Expert Answers about Reese

  • Will The Reese Weight Distribution, # RP66069, Fit On 2004 Nissan Xterra Towing A 2,620 Lbs. Trailer
  • To know if the Reese Weight Distribution, # RP66069, will fit on your Chalet LTW trailer you will need to measure from the center of your coupler ball back to the A-frame of the trailer. You will need to have clearance of 18 inches to 26 inches for the lift unit assembly to attach to the A-frame of the trailer. The Reese weight distribution system is designed for 4,000 lbs. gross towing weight and 400 lbs. tongue weight, so it will work fine on your 2,620 lbs. trailer and a tongue weight of 3

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control for 2010 Ford F-150 Towing 7600 Pound GTW Travel Trailer
  • The High Performance Reese SC Weight Distribution System # RP66155 you referenced will work just fine with the tongue weight and gross trailer weight you provide. This system also has reactive sway control which means it only responds to trailer sway after sway has already started. I would recommend the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution Hitch System, part # RP66074. This system is designed for trailer with tongue weights ranging from 600 to 1200 lbs.

  • Fifth Wheel Round Tube Slider Trailer Hitch Installation On a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD
  • Along with the 20K Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch with Round Tube Slider, item # RP30083, you will need the Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Custom Installation Kit with Brackets and Rails - Chevy / GMC, item # RP50064-58. The custom bracket installation will not require drilling through the frame on short box models but does require drilling two holes in the frame on long box models. There are two elongated holes in the frame rails that are used to secure the fifth-wheel installation brackets. I have had

  • Which Weight Distribution and Sway Control System for a 7,500 Pound Trailer Behind Dodge Ram 1500
  • The High Performance Reese SC Weight Distribution System, part # RP66153, would work just fine with your trailer. Your tongue weight fits just under the tongue weight capacity of the system which means it will not be too stiff of a ride, nor would you max out the system. Your trailer weight is also under the limit of the WD system. If sway is a big problem, I usually suggest using a weight distribution system that uses a dual cam sway control system versus a friction like part # RP66087. Howe

  • Should Torsion Bars Be Able to Fall Off My Weight Distribution Head Assembly
  • The trunnion bars on your weight distribution system should not fall out of the head assembly when driving down the road or during normal turns. When backing the trailer or turning very sharply the bar could come loose especially if the spring bars are not very tight. You should check the weight distribution head and trunnion head for damage and replace them if needed. You should also review your set-up instructions (see link) and make sure the attachment is correct. I would also recommend th

  • Can I Install My Valley 5th Wheel Hitch on my 2002 Chevy 2500 HD Short Bed With an Install Kit
  • The # RP30035 install kit you mentioned is a universal application. Although it would work fine on your Silverado, I would suggest using part # RP50064-58, it is a custom fit bracket kit with bed rails. Using a custom kit can reduce your install time by 1/2. A Valley hitch is compatible with Reese, Hidden Hitch, Curt or Husky rails, but we do not suggest mixing manufacturers when it comes to frame brackets and bed rails. In order to make sure the frame brackets will bolt up to the rails properl

  • Reese SC Weight Distribution System Works Well on Trailers with Hydraulic or Surge Brakes
  • The SC Weight Distribution System, item # RP66153, does work well on trailers with hydraulic surge brakes. The maximum trailer frame height it works with is 6 inches tall and maximum trailer frame width is 2 inches. If your trailer frame is less than 2 inch wide, spacers will need to be welded into place. The included Shank allows for a 1-1/4 inch Drop or a 6 inch Rise. If needed other weight distribution shanks with different drops, rises and lengths are available.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2013 F150 Towing 5000 lb GTW Travel Trailer
  • Typically for a setup like yours we would strongly recommend a weight distribution system over a suspension enhancement on the tow vehicle. When the trailer weighs more than 50% of what the tow vehicle weighs we recommend the use of a weight distribution system. I would rather see you use a weight distribution system like the Reese SC weight distribution system part # RP66153. This system has a tongue weight range of 400-800 lbs which should be about your setup would be. The part # RP66155 w

  • Weight Distribution for a 2014 Jayco Swift 287BH and 2013 Toyota Tundra Crew Max
  • When choosing a weight distribution system you need to go by the total tongue weight. 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. It sounds like the tongue weight of your trailer is 11 percent of the gross trailer weight dry (686 pounds). That would mean the likely tongue weight of the trailer at 8,000 pounds would be 880 pounds. A system that is rated f

  • Can PullRite SuperGlide Be Installed in a 2014 Ram 3500 With Reese Underbed Adapter part # RP30154
  • Depends on what model Pullrite Superglide you have, if its the ISR model (industry standard rail) then yes, it would be compatible with the Reese Ram Adapter part # RP30154. The adapter would install into the factory pucks of the rail kit and then you would install your Pullrite into the hitch. If you do not have the SuperGlide that is designed for industry standard rails then there isn't an adapter that would work. If you have the non-ISR SuperGlide I would recommend you order the truck w

