Curt 5th Wheel Kit Installation - 2014 Ford F-350

Today on our 2014 F350 Super Duty, we'll be installing the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel install kit, part number C16424-204. To begin our install we'll first go ahead and lower and remove the spare tire and then remove both rear wheels. While it's not a required to do this install, it can make it a lot easier and more accessible. We'll move into the pickup bed, we'll need to take one of the base rails set it into the pickup bed and measuring from the end of the bed to the rear edge of the rail as per the instructions to get our length and set the forward base rail into position. Once we have our length, we'll then check our width making sure we're center of the bed. Once we're confident in our measurements we'll go ahead and take a paint marker and mark the four outside attachment points. Then using a small pilot bit we'll go ahead and drill out the center of each attachment point. Note for pickup beds we'll be drilling into bare metal, it's good to center punch first, however, for this application we have a spray in liner so it won't be necessary.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Installation Kit Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F250 Diesel
  • I checked with Husky and the only rail kit they recommend for your 2014 Ford F250 is the Husky Fifth Wheel rail kit part # HT31408-686. Their custom fit kit part # HT31563 is not recommended by them so I cannot recommend it for you. For a similar universal rail kit that has been confirmed to fit your vehicle I would recommend the Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # RP30035. This kit has been confirmed to work with Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Reese, Valley and Husky hitches. Between...

  • Clearance Concerns For Fifth Wheel On 2015 Ford F-350 Super-Duty With 8 Ft Bed
  • I don't think you are going to have an issue with your new 2015 Ford F-350. Since you have a fifth-wheel hitch already installed in your 2006 F-250, the above bed rails will normally sit about 2 inches above the bed of the truck. The adapter I recommend, part # RP30156, measures about 3 inches to the top of the adapter when installed in the pucks on your new truck. That would be a difference of about an inch. This adapter has a weight capacity of 20,000 lbs, and can work with standard...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Options for Heartland Bighorn 3610RE 5th Wheel
  • I typically recommend before attempting to install a hitch on the rear of your 5th wheel, you consult the manufacturer to ensure that the rear structure of the 5th wheel is robust enough to handle the weight of the bike rack and the bikes it carries. I called Heartland, who confirmed that using a hitch on the rear of your 5th wheel is acceptable, but you should not under ANY circumstances use the hitch for towing. Although the capacity of the hitch might be greater, Heartland states that...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch for a 2015 Ford F350 Short Bed with Hitch Prep
  • The Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider # RP30144 that you referenced would be the perfect hitch for you to use on your 2015 Ford F350 crew cab short bed. Since you have a short bed you would need a slider to make tight turns, this hitch has a slider. This hitch also has 18,000 lbs of capacity which would be more than enough for your trailer. Although your trailer claims to have a nose that will allow for tight turns without a slider I would still recommend...

  • Troubleshooting Sidewinder on Fifth Wheel Trailer that Doesn't Straighten Out When Towing
  • If the arm of your Sidewinder is at an angle relative to the head of your fifth wheel hitch the issue is the wedge of the Sidewinder that is supposed to be locking the arm to the hitch head is not doing it's job. I would not recommend you tow anymore until you address this issue. You could be using the wrong wedge for your hitch or it needs to be orientated properly. Check out the installation instructions I attached, around page 7 there are instructions on wedge activation. I also...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Yes, the Curt Hitch part # 13364 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan so I would recommend it for you. Check out the install video I attached. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56150. I attached an install video for you to check out. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.

  • Air Lift Loadlifter Air Helper Spring Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F250 with 3-1/2 inch Lift
  • All you would need to install the Air Lift LoadLifter 5000 Ultimate Air Helper Springs with Internal Jounce Bumpers # AL88396 on your 2014 Ford F250 with a 3-1/2 inch lift kit is the correct lift spacer kit. For that you would need the spacer kit part # AL52140. If your lift is a body lift then the spacers wouldn't be needed. I attached an install video for you to check out as well for the # AL88396.

