Video Transcript for Review of Reese Fifth Wheel King Pin Parts - Custom Wedge for Curt - RP64FR

Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're going to be taking a quick look at this wedge from Reese for use with your Sidewinder. And this is a fit for the Curt A series and E series fifth wheel hitches.So this allows you to lock out that connection point between your Sidewinder and your fifth wheel. That way that's not becoming a second pivot point for your whole system. When that happens, it can cause some issues and defeat the purpose of having the Sidewinder. So this is going to be a good fit with your Curt A series and E series hitches, to make sure that you don't have any issues.

So let's take a little closer look and talk a little bit more in detail about it.And see it's just this stacked and welded plate. That's going to wedge in underneath your kingpin to hold everything in place. You might need to do a little fine tuning to get the suggested. So you might have to play with where it's placed or the tightness of the bolts to make sure that it's in the right spot. It does come with instructions on how to do that, including the torque specs to get it all tightened down properly.

So you definitely want to check out those, read them a couple of times and go by what they have to say there.The nice thing about this wedge is that, again, it is specific for the Curt A series and E series fifth wheel hitches. So it's going to be a better fit than a universal wedge that might not line up as well with those hitches. It's got a nice black powder coat going across the whole surface, so it shouldn't have any issues with rust or corrosion. And it is also covered by a lifetime limited warranty. That's pretty much all there is to it for our look at the Sidewinder wedge kit for your Curt A series and E series hitches.I hope this has been helpful in deciding if it's the right solution for you.Again, I'm Ellen at etrailer.com.Thanks for watching..

Ask the Experts about this Reese Accessories and Parts

  • Is There a Wedge that Can be Used with Curt Q16 Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The Curt Q series of fifth wheel hitches actually shouldn't be used with any pivoting pin boxes like the Turning Point or the Sidewinder. The way the head pivots and the jaw/head head design just doesn't hold up well to the different stresses that the pivoting pin boxes put on the hitches. This is partially why Curt updated the Q series hitches to the A series like the part # C16120 which is an A16 hitch. For this hitch you'd have to use the wedge part # RP64FR with either a Turning Point...

  • Replacement Pin Box For A Reese 10K Revolution Pin Box
    The Reese 10k Revolution was a uniquely designed pin box that can only be replaced with another 10k Revolution. Your 10k Revolution is a sidewinder so if you're using a slider it must be locked out. You can unlock it by removing the lock out bolts like you can see in the attached picture and adding on a Sidewinder Wedge Kit for Curt A-Series and E-Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches Item # RP64FR and locking out your sliding hitch. Doing this will move the pivot point further back than the...

  • What Is Needed to Tow 5th Wheel Trailer With 2020 Ford F-150 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    You can tow a 5th wheel with your 2020 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed, but you will need a standard/fixed 5th wheel hitch and a Sidewinder rotating pin box. The reason for that is the Sidewinder will move the pivot point back to the turret, which allows for the needed clearance so your 5th wheel trailer does not crash into your F-150's cab. The correct Sidewinder will depend on your 5th wheel trailer's pin box model number, as you'll need that in order to know the correct fit. For...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2019 Ram 3500 With RamBox
    The factory puck system is not an aftermarket option so there is no way to obtain one on your 2019 Ram 3500, and there isn't an underbed option, but you can still add a 5th wheel hitch to your truck. You will need above-bed rails to do so, and since you have the RamBoxes, a Sidewinder is required as well in order to obtain the needed clearance so the pin box does not hit the RamBoxes. For a 5th wheel hitch you'll need one compatible with a Sidewinder, and for a hitch and base rails I...

    There are a pair of custom 5th wheel base rail and installation kits that fit your 2020 Ram 1500 with an EcoDiesel Engine and 5-1/2 foot bed, from Demco and Reese.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2020 Ram 3500 with RamBox
    The fifth wheel hitch I recommend for a 2020 Ram 3500 with RamBox is the Curt A25 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16180 which will require the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit part # C16430-204. The Curt A25 has a dual interlocking jaw design which grips the kingpin tight and produces a smooth ride. The head can also be removed to help with install and removal. Please note, the RamBox feature will require that you install a rotating pin box on the trailer to ensure there is...

  • Do Curt 5th Wheel Brackets Fit 2020 Ford F-150 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    I checked with Curt and can verify that the Curt Custom, No-Drill Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit for Ford F-150 # C16442 does fit your 2020 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed. These brackets do require Curt base rails, and you can choose from either a gloss finish or carbide black finish. - Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails - Carbide Black Finish # C16204 - Curt Universal Fifth Wheel Base Rails - Gloss Finish # C16104 I have added links to video reviews of the rails as well as the...

  • Can Curt A20 5th Wheel Head Unit Replace Curt Q20 Head Unit for Use With Sidewinder
    I reached out to Curt about this, and what they told me was that the Q20 and A20 use different legs with different mounting, so the Head Unit for Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16540 will not fit on the Q20 legs. So because the Q20 is not compatible with a Sidewinder, what you will need is to replace your Q20 with the Curt A20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # C16140. You can certainly sell the Q20 to offset some of the cost of a new hitch, but the clearance benefits you get from the...
