Video Transcript for Trimming a Truck Bed Liner for Fifth Wheel Rails

Today we're going to cover a frequently asked question on how to cut out a bed liner for a fifth wheel installation. It's pretty easy, we'll measure for our crossrails just like normal and then we'll go ahead and mark out our bed liner. Measuring from the edge of the bed of the truck, not the bed liner, but the edge of the bed and measure out. We'll go do one side, we'll go to the other side and make a mark as well. Now those will be the marks that'll align our first rail way. We'll make sure that our rail is even from left to right.

We'll just use the ribs in the bed liner to align it with and then we'll just draw a circle all the way around the rails. Then next we'll go ahead and use the legs of the fifth wheel hitch to place our second rail and now this will put our rail basically in the right stop and we'll just draw an outline around it as well and then the next step is go ahead and remove the parts for the fifth wheel and remove the bed liner and we can go ahead and cut out what we need. Before we make our cut outs we'll go ahead and support the bed liner up in the air a little bit with a couple pieces of timber. We'll go ahead and drill some pilot holes for a saw we're going to use to make the final cut out. So lets take our saw and we'll trace on the outside of our line and just cut it out.

Alright, and from this point we can go ahead with the fifth wheel install as normal.

This was a nice product easy to install. The hitch works good the only thing is it is hard to unlock because the jaws are tight. Other than that had no problems. 593512


Comments

If the jaws are difficult to unlock, youll want to make sure the hitch has been lubricated according to the operating instructions. Also, if the fifth wheel and the hitch arent both level, the pin box may be applying some force to the jaws, causing them to bind. Moving the vehicle a bit will usually allow the hitch to unbind.

Installed a Reese custom rail kit (RP50066-58) on my 2016 GMC Denali 4WD DRW. It took approximately 3 1/2 hours to get it completely installed. I had to remove the exhaust heat shield and drop the spare tire but once I did it gave me easy access to the hitch frame brackets. I found it very informative to watch the online video first and took the advise of another persons suggestion to tape over the holes in the top of the frame (it kept me from losing the nuts & washers down into the frame). I simply followed the written instructions that came with the kit and the hitch was installed with out any real issues. I will say it did come in handy to have someone to assist me with some parts of the installation (just to keep me from having to crawl in/out from under the truck to get tools etc). As a side note, if you had access to car lift it would make the installation much faster and easier. I didn't have access to one and it was a little tight but as I said it wasn't all that bad. I would definitely recommend this product. 277454

Received the product the very next day shipping was excellent. Boxes were well taped and secured and complete. This was installed on a 2011 Silverado 2500 HD with a 8 foot bed . My installation was straightforward ,followed the included directions , and it installed very easy. I only have two suggestions , Get the spare tire down and out-of-the-way and do whatever is necessary to get around the heat shield. I just cut a small section of mine away . I have done business with etrailer for about five years now. I use to price check and order everywhere off the Internet. I don't do that anymore because I always ended up back doing business with etrailer.com. For four reasons ... Best price around, quality products, great customer service from a live person, well packaged products with the fast shipping 347000

Fast shipping!! Installed on a new 2016 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali. Only issue was the exhaust heat shield.. It must be removed for easier access to install hardware. It takes about 3 hours to install with one person. Otherwise no issues. E Trailer is great to do business with!! Thank you 348865

I purchased the Reese dual jaw slider and install bracket kit. Everything arrived in three days in perfect condition. After watching the install video and reviewing the enclosed instructions I installed the assembly myself. It took approximately 4 hours . As you can see I also did additional steps, cutting the rubber bed mat to fit around the rails. Also undercoating the brackets to blend in the wheel wells. Etrailer is definitely the place to go for all your RV needs. 337604

Hi Carol. I got the package. I hope to install next week. I’m also looking to put a 5th wheel electrical plug in the bed. 2019 Chevy 3500 with the factory prep for the wiring harness. Do you have a correct fit kit to do this? 577346


Comments

We do offer a 5th wheel wiring harness for your 2019 Silverado 3500. Id recommend the Hopkins # 41157
Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Plug
$92.00
, which you can see by using the link provided below. The harness plugs inline right behind the 7-way installed on your trucks rear bumper, between the trucks factory harness and the existing 7-way.

There were two areas on my 2018 Chevy 2500HD with the 6’-6” bed that are tough too get to(that’s when the extra hands come in great). I’m very please the product as well as the support from George J.

