Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate Installation - 2008 Ford F-350

Today in our 2008 Ford F-350, we'll be installing the Pro Series 25K Gooseneck Plate for Fifth Wheel Rails, part number 49080. Now a great feature about having this adapter verses an under-bed gooseneck mount, is if you have a lot of trailers that you have to tow that are either gooseneck or fifth wheel, you are able to do that easily just by pulling the pins, removing it, and switching out your adapter to a fifth wheel. Removing it is as simple as pulling our clip, pulling our pin out, doing that on all four corners, and lifting it out. Once we have it back in place, when we're hooking it onto a different trailer or hooking our gooseneck back up, reinsert the pin, reinstall the clip just like that. Now you may notice right here we have our loops that go through here where we can wrap our safety chains through and connect our safety chains from our trailer together. We have one here on the front and one at the back because this adapter, if we need to bring our trailer closer to the cab of our truck, you notice it's offset. We can just flip it 180 degrees and reinstall our clips. Now this Pro Series Gooseneck Adapter has a 25,000 pound max gross trailer weight rating and a 6,250 pound max gross tongue weight rating. Here's what our gooseneck adapter plate comes with. Obviously we have our gooseneck adapter plate here, which comes with a 2-5/16 inch ball. When you flip this around you just want to make sure your ball is not behind your rear axle.

These are also compatible with Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley, and Husky fifth wheel hitches. Now with the use of our custom brackets, it's going to cut down on our installation time over a universal kit because everything's going to line up with some pre-drilled holes in your frame. Some vehicles do not have the pre-drilled holes, but most of them do. Now, another nice feature about these side plates is the bolts that come through the floor are actually on the outside of the frame rail, where on some of our fifth wheel hitches, they're going to be on the inside and a lot harder to torque.

Today on our 2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty, we're going to be doing a test fit on the 23x47 Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier for 2" hitches only. The nice thing about this cargo carrier is that it has these walls all the way around that clip together in order to make sure that you can get your cargo in here, but you don't have to worry about tying it down nearly as much to make sure that it stays contained. This is very handy because it'll give you a good idea of exactly how much you can fit. Now, this cargo carrier does have a 450 lb capacity. It's got a steel mesh floor down here on the bottom in order to help make sure that dirt and debris falls through and doesn't collect so that it can get onto the bottom of your cargo.

That's going to help make sure any dirt and debris falls through and doesn't collect up here so that it gets onto the bottom of your cargo. Also here we've got this lip all the way around the outside and it has some pre-drilled holes that are good for cargo tie-down points to make sure that your cargo stays secure on the top of your carrier. It's got these braces here that come along either end and those are going to help to give it a 300-pound capacity. Now let's take some measurements. First we'll do ground clearance at the back of the carrier and at the bottom of that bolt, we're looking right about 20 1/4 inches.

Now I'm going to show you this wireless remote in action. We hit a button to wake it up. We've got these arrows indicating that it functions both rear tires, or both rear air bags, I'm sorry.

Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty Questions

  • Starting with the truck series itself, I would go with a 3/4 ton or 1 ton. Ultimately a 1-ton would be better. Between gas and diesel I would choose a diesel if it were me. They are capable of more power and torque than gas motors. The cab style does not matter all that much but the bed size does. You will want to avoid a step side bed and a Dodge model that has a Rambox feature because they cannot have a 5th wheel hitch installed. Long beds are the way to go. A short bed can...

  • I agree that you most likely have an issue on the truck side. The voltage at the brake magnets when the vehicle is sitting still and the brake pedal is pressed will only read a small amount with the Ford integrated brake controller on your truck. If you are using the manual slide to activate the trailer brakes you should get somewhere between 12 and 13 volts with the controller set to the maximum setting. If this is the case there may be an issue with the brake controller. The...

  • Yes, we can help you test your brake controller and determine if the controller is bad or if there is a wiring issue that is causing the problem on your 2003 Ford F-250 pickup. Lets start with the easiest things first. Be sure that when you are testing the trailer brakes with the brake pedal that the vehicle is moving. The trailer brakes will not apply with the brake pedal if the vehicle is not moving because of the proportional sensor. The first thing I would check is the...

  • The best spot to install the Trailer Connector is on the bed sidewall on the drivers side, between the wheel well and the tail gate. We have an installation video showing this Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Wiring Harness # 20110 being installed on a 2002 Ford F250. You might want to consider using some dielectric grease, part # 11755 on the connections to provide protection from moisture. If you click the provided link, you can see an install video.

  • The advantage the Pullrite Superglide would have over the Reese Titan 20k hitch # RP30870 is that you would never have to get out of your truck to activate the slider. We don't sell Pullrite hitches, but that would be a huge selling point for me to pick it over the Titan. However, I do have an additional option for you to consider that we DO offer that does automatically slide like the Pullrite. I really like the Demco Hijack part # DM8550034. This hitch would work similarly...

  • The Pro Series Dual-Jaw 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # PS30855, is a standard duty 5th wheel intended for 6-foot and longer truck beds (except flareside and stepside types). It is rated for 16K gross towing weight and 4000-lb tongue weight. The similarly-rated Reese R16 Serrated Dual Jaw 5th Wheel Hitch, part # RP30866, provides several worthwhile upgrades including dual serrated jaws for 360-degree king pin contact, a vibration isolation system for reduced jarring and...

