What is Tongue Weight?

Tongue weight, also known as TW, is the downward pressure on the hitch ball that is caused by the trailer tongue. It's important to get the tongue weight just right, as an incorrect measurement can lead to a risky towing experience. Keep in mind that the back axle acts as a fulcrum and the hitch ball is like the end of a lever - if you have too much tongue weight, it can push down on the tow vehicle's rear axle and lift the front, causing problems for the tow vehicle. On the other hand, if the weight is too heavy towards the rear of the trailer, it can cause a lift on the ball. That's where the ProPride 3P® Jim Hensley Hitch comes in - it's designed to help you get the tongue weight just right, ensuring a safe and smooth towing experience.

Proper Tongue Weight

When towing a trailer with a ball-mounted hitch, it's important to make sure the tongue weight is correct. A good rule of thumb is to use 10-15% of the trailer's gross towing weight as the tongue weight. If you're not sure what your trailer's net weight is, it's a good idea to measure it using a tongue scale. This can be especially helpful if you're loading your trailer with a lot of extra items and want to ensure that you have an accurate weight calculation. Remember, safety is key when it comes to towing a trailer, so it's important to make sure you have the accurate tongue weight.
