I have a C5G14 and I need the offset, but Im not clear on the Height adjustment on this model,How do you go higher than 12 or 14 inches?
asked by: Danny M
Great question, I actually went out to the warehouse and pulled the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter w/ Offset, # CAB-C5GX1216, and did a short to show how it is adjusted, see link.
You will need to loosen the set screws at the front for 2 inches of adjustment and the set screws at the back allow for 2 more inches of adjustment. Make sure that the red line cannot be seen in either location when the adapter is adjusted to the correct position for your truck and trailer.
When tightening and loosening the set screws for adjustment on the front and rear portion of the adapter, there is a large lock nut that is used to keep the set screws from loosening while traveling.
You may also be interested in the Disc-Style Padlock, # DT40124, to secure the adapter to the hitch ball, instead of using the metal bar in the slot where the latch locks and opens the coupler.
