Clossan 1, I would check any maximum hitch ratings on your trailer. Mine is located on the trailer near the front of my 228. It states not to use a wd hitch over 10,000 pds. I purchased the 10,000 in case i get a larger trailer in the future. The dealer and Equalizer only said that i might make for a stiffer ride over the 6,000 pd. It seems to ride smooth enough for me possibly because i don't have a heavy duty suspention on my truck. My trailer ways 4,600 pds loaded

I agree, the incorrect WDH weight rating for the X19H.

If you have a "standard" WDH and depending on the brand (Reese, DrawTite, etc.), you might be able to change out the spring bars to a lower rating, as long as the spring bars are compatible to the standard WDH ball mount in question..., thus avoiding the cost of a totally new WDH.

If your WDH is an "Equal-i-zer" brand, the spring bars are not interchangeable.

13000 lb WDH is too much for a 19H. You should check with the brand WDH you have. You might be able to purchase new trunion bars and keep everything else the same. You may also have an issue with elevation too.
