Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel 83003 Review

Today we're going to review part number 83003. This is the Reese fifth wheel lube plate for the Reese R16 fifth wheels. Now this lube plate is designed to install on top of the R16 Reese fifth wheels, part number RP30866 and the RP30869. Now it does require drilling to mount this to the fifth wheel head. You can see the 3 holes on each side so a total of 6. It does come with the hardware that's needed, comes with the 6 socket cap head screws and 6 nylock nuts and a set of instructions that show you how to install this.

Basically what you would do is drill the 6 holes into the hitch head and install the socket head cap screws and the nylock nuts to hold it into place. This lube place will give you nice protection between your pin box and your fifth wheel hitch head when it's installed. It also gives some lubrication to help when the pin box is turning in the fifth wheel hitch itself. That should do it for the review on part number 83003, the Reese fifth wheel lube plate for the Reese R16 fifth wheels. .

Ask the Experts about this Reese Accessories and Parts

  • Should Lube Plate be Used When Towing with the Reese Titan 16K 5th Wheel Hitch
    If you haven't been using a lubricant while towing with the Reese Titan 16K then that would explain the noise you are hearing. According to the installation instructions you need to lubricate the skid plate before each trip. I have attached the instructions for the both the stationary and sliding Titan 16K 5th wheel hitches for you to reference (these have been discontinued). For a lube plate you can either use the part # 83003 which was designed specifically to match the skid plate...

  • Lube Plate Availability for Reese Titan 16k Hitch
    For the Titan 16k hitch part # RP30866 the lube plate is built into the hitch. If you needed a replacement you'd need # 83003. The standard round plate wouldn't be needed. I attached a review video for this as well.

  • Can Lube Plate 83003 Be Used with a Revolution/Sidewinder Pin Box on a 5th Wheel Trailer
    With a Revolution/Sidewinder pin box, the trailer pivots at the turret and not at the hitch head. So a lube plate would not be doing anything since the pivot is locked out at the hitch head. Now if you have the Revolution/Sidewinder locked out at the turret and the trailer pivots at the hitch head then it would actually need lubrication. There have been some fit issues with using traditional lube plates with Sidewinders so using the specific one, # 83003, with your Titan 16K hitch is...

  • Correct Lube Plate for the Reese Titan 16 Slider # RP30869
    The correct lube plate for the discontinued Reese Titan 16 Slider RP30869 is the Fifth Wheel Lube Plate # 83003. Review videos for both products have been linked for you to review.

  • Recommended Lube Plate for Reese # RP30081 Select Plus 5th Wheel Hitch
    The # RP83001 lube plate is what Reese recommends using with your hitch. The Reese # 83003 lube plate you referred to is designed for their Titan R16 hitch, part # RP30866, so it wouldn't be compatible with your # RP30081 Reese Select Plus hitch.

  • Lube Plate for a Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 30047
    Absolutely! For Reese 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30047 you will need a 10 inch diameter lube plate # RP83002. I have included a link to a video review of this lube plate for you.

  • Fifth Wheel Lube Plate Availability For Reese Select Plus Hitch
    The Fifth Wheel Lube Plate, part # 83003, you referenced is designed to fit the Reese Titan fifth wheel hitch. The Reese Select Plus 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # RP30081, you have uses the disc style lube plate like part # RP83001. The type lube plate used for the R16 is not available for the Select Plus.

  • Lube Plate Replacement for 16000lb Reese 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30051
    The correct lube plate for your Reese 16,000lb 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30051 is # RP83002 . It has a 10" king pin diameter and doesn't require any messy grease added to keep your skid plate free of scratches.

  • Welded on Lube Plate for Fifth Wheels
    I do have some good solutions for you but we do not carry lube plates that are welded on. We have types that bolt on like Fifth Wheel Lube Plate for Reese Titan 16 part # 83003 that will bolt directly to the Reese Titan 16 or part # RP58457 for the Titan 20 k version. For other models we recommend using a disc style lube plate. Of these I really like the one you looked at the Lippert Never Fail Whisper Disk Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # LC286160 that Neverfail...

  • Should a Lube Plate be Used with a Sidewinder/Reese Revolution Pin Box
    Actually you aren't supposed to use a lube plate with a Sidewinder/Reese Revolution Pin Box. Reese states that you should just grease the top of the hitch and you would be good to go. The # 83003 is only designed to fit the Titan 16 hitches so it would not fit your Reese Elite 18k hitch.

  • Towing Fifth Wheel Jayco Trailer with 2016 Ford F-150 Short Bed
    The first thing you will want to do is verify the towing capacity of your vehicle. From my online research, it looks like your 2016 Ford F-150 with the options you mentioned has a maximum towing capacity of 12,200 lbs. However, if you look in your owner's manual, you should be able to confirm your towing capacity. If 12,200 lbs is indeed the correct towing capacity, then your truck capacity exceeds the weight of both trailers, so the tow vehicle would not present a problem when towing your...

  • Recommended Lube Plate for B&W Patriot 18K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    For your B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # BWRVK3255, B&W recommends using a 10 inch lube plate like the Reese # RP83002 or the Curt # 16721. This is your best option to prevent scratches on the hitch's skid plate and ease hookup with the trailer. There is not a bolt-on plate like the Reese # 83003 available that will work on the B&W Patriot. In addition to using the lube plate, B&W also recommends lubricating the polyurethane bushings on top of the pivot arms with high grade lithium...

  • Will a Reese 12K 5th Wheel Hitch Work on a 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    I have several hitches that will work with your new 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but based on the information we have, your 12K Reese 5th wheel hitch will not work with anything that is made these days. The only 12K 5th wheel hitch that Reese had was made between 1985 and 1990 and it was actually made by another company called Owens Classic. Reese dropped that line in 1990 and released their own 5th wheel line, so anything sold by Reese that was made before 1990 will not fit anything made...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 8-Foot Bed Towing 5th Weighing 10,500 Pounds Loaded
    As long as the weight capacity of a fifth wheel hitch is greater than the gross vehicle weight rating of your trailer, it wouldn't matter which fifth wheel hitch you choose. With that said, I highly recommend the B&W Patriot # BWRVK3200 because of B&W's high quality products. It features a dual-jaw design for a strong connection. The durability is top notch because it went through vigorous testing cycles in both fatigue and static testing. We have seen a couple lube plates get stuck...
