Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel RP83004 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP83004. This is the Reese thin lube plate for the Reese fifth wheel trailer hitches in 12 inches in diameter. Now this lube plate is designed to prevent scratches on the skid plate of your fifth wheel trailer hitch. It also let's your trailer kingpin slide into the hitch with ease because it'll help lubricate. There's no need for any messy grease. You can just use the lube plate.

This will offer extra protection because it has a very large surface area. It is constructed of very durable nylon to hold up for quite a while. Basically what'll happen is this is what your kingpin would look like. This is an example of what would be on your pin box. What you would do is just take your lube plate, put it onto your kingpin and then once your kingpin goes into your fifth wheel hitch head and locks into place, with this lube plate on there, it'll give you lubrication and protection between your pin box and the hitch head of your fifth wheel. The application on this, it is designed for the Reese fifth wheel trailer hitches with a 16,000 pound weight capacity.

I did mention this is a thin lube plate. The thickness on this one is 1/8 of an inch. Most lube plates are around 3/16, so this is a little bit thinner. The diameter on this edge to edge is going to be right at 12 inches. That should do it for the review on part number RP83004.

This is the Reese thin lube plate for the Reese fifth wheel trailer hitches and 12 inches in diameter. .

I've used these lube plates for years, and they never disappoint. Very easy to install and last me about three seasons. Saves on the grease mess. I will continue to use these for my 5th wheel. Thanks Etrailer.

This is a thin disk and fits my application better that the thick lube disk. No more grease on the plate surface, yeah!

The Reese wedge for my 5th wheel hitch has not been tested yet as we have not been camping this year and it came past the season last year.

I had purchased a 1/8 thick lube disk from etrailer. This was the only company that had the size I needed and had it to me in 2 days. Excellent product and service. Thank you etrailer

This is the perfect lube plate for my application, as the thicker ones prevent my king pin from hooking up to my hitch. This was the perfect solution. Thanks etrailer!!

It has been difficult finding a 1/8 inch lube plate. I should have gone to etrailer first. They always have the right part at a great price, and service second to none.

by:

Haven't used it yet. But looks like advertised. Don't visably see any difference between this and a standard lube plate but who knows?



- RP83004
by:

I've been looking for a thinner lube plate. I haven't hooked up to my 5th wheel yet but the white disk were to thick and made hitching up impossible with Reese R16.



- RP83004
by:

No issues with this product. When I bought it I was concerned that it wouldn't stay on when the trailer was not hitched to the truck. But we have never had a problem. After a year of use it only has worn slightly.

Will work great with Reese R16 hitch. This is thinner than other lube plates.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Accessories and Parts

  • Using Lube Plate with B and W Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The only difference between the two lube plates is the color and their thickness. The # RP83004 is black in color, and is 1/8 of an inch, or .125 thick. The # RP83001 is white in color, and is a bit thicker at .192 of an inch, or just below 1/4 inch thick. I would recommend going with the thinner # RP83004, as using a plate that is too thick might make hitching more difficult. I spoke to my B and W contact who tells me that it is perfectly acceptable to use a lube plate if you wish.

  • Lube Plate for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Hitch in 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty
    You are absolutely correct that the Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch # DM8550024 in your 2019 Ford F-250 will need a lube plate that is a max of 3/16". For that I recommend the Reese Lube Plate # RP83004 which is 1/8" thick and has a 12" diameter so it will work perfectly. I've added a link to a video review of this lube plate for you to take a look at.

  • Is a Lube Plate Required for the Reese Titan 20K 5th Wheel Hitch
    That is correct, the Reese Titan 20K 5th Wheel Hitch does not require a lube plate so long as you have greased the skid plate properly before each use. However, some people do not like to deal with messy grease every time they couple the trailer therefore they use a lube plate, the Lube Plate for Reese Titan 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP83004. I personally prefer the lube plate as the cost of the grease can add up over time and as mentioned above it is messy and can be a hassle. In...

  • 30k Reese Low Profile 5th Wheel Lube Plate Recommendation
    Yes, with the Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30054 can use a lube plate. The correct replacement lube plate is part # RP83002. Or, you can use a heavy automotive grease according to the installation instructions I attached for this hitch.

  • Does Lube Plate for 5th Wheel Hitch Have a Lifespan & When to Change
    So the lifespan and when to change a lube plate doesn't have a hard and fast answer because there are numerous variables associated with how long it will last. The terrain you are going over, the weight of your trailer, and the frequency with which you use it are all really important and will impact how often you need to change it. You will know it when you take a look though, as the signs of wear will be pretty obvious, from small tearing or cracks to uneven wear, you'll know that...

