Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit RP30154 Review

Today, we're going to review part number RP30154. This is the Reese 5th wheel rail adapter for the Ram OEM 5th wheel towing prep package, has a 25,000-pound weight capacity. Now, this adapter right here will allow you to use your standard above-bed 5th wheel trailer hitch with your Ram factory under-bed 5th wheel towing prep package. The adapter will mount into the factory sockets and it supplies the truck bed base rails that are needed to install your 5th wheel hitch too. This part does include everything shown here. It includes this adapter, includes the four end caps. The end caps would basically pop on the end right there.

Now, it does also include these four heavy-duty anchors which are these bolts and nuts, and basically those will be used in a case of if you're going to tow over 20,000 pounds. When you put your 5th wheel hitch into these rails instead of using the standard pins and clips that comes with it, it is required to use these heavy-duty bolts and lock nuts if you're going to go over 20,000 pounds towing. It also comes with these bail pins, and these bail pins would be used to lock these handles into place. Basically, the way this would operate is to drop this into your Ram factory under-bed prep package, you'd just swing these handles open like this; two on this side, two on this side. When you swing these open, it moves this anchor about 90 degrees and that will allow you with all four of them opened to drop it into the pucks on your factory system on your Ram. Once they're dropped into the pucks, you would just rotate these handles this way, one this way, and it rotates that anchor 90 degrees and it'll lock it into the puck. Then, what you'll do is take this bail pin and just go ahead and open this bail pin up.

Drop it through. There is holes in the handles and then holes in the adapter. Then, you just clip that into place and then that keeps those from opening, so it keeps it lock to the pucks on your factory under-bed system here. Now, again this will convert your factory installed under-bed 5th wheel mounting kit from the Ram to give you these standard above-bed 5th wheel base rails. They do mount to the OEM pucks or the sockets in your truck bed. This unit drops into the pucks, locks in place like I was just showing you, so you could basically use a 5th wheel trailer hitch that attaches to standard above-bed rails. There is no drilling or welding required.

Everything is a black powder coat steel construction. Again as I mentioned about these heavy-duty anchors, just to reiterate again. If this adapter is used to tow anything over 20,000 pounds, it is required to use these heavy-duty anchors to hold the 5th wheel hitch to this adapter instead of the standard pins and clips. Again, maximum capacity is 25,000 pounds. This does work with the Reese slider hitches, RP30048, RP30092, and RP50024, and this part does come with a limited lifetime warranty. That should do it for the review on part number RP30154, the Reese 5th wheel rail adapter for the Ram OEM 5th wheel towing prep package. .

Searched for a solution for mounting a PullRite Super-slide and this frame adapter did the trick. Installs quickly and is easily removed allowing full box utilization. It is identical to the factory optional adapter only hundreds less costly. Did require minor adjustment but instructions were clear and easy to do. Used with Industry standard Rail mounted hitches. 107315


Comments

So you were able to put a PullRite Super slide hitch on this adapter? I have a PullRite hitch it is not a super slide and it doesnt fit on this adapter.

comment by: Lindsey - 01/28/2014

Certain PullRite hitches use a narrower spread than most. This rail adapter does not provide the most narrow slot set. If your hitch tabs are narrower than the slots on the adapter, I would bet that your PullRite is one of those models.

Comments

Fantastic. I have installed and removed the adapter frame several times. Im 70 years old and it was no bother for my wife and I to remove both the PullRite hitch and the adapter frame. I have ordered other products from E-trailer and all have done exactly what they described, They are an excellent resource and provide value as well as advise.

