Default Pics of a Wieght Distribution set up on boat trailer

Does anyone have a picture of this. Do they make em for our boat trailers or are they for trailers with the A frame front at the ball.

Bigger question is what type of brake actuator do you have? Many WD units effect the proper function of a surge brake system. If you have an EOH system then you have a lot more options. Here is a link to one system that does work with a surge system.

For I-beam type trailer like our boat trailers you will need something like this...

Hope this helps!

I posted pics of my old setup in the past. Do a search. It MUST be set up well. It can be done with a surge brakes, but I highly recommend only doing it with an EoH brake setup.

You will require a Pole Tongue Adapter as referenced above.
