3 Ways Your Hitch Might Be Letting You Down

Let’s face it…products aren’t always all they are cracked up to be. In the hitch industry, this rings even truer as very little innovation has happened over the last 4 decades. So why is it so important that innovation occurs more often? Well, because most industries are innovating, and that leaves any industry not doing so dangerously behind the times and dangerously incompatible with other products that might otherwise be great partner companies. Let’s look at 3 ways your hitch might be letting you down right now if you are still using old technology.

  1. Your tongue weight may be way off and you don’t even know it!
  2. Your up and down inertia may be shortening the life of your truck, trailer and quite frankly, your body!
  3. Your gas mileage may be suffering

Now the GEN-Y Hitch addresses each of these potential issues in a real way. If you are using one of our torsion suspension hitches, for example, you would be experiencing a 90% absorptionĀ of the up and down inertia that can be a key factor in limiting the lifespan of your trailer and truck parts. The up and down is what makes you feel like a freshly ground pile of hamburger too when you get done towing, and who wouldn’t love to not feel that discomfort any longer?

One of the less understood elements of the lack of innovation is the tongue weight measurement issue that many experiences. Our torsion suspension hitch has a built in tongue weight “estimator” that measures your tongue weight within about 10% accuracy and lets your know where you are in this crucial measurement. Too much tongue weight is a bad thing, and too little may simply mean you are towing less efficiently.

So in the long run, your hitch letting you down may be the fault of the industry, but letting it continue to let you down is on you! You should check us out art and #GetHitched with a #GenuineGenY today!
