When you are pulling a trailer it is important to know that the tongue weight is 10 to 15 percent of any trailer load.

This means that the weight which is pushing down on your hitch ball by the trailer stays in between 10 to 15 percent of your trailer weight.

If you have any more weight or significantly less weight this can case the trailer to pull up or to push down on the truck’s rear axle. This pushing or pulling can significantly reduce handling of your vehicle. This means there is less stability while driving and your braking is unsound. Your rig is now susceptible to an accident.

To keep the weight on the ball of your hitch to stay within the ten to fifteen percent range, you should distribute the load. A good rule to follow is to put 60 percent of your load’s weight in front of the trailer’s axle with 40 percent sitting in the back of the axle.
