Yes 2 5/16" ball.

If you aren't buying the ball from Equal-i-zer (Progress Manufacturing) double check the length of the threaded portion of the ball needed for the Equal-i-zer hitch. My Equal-i-zer 4-point needed a shorter threaded portion than many of the balls I found, but my hitch is over 10 years old so that may have changed.

I bought mine online, but I don't recall the site.

Thanks for the information. I guess I'll purchase the ball from Equal-i-zer as well to insure it all goes together.

If it's feasible, you should have your pad area plumbed to tie into your residential sewer line before you concrete. This way you have your own dump station

Yup, I already have two clean outs that I can easily tap into for the dump station. So I'm pretty good to go in that area.

When ordering your equalizer, keep in mind the tongue weight listed from Jayco will be without a battery or all of your stuff. Also include the weight of the hitch and any weight you will have in your truck bed behind the rear axel. In my case, the published tongue weight of my Jayflight 26RKS was 870, my scaled tongue weight with most of my stuff on board was around 1,100. Adding another 100 for the hitch, I purchased a 1,400 equalizer. A little oversized, but I figure I will be adding more crap each trip, so would rather have the hitch oversized than undersized.

Etrailer.com has some good prices on them and knowledgable folks if you want to talk it through with them.

OP, congrats on your new trailer! And lucky you that you have place to store the trailer... just trying to find a good place to my 28DSBH that I am picking up in Aug, but this is difficult task in our area.

Thank you so much for the valuable information. Being an RV and camping newbie, this definitely helps me big time. I often race my motorcycle at the track, so that will be in the back of my truck bed. I'll definitely take your advice and contact Etrailer to see which one fits my application best.
