Video Transcript for Andersen Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters AM3109 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number AM3109. These are the safety chains for a Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapters. Safety chains are going to be a necessary precaution when you are towing. They're going to attach to your Ranch Hitch Coupler Adapter when installed on a 5th-Wheel trailer. They're going to work with both the straight and offset models. It's going to include everything you see on the table, so you're going to get the safety chain, and the mounting brackets, the hooks, all the necessary hardware for a complete installation. The product's made in the U.S.A.

The chain and the hooks are going to be made from a steel construction. They're going to have a nice chromate finish to resist rust and corrosion. It's going to be a Grade 70 chain that has a link diameter of 5/16 of an inch. They're going to have the forged steel hooks. These have the nice safety latch design to it, so it's going to prevent accidental disconnecting. When I took a measurement from the center of the bolt, I stretched the chain out from the center of the bolt to the center of the hook area.

That gave us a measurement of about 36 inches long, that's going to be the same on either side. These chains have been tested, and they meet the standards for up to 18,000 pounds when it comes to the capacity. The setup, simply clamps around the Ranch Hitch Coupler, and it's going to provide two chains that have the hooks at the ends. That simply attaches to the safety chain loops in the bed of your truck. To show you, on each side we're going to have the same components. You're going to have your chain, you're going to have your bolt, lock nut, and then your spacers.

You need to make sure that it goes through the link, the spacer goes on each side of that link in the chain, and then you tighten the lock nut all the way down. You're adapter portion is going to fit right inside that clamp. Very simple installation, and it's ready to go right out of the box. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3109. This is the safety chain kit for the Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter from Andersen. .

  • Will Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter Fit Gooseneck Coupler
    The Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3100 measures 4-1/2 inches in diameter on the outside and the Safety Chains # AM3109 fit around the adapter, as you can see in the accompanying photo. So as long as your gooseneck coupler has a 4-1/2 inch outer tube the chains will fit around it.

  • Where To Hook Safety Chains, # AM3109, On 2004 Ford F-250, F-350 Super Duty
    On the Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, # AM3109, the one end will clamp around the shank of the adapter and the hooks on the other end of the chain should hook to the safety chain U-bolts in the bed of your truck. Sometimes the U-bolts lay flat on the truck bed on each side of the gooseneck ball and are spring loaded, so you might not see them. You have to pull the U-bolts up from the bed to attach the chain. If you do not have the U-bolts on your...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Trailer Safety Chains
    For a general-purpose safety chain for a standard gooseneck trailer we offer # FCHA0050324 from Fulton. This is a 42-inch Grade 70 chain with 5/16-inch clevis. This is sold as a single chain, not a pair. The 36-inch safety chains included with Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3109 are similar to chains like # RM3230 which include the D-rings needed to attach them. This item is intended for use with that specific adapter. We also have the Tow Ready Safety Chain...

    For a general-purpose safety chain for a standard gooseneck coupler like the Bulldog part # BD1289020300 we offer # FCHA0050324 from Fulton. This is a 42-inch Grade 70 chain with 5/16-inch clevis. This is sold as a single chain, not a pair. Most people will weld the chain to the trailer or some will bolt it on. The part # AM3109 is designed for use on a Ranch Hitch adapter and was not intended for use on standard couplers.

  • Is Tires Getting Pulled To the Side on Triple Axle Trailer Around Tight Turns Normal
    What you are experiencing is tire scrubbing and is totally normal on a triple axle trailer. When you might a tight turn with a triple axle trailer some of the tires are going to be pulled to the side. There's really no way around that with a triple axle trailer. Make sure the tires are inflated to their max psi and you'll be good.

    Which U bolts you will need, depends on the manufacturer of your gooseneck hitch. If you have Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch, you will need Safety-Chain U-Bolt Kit for Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch, part # C113. If you have a Reese or Draw-Tite Remov-A-Ball Goosneck Hitch, you will need Replacement U-Bolt Safety Chain Kit for Remov-A-Ball Gooseneck Hitch, part # 6308.

  • Safety Chain Recommendation for Use with Ranch Hitch # AM3139
    The Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, # AM3109 that you referenced were designed for the same capacities as the Ranch Hitch, # AM3139 that you have installed on your trailer. As long as you aren't exceeding the capacity for the # AM3139 the safety chains, if needed, would have enough capacity for you. If you are referring to the safety chains that are on a gooseneck trailer, then yes those too have enough capacity.

  • How to Select Safety Chains for Use with Agricultural Trailers
    Safety chains should be selected by first confirming the weights of the two trailers when they are fully loaded. Next you will determine the length you need for the two ends to reach the trailer and truck without dragging on the ground. For example, Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains # RM3230 is a pair of 35-inch chains with 3-1/2-inch levis hooks, D-rings and hardware. These are rated for 24,000-lbs. These and other chains can be seen by clicking on the link provided.

  • Installing Safety Chains to Andersen Ranch Adapter
    The Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, part # AM3109 are extremely easy to install. The bracket would simply clamp around the outer sleeve of the unit, using the supplied grade 8 bolts. No torque rating is specified, but the folks at Andersen I spoke with said that 100 foot pounds would be fine.

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Adapter to Tow the Trailer with a Gooseneck Hitch in a 2014 Ram Short Bed
    We don't carry a Reese adapter in that style but I do have a solution for you. Since your 2014 Ram is a short bed I suggest the Andersen # AM3139 adapter because it has an offset. The offset will help with clearance when executing sharp turns. If you also need the safety chains to work with the adapter use # AM3109.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter for a Short Bed Truck
    As long as you have a standard extended pin box that does not measure to be more than 24" long (see photo) then I recommend using the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter part # AM3139. This adapter has an 8" offset which will be ideal for short bed trucks. It also has 3" of vertical adjustments if you will be towing with multiple vehicles. The adapter is very easy to install which should take around an hour but you will need the slide hammer part # AM3103 for installation....

