Expert Answers about Reese

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Bracket Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F350
  • I checked with Reese and the bracket kit part # RP50073 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit 2015 Ford F350. The install hardware that attaches these brackets to fifth wheel rails is considered one time use so you will need to get the part # RP58430 to install the brackets and rails in the bed of your new truck.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System with Sway Control for a 2013 Ford F-150 with Eco-Boost
  • The High Performance Reese SC weight distribution system you referenced # RP66153, would work just fine with your 28 foot travel trailer that has a dry weight of 6,000 pounds. It has a tongue weight capacity of 400-800 pounds and a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds. A nice included feature on the Reese weight distribution system # RP66153 is the sway control built in to the hangers with friction pads. You will also need a 2-inch ball # A-90 or a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286. I have...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution Shank With a 6-8 Inch Drop
  • The Reese shank # RP54970 you referenced is designed to work with round-bar or trunnion-bar weight-distribution but will only have a 2-inch drop. What I recommend is the Reese shank # RP3215. It has a 10-1/4 inch rise and 6-3/4 inch drop when used with round-bar systems. On the other hand, we currently offer a shank # RP3344 that has a 8-5/8 inch drop when used with a round-bar system. It is our maximum drop shank we carry at this time. You are unable use this shank in the rise position...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Trailer with 800lb Tongue Weight and Best Sway Control
  • The weight distribution systems we offer that have the best sway control are the Strait Line systems. They have the only sway control that actively works to prevent sway before it starts. For a Strait Line system confirmed to work with your 800 lbs of tongue weight I would recommend the part # RP66084. This system also allows for reversing of the trailer with the system connected. Check out the review video I attached for more information. When setting up a WD system on a vehicle...

  • How to Upgrade from a 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch to a 20k Hitch
  • Yes, as long as you have a set of industry standard rails in the bed of your truck (see pic for more info), all you would need to upgrade to a 20k plus would be to replace your current hitch with one like the Reese 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch part # RP30033 that you referenced. You will want to check the owners manual for your truck to be sure that your vehicle is capable of towing a trailer that weighs what you are planning to tow.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for 2015 Ram 3500 Dually Long Bed w/ Factory Tow Prep Package
  • The Reese # RP30054 hitch you mentioned is intended to be bolted directly to the frame of a cab and chassis truck, so it wouldn't be a good choice for your Ram 3500 with the OEM tow prep kit. Curt and B&W both offer hitches that will drop right into the existing factory pucks in your truck bed. The Curt # C16545-16021 has a 24,000 lb capacity, while the B&W # BWRVK3600 offers a 25,000 lb capacity. Either hitch would be an excellent choice for you, but I'd give the B&W product a slight...

  • Troubleshooting Fifth Wheel Trailer Sway When Truck Has New Tires
  • Putting larger tires on your truck may have raised the nose of your trailer which means your trailer is no longer sitting level and this certainly can cause the sway you are experiencing. To make sure your fifth wheel is level park the truck and trailer on level ground. Use the landing gear on the fifth wheel to make it level, then measure from the ground to the bottom of the pin box skid plate, not the king pin, and record the measurement. Next measure from the ground to the top...

  • Recommended Semi-Custom Base Rail and Installation Kit for a 2014 Ram 1500 6 Foot Bed Without Eco
  • Yes, the Reese semi-custom base rail kit # RP30035-386 will be a fit for your 2014 Ram 1500 without the Eco Diesel engine. The 10-bolt base rails sit in the truck bed and provide the necessary attachment points for your 5th wheel trailer hitch. An alternative base rail kit to consider is the Curt fifth wheel installation kit # C16305-204. These are currently less expensive and easier to install. Unfortunately, at this time we don't have any installation videos to assist you but please...

  • Can the Reese SC Weight Distribution System part # RP66151 Be Installed by One Person
  • Yes, the Reese SC Weight Distribution System part # RP66151 that you referenced does come with installation instructions. As long as you have basic tools and mechanical skills you would have no problem with setup, installation, or removal of this WD system. For more info check out the installation instructions link I attached to the right. I also attached an FAQ article on weight distribution systems for you to check out as well.

  • Weight Distribution and Bolt On Bracket Recommendation for a Trailer with Propane Tanks
  • There is a bolt-on bracket available that is designed for applications just like yours. Part # RP58305 is designed for trailers that have propane tanks or other accessories mounted on top of the frame rails that would prevent a normal snap up bracket from being installed. Since these bolt to the sides of the trailer frame clearance above the frame member isn't required. This would work great with the # RP66084 as long is this is the properly rated system for your setup. The best way...

