Spring Prep List

Preparation is something that cannot be stressed enough, if you have any doubts about that, just ask Mr. Grasshopper. Booking campsites, de-winterizing the trailer and maintaining the hitch are all vital to a good camping season.

We have created a simple outline for you to get the most out of your Equal-i-zer® hitch for years to come.

1. Proper Installation and Weight Distribution:

If there has been any change involving the tow vehicle or trailer, make the needed adjustments to achieve maximum weight distribution.

2. L-brackets:

Ensure that no brake, electrical or gas lines are pinched and that the brackets are positioned between 27”-32”.

3. Angle Set Bolt:

Ensure that it is tightened firmly against the shank.

4. Lubricate the Hitch:

Place a small amount of Equal-i-zer High Performance Lubricant on the hitch sockets for superior performance.

5. Cosmetic Care:

Replace worn or faded stickers and apply a high-quality spray paint to the spring arms.

Now, we can’t guarantee that you will get the best camping spots or that your nature neighbor won’t be loud all night, but we are sure that wherever you are going, the Original Equal-i-zer Sway Control Hitch is the best protection for your journey.™
