Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel King Pin SWW-06 Review

Today we are going to review part number SWW-06. This is the 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B & W Fifth Wheels. Now this wedge is designed to work with the Sidewinder and 5th Airborne Sidewinder pin boxes. This will replace the universal wedge that comes with the Sidewinder and the 5th Airborne Sidewinder. It is a custom wedge. It is designed specifically to fit the B & W hitches. It's made for the B & W Patriot, which attaches to rails, and the B & W Companion, which is for the Ford and the Ram OEM systems that have the 4-puck attachment. This wedge, when it's installed, will prevent the pivoting at the the fifth-wheel hitch draws.

Basically, when it comes with a nice set of instructions, comes with the 2, 5/8 inch bolts and lock-washers. Basically, when you go to install this, what you want to do is, the narrow end here of the wedge, will point towards the front of the pin box. The recessed part right here is facing down. This will go on to the pin box. Put your bolts up through there. Do the same there, and then you'll go ahead tight those down.

You just snug them, you don't want to tightness then all the way down until you slide your Sidewinder into the hitch itself. Once it's in there, you adjust it correctly and torque it down to the correct specifications. Once that's installed, that'll keep it from rotating at the fifth-wheel head, and it'll rotate where the pin box or the Sidewinder is attached. That should do it for the review on part number SWW-06. This is the 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B & W Fifth Wheels. .

5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B&W Fifth Wheels - SWW-06

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (80 Customer Reviews)


by:

The wedge itself is of great quality but if you're buying this for use on a Reese sidewinder be advised that the bolts provided are too small to attach the wedge to the sidewinder. In addition, the channel on the wedge is too narrow to accept the correct fitting bolts. I had to do quite a bit of grinding to make the wedge work with the sidewinder hitch.



by:

The wedge I bought for my Reese Sidewinder fifth wheel hitch is a pretty simple product, so it works great. It's basically a custom-made, wedge-shaped piece of steel for my 16 k B&W hitch, which keeps the trailer from rotating on the hitch. I was glad to be able to get the exact part I needed through etrailer. More importantly, I have gotten some really good help and advice from the folks there at etrailer.



by:

I have a Turning Point pin box on my 5th wheel. This is the wedge to use. No problems after one year.
Follow up to my comment. My Turning Point pin box has started to sag and creak so, I have removed the wedge and stabilized the pin box. I am going to try towing with the pivot point at the hitch. I have my B&D hitch set at the rear most setting so hopefully there will be no issue with my short bed Ford 6 3/4 feet



by:

As advised



by:

As ordered and also was a day later in delivery



by:

Etrailer waited out the supplier and kept me informed on the possible delivery date. When the part became available they contacted me and we completed the transaction. Thanks for being dedicated to your customers.

Although I have not installed the wedge yet I have test fit in the hitch and it appears it will resolve my issue providing a better fitment between the hitch and the pin box.

The custom wedge works great.

Works well, the B&W hitch pulls it in to a solid locking position.



by:

by:

Still working great. This wedge works perfectly. Definitely a little tricky to hitch and unhitch because there is no room for error because you have to be lined up perfectly but this combination with the Sidewinder and my B&W companion is working great.



by:

All is good. The Sidewinder wedge arrived ahead of schedule. I like the service of E-trailer.



by:

Awesome 5th wheel hitch. Easy to install and remove for a clean bed. Combined with a sidewinder pin box i can make 90 degree turns with standard bed silverado.



by:

I do have it on but haven’t pulled the RV yet, it fits the hitch very well



by:

Everything went as planned as always, but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. I’m sure it will work fine.



by:

Arrived sooner than expected. Well made.



by:

Easy to install and remains tight against hitch pin



by:

Works awsome. I used the universal one (that came with my trailer) for 6 trips and it started to damage my hitch. This one has not left a single mark. It is solid and easy to install.
I would recommend.



by:

sometimes it's hard to get hitch to lock. has put some gauges in 5th wheel. works good most of the time, tight fit.



by:

I can turn 100degrees with a 6.5 foot b ed.
