Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel 30776 Review

Today, we're going to take a look at the replacement spring for Reese Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches. This spring is used in conjunction with the actuating rod of the fifth wheel hitch head. It is designed for use on the Reese Draw-Tite 14K, 15K, 16K, 20K, 22K, and even the 30K fifth wheels. One note, it will not work with the signature series models or the pro-series style of fifth wheels. The thing I do want to give you here are some dimensions on this. We're going to first do the overall length from the very end to the very end of the other hook. If we do that, end to end, is going to be right at 7 1/2 inches overall length.

The coil length of just the coil spring itself is going to be right at 4 7/8 inches. The coil diameter is going to be right at 5/8 of an inch. The last measurements we're going to give you is the long hook length of just the long hook itself. It's going to be right at 1 3/4 inches. Then, the length of just the short hook is going to be right at 3/4 of an inch. That should do it for the review on the replacement spring for Reese Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches..

This review is not about the product, a basic spring used on 5th wheel hitch that no local dealers stocked. This is about the employees of etrailer that responded to a customer that needed a product that their company could supply. Each contact at etrailer were responsive to my request, knew what I needed, found that they could supply it, took my order and delivered in a timely manner. Could not ask for better service anywhere. Thanks to etrailer. 491137

Got the spring and wondered where it attached since the old spring was broken and loose. This is a hitch of the 1990's and they guessed the right one and sent an Email diagram which was right on. Now only lots of muscle to hook it up and I'm good to go. 358523

Replacement spring for our Reese 22K 5th wheel hitch is to replace a broken spring. It was received within time indicated at a reasonable price and very reasonable shipping. The only negative was that no schematic was included to be able to install. Good news, etrailer.com had 2 websites that had the information for installation. Installed in about 30 minutes, of which most of the time was determining where to put the small hook. Very pleased with product and service. 344106

  • Does Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch Have Two Springs
  • The 16K Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30047 uses two Springs # 30776 though only one goes to the the Jaws # 58056. As you can see in the accompanying diagram, one of the springs goes from one side of the hitch jaws to the other. The side of the spring with the longer hook will attach to a pivot point on the flat rod closest to the jaws. The spring will then go the other side of the jaws and attach to a point just beyond the jaws. The other spring will attach to the handle from the...

  • Recommended Reese 20K Replacement Head For Reese 16K Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • If the bolt holes for the hitch you currently have that attach the head to the slider are 1/2 inch diameter, the replacement 20,000 lb head you can use with your slider legs is part # 30118. I have attached a photo that shows the bolt holes I described that need to be 1/2 inch diameter to be able to work. Some of the older hitches had 3/8 inch diameter holes and that would not work with the newer head.

  • Availability of Replacement Parts for Valley 5th Wheel Hitch
  • We do not currently have any replacement parts for Valley fifth-wheel hitches like what you have. Valley is no longer in business so it might be hard to find the bushings you need that are compatible with the CP 07054 hitch. Because of this, your best option might be to simply upgrade to a new hitch. For a similar 16K model, I recommend taking a look at the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30047. This hitch features a 2-jaw locking system for excellent contact with the king pin on...

  • How To Install The Reese Replacement Spring, # 30776, On A Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Usually, these springs should not have to be replaced unless they are damaged. You will want to check the Reese Replacement Spring, # 30776, and make sure it is not damaged and check the Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30047, to make sure that there is no other damage to the hitch. The springs are located in the head assembly. One goes from one side of the hitch jaws to the other side.

  • Necessity To Replace Spring on Reese 15K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • You should not have to replace the springs on your Reese 15K 5th Wheel Hitch, unless they are damaged. But, it would not hurt to replace the springs and also look over and grease the hitch as indicated in the instructions. You should check over your 5th wheel hitch periodically to make sure everything is functioning and working properly, as you probably already do. You will want to replace both springs at the same time. I have attached a diagram that shows how the springs attach...

  • Replacement Jaw Parts for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch that is Seized Around King Pin
  • There are jaw replacement parts for Reese hitches, # 58056. But it is possible that the jaw is just bound up and you might just have to move the truck and trailer forward or back or on to level ground to get it to release. Make sure to keep your hitch lubricated according to the manual. Also check the springs on the inside after you have uncoupled the trailer and removed the hitch head. Replacement spring # 30776 is likely the one you would need.

  • Thank you for your purchase of replacement springs # 30776 and jaws # 58056 for your Reese 5th wheel hitch # RP30047.

You can submit photos of the part you're speaking of, if you like. For your Reese 16K 5th wheel hitch # RP30047 you can use replacement Jaw Actuating Lever # 30417 which fits all Reese hitches.

  • You will need to remove the head of the 5th wheel hitch from the legs and turn it over. Basically, you need access to the inner workings. After that it is just a matter of knowing where the springs go. The picture I have included should help. There are 2 springs. One goes from the far end of the handle, across the jaw area and attaches to the end of a shackle attached to the driver side jaw. The other one attaches to a ridge on the handle and to a point at the front of the hitch near...

  • Diagram for Installing Reese 14k Fifth Wheel Replacement Springs 30776
  • I attached a diagram that shows where the # 30776 installs in a Reese 14k hitch. One goes from one side of the hitch jaws to the other side. The long side of the spring (hook furthest from the coils) attaches to a pivot point on the flat rod closest to the jaws. The spring then goes across to the other side of the jaws and attaches to a point just beyond the jaws (close to where the other springs attaches). The other spring has one end attached to the handle from the back of the hitch to...

  • How Many Springs are Needed Inside the Head of the Reese 15K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • You would need 2 springs, # 30776, for the 15K Reese 5th wheel hitch. One spring attaches to the handle assembly and the other is for the jaws of the hitch. Take a look at the picture I have included that shows the springs in their positions. The Reese 15K hitch is no longer made so the stickers for it, when it was new, are not available. But if you can tell me the approximate age of the hitch or the part number if it is on it anywhere, I may be able to find some.

  • Having a Difficult Time Removing the Head of my Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitch to Replace the Spring
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese and he said that sometimes the pins can get lodged in the head and make it difficult to remove. He said that using a hammer to help get the pin out is necessary sometimes and would most likely work for you. He also said that any moving parts that you can access will benefit from being lubricated with lithium grease. If you need a replacement spring I would recommend a Replacement Spring for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Hitches, part # 30776.

These springs will not work with Signature Series or ProSeries styles of fifth wheels. The springs are located in the head assembly. One goes from one side of the hitch jaws to the other side.

  • Installaton Of Replacement Spring for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • Inside the head assembly, the # 30776 spring attaches to the link that is attached to the handle arm. The other end of the spring is attached to the head body. When the handle is pulled it creates tension to help close the jaws of the hitch. I have attached a drawing of the top of a fifth wheel hitch with the location of the spring shown you can check out.

  • Handle Will Not Open Jaw On Reese 16K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch RP30047
  • If you take the head off of the rest of the hitch, # RP30047, then you can turn it over to get a better view of the inner workings of the hitch. You should be able to place the end of the handle back into the hole at the end of the actuator mechanism. But it could also be a broken spring. If you do see a broken spring in there or a spring is missing the replacement is # 30776. I have included a diagram that should help you.

  • Where do the Springs Install on a 16K Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
