The reason I ask is that they might have included that in the cost of a WDH (if you bought it from them and they are installing it).

If not, and you are responsible for providing it, they range in price but you can get one for about $10 and spend more for chrome or a longer shank.

So I shouldn't need my dropdown then?? Or do you mean they will replace my existing ball?

By drop down, I take it you mean the shank? It will come with a shank so you don't use anything you have today. And there are different adjustable shanks to fit various combinations of trucks and TTs.

Here's what the 1,000/10,000lbs Equal-i-zer hitch comes with if you buy online: hitch head, 1 standard shank, 2 sway controls brackets, 2 spring arms, 1 snap up lever and the hardware.

This is what it will look like when assembled...


The hitch ball is not included when you typically order it online (it needs to be a 2-5/16" ball with a 1-1/4" diameter threaded shank no longer than 2-3/8").

The dealer usually supplies the ball (probably for a charge) when they install it.

You should not have to supply it if you are buying from the dealer and they are installing. Unless of course they told you to supply it but I can't see why they would do that - too much room for error and they want to be able to set up and get you on the road.

I hope this helps.

I suggest you call the dealer and verify this information. 10 to 1 the dealer will supply the right ball since you are buying from them and they are installing.

That looks intimidating...I'm sure they will have me comfortable with it by the time I leave. The dealer so far has been on there game except for price (found out after comitting to them) I was told they will actually test drive with me when the pdi is complete with the trailer in tow.

That's a great idea (the test drive with the dealer).

I know it looks intimidating so to help you become less intimidated, I've attached the manual for your reading pleasure.

Actually, I highly recommend you take some time to read through it.

This will help you immensely to understand the hitch when you go through the PDI and, more importantly, when you are on your own.

You will need to adjust it and maintain it. Might as well get comfortable with it now.

Also, feel free to post any questions. We've all been there.

I have a 2009 23SS which I pull with a 2004 Toyota Tundra with a 4.7 liter V8. This combination has serve me well and the trailer tows with little effort. In fact, last year we drove over 8K miles touring the country from east coast to west coast with no problems whatsoever.

Ok on another thought.... Got it home friday and set up was piece of cake. We have the canvas material on the sides of the bed ends. It appears we had rain puddle at bottom where the zipper seam is, or at least i think it puddled because the bed which was touching the canvas was soaked.. Any thoughts or has anyone put some type of repellant on the canvas windows?? Thanks in advance
