They are the #58392 brackets. I'll post some actual pictures when I receive them. I'm glad I called... I had these in my cart at etrailer.com. Reese saved me $110!

Yep, that is the HD model number that has been around awhile and is the same one I purchased years ago.

Look forward to your pic to see if they have upgraded the design from the #58392 I have.

Heck, I'm bending the reinforced bracket on my drivers side with every trip out. I have the 1500lb straightline

It is bending just below the reinforcement. It is screwed to the frame with two large sheet metal screws. The top clamping bolt ends up being bent the same as you folks describe.

What trailer are you pulling? I'm slightly concerned about this as well, but I guess I'll have to try it out and see how it works.

Any chance you can post a couple side view pics of your WDH with the TV/TT hitched up?

There are numerous possible causes, but the WDH set-up/adjustment is the first that needs to be ruled out (assuming that the snap-up bracket is properly mounted https://www.jaycoowners.com/showthread.php?t=2578).

It is not the tongue weight. The hitch is "supposed" to be designed to handle that.

Housedad,

I'm not questioning the WDH weight "rating" in your situation, just ruling out any set-up/adjustment possibilities to narrow down a possible root cause. My brother in-law has a 2009 Jayco 322FKS and he hasn't had any issues with his Straight-Line and/or snap-up brackets..., so I'm very curious what is different about your TV/TT set-up that would be causing a bent bracket on "every trip out".

I've run into situations with Straight-Line WDH set-ups where something as simple as the HP Dual Cam chain Hanger Bracket was mounted incorrectly at the cam lug, thus causing the snap-up bracket to bend under heavy tongue weights.

Also, depending if the TT coupler is welded on the top or bottom of the TT A-frame can create some binding issues with some WDH set-ups. Your coupler is welded on the bottom (like mine), which with the Straight-Line WDH is normally a better condition with trunnion style bars. Folks with the standard WDH (no Dual Cam) have the dynamics of the chain moving with the spring bars in TV turns, thus an incorrect set-up/adjustment can destroy a snap-up bracket over time.

Again, just throwing ideas out there, hate to hear anyone having these types of problems.

Bob

I have also bent the heavy duty bracket on the drivers side. Sent pictures to Reese. Hitch was set up correctly, they sent me new brackets and suggested that I bolt them to the frame. I used heavy sheet metal screws & I am going to tack weld the brackets.

Ernie,

Mine have been bolted to the frame as well for years, no problems thus far with my 1,200lb tongue weight. There are so many variables that can contribute to issues with the snap-up bracket these days, to many different TV/TT combinations.

I ran into one situation with a guy that the root cause was the inside angle of his particular A-frame was off compared to the other side. This caused the Dual Cam frame bracket on one side to be off center (in relation to the spring bar) just enough that the spring bar would bind over the cam surface in an aggressive TV turn......, thus bending the snap-up bracket.

On another TV/TT application we found that the spring bar knuckle (at the ball mount) was coming into contact with the lower leading edge of the A-frame tube causing the snap-up bracket to twist right off the top of the A-frame. This was a top mount ball coupler.

The WDH can look just fine with the TV/TT in a straight line, but simulate a TV turn and the whole picture changes.

Bob
