What Jim Hensley Hitch Will Work For My RV?

In need of a hitch to pull your RV? The ProPride 3P® Jim Hensley Hitch is what's best for you. It is necessary that you pick the right hitch for your towing vehicle as well as the RV you have or want to have. Because a poor hitch decision can make towing hard and potentially harm your tow vehicle and the RV. Hopefully, this article will guide you in selecting a Jim Hensley Hitch that will fit your RV.

Why do you need a Jim Hensley Hitch on your RV

If you’re a person who wants the best, especially for something you've spent a lot of money on (like your trailer). The ProPride 3P® Jim Hensley Hitch is the best trailer hitch and will undoubtedly meet your expectations as the most advanced sway eliminating hitch on the market today.

The ProPride 3P® Jim Hensley hitch's Pivot Point Projection, also known as 3P technology, is its key feature. Due to passing trucks, strong winds, uneven roads, improperly loaded trailers, and even driver inputs into the towing vehicle, the 3P technology completely eliminates trailer sway.

On the other hand, friction-based trailer hitches can only lessen sway which can lead to a dangerous experience on the road. With a friction based solution the pivot point is still on the hitch ball, that is where the problem starts. A friction based solution will only go into effect, at speed, when sway starts to happen. In cases where the force of the sway exceeds the friction coefficient, the trailer will start to sway. Another major problem with friction-based trailer hitches is the noise they make. This is due to the noise and friction that results from grinding metal against metal.

A commanding lead in safety, the ProPride 3P® is heavy-duty, quiet, and reduces the stress of long hauls and travel time. Adverse driving conditions are eliminated, as is the agony of driving at the perfect speed while trying to stay in your lane. The paramount attribute in towing your RV is safety. Made in the USA, and backed by a lifetime warranty, finally, relax and enjoy the journey.

With the ProPride 3P® Jim Hensley hitch, controlling your trailer and operating your tow vehicle will be a lot simpler as a result.

Towing Acronyms

Here is a quick summary of the weights you need to be aware of in order to get the right ProPride 3P® Jim Hensley Hitch.

Unit Base Weight (UBW) is the dry weight of the base unit without options. Prior to having anything put inside of it, this is how much your RV weighed when it rolled off the assembly line.

Tongue Weight is the amount of weight a travel trailer’s tongue places on the hitch it is mounted to. Because the hitch is affixed to the tow vehicle's frame, going over the tongue weight limit will push the tow vehicle's rear down and reduce the amount of weight on the front axle. As a result, steering becomes challenging, traction may be lost, and stopping becomes dangerous.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is the manufacturer's recommended maximum loaded weight for your tow vehicle or RV. GVWR accounts for the combined weight of the vehicle, its cargo, and its occupants. Being over the GVWR poses significant risks as it makes the vehicle hard to control, slow down, or stop.

Max Towing Capacity is the max weight your engine can handle *DO NOT exceed this max weight*

RV Hitch Safety Advice

It's time to discuss some important hitch RV safety advice now that you are aware of the distinct parts and goods that make up an RV hitch.

  1. Before you get on the road, make sure everything is attached securely and correctly (especially your safety chains)
  2. To find out how much weight you can tow, consult the manufacturer of your vehicle, and never exceed this limit.
  3. Large trucks and strong winds should be avoided as they can cause your trailer to swing more when you're driving. Additionally, avoid driving too quickly because doing so might lead to excessive sway, which makes controlling your tow vehicle more challenging.
  4. Always leave a large gap between you and the car in front of you when stopping, as doing so takes significantly longer when you have a trailer hitched to the back.
  5. To expand your side views and reduce blind spots, consider purchasing some tow mirrors. These can be very handy while changing lanes.
