  • Recommended 5thWheel to Gooseneck Wiring Adapter on 1999 Ford F-250&F-350 Super Duty w/Factory Plug
  • Good news, I can help. Your year and model of Ford truck was made with two styles of connectors when they were being wired in at the factory. This means you will need to look at your factory 7-way under you vehicle and see if the back of the 7-way connector has the round adapter or if it has a molded cable that leads back to a rectangular connector on the drivers frame rail. I've attached an image of the two for you to better see. If you have the factory round connector on the back...

  • Powered Trailer Jack Recommendation for Best Ground Clearance Under Trailer Frame
  • I wouldn't let the higher capacity of the Lippert Jack part # JET-3555 deter you from using it. Having more capacity than needed for a trailer jack is actually a good thing as it will allow the jack to last longer and operate quicker. It's retracted bracket height is 6-3/4 inches so it would work well for you in that regard plus it's priced great so it really would be your best option.

  • What Gooseneck Hitch Needs to Be Installed in 2014 Ford F-350 to Install Companion Fifth Wheel
  • Is the gooseneck hitch you have installed in your 2014 Ford F-350 a B and W Turnoverball hitch like part # BWGNRK1111 which is the correct hitch for your truck? If so, then yes the # BWRVK3500 hitch would be a confirmed fit as this hitch is designed to fit the B and W gooseneck hitches and provide a fifth wheel hitch. This would be all you need if that is the case. If you have a different brand gooseneck hitch email me back with what you have and we can come up with the best solution...

  • Replacement Hardware For Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit On 2011 Ford F-250
  • The RP50073-58 has been discontinued but is still verified as a fit for your 2011 F-250. Since hardware is designed for a one-time use only, you will want to replace the hardware with part # RP50073F. The base rails you have will work just fine. If you decide to replace the entire installation kit I recommend part # RP50026-58. The difference in this kit and the kit you said you are looking at is a little difference in the brackets, but my contact at Reese said the brackets from the...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2004 Ford F-250
  • The most popular tow bar we have that would have enough capacity for your 8,500 lb truck is the Blue Ox Aventa LX part # BX7445. Then for a base plate kit the Blue Ox part # BX2163 is confirmed as a fit for your truck and would work great. This was designed with the weight of your truck in mind so it would be rated for the weight as well. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2011 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
  • With a 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a short bed you are going to want a sliding hitch to give you clearance around tight turns. Which hitch you get is going to depend on the weight of your trailer. Two great sliding hitches for you are the Reese Titan Hitches # RP30869 for 16,000 lbs. or # RP30870 for 20,000 lbs. They both have dual-jaws to maintain a secure connection with your kingpin and reduce jarring and chucking and will travel up to 11 inches to help you make sharp turns. Both...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2006 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
  • Since your 2006 Ford F-250 has a 6-3/4 foot bed, you will want to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch to provide additional turning clearance between the truck and trailer. My favorite sliding hitch is the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550034. This trailer hitch features an automatic sliding feature that makes it my favorite, and it is made here in the USA. Traditional sliding hitches require you to pull over and get in and out of the vehicle several times in order...

  • Recommended Front & Rear Firestone Air Bags for 2002 Ford F-250 4X4 with Front Snowplow
  • If you install an 800-lb snowplow on the front of your 2002 Ford F-250 you will surely benefit from front-end load support in the form of an air bag kit like the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2223. This kit is a confirmed fit on your truck. For a rear axle kit you can use Ride-Rite # F2550 and an install video is linked to illustrate. I recommend using a dual path compressor kit # F2168. This allows you to control the front and rear air bags independently. If you were to carry, for example,...

  • Will Firestone Airbag Suspension Kit Fit With a Blue Ox Under-Bed Gooseneck System?
  • This kit was designed as such that it will work with most installed 5th wheel or gooseneck kits, including the Blue Ox. There should be a large frame hole just along the frame rail of your truck that is just above the axle where the Firestone kit will mount. You will want about 2 inches on either side and hole to be exposed and clear of interference for the # F2550 Firestone kit to fit. This # F2550 kit is confirmed to fit your 2008 Ford F-350 Crew Cab Diesel Long Bed. It's important...

