Video Transcript for Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Ford F-350

Today on our 2012 Ford F350 we're going to be installing the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose 30K Gooseneck Head, part number 9460 in conjunction with the Gooseneck Mounting Kit, part number 4448. Now we've already gone ahead and removed the spare tire from the vehicle so our next step will be to remove the exhaust. We'll need to unbolt the hangers from the frame of the truck as we'll need to install hanger extensions before reinstalling our exhaust we'll undo the rear hanger here undoing the 1/10-mm bolt on the bottom side of the frame as well as the 10-mm bolt on the inside of the frame rail. We can then move forward on the truck and undo the two 13-mm nuts holding that hanger in place. They do face up towards the bed of the truck. It is quite a tight fit to get those undone.

With those undone, our exhaust is hanging freely and we're ready to move on to installing the rail. We'll place the 5/8-inch GRE carriage bolts from the gooseneck head box into the square holes on the forward and rearward cross members from the top pointing towards the ground. Now we'll know which one is the forward cross member because it has extra holes drilled in the center here. When we install the rear cross member we'll place one end above the vehicle frame between the frame and the bed of the truck and we'll maneuver the nut section of the opposite end above the frame. We can then just let it rest against the hatch channel of the bed of the truck.

When we install the forward cross member we'll install it by placing the notched end over the driver's side and slip the notched end on the other side above our frame. Next, we're going to loosely install the driver's side hitch side bracket by attaching the 5/8-inch hardware to the threaded studs on our cross members. We can then install our U bolts. On the driver's side here you'll need to be careful not to crush any of the wires when you put your U bolt in. Also, you'll need to remember that when tightening the U bolt down you don't want to have your wires between the U bolt and the frame.

After fitting the U bolt in here on the passenger's side we can then use our 1/2-inch flat washer, our 1/2-inch lock washer, and our 1/2-inch hex nut to attach it to the U bolt. With our U bolt loosely installed we can now take our 5/8-inch x 1-1/2 x 2-inch block and our 5/8-inch carriage bolt, we'll pass the block between the hitch side bracket and the frame of the truck. We can then move the carriage bolt through the side bracket, through the block, and through our frame on the other side. We'll then take our 5/8-inch conical tooth washer with the teeth of the washer facing the frame and our 5/8-inch hex nut and attach it on the other side of the carriage bolt. With all our hardware loosely installed on the driver's side we can then move to the passenger's side and assemble the side bracket on it.

On the passenger's side of the vehicle the U bolt must be positioned to the vehicle's forward side of the shock mount as seen here. With all our hardware installed loosely on the passenger's side we're now ready to move up into the bed our truck and drill and 3-1/2 inch hole. Now here in the bed of the truck, the Ford F350 has a nice indention in the bed of the truck marking our location for the gooseneck. We'll double check it and make sure it is the 46-3/16 inches to be sure that we're drilling our hole in the proper location. We can now drill our 1/4-inch pilot hole and after drilling our 1/4-inch pilot hole we'll use our 3-1/2-inch hole saw to drill our hole in the bed. Now that we have our hole in the bend we're ready to install the head of our gooseneck. Now to put the head of the gooseneck in position we'll make sure that the driver's side of the gooseneck has the pin for the ball protruding from it. We'll place it into position allowing the carriage bolt to pass through the brackets. We can then use the 5/8-inch conical tooth washers with the teeth of the washer facing the gooseneck head and our 5/8-inch nuts to install the gooseneck head. We can then loosely tighten them down. Now that our gooseneck head is in position we'll move up into the bed of the truck to make sure that the ball sleeve is in the 3-1/2-inch opening that we drilled in the bed of the truck. Now that we've determined that our sleeve is in the proper location we can tighten down all our hardware and torque it to specification as indicated in the instructions. Now that all our bolts are torqued to specification we're ready to drill our holes for our safety chain loops. From underneath the truck we'll drive a 1/4-inch pilot hole making sure to stay in the lower corrugation of our bed pan. Now that we have our 1/4-inch pilot holes drilled in all four locations for our safety chain loop, we'll move back into the bed of the truck and drill 1/2-inch hole down through the bed where we can pass the safety chain loops through the holes back down underneath to the gooseneck head. With the safety chain loops in we'll move back under the truck and we'll use the spring, the large flat washer, and the nuts to secure the safety chain loops. Now when tightening the nuts down on the U bolts you want to make sure that three to four threads protrude past the end of the nut. This will leave enough within the U bolt for you to get your safety chains wrapped around it. Now that both our safety chain loops are in, the next thing we'll need to do is to install the lock pin handle. We'll remove the handle from the box where we can place the orange sheath over the top of the handle side of our bar. We can then slide the bar into the locking pin lining up the holes where we'll use the safety pin to attach it to the locking pin. And with that done we're now ready to reinstall our exhaust hangers. To do this we'll take the front exhaust hanger and our two 3/8-inch spacer blocks, place the 3/8-inch spacer blocks over the studs that we'll use to mount the bracket. We can then place the bracket back up into position and reinstall it using the nuts that we took off the studs. With our forward hanger on, we'll move to the rear hanger where we can use the extension included within the mounting kit to extend our rear mount down making sure our exhaust won't hit the gooseneck head while you're driving down the road. Now that our Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose is completely installed we'll go ahead and show you how it works. We'll reach under the driver's side rear fender where we'll pull the orange handle and shift it holding the lock pin out. We can then move to the bed of the truck where we can place our ball into the ball sleeve. You notice that the ball is keyed to make it easier for your lock pin to see. With the ball down in place, we'll move back to the orange handle where we'll shift it back to the center allowing the pin to lock the ball down. Now we're ready to pull our gooseneck. We can reinstall our spare tire which will complete our installation of the Draw-Tite Hide-A-Goose 30K Gooseneck Head, part number 9460 and Mounting Kit, part number 4448 on our 2012 Ford F350.

