Review of Reese Accessories and Parts RP26003


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for a two inch ball mount. This bracket provides the attachment point for friction-style sway-control systems. It is going to be sold separately, Sway-Controls not included. The one that we'd recommend is going to be RPtwo6660. It can be found right here at etrailer.com. Simply allows for use of friction sway-control without having a weight distribution systems. This unit mount to your class three or class four, two inch by two inch ball mount.

It's got the nice square cut out that rest on the ball platform. The hitch ball is what holds the bracket in place. You would place this onto the mount, place your hitch ball through, and On the bottom side of your mount you would secure the hitch ball with a standard lock washer and nut that comes with a hitch ball. Hitch ball's not included either. If you're in need of one you can find them here at etrailer.com. The unit constructed of a sturdy steel construction.

Nice solid steel design. It's going to measure 3/8 of an inch thick, and it's going to have a black powder-coated finish, to resist rust and corrosion. Again it is designed for class three or class four, two inch by two inch ball mounts. The ball mount must be narrower than this gap right here, in order for it to fit. It needs to be narrower than the cutout. That cutout's going to be about two and 5/8 of an inch, so the ball mount platform must be narrower than two 5/8 of an inch to fit the cutout.

The ball hole diameter for a hitch ball, that's going to give us a diameter of one inch. Again, the plate thickness is 3/8 of an inch. If you take a measurement from the center of this hole, to the center of the sway ball hole, just going straight across. You can see that that's going to be separated on center by 5 and a half inches. If we take a straight line measurement, it's going to be more like five and 3/8 of an inch. The unit's also covered with a limited lifetime warranty.

It's going to come with your installation instructions. I do want to go ahead and show you how it would fit on a mount. Basically this plate would fit directly over the ball mount platform. You'd lineup the holes of the bracket with the hole in the ball mount platform and then secure it again by installing the hitch ball. That's going to do for today's look at the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for two inch ball mounts.
