Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel King Pin SWW-09 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to take a look at the 5th Airborne Sidewinder custom wedge for the PullRite fifth wheels. Now, a fifth wheel wedge is a simple but reliable way to allow a fifth wheel hitch to be used with a fifth wheel Sidewinder pin box. The custom wedge will bolt in place of the universal wedge on the pin box, and it provides a new pivot point for the kingpin and a wider turn radius for the fifth wheel trailer.So to keep the pin box from swiveling at the fifth wheel hitch head, this custom wedge will bolt onto the pin box, and then it inserts into the hitch head and locks the pin box into place. And since the pivot point had been moved towards the rear of your tow vehicle, you can easily make 90 degree turns, even with a short bed truck. Now, this fifth wheel wedge is designed to fit the PullRite fifth wheels, and it will accommodate the Sidewinder or the 5th Airborne Sidewinder pin boxes. You can see it has a nice, durable carbide black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion.

This part will include everything here on the table, the wedge and the mounting bolts to install it. But that should do it for the review on the 5th Airborne Sidewinder Custom Wedge for PullRite fifth wheels.

Just what I needed for my Pullrite Hitch and Airborne Sidewinder on my Outback 5th wheel.


Comments
Works Great. Much tighter in the 5th wheel plate taking all slack out. Much better than the universal plate provided with the Reese Sidewinder. Item was used on a Pullrite Hitch.

  • Can Reese Custom Wedge For Reese Revolution Pin Box Work With Lippert Turning Point?
    The 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for Pullrite Fifth Wheels # SWW-09 you were looking at will fit your Pullrite 5th wheel hitch perfectly, and will work just fine with your Lippert Turning Point Pin Box as it is a very similar in design to the Reese Sidewinder and Revolution Pin Boxes. We have had quite a few customers use these wedges in their Turning Point and mention it fits like a glove. I included a video of the # SWW-09 for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Reese Sidewinder/Revolution Wedge for PullRite 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Reese Revolution and the Reese Sidewinder are the same product. For the OEM market, Reese gave it the Revolution name, and for the aftermarket, it's called the Sidewinder. Two different names for the same item. For your PullRite fifth wheel hitch, the # SWW-09 would be the correct wedge for your Reese Revolution. Reese tells me that they developed a specific wedge for the PullRite because the universal wedge didn't work all that well hitch the hitch. If you click the provided...

  • Is Pullrite Sidewinder Wedge # SWW-09 Compatible with Pullrite SuperGlide 2700 Hitch
    The 5th Airborne Custom Wedge # SWW-09 is not designed to be used with your Pullrite SuperGlide 2700 (or any automatic sliding 5th wheel hitch), so I cannot recommend using it instead of a capture plate. A Pullrite Quick Capture Plate is a required component of your SuperGlide hitch system, and from what I understand, it also has a Capture Wedge integrated into the plate, so that's what you'd need to use. Additionally, Sidewinders cannot be used with the Pullrite SuperGlide hitch. This...

  • 5th Airborne Sidewinder for an Open Range Roamer with Lippert 1716 Pin Box
    5th Airborne Sidewinder # RP61412 is a fit for a trailer with a factory Lippert 1716 pin box! The use of a Sidewinder can put additional stress on the trailer frame. I have not had any customers complain to me about this causing problems though. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you.

  • Can a Sidewinder Pin Box be Used with a Pullrite 1300 Ford Hitch Prep Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The Pullrite 1300 hitch you have is a stationary hitch so it would work just fine with a Sidewinder 5th Airborne pin box as long as you use the correct wedge, part # SWW-09. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number that is on the trailer. Once you figure out which pin box you have you can...

  • Can Reese OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30918 in 2015 Ram 2500 Tow Trailer w/ Reese Revolution Kingpin Box
    Yes, the Reese OEM 5th Wheel Hitch, # RP30918, for your 2015 Ram 2500 with 6ft bed and prep package, can be used to tow a trailer that is equipped with a Reese Revolution pin box. You'll also need the custom wedge kit # RP44FR to prevent the king pin of the Revolution from pivoting in the jaws of the # RP30918. I have attached an article which is packed with information on the Sidewinder (the aftermarket version of the Reese Revolution) that you may find helpful.

