Video Transcript for Demco Fifth Wheel Installation Kit DM6099 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the DEMCO 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for the Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package. This has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. This adapter is perfect if you want to use your standard 5th wheel trailer hitch with your Ram Truck factory installed Under-bed 5th Wheel Mounting Kit. Basically, you just mount this adapter in your under-bed rails using the OEM integrated pucks that are in your truck bed, and then lock it in place with these included locking tabs. Once you do that then you'll have a standard above that base rail system that's needed to install your 5th wheel hitch to. There is no drilling or welding required to install this. This part is a rust resistant black, powder coat steel construction. It is made in the USA.

A few specs on this. The application, again, is for Ram trucks with the OEM Under-bed 5th Wheel Mounting Kit, maximum Capacity is 25,000 pounds, and this part comes with everything shown here. Has a nice set of detailed instructions that describe how to install it, with pictures, and the bolts that are used to bolt these to the adapter plate. Basically, what you want to do is access the truck bed on your Ram. You do need to remember that on the Ram it does have different sized tabs on the front and the rear of the vehicle, so the pucks will also be different size, except with different size tabs. What you want to do is make sure the adapter plate is put into the tuck bed in the right position.

They do that by putting this label on it, and it will have on here an arrow pointing this way and it will say "cab," so you want to make sure the cab is here. Then these would be your rear pucks. These would be your front ones. Again, they're different size. What you want to do is lay this over the pucks, take off the .. There'll be plugs in your puck in the truck bed.

Take those plugs out. Lay this over the pucks then what you want to do . To show you the difference in the tabs, you can see here what they've done is color coated them. You can see the difference just by the color. The gold ones are longer, the silver ones are shorter. Silver ones will be what's on the front, closest to the cab.

Those you can just drop right in, like that. Make sure it lines up into the pucks and drops all the way down. Then on the rear one, they are longer, so what you want to make sure, is take your locking pin out, then just turn your handle to where it's . This is flush right here. See how it turns and it's flush What you want to do . this is so it drops all the way into the puck, is just put it in through the hold and then just turn the base to where the holes will line up. Your hand will need to be turned like that, that will line them so drop them all the way into the pucks. Once they drop all the way in, then just turn it, and that'll lock it all the way into the pucks. You'll do that on the other side also. Once it's locked in to where you need it correctly, then take your bolt, and bolt down the base plate. Do that on all four corners. Then you'll be ready to go. Put your locking pin back in. Then you're all locked in, ready to go. If you go to remove it all you have to do is just rotate that handle, on each of the four corners, then you'll be able to lift the whole thing out. Simple as that. That should do it, for the review on the DEMCO 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for the Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package with a 25,000 pound weight capacity.

Was bad at first cause I had to re-tap 3 bolts cause the threads were damaged I guess from the factory and one bolt was totally different. Box came with two corners ripped open and all four tabs that u lock the pins In to were bent . When you spent that much money on a product you should have to fix it . 2 stars cause of the problems 522482

Purchase this for my 2017 Dodge Ram 2500 with the fifth wheel prep package. Outstanding part and easy to install!!! Fast shipping had this part within three days! My only complaint is that UPS was not easy on the shipping box that the frame come in. Could have more shipping cardbroad used on the corners of the frame inside shipping the box. etrailers.com was a great website to order from totally happy this order and will use in the future! Thank You! 437004

This is an excellent product. It arrived 1 day after ordering it. It had very good instructions that were easy to follow. It only took me 20 minutes to install. It fit tight, but perfectly. It will be the perfect base for the Demco autoslider that I'm going to put on it. I'm using it in my 2018 Ram 2500 Crew cab to pull a Keystone Cougar Half ton fifth wheel. 515146

Very happy with the product. The only draw back is the weight. Can't be loaded/unloaded by one person. A good cross-sell opportunity is to offer a tool for removal. When I first got it, it didn't fit the truck. Support team was helpful and responsive. It seemed to be due to the bed spray. I was able to get it to mount perfectly by loosening a bolt under the truck, and then smoothing the edges of the locks in the rails. 352377

The lock down devices plates seem to be off by about the thickness of the plate. Was hoping I would not have to use 2 pound helpful hammer. 763947

5 of the bolt holes had been powder coated down into the threads so the bolts would not even attempt to start. I had to retap them to get the bolts to start. Should have been a 30 minute install took several hours. Otherwise the rails were of good quality and fit my Demco autoslider fifth wheel hitch. 762200

The item arrived with a corner sticking out of the box, but undamaged. The threads needed cleaned out before a bolt could be used. The price was higher than originally listed, and I was not expecting taxes. I have not installed it yet I am certain this was the right choice. 756223

Great product and I'd buy it again. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is due to powder coating inside two of the holes. One I was able to scratch away at with a pick and get the bolt to thread, the other I ended up getting by undoing what I had installed, lifted the thing up, and threaded it in from underneath all the way through to clear it out. I do not have a tap and die set. If you buy this, I'd recommend checking to make sure the bolts go in every hole prior to installing it, to save on time. 694127

Sturdy adaptor plate but sloppy quality control. Had to grind the front puck mount holes. Excess welds in the holes not allowing both puck mounts to lock down. Rear puck lock had a spot weld in the bolt hole causing one of the mounting bolts to get marred up. Had to retap the hole and get a new bolt. 641561
