This got me looking at their site again. Why do they charge $50 for a preinstalled hitch ball? Seems kinda pricey, so is there more to it than just simply a ball mounted on the hitch?

Not aware of the $50 for the hitch ball as the site shows them from about $22 - $30 depending on weight designed to pull. The balls are specifically made to fit the hitch head plus the shank dimensions are specific:
Ball diameter: 2-5/16"
Shank dimensions: 2-1/4" long x 1-1/4" diameter
Weight capacity: 14,000 lbs.
2-year warranty

The ball and installation was included in my hitch purchase price so ?

However, the torque foot lbs to secure the shank nut requires the use of a 3/4" drive torque wrench capable of 430 ft. lbs. ~ and a "good" ones costs $400 - $800 (a quality Snap-On wrench is near $1,000 https://store.snapon.com/US-Reading-...--P642562.aspx - not including a special 'thin wall' socket for installation.

So ..........that could be why

While I cannot comment on the Equalizer I had the Centerline on my first camper and it seemed to do what it was supposed to do. It was a bit noisy turning and backing up. On my toy hauler I switched to a Blue Ox - WD with sway control. I feel its easier to use and much cleaner.
