Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit - Custom - RP30852 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30852. This is the Reese under bed rails and installation kit for the Reese Elite Series Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck trailer hitches. This is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the 2010 to 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 series trucks. This installation kit is designed for use with the Reese Elite Series Fifth Wheel trailer hitches. The Elite Series will have the wide base; the tabs will attach into these four pucks in the truck bed.

This kit would be under the truck bed so all you would see is just the puck openings. This is designed to be used with the Elite Series under bed Gooseneck hitch, and that's part number RP30158. We do sell that separately. That part would include a plate that would bolt onto the holes here on the rails and give you an under bed Gooseneck hitch that you could use also. These under bed rails will provide complete access to your truck bed when you remove the hitch. There are no exposed rails in the bed, they're all underneath. When you do install this, it requires drilling four 3 1/4 " holes in the truck bed to access this inaudible 00:01:14 mounting system for the Fifth Wheel hitch.

If you do add that under bed Gooseneck hitch, the part number RP30158 I mentioned earlier, that will also require a 3 1/2" hole drilled to be able to access that opening for the under bed Gooseneck hitch. This is the power puck system, which will allow quick, simple mounting and removal of the Fifth Wheel hitch. These rails give you a wide platform, which will ensure absolute hitch stability. This is a vehicle-specific design, so this reduces the installation time and requires less drilling than universal systems. This is only steel product and it is finished in a black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. The rails are all included. The pucks and these clamping brackets I have out here, it'd be two on each side.

Basically what you do, using the included hardware, you would just run the bolts up through here and this would mount to the frame of your vehicle. There's two clamps for each side. The pucks themselves, they come with the plastic trim ring. This is the puck itself and it comes with a plug. Basically once these rails are installed, you would use the included bolts and bolt these pucks into the rails themselves and what you would do is put this on before you install it.

Once the rails are there, then you put the puck through the truck bed and just install it like that. When you're not using it, you can just use the plug to protect the hole from getting dirty of anything. Now the application. This has a weight capacity of 25,000 pounds, has a vertical load limit, or pin weight capacity of 6,250 pounds. That should do it for the review on part number RP30852, the Reese under bed rails and installation kit for the Reese Elite Series Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck trailer hitches. .

Went in easy and simple, make sure to look at the direction it goes I first as it is directional and you will only notice it when you go to put the bolts in on the bottom side, other than that it was a great easy to use set up 384619

Ask the Experts about this Reese Fifth Wheel Installation Kit

Do you have a question about this Fifth Wheel Installation Kit?


  • Where Does the Husky 5th Wheel Bracket Kit # HT31413 Install on a 2011 Dodge Ram
  • The Husky rails, # HT30686, do sit in the bed of the truck. They will be bolted through the bed to the under bed brackets which are bolted to the truck frame. The brackets will not interfere with the spare tire at all. The hitch pins in the same as it currently does. All installation kits that have above the bed rails or require them will also require below the bed brackets. These are not to be confused with systems that are nearly completely under the bed such as # RP30852 for the...

  • Under Bed Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Ram 2500 without Hitch Prep
  • If you have a 2016 Ram 2500 without the hitch prep package the B and W Turnover part # BWGNRK1384-5W will work as an underbed fifth wheel hitch as well as double as a gooseneck hitch. For a fifth wheel hitch to fit this rail kit you would need the Companion part # BWRVK3400-5W.

  • Compatibility of Air Lift Air Springs on 2012 Ram 3500 With a 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Air Lift Helper Springs, # AL57595, that you referenced will work well on your 2012 Ram 3500 and will not interfere with the 5th wheel hitch rail # RP30852. The Air Lift springs have a 7,500 lbs load leveling capacity which will help reduce the stress on your Ram's rear suspension when towing your trailer. I also recommend installing an air compressor system like the Air Lift Load Controller Compressor System, # AL25856, with the air helper springs. The compressor system will...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Trailer be Towed by a 2012 Ram 3500 with Ram Box
  • The problem that you are having is a common one that has frustrated Ram owner's since the Ram Box feature became available. For a very long time, no manufacturers even provided 5th wheel fit information for models that have the Ram Box feature (and still don't for the most part). But there is a solution. In order to be able to make tighter turns and not hit the Ram Boxes the trailer will have to be fitted with a Sidewinder pin box. The Sidewinder will move the pivot point of the trailer...

