Video Transcript for Curt Fifth Wheel 16900 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners. These sound dampeners are designed for Curt 00:00:09 Fifth Wheel Rails. They simply install between the fifth wheel hitch and the mounting rail. I did pull the instructions so you can get a good idea of what I'm talking about here. You can see the sound dampeners and how they install directly in between the fifth wheel hitch and the mounting reels. They're constructed from touch Neoprene rubber construction.

It comes in a four pack.Each one measures the same, so edge to edge this direction is three and a half inches by one and three-quarter inches. And then this area here in the center measures a half inch by an inch and a half. That's gonna do it for today's look at the Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners.

Great service and fast shipping. I have a home office and was working on a Sunday afternoon. I received a call from George to inform me of the status of my order. I thought I was the only one working on Sunday lol. I was sure wrong. I am very impressed with their customer service. I will browse their site and will buy from them. 240339

These neoprene "spacers" are each 1/10th of an inch thick, are very flexible, and are designed to keep the Curt hitch quiet and to stop the Curt slider rails from contacting the bed. Instructions refer to these as "spacers" and that they may not work with all mounting applications. I bought these for my Reese/ProSeries hitch to keep it quiet and they are a snug fit, but they fit ! Hopefully they will hold up to my 17K lb 5th wheel, but if not they are cheap enough to replace, depending on how much life I get out of them in the torturing southwest desert sun. 548904

I adapted these with a piece of sheet metal to fit under a set of Reese legs that were shaped like a channel. They have virtually eliminated the clanging noise of the hitch legs banging around in the rails. We are VERY pleased with them! 917454

The product arrived just as promised. The problem is that the pieces are too thick. You cannot get the keeper pins in place without using a hammer,so they do not work. 823038

Ask the Experts about this Curt Accessories and Parts

  • Cant Insert Pins to Secure 5th Wheel Hitch in Adapter C16023 if Using Rail Sound Dampeners 16900
    Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners # 16900 were originally designed to fit on industry standard above the bed rails. The adapter you mentioned, # C16023, has the slots in it to emulate industry standard rails so if the dampeners were compressed enough (with enough weight pushing down on them) then that should allow you to use the regular pins. You definitely want to use the regular pins and nothing smaller because a smaller pin would not carry the same rating. If you just cannot get...

  • Loose Connection Between Curt A20 Hitch and Curt Base Rails
    Since you mentioned the cotter pins which are used to secure the feet inside the rails, that makes me that you are referring to the connection point between the rail and foot on one of the four corners of the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16140. If that is the case then you will want to inspect the hole on the foot, the hole inside the rail, and the pin that connects these together. If these holes have become misshapen then this could very well cause the loose connection that...

  • Reducing Noise from B&W Patriot Slider 5th Wheel Hitch when Not Towing a Trailer
    Fifth wheel trailer hitches, especially sliders such as # BWRVK3270, can make some noise when there is no trailer connected just like you said. Since a slider has extra components and other moving parts there are a lot of places for potential movement. To reduce the noise between the hitch and the rails it mounts to you can use sound dampeners # 16900. They will go between the hitch and the rails and will reduce the sound at those points. Movement in the slider parts or other hitch...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Experiencing Back and Forth Movement While Towing
    The 1/2" pin is pretty standard with fifth wheel setups because they have to fit through the rails in the bed. All of the fifth wheel pins we carry are 1/2" options. If you are just concerned about rattle I recommend to use Curt Fifth Wheel Sound Dampeners part # 16900. They install between the hitch and mounting rails to eliminate some of the rattle while you are driving. These will work with any industry standard fifth wheel rail in the bed. You may be experiencing chucking or jarring...

  • Troubleshooting Play Between Curt Hitch Legs and Curt Bed Rails
    This is normal behavior for a 5th wheel trailer hitch. Considering the amount of weight involved and all of the steel components there is going to be some play. In fact, where the hitch fits in the rails has to have some play. If it was tight you would not be able to easily get the hitch in and out of the rails. You can try using dampeners like part # 16900, to fit between the hitch and rails. They are made to stop rattle and might be all you need.

  • Excessive Noise When Using Curt A16 Fifth Wheel Hitch On 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    There is not an actual adjustment that can be made on the A16, part # C16621. The hitch has a pivoting head that is cushioned so a bit of movement may be present when towing. If you can find the source of the noise it can help. It may be caused by the slider or by the jaws on the king pin, or the large pin that is in the middle of the hitch. You may want to check out the Curt Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners, part # 16900. These are neoprene pads that fit between the hitch and the rails...

  • 5th Wheel Slider Hitch Makes Excessive Noise when in the Towing Position on a 2014 Ram 2500
    I am not sure which 5th wheel trailer hitch you have. It sounds like a Curt hitch with a round tube slider. Sliders are going to be noisy since there are more places on them for movement compared to a fixed hitch. In addition, on 5th wheel hitches that have a head that pivots on a center bolt, there is usually some back and forth movement at the head hitch is normal. There are supposed to be rubber O-rings at the ends of the round tubes the hitch slides on, front and back, so 4 total....

  • Can the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Part # 16055 Install Both Ways
    Yes, the Curt Above-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Fifth Wheel Rails part # 16055 can be installed where the offset is closest to the cab or where the offset is closest to the tailgate. In order to reduce rattling, I strongly recommend using the Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners part # 16900 between the gooseneck hitch and base rails. You may also want to consider using the Curt Safety-Chain Loops for Gooseneck Hitches on 5th Wheel Rails part # C16000 as some states require that safety...

  • Troubleshooting Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch Where the Sound Dampeners fit Very Tight
    You will want to put the rubber spacers on the mounting tabs of the Curt Hitch part # C16536 before you drop the hitch into the rails that are installed in your bed. The first few times you install the hitch the cushions will make the pin pretty tight, but after a few times they will install a bit easier. Some people like to replace these every year, for that you would want part # 16900.

  • Which 5th Wheel Bracket Kit is Best for 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab Short Bed
    If you want to re-use your existing base rails in the 5th wheel set up in your new 2013 Silverado 2500HD you will want to use Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit # RP50066. This will work with your existing base rails. The other bracket kit you were reviewing, Reese # RP56001, is intended for extended-length base rails such as Reese # RP30153. Your existing base rails will not fit these brackets. The Reese Custom Bracket Kit # RP50066 includes hardware for installation on the frame...
