Pole Tongue Adapter For Using A Weight Distribution and Sway Hitch With a Boat Trailer Surge Brakes


Will this adapter work with a boat trailer that has surge breaks?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Blue Ox Pole Tongue Weight Distributing Hitch Adapter # BXW4023 can be used to install a weight distribution system on your boat trailer that has surge brakes.

You will need to make sure that the weight distribution system that you are looking at is compatible with surge brakes and attaches to the trailer frame with over the frame style brackets. A system like the Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW0550 has these brackets and is compatible with a surge brake coupler.

If you are looking at a weight distribution like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET it requires a different Pole-Tongue Adapter # EQ95-01-5950.

If you need help selecting the correct weight distribution hitch system for your boat trailer, let me know the tongue weight and maximum weight of the boat and trailer.
