Weight distribution is a huge part of towing because failure to have an even distribution of weight can cause swaying which can cause the trailer or the vehicle to lose control. The purpose of these systems is to prevent sway and to get the trailer completely level with the chassis of the vehicle.

This area is essential because it controls the tongue weight and overall distribution of weight on either side of the trailers axle. For example, if the front of the trailer is sagging down low, more weight will be pushed on the tongue and hitch than normal because of gravity.

Using a system that is rated past the maximum or below the minimum ratings will be just as bad as not using a weight distribution system at all. Continue Reading -->
