Installing WD Hitch - quick question

Texas Sooner

Recommended Posts

I am installing a Husky WD hitch and the hitch ball is supposed to be 1" above the coupler socket. I've gotten it to where it's 1.5" above the coupler socket but if I try to move it to a lower hole on the shank it will drop it down to where it's only .5" above the coupler socket. Since I can't get it exactly to the 1" mark is it better to be 1/2 inch higher or a 1/2 inch lower than the 1 inch mark?

There are ways to get around your dilemma as explained in these links. It is better for the trailer to be 1" lower than level in front than 1" high.

This is a written explanation.


Some very good and informative information there - thanks!
