Expert Answers about Reese

  • Troubleshooting a Camper Trailer that Sways and Bounces above 60 MPH
  • What's going to help the most for the sway and bouncing you are experiencing is to have the trailer sitting as level as possible while it is being towed and having as much of the weight of the cargo in your trailer moved to the front of the trailer as possible. Check out the FAQ article I attached on picking out a ball mount for the amount of rise/drop that is needed. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when...

  • Pintle Hook and Plate Mount Recommendation for Use with the Reese Super Titan # 38124
  • The Super Titan Hitch # 38124 that you referenced has a 3 inch opening on it. For a 3 inch pintle hook plate with a 25k capacity you would want the # RP38186. And then for a hook with a 30k capacity that would bolt up to that plate you would want the # 63015.

  • Sidewinder Recommendation for a 2013 Ram 3500 Short Bed Towing 2008 Raptor Toy Hauler
  • Your trailer must have a very wide nose and a non-extended pin box. But with that said a 6 foot bed is the longest bed length that a slider hitch can typically work with so I could see how there might be some clearance issues. I wouldn't expect that you couldn't even make slight turns, but anything is possible if you have a very wide trailer. I can't safely recommend you tow your trailer around with the slider in the rearmost position. This will cause traction problem for the front wheels...

  • How to Pick Out a Weight Distribution System For a 2005 Chevy Tahoe Towing a Keystone 230 RS
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. If your tongue weight falls in about the middle of the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System # RP66083 that you referenced it would be a great choice for your setup. The...

  • What Pin Boxes Does Rotating Turret for Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pins # RP61302 Fit
  • The Rotating Turret for 5th Airborne and Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pins # RP61302 that you referenced is designed to fit the following pin boxes: Venture CJ20517, CJ13515 and CJ13517 and Dexter 12" pin boxes: 221-0033-00 and 221-0031-00. You will need to check the plate near your current trailer's pin box to determine what pin box you currently have to see if this would work as a replacement. To complete a Sidewinder you would also need the # SW16K. I also attached an FAQ article...

  • How to Measure to Find the Right Rise or Drop Ball Mount to Tow a Trailer Level
  • On any given vehicle, the hitch height can be different depending on many factors. So the only way to determine the correct drop needed to tow the trailer level is to take a couple of measurements. First you will need to have the truck and the trailer parked on level ground. Then measure from the ground to the top of the receiver opening on your 2011 Chevy Silverado. Next you will need to level the trailer and measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. If the trailer is...

  • Which Lube Plate Works With Reese Elite Fifth Wheel Hitch

This lube plate measures 12 inches diameter and will work with Reese fifth wheel hitches with 20,000 lb capacities and also Reese Elite and Signature series hitches.

  • Does Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30074 Fit 2015 Ram 2500 6ft-Bed Without Rail Kit
  • The Reese Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit # RP30074 that you referenced is a fit for the Ram 2500 with 6-foot bed up to the 2013 model year. This will not fit your 2015 Ram 2500 without the factory-installed rail kit. I confirmed this with my contact at Reese. Also there is no plan to offer a rail kit for your truck that will accept the Elite Series hitches. The good news is that we can offer you other options for 5th wheel towing. The link at right will show you the recommended...

  • Selecting Replacement Trunnion Weight Distribution Spring Bars for Reese WD System
  • The best-performing weight distribution/sway control systems are those that prevent sway from occurring in the first place, rather than trying to stop it once it starts. Reese Dual-Cam systems are among the better options in such a set-up. It is absolutely possible to swap out your existing trunnion spring bars to new ones with a more appropriate weight capacity for your trailer's tongue weight. The way to do this is to measure your trailer's tongue weight with a scale like the Sherline...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2007 Dodge Durango Towing 3,400 lb Travel Trailer
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. Typically tongue weight is 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight, so if your 2500 lb trailer was loaded with 900 lbs of cargo you would be looking at a total weight of...

  • Fifth Wheel Install Bracket Kit and Install Hardware Recommendation for a 2014 Chevy 3500 Long Bed
  • Sounds like you have what is now the 16k rated Reese Hitch part # RP30047. To install the 10 bolt rails you have all you would need is the part # RP30439 and part # RP58430. These two part numbers are everything you need to install the rails you have in the bed of your 2014 Chevy 3500 long bed. I attached installation instructions and an install video for you to check out as well.

This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. Based on the weight of your trailer you will need a higher rated system, something like the # RP66130 could work as long as your tongue weight fell within it's range, 800...

  • 20k Reese Select Plug Hitch Recommendation for Trailer that Weight 16,500 lbs

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • The Reese Custom Install Kit part # RP50066-58 would be the rail kit I would recommend for your 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500. This is a custom install kit that will install in about half the time as a universal kit and will minimize drilling. For a 16k capacity hitch I would recommend the Reese R16 part # RP30866. This is a cushioned hitch with a great jaw design that will minimize movement and noise while towing. If you need more capacity I would go with the 20k capacity version of this...