  • Strait Line Weight Distribution System Recommendation to Replace Older Equalizer Hitch
  • Sounds like you are referring to a dual-cam sway control setup like part # RP26002. This is a great system that works to fight sway before it starts, but it can't be used with an Equilizer brand WD system like what you have. Before you look into upgrading your system there are a couple things you need to check first. Is the cargo in your trailer loaded as far forward in your trailer as it can be? Proper trailer loading is the best defense for trailer sway. The next thing you need...

  • Compatibility of Reese 14K 5th Wheel with Reese Underbed Rail Adapter on 2006 Ford F-350
  • If your underbed rails on your 2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty Dually are Reese Elite Series or OEM/factory rails then the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP30156, will work for you. To determine if your Reese 14th Classic 5th Wheel will fit the adapter, # RP30156, you will need to measure the legs on your Reese 14K Classic 5th Wheel and as long as the legs fit the mounting holes you are good to go. See the picture with the measurements...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-350 Short Box Super Crew Cab
  • There are two basic options for 5th wheel towing in short box trucks like the 2015 Ford F-350 Super Crew Cab you're considering. One option is a sliding 5th wheel hitch like the 20K-rated Reese R20 # RP30870 and the other is a special replacement trailer pin box called a Sidewinder. The Reese # RP30870 installs in industry-standard base rails such as those included with the Reese custom bracket 5th wheel installation kit # RP50073-58. This kit will save you considerable installation...

  • Recommended Below the Bed Gooseneck Hitch for a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 8 Foot Bed
  • The hideaway gooseneck hitch I recommend for your 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 is the B & W # BWGNRK1394. It has a 30,000-lb gross towing weight and 7,500-lb tongue weight. The hitch ball can be engaged or disengaged from inside your 8 foot bed. The custom fit wiring you will need is part # C56071. It is a RV-style connector that you mount in your 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 to hookup of your 5th-wheel or gooseneck trailer If you don't have some already, I recommend using Loctite Threadlocker # LT37420...

  • Towing Fifth Wheels and Gooseneck Trailers with Ford F250 with 6 Foot 8 Inch Bed
  • Good truck choice! A 6-3/4 foot bed should work just fine for a gooseneck, but for a fifth wheel, you won't have enough clearance between the trailer loft and the rear of the cab. During turns, you could possibly have the trailer corner collide with the rear of the cab. Which would be bad. Since you don't have the truck yet, I'd go with an 8 foot bed so you can avoid clearance issues all together. There are two ways you can gain enough clearance. First, you can use a sliding fifth wheel...

  • Hitch Extender for Flat Towing Ford Escape With Ford F250 Short Bed Carrying 8 Foot in-Bed Camper
  • You'll need about two feet of extension to reach past the end of the camper. The Reese Titan Hitch Box Extension, part # RP45292 would provide 24-34 inches of extension, which would be ideal. The extender is shipped at a 36 inch length, and is designed to be cut down to 24 inches if needed. The extension requires a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2 inch receiver. The Reese Titan # 45010 hitch you referenced fits a Dodge Ram truck. If you could tell me the model year of your F250, I'd be happy...

  • Measurement For Installing Universal 5th Wheel Installation Kit Rails In 1994 Ford F-150
  • The Reese Universal Installation Kit For 5th Wheel Hitches, part # RP30035, is designed to work well with your 1994 Ford F-150. I have attached a drawing that shows the dimensions you need when installing the rail kit in the bed of your F-150. As the drawing shows you need to measure 29-5/16 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed to the rear edge of the base rail that is placed closest to the tailgate in the bed. I have attached a product review video for the # RP30035 kit you can...

  • Do I Need a Weight Distribution System for 2014 Toyota Tacoma Towing 3200 LB Trail Manor RV
  • If the rear of your 2014 Toyota Tacoma sags when your Trail Manor RV is hooked up or if you experience trailer sway, these are just two ways that you could benefit from using a weight distribution system. Another instance where we recommend using a weight distribution system is if a trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). I have attached an article that goes over common weight distribution and sway control questions. When choosing a weight distribution...

