I use a Husky weight distribution hitch with sway control. This type of hitch accomplishes several things. First, it connects my tow vehicle (TV) to my trailer so that I can tow it. Second, it distributes the tongue weight of the trailer so that all the weight is not directly on the hitch. Finally, it provides some sort of sway control to make the trailer tow more steadily behind the TV, especially when being passed by high-speed trucks.

The image above is of the bracket that is still functional. Below are two pictures of the bracket I damaged.
Basically, I turned just a bit too sharply one day, and twisted the bracket.
I have now replaced the damaged bracket, and we're ready to head on down the road.
When you have an RV, you have to expect problems like these to arise.
