Do you have a pic of what part exactly sheared off? The actual bottom of the L bracket or the bolted upper area that holds the L bracket on?
The only failure issues I have heard on Equalizer dealt with high tongue weights, 1200# areas and in some cases the grade 5 hitch head bolts sheared off. Do not know if it was a bad bolt situation or an over loading that caused it. The TT owner did not have a scaled tongue weight. He did replace them with grade 8 bolts though.
We all learn something for each other here on our successes and problems. Trying to figure out what exact part on yours broke. Those L brackets are like 1/2 in steel.
See here on page 4 under Sway Control Bracket Assembly http://www.equalizerhitch.com/pdf/eq...structions.pdf
is it part:
Part no. 15 90-02-5100 L-Bracket that broke
Part no. 14 90-04-9236 5/8” Set Screw that sheared off
Which weight rating hitch so you have? The 600 # hitch or the 1,000# tongue weight hitch?
Also on the bottom of page 4, it lists the limited lifetime warranty.
PS Glad it happened near home and not out on the road. Equal-I-zer is a good brand and has been reported many times to be very help full.
