Video Transcript for Review of Andersen Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters Parts - Safety Chain Kit - RM3230

Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're taking a quick look at the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chain Kit. This gives you everything that you need to replace the bolts on your coupler or your king pin coupler, to make sure that you get these attachment points that gives you a place to locate your clevis hooks or the shackles to attach your chains from your trailer to your vehicle. It's always a good idea to have safety chains are there as a backup, just in case there's anything that goes wrong, in case there's an accidental disconnect. So you have that secondary system to hold everything together while you get to safety and make sure that everything is taken care of. So let's look a little closer at each thing and talk a little bit more about what comes with the kit.

So we'll have our two chains. One end has our big clevis hook there.This is a 5/16th inch clevis hook with the forged steel, has a nice coating on it to help protect from rust or corrosion. The other end is just a link. So you can use the shackles that this comes with to attach it either to the point on your vehicle, safety chain loops on your vehicle or to these eyelets there. It doesn't really matter which way you do it just as long as each is attached securely or each end of the chain is attached securely.

So one end of the shackle is threaded. So you want to make sure you put it through there. These are going to be a half inch shackle. Our chains measure at 32 and a half inch long with the hook in place. Just the chain by itself is 35 inches long.

The break strength that this kit is rated for is 24,000 pounds although the safe working load limit is 4,700 pounds or 4,700 pounds.That's pretty much all there is to it. One last thing I want to tell you for the install. Whenever you're putting these in place, you do have to replace the bolts in that coupler pit assembly. And for the one that's going on the side with your remote cable release, you want to make sure you put it through with this guy away from that. So you don't block it or cause any interference between the two.That's very much everything we have to talk about with the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chain Kit.

I hope this video has been helpful for looking at this kit to make sure it's what you need. We do have a lot of other towing accessories and other truck accessories in general here at etrailer.com. So check them out. Thanks for watching.

Want to avoid any issues with state regulations while traveling across country. Also thought it was a good idea to have extra protection for ourselves and others on the road. I have had others tell me if their camper suddenly detached, they would prefer to have it as far away from them as possible. Not me, I could not imagine endangering innocent drivers.

Extremely fast shipping, can't wait to get them installed on our new RV.


Comments
Chains work as they should. Gold color is holding tight, but one link is starting to rust. Strange as the bed cover is always on and I usually take the hitchchains out when not towing.

I have purchased a lot from etrailer and this will not deter me from future purchases with them. This package was poorly packaged and arrived with the top having been TAPED OVER TWICE. I did NOT open this package at all to see if all the contents were still there. I phoned your customer service for a Return Authorization. This is very unusual for etrailer and the first poorly packaged item I have received from etrailer. I will still do business with them in the future.

Just what we needed to finish ultimate hitch installation. As usual, great service from trailer folks.

Simple installation. Great addition for the hitch.

Every piece of this kit is heavy duty and seems high quality. I haven't towed with it yet but can't imagine that anything could break it. I will say that it comes with the bolt already screwed into the eye and it's not easy to take apart. Was able to use a lot of leverage to get it apart without damage. I recommend this product.

This was an excellent choice for stable, reliable and ease of use hitch. Very easy to hook up in many directions. Would recommended this hitch.

I received the Andersen Ultimate hitch and Safety chain kit on Wednesday. This hitch is fantastic! It slid right into my existing standard rails and the coupler went on as easy as advertised. I have a 2016 Ram 2500 short bed and Grand Design Reflection 337RLS. I had a Curt E16 with the slider and would have to use the slider for tight maneuvers. I no longer have to worry about it. I now have plenty of clearance and I don't have to get out of the truck to engage the slide. I also like that I shed about 100 lbs of weight in the bed by making the switch. The ride is noticeably smoother and quieter. Great product. I

Bought the chain kit as a "just incase it's a legally required anywhere I tow" and it's perfectly as described and expected. Installs easily just like the rest of the hitch, and does everything it's supposed to do. Still loving the hitch too, it pretty well stays in my truck since I hardly use the bed. It has been the best solution to give me options on how to configure to allow me to pull a 5th wheel camper with a mega cab ram, that is also ram box equipped.



- RM3230
by:

Fast and good service. Chain kit was the right part and it was in stock.

by:

Since some states require safety chains for gooseneck type hitches and the Andersen Ultimate is kind of a hybrid I thought I’d error on the side of caution and get the safety chains.

Great quality and arrived just as descibed. If you tow a 5er these are great safety chains. Some states require these chains. The are designed to be used with the Anderson Ultimate Hitch.....which BTW is another great product

Fantastic delivery. I ordered this safety chain kit for my 5th wheel camper on Thursday and the package was delivered on the following Monday. This is an exceptional quality set of safety chains. I am sure if these ever had to come into play, something else would break before the chains ever broke down.

by:

The safety chains for the Andersen Ultimate 5th wheel connection are just as stated - very heavy-duty safety chains with the replacement bolts for the pin adapter. I was surprised at how heavy they are. I was shocked at the price when I looked for the rail-mount loops to connect the chains to the truck bed. For now, I am looping the chains around the rear legs of the hitch...

by:

These Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains are heavy on the duty! I purchased these for towing an all steel horse trailer with a Reese gooseneck hitch. Nothing is more important than the safety of my horses and I can rest easy knowing that these safety chains will do the job if it ever becomes necessary.



- RM3230

It's chains and eyebolts, so all I can review is how easy it was to order and how Super Fast it shipped. Always happy with etrailer - they have always gone out of their way to help.