  • Hanger Spacing for 3,500 Pound Axle Leaf Spring # SP-216275 on Tandem Axle Trailer
  • I think your idea is right on the money. Take the information from the 25-1/4 inch spring hanger spacing and subtract 2 inches. The subtraction will be 1 inch from the front hanger to the center hanger and another 1 inch from the center hanger to the rear hanger. Both of those measurements should be roughly 28-1/2 inches if using hanger kit # APT3. Using u-bolts for 3 inch diameter trailer axles is not a good idea on an axle that is 2-3/4 inches in diameter. It can allow for movement...

  • Tire and Wheel Recommendation for Boat Trailer in Salt Water
  • The aluminum wheels of # TTWA225RTM6AS5 are great for boat trailers because they do not rust, whether it be salt or fresh water. Another corrosion resistant option would be to use galvanized steel wheels because they are coated for protection. However, unlike the aluminum if the coating on the galvanized steel is chipped they will become susceptible to rust. You may see a white chalky residue on the aluminum but it doesn't actually harm the rim. The aluminum is the better option. I...

  • Can Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate VG-97-100 Be Painted White to Match Truck
  • The metal 5th wheel tailgates we offer for your 2012 Ford F-350 Super Duty pickup are either unpainted aluminum like the Husky # HL15130 or are black powder-coated steel like the Stromberg Carlson # VG-97-100 that you referenced. We also offer plastic composite models; all can be seen on the linked page. None is offered in a white finish but you certainly might have a new automotive paint finish applied by a qualified painter who has the appropriate type of paint. This is actually going...

  • Yes, for just the brackets of the part # RP50026-58 that you referenced which is a fit for your 2014 Ford F-250 short bed you would want the part # RP50026. Since the hardware that attaches the rails to the brackets is one time use and not included with that kit you would need the part # RP58430 as well.

  • Clearance Using Fifth Wheel Hitch on 2013 Ford F-350 Short Bed
  • From your measurements and the nose of your trailer it sounds like you will be able to use the B&W Companion # BWRVK3500-5W with your 2013 Ford F-350 Short Bed. However, you're cutting it close, and may run into issues on uneven ground so I still recommend going with a sliding hitch like # BWRVK3400-5W. It gives you 12 inches of movement so there won't be any question of clearance. To clarify the offset of the B&W Companion, you are correct that it allows 7 inches with the post in...

  • How Can I Pull a Fifth Wheel Trailer with My Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • You are correct that the best route is to use the B&W Companion Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # BWRVK3500 with the B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNRK1108. There isn't a way to convert your fold down to a turnover and I definitely don't recommend trying to modify your current hitch. The frame brackets and hitch head will have to completely swapped out. You also mentioned changing your pin box to a Goose Box. This is could be a great option if...

You also need to have 2-inches of space beneath lip of bed rail. Please refer to the linked cross-section diagram and to the video that show how the tie downs install.

  • No Power to Trailer Brakes when Connected to 2003 Ford F-350
  • The blue wire on a brake controller is output to the trailer brakes. If that wire is not connected the trailer brakes will not be getting any power. If there is a break in that wire somewhere between the controller and the trailer connector then that could be why it isn't working when the wire is connected. You could bypass it by running your own wire if you wanted to. The ABS system should be separate from the wiring for the brake controller. Usually the only time the ABS comes into...

This is a 5th Airborne Premium Fifth Wheel Air Ride King Pin with Sidewinder. This king pin reduces vertical shock along with moving the pivot point an extra 22 inches toward the rear of the vehicle, making it easier to execute tighter turns.

  • Suspension Enhancement and Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2002 Ford F-250
  • I did some checking and the Air Lift kit you have installed on your 2002 Ford F-250 was not designed specifically to allow the install of fifth wheel rails. You would have to remove them and go with a Timbren part # TFR250SDE if you wanted to install fifth wheel rails and still have suspension support. The Timbrens work great at providing additional support and don't require maintaining air pressure. Then the Reese Elite Underbed Kit part # RP30073 would fit your truck and you could...

  • Can Tandem Landing Gear be Added to 1990 Excel Fifth Wheel Camper
  • Behind the siding of the front of your trailer will be a section of frame that extend up and over to where the pin box is. You will have to access that by trimming back the siding there so that you could weld on the brackets for the landing gear like the part # LG-183708 that you referenced. You may want to take the trailer to a shop that has experience doing this.