  • Compatibility of a Reese Revolution Pin Box With a SuperGlide 5th Wheel Hitch
    I spoke with my contact for Reese and he said it is not recommended to use your Reese Revolution pin box with your SuperGlide. It is possible to lockout the turret of your pin box and remove the wedge allowing the pin box to rotate at the hitch, however, if the sidewinder sits below the top of your bed rails, then the pin box can hit and damage your truck bed while sliding or pivoting. You will also have to attach a capture plate to your pin box to allow the pin box to rotate at the hitch....

  • Is Wedge Required When Using Reese Revolution Pin Box With Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch
    You will definitely want to use a wedge when towing because the wedge locks the king pin in place and moves the pivot point back 22 inches allowing you to make turns with the fifth wheel. If your Husky 15K hitch in the truck has dual jaws, the universal wedge that came with the Revolution should work for you. If you cannot lock the jaw on your fifth wheel hitch with the universal wedge that came with your Revolution, my contact at Reese said the wedge that will work is part # SWW-04....

  • Options To Eliminate Excessive Gap Between Truck Bed Rails And Fifth Wheel Trailer
    There are a couple things you can do to eliminate the gap you have between your F-250 and the fifth wheel trailer. If you have a lift kit on the truck you can remove it. The second option would be to remove your fifth wheel hitch and rails and replace it with a fifth wheel hitch like the Demco Hijacker SL Series Flat Deck 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, part # DM6076SL-FLAT. The hitch height when installed is 10 inches. Since you cannot use a slider with the Sidewinder you will need to lock...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer with Revolution Pin Box Almost Hits Cab on 2016 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    First, if using a Revolution pin box with a slider hitch the hitch will need to stay locked in the towing position at all times. Otherwise it could but substantial stress behind the rear axle of the 2016 Ford F-150. Second, the Revolution pin box may have the turret locked out (if there are 2 bolts on the bottom of the arm going up into the turret then this is the case) and that will not allow the trailer to pivot at the turret; which could be what is causing the problem. The Revolution...

  • Will a Trailair Air Ride Replacement Pin Box Work with a Pullrite 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
    I spoke with my contact at Trailair and he stated that their air ride pin boxes can be used with a Pullrite slider 5th wheel hitch like your Pullrite Super 20.5k in your 2007 Ford Super Duty.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 and Trailer w/Revolution Pin Box
    Since the trailer comes with the Reese Revolution pin box you will not use a slider hitch. You will need to use a fixed hitch. The Revolution moves the pivot point of the trailer back 22 inches which is why a slider is not used. To start you will need an installation kit for your 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 with 5-1/2 foot bed. I recommend custom kit # RP50064-58. Custom kits are great because there is no frame drilling required for installation so they install in less time compared to universal...

  • Trailer Hitch Option for 2012 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2ft Bed and 5th Wheel with Reese Revolution Pin Box
    Since your fifth wheel trailer has a Reese Revolution pin box, you will want a fixed(standard) fifth wheel hitch. The Revolution pin box will offer the necessary turning clearance and it is not recommend to use a sliding fifth wheel hitch with a Revolution pin box. One fifth wheel hitch that I recommend looking at is the Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30928. This hitch has the premium single hook jaw and and a wide head for ultimate hitch to pin box contact and stability. This...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation that Leaves a Clear Bed when Removed in a 2003 Ford F-250
    I have a great recommendation for you but the B&W Companion set up in your 2003 Ford F-250 is not going to work with a Sidewinder pin box. The reason is that the single attachment point of the Companion in the gooseneck ball hole is not sufficient for the force the Sidewinder will apply to the hitch head and it can end up twisting the hitch in the ball hole mount causing damage. What I recommend is to use Reese under bed installation kit # RP30073 with M5 Series hitch # RP30921. With...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F250 with Hitch Prep for use with a Reese Revolution
    It sounds like you have the Ford Hitch Prep package in your 2014 Ford F-250 and that you also have a short bed truck based on your slider hitch concerns. Using a Reese Revolution would be the absolute best option you have since it would mean that you do not need a slider hitch and you would have the clearance to make tight turns. Since you have the underbed rail kit I would recommend an Elite hitch since those are designed to work with your rail kit and can work with Reese Revolutions...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch/Install Kit for 2008 Toyota Tundra w/5-1/2 Foot Bed, Trailer w/Revolution Pin Box
    For your 2008 Toyota Tundra with 5-1/2 foot bed you can use the semi-custom installation kit # RP30035-309. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right. Then all you need is a hitch. Since the trailer weighs only 7,500 pounds you can use a 16K hitch such as # RP30047, which will provide you with a much more secure dual jaw connection. I have linked video reviews of both hitches for you. Pro Series is also made by Reese. As to where you can get these parts,...

