Andersen Accessories and Parts - AM3103

This slide hammer is an optional tool for installation of the Ranch Hitch fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapter. It makes it easier to seat the inner threaded collar around the trailer king pin.


Features:

  • Works with Ranch Hitch 5th-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapter, both straight and offset models (AM3100 and AM3139)
  • Allows easy installation of the adapter, even by inexperienced do-it-yourselfers
  • Made in the USA
  • 1-Year limited warranty

The slide hammer is used to pull the threaded collar over the split collar halves that surrond the king pin on the trailer. The adapter base of the Ranch Hitch fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck adapter then screws on to the threaded collar.

Although not required for installation, the slide hammer makes the process quicker and easier because it reduces physical exertion and helps to seat the collar properly. A pulley puller can be used in place of the slide hammer.

  • Installation Instructions for Anderson Fifth-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3100
  • The Anderson Fifth-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, part # AM3100, installs in about an hour on standard fixed 5th wheel pin boxes to adapt them for towing with a gooseneck hitch. Anderson does not recommend it for use with a cushioned pin box. This adapter fits a standard 2-5/16-inch gooseneck ball and is rated for up to 24,000 lbs GVWR and up to 6,000 lbs tongue weight. It provide a vertical adjustment range of 3 inches (from 11-3/4-inches to 14-3/4 inches height) and is fitted...

  • Will the B and W Companion 5th Wheel Hitch Fit a Curt Gooseneck Hitch
  • We have fifth wheel adapter options for Curt gooseneck hitches, but adapters like the Companion or the Hi-Rise will not work with Curt gooseneck hitches. The B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch is only compatible with B and W gooseneck hitches, so it will not work with a Curt gooseneck hitch. Turnoverball is actually a trademark of B and W, but Curt does have the Folding Ball Gooseneck Hitch, # C-52. If this is the hitch you have, then I recommend using a fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck adapter...

  • How Does Andersen # AM3139 Ranch Hitch Attach to Fifth Wheel King Pin
  • Take a look at the photos I've provided, which will give you a clearer idea of how the adapter would connect to the fifth wheel king pin. The threaded collar would slip over the king pin, and would be slid up all the way. The split collet is placed in the groove on the king pin, and the threaded collar would slip down over the collet. A gear puller or the # AM3103 slide hammer is used to seat the collar on the collet. The # AM3139 adapter would then thread onto the collar. The flange...

  • Converting a Fifth Wheel Trailer to Be Used with a Gooseneck Hitch In a Shortbed Ford F-250 Truck
  • The best way to convert a fifth wheel trailer to the gooseneck hitch setup in your short bed Ford F-250 is to use the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter w/8 inch Offset for Short-Bed Trucks, item # AM3139. This is a semi permanent installation that works very well. If your truck has a bed shorter than 6 feet, you will need to measure to be sure that you will have enough clearance for maneuvering and pitch and roll of the trailer before deciding to order the...

  • Can Anderson Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # AM3139 Be Used on Multiple Trailers
  • The Anderson Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, part # AM3139, can be used on multiple trailers. It does not need to be a permanent mount adapter. It does use a threaded collar to install and remove the adapter to the king pin of the fifth wheel. If the collar will be removed and installed on multiple trailers it is recommended to also purchase the Anderson Slide Hammer, part # AM3103. This slide hammer will help save time in the installation and removal of the threaded...

  • Gooseneck To 5th Wheel Adapter For A 2017 Nissan Titan XD
  • I called my contact at Curt Manufacturing and they informed me that a base plate adapter for a gooseneck to 5th wheel hitch for your 2017 Nissan Titan will not be available until the end of July 2017. In the meantime, if you would like to haul a 5th wheel trailer with your currently installed gooseneck, you will want the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter part # AM3100. This adapter has a weight capacity of 24,000 lbs for gross trailer weight (GTW) and 6,000...

  • Adapter to Tow Fifth Wheel with Curt Quick Goose # C60630
  • We offer several different adapters that would allow you to pull a fifth wheel trailer with a truck that is equipped with a gooseneck hitch. As I do not have any information about your truck, I will run through the various alternatives that might work for you. If you have not already installed the gooseneck hitch, you will be better off using a fifth wheel hitch installed on rails in your truck bed, and using a gooseneck adapter like part # 49080 that would install on the fifth wheel...

  • What Fifth Wheel Adapter is Needed for a 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 With Factory Gooseneck?
  • It may be possible for you to use an adapter, though you'd need to take some measurements first, so you'll have to wait until delivery of your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500. Also, keep in mind the use of a coupler adapter may void the warranty on your trailer, so be sure to contact the manufacturer beforehand. If the use of a coupler adapter does void the warranty, will not fit, or you simply decide to go in another direction, there are other options I'll go over for you. As for the measurements,...