The Reese 5th wheel adapter fit very well. The only problem was getting the cotter pins out to make the snugness adjustment. The instructions could have been better. It took a while to realize that there were 2 different adjustments, not one. The one inch wrench is for the positioning (front-back, side to side) of the pins into the bed. No adjustment was necessary with this and I did not need the 1 inch wrench. However, the "T" was loose as the pins were set a little deep into the bed. Once (an hour later) I got the cotter pins out I screwed the T ends about 4 - half turns into the handle so that there was no vertical play. Then reinsert the cotter pins, set the Reese adapter back into the holes, give the handles a 1/2 turn and lock them into place with that snap lock. Reese needs to make it easier to get those pins out. The Pullrite 4409 baserail adapter fit perfectly onto the Reese RAM adapter, and then my old hitch fit perfectly onto the Pullrite adapter. (The only annoying thing is that I now have a hitch that is 7 inches higher than it used to be. But that is not Reese's fault. Darn those truck manufacturers. The trailer tongue can be moved up 2 inches to mitigate a little.) 157248

Worked beautifully first time this past weekend with my Pro series 16k. Simple to install. The odd thing was that I had to turn the center locking pins upside down and have them in place just before dropping into the trucks peg holes. Otherwise the bed floor is to close on I was unable to close the pin properly. Once I figured this out, it was smooth sailing. Came just as easy. 198319

Still working great after a full year! Durable and strong and makes mounting the hitch easy and quick.

Arrived as scheduled, UPS driver delivered Ram Oem Adapter For Above-bed 5th Wheel Hitches (RP30154) right to my 2016, 2500 4x4, RAM truck where I unpackaged & installed in less than an hour. Took me a few hours longer to place, attach and adjust the Reese 16K hitch to the proper height. The 4x4 height required the hitch to be lowered. Fantastic pre sales support aided in the proper selection & order at a reduced cost. 237768

Fit good. Directions say to use bolts instead of pins if trailer is over certain weight. I have know idea how barely enough room for pins. No problems with etrailer though 117715

Had to make minor adjustments. All the cotter pins broke when removed, but was going to replace with new stainless pins anyway. Hooked up the 5th wheel and went for a test run of about 20 miles over various roads, to see if I needed to adjust the rail adapter pins. No adjustment needed so far. Pleased with the adapter so I can use my 20K hitch. Did notice the hitch has a very small amount of forward/reverse movement in the rail adapter. Am going to search for rubber bushings. I can hear it is the only reason I would like to limit the movement to zero. Very happy overall. Have done business w/etrailer before, and have no complaints. 214828

Did you ever find any rubber bushings to elimate the movement?

This adapter for my RAM with the Towing Prep fit perfectly! I was originally concerned I'd have to make adjustments, but once I turned the locking handles, it was snug to the floor with no movement! HINT: Insert the locking Bail Pins into the holes in the rail before your final install! The install video shows the tech just dropping the Bail Pins into the hole. Not that smooth in real life. There is little to no space between the bottom of the rails and the truck bed. I couldn't snap the Bail pins unless I placed them in the hole first. Then just work the locking handles over the end of the bail pin ( the handles have some flexibility). Very happy with this adapter. 193998

awesome product 105327


Comments

Appears to be well made. Mine didnt come with instructions. I sheared off a cotter pin trying to lock one of the handles. Thats when I realized one of the corners needed adjusting.Personally, Im disappointed in the way it locks down. Once you bolt the hitch onto the adapter, you have to unbolt it EVERY TIME you need to remove it, because the hitch prevents you from turning the 4 handles! This is a pain when I want to use the gooseneck hitch, and I have to purchase new lock nuts each time.The Etrailer price was the best I found, and it only took a couple of days to arrive, once it was off of a 3 week backorder.

The reese adapter came assembled and looked good. I had a slight bug getting it in my OEM slots as the front slots were 3/8" wider then the rear. Rears dropped right in. I called the original owner of the truck and he had the same issue... A little "persuasion" and it went right in. No fault on Reese, but RAM and their assembly guys in the old country... 183517

This frame is very stout and will do the job no question. The only thing is that it is heavy and not that easy to take in and out of the bed. I also found it will not work with my rubber bed mat. It would be nice if Reese made an all in one setup like on the Fords. The problem with the all in one setups available are that they are to tall, the B&W is over 17.5'' tall, I need it around 14'' to 15''. This frame and the Reese Pro together measures off my bed to the top plate 16''. 119789

Purchased Reese 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter for a Ram 3500 with 5th wheel prep. Easy to order, great service, delivered ahead of schedule. Installation instructions a little confusing, but went slow and had frame adjusted and locked in about 45 minutes. Rock solid connection, tows great. Really like the ability to easily remove at the end of camping season and have a clean, flush bed. I won't miss the permanent bed rails. Will buy from etrailer.com again. Thanks. 200356

