Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel 16721 Review

Today we're going to review part number 16721. This is the Curt 10-inch 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate. This will protect your 5th wheel hitch in your 5th wheel trailer when you use this Curt Lube Plate. It's a 10-inch diameter disk that will easily slide onto the kingpin of your 5th wheel trailer and eliminates any messy grease deposits and it will reduce normal wear and tear when you're towing your 5th wheel trailer with your 5th wheel hitch. Again, just to measure the diameter for you. Edge to edge it's going to be right at 10 inches and thickness on it is going to be right at about 3/16 of an inch. Just to show you, here's an example of a .. This is what the kingpin would look like on your 5th wheel trailer.

You just install this onto the kingpin itself and then when this installs into the 5th wheel hitch, it will give you a nice protection between your pin box of your 5th wheel trailer and the 5th wheel hitch itself. You remove it just like that. That should do it for the review on part number 16721, the Curt 10-inch 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate. .

Overall a great experience helping me figure out what I needed and assisting with the order. Items arrived when promised and can't wait to get them installed and start using them! Thanks again for all your assistance! 296719

Arraived as specified. Just need to install it. But these are great to eliminate the grease from the Pin Box if you happen to accidentally rub up against it, don’t have to grease my hitch plate either. Still have to grease the jaws, and functioning parts of the hitch, but there’s no grease spatter/dripped all over the hitch, of bed of my truck. I always keep an extra with the trailer in case it decides to crack from wear. Which is rare. But seen how they aren’t that expensive it’s cheap insurance. 501426

We bought a Curt slider hitch 16516 and base rails with bracket kit. Everything was very well constructed. We were very impressed with the product. We installed everything ourselves after watching the video. We highly recommend watching the video. Everything went together without any problems. Very solid hitch. 505567

  • B&W Companion Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500
  • For your 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 the B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3700 is the best option you have for the factory rail kit. The Companion hitches are among the nicest hitches around and are considered by most as the best fifth wheel hitch. This would be a great solution. This also will easily work with a Lippert Trailair pin box. For a B&W Companion hitch I recommend using a 10 inch diameter lube plate. We have the Reese Lube Plate, # RP83002, which is my top choice, and the...

  • For your B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3255, B&W recommends using a 10 inch lube plate like the Reese # RP83002 or the Curt # 16721. This is your best option to prevent scratches on the hitch's skid plate and ease hookup with the trailer. There is not a bolt-on plate like the Reese # 83003 available that will work on the B&W Patriot. In addition to using the lube plate, B&W also recommends lubricating the polyurethane bushings on top of the pivot arms with high grade lithium...

  • How To Choose the Correct Lube Plate
  • Generally speaking, the lube plate will need to cover the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch. There are some pin boxes out there that will recommend a specific lube plate but most of the times this classification will be from the 5th wheel hitch manufacturer. The two most common sizes for a lube plate in regards to diameter are, 10" and 12". However, most of the time the 5th wheel hitch manufacturer will call for a certain thickness so you will need to check this as well in your owner's...

I have attached a photo of this for you as well. These lube plates are also designed for much larger commercial trailers and would not work well on a recreational 5th wheel.

  • Can an 11 inch Fifth Wheel Lube Plate be Used with a Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Sounds like yesterday you were recommended the use of the Curt 10 inch disc part # 16721 with your Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch and now you want to use the # LC286160 instead. There really is no reason you couldn't use the # LC286160. It has the same thickness as the Curt and would just be a little bit larger in diameter.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD With 5th Wheel Prep
  • It looks like the 2011 Silverado models have an increased fifth-wheel towing capacity, so I would recommend going with a hitch rated up to 20000lbs, to take advantage of the upgrades they have included on the new models. The Reese fifth-wheel hitch # RP30081 would be a good choice for your application, and this can be installed using custom fifth-wheel rail installation kit # RP50066-58, which will mount to the existing holes in your truck frame. Luckily, Chevy even made some changes...

  • Is a Capture Plate Needed to Tow a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Curt E16 Hitch
  • You do not need a capture plate for the Curt E16 5th wheel trailer hitch. Capture plates are exclusive to PullRite hitches and are used to help activate its automatic sliding feature. You would just need to remove the capture plate on the pin box to use the Curt hitch. Be sure to use some grease # L11390. Or, if you do not want to deal with grease you could always use a lube plate, # 16721.

  • Is it Possible to Adjust Jaws on Curt Q16 5th Wheel Hitch
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about your Curt Q16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # C16120, and he said a little play is to be expected in order for the pin to rotate freely. So the jaws should not fit too tightly around the king pin. The jaws are operated by springs. The first time you used your 5th wheel hitch the springs may have been a little stiff. By the second time you used the 5th wheel you likely loosened up the springs and the jaws, resulting in the play you noticed. Also if...

  • Best Lube Plate for Demco Hijacker Autoslide Hitch
  • The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550034 can only use a lube plate that is a maximum of 3/16 inches thick so you can use the # RP83004 that is 12 inches diameter and 1/8 inch thick or the Curt 10 Inch # 16721 that is 3/16 inch thick. I recommend using the Reese # RP83004 as it is wider for more pin box contact and yet thinner to allow the capture plates to more easily engage. Standard pin boxes measure between 12 and 14 inches wide. The lube plate will...

  • Excessive Movement Between the Curt A20 5th Wheel Hitch and 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin
  • First, make sure that the jaws are fully closing around the king pin and that they are locked into place. If not then that would be why you are experiencing so much movement. If they are fully closing and locking then it is possible that the movement is actually coming from somewhere else such as at the connection between the head and the center section or the feet and the OEM Ford mounts. There are some things you can look at on the hitch to determine if the jaws are not fully closing....
