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..

I got a Reese 5th wheel from a neighbor who said he had some problems with the hitch and that it didn’t work like it used to. After taking the horizontal pivot off. I found it was missing the spring that assists it to lock when you slide it into the pin on the trailer. After doing some research on the internet I found it available at etrailer. The price was super and the part fit right on. I also was very pleased with the shipping. We had been on vacation and didn’t want it to arrive until after we had returned. 3 days after we got home the package still had not arrived. We called and spoke with a representative who said he would get it going out the next day. And to expect it on Monday. Well guess what, it arrived on Saturday. I have purchased other things from etrailer in the past and as always the products are of great quality. Y’all keep my account open, I’ll be back.

This spring appeared to be a direct replacement for a late 1990's Reese 5th wheel trailer hitch, dual jaw 15,000 pounds. There is some black rust on the long hook, which may lead to failure. Incidentally, this is the same spot where the old spring broke but I think the rust on this new spring is merely coincidental. It may clean up easily but for a new product, unacceptable. Without getting into details about shipping, I don't think it'd be worthwhile to ship it back or have etrailer.com send me a new one. The spring is less than 5 bucks so if you live next to etrailer.com, pick one up and give it a try.

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.

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.

The product was exact replacement for original in my Reese 15K fifth wheel hitch which had broken after 15 years. The information on the website was very helpful in making sure was ordering the correct part. Order expidited even though used economy mailing. Explanations which are responses to other customers which showed illustrations of part location were. Very helpful even though have an excellent mechanical background. Would definitely recommend their expertise in solving problems

etrailer.com has all the parts needed to maintain my 5th wheel Reese hitch. I bought the klip rings kit, bumper kit (58089) and spring (30776). The parts are good replacement parts with good prices. Shipping was fast. I had a problem with my order and customer service was fast to fix the problem. I will buy from them again.

Needing new springs for a Reese 5th wheel hitch that is about 24 year old I contacted eTrailer and acquired the exact replacement spring needed. The customer support was great in helping me find and order the springs. The items were shipped within 2 days and received as projected. Great company to do business with and will do again when needing parts.

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.

  • 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 Springs for Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch
    I believe you are asking about the Replacement Spring for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # 30776 which is used with the actuating rod. This spring is different than the other available replacement springs, the Replacement Head Pivot Spring Kit for Select Plus Fifth Wheel Hitch # 58257 and Replacement Head Pivot Springs for Reese and Draw-Tite Signature or Elite Series 5th Wheel Hitches # 58229.

  • Installing Replacement Spring on 20K Reese 5th Wheel Head Assembly
    The Replacement Spring for Reese and Draw-Tite Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches # 30776 does not have an installation video for me to show you the actual installation, so I've attached a diagram as well as some written instructions to assist. The springs are located in the head assembly. 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...

  • Availability of Replacement Jaw Kit for Reese 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch
    If you are absolutely sure the hitch was at fault and that you had it hitched up properly then it would be time for a new jaw kit like part # 58056. There is a way to safely test the connection. Hook it up like normal except leave the landing gear jacks only about an inch from the ground. Now hold the manual override lever of the brake controller and try to pull away. If the trailer comes loose again then the issue is the jaws. If it stays connected you may have had the trailer high-pinned...

  • 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.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Does Not Stay Level when Trying to Hook Up to Trailer
    A 5th wheel trailer hitch head is not supposed to stay level when hooking up. It needs to be tilted down towards the trailer. Then when you back up the trailer essentially ramps up onto the hitch. It you try to do it any other way you can end up high hitched which means the king pin is resting on the jaws instead of the jaws wrapping around the king pin. Take a look at the picture I have included that shows the right way to hook up along with an example of what to avoid.

    The replacement actuating rod for Reese 16K 5th wheel hitches is # 30579. You may also need klip rings # 58054 and spring # 30776. There are no written instructions for replacing the rod.

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...

  • Re-Installing Head of Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30047
    When attaching the head support back onto the legs for the Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30047 the 1/2 inch nuts should be torqued to 75 foot pounds. The head itself is then just secured to the support via the pivot pin. We do not have a video available of this process but I have attached the complete install instructions below that detail this starting on page 4.

  • Availability of Replacement Parts for Valley 5th Wheel Hitch

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.

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.

    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.
