Video Transcript for Reese Accessories and Parts 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. .

Hard to find product- Thanks for smooth efficient transaction ! 107405


5th wheel hitch is extra heavy duty, and works flawlessly. Provides great peace of mind when towing that heavy rig !

I have placed several orders with this company; however, lately items are always out of stock, and customer service tells you how busy (3,000 daily orders) they are. AVOID THIS COMPANY. I cancelled my order and if they start to lose business maybe they will wake up...or not. Oh, customer service told me this morning they always send out emails advising of the delay, she realized a notice was not sent to me until todays notice, GO ELSEWHERE WITH YOUR MONEY! 399479

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. 295720

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!! 383387

- RP83004


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. 244348

1/8th inch lube plate for 5th wheel hitch. 2nd purchase and products are the best quality. Quick delivery and the most knowledgeable staff. 330251

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? 180799

- RP83004


This is a thin disk and fits my application better that the thick lube disk. No more grease on the plate surface, yeah! 280584


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.

Ask the Experts about this Reese Accessories and Parts
Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • 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.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, Install Kit, and Helper Springs for a 2013 Ford F-150
  • Fifth wheel trailer hitch installation kit # RP56006-53 is an excellent choice for your 2013 Ford F-150. The brackets install on the outboard sides of the frame rails so as not to interfere with other accessories and for ease of installation. The Titan 20K hitch # RP30867 is a good option and lube plate # RP83004 is the correct model for the hitch. The Air Lift system # AL57200 could be a problem because part of the upper bracket comes up on the outboard sides of the frame rails....

  • Availability of a Friction Plate for a Reese Sidewinder 5th Wheel King Pin
  • 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.

  • Is Reese Lube Plate # RP83004 Needed with Reese R20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30870
  • 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.

  • Are Lube Plates Required with the Use of a Sidewinder
  • 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. With the Sidewinder part # RP61420 you wouldn't have to try and transfer over your lube plate at all from your slider hitch. You should note that you can use a slider hitch...

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch And Bed Rails For 2015 Ford F-150
  • The Reese Titan 16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider, part # RP30869 will work great with your 2015 F-150. The RP30869 offers a hitch height from 16-1/2 to 19-1/4 inches, and has a gross towing weight capacity of 16,000 lbs. With the higher side of the truck bed sides, you are wise in looking for a system that will work for you. For additional height you may want to check out the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Round Tube Slider, part # RP30870. This has a height...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2013 Ford F-150
  • For your 2013 Ford F-150 6.5 foot bed I recommend the Reese Titan 16 Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30869. The premium serrated dual jaw on the Titan provides an even, secure closure, ensuring the king pin has 360 degrees of contact in the trailer hitch. This secure connection means the trailer will have minimal jarring and chucking. The # RP30075 has dual jaws as well, but the Titan is Reese's step up from their traditional fifth wheel hitch. The lube plate Reese recommends for use...