  • Reese Under-Bed Installation Kit and Fifth Wheel Recommendation for 2012 Dodge Ram Power Wagon
  • There are two under bed installation kits available for your 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Power Wagon. The choices are either the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Under Bed Kit # RP30852 or the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Under Bed Kit # RP30074. Both kits have a wide platform that ensures hitch stability, use the Power Puck system and are black powder coated steel that resists corrosion. Advantages to the Elite Series Gooseneck # RP30852 is that this gives you the option of adding...

  • Best Underbed Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500 without Rail Kit
  • For your 2016 RAM 3500 I would recommend a B and W Companion hitch with Turnover ball setup as that will give you a fifth wheel hitch setup that installs without rails being in the bed of your truck. Basically you would have a gooseneck hitch ball socket in the bed of your truck that the hitch would install into. For the hitch you would want the part # BWRVK3500-5W and then for the rail kit you would want part # BWGNRK1314-5W. What is nice about this is that if you ever needed to tow...

  • Comparing Reese Underbed 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kits for a 2010 Dodge Ram 3500
  • The difference between the 5th wheel installation kits # RP30852 and # RP30074 is what they fit. Kit # RP30852 is designed for 2010 to current Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 series. Kit # RP30074 was originally designed for the Signature Series hitches and it fits various Ram models going back to 2002. There is also a capacity difference. Kit # RP30852 is rated for 25,000 pounds while # RP30074 is rated for 18,000 pounds. However, you should always go by what the truck is rated for as stated...

  • Elite Rail Kit, Slider Hitch, Air Spring Kit and Fifth Wheel Wiring Recommend for 2011 Ram 2500
  • All of the parts you referenced would work well together. The Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs # F2299 that you referenced attaches the truck frame by the jounce bumper which wouldn't interfere with the rail kit part # RP30852 that you would need to install to use the Reese Elite Slider part # RP30144. The # 50-97-410 would be a great option for fifth wheel trailer wiring as well.

  • Is the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with a Revolution Pin Box and 2010 Ram 2500
  • Yes, the Reese Revolution pin box and the Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitches such as # RP30142 are compatible with each other. You will just need the appropriate custom wedge # SWW-01. Since you are using a Revolution pin box I recommend using the fixed version of the Elite hitch # RP30142 because the pin box is not meant to be used with a slider hitch. For an installation kit that will fit your 2010 Ram 2500 and the Elite hitch I recommend # RP30852 which is the custom fit below...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rail Kit And Hitch Compatible With 2011 Ram 3500 Flat Bed
  • If you want to keep your flat bed clean, I recommend the Underbed Rails and Installation Kit for Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Trailer Hitches # RP30852 with the Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Wiring Harness - Single Jaw - 18,000 lbs # RP30142. This system will give you 4 pucks similar to the factory style pucks now available in many trucks. This will leave your flat bed usable without raised rails. If you want traditional above bed rails,...

  • Will the Reese Elite Series Kit For a 2012 Ram 3500 Work With a 5th Wheel Hitch for Chevy Pucks
  • The Reese Elite Series Install Kit part # RP30852 which is a fit for your 2012 Ram 3500 is designed to use a 5th wheel hitch for Ford OEM Pucks such as the B&W Companion OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package part # BWRVK3300. There would be no way to use a 5th wheel hitch for Chevy OEM Pucks but you may be able to swap out the base. This would then allow you to use the head and center section, I would just need to know which exact 5th wheel hitch you have otherwise you would...

  • Will Reese Elite with Underbed Rails Fit in 2012 Ram 3500 with Air Bags
  • The Air Lift LoadLifter # AL57295 that's already installed into your 2012 Ram 3500 won't be an issue. The air springs install to the bottom of the frame. The Underbed Rails # RP30852 is normally easier to install, although not by much. The # RP30074 requires the bolts to go through the frame which is a little more challenging than the u-shaped brackets of # RP30852. However, in your case I think the # RP30074 is probably a little easier because the air bags may make it more difficult...

  • The # RP30074 and the # RP30852 have both been confirmed to fit your 2011 Ram 2500 and would work well with your Elite Hitch part # RP30144. Based on the price I would go with the # RP30074. Check out the install video I attached for more info.

This system installs using pre-drilled holes in your frame and will give you full bed access with the hitch removed. This is actually the same system installed from the factory on newer Ford, Ram, and Chevy trucks (Spacing Different for Ram/Chevy). Also, this option will allow for the greatest selection of 5th...
