Towing can be a dangerous job. Not using the proper tongue weight can lead to poor handling on the road, vehicle swaying, and in the worst cases, a capsizing. This is especially dangerous for drivers towing RVs and other heavy items. So, if safety is your primary concern we recommend the Weigh Safe Hitches Trailer Hitch Ball Mount.
Why Tongue Weight Matters
If you're new to towing large items, then it's important to understand the tongue weight and how it affects your vehicle and your safety. The static force created by the trailer tongue pushing against the hitch ball is known as the tongue weight. Not using the correct tongue weight can result in the following dangers.
-If there is too much tongue weight, then the rear tires will face a lot of pressure from overload.
-If there is not enough tongue weight, then the trailer will wobble or swing from side to side, causing poor handling especially at high speeds.
-Difficulty going around bends in the road, safely.
-Reduced vehicle reaction time when drivers hit the brakes.
Weigh Safe trailer hitches are the only ones in the entire world which feature a scale built into the hitch to measure the tongue weight. A tongue weight of 10 to 15 percent is ideal as it eliminates all the safety hazards listed above. As one happy customer once explained, “Now you never have to guess if you're properly loaded!”
