Video Transcript for Pro Series Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - PS30128 Review

Today we're going to review part number PS30128. This is the Pro Series fifth wheel trailer hitch with the rails and the installation kit all included. Has a 15,000 pound weigh capacity. Now this is a sturdy and reliable fifth wheel hitch at a very affordable cost. Has the rounded slide bar single jaw system which will automatically latch around your trailer king pin. This will offer improved load management of ride when compared to similar models. The head, you can see, is a 4 way pivoting head, helps with trailer hookup, moves front to back and the the skid plate goes side to side to ensure easy trailer hookup even on uneven ground.

When you go to mount the cross member to the legs, there's 4 rows of holes on each side, so you want to make sure you position it correctly to match your specific trailer's height. The hitch height will be measured from the top of your truck bed to the top of the skid plate so you want it to be exactly for your application. Now the legs you can see are a 1 piece formed leg which will create a wide footprint for superior stability. Now the other nice thing, the design of this hitch makes the fifth wheel hitch very easy to install and remove for one person. Basically you can lift off this head unit just by removing the 2 pins and clips right here. Take down the side of the side and then the cross-members attach to the legs, if you remove the pins where the legs are, you can actually lift the legs and the cross-member out.

It's pretty light so you can actually, one person could lift this all out of the truck bed and have it out of there, makes it very easy. Now on the handle itself, you can see, has a nice cushion grip on the handle. Provides comfortable jaw operation. There's a tab right here on the handle which is lockable. They do include a padlock and 2 keys so once your kingpin is in your hitch, and this slides and locks into place, you can put the padlock in. I'm going to show you how to do that in a minute.

This will lock your fifth wheel trailer to the hitch. Now again, I mention it does come with the 10 bolt rails. Come with the universal installation kit, you can see right up here in front. Now what we do like to recommend is, we would recommend go to our fit guide . go to our website and use our fit guide. Put in your year and model vehicle and if they do offer a custom fit fifth wheel brackets or vehicle specific fifth wheel brackets, we sell those separately.

We do recommend to use those because it'll make installation if the rails a lot easier than using the universal kit. The universal takes a little bit longer. A custom fit kit would probably cut the time in half to install it because it uses existing holes on your frame rails. Now the specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity, again is 15,000 pounds. Vertical load limit or pin-weight capacity is 3,750 pounds. The hitch height, when you talk about you have 4 different rows of holes that you can set it at will range anywhere from, if you put it on the top holes it be 13 inches from the truck bed to the skid plate. If you put it on the bottom holes, it'll be 17 inches. The skid plate thickness itself is a half an inch. Just to show you how this would operate, what you would do is first, when you're preparing to hook up to your fifth wheel, just first open up your jaw, this single jaw here. Pull it all the way out and pull it back towards the tow vehicle and there's a little notch there that will hold it open. Then what will happen, as you're backing up to your fifth wheel, this is your king pin, this is what would be on your pin box on your fifth wheel. As your sliding into that to hook up, you can see as it slides into the head, it will automatically release that single slide bar there and that'll lock it into place. Then to finally secure it, those holes on the tabs line up. Just take your padlock, open it up, slide it through the hole, lock it. Then you're all ready to go. Nobody will be able to take your fifth wheel away from the hitch. That should do it for the review on part number PS30128. This is the Pro Series fifth wheel trailer hitch with the rails and the installation kit and a 15,000 pound weight capacity.

I dont like bashing another company but after contacting the other major RV dealer and parts supplier who happened to have 2 stores within a driving distance I was told if I was to pick up the hitch it would be not on sale and some $200 more. They didn't have it in stock at either store anyhow. I was then told if I ordered on line it would be about $100 for delivery, wow, no thanks. Over to etrailer's website,same hitch, in stock, and my order was placed. The hitch was delivered the day they said it would be with FREE shipping. Free, all 160 lbs of it. I am thrilled with the 5th wheel hitch, shipping and service. You just cant beat etrailer. 566934

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation Kit for a 2016 Ram 3500 Tradesman
  • For your 2016 Ram 3500 I recommend a custom installation kit, # C16426-204, because there is no frame drilling required to install the frame brackets and it will install in less time compared to universal or semi-custom kits. The rails in this kit will accept your Reese 15K hitch. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation. For the install kit listed above you will measure from the rear edge of the bed, not the tailgate, forward 26-1/2 inches for a short bed or...