  • Will Reese 5th Wheel Install Kit for 2008 F-250 Also Fit 2015 F-250 to Use Reese Elite Series Hitch
    The Reese Elite under-bed 5th wheel rail kit that fits your 2008 F-250 is part # RP30073. The correct under-bed kit that fits your 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty is part # RP30126. The 2008 and 2015 model years of the F-250 are parts of different generations of the truck (11th and 13th) and so they require a different rail kit.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Install Kit for 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 and Trailer w/Revolution Pin Box
    Since your trailer already has a Reese Revolution pin box you will need to install a fixed hitch in your 20014 GMC Sierra short bed. The Revolution pin box moves the pivot point of the trailer back so a slider hitch is not needed, nor can a slider be used with the Revolution if the slider is in the slid-back position. First you will need an installation kit. I recommend a custom installation kit, # RP50064-58, which minimizes that amount of drilling required to complete the installation....

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch For 2016 Ram 2500 With Revolution Pin Box On Trailer
    For your 2016 Ram 2500 6 foot bed with factory rail kit, because you are using a Revolution Pin box I recommend the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for Ram Towing Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16545-16021. This 5th wheel hitch will fit perfectly in your factory rail kit and will give you the strength you need. I've attached a video for you reviewing this hitch. There isn't a specific wedge kit for this hitch, but you may want the Replacement Universal Wedge for 5th Airborne...

  • Replacement Wedge for Reese Revolution/Sidewinder Rotating 5th Wheel Pin Box
    If the wedge on the Revolution is showing wear, it's definitely a good idea to replace it, as it could allow some side to side movement of the pin box at the king pin which is undesirable. This usually occurs when a universal wedge is used. They fit fairly well, but because they don't completely conform to the hitch funnel in the skid plate, wear can occur over time. The wedges are hitch specific, the exact wedge needed will be determined by the 5th wheel hitch you're using. For...

  • Adapting Reese Revolution Pin Box and PullRite SuperGlide 5th Wheel Hitch
    Generally speaking, it is not recommended to use a Revolution or Sidewinder pin box with any type of sliding 5th wheel hitch. The risk is that these two different pivot points could result in loss of control of the trailer and/or damage to the truck or trailer. I cannot be sure of exactly what effects your dealer's alternations will have, but we do offer a 5th wheel wedge designed specifically for use with PullRite hitches, part # SWW-09. This custom-fit wedge will prevent the king pin...

    Groaning noises typically is the sound of friction between too metal surfaces that have quite a bit of weight between them. Are you using the correct Sidewinder wedge for your Pullrite hitch part # SWW-09? If not that would be the first thing I would check. You will need to grease the skid plate and around the wedge on the Sidewinder too if you haven't.

  • Replacement 5th Wheel Pin Box for Lippert 1621HD to Provide Better Clearance in Truck Bed
    The best option in a replacement 5th wheel pin box for your trailer to avoid clearance issues with the bed rails is a Sidewinder. A Sidewinder replacement pin box moves the trailer pivot point rearward by 22-inches. This means that the pin box itself will no longer pivot in the hitch (it will be locked in place by a custom wedge # SWW-09), but instead the trailer will pivot at the rear of the Sidewinder, 22-inches further back. This means the pin box remains in a steady position relative...

    The 5th Airborne coupler you can use to replace your Lippert 1621, is part # 5AB-E1621-610. This king pin helps reduce shock and relieves stress on the coach frame. I have attached a link to an installation video for this coupler you can check out.
