be doing and you are going to be going for a long way. more

Michael: Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the Reese Weight Distribution System. Now this is going to be a great option for those of you who maybe haul some smaller trailers. Even with your smaller trailers, you'll notice that as you put the weight in, all that weight is going onto your ball mount on your vehicle, which can cause the backside of your vehicle to kind of sag down. That's got several different side effects, one, the front end will probably come up causing your headlights to be in the eyes of oncoming traffic. It can also cause your steering to be kind of light there on the front end, as that weight is lifted up, your tires don't get as much traction. more

Shane: Hey, everyone. Shane here with etrailer.com. Today I have a 2014 Keystone Passport Ultra Lite Grand Touring Travel trailer, and I'm going to walk through how to install the Fastway e2 weight distribution setup.What are some of the reasons why we would want weight distribution One, when we load our trailer on our vehicle, it drops the back of the vehicle and raises the front of the vehicle. That can put a lot of unnecessary stress, back axle. Front end, it raises our headlights, tire wear, it messes with our steering, messes with our braking. It takes the nose of the trailer and it dips it down, which means, on a dual axle trailer, it's picking up the back axle so that you're getting most of your weight put on the front one. more

Now, if you're not familiar with what a weight distribution system does, that's going to solve one of the major problems that we run into when we're towing. So if you've ever been towing, you know the effects that your trailer can have on the ride comfort. As you're driving down the road, you're going to be white knuckling it trying to prevent the trailer from swaying side to side if there's big gusts of wind, or if you're passing a semi-truck and it can reduce your steering control, bring your headlights up off the ground, there's a lot of different problems that you can run into. Weight distribution system is going to help with all of that.So if you look at this graphic, you can see, as our trailer is pushing down on our hitch on our truck, it's going to bring that front end up, which is going to make our steering light and bring up our headlights into other driver's eyes and things. We want it to be like that bottom picture, where it's nice and level so that we have full control over both the vehicle and the trailer and it's going to reduce the wear on our vehicle. more

Review of Reese Weight Distribution - WD Only - RE94FR

Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com, and today we're taking a look at the Reese weight distribution system with included shank and a round bar design. So basically I'm just going to go over what is going to come in the kit and also why you would want to have a weight distribution system for your towing setup.So whenever you're towing anything on the back of your vehicle, if you're using a hitch ball, it's going to push down on that hitch ball and cause a lot of squat in your towing vehicle. That's just the nature of it, you're putting more pressure on that rear axle in your towing vehicle. And it can make your suspension wear out more prematurely, it can unbalance your vehicle, so instead of it sitting nice and level now it's starting to tip up with that front end going up, your headlights are starting to point up in the air, you don't have the same sort of connection with the road that you used to, so braking and steering can be effected, and just all around isn't too comfortable and it also really isn't too safe. So by having a weight distribution system, we're able to spread that weight out across our axles and our trailer and our towing vehicle equally so that we don't have that pinpointed weight all at the back of our towing vehicle. So it's definitely going to make the ride more comfortable, safer, we're going to be able to have more control with our towing vehicles. more

Now this is a nice high-performance system, which is designed to offer the best in weight distribution with the easy-to-adjust forged head, nice raised ball platform and the flexible powder-coated steel trunnion spring bars.Now the tongue weight rating is your most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system you should use. Basically, if the bars of the system you choose are rated too high for your setup, they'll create a rigid ride which can result in a bouncing trailer. And on the other hand, if the bars are not rated high enough, the system will be unable to properly distribute the weight, rendering it virtually useless. So to determine the proper weight rating for weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight, then add the weight of any cargo that's behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle.Combine those two and that'll make up your tongue-weight rating for a weight distribution system. more

When towing something like this, what happens when you're going down the highway, if you don't have weight distribution, if it has a lot of tongue weight, it pushes the back of the vehicle down, pulls the front of the vehicle up, and it affects your braking, your steering, your tire wear. It also affects the rear suspension. And with pulling a trailer, you get a lot of sway movement when you're passing tractor trailers, maybe you get a cross wind or something like that.Adding a weight distribution system will transfer the weight not only to the trailer, but it's going to transfer it also back to the front of the wheels, brings the back of the vehicle back up so you get normal braking functions, normal steering, and your tires are going to wear more efficiently. more

It's more effective than friction sway control systems by correcting sway before it really begins- or before it becomes noticeable.The unit features a solid state gyroscope which senses sway and activates all the trailer breaks simultaneously, and it has an accelerometer that monitors the speed and determines the appropriate break force needed to correct sway at that speed. It also comes with a light pod that mounts no the front of your trailer and signals the system, um, is functioning properly.So what that does is that allows you to look in your rear view mirror and see the status of the sway control system. Solid green illuminates when no issues are detected, and then various green and red light patterns signal when a fault is detected.The unit features a nice molded construction. more

Tuson Electronic Sway Control System Review- Video

Tuson Electronic Sway Control System Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Tucson electronic sway control system for trailer brakes. Designed to work for one up to four axles. The part number is 335TSC-1000.Now our Tucson sway control system has been designed to constantly monitor our trailer yaw. There's an accelerometer inside that can sense when our trailer starts moving side to side in those sudden onset sway events and will use the trailer brakes to get ahead of that and correct it. Essentially what it's going to use is a proprietary algorithm that can determine the difference between a quick steering situation, like if we're trying to avoid some trash or some debris or something like that on the road, or whether we're in one of those quick onset situations where our trailer is really getting out of control.When it senses the latter, when we're starting to lose that trailer control, this is going to send a signal through the purple and the pink wire, to either the left side or the right side of the trailer, that does this with its superior processing capabilities. This is going to be able to take all the critical elements needed and figure out exactly how much pressure, how much force, should go to each side of the trailer, and in what rhythm and in what pattern to get this under control.We can head down the road, and we won't have to worry about those sway events that can be quite scary and without the proper sway control system, requires a lot of immediate action from the driver to get it back under control.This system handles all of that for us. more

Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution System Installation - 2003 Nissan Frontier

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2003 Nissan Frontier, we're gonna be installing Reese's Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, Part# RP66083.A weight distribution system is gonna take that weight of your trailer that's lowering down the back of your vehicle and help return that factory ride height and make it overall handle better. This is gonna take the weight from your trailer and redistribute it evenly on both your front and rear axle. That's gonna get you closer to your factory unloaded ride height, and it's gonna make it handle much closer to as if you weren't pulling a trailer.As a side benefit, it's gonna lower your headlights while hooked up to a trailer making it easier to see at night and allow your trailer to track behind your vehicle more accurately so you don't have to worry about those turns where your trailer just doesn't follow you quite right.And unlike other weight distribution systems that connect directly to the arms using the chain, this one has the pivoting bracket that works as an anti-sway. This will help keep your trailer from bobbing back and forth when going down the road. It will make you feel better when going over uneven pavement.This weight distribution system is suited for trailers with a ton weight between 400 and 800 pounds and can work with up to a 10,000 pound gross trailer weight, and unlike some weight distribution systems, you can back up with this one. You don't have to worry about disconnecting anything when you get in a tight spot.Before you begin your installation, you're gonna wanna take some measurements. more
