    Setting Shocker Air Pressure for Trailer Tongue Mount Coupler

    To Set Air

    Load trailer the way it will be towed. Inflate airbag on Shocker Air Trailer Tongue Mount hitch. CAUTION: Keep hands and clothing away from moving parts of hitch to avoid pinching and injury. As air pressure increases, the unit will rotate lifting the hitch and trailer tongue. Install air until green bushing has 1/4″ clearance from the red frame. Always inflate air bag to set the Shocker Hitch, never deflate air bag to set Shocker Hitch, unsatisfactory results may occur. When using Equalizer/ Weight Distribution Hitch: Follow directions above, then hook up equalizer bars, and continue inflating air bag until 1/4″ clearance on bump stops is achieved. Note: When towing heavy trailers or trailers with high wind resistance it may be necessary to increase air pressure in the Shocker. Usage: Under normal circumstances, tongue weight should be at least 10 percent of the total towing weight. NOTE: IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT THE HITCH BALL BE GREASED TO REDUCE WEAR AND IMPROVE SHOCKER ACTION. Maximum Pressure: Do not exceed 100 psi in the air bag, as it may damage the air bag.

    Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the air trailer tongue mount tow rating? The rating is 20,000 lbs GTW & 2,000 lbs Tongue Weight with the 20,000 lb GTW cast coupler for 2-5/16″ ball or 20,000 lb pintle ring. The 12K air trailer tongue is rated at 12,000 lbs GTW. It must have a 12,000 lbs GTW coupler to the rating to apply.

    How long will the airbag last? Our airbags are an industrial bag and will last for years and years. They are similar to truck airbags but have been beefed up internally for our towing applications.

    Will this work with a W-D Hitch? Yes it will.

    How strong is the center pivot bolt?  The main pivot bolt with grease zerk, or center pivot bolt, used in the Tongue Mount Shocker air coupler, is a custom made 1 inch diameter 1045 medium carbon steel bolt. Strategically heat treated to prevent wear and includes a machined grease passage for easy lubrication and maintenance. It should be noted that the yield strength of the 1″ pivot bolt exceeds the two 5/8″ bolts used to hold the typical ball coupler on the average vertical channel adapter.

    Safety Notice: The Shocker Hitch is a heavy duty unit that in most cases exceeds factory receiver hitch weight capacities, therefore it is imperative that you always read and follow the tongue and towing weight recommendations of the receiver hitch that is mounted on your tow vehicle, your tow vehicle rating, trailer rating and coupler rating.

    How much air do I put in the air trailer tongue mount? With your trailer hooked up to the tow vehicle, and loads positioned for transport, air up shocker air tongue until green bushing has 1/4″ clearance from the red frame. See install guide.

    How does it install? Simple bolt on installation in minutes. See install guide.

    How long will it hold air? This is a sealed system that will hold air for weeks or months. If you haul the same trailer with the same load weight, it should be good for quite some time.

    How do I know the Shocker Air trailer tongue mount with fit my trailer? We have 2 mounting options.  Square plate mount:  Simply bolts in place of existing coupler and has a 4-1/2″ square bolt pattern. Vertical channel mount: Simply bolts in place with existing trailer vertical channel for typical trailer couplers.  We do offer a weld on channel adaptor for your trailer tongue that can also be used if you don’t have one on your trailer.

    Does this affect my trailers ground clearance? No, the air bag is above the trailer tongue for maximum ground clearance

    How often do I grease it? The grease does not just lube the pivot; it also keeps water and dirt out. You cannot over grease it, once every few months should do it.

    Does the Shocker air trailer tongue limited my tailgate with hooked up to the trailer? Maybe. It depends on your vehicles ball mount length. You can still open your tailgate, but it may rest on your air bag.

    How does the air ride trailer tongue coupler work? The air shocker is like a teeter totter. One end is an air bag, a pivot in the middle, and a ball at the other end. This gives a “pillow” effect at the ball end.

    How much does an Shocker Air trailer tongue mount weigh? The Receiver Air Shocker weighs 60-70 pounds depending on model.
