TRAILER MOUNT AIR HITCH
The Shockerhitch Surge hitch is very unique

Shocker Surge HItch Saves Fuel
By using a gooseneck Surge Hitch, you may save as much as one mile per gallon. When we developed the Surge Hitch our intention was to give a smoother ride, period. We perfected that and never considered the other benefits.
Customers using the Surge hitch started calling with reports of better
fuel mileage. Claims of up to a mile per gallon are pretty normal. The
question is why? Trucks manufactured over the past ten years or more
have a very sophisticated on board computer. The computer senses a jerk
or load increase and gives the engine more fuel. This process happens
many times in a second. By reducing the jerks, the computer will give
the engine less fuel. The other contributing factor is cruise control.
If your trailer bucks the cruise control will increase speed. When the
buck stops, the cruise control reduces speed. This sets up a cycle of
accelerating and decelerating, again using more fuel. A Shocker Surge
Hitch can reduce this effect and give you a much smoother ride.
| Gooseneck Surge Hitch Testimonials
Bob, I just wanted to let you know that I got the hitch and we have already tried it out. First, I rode in the back of the trailer around a country block with an ordinary hitch and then the same block with your hitch. The comparison is very impressive, so impressive that I forwarded my evaluation to a group of other horse enthusiiasts. You may hear from some of them.
All i can say is WOW, took 15 minutes to install or less did test run with a 30ft goose next and could tell right away a huge different, The following morning headed out for a GA running empty through the mountains 7 hours could hardly tell trailer was back there. It did what you said it would do. Totally impressed. I loaded 15000 lbs of hay and headed back through the mountain's the first few miles a little rough running I pulled over used a bicycle pump and put 35 lbs of air in system. never looked back smooth as could be.
Again WOW and GREAT>
Thank you, my back thanks you, and so does my wife and dog, who slept the whole trip.
"I purchased the Shocker Gooseneck Hitch several months ago. To be quite honest, the company that installed the hitch told me to do just the opposite of what the manufacter states here on the website. So I had too much air loaded. Holy cow, it beat me up pretty bad. I called and spoke to Bob and he gave me proper instructions. Now I am the HAPPIEST person ever and so are my horses!!!! I drive a 1-ton Dodge and we all know how ruff they can be and pull a 43ft LQ trailer. Now we are riding on air and my pickup is better riding hooked up to my trailer than when it isn't!!!Thank You so much Bob for all your help and patience and the return call to see how it was going. I will recomend your product to anyone!!! "

"Just installed one of your gooseneck surge hitches, and we have never had such a smooth easy ride from our 3-horse LQ on a '08 Tundra! One of the best built and engineered pieces of equipment I have seen! Very happy and satisfied."
"We are a distributor for compact hay equipment and we have to deliver
nation wide. I own a Dodge 3500 and a 29 ft Gooseneck HYD dove tail
trailer. My wife went with me to up state NY to make some deliveries and
on our way back with an empty trailer, we could not stand the ride.
When I arrived at my home in Texas I felt like I had been playing
football all day long. I had to do something to get rid of the high
amplitude low frequency bounce that makes traveling so miserable. I
started searching the internet for a new trailer, air ride suspension
etc. then I ran into the Shocker hitch. I called the staff at Shocker
hitch and orderd a hitch for our trailer. Once I received the hitch, I
spoke to the staff at shocker hitch and they gave me easy detailed
instructions to get the most out of my hitch. After installation, I
found a noticeable decrease in bounce just pulling the trailer around my
facility. My last trip to MI. and back was a pleasure. Here is what I
noticed...High amplitude low frequency bounce decreased 80%, Fuel
economy increase due to less shock loads on truck drive train. Cargo
straps on trailer do not have to be re tightend. Can travel greater
distanced in 12 hrs due to less body fatique. I wish to praise the guys
at Shocker hitch for job well done. Fellas, you have engineered a great

"Just wanted to tell about my experience with the Gooseneck Surge
Hitch. I pull a 33' Tandem Axle Gooseneck with 15000# axles on it,
hydraulic beaver tail, and hydraulic jacks. This is a heavy trailer
pulling heavy loads. The shock in the 1 Ton PU that I pull with was so
bad you could not stand to ride in it. I searched the internet and found
several quote "Shocker Hitches". After doing some research I decided on
the Shocker Hitch. When I got the hitch, we had the trailer loaded up
for a delivery. First we took it down a road that is very rough 5 miles
from us. Very tough ride! We brought the trailer back to the shop and
installed the Shocker Hitch, applying what we thought was the right
amount of air. Took it down the same road and sat in the bed of the
truck to watch the action of the hitch. The ride was already smoother,
but realized we had too much air in it. After a mile, I released some
air out of the air bag, and couldn't believe how much smoother it was.
We find that if you apply the trailer brakes on startup and pull the
truck forward hard, it will bottom out when it is set "right". I am very
happy with my purchase."
