Weigh Safe Ball Mount with Scale Operation and Scale Replacement if Necessary


2015 Ram 2500 6.4 Hemi. This question goes for all vehicles. When riding on rough roads or hitting bumps and pot holes, will the scale piston etc... wear out quickly? Also, will it stay accurate and if it does wear quickly can the scale be replaced by owner or does one have to buy a whole new one. Thanks

On the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount w/ Built-In Scale - 2-1/2" Hitch - 8" Drop, 9" Rise # WS8-25 you asked about the built in scale will move slightly with every bump in the road as the weight shifts from the axles to the tongue and back the other way. The scale is incredibly well built and I have yet to hear of one wearing out because it consists of a hydraulic piston and a bed of oil. The ball mount has a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer and the scale gauge has a 1 year warranty.

If it were to fail, the owner would simply need the Replacement Hitch Ball Platform w/ Built-in Scale for Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mounts for 2-1/2" Hitch # WS01-5. It is an easy swap out part.
