        Frequently Asked Questions

        Q: How much air do I put in?  A: With your trailer hooked up to the tow vehicle, and loads positioned for transport, air up shocker until main frame rotates and lightly compresses top bushing.
        Q: Where do I get the air?  A: The air shocker requires a very small volume of air (less than a volleyball) You can use an air hose from a shop or gas station, tank or 12 volt pump or my favorite, a foot pump (sold for less than $12.00 at retail stores)
        Q: How long will it hold air?  A: This is a sealed system that will hold air for weeks or months. If you haul the same trailer with the same load weight, it should be good for quite some time.
        Q: How do I know if it will fit my truck?  A: We have made sure that the air shocker will fit into Ford, Chevy, Dodge and SUV’s. There are some clearance issues with the Chevy Envoy, Ford Explorer and some service body vehicles where the body extends below the receiver tube. In most of these situations the standard shocker will fit.
        Q: How far below my pickup does the air shocker hang?  A: Four and one half inches below bottom of receiver tube.
        Q: How often do I grease it?  A: The grease does not just lube the pivot; it also keeps water and dirt out. You cannot over grease it, once every few months should do it.
        Note: It is important the hitch ball also be greased to reduce wear and improve function.
        Q: Does this work like an equalizer hitch?  A: No
        Q: How does it work?  A: The air shocker is like a teeter totter. One end is an air bag, a pivot in the middle, and a ball at the other end. This gives a “pillow” effect at the ball end.
        Q: Should I tighten up the top jam nut on the shocker?  A: No. The air shocker needs at least one half inch of play to work properly.
        Q: How much does the Air Shocker weigh?  A: The Air Shocker weighs 40 pounds.

        Specifications

        When used properly these products will make noticeable improvements in your trailer towing quality. Giving both truck and trailer a smoother ride with less trailer fatigue and breakage. Maximum tow weights for Shocker and Air Shocker
        Note: Always use a good hitch ball with the proper recommended tow weight.  

        Shocker w/standard ball mount (1 1/4" hole size) 1,200 tongue weight 12,000 tow weight
        Shocker w/drop ball mount (1 1/4" hole size) 1,200 tongue weight 12,000 tow weight
        Shocker w/raised ball mount 800 tongue weight 8,000 tow weight
        Shocker w/pintle hook 1,200 tongue weight 10,000 tow weight



        Safety Notice:  
        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.  

        Maximum Pressure:
        Do not exceed 100 psi in the air bag, as it may damage the air bag.  
        Note:  If it takes more than 60 psi to compress top bushing this indicates you have more than 1200 lbs of tongue weight.

        Would be Better If it were another 4 inches away from the receiver. That would make going around sharp corners without hitting the vehicle or trailer

        I have seen nothing that does the job like this one. I have seen many different kinds of hitches but this one, the moment I saw it, I knew, whatever the price, I would be investing into it. Great hitch for all ball hitch trailers!

        I haul large diesel engines in south Louisiana where a lot of the roads are very rough and this hitch helps out tremendously. it also works great with no load on trailer.
        The best tow hitch I have ever used.

        This hitch takes the jerking out of towing and I'm telling you if you pull a trailer for a long distance this is a must have also people always ask me where I got it from because it is a real eye catcher.