  • Is Round Lube Plate Needed for Reese Titan 20K 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Reese Titan 20K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, which is no longer in production, actually comes with an integrated plastic lube plate. We do have the replacement plate still in stock with part # RP58457. Because of this a separate round lube plate like # RP83004 isn't needed and Reese doesn't recommend using one.

  • Lube Plate Compatibility for TrailSaver TSLB2H 5th Wheel Hitch 10" vs 12"
    Per TrailSaver they recommend using the 1/8" thick Lube plate # RP83004. The larger thickness might cause the locking mechanism to not fully seat on the pin. The 10" or 12" is more dependent on the pin box on your 5th wheel. You would need to measure the surface on the pin box to know for sure. What is recommended is width 10" or less use the 10" plate. Anything more step up to the 12". But I recommend just getting the 12" as its better to have too much versus too little in this instance.

  • Best Lube Plate for Demco Hijacker Autoslide Hitch
    The Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider # DM8550034 can only use a lube plate that is a maximum of 3/16 inches thick so you can use the # RP83004 that is 12 inches diameter and 1/8 inch thick or the Curt 10 Inch # 16721 that is 3/16 inch thick. I recommend using the Reese # RP83004 as it is wider for more pin box contact and yet thinner to allow the capture plates to more easily engage. Standard pin boxes measure between 12 and 14 inches wide. The lube plate will...

  • Should Lube Plate be Used When Towing with the Reese Titan 16K 5th Wheel Hitch
    If you haven't been using a lubricant while towing with the Reese Titan 16K then that would explain the noise you are hearing. According to the installation instructions you need to lubricate the skid plate before each trip. I have attached the instructions for the both the stationary and sliding Titan 16K 5th wheel hitches for you to reference (these have been discontinued). For a lube plate you can either use the part # 83003 which was designed specifically to match the skid plate...

  • Lube Plate Compatibility With Demco Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch
    If you are using a Demco manual sliding hitch like the Hijacker Premier # DM6076P-UL-21K then a lube plate like # RP83004 can be used. If you are using the Demco Hijacker Autoslide like # DM8550035 you can only use a lube plate that is a maximum of 3/16 inches thick so you can use the # RP83004 that is 1/8 inch thick. The Hijacker Autoslide head is designed to keep the head and pin box from moving independently so the autoslide feature will work properly. This will let you couple and...

  • Can Lube Plate be Used with Sidewinder Pin Box
    A lube plate such as the Reese # RP83004 isn't necessary for a Reese Sidewinder because it won't be turning. Our representative at Reese stated you will only need to grease the king pin and wedge and you will be good to go. Since they are not necessary, lube plates were not designed to work with Sidewinders.

  • Should Lube Plate Be Used with Demco Hijacker Autoslide 5th Wheel Hitch
    You can certainly use a lube plate with the Demco Hijacker Autoslide # DM8550034 but it isn't quite as necessary as it is with many other hitches because the hitch head actually rotates with the pin box. Demco also doesn't outright recommend one with this particular hitch. If you do decide to add one to further prevent wear I recommend the Reese 12" Lube Plate # RP83004 because of its larger diameter that covers more space on the hitch and the 1/8 inch thickness (a bit thinner than...

  • 5TH Wheel Hitch For Recessed Gooseneck Ball on a 2016 Ford F-550
    For your 2016 Ford F-550 that has the bed with recessed gooseneck I recommend the Demco Recon Gooseneck-to-5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter # DM8550046. This hitch does require that the top of your gooseneck ball must be within 13/16" of the top of the bed. It is rated for 21,000lbs towing and 5,250lbs of tongue weight. Your recessed opening must be at least 8" long x 5" wide for this hitch to fit into that opening. I recommend using a Lube Plate # RP83004 with any 5th wheel to reduce...

    The Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30870 that you referenced does come complete with an integrated lube plate on the hitch head. With this included feature it is not necessary to use an add-on lube plate like # RP83004, nor is it necessary to use grease. For reference I have linked a video that details the features of the excellent Reese R20 dual-jaw 5th wheel slider hitch.

  • Gooseneck to 5TH Wheel Adapter using Reese/Draw-Tite Gooseneck Hitch
    I have a solution as your Draw-Tite Gooseneck # 9468-94 will not allow for a 5th Wheel Adapter. The 5th wheel adapters such as # C16210 require a locking pin that is slid through the hitch and that is something the Reese/Draw-Tite does not have. I recommend using the Demco Recon #DM8550045. This 5th Wheel hitch will drop onto your gooseneck ball and clamp to it. It is capable of towing 5th wheels up to 21,000lbs and pin weights of 4,000lbs. Please ensure you do not exceed the maximum...