  • Gooseneck coupler adapter for a 2014 Ford F-250 4 x 4 diesel
  • The Ranch Hitch universal 5th-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapter # AM3139 will have an 8-inch offset to allow more clearance between truck and trailer for short-bed trucks. The offset ranch hitch does not move the pivot point of the trailer so no extra clearance is gained between the truck cab and the 5th wheel overhang. Only the Anderson Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection offers true offset and even then only 5-1/4 inches. Safety chains # AM3109 are a necessary precaution when you are towing....

  • 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...

This is where the rear edge of the front rail will be. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right that show this.

  • Best 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Ford F-350 Short Bed with OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • Since your 2014 Ford F-350 short bed has the OEM prep package and the in-bed wiring, the only thing left you will need is a hitch. If you want a hitch that fits directly in that OEM prep package then you can use Reese Elite slider # RP30144. Otherwise you will have to use an adapter, # RP30156. This will allow you to use a slider hitch that fits in standard above the bed rails such as # RP30870.

  • Installing Rail Mounted Fifth Wheel Hitch on 2014 Ford F350 Equipped with OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • If you have the OEM fifth wheel prep package in your 2014 Ford F350, with the 4 mounting pucks in the truck bed, you'd need an adapter, part # RP30156. The adapter mounts to the pucks in the truck bed, and the Reese # RP30870 fifth wheel hitch would mount to the industry-standard fifth wheel rails provided by the adapter. I've provided some photos for you that shows how the adapter mounts to the pucks and the fifth wheel hitch mounts to the adapter. If by 'factory wiring' you're speaking...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Ford F-250 Crew Cab 4X4 with 2-Inch Leveling Kit and 33-Inch Tires
  • The combination of lift and larger tires on your 2014 Ford F-250 Crew Cab 4X4 may make it difficult to maintain the minimum safe clearances between your truck and 5th wheel trailer. The linked photo will show you the necessary clearance distances at your truck's bedrails, tailgate and bumper. Industry-standard 5th wheel hitch height adjustments generally range from 14- to 18-inches, which is the case for the Reese # RP30869, and my technical contact at Reese advise that even with this...

  • Should a Sidewinder or Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Used on a 2014 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • You have a couple of options. Since your 2014 Ford F-250 is a short bed either a slider hitch or a Sidewinder would be needed to be able to safely make tight turns. Using a Sidewinder will provide a better ride than using a slider hitch. Since you already have a hitch this is the route I recommend. But to determine if there is a Sidewinder that will fit you will need to get the manufacturer and model number of the pin box on the trailer. This information should be on a sticker or plate...

  • Need Air Bag Kit Compatible with Reese # RP50073-58 5th Wheel Hitch in 2014 Ford F-250 SD
  • We offer several rear axle air bag kits for your 2014 Ford F-250 SD with 6-3/4-foot bed. Some of these, as you note, are not compatible with your 5th wheel hitch installation but we do offer a kit from Firestone, their item # F2550, that will work alongside 5th wheel hitch installations with gas engine-equipped trucks. Kit # F2550 will work on both 2WD and 4WD trucks and its installation is shown in the linked video. The Firestone kit includes everything needed for installation and manual...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-250
  • The recommended universal rail kit for your 2015 Ford F250 would be the part # RP30035, this is a 10 bolt kit. There are no 4-bolt kits available that are recommended for your vehicle. The 4-bolt rails are much bigger than the 10-bolt rails. On some vehicles the 4-bolt design will install easier than the 10 bolt design, at the cost of reduced truck bed space. However, I would recommend you install a custom fit rail kit like part # RP50073-58 this will give you the same universal style...

