I had previously purchased a different pole tongue adapter that did not work. This one has worked perfectly with my weight distribution hitch. It is well built and heavy and my boat tows better than ever. I could not be happier.




by:

Stacey was very helpful in assisting me with piecing together weight distribution system. The pole tongue adapter by Reese is well built and will certainly provide the requirement needed to distribute weight. Buy with confidence!




by:

Became an excellent solution for two trailers that I had that were configured with a pole tongue style frame. Pleased with how this system has worked with my trailers and weight distribution hitch thus far. Only thing I noticed was the spacing of the holes where the bracket clamps to the tongue. My tongue dimensions did not give me a tight fit using the pre drilled holes in the brackets but a rather sizable gap between the bolts and the tongue. This was easily remedied by adding a spacer to make up the difference.




by:

This pole tongue adapter arrived with two 6-inch connecting bolts that secure the four mounts under the trailer tongue. Sadly, only the outside 1.5 inches of the hex bolts were threaded, which would be great if my trailer tongue was 4 inches wide. Mine is 3 inches wide (a standard width for heavy boat trailers), so I ran out of thread before the part was secured. So I could either get a whole bunch of flat washers (Grade 5), or try to get 5 inch hex bolts. I called Reese, they are shipping me 6-inch fully threaded bolts. Not sure if that is the strongest set-up; I ended up ordering 5 inch partially threaded bolts from Grainger. Grade 5 hex bolts are NOT at [average retail stores]. So a PIT[Y] but not a deal killer.

Works like a charm. I have a heavy boat / trailer with a straight (not a ā€œvā€) tongue and needed a way to hook up a distor hitch. This





by:

So far so good. Had a shop install this add-on bracket for my boat trailer and it allowed me to install the appropriate wd hitch for my surge brake setup and pole tongue.

I really appreciate the follow up. The hitch setup has been working out really well. I am glad I went with the product and your company. Would not hesitate to do it again.

  • How to Install a Weight Distribution System on a Straight Tongue Boat Trailer
    What you need for your boat trailer is a pole tongue adapter like part # RP58393. This product is designed to work on trailers with straight tongues just like your boat trailer. I attached a picture of what it looks like installed. 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...

  • Pole Tongue Adapter for Boat Trailer so that Weight Distribution Can Be Used
    The adapter that you would need would be the pole tongue adapter part # RP58393 to be able to use a weight distribution system with your setup. Since your vehicle requires the use of a WD system to tow a trailer as heavy as yours the only option I can make for you would be to relocate the items on your trailer frame that are currently in the way as they do not make longer spring bar weight distribution systems. They are all right at 30 inches in length.

  • Using a Weight Distribution System on a Boat Trailer With Surge Brakes
    I contacted Venture Trailers Inc. and found that the reason they do not recommend the use of a weight distribution system is because most weight distribution systems are not recommended for trailers with surge brakes because they do not allow the coupler to push into the coupler housing and engaging the brakes. Also due to the fact that they do apply additional stress on the tongue of the trailer like you said and this can be particularly harmful to aluminum frame trailers. There are...

  • What Does a Pole Tongue Adapter Do and are Additional Parts Needed to Install One

The system that you have or choose has built-in sway control and the brackets used to mount to the adapter. Basically what the adapter is doing is providing an artificial A-frame so the weight distribution system can be installed. The first thing you are going to want to do is contact the trailer manufacturer to determine if the trailer...

  • What Causes Intense Trailer Sway at a Certain Speed
    The type of sway you are describing is not going to be fixed by a weight distribution system. You either do not have enough tongue weight forward in the trailer, your suspension is worn out, or your trailer isn't sitting level. Weight distribution systems will help with sway induced by large gusts of wind or passing semi-trucks but not persistent sway that start when getting up to a certain speed. Also nearly all aluminum trailers aren't rated for weight distribution per the manufacturer...

  • Can Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter be Used on an Aluminum Trailer
    The only restriction that the Reese Pole-Tongue Adapter # RP58393 has is that it can't be used with swing-away couplers. Since your trailer has an aluminum frame you're going to want to reach out to your trailer manufacturer to make sure they approve this kind of an adapter and a weight distribution system being used on that trailer frame.

  • Pole Tongue Adapter For Use with a Weight Distribtuion Hitch on a Swing Tongue Boat Trailer
    It is not a good idea to use weight distribution with a folding tongue due to the amount of force applied by the spring bars to the trailer. The pole tongue adapter like the Reese item # RP58393 has a note on the product page saying not to use weight distribution systems with swing arms.

  • Could Reese Pole Tongue Adapter Work with Aluminum Trailer Frame
    If the manufacturer of your trailer says it's okay to use weight distribution and a pole tongue adapter like the part # RP58393 with your aluminum trailer you can but we have found that most manufacturers of aluminum trailers will say not to use WD with them. We have seem a few rare exceptions though.

However, there is no way to use the dual cam sway control of this system. Basically the pole tongue adapter will make it so that you won't use the chain hangers/chains or the dual cams.

  • Can Reese Chain Hangers # RP58305 Be Installed on a 3 Inch Wide Frame if Longer Bolts are Used
    Yes, the hardware that is included with the chain hangers, # RP58305, is only good for frames up to 2-1/4 inches wide. I have been told by Reese that you can use longer bolts to mount the hangers on the frame. This is provided that the larger frame is still within the proper mounting specs in the weight distribution system instructions. You mentioned mounting one on each side of the frame so it sounds like you want to use them for another purpose. If so please keep in mind that they have...
