Fifth Wheel Rail Sound Dampeners - 16900

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (55 Customer Reviews)

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

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

Was a tad shocked when the item arrived due to the size as I was expecting something thicker after all the reviews about trouble installing pins after installation of rubber pads, that aside I am happy with it as I don't hear the fifth wheel while going down the road but as for longevity we will have to wait and see. If your 5th wheel clanks going down the road you need this product. 256083

Cannot believe we ordered this just last wed. And it was delivered this Monday morning. So excited to get it on the truck and see how it pulls the gooseneck trailer. Will send pictures when we get it in. Thank you for such a fast delivery. And no damage to box. Kathy want to say thank you. You answered everything. You were a big help. Lana 183564

As already mentioned they do initially make it hard to put hitch pins in. I had to use a rubber mallet. I think once they get bedded in it will be easy though. Does isolate hitch from rails nicely. It's a thin but dense rubber and at least when initially installed has taken whatever slight play the hitch had in the rails right out. 52176



- 16900

by:


I was trying too eliminate the clanking of my hitch, so I ordered these Curt rubber spacers, and after waiting for the order, they don't work. The problem is that when they are installed they raise the base and you are unable too slide the pin in too secure the hitch too the rails. Waste of my money since I purchased 2 set's. 415573



- 16900

by:


They worked good for a few weeks. After that, 1 was still in place, 1 was loose in the bed of my truck and 2 are MIA. These are not durable at all. Can't say much for the noise dampening....they didn't last long enough. It's like they say....you get what you pay for. Lesson learned!! 381281



- 16900

by:


These pads are great.....But a bit of a pain in the butt to install the first few times. They make the pins fit TIGHT. But after a few times hauling the 5ver, they've squashed down some and it is finally easy to remove the pins for hitch removal. 40517

by:


Parts are great. Had problems with the cheaper way of shipping. Leaves e-trailer by ups and then delivered by the u.s .p.s. They don't deliver to my address in my town just to Po boxes. But i caught it before it was returned. Over all went well 105133



- 16900

by:


So far, so good. Installed them yesterday. They certainly tightened up the connection between my rails and the hitch. I have not towed my camper yet but they cannot help but reduce the rattling at the hitch. I hope they hold up. 427581



- 16900

by:


I actually could not get my hitch pins to go into place with these washers/spacers in place. To be honest, I did not spend a lot of time trying to push down on hitch to make them work, because I was in a hurry. 322598



- 16900

by:


The first installation of the fifth wheel hitch with these pads is a little tight. I'm sure once the weight has been on them a while it will be much easier to install/remove the pins. Other than that...awesome! 28412



- 16900

by:


So glad they had these...somehow between the time I put the hitch away for storage and the time I got it back out I lost 2 of my originals. These are a perfect replacement 401575

This item is orignal part I needed to take metal to metal noise and slack from my curt 5th wheel rails. Delivery was fast. I will definitely use etrailer.com again 217212

Simple product. Should help some of the issues. Not sure how long the thin rubber shim will last with all of the weight sitting on them though. We'll see. 295205

Simple order with great results. Best price I could find for hitch rails. Shipment was fast, faster then I thought I would have for this time of year. 162832

Works well. Takes the clanking out of my Reese hitch. I have to replace them every season, but they are inexpensive so no biggie. 147661

The dampeners are a little thinner than expected but the tight hitch fit to my rails made them just right. Quick shipping, thanks. 78725

Product is OK, does not last long, poor design of hitch mounting. If rubber had metal backing on one side it would last longer. 545156

Shipping was fast and these will help with noise and wear on 5th wheel mounting rails. Tracking of shipping was so easy . 271772

Appears to be thick enough to quiet the rattles between hitch and rails. Fit is very tight which is good. Fast shipping. 353064



- 16900

Nice once you get them on - but they make for a very tight fit the first time you mount them and try and put the pins in. 23704

Have not used these items yet. will install and take a trip in a couple of weeks. hope they cut the noise down. 165961

Harder than I expected them to be. Guess that is a good thing considering upwards of 15k lbs torquing on them. 120845

  • Reducing Rattle and Noise from 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch While Driving
  • 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 noise. 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. There really is no way to completely stop this from happening. You can try using sound dampeners, # 16900, to fit between the hitch and rails. They are made to stop rattle and might...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Making Noise Burning Starts and Stops
  • What you are experiencing is normal for just about all 5th wheel trailer hitches, especially sliders. You are likely hearing the slider clunk in the rails but some hitches have some head movement too and it is not outside the realm of possibility that it too is making noise. Felt padding is not likely going to do much since the forces involved is several thousand pounds pushing around on the hitch. Using an air ride pin box on the trailer will reduce the chucking but you are still...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Availability of 5th Wheel Hitch Sound Dampening Pads

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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 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.

  • 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...