  • For your 2016 Ford F-150 the Pro Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Rails and Installation Kit - Slide Bar Jaw - 15,000 lbs # PS30128 is a fit. I recommend using the Reese Quick-Install Custom Bracket Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50087 with these base rails to give you the installation without drilling into the trailer frame. I've attached videos to assist. I also recommend the Hopkins Endurance 5th Wheel/Gooseneck 90-Degree Wiring Harness with 7-Pole Plug # 41157 to give you...

  • The dimensions for installing the Universal Installation Kit, # RP30035 provided with the Pro Series 15K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Universal Installation Kit, item # PS30128, are as follows. The rear edge of the rear base rail is located 30 inches from the rear lip of the truck bed for an 8 foot bed and 25-1/8 inches for the 6 foot bed. This will place the center line of the hitch 1-1/2 inches in front of the center of the rear axle. It is much easier to install the custom installation...

If your rails look like # RP58058 which mounting holds on the side flanges at the end then they are 10-bolt rails. if the look like 30124 with no holes in the side flanges then they are 4-bolt rails. Custom brackets, # RP50142, fit the 10-bolt rails and your truck but not the 4-bolt rails. If you have the 4-bolt rails there is no easy way to get...

  • Causes for Excess Play in 5th Wheel Hitch Jaws
  • The reasons the jaw mechanism in a 5th wheel hitch might fail to completely close around the king pin could include a need for normal periodic lubrication, excessive wear in the jaws themselves or on the king pin, or that the jaw locking mechanism was not fully locked. 5th wheel hitches come with several types of jaw mechanisms and some simply do a better job than others when it comes to completely surrounding and gripping the notch on the king pin.

  • Base Rails and Installation Kit Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • You can easily mount a fifth wheel hitch in your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty and to do that I strongly recommend the Curt Custom 5th Wheel Installation Kit for Ford # C16428-204 because they do not require any drilling into your truck's frame to install and include galvanic isolators that are going to prevent corrosion in your Ford's aluminum bed. Not having to drill into your truck's frame is not only good for your truck but also reduces the amount of time it takes to install the rails....

  • Will Pro Series 5th Wheel Hitch Fit in 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
  • The Pro Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch # PS30128 is a universal installation and can be installed in your 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. However, since you have the 6-1/2 foot bed we recommend using a sliding hitch for additional turning clearance. For the slider use # PS30129. If your trailer is equipped with a Reese Sidewinder or Revolution pin box then you'll want to stick with the fixed hitch instead of the sliding hitch.

  • The Pro Series Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit, # PS30128, will fit on your 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab. The actual hitches themselves are pretty universal, so the only part you want to verify the fit for is the installation kit. This hitch comes with the Reese Universal Installation Kit, # RP30035, which is compatible with your truck. I would like to point out that this is a fixed fifth wheel hitch. On short bed trucks, we strongly recommend either using...

  • Where Will a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Centered on a 1982 Chevy C/K Series Pickup Truck
  • Most 5th wheel hitches will be mounted so that the trailer king pin is either centered over the rear truck axle or slightly in front if the axle center line. It really depends on the installation kit used. On a 1982 Chevy C10 I recommend Reese universal installation kit # RP30035. With this kit installed the center of the king pin will be approximately 3-1/2 inches forward of the center of the rear axle. I have linked the installation instructions for you.

  • Recommended Suspension Enhancement For 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Towing A Fifth Wheel
  • The tongue weight of a trailer can cause the ride to be uncomfortable at times. If everything is adjusted properly on the fifth wheel hitch and trailer you can help reduce the road shock and loping as you called it by using suspension enhancement. If your fifth wheel is installed correctly you should not need to move it forward as you mentioned. I recommend installing a Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System like part # TGMRCK25D on your Silverado 3500. This system will not effect...

I have linked a video and written instructions for this item. You will also need a hardware kit to install your base rails to the brackets.

  • Installing Fifth Wheel Hardware Over Existing Gooseneck Plate on a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 8 foot bed
  • According to my technical contact at Reese it is not recommended to have both a gooseneck and fifth wheel hitch installed at the same time and to have both useable. The reason for this is exactly as you have indicated that the mounting hardware that secures both of the hitches to the truck uses the exact location on the truck frame. If you were to drill through the existing hardware in order to mount the fifth wheel hitch it could compromise the integrity of the gooseneck hitch. These hitches...

  • Fifth Wheel Installation Rails for 15K Reese Hitch
  • We certainly have the rails you are needing. If you need the entire Universal Install Kit with the rails that mount in the bed along with the brackets and hardware to attach the rails to the truck frame, you will need part # RP30035. If you are needing just the rails themselves, use part # RP58058. The rails do not come with hardware to bolt to the brackets, so if you need the hardware you should also order part # RP58430.
