Speaker 1: Today we're taking look at the sidewinder wedge for Reese Titan Fifth Wheel trailer hitches. Now this unit is designed to prevent your sidewinder king pin from pivoting when it's in the hitch. It works with Reese Titan Fifth Wheel trailer hitches. It simply bolts onto the sidewinder in place of the universal wedge. Installation hardware is included.Now the hardware will need to be torqued to specifications listed in the instructions. So when you get this, please follow the instructions, hold onto those, because it does have the torque ratings listed.It's made from a durable steel construction.

Features a nice black, powder coated finish which is designed to resist rust and corrosion. And it's covered with a limited lifetime warranty.Now when installing this, the wedge needs to be positioned with the narrow end towards the front of the unit and the recessed area downward. The recessed area is for the socket head clearance to the bolts.That's going to do it for today's look at the Sidewinder Wedge for Reese Titan Fifth Wheel trailer hitches.

I have a sidewinder pin box and the universal wedge that came with it would not work on the Titan hitch. I tried to file it down and while it would now fit the slot it would allow (very little) side to side movement. I was looking at having to expend a rather large sum of money to purchase a sliding hitch but the good folks at eTrailer told me Reese had released a wedge for my hitch. The new wedge fits perfectly and solved all my hitch problems. I could not be happier with this product. I also appreciate the sales staff at eTrailer for steering me in the right direction and saving me a ton of money. 326279

I am done with Reese .... The constant no release problem that seems to follow Reese. I have the Reese 15k pro series with bed saver (no or hard to release) and then I purchased The Reese 20k Titan (same hard to release) .... Then I purchased a b&w 18k with a slider ... Locked out the revolution ... And was I surprised! It always releases every time. I am going to junk both Reese's hitches because I don't think anyone should own them! Salvi p.. 302602

Elite airborne sidewinder is still the best solution for a short box but the ride isnt as good as I hoped it would be. It is considerably better than it was when I first installed it and had it set too stiff. Still the only short box hitch I will go with till something better comes along. 261124

Instructions were great & installation was easy. High quality parts that looked great and are holding up well. Etrailer and Cequent (Reese's parent co.) are both great companies to deal with - extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the products they sell. 295719

  • Which Wedge to Use Reese Titan # RP30867 20K with Revolution 90 Pin Box
  • The universal wedge included with the Sidewinder/Revolution is compatible with the Titan 16 and 20K 5th wheel hitch, but the # RP30865 wedge that's custom designed to be compatible with the Titan 5th wheel hitch would fit better.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Reese Revolution Pin Box And 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 6.5 Foot Bed
  • The Reese Revolution pin box will not work with the B&W companion that uses the gooseneck underbed hitch for the base. It puts too much force on the under body for that combination. If you want to use an underbody rail kit, I recommend the Under-Bed Rail and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30868 which can be used with the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Wiring Harness - Single Jaw - 18,000 lbs # RP30142. If you...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2016 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Ram Boxes
  • Based on your earlier question you indicated that the trailer has a gross weight capacity of 18,000 pounds so you would want a hitch that exceeds that for safety. the other issue is the Ram Box feature. The Ram Boxes mean that you will have to have one of two possible set ups: 1) A fixed 5th wheel hitch with a Sidewinder pin box 2) A Demco hitch that has 22-1/2 inches of travel The second option will not work because that hitch has a capacity of 13,000 pounds. So you will need...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Towing Setup for a 2017 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot Bed
  • Since your 2017 Ford F-150 has the 5-1/2 foot bed you will want to use a Sidewinder with a stationary hitch. For any truck bed that is shorter than 6 feet a sliding 5th wheel hitch just doesn't provide enough clearance for you to take tighter turns. A Sidewinder has a rotating turret which moves the pivot point from above your 5th wheel hitch back 22 inches to where the pin box installs on your trailer. To choose the correct Sidewinder that replaces your pin box you will simply need...