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Accessories and Parts

  • Do I Need Safety Chains for My Andersen Ultimate Hitch in California
    According to California Towing Code #29003: Every hitch, drawbar, coupler or other connection between motor vehicles towing must be securely attached to the vehicle and be strong enough to handle the weight of whatever you are towing. So, you will need safety chains like the # RM3230 which are designed for use with your Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel hitch # AM3200

  • Safety Chain Loops that Can Fit Ram Rail Kit and Andersen Ultimate Safety Chain Kit
    We've test fit the safety chains of the # RM3230 on the safety chain loops part # C60617 which fits the factory rail kit of the 2015 Ram 3500 that you have and found they fit really well. These would be wide enough to not interfere with the rail kit of your truck as well as an Andersen Ultimate.

  • How Does Andersen Hitch Safety Chains Attach to Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Connection
    The safety chains for # AM3200 are # RM3230. The two eyelet bolts included with the safety chains will replace the king pin coupler bolts that ship with the Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection. The other ends with the hooks will need to attach to the 5th wheel rails using safety chain loops such as # C16000.

  • Break Strength Rating of Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains RM3230
    The breaking strength of the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains # RM3230 according to my tech contact at Andersen is the 24,000-lb figure shown on this item's page. He also quoted a working load limit (WLL) of 4700-lbs.

  • Andersen Ultimate Hitch and Safety Chain Connections in 2017 Ford F-250
    Andersen does have a safety chain kit for their Ultimate setup. For that you would want the part # RM3230. The Andersen Ultimate # AM3225 would cover up the pucks of the factory rail kit of a 2017 Ford F-250 though. For a hitch a much better solution would be the B and W Hitch part # BWGNRK1116.

  • Are Safety Chains Required to Tow 5th Wheel Trailer with Gooseneck Adapter
    State laws for trailer safety chains do vary a bit. In Indiana safety chains are required when pulling a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch and any adapter. You may prefer to use chains like # RM3230 just for their safety margin, even if not required, to avoid any potential issues as you're travelling. 5th wheel trailers do not require safety chains but gooseneck trailers generally do.

  • Safety Chains to Fit Ram 3500 Factory Prep Tow Loops
    Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains # RM3230 have clevis hooks that can attach to a point up to 3/4-inches. I test-fitted these hooks on the Curt Safety Chain Loops for Ram Prep # C60617 here in our warehouse. The hook itself fits over the loop but the spring-loaded keeper does not have enough room to close fully. We have found that the safety chains part # FCHA0070324 will fit the loops. This chain, which is sold as a single chain not as a set, is slightly longer too at about 47-inches...

  • Safety Chains for 7000-lb Car Hauler Trailer
    As with any other item on a trailer, such as tires, wheels, winches or jacks, when selecting safety chains you want to ensure a good safety margin, in other words, you want to use an item that has a good bit more capacity than you will actually need. I suggest the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit with Clevis Hooks, part # 49150, which is a set of two 44-inch chains with mounting hardware.

  • Replacing Safety Chains on 18K Goose Neck Trailer
    If you do not have access to a welder to remove the old chain and install a new one you might use the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains # RM3230 that you referenced. These can install without welding since they include two clevis D-ring connectors. These are rated for 24,000-lbs. The clevis hardware will allow you to attach them, without welding, to the existing loops.

  • What Has to Be Removed to Install the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains
    I attached a set of very detailed instructions for the Andersen safety chain kit part # RM3230 that you referenced. Basically you will have to remove the block that attaches to the king pin of your trailer so that you can remove the two coupler bolts that hold it to the king pin and replace with the bolts that come with this kit that have the loops for the safety chain attachment. I attached a review video for this kit as well.

  • What is Weight Capacity of Andersen Safety Chains # RM3230
    The Andersen safety chains part # RM3230 that you referenced have a capacity of 24,000 lbs. If the weight of your trailer is less than that this will work well as a safety chain that won't break.

  • Will Andersen Safety Chains Fit Curt Ram Safety Chain Loops
    Yes the hooks of the Andersen Safety Chain set part # RM3230 will fit the safety chain loops of the Curt kit part # C60617 that you also mentioned. As far as length these are 38-1/2 inches long which should work pretty easily as well.

  • Are Safety Chains Required with Andersen Ultimate # AM3200
    It's kind of a gray area whether safety chains are required with the # AM3200 but I would say it's a smart idea either way. The safety chains for # AM3200 are # RM3230. The two eyelet bolts included with the safety chains will replace the king pin coupler bolts that ship with the Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection. The other ends with the hooks will need to attach to the 5th wheel rails using safety chain loops such as # C16000.

  • 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.

    The Andersen Ultimate 5th wheel connection # AM3200 mounts in industry standard above the bed rails. The rails in the kits you have mentioned all have industry standard rails so the Andersen adapter will fit any of them. But out of the options I recommend # RP50082-58 because it is the only one that does not require drilling into the frame to install the brackets. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation of this kit for you. The general rule is that if a trailer...

    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.

  • 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 Curt X-5 Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Rails Adapter Plate # C16210 and Blue Ox Diamond Hitch - Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch DH1204 are not compatible due to the design of the shank on the gooseneck ball. I may have a solution for you however. Take a look at the Demco Recon Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter, part # DM8550045. It clamps onto the gooseneck ball in the truck and provides a fifth wheel hitch. Please note that some trailer manufacturers will void a warranty if an adapter is used.

What you have in your 2013 GMC Sierra is just a gooseneck hitch and not the same thing as the factory prep package. This means that hitch # C16545-16025 will not fit.

I have included a link to an FAQ article that covers the various options for adapter that you could use. The best and most secure is going to be a replacement pin box that has a gooseneck coupler on it, called a Goose Box. However, the trailer would have to have one of the following pin boxes...
