Ball Mounts

Ball mounts

The ball mount is designed to be inserted into the hitch.

There are different styles of ball mounts, so please refer to "Selecting the correct ball mount" chart for your specific ball mount.

Ball Mounts come in different lengths and are used in drop and rise positions.

When selecting a ball mount make sure to look at the weight rating, it should be equal to or larger than the hitch being used. For safe and comfortable towing the trailer should always be set up to tow on a level plane.

Sometimes a trailer's tongue is higher or lower than the ball mount on the vehicle. In this situation a ball mount with a "Rise" or a "Drop" is required to level the trailer.

By law, trailer lighting must be connected into the tow vehicle's wiring system to provide trailer running lights, turn signals and brake lights. This is accomplished by tapping into the tow vehicle's electrical harness to transfer power to the trailer wiring system. Connectors are used between the two to allow disengagement when not towing.
