I wasn't sure what part number to order because my 5th-wheel hitch is so old. I emailed etrailer and a short time later I heard back from them with the correct part #. I ordered it up and received it 2 days later and it fit perfect. I really appreciate this level of support. Thanks

  • Replacement Handle for a Reese Kwik Slide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Slider
    The correct replacement handle for a Reese Kwik Slide slider is # 58161. This handle has the correct design for the Kwik Slide. The handle that you referenced, # 30579, would not fit because of the design differences.

  • Replacement Actuating Rod and Handle For Reese # 30032 15K Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The replacement handle for your Reese # 30032 15K fifth wheel hitch would be part # 58055. The cotter pin used to secure the handle to the actuating rod is included. The replacement actuating rod is the # 30579 that you referenced. The actuating rod uses the Klip Rings to hold it in place. The rings are not included, and are available as part # 58054. Assuming that your fifth wheel hitch is in good shape (other than the bent rod) you should need no other parts.

  • Length of Replacement Actuating Rod for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches
    The overall length of the Replacement Actuating Rod for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # 30579 is 21-1/8". From the end of the rod to the part where it bends is 20-1/2". It sounds like this would be what you're looking for but if you can let me know what 5th wheel hitch you have I can verify if this is the correct replacement part or not.

  • Parts Needed for Replacing Actuating Rod and Handle of Reese Hitch # 30047
    Yes, everything you ordered is correct for replacing the handle and actuating rod of your Reese hitch part # RP30047. The part # 58055 is the handle. Part # 30579 is the actuating rod.

  • Removing Hitch Head of Reese 5th Wheel Hitch 30047 to Replace Actuating Arm
    While there aren't any written instructions detailing how to install the Replacement Actuating Rod for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # 30579 on your Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30047, you simply need to remove the hitch head to access the parts (like in the diagram provided).