  • Will a Reese Sidewinder Wedge Fit a Lippert Turning Point Pin Box
  • While the Reese wedge # RP30865 has not been officially confirmed as a fit for the Turning Point pin box I am confident that it will work. The Turning Point pin box is basically the same concept as the Revolution or Sidewinder pin boxes with the only difference being how each one swivels. The Turning Point uses a bearing system.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Towing System for 2018 Ram 2500 with Ram Box
  • That is not true, but an adapter is required for your application. Due to your Ram Box, the bed of your truck is more limited for turning clearance so a Factory Reese Revolution or an aftermarket Reese Sidewinder Pin Box replacement is needed to allow proper turning clearance with your Ram Box. To start, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP50054-58. This kit will give you the base rails you need and are compatible with coil springs or factory...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit for 2015 Ram 1500 Short Bed Towing Trailer with Reese Revolution
  • Yes, you are correct. Since you are buying a trailer with a Reese Revolution box you would want a stationary hitch since you do not need the slider. The Revolution will provide all of the needed turning clearance. For a stationary hitch the Reese Titan part # RP30867 would be a great option. Then for a rail kit confirmed as a fit the part # RP50142-58 would be what you need as it is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Ram 1500 short bed. The wedge you'd need then is the part # RP30865.

  • FIfth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for Reese Titan Hitch in 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • For your 2017 Ram 2500 without the factory rail kit the correct fifth wheel rail kit you would want is the Reese kit part # RP50054-58. This is a custom fit rail kit for your truck that will install much easier and faster than a universal kit. Plus it will minimize drilling. This will work well with the Reese Titan hitch part # RP30867 that you have. For a custom wedge to use this hitch with your Sidewinder you would want the # RP30865.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails and Hitch for 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 5.5 Bed for Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • A Reese Revolution is the equivalent of the Reese Sidewinder. The Revolution is the factory installed option and the Sidewinder is the very similar aftermarket option. For a 5-1/2 foot bed, a sliding hitch will not work, so the Revolution or Sidewinder route is the only option to provide you with turning clearance. The really good news is that is by far the ideal option even if you had a longer bed truck. For your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500, I recommend you start with the Reese Quick-Install...

  • Sidewinder Wedge for Reese Titan Part # RP30866 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • Yes, the custom Sidewinder wedge for the Reese Titan fifth wheel trailer hitch # RP30867 you referenced is # RP30865. You will bolt onto your Sidewinder to prevent the king pin from rotating in your fifth wheel trailer.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit and Hitch For 2017 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • There is not a factory prep package for the 2017 F-150 and no adapter to make a factory prep hitch work. For your F-150 with 5-1/2 foot bed, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56034-53 or the slightly more difficult to install # RP50087-58. For a hitch, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30867 which has a serrated jaw design and a vibration...

  • Will a Sidewinder Replace a RotoFlex Pin Box 1621 on a Trailer
  • The 5th Airborne Premium 5th Wheel Air Ride King Pin w/ Sidewinder and Turret # RP61422 that you referenced comes with everything needed to swap out the RotoFlex 1621 you have currently installed on your trailer. The Sidewinder will work great with your Reese Titan 16 slider part # RP30869 that you have but you will need to leave the slider in the forward most position. The correct wedge to use with this hitch and Sidewinder is part # RP30865.

  • Recommended Non-Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch And Sidewinder Pin Box For Ram 3500 Dually Short Bed
  • To protect the bed of your truck you may simply need to adjust the height of your sliding hitch to give you more clearance above your bed. However, it may be more complicated than that as well. There is one secure way to ensure your bed is protected, but it requires changing your pin box and your hitch. If you already have above bed rails for your 5th wheel, I recommend swapping your slider for a non-moving hitch like # RP30867 and then changing your pin box to the Reese Sidewinder 5th...

  • Hooking up Trailer that has Sidewinder with Taller 2017 Ford F-250 and Reese Rail Adapter
  • The Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter # RP30156 that you referenced will add about 3" from where the factory pucks are on your 2017 Ford F-250. Although 3" does not seem like a lot, it could affect how easy it is to hookup your trailer to your F-250. You can definitely switch to one of the Reese Elite 5th wheel hitches if that makes hooking up your trailer easier. The Elite # RP30142 is rated for 18K and has a height adjustment from 14" - 18", while part # RP30871 is rated for...

  • What is Needed for Fifth Wheel Hitch in 5-1/2 Foot Bed 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500?
  • For your 5-1/2 foot bed 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 you are correct that a Sidewinder is going to be necessary in order to use a fifth wheel hitch. A Sidewinder is going to replace the pin box on your fifth wheel trailer so you will need to find one that is compatible; for example the # RP61411 is designed for Fabex 500, 503, 520, 530, 560 and 765, Lippert 1116, 1716 and 0115, as well as RBW 7019 and 7028 pin boxes.

