Video Transcript for Reese Accessories and Parts 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. .

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Lube Plate for Reese Titan 16K Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch RP30869
  • The Reese Titan 16K Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30869 has a specific matching lube plate, which we offer, part # 83003. This does require drilling 6 holes in the hitch head for installation and will avoid any issues with proper king pin fit in the hitch jaws. Some other lube plates will indeed be too thick to let the king pin lock properly in the jaws. You can see this item in the linked review video.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch And Bed Rails For 2015 Ford F-150
  • The Reese Titan 16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider, part # RP30869 will work great with your 2015 F-150. The RP30869 offers a hitch height from 16-1/2 to 19-1/4 inches, and has a gross towing weight capacity of 16,000 lbs. With the higher side of the truck bed sides, you are wise in looking for a system that will work for you. For additional height you may want to check out the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider, part # RP30870. This has a height...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch and Rail Options for 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty Short Bed without Factory Rails
  • The Reese Titan hitch # RP30869 you selected is compatible with the rail kit, and the rail kit # RP50026-58 is confirmed to fit your 2016 Ford F-250. The custom rail kit mounts to existing holes in your vehicle's frame and minimizes drilling and install time, so it's a good choice for mounting your Reese hitch. I'd also recommend the Fifth Wheel Lube Plate for the Reese Titan, # 83003. The Reese Titan hitch has a capacity of 16,000 lbs. Another option you might consider is the Demco...

  • 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.

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2013 Ford F-150
  • For your 2013 Ford F-150 6.5 foot bed I recommend the Reese Titan 16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30869. The premium serrated dual jaw on the Titan provides an even, secure closure, ensuring the king pin has 360 degrees of contact in the trailer hitch. This secure connection means the trailer will have minimal jarring and chucking. The # RP30075 has dual jaws as well, but the Titan is Reese's step up from their traditional fifth wheel hitch. The lube plate Reese recommends for use...