It uses the air springs but also has internal jounce bumpers as a back-up in case the air springs should lose pressure. The air pressure can be adjusted from 5 to 100 psi depending on the load you are carrying. Since you mentioned the 2-gallon reserve air tank I recommend the Air Lift QuickShot...

  • Will a PullRite ISR 5th Wheel Hitch Fit a Reese Under Bed Install Kit in a 2011 Ford F-250/F-350

Installation kit # RP30126 is an under bed system, not industry standard rails, so your ISR-compatible hitch will not fit. You would need to use a traditional above bed rail kit such as # RP50026-58 for your 2011 Ford Super Duty. I have linked a video review of this kit for you.

  • Does 2004 Ford F-250 have to have Separate 4- and 7-Way Connectors to Use # HM40975
  • Like you said the Pollak 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket # HM40975 gets the 4-Way power from the same wiring as the 7-Way. All of the lighting functions for the 7- and 4-Way are already contained in the wiring that plugs into connector # HM40975. The 4-Way in your picture will not be used since # HM40975 has a built-in 4-Way. I do recommend taping up the old 4-Way and stowing it out of the way so nothing can get to it and cause a short.

  • Is Manual Exhaust Regeneration Option Included in Edge Diesel Evolution CTS2 Tuner EP85400
  • Certain capabilities of a performance tuner like the Edge Diesel Evolution CTS2 Performance Tuner # EP85400 depend on the information sent to the unit by the vehicle OBD-II port. Edge does make tuners for other trucks that do allow manual adjustment of the exhaust regeneration cycle, but this tuner in your truck will only display the preset ERC, not change it. My contact at Edge confirmed they offer no tuners for your particular truck that allow that adjustment.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2000 Ford F250 Towing a 5th Wheel
  • How you use your truck will decide whether you need a passive-type system or something adjustable. A passive system like the Timbren Aeon Springs, part # TFR150SDE won't have any effect on your truck's ride until a load is placed on your rear suspension (whether it's cargo in the bed or the pin weight from your 5th wheel). When your stock suspension is compressed, the Aeon spring will contact the axle, providing extra cushioning and stability and reducing body roll. If you don't often carry...

So if you went with a 9/16 inner and 3/4 outer, like # SP05-060, then it will work though it is possible that the fit will be tighter for some than others especially since there are tolerances in the spring eyes as well.

Make sure that the canopy is rated for this application and that it has the weight carrying capacity to hold the load you want to put on it.

  • Air Lift Suspension Enhancement and Compressor Kit Fit for a 2012 Ford F-250
  • The Air Lift air bag kit part # AL88396 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Ford F-250/350. The compressor kit part # AL25870 that you referenced would work great to inflate the bags as well. That being said, any air compressor could inflate the bags. Including an emergency compressor. I am sure you know this already, but using an emergency compressor would be much slower and much less convenient.

  • Programmer and Monitor Recommendation for a 2006 Ford F-250

  • Firestone or Air Lift Suspension Air Bag Kit for 2011 Ford F-250
  • We generally recommend the Firestone kits over the Air Lift as they attachment used between the rubber and the metal of the air springs is much more solid. I would recommend the part # F2550 for your 2011 Ford F-350. The wireless compressor kit part # AL72000 that you referenced would make an excellent compressor kit that we would highly recommend. The compressor kit brands can work with other brand air bags too. I attached install videos for both kits for you to check out as well.

  • Should the Blue Wire of a Brake Controller have Voltage
  • The blue wire of your brake controller wiring isn't going to have voltage on it unless you have a brake controller connected to it with either the manual override lever pulled or with the brakes applied. This is the circuit that the controller uses to carry the brake signal back to the 7-way. I attached a couple help articles on troubleshooting brake controllers for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Custom Towing Mirrors For 2010 Ford F-250
  • The custom towing mirrors I recommend for your 2010 F-250 are part # CM11900. These do not extend as they are a slip-on mirror. These mirrors are designed to fit manual, power, heated and non-heated mirrors. The CIPA Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors, part # CM17590-91 you referenced are designed to fit 2007 - 2013 Toyota Tundra only and will not fit a Ford truck. The arms of the mirror are what extends on the # CM17590-91.

  • Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags For 2002 Ford F-350 with 3 inch Lift and Fifth Wheel Rails
  • The correct Firestone Ride Rite Kit for your 2002 Ford F-250 is the part # F2550. This kit is compatible with fifth wheel rails as well so it would fit with your current rail kit. Normally we don't recommend suspension enhancement for vehicles with suspension that needs work though. The best recommendation I can make is to replace the springs and then use the 3 inch blocks part # F2368 but if for some reason your suspension only really had a net of 2 inches of lift you would need the...

  • Recommended Trailer Tire to Replace ST235/80R16
  • In your tire size of 235/80R16 I would highly recommend the Taskmaster part # TTWTRTM2358016E. This tire is the right size, has a capacity of 3,520 lbs at 80 psi which would be more than what your trailer would need, has great reviews from our customers, but mainly because unlike most trailer tires these are rated for up to 81 mph. Most are only rated for 65 which exceeding this rating can cause failure as well. We recommend ST tires over LT tires for trailers for the reasons you listed....

  • Determining Correct Air-Ride Pin Box To Replace Sidewinder on 2007 Keystone Everest 345S
  • In order to know which model Flex Air you'd need, we'll need to know either the part number of the original pin box or the part number of the Sidewinder. Closely examine the Sidewinder for a part number. If you can't find a part number, we can figure out which one it is by measuring the spacing of the bolts used to connect the Sidewinder to the fifth wheel. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains how to measure the center to center bolt hole spacing. If you scroll further down...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2010 Ford F-250 with Air Bags
  • A lot is going to depend on the air bags that you have installed on your 2010 Ford F-150. Take a look at where the upper air bag brackets attach to the frame on your truck. If the brackets are on the inboard side of the frame or on the bottoms of the frame then it won't be a problem because 5th wheel brackets will install primarily on the outboard sides of the frame. For an installation kit I recommend Reese kit # RP56005-53. It will be the easiest to install with the least amount of...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2007 Monaco Diplomat
  • The most popular and reliable proportional brake controllers we offer is the Prodigy P2 # 90885 from Tekonsha, which you referenced. We do not offer a quick-connect brake controller harness for use with Roadmaster chassis-based motor homes so your installation will be a hard-wire application. If your Monaco is already equipped with a 7-way connector at the rear (which I expect) you will need the wiring kit # 5506 to install the P2. If you do not have the 7-way then instead you will...

  • Can CTEK D250S Dual part # CTEKD250S Be Used with 7-Way 12 volt and Solar Panel to Charge Battery
  • A solar panel can be wired to the CTEK D250S Dual part # CTEKD250S that you referenced that could then charge a battery. Running your 12 volt circuit to the CTEK from the 7-way would also work as well. This charger would act as a isolation circuit and would not allow your vehicle battery to drain from the trailer battery. Also, since your 12 volt circuit isn't active when the vehicle is off you wouldn't need to worry about that.

  • Does Trailer Landing Gear Motor Have to Be Disconnected from Truck to Operate
  • You wouldn't want to be lifting up your trailer landing gear with the trailer still coupled to your truck as that would make the landing gear try to lift up the rear of your truck as well. Typically, the landing gear motor would be powered by the battery on the trailer. The battery would be maintained by the 12-volt circuit from the 7-way trailer connector. What this means is that the trailer wiring would not have to be connected to the truck for the jacks to run either.

  • Why Do Fifth Wheel Rail Kits Only Show Where to Install Rear Rail
  • The front rail is easy to place once you have the rear fifth wheel rail placed. What you have to do is use the hitch to place the front rail. Basically you would set the hitch in the rear rail after placing it where it belongs and then set the front mounting tabs of the fifth wheel hitch into the front rail and wherever the rail ends up in the truck bed is where you would need to mount it. This ensures that the hitch fits the rails the best without any binding.

Ball mount # 40331 measures 9-1/4 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It is rated for 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight and it has a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop.

Since you have a short bed truck you would need a slider hitch allow you to make tight turns without cab interference.