  • If your trailer has separate turn signals from the brake lights and you want them to remain that way, you will need to use a special converter. On the trailer side, behind the 7-Way, you will attach the Vehicle to Vehicle Taillight Converter, # 118158. On the 7-Way wiring, locate the wire for the left turn and brake and attach it to the yellow wire on the converter input side. Connect the wire from right turn and stop to the green wire input side. Ground the white wire to the...

  • 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...

  • You have done a great job troubleshooting the problem so far and have isolated the issue to the truck wiring. I have confirmed with my contact at Tekonsha, and another fuse that you might check would be fuse # 6 in the under dash junction box. This is a fuse for the trailer towing light relay. This will be a 20 amp fuse. This sounds like this is the fuse that is most likely causing the issues on your 2003 Ford F-250, since you do not have either brake or turn signals. The...

  • B & W recommends you lubricate the top surface of the coupler with an automotive type chassis grease like # L10337 or use a nylon lube plate like # RP83002 to provide a lubricated surface. They also recommend you grease the jaws with an automotive type chassis grease and grease the saddle through the grease zerk about every six months with multi-purpose grease like # L11316. This will allow the coupler to pivot freely. See the diagram I have included showing the location of...

  • Typically the brake control port that allows connection of an aftermarket trailer brake controller on the 2012 F-250 is located behind a small dashboard panel slightly to the right of center (toward the passenger side). Please refer to the photo provided. Behind this small panel, which can be removed with a flat-blade screwdriver or trim panel tool, you should find a wire harness with a grey connector (this may be secured with a zip tie). This connector mates with the corresponding...

  • The first thing you are going to want to test is the brake controller. Sever the brake output wire behind the back of the controller a few inches. Then use a circuit tester or multimeter like # BTMT15 to test the end coming out of the controller. If the controller output setting is set to the highest level, the tester should show approximately 12 volts. If it does, reconnect the wire. If it does not continue testing to see if the output fluctuates or changes at all. If it does...

  • You are correct, there are 4 electric over hydraulic braking systems, from 3 manufacturers, that can be used to eliminate the air over hydraulic actuator on your M200A1 trailer. These systems all require a breakaway system to meet DOT safety standards. I will detail each system for you so you can select the one that will work best for your truck and trailer setup. First, the Dexter Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator, # K71-650, would be a good choice because it will work...

  • I would use a programmer on the 7.3L. Since you have 200,000 I would only use a programmer if the engine has been well maintained. Regular oil changes with high quality oil and filters, no oil leaks, good engine seals, etc. As a matter of personal habit, I also use gas stations that use high quality fuel and sell a lot of it so they are constantly getting fresh fuel. I avoid stations that sell discount fuels to better ensure the fuel is high quality. Since you are planning...

  • If your 1999 F-250 Super Duty pickup had a factory 7-Way wiring harness and the, under vehicle connector has not been damaged you could use the Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, 7-Way (Super Duty), item # 118243, and if you had a factory 6-Way connector then you could use the Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, 6-Way (Super Duty), item # 20029, to replace your pigtail. If you would like to hard wire a new connector to the truck then you will need...

  • The Talon Series winches by Superwinch are the top of the line winches that we offer. The Tiger Shark Series Winch, # SW1517200, that you referenced is a large winch and may be overkill for your truck. Also, the Tiger Shark Series winches, while reliable, are more of an entry level recovery winch. The Talon winches are high-performance recovery winches. A few advantages that the Talon Series winches have over the Tiger Shark Series is that they will have a faster line pull,...

  • If your current brake assemblies are self-adjusting, once the hub/drum is removed you will be able to see the adjuster cable extending across the brake assembly as shown in the photo I have edited for you. If you find you do not have them, you can certainly replace your existing brake assemblies. You will need to initially adjust the brake assemblies, but after that they will be self adjusting. I have linked you to a video showing how to adjust brake assemblies, click the link...

  • If your Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, part # 90195, displays the error message OUTPUT SHORTED NO BRAKES, the potential causes are a short in the brake output circuit somewhere between the brake controller and the trailer brake assemblies, or a shorted or damaged brake magnet. Since you do have power reaching the trailer brake assemblies the issue is probably within them, rather than within the tow vehicle wiring, but if you wish you can still test the vehicle 7-way connector...

  • To address your concern about the compatibility of the Reese R16 Slider Hitch, # RP30869, with the Curt Custom Rail Kit, # C16448-204, they are compatible with each other. The above bed base rails that are used with the Curt Custom kits are the industry standard above bed rails that are used by Reese and other fifth wheel hitch manufacturers. The custom aspect of the Curt rail kit is the brackets. There is no drilling (into the frame) required to install the custom brackets...

  • I think the best overall tuner for your 2012 Ford F-250 with a 6.2 liter gas engine would be the Edge Evolution CS Programmer # EP85150. This is an excellent tuner that provides various tune levels that can increase power or maximize fuel economy if desired. This programmer also allows you display up to 8 parameters such as RPM, boost level, transmission temperature etc. The Superchips Performance Chip # SU1842 that you referenced is a great programmer but since it does not...