  • Can the EZ Bike Stand be Used to Secure a Bike in a Toy Hauler without the Bike Falling Over
  • There isn't really a way to safely and easily attach the EZ bike stand # EZBIKE so that it wouldn't move around while towing the trailer. Based on that I would not recommend it for use in a travel trailer/toy hauler. I recommend attaching a hanger to the wall of the toy hauler, # S80955. It will be stable and the bike will not fall off (barring any severe bump in the road). I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

  • Hooking Up a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to a Reese Elite Series Hitch in a 2014 Ford F-250
  • You are correct. The Elite Series 5th wheel hitches like # RP30142 will have a little bit of the jaw sticking out. This is normal. You still back the truck up like normal, straight on. What will happen is the king pin will push against the jaw. That will push the jaw in (towards the driver's side) which will also disengage the handle from the open position. Once the king pin is fully in the hitch the jaw will close around it automatically and you can then insert the keeper pin to keep the...

  • Video Request for Installing a Hitch Into Ford Underbed Hitch Prep Package on a 2014 F250
  • To see how to set an Elite Reese hitch into underbed rails just like what you have in your 2014 Ford F250 with Hitch Prep and how to set it up check out the video I attached to the right. You will want to fast forward to the 5:25 mark of the video to see the hitch being installed into the pucks of the rail system. The hitch in this video is part # RP30143 which is a stationary hitch. Since you have a short bed truck you would need the slider version of this hitch part # RP30144.

If you disconnect the harness from your truck port under the dash, check out the wiring on the back of the plug. If you have the correct harness, the wires should be in the same positions the photo shows. If you have wires in different positions, you have the wrong wiring adapter for your vehicle. Although...

The Dee Zee # DZ8556 offers 8.9-cubic-foot capacity, locking stainless steel paddle handles, gas shocks for smooth lid operation and rustproof Brite-Tread aluminum construction.

  • How to Lock Out a Sidewinder, And is A Sidewinder Needed on a 6 ft Bed Ford F350
  • The first step is to remove the wedge that keeps the hitch from rotating at the fifth-wheel hitch in the bed of the truck. You will then need to install two 3/4 inch X 5-1/2 inch grade 5 bolts washers lock washers and nuts in the location at the rear of the turret, see photo. Once these bolts are installed the king pin will rotate in the normal position in the fifth-wheel hitch. Since you have a truck bed shorter than 8 feet I would not recommend you lock out the Sidewinder. I suspect...

  • I spoke with my Superwinch representative, who tells me that the Talon # SW1618200 can mount using a 10 x 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, or a 10 x 6-1/2 pattern, both of which will exactly match the bolt hole spacing of the Curt # C31010 receiver winch mount you're asking about. I've linked you to a diagram showing the bolt hole dimension on the Curt Winch Mount.

If your friend's fifth wheel hitch fits the pucks provided by the Ford prep package, it'll fit the pucks provided by the # RP30138-26 you asked about. For wiring, I'd recommend the Hopkins Endurance # 41157. The wiring harness would plug inline with the wiring harness feeding the...

  • Why Do You Measure In the Truck Bed to Determine Where the Fifth Wheel Rails Will Install
  • The reason you want to measure in the truck bed and drill is so you know where to drill the holes through the truck bed. From the underside of the truck bed there usually isn't room to use the brackets as a template and then drill upwards. So instead you measure and drill in the truck bed and then attach the rails to the brackets on the underside of the bed. I attached the video you referred to.

  • Do Any of the Tube Steps/Nerf Bars Attach to the Frame of a 2014 Ford F-250 Crew Cab
  • All of the tube steps we carry for your 2014 Ford F-250 crew cab, see link to the right, attach to the rocker panel. The frame is too far under the truck. The brackets would have to be so long that stepping on the tube step would produce a lot of torque at the attachment points and could damage the frame.

  • Will a Fisher XV2 Snowplow and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Fit on a 2015 Ford F-350
  • I compared the installation instructions for the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch, # 65049, and the Fisher XV2 Plow for your 2015 Ford F-350 and it appears that it is the same case as the 2009 F-350. The mounting kit for the plow and the hitch install at the same location on the frame and use the same bolt holes. Stacking the brackets is not recommended and would likely void the manufacturers warranties. If a front mount hitch is more important than a plow, then I would recommend using a...
