weight distribution hitch

Ok ? question is if you use a weight distribution hitch for a front wheel drive , will it adversely effect the surge brake system like the one on Lil Snoozy ? seems to me that it would .

Bama from the Curt Hitch website FAQ section:


"Can you use weight distribution on trailers with surge brakes?

No. With Surge Trailer Brakes the deceleration difference between the vehicle and the trailer during braking creates a pressure, which activates the surge trailer brakes. With weight distribution, the vehicle and trailer act as one, causing the Surge Brake System not to function properly."
