Great source to purchase from. I placed my order over the internet. I received the items within a few days of my order via UPS. This is the third or forth item I've ordered from etrailer.com. I've been very satisfied with the wide variety of accessories they offer and their shipping. I highly recommend using etrailer.com as a source to purchase your RV accessories. 5109

Originally my trailer company sold me the 10" version of this item costing a bit more than this 12" version. I am trying it out due to the fact that I have gone through 3 10" versions and believe the additional diameter will assist in lessening the disc wear. Quick delivery and Item as expected. 109163

Product shipped within hours and was received really quick. The packaging on the product was great and if anything overkill for a small item. So impressed already ordered a second shipment of items from them. Would order again from this company. 108478

It installed in a snap, seriously. Just remove it from the package and snap onto the pin. It's that easy. As for how it performs, it makes locking the pin into the hitch jaw much smoother and it prevents marring the hitch head and pin box.28875

I bought this as a backup, most stores don't seem to stock the 12" diameter. I currently only have 1,000 miles on the plate i'm using, my pin weight is 3900#, it looks like it'll last a long time. Don't forget to lube your pin to jaw area, you just don't need to lube the surface where this plate sits.24637

The lube plate arrived within a couple of days after ordering. It slipped right over the 5th wheel hitch and snapped into place. I'm so happy that there will be no more grease stains applied to my clothing every time I accidentally rub up against the pin or 5th wheel plate. Great product!15594

Reese 12" lube plate. I have used the Reese lube plate before on previously owned 5th wheels and had great sucess. The lube plate is easy to install and eliminates the mess associated with greasing the top of the wheel wheel hitch.4261

  • Lube Plate Size for 15,000 LB 5th Wheel Hitch
  • For your fifth-wheel hitch you will need the 10 inch Fifth-Wheel Lube Plate, item # 83002. The 12 inch Lube Plate, item # RP83001, is for the larger hitches and the Reese Signature Series hitch.

  • Installing and Using a Lube Plate in Place of Grease on Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Using a lube plate is very simple. Simply slide it over the king pin on the trailer before hitching up. The lube plate prevents metal to metal contact of the king pin on the head unit of the fifth wheel hitch making hitching up easier. No grease is required if you are using a lube plate. The 12 inch diameter plate is intended for use with 20K hitches or Reese Elite or Signature Series Fifth Wheel hitches. If your hitch is not an Elite or Signature Series and has a capacity less than 20K, a 10

  • What Size Fifth-Wheel Lube Plate is Needed for a B and W Companion Hitch
  • The proper size Lube plate for use with the B and W Companion hitch is a 10 inch diameter lube plate. We carry two lube plates this size. The Reese Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 inch Diameter, item # RP83002, and the Curt 10 inch Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate, item # 16721, will both work with your Companion hitch nicely.

  • Which Reese Lube Plate for 16K 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Generally speaking, the higher the hitch capacity, the larger the 5th wheel head would be. The 12 inch diameter lube plate is designed for hitches with the larger head, like 18, 20 and 22K capacity hitches. The only reason the larger lube plate is not recommended for a 16K hitch is that the plate would likely extend beyond the skid plate, which would make it susceptible to breakage. I would recommend using the 10 inch diameter plate, part # RP83002. The 10 inch diameter plate would better fit

  • Which Lube Plate Fits a Reese Pro Series 15K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • For the 15K Pro Series 5th wheel hitches you would need to use lube plate # RP83002 which is the smaller 10 inch diameter lube plate. The 12 inch Lube Plate, # RP83001, is for the larger hitches and the Reese Elite/Signature Series hitches.

  • What Size Lube Plate for B and W Patriot 16K 5th Wheel Hitch
  • We offer both 10-inch and 12-inch fifth wheel lube plates. The 10-inch diameter is part # RP83002 and the 12-inch is part # RP83001. My contact at B and W indicated either size is acceptable. The best way to check for ideal fit is to measure out from the bottom center of the king pin half the plate diameters (5 and 6 inches). These are the points where the edges of the 10-inch and 12-inch plates will reach when fitted to the king pin. If the edges of the 12-inch plate will stick out beyon
