To Set Air: Hook up trailer using properly selected ball adaptor and height adjustment in order to a level trailer when loaded. Next, inflate the air bag. As air pressure increases, the unit will rotate lifting the hitch point. Install enough air to slightly compress top bushing or until bump stop clearance is approximately 1/8″.

Additional Set Up Notes:

  • When towing heavy trailers or trailers with high wind resistance it may be necessary to increase air pressure in the Shocker.
  • It is highly recommended that the hitch ball be greased to reduce wear and improve shocker action.

Maximum Air Pressure: Do not exceed 100 psi in the air bag, as it may damage the air bag.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

How much air do I put in the Receiver Mount hitch?
With your trailer hooked up to the tow vehicle, and loads positioned for transport, air up shocker until main frame rotates and lightly compresses top bushing (about 1/8″ of squeeze or pinch in the bushing).

What the best way to hook up a pintle ring & hook?  Please see this video

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 receiver hitch will fit my truck?
We have made sure that the receiver air shocker will fit into most Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Toyota and SUV’s. There are some clearance issues with the Chevy Envoy, Ford Explorer, some imports and service body vehicles where the body extends below the receiver tube. The Shocker Air receiver hitch is available in a 2″, 2 1/2″ & 3″ shank. Please indicated which vehicle you intend to use the hitch with, make/model/year and we will attempt to get you a great fitting hitch.

How far below my pickup does the receiver air shocker hang?
Five inches below bottom of receiver tube.

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 receiver air hitch work like or with an equalizer hitch?

How does the Receiver hitch work?
The Receiver 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.

Should I tighten up the top jam nut on the receiver shocker?
No. The air shocker needs at least one half inch of play to work properly.

How much does an Shocker Air bag receiver hitch weigh?
The Receiver Air Shocker weighs 40 pounds
