Video Transcript for Lippert Components Fifth Wheel LC286160 Review

Today we're going to review part number LC286160. This is the Lippert never fail whisper disc lube plate for fifth wheel trailer hitches at eleven and half inch diameter. This lube plate will allow your fifth wheel trailers kingpin to slide easily into the hitch. It does prevent scratches on the skid plate. There's no need for any messy grease. This will help reduce the noise between the skid plate and the kingpin on your trailer, and this is designed of an extra durable modified polyamide construction.

This will out last your standard Teflon lube plates. Does install very easily; you just slip it over the kingpin. This part is made in the USA. Again just to give you an idea, this is what your kingpin would look like on your fifth wheel trailer. What you would do is just slide this up over your kingpin, and then when your kingpin installs into your fifth wheel trailer hitch this plate will be between the pin box and the fifth wheel head to give lubrication and protection. A few measurements on this.

The over all diameter is going to be eleven and half inches, and the thickness is going to be right at three sixteenths of an inch. That should do it for the review on part number LC286160. This is the Lippert never fail whisper disc lube plate for fifth wheel trailer hitches at eleven and half inch diameter. .

by:

I ordered the lube plate and a few days later it was on my doorstep. I was so happy with the service at etrailer that I placed another one for a pin lock from them. I definitly feel they are a great company and will be doing a lot more business with them in the future!



by:

Disc will not stay on king pin as others have stated in reviews. I have Lippert conponets king pin should stay up without falling off. Going to keep it as a spare. Have been full timing for over 20 years and will continue to use the cheaper model of lube plate.

No one likes a slipped disk. To be honest we have heard of this happening with this lube disk. What I recommend instead is part # C16722. It has teeth or grooves in it that help grip the king pin.



by:

Nice product but not able to use it with my 5th wheel



by:

This is the first disk lube plate I have used. Seems to be doing a good job. Only down side is that it fits loosely and has fallen off the king pin during hookup.



by:

Needed a new pad for an older 5th wheel trailer I recently bought. This was just what I needed.



by:

Haven’t had a chance to use it and test it in action, but looks to be a good deal



by:

Good quality and heavy duty. Looking forward to trying it out soon



by:

Haven’t installed yet, but looks to be high quality



by:

The material is good, but this plate will not hold onto the king pin without some assistance. The designers must have forgot to add something to the lube plate that will hold it onto the king pin. For that reason I would not suggest this lube plate as it would take duct tape or another person to hold the lube plate onto the king pin until you are almost at the hitch.



by:

Purchased on-line through etrailer, quick order placement on B&W fifth wheel hitch. Order placed and hitch shipped same day. Very quick deliver via UPS, everything was received as promised; absolutely no issues as this was a very heavy shipment. Installed hitch in Ram in about an hour as instructions were straight forward and the quality and build of the hitch is an A++.



by:

Disc keeps falling off and I have not figured out how to prevent this from happening nor should I have to ponder that. Other models are slightly undersized and have finger type grips that adjust to the size of the pin. I would not recommend.

It was a frustrating waste of money and has since been replaced with another brand.



by:

Just starting my new business I knew I would have to do things myself to save money. Etrailer Made it simple with one phone call. Lori was knowledgeable and easy to talk to and I saved hundreds ordering from them. My local trailer sales and service was triple the price.

Thanks etrailer.



by:

keeps falling off kingpin. has to use tape to keep it on.

Works great other then still held on with tape. Replaceing pen box soon maybe new pen will not need tape to hold on.



by:

I have not towed or hooked up with with it yet. It does not stay up on the Pin the way the old one did. I used gorilla tape to ensure it stays up when I hook up to the Hitch.



by:

This disc is different from the others I have used. More firm but works well. Time will tell if it was worth the extra money.

Working great!

I ended up locking in my Turning Point hitch so I dont use the disk plate. My tonneau cover rails didnt allow me to pivot as tightly as I had wanted.



by:

Came on time, haven’t used it yet



by:

Haven't installed just yet but appears to be good quality and offer plenty of life.



by: 06/04/2023



by:

Good product very happy with it



by:

Works well



by:

Exactly what I needed, easy shopping on the website and fast shipping.

Works great!

  • Will Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate Work With Trailair Pin Boxes
    The Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate, part # LC286160 will work with all Trailair pin boxes. You do want to make sure it will work with the fifth wheel hitch you have as some of them have specific lube plates they work with.

  • What is the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate Made From
    According to Lippert, the Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate # LC286160 is made from an extra-durable modified polyamide, so it will outlast a Teflon lube plate.

  • 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.

  • Best Lube Plate for Fifth Wheel Hitch
    We do have a number of options for a lube plate but we do not carry the Holland FW001 and have limited access to websites outside of the manufacturers of the parts we carry so I was unable to look up this hitch. The best lube plate that will work if you have a 2-7/8" king pin is the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # LC286160 because it installs easily by sliding over the king pin and not only protects your skid plate but also minimizes the noise...