  • How to Remove # AM3100 Ranch Hitch Universal 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Coupler Adapter
  • To remove the Ranch Hitch # AM3100, you'd remove the bolts attaching the flange to the pin box. At that point, use a spanner wrench like part # AM3104 to unscrew the adapter base. Once the base comes off, you'll need a slide hammer like part # AM3103 to push up the threaded collar, at which point the split collets will come out. Then the threaded collar can be slipped off the king pin.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter for a 1996 Ford F-250
  • The Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G offers cushioning for a smoother ride and is the most popular fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter we offer, with the other standard option being the Ranch Hitch Universal Adapter # AM3100. Keep in mind that not all trailers are rated for use with these adapters, so you would need to contact your trailer's manufacturer to find out. Before choosing any adapter, there will be a couple of measurements you need to take, starting with the correct height for your adapter....

  • Lock Compatible With Ranch Hitch Gooseneck Coupler Adapter
  • The Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3100 does not have an integrated lock. You can always add components like the Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3109 and the Blaylock EZ Lock for Set Screw on Gooseneck Coupler - Aluminum # BLTL-51-40D. To lock when disconnected, I recommend the Master Lock Universal Heavy-Duty Coupler Lock for Gooseneck, Fifth Wheel and Lunette Ring Trailers # 2989AT. You may be interested in...

  • Will Ranch Hitch Adapter AM3100 Work on a 2002 Jayco Qwest 5th-Wheel Trailer
  • The fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapter # AM3100 is designed for the industry standard 2 inch king pin. It is fairly easy to be certain it will fit, however, by taking some measurements on the 2002 Jayco Qwest trailer. You can perform these steps to determine if the adapter will work for your fifth-wheel trailer. 1. Pull the truck into position as if you were hooking up to the trailer, making sure that the truck and trailer are level. 2. Measure from the pin box to the top of the...

  • Recommended Adapter To Tow Fifth Wheel Camper With Gooseneck Hitch
  • Since you have a gooseneck installed in your truck bed, I recommend using an adapter like the Andersen Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, part # AM3100. This attaches to the king pin on the fifth wheel trailer and slips over the gooseneck ball in the bed of the truck. You will need to make sure you watch for clearance when executing turns. With the short bed truck bed a sharp turn could cause the trailer to hit the truck. This adapter has a capacity of...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Coupler Adapter That Can Work With A Tongue Weight of 5,000 lbs
  • Unfortunately the Reese Goose box 5th wheel # RP94622-61301 will not work because the tongue weight capacity is 3,200 pounds. I recommend the Ranch Hitch fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapter # AM3100. It has a tongue weight capacity of 6,000 pounds and 24,000 pounds towing capacity. A optional slide hammer # AM3103 is a popular option for this Ranch Hitch. It makes it very easy to seat the inner threaded collar around the trailer king pin. I have included a video review and...

  • Will Ranch Hitch Adapter AM3100 Work on 5th-Wheel Trailer
  • The fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapter # AM3100 is designed for the industry standard 2 inch king pin. To see if it is a fit, you will want to take some measurements on your 5th wheel trailer. 1. Pull the truck into position as if you were hooking up to the trailer, making sure that the truck and trailer are level. 2. Measure from the pin box to the top of the ball in the bed of your truck. 3. The measurement should fall between 11-3/4 inches and 14-3/4, which are the retracted and extended...

  • 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....

The Companion slider hitch, # BWRVK3400 which would be more ideal for a short bed truck is not able to work with your 2008 Toyota Tundra Crew Max with 5.5 foot bed. The Companion hitch will give you limited clearance between your truck cab and trailer so you will have...

  • Will the Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter Handle Long Hauls
  • You should have no problem using the Ranch Hitch fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapter, # AM3100 on your trailer during long hauls. This adapter is rated for a gross towing capacity of 24,000 lbs. As long as your pin weight does not exceed 6,000 lbs, you will have no problem. The only times you will really see issues with gooseneck coupler adapters is with unusually long (38 ft or longer) and heavy trailers. In those cases, it is best to have a quality pin box and use a standard...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch to 5th Wheel Trailer Adapter with Offset for 2014 Dodge Ram 3500
  • The Convert-A-Ball Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 allows your goose neck hitch to pull a 5th wheel trailer and provides 7-1/2-inches of offset for better clearance when making turns with short-bed pickups like your 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 short-bed pickup. The Andersen Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapter # AM3139 offers slightly more offset - 8-inches - and is suitable for standard pin boxes (not cushioned or air-ride types).

This adapter has an 8-inch offset and is designed for short-bed trucks. You may want to also consider a slide hammer to ease installation of the inner threaded collar around the trailer king pin.
