Measuring to Find the Correct Ball Mount Rise and Drop


I recently purchased a Draw-Tite Class III trailer hitch, part # 41116 for my 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis. I need to order the receiver. The recommended ball mount, part # 80228 has a 2-3/4 inch rise. I measured from the ground to the top inside of the hitch and then measured from the ground to the inside of the trailer where the ball would hit and came up with a difference of 4-1/2 inches. What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

When you measure for a ballmount, you will want to measure from the ground up to the flat bottom part of your coupler, not inside of it. The 2-3/4 inch rise provided by the recommended ball mount would work just fine for you. That part number has been discontinued, but # EBMK4 will be a fit.