  • Best Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Ram 2500
  • All of the 2017 Ram 2500 models have the structure built already under the bed to add a gooseneck hitch. Models with the factory prep package would actually have the hitch and the four 5th wheel hitch holes in the bed. If it were me I would go with the B&W option, # BWGNRK1384, since they are so well made and made right here in the USA. Because Ram had that structure as a part of the vehicle build it makes it a lot easier to add a gooseneck hitch. You can use # 9467 from Draw-Tite,...

  • Replacement Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Plate Needed for a 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • From the picture that you sent in it looks like you have the Hide-A-Goose part # 9460, # 9464 or # 9465. If the vehicle you are installing this on is the 2003 Dodge Ram Pickup that you inserted for your vehicle information then the part # 9464 is the correct option for your application. For a 1500 the whole gooseneck hitch would be part # 9464-38 while for a 2500/3500 the kit would be # 9464-35. The 9464 part number comes with the plate and the hitch ball. Unfortunately the plate is...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Ball Hole Location for Hide-A-Goose Hitch on 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • The hitch ball location on your 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty will be 46-3/16" from the rear of the bed when installing the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit # 9460-49. This kit uses the # 4449 rails and that distance is determined with the use of the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # 9460 that comes with kit # 9460-49. I have added to an install video for you to take a look at, as well as a link to the instructions, which details the hardware...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Extension Needed for a Ford F-150 Crew Cab to Keep the Trailer from Hitting the Cab
  • If you have the Fold Down Gooseneck Hitch, # 8339-4437, in the bed of your F-150 Crew Cab pickup and are towing a gooseneck trailer that is too wide to make 90 degree turns, you will have to make some changes to be able to tow your trailer. The first thing you should do is measure to determine the clearance needed to successfully complete a 90 degree turn with your truck and trailer. Measure from the center of the gooseneck ball to the back of the cab. Next measure the width of the widest...

  • Do the U-Bolts in Safety Chain Kit # 58312 have a Weight Capacity Rating
  • The U-bolts in kit # 58312 don't have an official capacity by themselves. But when used with a gooseneck hitch that they were designed for, such as # 9460, the hitch is rated for 30,000 pounds. But this is the capacity of the whole system and not just the u-bolts.

  • Where is the Hole for a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Drilled Out on a 1998 Dodge Ram 3500 Long Bed
  • Depending on the type of gooseneck hitch you go with, the installation kit instructions will tell you exactly where the hole will need to be drilled for the ball. For the Hide-A-Goose, # 9460-39, you will mark and drill a 1/4 inch hole 45-1/2 inches from the rear of the bed and centered between the wheel wells for an 8 foot bed. This hole will be a pilot for a 3-1/2 inch hole saw. I have included a link to the installation details for both the hitch and the installation kit for you.

  • Reese Hide-A-Goose Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Ball Will Not Go Down
  • This has come up before with different gooseneck hitches that have a hiding ball feature. Normally the cause is some kind of debris, whether it be dirt or corrosion, that is not allowing the ball to move freely or the pin to go all the way in or out. The solution is to clean out the ball cavity as best as you can and then lubricate the hitch according to the instructions which I have linked for you. In the instructions Reese states to make sure to use the magnetic cover to keep the assembly...

  • Availability of an Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch that Will Fit 2002 Ford F-150 XLT Extended Cab
  • There is an underbed goose neck hitch available for your 2002 Ford F-150, but the Reese Hide-A-Goose, # 9460, will not fit because they do not offer an installation kit for your truck. You can use the Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Hitch with Installation Kit, # C630-637. While this gooseneck hitch will fit your truck, you will need to consult your vehicle owners manual for the towing capacities of your truck and to check whether or not it can used for gooseneck/5th wheel towing.

  • Adapters for Connecting a Fifth Wheel to a Gooseneck Hitch in a Truck Bed
  • The Draw-Tite Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, part # 9480 will not fit the Reese Remov-A-Ball trailer hitch because the hole is a different size and will not accept the post that is used to attach the Hi-Rise adapter to the gooseneck hitch. It does fit the Reese Hide-A-Goose Trailer Hitch, part # 9460 and part # 9461. I do have cushioned fifth wheel-to-gooseneck adapters that will bolt onto your fifth wheel and couple to a gooseneck ball on your vehicle. You will...

  • How are the Holes for Gooseneck Safety Chains Placed in the Truck Bed
  • In addition to the 3-1/2 inch diameter hole for the gooseneck ball to pass through, four 9/16 inch holes will need to be drilled for the u-bolts to pass through the truck bed. The u-bolts are spring loaded so that they will sit flat in the bed when they are not being used, but can be easily pulled up in order to attach the safety chains. We have some excellent installation videos online, I will give you a link below to see one of them.

  • Will a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Work on a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 With a Short Bed

The Remove-A-Ball Gooseneck, part # 6300-4435, and the Fold Down Gooseneck Series, part # 8339-4435, are very good systems that do not require drilling or bed removal and will fit all models of the Dodge truck.

But there are other types of gooseneck hitches that hide the ball in the bed. Some require a handle that exits from under the bed into the driver side wheel well, like # 9460.