The order came very quickly and was in good shape. Except, the cotter pins were missing. I had to use my own but they probably should be a hardened grade. Had to adjust the pin heights to get a tight fit. After all that it dropped in a fit good. FYI- the missing cotters are probably fault of Reese, not etrailer but maybe they should do an inspection before ship. Still will buy my truck/trailer stuff from them. 236679

works very well with my 2015 ram 2500 factory puck system- I did have to modify my lil rocker 5th wheel hitch to work with this unit- relatively easy to take out- I leave it in most of the time during the summer- unless I need an absolutely flat bed- I cut holes and formed my old bed mat to work with the hitch adapter- it saved on buying a new 5th wheel hitch with a puck system- it worked for me 247284



- RP30154

by: Mark Y04/06/2016


I ordered the adapter on Sunday, 3 April. Here it is Wednesday, 6 April and the adapter is here already. No room for any form of complaint there. Now, all I need is a truck to put it in. That is why I need a new adapter. I ordered the truck on Friday, and it will be 6 to 8 weeks before I get a chance to install it. With the available adjustments, that should not be a problem. Great service. 243122

by: Ty K.03/31/2016


works great. only thing I don't like is that to take the hitch out of the truck you have to take it apart. the locking bars wont rotate to the unlocking point with the hitch on top. 242467

I have a 2015 Ram 3500. This product did not properly fit right and took over 2 hours to get it "close" as Reese would say. The locking arms we're also in the wrong place. This product says that it can easily be put in. I'm a mechanic on the side and this was no easy project. Should have just bought oem. If time is money then this product cosy more than what it should. 212100

Product was fine , minor tuning and the unit worked as describe. The only problem was the shipping. The box looked as if it had been somewhat trashed on the corners and the box staples were half open. Fortunately all parts were still in box. Damage to the unit consisted of a bent control arm, which I was able to repair with a little help of a couple of crescent wrenches. 212182

Everything came in as described and in good condition. No hassles / No problems. That's what I like. 5th wheel tow prep package for Ram 3500 works great and makes a clean installation. Reese rail adapter was built heavy duty. The thing must weigh 50lbs. Way easier than drilling the bed! Wish more companies provided the level of information that these guys do. 150088

Awesome product, came 1 day earlier than expected. I read a reviews by others before I ordered adapter.

Thanks for the quick service. Would highly recommend company and the Reese adapter. 215459

Excellent product and great service. Took 5 minutes to install was adjusted perfectly. Just removed the pucks and dropped it in place. Worked great with my Husky 16K EZ roller hitch. Only thing I would recommend is that call takers have a little more information about the application of the product with other hitchs for the new Dodge below bed rail system. 147483

Overall, an excellent product for a much less price than the OEM product. One minor issue of a hitch pin hole not quit lining up and had to be ground a slight bit but was not much. The product came assembled and fit perfectly when turning the locking pins. I'd recommend this product to everyone needing the 5th wheel hitch adapter for the Ram pickup. 124979

I received my Reese RP30154 hitch adapter a few days after ordering. I thought it would be a couple of weeks before it came. It's much heavier than I thought it would be and looks well built. I can't give it much of a review now, because the truck I ordered won't arrive until mid April. I will give a follow up after instalation. 180457

by: JD07/07/2014


After some adjusting of the "T pin anchors the adaptor seems to work as described however, the cotter pins that secure the "T pin anchor" to the anchor handles will shear off easily if there is any resistance while turning the handles. Suggest replacing the aluminum cotter pins with something more substantial. 139822

This product fit into my 2014 dodge just fine. I would suggest making the end caps a different way, when you try to install them they tear and mess up one corner. The locking bars could be smaller so you can unlock it with out having to take the head off to remove the base. 124233

