Expert Reply:

You will want the Curt TruTrack Weight Distribution System w/ Sway Control # C17499 for your 2018 Forest River Wildwood M-171RBXL. This system is rated for tongue weights of 500-800lbs with a maximum trailer weight of 8,000lbs.

For your current tongue weight of 521lbs and adding 40lbs for the 2-20lb propane cylinders, 50lbs for the battery and box will put you at 611lbs. This leaves you with 189lbs of additional gear on the front of your Wildwood. You do not need to include the weight distribution hitch weight in your calculation. The GVWR on your Wildwood is 7,500lbs which also falls into the maximum weight rating.

You will need a 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40030 to complete the weight distribution system and attach to your Wildwood.
