Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel King Pin RP31016 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take at look at the Reese Sidewinder Custom Wedge for the Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitches. Now, a 5th wheel wedge is a simple but reliable way to allow a 5th wheel hitch to be used with a 5th wheel sidewinder pin box. This custom wedge will bolt in place of the universal wedge on the pin box, provides a new pivot point for the king pin and a wider turn radius for the 5th wheel trailer. Now, to keep that pin box from swiveling at the 5th wheel hitch head, this custom wedge, which is bolted onto the pin box, will insert into the hitch head, locks the pin box into place, and then since the pivot point is then moved towards the rear of your tow vehicle, you can easily make 90 degree turns even with a short bed truck.This 5th wheel wedge is designed to fit the Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitches and will accommodate the Sidewinder or the 5th Airborne Sidewinder Pin Boxes. If you'll notice, this has a nice durable carbide black powder coat finish to it to resist corrosion. This part includes everything shown here, the wedge itself, and the mounting bolts to install it.

That should do it on the review of the Reese Sidewinder Custom Wedge for the Curt A16 5th Wheel Hitches.

I really like the Turning Point hitch as I can go a full 90 degree when backing in. After a scarry incident happened on the interstate highway, the wedge moved, even after being torqued to specification. So on the long hauls towing two trailers, I would feel safer with wedge removed.

Customer and product support is better than great as well as prices, service and available selection. Being new to 5th wheel hitch requirements I was able to get all the info needed on type and additional parts required. Received everything on a timely basis, had it installed locally without any problems what-so-ever. This is a great company by any standard and sure to be the next in retailer success. They have covered all the basis in what it takes to be not just a good retailer but truly a great retailer.

The universal wedge that came with Turning Point Pin Box on my Grand Design Fifth Wheel did not properly fit the Curt A16 hitch. I ordered this wedge per the advice offered by the etrailer expert. It works perfectly.
