  • Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Installation Kit for 2009 Ford F-250
  • Yes, the Reese Elite (also called Signature Series) 5th wheel hitches are compatible with the Ford under-bed rail installation kit # RP30073. This kit is a correct fit for your 2009 Ford Super Duty long-bed pickup. An installation video is linked for you. If you also need a 5th wheel wiring harness for the truck bed you can use part # PK11893-11932 from Pollak, which simply plugs in at your bumper-mounted trailer socket to give you a second 7-way in the bed. Both connectors remain active.

  • What Is Weight Capacity for Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch For 2004 Ford F-350
  • The cargo capacity of the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch, part # 65022 is 500-lbs. In the installation instructions it states that the capacity is 500-lbs OR the vehicle front gross axle rating. I recommend you check your owner's manual or with your dealership to make sure you do not exceed the cargo carrying capacity of your truck. Keep in mind also that carrying a motorcycle on the front of your truck will reduce the air flow to your radiator and the motorcycle may block your headlights....

  • Dimensions Used for Placing Fifth Wheel Hitch in Bed of 2002 Ford Super Duty Long Bed
  • When you install a fifth wheel rail kit like the custom kit part # RP50082-58 in the bed of your 2002 Ford Super Duty long bed the king pin center will be approximately 52-5/16 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed. The rear edge of the rear rail will be placed 32-1/4 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed as well. Check out the picture I attached that shows these two dimensions.

  • Is there a Difference Between B and W Companion Hitch BWRVK3500 and BWRVK35
  • The two part numbers you mentioned would be representative of the same thing. The bwrvk35 isn't a standard B and W part number so the part # BWRVK3500-5W would be what you are looking for which is a 20k B and W Companion Slider hitch. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Rim Clamps and Wheel Bolts for 5 Spoke Utility Hub
  • By 'blocks', I'm assuming you're speaking of rim clamps, which we sell individually as part # 15-2. The 5 spoke utility rims we offer, part # 8-174-5UC3 use wheel studs, not bolts. To determine if we carry a wheel bolt that would work for you, I'd need to know the diameter, whether the existing bolts use a fine or a coarse thread and the length of the wheel bolts currently used with your hubs. I've linked you to our selection of wheel bolts, you can compare your bolts to these or simply...

  • What Mounting Slot Spacing on 5th Wheel Rails Fit the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • The Curt Q24 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16245 fits in industry standard above the bed rails. Industry standard rails have mounting slots that measure 22 inches on center front to back (it is actually closer to 21-13/16 inches). Side to side there are 3 sets of mounting slots per rail. The outside set is spaced 29 inches apart on center, the middle set, which is where the hitch will mount, is spaced 20-1/2 inches apart on center. And the inner set is spaced 10 inches apart on center....

  • Does Slide-In Bedliner have to be Trimmed to Install and Use a B&W Companion Hitch
  • I checked with B&W and with the Companion hitch # BWRVK3500-5W you would either need to remove the bedliner or trim it in the footprint of the entire base so it will have direct contact with the bed. The reason for this is because a slide-in bedliner can move around some and you do not want that happening when towing a 5th wheel trailer! I linked a video review of the Companion for you. The B&W Turnover Ball for the 2012 Ford Super Duty trucks is # BWGNRK1111.

  • Wire Gauge Sizes in Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box
  • The wire gauges in the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box # 277-000141 are as follows: White = 10 Black = 10 Yellow = 14 Green = 14 Red = 14 Brown = 14 Blue = 12 The wire gauge in the Epicord # 277-000141 changes with different functions of the wires. Signal wires, like yellow, green, red, and brown, draw less amperage so they use a lighter gauge wire. Heavier gauge wire is used for functions like the brake signal, ground, and 12V power because they carry...

  • Comparing Speed Ratings of Kenda and Taskmaster Radial Trailer Tires
  • Unless we indicate a higher speed rating for a tire it will generally carry a nominal 65-mph speed rating. This is the case for the Kenda Karrier ST225/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire with 15-inch Modular White Wheel # AM32673. The Taskmaster # TTWA225R6WS does indeed offer a substantially higher M-speed rating of 81-mph. For interstate highway travel, with speed limits potentially above 65-mph, I do recommend the Taskmaster. Operating a trailer tire at or above its maximum speed for long...

  • Why are RV Trailers Built For Fifth Wheel Hitches and Not Gooseneck Hitches
  • Since the RV industry came out of the trucking industry they ended up using what they knew which was fifth wheel hitches like semi-trucks. Since horse trailers came from agricultural origins that is why they always use gooseneck hitches. The big advantage that fifth wheel hitches have over gooseneck is that for short bed trucks you can get a sliding hitch that will allow for tight turning clearance. For gooseneck setups there's no similar option. Since most goosenecks are agricultural...

  • Needing Longer Weight Distribution Shank for Truck Tailgate to Clear Trailer Jack
  • The Reese # RP54970 weight distribution shank would be 4-1/2 inches longer than the 7-3/4 inch long shank that was included with your Husky Centerline weight distribution kit. If that won't give enough clearance, use the # EQ90-02-4500 from Equal-I-zer that is 18 inches long. Both the shanks I recommended have hole spacing of 1-1/4 inch, measured center to center which should be the same as your old shank.