  • Chucking Experienced With 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter
    The attachment point between the fifth wheel king pin and the Ranch Hitch adapter is very tight. Threaded collars attach to the king pin, then the black adapter base threads onto the collars. The upper flange on the black adapter will actually bolt to the underside of the fifth wheel pin box. There will be no movement there. Any movement or chucking will be experienced at the point where the adapter attaches to the gooseneck ball. The chucking would be about what you would experience...

  • 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...

    You will need to check with your local laws on what is required with your setup. But typically if the vehicle has a gooseneck hitch safety chains will be required.

  • Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for Recessed Hitch Ball on a Ford F-350 Flatbed
    I do have a few options for you but none of our Anderson 5th wheel trailer hitches will work with a recessed gooseneck hitch. Instead, I recommend taking a look at the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter part # CAB-C5G or the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter part # AM3100. The Convert-A-Ball will require an opening on the truck bed where the hitch ball is located of around 7" long x 7" wide and the Ranch Adapter will require around 5-1/2"...

  • Is the Convert-A-Ball 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Bolted or Welded Onto the Trailer
    The Convert-A-Ball 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter, # CAB-C5G, does not require welding, bolting it into place will be secure. Adding an adapter is meant to be more temporary than permanent which is why welding is not needed. The Ranch hitch, # AM3100, also bolts on but has more mounting hole options that the Covert-A-Ball. This adapter also has a higher pin weight capacity at 6,000 pounds so I would recommend it. You will also need some safety chains, # AM3109.

  • Do 5th Wheel Trailers Require the Use of Safety Chains
    No, 5th wheel trailer connections do not require safety chains. Consumer 5th wheel applications connect to the truck the same way that big rigs connect to trailers and this is considered a secure enough connection to not require safety chains. Items that connect to a ball do require safety chains. So if you are using the Ranch Hitch adapter # AM3139 as an example, you would need safety chains. You can then use the safety chain attachment, # AM3109. You can also check the laws in your...

  • Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Trailer hitch Adapter Recommendation for a 2007 Dodge Ram Short Bed
    Measuring is going to be very important when determining the safest way to tow a fifth wheel trailer. The first step is to make sure that the trailer can be used with an adapter. Some 5th wheel manufactures state not to. Once you have verified you can use an adapter, you will need to measure for height needed by backing the truck under the trailer as if you were going to hook up. Make sure both trailer and truck are on flat, level ground. Measure from the top of the ball to the bottom...

  • Are Safety Chains Required When Using a 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Adapter
    A gooseneck trailer, or in this case a converted 5th wheel trailer using Ranch Hitch, # AM3139, will still need safety chains as if required by law in the states you will be traveling. You will need to check with the Department of Transportation for your state and where you will be traveling to determine the specific requirements as they may vary from state to state. There is a set of chains made specifically to go with the Ranch Hitches. Take a look at the Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
    Some trailer manufacturers will void a warranty if an adapter is used. This is the biggest con if trying to determine pros and cons. You will need to contact the trailer manufacturer to determine if the trailer warranty will be voided if an adapter is used. If the trailer has a Lippert chassis then I recommend using a Goose Box adapter because when used with a Lippert chassis and pin box, it will not void the warranty. There are 2 Goose Box units available. First is # RP94716. It is...

    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...

  • 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...

    Yes, there are fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapters and we do carry them. Gooseneck hitches are typically used to haul construction or agricultural trailers and fifth-wheel hitches are mainly used to haul campers. Gooseneck hitches are usually rated to haul 25,000 to 30,000 pounds, some fifth-wheel hitches are capable of doing the same, but other fifth-wheel hitches are rated lower. When towing, your towing setup is only as strong as the weakest towing component, whether it is your hitch,...

  • How Much Clearance is Needed Around a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Ball for Toolboxes
    The amount of clearance you will need around the gooseneck ball is going to depend on the trailer coupled to it. If you were using the Ranch Hitch adapter # AM3100 to tow a 5th wheel trailer using the gooseneck hitch then at the widest point, where it attaches to the ball, is 5-1/2 inches. So you would need more than 5-1/2 inches all the way around (measured from the center of the ball) if using this adapter. I would say if you had 6-1/2 inches all the way around that would allow for enough...

  • Will Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter Fit Recessed Gooseneck Ball on Flatbed
    You can use the Convert-A-Ball adapter # CAB-C5G with your flat bed and gooseneck hitch that is recessed below that plate. The 16 inch square opening is more than enough for the adapter. The adapter has a pin weight capacity of 4,000 pounds and towing capacity of 20,000 pounds. If you need more capacity I recommend the Ranch Hitch # AM3100 and safety chains # AM3109. It has a pin weight capacity of 6,000 pounds and gross trailer weight capacity of 24,000 pounds.

    With a lifted truck, it will be a tight fit, but I may have a couple of options for you. First, take a look at the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, # 9480. This will fit a B and W Turnover style gooseneck hitch. The hitch height is adjustable from 14-1/4 inches to 18 inches. You will need to measure from the bottom of the pin box (not the king pin) to the top of the bed to determine if this height is too much or not enough. Another option is a 5th wheel to gooseneck...