The included instructions are good, however there is a YouTube video that is super easy to follow. Also the torque recommendations are impossible to achieve unless you have a flat (non socket) torque wrench. Most home torque wrenches only go to 150lbs and the settings for the frame is 210lbs. The bolts on the rear drivers side rail were located behind the gas tank. You have to achieve a form of contortion that would impress any circus performer. Overall great product well laid out instructions and installable by the average guy. 512601

Rail kit was great and etrailer was great with fast and free shipping. Only advice: I installed this kit on my 2014 Chevrolet 3500 and I would not do it again. I'd spend the extra money and get the RP56001-53 kit...much much easier to install If you have time and patience, it's worth the savings. Otherwise save yourself the tight quarters of trying to get to those bolts above the frame rails. I suspect this kit was an earlier design that was or should have been superseded by the later one. 485336



- RP50066-58

It's great! Only one suggestion....if you could upgrade the mounting brackets to bolt into the same holes as the factory hitch, installation would be so much easier. 484876

Installed on 2017 chevy 2500. Square washers for the 5/8 bolts were to big to fit through the acess holes in pickup frame. I had to fish them through a bigger hole further up the frame rail.

This was a great fit for my truck and me. I didn't want to have to drill through the frame. Everything lined up and the installation video was a great help.

Shipping was fast and parts were well padded and all there! 353905

Wow, I received the order in 2 days. The previous owner of my truck had a "universal kit " installed. Single bolts on the ends of the rails bolted into angle irons. I removed all the "old brackets" and installed the custom brackets. Fits perfectly. the nuts on the front rail are a little difficult to put on, but not impossible. Looks great.. 352502

If you have a set of Reese fifth wheel rails currently all you'd need is the bracket kit part # RP50066 for that. You'll need new hardware for attaching the rails to the brackets.

The only difference is that the # RP56001-53 kit does have the slightly bigger base rails which will move the mounting points to outside part of the frame for easier installation.

  • The base rails and installation kit I highly recommend for your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD is the Reese Quick-Install Custom Installation Kit w/ Base Rails # RP50066-58 because this kit will not require any type of drilling in your Silverado's frame to install. Not only is that a great thing for your truck, but it cuts the installation time down significantly. I do want to note that these base rails will give your Silverado industry-standard base rails and will only work if your Mor/Ryde...

  • Which is Better the Reese # RP30081 20K 5th Wheel Hitch or the Pro Series # PS30119 Hitch
  • The Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, item # RP30081, has a longer warranty and added features like a larger 9 inch wide funnel and and higher height adjustment for faster, easier hookup, and a single piece self latching jaw to ensure proper connection to the trailers king pin. Other than that, the hitches are very similar, and they are both capable of towing up to 20,000 pounds if your Silverado is rated for a trailer that large. I would go with the Reese, # RP30081, hitch for the added...

  • Recommended No-Drill Fifth Wheel Frame Bracket/Bed Rail Install Kit for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • Reese offers two different no-drill frame bracket/bed rail options for your 2015 Silverado 2500, neither of which would require drilling into the truck frame. The inboard bracket kit, part # RP50066-58 is a bit less expensive, but is a bit more difficult to use, as the attachments between the bracket and the bed rail are made on top of the frame members, making them a bit more difficult to get to. Another option would be the Reese outboard rail kit, part # RP56001-53 that used bed rails...

  • The Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP50066-58 are designed for GM vehicle and will not fit your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty.

  • Can a Slider Hitch be Used with a Reese Revolution Sidewinder Pin Box
  • When you tow a trailer with a Reese Revolution or Sidewinder you would not need to use a slider hitch since the pin box would allow for the tight turns without interference. Ideally you use a stationary hitch, but you CAN use a slider hitch with a RR or Sidewinder. You just would have to leave it in in the slid forward position at all times. Since most likely you have a Husky 16 hitch (Husky bought Valley), you could upgrade the legs to # HT31314 as long as it is the Silver Series hitch....

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitches for 2011 GMC Sierra 2500HD with Short Bed
  • As long as you stay with a name-brand product like Reese, Husky or Curt, you should have no problems. You will want to choose a hitch whose weight capacity exceeds the fully loaded ready-to-tow weight of your fifth wheel. Because your truck has the 6-1/2 foot bed, you will want to choose a sliding hitch. A slider provides additional clearance between the front of the trailer loft and the rear of the truck cab, to prevent the trailer from striking and damaging the truck during turns....