  • Are Sidewinder Replacement Pin Boxes Available in Different Lengths
  • All Sidewinders move the pivot point of the trailer back 22 inches. There are currently no options for more or less extension. There are several different Sidewinders designed for different OEM pin boxes on 5th wheel trailers. To determine if there is one that fits your trailer you will need the manufacturer and model number of the pin box itself. This information should be located on a sticker or plate on the pin box. Next you can use the chart in the help article I have linked to determine

  • Rear of 2005 Cadillac Escalade Sags when Connected to 31 Foot Travel Trailer
  • The best way to eliminate rear end vehicle sag caused by towing a trailer is to use weight distribution. To choose a system you need to go by the total tongue weight. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of your 2005 Cadillac Escalade. If you get a system that is not rated properly for your set up then it will be ineffective. You also have to get the right rise or drop to tow the trai

This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow and then adding to that the weight of any cargo loaded behind the rear axle of your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Reese Strait-Line system # RP66083 is rated for 400 to 680 pounds tongue weight so if the total tongue weight is 680 pounds then this would be a great system for you.

  • Compatibility of RBW Lil Rocker 5th Wheel Hitch with Reese Install Kit # RP50140-58 for 2005 Ram
  • I believe the RBW hitch you specified uses industry standard bed rails. You can check this by measuring the side to side and front to back spacing of the hitch mounting tabs. If front to back, measured center to center the tabs are about 22 inches apart, and are either 10 inches, 20-1/2 or 29 inches apart side to side, measured center to center, the hitch will fit industry standard rails like those from Reese, Curt, Valley, Husky or Draw-Tite.

  • 5th Wheel Install Kit w/ Outboard Bed Rails With No Frame Drilling Required for 2005 Dodge Ram 2500
  • Reese does indeed offer a fifth wheel install kit that uses the longer outboard bed mounting rails and frame brackets that clamp to the truck frame that require no drilling into the frame. You'll need part # RP56011-53. The # RP50140-58 frame brackets also clamp to the truck frame without drilling, but this kit uses the narrower rails that mount in the truck bed. To install a 7-way trailer connector in the truck bed, you would use part # 51-97-411. I've linked you to an install video show

If this information is not on the pin box and you cannot find it in the literature then you can take some measurements to determine if the Goose Box, # RP94622. I have included a picture that shows the measurements of the pin boxes that this Goose Box will fit. If your measurements match any of them then the Goose Box will fit.

  • The part you referenced, Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30035, is a fit for your 2007 Silverado Classic. Universal-type kits like this one from Reese are the most cost-effective option, but take the most time for installation. Other kits offer the convenience of reduced drilling and less overall installation time by using semi-custom or custom brackets designed expressly for your vehicle.

  • Replacing Universal Wedge for Sidewinder with Pro Series Custom Wedge # 30850
  • Your frustrating experience using a universal-fit wedge is not all that unusual. Use of a custom-fit wedge rather than a universal-fit type should result in easier hitching of your Sidewinder-equipped 5th wheel to your Pro Series # PS30855. The Reese wedge # 30850 you reference is a fit for a range of the ProSeries 15K, 16K and 20K 5th wheel hitches. To adjust the wedge, connect it to the Sidewinder but do not fully torque it down just yet. Hookup to the fifth-wheel trailer and latch it prop

  • Trunnion Bars for Use in Reese Dual Cam and Dual Cam High Performance Weight Distribution Systems
  • The trunnion-style spring bars used in Reese Dual Cam weight distribution systems, both the standard dual cam and high-performance dual cam systems, are the same length. Trunnion spring bars are selected not based on length but by weight capacity. Weight distribution systems for a trailer should be selected based on the trailer's fully-loaded as-towed tongue weight. It is important to proper performance that the spring bars used have the correct amount of tension to provide the proper weight

  • Recommendation for Weight Distribution System on 2000 Ford F-250 to Tow Raptor V-Nose Toy Hauler
  • The tongue weight rating is the most important factor in determining which size weight distribution system is right for you. To determine the proper weight rating for a weight distribution system, you must first determine your trailer's tongue weight. You will want to add to that the weight of the cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. These two measurements make up the tongue weight rating for a weight-distribution system. When towing a v-nose trailer, I would recommend looking into

  • Do I Need a Ball Mount with a Rise or Drop on Ford F150 when Towing a 20ft Starcraft RV
  • There really is no normal or standard height. The correct height for your ball mount/weight distribution shank is going to be determined by your trailer's coupler height. The trailer, when connected to your Ford F150, should always be as level as possible. This puts less of a strain on the connection between the trailer and hitch and provides a much safer and comfortable ride. You will want to measure from the ground to the top of your hitch receiver opening. Next you will measure from the g

The slider provides 12 inches of travel for clearance when making tight turns. To determine if the slider hitch will provide enough clearance you will have to take some measurements.

Although it is a fit for your short box truck, this is a standard hitch and many people experience clearance difficulty when making turns unless the towed fifth wheel has a Sidewinder pinbox. If you plan on towing a fifth wheel trailer with a standard pinbox, I would recommend the Reese Elite Series Fifth Wheel Hitch With Slider, # RP30144, which also drops righ
