Video Transcript for Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2022 Ram 2500

What's up, everybody It's A.J. with etrailer.com Today, we're gonna be checking out the Curt Q20 5th wheel hitch assembly. And today we're putting it on the Curt adapter for the above-bed puck system that comes OEM with this 2022 Ram 2500. Right away we wanna point out that we are in a shorter six foot bed on this Ram. So this would really only work with a longer bed and eight for one just because of it's a static hitch, it's not gonna move around. So it would work with a slider.

You can get it in a kit with that if that's something you need but it will not work with the sidewinder style King Pin. So just keep that in mind. I think this will work great for the eight foot bed. Now today the way we have this set up is since our Ram has the factory under bed puck system, as we use the adapter from Curt and that's gonna go into those pucks and allow you to attach the fifth wheel legs to the adapter itself. That way it's above bed and you can still use this if you already had this assembly.

You just need to get the adapter to use it in your new truck with the pucks. Let's look at how it connects. It's got a two jaw system, which is better than just the one jaw system. Which that usually works but this gives you a complete coverage of the kingpin so you know it's secure in there. It's really easy operate.

We've got the handle here. I'll pull the pin. Pull this back. Even has an indicator on this side that lets you know. So it's green, so it means it's good to tow right now because it would be connected if we had something in there.

So come here, pull the side. We are in red, so that means it's uncoupled and then yellow would be it's coupled. It's ready to go. So when it's in yellow now we back up to the King Pin, it would activate these jaws. I'm gonna show you how the jaws work. This is gonna be a King Pin insert. So we're backing up to the trailer on the King Pin. It gets lined up with the two jaws. Once it hits the jaws and pushes back, they go into place. So that brings the handle in. So now the indicator's gonna be green for ready to tow. You wanna make sure you latch it back just for extra security and then you're ready to hit the road. As far as security goes, you don't have to just use this pin. It's nice as this is included, but sold separately, you can get a padlock run through there and lock this up. That way no one can unlatch this and mess with this when you're not around. When you go to set it up or back it up to your trailer, the head does pivot back and forth so that's gonna help you adjust. If it's slightly off and you're coming in and you don't have to worry about it straight on, it will adjust to you backing in. So I'll show you kind of here. I'll pull it an angle. You might not be able to see much but also pull it in to the side. It still adjusted just fine. You can see it pivots back and forth and can go front and back. So it will adjust as you back that King Pin in. You also get this plate that acts as a barrier on your King Pin. So you put it all the way on there on the bottom and that's gonna protect it against metal on metal contact. So instead it'll hit that plate as it comes in here. Which is gonna keep from scraping everything up. There's also gonna be three points to help add grease to it to keep it moving easily. So there's gonna be one up right on front. There's gonna be on the left side and there's gonna be one on the right side. Another nice thing about this is you can detach the head from the base, which is gonna not only make it lighter but easier to install or remove. So I'm gonna pull the clips on the inside and show you the two pin system. There's one on this side. So you have one on the opposite side. Then you're gonna lift and remove the head out. Now it does resist a little bit, so you will have to pull up. And as I shake it back and forth, it slowly starts to come out. And I can remove that, set it aside, and then remove the base separately. The Q20 is gonna have a gross total weight rating of 20,000 pounds. It's gonna have a vertical load limit of 5,000 pounds. And this does weigh 139 pounds. So if you need help with it, get some help loading into the truck and set in the place. Now you can disassemble it, remove the head to make it a little bit lighter and easier for one person. Installing is really easy. We just drop it off the adapter, line up the tabs with the holes, and it goes right in the place. We'll go underneath and add in our pin and clips. Overall, I think this is a good fifth wheel hitch. Now if you have the eight foot bed, it's gonna be better. Don't recommend it for the six foot bed just because of how limited it is. But the jaws going right around the King Pin, really nice. It's all the way around there. It's gonna take up some of that rattling. The way it adjusts when you back up into it is gonna be really easy to do as well. The handle was easy to pull out. It had the color code here on the side so if you did have a backup camera here or you could see it in the mirror, you could see that it was green and good to go and you're good to tow. Well, I think that does it. Thanks for hanging out and I hope this helped..

2022 Ram 2500

it fit perfectly in my RAM 2500 2022 , it reduce the height by 3.5 inch from my original roller Curt set up, since I have air suspension in the back I will simply said be careful when you disconnect because the back of the pick up spring upward when load is removed. The reason I switch was the high of the roller sytem and the puck was way too high for my fifth wheel.

Fits like a glove. From the time UPS dropped it off it took 45 minutes to have it installed in the truck and we were hooked up to go camping, which we did! Thanks to the team for getting it shipped asap! 2020 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system.

2022 Ram 3500

EASY installation with Ram OEM puck system, needed very little adjusting.



by:

Heavier than expected (95#) shipping weight. Which is a good thing. The description probably said that but I didn’t pay attention. The only warning I would give I’d that this with add 3.25” or so of height to your hitch. If you don’t have the adjustment in your set up you may want to look for something a little lower profile. I’m happy with the purchase and very happy with etrailer. Very fast shipping and good prices.