  • Best Way to Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer With 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Factory Tow Prep Package
  • In my opinion, the best way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with the OEM fifth wheel prep package is to use a fifth wheel hitch that fits the in-bed pucks in your truck bed. You have several hitch options that will work, but my favorite is the B&W Companion 25K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600. This hitch will drop right into the pucks in the truck bed and once it is removed, you will have full access to your bed. Curt also makes fifth wheel hitches for the...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2016 RAM 3500 Short Bed w/ Puck System Towing 2015 Cedar Creek
  • Although many trailer manufacturers are now designing their trailers with the tapered fronts to be more aerodynamic and also to help increase turning clearance, our hitch manufacturers are still going to recommend using a hitch with a slider opposed to a stationary hitch. Using a slider helps to compensate for the reduced turning clearance on a short bed pickup. Since your 2016 Ram 3500 will be equipped with the puck system, I recommend going with the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch...

  • Recommendation for a Fifth Wheel Slider for 2016 Ram 2500 with OEM Prep Package
  • Good news, I can help you find what you need for your 2016 Ram 2500. The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154 will allow you to mount a sliding hitch like the 20K Reese # RP30870 in it. This 20K hitch will accommodate your toy haulers hitch weight better than a 16K hitch would. It is important to note that this setup may still not give you the turning clearance you are looking for and you could instead go with a fixed hitch like # PS30121 and a Sidewinder, like the one that fits...

  • Fifth Wheel Towing Options for 2014 Ram Truck w/ Factory Tow Prep Package
  • When the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter is installed, the fifth wheel hitch will be centered between the front and rear pucks. If you measure the distance between the front and rear pucks, and divide that by half, this will show you exactly where the king pin of the fifth wheel will lock into the jaws. I have linked you to a photo showing this. Typically, the king pin will sit within 2 inches forward of the rear axle centerline. If you have the 6 foot bed, you will need to use a sliding...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kit for a 2014 Ram 2500 without Factory Prep Package
  • For your 2014 Ram 2500 without the factory prep package you can use Curt installation kit # C16427-104. The rails that are included with this kit will accept any Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley 5th wheel trailer hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you.

  • If your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel has the factory 5th wheel towing prep package with the OEM pucks (or sockets) in the truck bed then you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Adapter that you referenced, part # RP30154. This works with both 6- and 8-foot beds. Please refer to the linked photo. This adapter serves as the equivalent of standard above-bed base rails and your Reese 16K Slider (or other industry-standard) hitch can mount directly to it without need for base rails. If you Ram 2500...

  • Ram OEM 5th Wheel Package Adapter Recommendation for Standard 5th Wheel Hitches
  • The adapter that your customer has for his 2011 Ford truck fifth wheel package will not work with the OEM fifth wheel package on the 2013 and 2014 Ram trucks. The OEM fifth wheel package on the Ram trucks have a different foot print, meaning the pucks in the truck bed are spaced further apart than the pucks on Ford trucks. If your customer chooses to go with a 2013 or 2014 Ram truck with the OEM fifth wheel package, then he will want the Reese Elite Series Rail Adapter, # RP30154. This...

  • Rail Kit Adapter Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 2500 for Reese Slider Hitch
  • I have a solution for you, but the part # C16022 is designed to only work with Curt sliders. You instead would need the part # RP30154 as it will fit the hitch prep package of your 2015 Ram 2500 and will work with your Reese 15k slider hitch.

  • If your 2015 Ram 2500 with 6-foot bed has the factory 5th wheel prep package you can install any industry-standard 5th wheel hitch by using the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. This adapter drops into the factory pucks in the bed and provides the equivalent of standard 5th wheel base rails that will accept most industry-standard sliders like Curt # C16560. If the truck does not have the factory puck system and you want to re-use your existing 5th wheel base rails you can use Reese...

  • If your 2013 Ram 3500 has an 8-foot bed with the Factory Rail Kit you can use one of the three 5th wheel hitches shown on the link provided. All are rated for 20K and all require use of the Reese Rail Kit Mounting Adapter, part # RP30154, in order to work with the RAM OEM under-bed rail kit. Please note that none of these hitches can be used in trucks with a flare-side or step-side bed. The three hitches differ in their features.

