  • Troubleshooting Reese 16k 5th Wheel Hitch Connection Issue with Custom Sidewinder Wedge
  • The Reese 16 K head # RP58146 will use the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Pro Series 15K, 16K & 20K (2009 and newer) # 30850. This custom wedge will give you a precise fit, but you should not be needing to spend so much time to get the jaws to lock. That would absolutely drive anyone crazy, so I'm sorry that is what you are experiencing. I recommend removing the wedge to see if you still are having trouble without the custom wedge. If so that would indicate a hitch head issue versus a wedge...
