WD hitch

I pull a 23 FB with a Cayenne diesel. I use an Equal-i-zer 1000 lb hitch. It has worked great, especially if you get the plastic plates for the sway bar mount to get rid of the “groaning”.

One thing if you would like to check, make sure the hitch ball shank is the correct length. I’ve replaced two hitch balls on the newly installed dealer fitted Equal-I-Zer hitches where the long shank interferes with the trunnions as they turn thru their range.

Simple inspection. Any witness marks on bottom of shank in an arc pattern? Or shank projects below bottom of hitch head. It is noticeable.

It’s a stout hitch. Correct length avail at equalizer or I found at tractor supply also.

You may be perfect and never ever loose one of any of them. That's not a good thing to depend on. Buy a couple of spares of each and put them where you can find them. Finding that this or that has gone missing just as you are about to pull out ... no fun at all.

I'm looking for a place to buy the "hair clips" for the Equalizer pins in bulk ...


Try what i did: Tie a 6 inch or so piece of nylon string to each pin, and paint each one with RED NAIL POLISH if (when) you drop it it is easy to find in the gravel or grass. BINGO.

Same with the "L" shaped brackets, pain them as well. I never lost any!