  • Toolbox Compatible Ladder Rack for 2014 Ford F250/350 Pickup
  • The answer to your question will depend on what kind of toolbox you have. If you have a chest style that sits completely between the bed sides without resting on the top of the bed sides, the Thule # TH500XT Xsporter would work fine. If you're speaking of a crossover style toolbox that rests on the bed sides, the Xsporter would not work for you. The T-Rac Pro 2 # TA37003 from TracRac would allow you to mount your toolbox, using the integrated mounts shown in the photo I've provided...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2006 Ford F-350 Long Bed
  • Since you have a long bed truck you would not need a slider hitch. Those are designed for short bed trucks to give turning clearance. The Reese Titan Hitch part # RP30867 is very easy to use and has a handle/jaw design that allows you to easily know when the hitch is connected and ready to tow. Check out the review video I attached for more info. For fifth wheel rails you would want to go with a custom rail kit that allows for an easier install as they install in about half the time...

  • Left Turn Signal Circuit Causes Power to Bleed Over to Brake Circuit on 2006 Ford F-350
  • First, the center high mount stop lamp or CHMSL powers a third brake light. There is one under the truck for a camper shell that has a third brake light on it. To me it sounds like there is a short somewhere, wires exposed and touching other wires, which is causing the back feeding. It is likely a problem somewhere that is difficult to access or I imagine you would have found it by now since you have done so much already. What I recommend is to bypass the trouble circuits since they...

  • Automatic Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-350 Short Bed
  • The most cost-effective option we offer for an automatic sliding fifth wheel hitch for your 2005 Ford F-350 short bed would be to use the Demco Hijacker part # DM8550034 for the hitch and then universal rails part # DM8552001-71 although for the price I would highly recommend you go with a custom install rail kit like part # DM8552002-71 since the install will be much easier. The install time will be cut in half and frame drilling will be minimized.

  • Does Curt Flat Plate Gooseneck Hitch C65500 have a Capacity Rating if Bolted Directly to Truck Frame
  • I checked with Curt and they have the following note for gooseneck hitch # C65500: When exceeding 20,000 gross trailer weight, a bed floor support should be fabricated and installed to prevent the bed floor from collapsing. Beyond that there isn't a specific limit. But if it were me I would not install this hitch without adequate support considering the weight of a gooseneck trailer. What I recommend is a gooseneck hitch that is designed to fit your 2002 Ford Super Duty. The most...

  • Troubleshooting Chucking When Towing 2016 Highland Ridge Fitted with Trailair Air Ride Pin Box
  • Since you are using a suitable tow vehicle and your 5th wheel trailer is new I suggest you check the air pressure in your Trailair pin box to ensure it is inflated correctly. Air Ride pin boxes like # LC155933 are designed to absorb shock through their scissoring action and their internal air bag. It sounds like you are not getting those benefits so air pressure adjustment would be the simplest potential fix. The internal air bag should be inflated (with the loaded trailer hitched) until...

  • Options To Eliminate Excessive Gap Between Truck Bed Rails And Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • There are a couple things you can do to eliminate the gap you have between your F-250 and the fifth wheel trailer. If you have a lift kit on the truck you can remove it. The second option would be to remove your fifth wheel hitch and rails and replace it with a fifth wheel hitch like the Demco Hijacker SL Series Flat Deck 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # DM6076SL-FLAT. The hitch height when installed is 9 inches. Since you cannot use a slider with the Sidewinder you will need to lock...

  • After Repairing Damaged 4-Way Trailer Brake Lights/Turn Signals Not Working with 2004 Ford F-250
  • What probably happened was when the 4-Way connector was damaged on your 2004 Ford F-250 it could have caused a short in the tow package wiring for the brake light/trunk signal circuits or it is damaged further forward somewhere on the truck. If none of the tow package fuses are blown and you can't see any other damage then the easiest solution would be to hardwire in a new 4-Way using # 18252. This is a basic hardwire 4-Way that comes with a circuit tester and quick splice connectors. The...

This has been confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and would provide you with additional rear suspension support. The part # AL57398 would be the kit that is compatible with fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches, but since you do not have either this would not be the required kit to use.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement For 2001 Ford F-250 Towing A Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • I have attached a photo of the # RP50082-58 bracket installed on a truck like yours. As you can see, there is no interference with the bump stop you have installed on the truck. I recommend the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part # TFR250SDE for your 2001 F-250. These do not require any monitoring to make sure you have the system set correctly. When installed they will have about an inch clearance from the bottom of the spring to the axle, so the ride of your truck is not...

  • Recommended Brake Controller to Replace Factory Brake Controller on a 2012 Ford F-350 Lariet
  • I can help you find a better brake controller than the factory installed one on your 2012 F-350. I really like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 because it is a proportional brake controller which means it senses how the tow vehicle is slowing or stopping and applies the trailer's brakes with the same intensity. It also has a full display screen instead of codes that need deciphering. The P2 # 90885 is like the P3's little brother, it has all the great qualities but the display of the...

  • Choosing 5th Wheel Install Kit and Air Bag Kit for 2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty Long Bed
  • The difference between a universal-fit 5th wheel install kit and a custom-fit kit is that the custom kit will reduce your overall installation time and the amount of drilling required. They eliminate altogether the need for frame drilling and they naturally cost more for this reason. Neither offers an absolute advantage in terms of strength but with custom kits the larger brackets tend to mean more metal-to-metal contact with the truck's frame. If you take a look at universal install...

  • Does the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate # VG-97-100 Require Paint Prior to Install
  • If the paint looks good as-is on the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate # VG-97-100 I wouldn't bother adding additional paint to it. The tailgate is powdercoated which would be stronger than any standard paint you would spray it. The only time I would recommend painting the tailgate would be if there were flakes or scratches in the powdercoat that go down to bare metal. This may happen in the future from use. But for right now you would be fine without it.