I quit using it after about the fourth time, too much noise and there was to much play in between the 5th wheel hitch and the adapter



by:
2022 Dodge Challenger

The pin hole alignment was off and took quite a bit of manipulation to get my fifth wheel hitch pins into the pre-drilled holes on the base receiver purchased from etrailer. After an hour and some vigorous encouragement from a hammer, I won't have to worry that the pins will ever work themselves out of the hitch.

Perfect fit, very nice quality product.

  • How Tall is the 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for the Dodge Ram Towing Prep Package?
    I am not sure how tall your bed rails are but the Adapter Rails for the Dodge Ram Towing Prep Package item # C29BR will add 2" to the height of your Anderson hitch. When installed inside your Ram's pucks the adapter sits 2" above your bed.

  • Will PullRite SuperLite 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Curt Adapter Rails for OEM Pucks on 2018 Ram 2500
    PullRite has a few different 5th wheel hitch setups but as long as your PullRite is designed to fit with industry standard rails, or ISR, then the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch # C29BR is exactly what you need for your PullRite to fit with the OEM puck system on your 2018 Ram 2500. It looks like the SuperLite comes in an ISR configuration as well as one that attaches via gooseneck hitch ball so you should be good to go!

  • Do Curt Adapter Rails For Ram 5th Wheel Prep Package Disassemble Into 4 Pieces
    Yes, the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch - Dodge Ram Towing Prep Package # C29BR does disassemble into four pieces, in fact it comes in four pieces initially and you put it together. As for the distances, the width side to side (horizontally, as if measuring between your bed rails) is 39 inches, but front to back (as if measuring between the tailgate and cab) the measurement is 22 inches for the Adapter Rails # C29BR.

  • Are Curt Adapter Rails For Ram Puck System Compatible With Reese 5th Wheel Hitch
    Yes, a Reese 5th wheel hitch will work and is compatible with the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch - Dodge Ram Towing Prep Package # C29BR. The # C29BR just gives you what are essentially industry-standard base rails in the form of an adapter, which is why it will work with Reese hitches.

  • Does 2021 Ram 3500 Short Bed with OEM Rail Kit Need Slider Hitch
    Since most newer fifth wheels have tapered noses to allow for better short bed turning clearance and the short bed of your 2021 Ram 3500 is on the longer side you would not need a slider hitch. So for a somewhat lighter weight fifth wheel hitch that fits the OEM prep package of your 2021 Ram 3500 long bed I would recommend the Curt A20 part # C16044 which weighs 190 lbs. Most are well over 200 so this would be on the lighter end, is very safe, has a very tight jaw design so the ride quality...

  • Mounting Pattern For The Curt CrossWing 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    The Curt CrossWing # C86JR has a 20.5" x 22" center on center mounting pattern. If the adapter you have doesn't fit these dimensions then you can use the adapter # C29BR in order to mount the hitch in your 2020 Ram 3500's puck system.

  • Slider Base For Mopar 30K Fifth Wheel Hitch In A 2018 Ram 3500
    The Curt S25 Slider for A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # C43DR would be compatible with the head of your M30 hitch and provide 12" of travel for additional turning clearance. The downside is that you'll be lowering your overall towing capacity to 25k so you'll want to ensure it's still enough to handle the weight of the trailer. This slider base also requires base rails so if you have the OEM puck system in the bed then you'll also need the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch # C29BR.

  • Comparing Curt E16 and A16 5th Wheel Hitches for a 2022 Ram 2500 with OEM Puck System
    You are correct that you need the Adapter Rails # C29BR to mount a 5th wheel hitch to the OEM puck system on your 2022 Ram 2500. When it comes to comparing the E16 # C16115 and the A16 # C16120, the E16 is a very entry level 5th wheel hitch while the A16 is more of a standard. This is due to the E16 having a simple slide bar jaw system that still allows the king ping to jostle around some and the hitch head cushioning is a bit more basic. The A16 has a dual jaw system that completely...

  • Can Mopar M20 Fifth Wheel Hitch be Converted to Slider Hitch for 2020 Ram 2500 with OEM Prep Pkg
    The Mopar M20 hitch is basically a rebranded Curt Q20 hitch which you could replace the legs of to get a slider hitch with the roller part # C16550 and the Ram rail kit adapter # C16022 and you'd be set to tow with your 2020 Ram 2500 with factory rail kit. There isn't a slider base that would allow you to convert to hitch to something that would fit the rail kit directly.

  • Difference Between The C16022 And C29BR Fifth Wheel Adapters
    Both adapters will fit the puck system in your 2023 Ram 2500. The # C16022 is designed to work only with Curt brand sliding fifth wheel hitches like the # C16541. The # C29BR is more of a universal adapter and can be used with both sliding and fixed fifth wheel hitches. The # C29BR will also work with other brands of fifth wheel hitch such as B&W and Reese. It will work with most fifth wheel hitches designed for industry standard rails. We generally recommend a slider for short bed models,...

This adapter drops right into the pucks for a quick installation. Since you have a 6-1/2' bed you will not be able to make a full 90 degree turn with the Crosswing.