  • Is Hensley BD3 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with a Sidewinder Pin Box
  • There are indeed certain 5th wheel hitches that are not compatible with a Sidewinder or Revolution pin box. Some Hensley, B&W and other hitches are not recommended for such applications due to the fit of the wedges supplied with Sidewinders. I checked with a technical staff member at Hensley about both hitches you referenced, the BD3 and the TS3. According to my contact both of these hitches can be modified by addition of a welded-on part to enable them to be used with a Sidewinder or...

  • Stationary Base for Reese # RP30083 Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch
  • First off, thank you for your previous purchases from etrailer. We appreciate your repeat business. I found a record of a 2010 5th wheel hitch purchase under your name, for the Reese 20K Slider # RP30083. My contact at Reese confirmed the correct fixed leg kit for this hitch is their part # RP30727.

  • Compatibility of Reese Weight Distribution Shanks for 2-1/2 Inch Receivers with Ford OEM
  • I cannot say for certainty if one of the shanks designed for a Class V hitch would work. There are sometimes fit problems using aftermarket ball mounts and shanks in the 2010-2012 Ford OEM Class V hitches. The OEM hitch uses a more rounded radius in the corners of the receiver tube, which sometimes can prevent aftermarket accessories from being installed in the hitch. The Reese # RP54976 and # RP54977 are designed and tested with Reese, Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite hitches. Reese has found...

  • Recommended Under-Bed 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitch Mounts for 2015 Ford F250 Long Bed
  • I'm not sure what Ford charges for their prep package, but we certainly offer the aftermarket version. In my experience, aftermarket parts are usually much less expensive than their OEM counterparts. Starting with the rail kit that bolts to your frame and provides the pucks, you'd need part # RP30126. If you add part # RP30138, you'd be able to tow gooseneck trailers, as well. For a fifth wheel hitch, Reese offers an 18K and a 25K hitch that would fit directly into the pucks, for the...

  • Recommended Lube to Keep Hitch Ball Locking Mechanism Working Smoothly
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese and he recommended keeping a light coating of grease like part # 58117 on the hitch ball both top and bottom. This will keep the ball bearing locking mechanism working smoothly and prevent corrosion and quiet the connection to a degree. It will help extend the life of the ball too. The lubrication allows grit to slide around more, instead of just grinding directly into the metal.

  • Does the Reese Goose Box Part # 94622 Come With Safety Chains
  • The Reese Goose Box # RP94622 air ride coupler you referenced does not come with safety chains. Safety chains, such as the Tow Ready # 49150, are always a good idea whether they are required or not. I highly recommend checking with the local and state laws where you will be traveling to determine the safety chain requirements. The issue is that a trailer that couples to a ball would require safety chains in many geographical locations. Though the 5th wheel trailer may not require them,...

  • Can Weight Distribution Be Used on an Aluminum Car Hauler Trailer
  • You should not have any issues using weight distribution with your aluminum trailer, but you will want to check with the trailer manufacturer to be certain. My contact at Reese has stated that as long as the trailer manufacturer says it's ok then their systems would work well on aluminum trailers. Since you have a tool box above the frame on your trailer you will need to use bolt on brackets, part # RP58305 since you do not have clearance above the frame for the standard chain hangers. The...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Installation Kit for 2014 Dodge Ram 3500
  • For your 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 Pickup I recommend the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, part # RP56010-53. This is a custom installation that will cut the installation time in half when compared to universal installation kits. The custom brackets mount to the existing holes in the frame of your truck and minimize cutting and drilling and measuring. This kit includes under-bed brackets, installation hardware and industry-standard base rails that will work with hitches from Curt, Draw-Tite,...

  • Will Reese Replacement Weight Distribution Bracket # 58392 Work with Eaz-Lift WD System
  • The Eaz-Lift weight distribution system uses spring bar lift brackets that are indeed roughly similar to the Reese replacement bracket # 58392 that you referenced. The Reese brackets clamp on to trailer frames up to 2-1/4-inches wide and occupy 5-1/2-inches of space on the trailer frame. Reese and other manufacturers do not test their products with those of other companies so I cannot say with absolute assurance that this will work to your satisfaction with your Eaz-Lift system.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution With Sway Control on a 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • Any weight distribution system you add to your 2013 Dodge Ram pickup will hinder your maneuverability when backing up your trailer into tight spots. You can make slight turns in reverse with a weight distribution system, but not sharp ones. Since you have a pole tongue, you will need a pole tongue adapter # RP58393. This Reese pole adapter will provide an attachment point for the spring bars by mounting a weight-distribution system the trailer. The pole tongue adapter only works...
