    You can also add the weight of both truck axles from the 2nd ticket (9100) and subtract the weight of the truck from the first ticket (8560) and it comes out to 540 again.

    Looks like a trailer weight of 6920 with a tongue weight of 540.

    So now that I am at my desk I sat down and looked at it and didn't have to flip back and forth between pics and apps lol

    The trailer weight is 6,900# (15460-8560)

    The tongue weight is 620#...... I did it both the way you calculated it ((15460-8560)-6280) and the way I did (9180-8560) and they both came out the same lol

    Ya it actually handles great!! It is right at 9% which I would prefer 12% but I am going to put the lead in it this week and can manipulate it a little bit where needed.

    Am I looking at the ticket wrong? Looks like 6380 and not 6280. Either way itís close enough and if itís not swaying Iíd say youíre good to go.

    No way does a 2017 ram 1500 come with a 14000/1400# hitch. I call BS.

    A quick search of Ram factory hitch shows me this.



    You have to go by the tongue weight rating as boat trailers are not WDH compatible.

    5000# and 500# tongue.

    Donít feel bad,Ford did the same shit until model year 2019.

    Wakeboats push the limits of a half ton.

    Not trying to be an ass, but there are way to many trucks pulling wakeboats with improper hitch equipment. Failure it catastrophic and the responsibility of the owner. I also believe the insurance companies will deny claim based on improper equipment, again fault of owner.

    It's not a normal 1500. It's a longhorn Laramie and he confirmed it by my vin number.

    That 5000lb and 500lb says it's the bumper rating only. So are you thinking I need a different hitch. We pull our 31 ft travel trailer with this truck all last year.
