Does Tilting Weight Distribution Head Back Apply More Spring Bar Tension


Good afternoon: When tilting the weight distribution hitch ball away from the tow vehicle that will even the weight out more on the tow vehicle correct? If the tow vehicle has air bags should the hitch be in the normal position?


Helpful Expert Reply:

If you tilt the head of a weight distribution system like the # RP66083 back away from the front of the tow vehicle you will apply more spring bar tension which will effectively move more trailer tongue weight to the front axle of the tow vehicle.

When using a weight distribution system with a vehicle that has air bags you want to first inflate the air bags to the desired pressure and then set the WD system up.
