So if you don't insert the product straight on, it's really easy to slide that adapter back, which I just did. And then you have to try to line it up again. It can be a little difficult. So line up the hitch pin holes, and then you'll insert your pin and clip.

  • Does a Cushioned 5th Wheel Hitch or Cushioned Pin Box Give Better Ride Quality
  • If it were me I would go with a non-cushioned hitch and the upgraded pin box for the trailer. The reason for this is the amount of cushioned and chucking prevention on the pin box is greater than what would be on a cushioned hitch and would provide a superior ride. For a 14,000 pound 5th wheel trailer I recommend the Reese hitch # RP30047. This is the old workhorse for Reese. Its been around a long time because it is a quality design and a reliable hitch. For the proper replacement...

  • Placing Pivot Arms on B&W Companion Hitch in Furthermost Position for Short Bed Truck
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W and ideally you do want the king pin to sit centered above the rear axle or slightly forward but in order to increase the turning clearance on your 2014 Ford F-250, your installer was correct in placing a B&W Companion 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch like # BWRVK3400-5W in the furthermost position. According to installation instructions, the position of the pivot arm allows the kingpin to adjust from 1 inch ahead of the post to 7 inches behind the post. Please...

  • Hitch Extender Needed with 600 lbs Tongue Weight and 7,000 lbs Towing for a 2012 Ford F-350
  • I have an option that will work for you, however, there are no 24 inch hitch extenders with a 600 lb tongue weight and 7,000 lb towing capacities. The capacities you need will require a special setup when extended out 24 inches. Your best option would be to remove your existing trailer hitch and install the TorkLift SuperHitch Magnum Class V Trailer Hitch, # TLF1002-30. With this hitch, you can use the TorkLift SuperTruss 24 Inch Hitch Extension, # TLE1524. The SuperTruss can only be...

  • Reese Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for 2014 Ford F-250
  • Yes, for just the brackets of the part # RP50026-58 that you referenced which is a fit for your 2014 Ford F-250 short bed you would want the part # RP50026. Since the hardware that attaches the rails to the brackets is one time use and not included with that kit you would need the part # RP58430 as well.

  • Do you have to Know the Rear Axle Weight, Not Capacity, to Figure Out How Much a Truck Can Tow
  • Knowing the weight of the tow vehicle axle is not really relevant, or at most rarely relevant, to determining how much the truck can tow. What matters is the truck manufacturers axle capacity, gross trailer weight capacity, and gross combined weight rating. In my years of working in this industry I have never heard of the axle weight on the tow vehicle being needed to determine anything. Only the capacities. With that said I also asked around here to get some other opinions on the subject...

  • Ladder Rack for Use with Retrax Pro MX Tonneau Cover
  • The Retrax Pro MX tonneau cover mounts on top of your Ford pickup's bed rails. This is the same installation point used by the TracRac sliding rack systems like # TA21510-03 for 6-3/4-foot beds and # TA21010-03 for 8-foot beds. There are certain compatible combinations of tonneau cover and ladder rack but the design of the Pro MX means there is probably not going to be enough room to add any ladder rack. Some tonneau covers install inside the bed rails, rather than on top of them, and...

  • Is the Reese Elite Rail Adapter # RP30156 Compatible with Fifth Wheel Hitch and Slider # RP30083
  • If the slider on your Reese 5th Wheel Hitch and Slider part # RP30083 is black then it is the older style slider that is not compatible with the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156. If the round tubes of the slider are silver then it is the newer style slider that is compatible.

  • Gas Shocks to Improve Ride in Triple-Axle 5th Wheel Toy Hauler Trailer
  • I called my contact at Lippert about the Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit, part # LC281281 for your Keystone Raptor. They told me if you have 3 inch axles on your toy hauler, these would help make the ride a lot smoother. They also told me that if you are planning on using these they do suggest using them on all three axles. This is assuming you do not have air suspension on your trailer. These would not work with air suspension systems. If you have 2-3/8 inch diameter axles, the system...

  • Installing Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2014 Ford F350 Dually w/ Factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck towing Prep Pkg
  • Since you have the pucks pre-installed, you won't need the install kit or anything else. You would simply remove the covers over the pucks in your truck bed and drop in an Elite Series fifth wheel hitch like the # RP30142 for an 18K capacity or the # RP30143 for a 25K capacity. B&W also offers the Companion, part # BWRVK3300 which has a 20K capacity that would also drop right into the pucks installed in your truck bed. An adapter like the # RP30156 would allow you to use a regular fifth...
