Expert Answers about Valley

  • 5th Wheel Rail and Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 2014 GMC Sierra 3500
  • The only option I have for you would be to go with a Reese bracket and rail kit part # RP50066-58. Valley has discontinued their rail and bracket kits so I do not have a Valley kit to recommend. The rails of the Reese kit are compatible with your Valley hitch and would work very well. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out also.

  • Trailer Lights Do Not Work When Connected to 7-Way Connector on 2013 Ford F-350
  • If you are using the part you referenced, Valley OEM Style 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connectors for Ford # V30607, and the 4-way works but the 7-way does not, the first thing to check is that the round connector that plugs into the back of the 7-way is fully seated and that the locking tabs are engaged. Since the 4-pole has lighting signals we know the vehicle wiring is sending the appropriate signal to the round U.S. car connector that plugs in to the OEM harness. This makes the plug-in connectio

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2004 Dodge Ram Short Bed
  • The Valley installation kit for a 2004 Dodge Ram and gooseneck hitch is no longer available. We do have other hitches and installation kits sold together that will fit. If you have a 1500 series a similar gooseneck hitch is the Blue Ox Diamond hitch # DH1104. And for a 2500 or 3500 series you would use # DH1102. Both kits come with the hitch and installation kit. I have included installation instructions for both and a video for the DH1102.

  • Availability of Install Kit to Install Valley Fifth Wheel Hitch on 2007 Ford F250 Super Duty
  • To measure the length of your truck bed, measure from the front of the bed rearward to the rear edge of the bed (not the end of the tailgate). If you have the 6-1/2 foot bed, you will need to use a sliding fifth wheel hitch to provide additional clearance between the front of the trailer and the rear of the cab during low speed maneuvering. Failure to use a sliding hitch on a short bed truck could cause the front of the trailer to strike the rear of the truck cab during turns. The correct Va

  • How Does a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install in Above the Bed Rails on a 2001 Dodge Ram 3500
  • I am not sure which hitch you are referring to but whether you are using installation kit # V70550 which is the part you referenced or # V55340R which is the part you mentioned in the question, both use the same above the bed rails. The rails will accept Valley, Draw-Tite, Reese, Husky, Curt, and Hidden Hitch fifth wheel hitches that fit in above the bed rails. The hitches have little tabs on the ends of the legs that fit into slots on the tops of the rails. You then use pins and clips to sec

  • Only Right Turn Signal Works on Factory 7-Way Trailer Connector on 2004 Nissan Pathfinder Armada
  • Using your circuit tester, test the wires in the harness behind the 7-Way. That way you can determine if the power is making it that far which would indicate a problem in the connector itself. If there is no power there as well then it still could be fuses or relays. On some Nissan vehicles there is another relay that is in the in-cab fuse box. Use the owners manual to locate all of the fuses/relays related to the tow package and make sure they are present and working. If that one relay is mi

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a Valley Hitch and 2000 Ford F-250
  • I will be happy to help you. For your 2000 Ford F-250 you will need to use another brand because the Valley brackets are unavailable at this time from the manufacturer. Because the rails you have now have not been tested with brackets from another manufacturer, I strongly advise against mixing bracket and rail manufacturers. It also makes the capacity unknown. So if we look at complete installation kits, the most cost effective option is Reese universal installation kit # RP30035. The rails a

You will want to install a bracket and rail kit in each of your trucks to be used with your 18,000 pound Reese Slider 5th wheel hitch.

  • Troubleshooting a 2005 Nissan Armada Trailer Turn Signals Not Functioning
  • It sounds like you have isolated the problem to being on your 2005 Nissan Armada. The relays could be bad like you suggested, which you could try replacing them to see if that helps. Another possible solution would be a bad ground. You might check the condition of the ground circuit to make sure it is attached to a clean metal surface. We sell the relays, you would want Curt Relay Kit # C57000. The blue relays are the turn signal relays so it would make sense if replacing them would fix the p

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Short Bed
  • You can install a 5th wheel trailer hitch in a 1/2 ton truck although the best trucks for 5th wheel towing are 3/4 and 1 tons. As long as the trailer is within the towing capacity of the truck (consult the truck owners manual) you will be fine. There are custom kits and universal kits available for your 2008 GMC Sierra 1500. A custom kit is easier to install, takes less time, and requires less drilling. You can use # RP50064-58 for a custom installation kit. I have included a link to the inst

  • Comparing Jaw Types on Fifth-Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • In regards to fifth-wheel hitches, there are a number of jaw types. A slide bar jaw is found on the less expensive hitches, such as the Pro Series # PS30129. This type of jaw is a secure one for your trailer but you will notice some king pin noise and some chucking as the fit is looser. This design will automatically close around the king pin once it is in place where the double- and single-jaw models will not. The double jaw design is more snug and secure than a slide bar jaw and you will he

  • Is Extra Reinforcement Needed for Valley Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter V70880 on a 2001 Dodge Ram

If your truck has a factory 7-Way plug, we offer part # 51-97-411 if you also need to run wiring to the truck bed.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a Husky 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2001 Chevy Silverado
  • There are several installation kits that you can use that will accept your Husky 5th wheel trailer hitch. Make sure that the tabs on the hitch where it mounts to the rails are approximately 22 inches apart on center front to back. Left to right the slots will need to be 10 inches apart on center, 20-1/2 inches apart on center, or 29 inches apart on center like in the picture I have included. The rails we carry all have the same mounting measurements for the 5th wheel hitches. A kit like # HT3

  • Compatibility of Valley Class III Hitch on 2008 Toyota Highlander with Weight Distribution

By checking their catalog, I see that they offer a # 81312 that has a 600 lb tongue weight/6000 lb towing capacity. Your best bet would be to look at the identification sticker on your hitch. If the hitch is compatible with a weight distribution (W/D) system, the hitch will list TWO capacities, one for Weight

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch in a 2004 Ford F-350
  • One option is to replace the pin box on the trailer with a Goose Box like # RP94622. There are a few different Goose Boxes. To determine if one will fit your trailer you will need to look at the pin box to determine the pin box manufacturer and model number. A second option is to use the Anderson adapter # AM3225. One end clamps around the gooseneck ball and the other end has an adapter from the 5th wheel king pin. I have included a link to a video review of this adpater for you.

  • Recommended Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Adapter for 2008 Ford F250
