Review of Reese Accessories and Parts RP63971


Today were going to take a look at the Reese Weight Distribution Shank number RP63971. This shank is designed for use with either round bar or trunnion bar weight distribution systems. It provides a drop only so turning it upside down will not create a rise. You need to use this only as a drop shank. It is finished with a black powder coat. It fits 2-inch trailer hitch receivers.

Has a tongue weight of 1,500 pounds. The holes are of an inch in diameter and are 1 inch apart on center. For a round bar system the distance from the center of the ball hole as it would be when its attached to the weight distribution system, to the center of the hitch pin hole is 15 inches, and the drop would be 6 inches from the top of the shank. For a trunnion bar system, the distance from the center of the ball hole as its attached to the weight distribution system, to the hitch pin here is 14 3/8 of an inch. The drop would be 4 of an inch again from the top of the shank.

The shank bar length is 14 inches. The shank bar height from the top of the shank to the bottom from here to here is 10 7/8 of an inch, and it does come with a limited lifetime warranty. Now were going to bring out our 2 inch trailer hitch receiver demonstrator to show you how you would attach this. This does have a little bit of heft to it. It comes in at 22 pounds so keep that in mind whenever youre using it.

It is a little bit on the heavy side. You would just line up the holes there. You would use your pin and clip. This is not included with the product, but you can get it right here at etrailer.com part number pc3. You just slide that through like that and then just clip that off, and youre good to go.

That should about do it for the Reese Weight Distribution Shank number RP63971.