  • Adapting PullRite 3300 Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch to 2015 Ford F250 w/ OEM Tow Prep Package
  • If your PullRite 3300 is the ISR model that's compatible with Industry Standard Bed Rails, you would be able to use the # RP30156 adapter. For the gooseneck ball, you'd just need the Reese # RP30137. If your hitch is the Traditional model, I'm not aware of a solution we offer that would allow the hitch to work with the in-bed pucks. The best practice is to use a fifth wheel hitch for a fifth wheel trailer, and a gooseneck hitch for a gooseneck trailer. Using adapters to tow a Fifth Wheel...

  • Installing 5th Wheel Hitch on 2004 Nissan Titan LE 5.5 ft bed
  • Every fifth wheel hitch install kit has a given spot on the vehicle where it should be installed. Typically, the hitch will be installed so that the king pin of the fifth wheel sits centered atop the rear axle, or within a few inches forward of the rear axle. Installing the hitch so the king pin falls behind the rear axle is NOT recommended under any circumstance. The trailer pin weight landing behind the rear truck axle will indeed lighten the weight coming down on the front truck...

  • Replacement Crossmember Head Support for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 16,000 lbs RP30047
  • Actually both the # 30536 and the # 58089 would fit the Reese 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch you have # RP30047. Both of these part numbers are the same product, only difference is that the # 30536 is sold individually and the # 58089 is sold in a pair.

  • Fifth Wheel Install Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2001 Dodge Ram with Reese 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Yes, the Reese Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit # RP30035-023 that you referenced would be compatible with your Reese fifth wheel hitch. However, for your 2001 Dodge Ram you would want the # RP30035 instead of the # RP30035-023 that is designed for newer trucks than yours. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Will Reese Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 Accept a 16K Husky Hitch
  • Yes, the Reese "picture frame" Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 that you referenced provides the equivalent of industry-standard 5th wheel base rails that will work with most standard 5th wheel hitches from Reese, Curt, Draw-Tite, Valley and Husky. This unit is rated to 20K so it will have more than enough capacity for your Husky 16K hitch.

  • Installation Instructions for Reese Universal Base Rail Kit on 1989 Ford F250 Long Bed
  • At the present time we do not have a video showing the installation of # RP30035 on a 1989 Ford F250 long bed. However I have attached the installation instructions for part # RP30035 for you at right. The rear rails should sit 32-1/2" from the rear edge of the truck. The measurement is from the rear edge of base rail to the rear edge of the truck bed. Once you have the rear rail in place you will be able to use the fifth wheel to position the front rail. It is as simple as that. See...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 30-Ft. 6K Trailer Towed by 2010 F-250 V8
  • The key to selecting the correct weight distribution/sway control system is to know your trailer's actual fully-loaded ready-to-tow tongue weight just as it will be when you head out - meaning full water and propane tanks, supplies, gear, toys (and beer!) all loaded. Sherline makes a handy scale for measuring tongue weight, part # 5780, but there are other ways to measure that are outlined in the linked article. Total tongue weight must also include the weight of anything in the truck...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-350 Short Bed with Hitch Prep
  • Congrats on the new truck and trailer purchase! Since your 2015 Ford F350 has a short bed you will need a slider hitch, and since it has the fifth wheel hitch prep package you would want the Reese Elite Hitch with Slider for Ford Hitch Prep Packages part # RP30144 that is designed to fit your underbed rail system. This is one of the nicest hitches on the market that would be an excellent choice for you.

  • Strait Line Weight Distribution System and Drop Shank Recommendation
  • The Strait Line System # RP66088 that you referenced does include a shank, for a similar setup with the same sway control and weight capacity that doesn't include a shank you would want the # RP66074. This is a trunnion bar system which is often preferred to round bars as it gives better ground clearance. For a shank you could use either the # RP3344 or # RP3215 that you referenced since it sounds like you need a reasonable amount of drop to tow your trailer level. I attached an FAQ...

  • How to Install a Weight Distribution System on a V-Nose Trailer
  • Yes, there is a way to use the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System part # RP66074 on a V-nose trailer like yours. You will need to use the Chain Hangers # RP58305. These will bolt to the sides of your trailer frame and do not require clearance above the frame like standard hangers do so they will work well on your V-nose trailer. I attached a review video for the WD system and an FAQ article on WD systems for you to check out as well. The best way to pick out a weight distribution...

  • Adding a Weight Distribution System on a 18 Foot V-nose Aluminum Trailer
  • Since your trailer is aluminum, I would contact the manufacturer to see if adding a weight distribution will damage the aluminum A-frame. To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. The Reese SC weight distribution system # RP66151 rated for 200...

  • Selecting a Weight Distribution Hitch for 2010 Ford F-150 Towing 9700-lb GVWR Jayco Trailer
  • First, I wish you many happy miles and good times with your soon-to-be Jayco Eagle. Also, thank you for providing the details about your truck, and your trailer specs and weight ratings. Since the Jayco is over 34-feet in length I do suggest a weight distribution system that incorporates sway prevention, such as the Reese Strait-Line System # RP66130 that you referenced.