  • LC286160 Lube Plate Wont Stay on the King Pin
    The Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate # LC286160 does not have a way to secure the lube plate to the king pin. I contacted Lippert and they said the center hole of their lube plate is 2.88" and the upper diameter of your kingpin is 2.875", so that should make for a tight enough fit. If you are still experience fit issues, I recommend a different lube plate such as # RP83002 as it has teeth around the center hole to help ensure a better fit onto the king pin.

  • How To Choose a Lube Plate for a 5th Wheel Hitch
    The correct size lube plate to use will be based on the surface area of the skid plate on the 5th wheel hitch. The majority of 5th wheel hitches will use either a 10" or 12" lube plate. However, the overall diameter is not as important as the thickness is because certain 5th wheel hitches will actually state that you cannot go over a certain thickness which is why it is important to check the manual prior. With that being said, the 10" Diameter Lube Plate part # RP83002 which is only 3/16"...

  • Recommended Replacement 5th Wheel Lube Disk
    The Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # LC286160 should not need to be moved by hand while hooking up. I recommend getting a different lube plate like # RP83002 to try to get a better fit around your king pin since there really isn't a good way to secure the plate to your pin box or king pin and still make it function correctly.

  • Lube Plate Recommendation for a B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    There is a lube plate you can use with B&W 5th wheel hitches but Lippert lube plate # LC286160 is just a smidge too large for B&W hitches. Instead you can use the Reese lube plate # RP83002 which has a 10 inch diameter. I have linked a video review of it for you.

  • Lubricating and Preventing Rust on 5th Wheel Hitch and Pin Box
    I understand your concerns and think I have the perfect solution for you. I recommend a combination of the Roadmaster LubeMaster Dry Silicone Spray, # RM-747 which goes on dry and minimizes collection of dirt and road grime. Along with use of a lube plate such as the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # LC286160.

  • What's The Recommended Lube Plate For Demco UMS 31k 5th Wheel Hitch?
    We sure do! For your Demco UMS 31k 5th Wheel hitch # DM97GV I recommend going with the Lippert # LC286160. This plate has the correct 3/16" thickness for your exact hitch. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Lube Plate Recommendation for Use with B and W Companion Fifth Wheel
    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 Curt 10 inch Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate, # 16721, both of which will work nicely with your Companion hitch. This will work well with your Trailair pin box as well.

  • Recommended Lube Plate For 5TH Wheel Being Towed With B&W Companion 5TH Wheel Hitch
    I recommend using the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate # LC286160 with your 25,000LB B&W Companion 5TH Wheel. This lube plate is more durable than other Nylon # RP83002 lube plates as it is made of a extra-durable modified polyamide. This reduces the chance of the plate breaking while you are on a trip and having to find a replacement.

  • Recommended Lube Plate for Demco Hijacker UMS Double Pivot 5th Wheel Hitch
    For the Demco Hijacker UMS Double Pivot 5th Wheel Hitch - Single Jaw - Ford Super Duty Prep Package - 21K # DM8550033, I recommend the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 11-1/2" Diameter # LC286160. This disc is 3/16 inches thick and outlasts standard Teflon lube plates with extra-durable modified polyamide construction. If you just want a standard lube plate, I recommend the Curt Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 12" Diameter # C16722...

  • Do You Need A Specific Lube Disc For The B And W 3500 Companion 5th Wheel Hitch
    No you do not need to get a specific disc. You just need to make sure it is wide enough to cover the 5th wheel head. Depending on your preference I recommend one of the following. The Curt Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 12" Diameter # C16722 or the Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10" Diameter # RP83002

  • Can Lube Plate be Used on Demco Recon Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter
    You absolutely can use a nylon lube plate with the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # DM8550045 as long as it's no thicker than 3/16". For this your best option and one of our most popular units is the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk # LC286160 that features a superior modified polypeptide construction that's going to allow it to last longer than most alternatives. Another really good option that's more economically priced is the Curt # C16722 that has a slighter...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for 15k Trailer Towed with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    Based on the weight of the camper and the hitch opening size of the Curt # C15802 that your customer would have I would recommend the Equal-i-zer kit part # EQ64FR which comes with a shank that fits the 2-1/2 inch hitch size and also has a tongue weight range of 1,200 - 1,600 lb like what the camper would have most likely. We really like the Equal-i-zer systems because of how well they work and how long they've been around. This is the most copied system out there because it's basically...

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2003 Dodge Diesel Dually
    I have a solution for you. Looking at your pictures and based off the measurements given that will take a Reese hitch. You will need the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # RP30047. Its foot pattern will fit the holes and dimensions you have in your truck bed. I also suggest getting a lube plate like the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 11-1/2" Diameter # LC286160. This lube plate will prevent you from dealing with fifth wheel...
