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.

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

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

Thank you for asking. The products I purchased have worked great. No problems or complaints

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

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

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

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

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...

  • I attached a link to the right that shows all of the confirmed 5th wheel hitch fits for your 2015 Ram 2500 short bed with a hitch prep package. Since you have a short bed you will need a slider hitch to let you make tight turns. For that I would recommend the # RP30075. For a rail kit to fit your underbed rail kit you will need the # RP30154.

They told me there is no adapter available that would eliminate the need for above bed rails when the towing package is installed. This...

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Using Underbed Mounting Rails for 2014 Ram 2500
  • B and W has a solution that would allow you to install a fifth wheel hitch with an underbed mounting system. Their Companion # BWRVK3500-5W fifth wheel hitch would install into their Turnover Ball Gooseneck, part # BWGNRK1384-5W. 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. This will only be a solution if your truck has coil springs in...

If you click the provided link, you can see an installation video showing how the # RP30154 adapter works.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for 2014 Ram 3500 with OEM Factory Prep Package
  • There is currently one option for a 5th wheel trailer hitch that will fit directly into the factory prep package on the 2014 Rams. It is B and W hitch # BWRVK3600. However, it is not a slider hitch. But if you need additional cab clearance you can use a Sidewinder with this hitch. Sidwinders move the pivot point of the trailer 22 inches from the king pin hitch location. I have included a helpful article that explains Sidewinders in further detail for you. There is another option....

  • Does the Reese Ram OEM 5th Wheel Adapter # RP30154 Include the Feet
  • The Reese Ram OEM Fifth Wheel Adapter, # RP30154, includes the feet that insert into the pucks (factory slots) in the bed of your 2013 Ram 3500. 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.

  • High Capacity 5th Wheel Hitch Options for 2014 Ram 3500 With OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Hitch you referenced, part # RP30054 is meant for flat bed or cab and chassis trucks only, and would not be a good choice for your 2014 Ram with the OE prep package. I suppose if you were willing to go through enough modification and fabrication work, the hitch could work, but you would be on your own to do the engineering and fab work, I would have no specific advice on that. At this time, there is not a fifth wheel hitch available that will drop directly...

  • Fifth Wheel Recommendation For 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 With Factory Prep Package
  • For your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 6 ft bed, we offer several sliding hitches that will work well for you. These hitches range in price due to the features they have. You said you have the factory prep package. Since prep packages vary for different manufacturers, there are a couple of ways we can address this. First, I will give you options for a system with the in-bed puck system. If your Ram has the factory puck system installed, you have a couple of options. You can install a stationary...

  • 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...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for 2015 Ram 3500 Dually and Reese Hitch
  • As far as fits go the situation was that on Curt kit # C16426-204 they had excluded dually models. But we have installed this kit on a dually model and have been told by Curt recently that it will fit. So if your 2015 Ram 3500 does not have the factory prep package for a 5th wheel hitch, you should be able to use this Curt kit. And your Reese hitch will fit it. But I can tell you that Reese installation kit, # RP50085-58, will fit dually models for sure and your hitch will fit this installation...

  • Will Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit # C16427-104 Fit 2014 Ram 2500 Diesel/Reese R16 Slider
  • 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...

  • Will the Husky 5th Wheel and Slider part # HT31318-32042 fit a Mopar Underbed Bracket Part 82213667
  • Yes, the Mopar bracket you installed (similar to the Reese Mopar Adapter part # RP30154) in the bed of your 2014 Ram 3500 with the underbed rail kit enables your truck to be compatible with fifth wheel hitches that fit industry standard rails. 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 Towing with 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 HD 8-ft Bed That Has 20-Inch Wheels
  • A truck that is lifted above standard height - either by a suspension lift kit or by use of larger diameter wheels - will make 5th wheel towing more difficult. This height increase reduces clearance between the 5th wheel overhang and the truck's bed rails and/or tailgate. The linked diagram shows you the recommended minimum clearances between a truck and trailer. I checked the Grand Design website's specs for the pin height of the 320X but this information is not provided. You will want...

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Plate that Fits Reese Adapter for 2014 Ram Factory Prep Package
  • The Reese adapter # RP30154 for the 2014 Rams with the prep package has the 2 wider sets of mounting slots at 20-1/2 and 29 inches on center side to side but not the inner set at 10 inches apart. The Curt Spyder gooseneck plate # 16085 will fit in the 20-1/2 inch slots on the adapter. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. The factory prep package on your 2014 Ram should have come with the hole for a gooseneck ball. If yours does have this, we have found that you can...

  • Will Curt Slider Fifth Wheel Hitch Work On 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 Crew Cab With 6 Ft Bed
  • The first thing you will want to do is measure to make sure you have the cab clearance for a fifth-wheel hitch in your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 Crew Cab. I have attached a helpful article that shows how you can take the measurements. We do not have a fifth-wheel hitch that will work with a Ram that has a Ram Box. If you find you need a Sidewinder for your new setup, you can let me know what the pin box on your trailer make and model is and I will be happy to make a recommendation that will...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory Prep Package
  • You can use Reese 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30081 with the adapter for the Ram OEM prep package, # RP30154. The adapter will except 5th wheel trailer hitches that fit in industry standard above the bed rails. It is possible that if the truck is raised beyond stock there could be issues with being able to tow the trailer level. Both the hitch head and the trailer pin box can be adjusted up and down though and in most cases that is enough adjustability to tow the trailer level. In...

  • Will Reese Ram OEM 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154 Work with Husky 24K Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for the Ram OEM Prep Package, # RP30154, was designed to work with fifth wheel hitches that use the standard above-bed base rails like your Husky 24K fifth wheel hitch, so it should work just fine. I spoke with my contact at Husky and he said they have not specifically tested the Reese adapter with any of their hitches, so it is likely that the warranty could be voided if damage were to occur, but they have not had any reported issues. I also spoke with...

  • Will RBW Lil Rocker 15K Hitch Fit in 2014 Ram 2500 4WD Crew cab
  • As long as your 2014 Ram 2500 4WD Crew Cab has the factory-installed rail kit (with a 4-puck system in the bed) you do have an option for your RBW Lil Rocker hitch. This option is to use an adapter, part # RP30154 from Reese. I confirmed with my contact at Reese the fit of your hitch with this adapter. This adapter fits into the OEM pucks to provide a mounting location for the hitch legs. Base rails are not needed in this case. Please take a look at the included image showing this Reese...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Ram 3500 with OEM Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The first thing to consider is whether or not an aftermarket gooseneck trailer hitch is compatible with the OEM underbed 5th wheel package on your 2013 Ram 3500. I know that there are currently no 5th wheel hitches that fit directly into the Dodge OEM prep package and to install an aftermarket gooseneck you will most likely have to remove the underbed brackets for the 5th wheel prep package so they will not interfere with the gooseneck brackets. There is more than one B and W companion...

  • Will Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Adapter for 2014 Ram 2500 Factory Prep Package
  • The Reese Elite series 5th wheel trailer hitches that use the under bed puck system to mount to the truck will not fit the Reese adapter # RP30154 for the 2014 Rams with the factory prep package. The adapter will fit the OEM prep package but the only hitches that fit are the ones that fit in industry standard above the bed rails, like # PS30121, # RP30870 or # RP30083 if you wanted to stay in the same weight capacity range. These are all 20K hitches. For 18k the only option is the Elite...
