Video Transcript for Andersen Accessories and Parts RM3230 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RM3230, these are the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains. Safety chains act as a safety system to connect the towing application, in this case your fifth wheel, to the towing vehicle and they come into play in the event of a disconnection. These chains are going to be road tested and they meet all current requirements. Very quick installation. The overall length of the chain with the attached clevis hook is going to measure 38-1/2 inches, just the chain itself is going to measure 35 inches long. They're going to offer a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds and I have everything that comes with this part number laid out on the table.

You're going to get 2 chains, each chain's going to have the safety hook attached to each end. You're going to get 2 shackles, as well as 2 eyelet bolts. The 2 eyelet bolts are going to replace the king pin coupler bolts that ship with the ultimate fifth wheel version rail and gooseneck version. To get everything installed, you're going to need to remove the 2 coupler bolts that attach the ultimate king pin coupler to your king pin and replace them with your eyelet bolts. These are going to be your tie down points or your connection points. Be sure not to place the eyelet end of the bolt next to the remote latch connector.

Once you have these installed and once you've reinstalled the king pin coupler block, you would then insert the safety chain clasp. That's going to be the shackle right here with the screw pin. You would attach this clasp around this port right here and then you would also place in the end link on each chain. Then you would attach that by replacing the screw pin. Once you have those installed, to finish you would attach the chain hooks to the safety loops in the bed of your tow vehicle. You can see here that the chains have a nice protective finish on it to prevent them from rust and corrosion.

That's why it has that yellow or brass tint to it. The link on the chain is going to measure 5/16 of an inch, it's going to be grade 70. The hooks right here are made from a forged steel construction. They're very strong and durable and they have the safety latch on there to prevent accidental disconnection. The diameter of our shackles, these are going to measure 3/8 of an inch.

Again, steel construction, very strong an durable as well as the bolt's steel construction. They're going to be strong and durable as well. That's going to do it for part number RM3230, these are the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains. .

Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains - RM3230

by: Rick S.08/10/2017


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 423192

The product is very well made, of high quality, and made by the manufacturer of the hitch I purchased. Given it is a safety device, these were all important factors to me. I got 2nd Day Shipping due to a possible time sensitive need. The product actually was received 3 days after shipping, which was OK as I allowed for an extra day contingency when ordering. I've used etrailer on several occasions and they have always provided good service, required consultation, great products and fast shipping. 330342

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. 423270

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... 232318

Customer service was excellent. They responded immediately when I had a shipping question and product was received on time. They followed up to ensure they were received. The safety chains and king pin box replacement eye-bolts worked as advertised along with the Andersen hitch they were purchased for. Installation was very simple and no problems were noted. 357876

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. 318929

Purchased it because of a trip to Indiana and from what I have read it's required. Went on without any issues, if I was to change anything it would to have included the torque specifications, luckily I still had my original installation instructions. 420546

Patrick, torque specs may be found in the instructions here:

Just extra assurance to have the safety chains. There are some states that require safety chains be used on towing of any kind. Better safe than sorry! They are stylish gold and maintain their finish and color. Very happy with the whole product. 318604

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • 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 # RP94622. It is...

  • 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...

  • Adapter for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Flip-Over Brand Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, # 9480, is designed to only work with B and W Turnover Ball hitches, Hide-A-Goose by Reese or Draw-Tite, or Under-Bed by Bulldog. What you can use with your gooseneck hitch is the Andersen Ranch Hitch, # AM3100. I have included a link to a video review for you. I also recommend the safety chain kit # AM3109. I have also included a link to an FAQ article on towing a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck trailer hitch.

  • 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.

  • Will Curt X-5 Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Rails Adapter Plate Hook into Blue Ox Gooseneck Plate
  • 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 Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection - Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter, # AM3225. It clamps onto the gooseneck ball in the truck and provides an adapter so the king pin on the trailer fits the ball on the adapter. I have linked...

  • 5th Wheel Installation Kit for a 2002 Ford F-350 and Andersen 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter
  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Gooseneck & 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter to Reduce Pin Weight on a 2015 Chevrolet 2500 Diesel
  • If you get a gooseneck hitch for your 2015 Chevrolet 2500 Diesel like the B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck # BWGNRK1012, I recommend, you will need the Andersen Ultimate # AM3225 not the # AM3200 you were looking at. This is because the # AM3225 is compatible with the gooseneck hitch while the one you were looking at is compatible with the 5th wheel hitch rail kit. If you go with the Andersen Ultimate # AM3225 which weighs 75lbs you will save yourself about 202lbs compared to a sliding 5th...

  • 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.

  • Adapter to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch in a Ford F-350
  • There are specific adapters that you can use to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck hitch, but coupler # BD0289250300 is just a gooseneck trailer coupler and cannot be used for this purpose. 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...

  • 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.

  • Adapting a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • You have a couple options for adapters though some trailer manufacturers will void a warranty if an adapter is used. You will need to contact the trailer manufacturer to determine if the trailer warranty will be voided if an adapter is used. One option is the Andersen Ultimate connection # AM3225. It clamps onto the gooseneck ball in the truck and provides an adapter so the king pin on the trailer fits the ball on the adapter. I have linked a video for you view on this adapter. You can...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Curt Gooseneck Trailer Hitch in a 2013 GMC Sierra 3500
  • Curt Q24 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16545-16025 is designed to fit GM trucks with the OEM 5th wheel prep package which was not available until the 2016 model year. 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. But not to worry because you can still tow a 5th wheel trailer without having to replace the gooseneck hitch in your truck. Instead you can use that gooseneck...