We have had customers confirm that using a Sidwinder allows the standard hitches to work, however Reese has not tested it, so they cannot confirm. For a hitch compatible with your sidewinder, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30867. I recommend using custom wedge...

  • Recommendation For 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With Reese Revolution For 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 6.5 Bed
  • For your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500SLE, I recommend using the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30867. This hitch has a serrated dual-jaw design for superior hold, a built-in vibration-isolator system, and a easy-to-see king pin indicator. These unique systems ensure a smooth ride with minimal jarring and chucking.

  • We have suspension enhancement that is compatible with your 2012 Toyota Tundra that is also compatible with an in-bed hitch like the Reese rail kit you mentioned part # RP50084-58 but none of the air bag styles will work. Instead you'll need to go with a Timbren kit like the part # TTORTUN4 which will fit and work well. The wedge you'll then want to use with the Titan hitch part # RP30867 that you have is the part # RP30865.

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2014 Ram 2500 with Ram Boxes
  • There is a specific set of parts needed in order to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a 2014 Ram 2500 that has the Ram Box feature. The issue is that the Ram Box truck bed is more narrow than a regular bed and as a result the trailer pin box will hit the bed sides when turning. In order to make it work you will need to use a Sidewinder pin box on the trailer and fixed 5th wheel hitch in the truck. The first thing to check is if there is a Sidewinder that fits the trailer. To determine that...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible With Revolution Pin Box and 2015 Silverado 2500
  • For your 2015 Silverado 2500HD, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP56001-53 which are 48 inches long, fit industry standard hitches, and are easier to install because of the length. If you prefer the traditional 43 inch rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50066-58. Both of these have custom brackets so no drilling into the frame...

  • I do have an option for you but the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System with Adapter part # AM3200 is only compatible with fixed pin boxes. Since the Reese Revolution is a rotating pin box, it cannot be used with the above 5th wheel hitch. Instead, I recommend taking a look at the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30867 with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails part # RP50142-58 which will work with your Reese Revolution Kingpin.

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a 2015 Ram 2500 with Ram Boxes
  • Even though your 2015 Ram 2500 has the Ram Box feature you will still be able to tow your Keystone Carbon 357 5th wheel trailer with the right equipment. You will need an installation kit for a 5th wheel hitch, the 5th wheel hitch itself, and a Sidewinder pin box (unless the trailer has a Revolution pin box). Because a Sidewinder is specific to the trailer we will look at those first. The Sidewinder will replace the pin box on the trailer. What it does is prevent the trailer from...

This hitch has a serrated dual-jaw design for superior hold, a built-in vibration-isolator system, and a easy-to-see king pin indicator.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For Revolution Pin Box To Reduce Jarring And Chucking
  • I reached out to the manufacturer of your Revolution 10K and that particular model is made uniquely for your trailer. In other words it is not a pin box that can use another style of pin box, it is custom made for your trailer. There is a replacement available if you ever have an issue with yours, but it is a direct exchange for the same Revolution model. There is nothing else that fits. If you decide you don't want to use the revolution turning function, you can lock it out with bolts...

  • For your 2011 Ford F-150 Super Crew with 5.5 foot bed, the sliding hitch you currently have will not work. Due to the bed size, you need to use a fixed hitch and a Sidewinder to get the turning clearance you need. If you don't have base rails, I recommend you start with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50081-58. Then you will need a fixed mount hitch versus a sliding hitch. I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer...

This is custom fit that won't require drilling into the frame and is an easier install due to the outboard brackets. For the hitch to go with your Revolution pin box, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # RP30867 which has geared teeth to hold the kingpin firmly....

  • Does Lube Plate Head Plate of Reese Titan Hitch Have to Come Off When Using Sidewinder Pin Box
  • When using a Titan fifth wheel hitch like the part # RP30867 you do not need to remove the lube plate of the hitch that is built into it. You'd want to use the correct wedge part # RP30865 which makes connecting the hitch to the Sidewinder easier.

  • Will Bed Rails for Pro Series Fifth Wheel Hitch Work With Reese Titan
  • Both the Pro Series Hitch # PS30857 and the Reese Titan 20k Hitch # RP30867 are compatible with industry-standard, above-bed rails. As long as you have such rails installed, the new hitch should fit just fine. Since you have a Sidewinder installed, I also recommend the Sidewinder Wedge for Reese Titan 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches, # RP30865, which will prevent your Sidewinder king pin from pivoting in your hitch. I've included a demo video for the Reese Titan hitch for you to check out.