  • Will the Reese Dodge Adapter part # RP30154 Work with a Pullrite 4100 SuperGlide
  • No it won't the Pullrite 4100 that you have is only designed to work with Pullrite Rails. If you had the Pullrite ISR hitch that is designed to fit industry standard rails their part number 2700 then it would be compatible with the Reese Dodge Adapter part # RP30154.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Comparison Reese 16k 30047 Vs. Curt Q16
  • Based on our experiences here I would recommend the Reese 16k hitch part # RP30047 over the Curt hitch part # C16120 that you referenced. The Reese hitch seems to be a bit more reliable and the Curt Q series comes back more often with damage around the jaws of the hitch. Both hitches will work great, but since the Reese is a bit lighter and tends to have fewer issues I would recommend that route for you. This hitch would work well with the Mopar Adapter part # RP30154 that you referenced.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Puck System
  • One of the most quiet 5th wheel hitches on the market is the Reese Titan 5th Wheel Hitch. For your short bed truck, I recommend the Reese Titan 20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch with Round Tube Slider # RP30870. To fit this hitch to the puck system in your truck bed, you can use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. The Titan offers a smooth, quieter ride thanks to the cast pivot beam in the hitch, and heavy-duty dampeners minimize rattle and noise. This sliding hitch offers 11 inches...

When the fifth wheel hitch is removed, you would have full, unobstructed use of your truck bed. You would also have the advantage of being able to tow a gooseneck trailer if the need should arise.

  • Will a Pullrite SuperGlide Fit 2015 Ram 3500 with Factory Prep Package Using Reese Adapter
  • Unless Pullrite makes an adapter that fits your new 2015 Ram 3500 with the prep package that also accommodates the SuperGlide you will have to get a different hitch. The SuperGlide does not fit adapter # RP30154. For your 2015 ram 3500 with factory prep package there are a couple of options for hitches that fit directly into the 4 pucks. I would go with B&W hitch # BWRVK3600 because if you have a short bed truck you can adjust the position of the head further back for more clearance. Or...

If your Power Pull Glider uses industry standard rails, like part # RP58058, then you could use the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter, # RP30154, to mount your Valley fifth wheel in your 2016 Ram 3500. As for a Curt hitch, I would recommend the following sliding fifth wheel hitches, # C16521 for 16K, # C16536 for 20K, and # C16546 for 24K. These sliding hitches will require the use of Adapter Rail, # C16022. The factory prep packages do not include a hitch...

You will not need to purchase any additional items with this adapter if your truck has the Dodge Ram OEM Fifth Wheel Prep Package. This adapter allows you to use a standard fifth wheel hitch that uses the industry standard above-bed base rails with your Dodge OEM Fifth Wheel package.

The Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Glider # HT31318-32042 that you referenced fits industry standard rails so it will work for you with your Mopar bracket.

  • 5th Wheel Base Rail Adapter for Use in 2016 Ram 3500 Mega Cab
  • Reese adapter part # RP30154 fits into the factory 5th wheel pucks in your 2016 Ram 3500 to provide the equivalent of industry standard rails (ISRs). This adapter adds 2-inches of height to your hitch set up. In some cases a Pull-Rite hitch can have a slider with enough travel that it could place extra stresses on the adapter, so I urge you to check with Pull-Rite (since we do not carry their hitches) by giving them your hitch part number to ensure they have no compatibility concerns...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • The best option for a short bed truck like yours is to go with a Sidewinder as it will give you 22 more inches of pivot point clearance (much more than a slider hitch), and won't require you to get out and activate the slider mechanism of the fifth wheel hitch when you get to parking lot and then again when you are leaving the parking lot. The B and W Companion # BWRVK3600 will fit your Ram hitch prep package and would be an excellent option. Since you said you have a Lippert 1621HD...

  • If your 5th wheel trailer is 3-inches out of level when hitched to your Pullrite 4100 Superglide hitch there will be potential handling and wear issues. It is possible that you will feel a bit more jarring and chucking at starts/stops than if the trailer were properly leveled; this occurs because the angle of the king pin in the hitch's jaws will be a bit off the ideal alignment for full contact. Since the trailer will be tipped backwards slightly this will put more of its total weight...
