The Shocker Hitch is a heavy duty unit that in most cases exceeds factory receiver hitch weight capacities, therefore it is imperative that you always read and follow the tongue and towing weight recommendations of the receiver hitch that is mounted on your tow vehicle.
Usage: The Air Shocker may also be used as a handy tongue weight scale for determining proper loading of trailer.
See chart below. Under normal circumstances tongue weight should be at least 10 percent of total towing weight.
Note: It is highly recommended that the hitch ball be greased to reduce wear and improve shocker action.
Do not exceed 100 psi in the air bag, as it may damage the air bag.
