Parallel Linkage System Reduces Chucking

Glide Ride Diagram

Chucking is the rough jarring motion that is common when towing a fifth-wheel trailer. This harsh back-and-forth movement is caused by the king pin slamming against the jaws of your hitch. The resulting jerking can create an uncomfortable ride while towing, and it can put stress on various components of your towing setup. Chucking can lead to increased wear and tear on the tires, frame, body, and suspension of either the truck or the trailer. In addition, the internal components of your fifth-wheel camper - the cabinets and appliances, for example - can get damaged from the often rough movement.


To help limit chucking, the parallel linkage system on the Glide Ride connects the king pin plate and the pin box with 2 specially designed links on each side. These links allow the king pin to move along with your truck without disrupting the motion of your trailer, thus avoiding the push-pull action that results in chucking. The plate will move in a controlled, fluid, arcing motion that will ensure that the king pin smoothly returns to center without any of the jarring or recoil that you might feel with other pin boxes. By using this system, you will get a smoother, more comfortable ride when towing your fifth-wheel trailer.

Review from a similar Demco Glide Ride in Fifth Wheel King Pin


Well when I got it it was smashed. The box was almost destroyed and the packing material (spray foam in a bag was crushed). The lower plate was bent on both corners. I didn't even bother to report it as then I would have to wait another 2 weeks or more to do a exchange. etrailer needs to do a better job of packing. Luckily the bent plate does not affect how it works. It really reduced my chucking! 636947

Review from a similar Demco Glide Ride in Fifth Wheel King Pin


I was not sure it was going to fit, but using the measuring guide I found for Demco and looking at the etrailer site, it fit perfect. Only issue was it was packaged from the manufacture poorly and was somewhat loos in the box. This allowed it to slide some in the box and produce some light Box Scratches in the metal. It was superficial and I was able to wax it away. 480018

Reduced chucking significantly. Easy in stallation. 447166


Comments
Another solid product from Demco. WOrks well with my Anderson hitch providing significantly reduced chucking without an airbag and the need to adjust airbag pressure. Easy installation using pickup gate and trailer leveler to position.

Ask the Experts about this Demco Fifth Wheel King Pin

  • Cushioned Pin Box Recommendation for 2019 Keystone Fusion Impact 359
    The mounting bolt dimensions are the same between a Lippert 1116 and a 1716 pin box so the # DM8250018 will bolt up either way. The difference is the length of the pin box. The 1116 is considered a medium length pin box and is about 7 inches shorter in length horizontally. The 1716 Demco Glide Ride will bolt up and could work well but it's going to be a bit longer. Some pin box manufacturers list 1116 and 1716 box replacements as the same part number but Demco does not. Added length could...

  • Best Cost Effective Pin Box to Reduce Chucking for Lippert 1621 Replacement
    The Trailair pin boxes can be used with the Andersen Ultimate like what you have and they provide the best bang for the buck as a cushioned pin box so you'd want the part # LC158778 which is designed for replacing the Lippert 1621. Air bags will stiffen up your suspension, but they really won't make it smoother as they don't provide a smoother ride quality like the name would imply.

  • Replacement Lippert 1716 Pin Box That is Shorter than the OEM Pin Box
    Of the pin boxes that we carry that are the replacement for the Lippert 1716, we have one that might work well for you. The Demco Glide Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box, # DM8250018, is the shortest pin box that we carry. The Demco measures 28-3/4 inches from the center of the king pin to the last bolt holt on the bottom row of mounting bolts. The Demco Glide Ride has a 19,000 lbs capacity and uses a parallel linkage system in the king pin head to help reduce chucking.

  • Idea to Help Lower Nose of Fifth Wheel Trailer to Level it Out
    Easiest solution you may have would be to lower the head of your fifth wheel hitch. Without knowing what hitch you have now though and what height setting you may be using it's hard to say if that would solve your problem but you should hopefully be able to adjust the height of the hitch to level the trailer. If that's not a solution you could look into a lower hitch or possibly taller wheels and tires. Let me know what hitch you have currently and what height setting you are using...

  • Height Dimensions of the Demco Glide Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box Part # DM8250018
    The Demco Glide Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box part # DM8250018 will have very similar, if not the same dimensions as the Lippert 1716 that it will be replacing so you should not have to worry about losing any clearance. With that being said I went out to our warehouse and measured the above for you. The distance from the center of lowermost set of bolt holes to the skid plate is around 6-1/2" and 9" from the uppermost set of bolt holes. I am not entirely sure I understand where you are measuring...
