Video Transcript for Reese Fifth Wheel - Fixed Fifth Wheel - RP30047 Review

Today we are going to review part number RP30047. This is the Reese Fifth Wheel Dual Jaw Trailer Hitch with a 16,000 pound weight capacity. This fifth wheel trailer hitch uses the two jaw locking system, which will provide more jaw to king pin contact than the economical slide bar models, it will give you less rattle and greater security. I am going to open up the jaws to show you the dual jaws. If you move the safety latch over, that will allow you to pull open the handle. When you pull open on the handle, there is a little notch that will latch onto the plate and it will hold the jaws open right here.

So you can see the dual jaws let me release it and you will see the dual jaw right here and they basically close and wrap completely around the king pin and give you less rattle and greater security. Now it does have the 4-way pivoting head, which will ease hook up on un-leveled ground. Basically you can see it move side-to-side and it also moves front-to-back. This one being brand new is pretty stiff, but it gives you 4-way movement. Now on the side, let me rotate this and I will show you on the side that, there is a height adjustment when you install the cross-member to the fixed legs, you will notice that there is four sets of holes that you can put the bolts through and basically you can get the correct height you need above your truck bed.

If you put the bolts or if you install the cross-member in the top bolts, that would be the lowest hitch height, which would be 14 1/2inches. If you put the bolts in the lower holes, that would raise it up to the maximum of 18 inches, so there is a 3 1/2 inch height adjustment that you can do above your truck bed. The installation on this hitch is very simple and the removal is also. The fixed legs as you can see right here flare out, so they do have a wide stance and they are a one piece leg, which will offer excellent stability. The finish on this is a black powder coat finish on both the legs and the hitch.

It will resist corrosion. This locking handle that I have demonstrated, does have a nice cushion grip on it and again just to show you how that opens, let me turn the handle push it down, so you will be able to see the dual jaws. You just pull open and it will latch into place and back your king pin in, fifth wheel king pin, release it and it will be around the king pin and just push down on your safety latch. You will notice that once you push the safety latch right here around the handle and push it down, it keeps the handle from being operated, which will keep the jaws around the king pin. There is a hole on the latch and a whole on the head and if you put a pin or clip through there or even a padlock, which is sold separately, for additional security that will keep it locked into place.

Now I am demonstrating this hitch on base rails, but they are not included with this part, they are sold separately. The rails and the mounting kit will be sold separately. We do recommend if possible using a custom install mounting bracket, because that will cut the time in half compared to a universal install kit. This hitch will fit the Curt, The Valley, The Draw-Tite, the Hidden Hitch and the Reese Space Rails. Again the gross towing weight capacity on this is 16,000 pounds. The vertical load limit on this is 4,000 pounds. The hitch height we mentioned is 14 1/2 to 18 inches and it comes with a five year limited warranty.The pin and clips that attach it to the rails will be included with the hitch. I just want to show you the rear of the hitch basically to show you the large pivot bolt. This head is installed on a pivot beam and its held in by this large pivot bolt with a pin and clip, so if you remove that pin and clip, you can pull that pivot bolt out and then the whole head and pivot beam would come out of the cross-member. Very simple installation. That should do it for review on part number RP30047.

The product its self is good but there were no installation instructions for it so I had to find them on the net. I was a bit disappointed about that. and it says a 4 hour job, well expect a bit more time. 305170

Got great advice about what Gooseneck hitch and wiring harness I would need for my 5 1/2' bed F-150. I got notice 2 hours after I ordered that it was shipped and it was delivered within 3 days. I just completed the install (took about 3 hours for everything). 200509

Received product by UPS. Two of the three packages were intact however the package that the fifth wheel top plate and frame came in were ripped open. Fortunately all contents were there. Suggest these pieces be shipped in a sturdier box, maybe double thick. Other than that, Reese hitch looks very strong. Will be installing it today. More to come. 435544

Overall good experience, except the shipping. Not etrailer's fault, UPS separated the packages and the second one to arrive looked like it was drop kicked. The ramp on the plate was bent, and the black coating is cracked but I guess it will still be serviceable. Fit right in place of my prior hitch and I look forward to trying it out soon. Went from a slide bar to the dual jaw hoping to be rid of the chucking during stop and start up. 112340

After getting the rear rail installed, I used the hitch to set the front rail. I worked perfectly. I can remove the hitch without any binding. This was a problem with my old hitch on my old truck that was installed by the service department where I bought my original 5th wheel trailer. This is basically the same hitch as I had before on my old truck and I had no problems with it after towing approximately 37,000 miles over 15 years so I expect that this hitch will give me the same service. 239363

- RP30047
by:

Is this a good hitch. It is great. Such an improvement over my old one. The design makes it much easier to pull the head. The swivel head makes it much easier to back under when the ground isn't level. It seems to perform smoother when pulling also. I had the old slider fixed head. While I purchased a complete set I just used the head and put it on my slider. I then put my old head on the new tower and sold it. It was a win win for me. I just leave it in my truck year round with a tri-fold tonneau cover over it and all I need to do is fold it back, hook up and go. Also what was the best part was how helpful the folks at etrailer are to work with. They will bend over backwards to help. They researched this unit to be sure it would fit the slider towers. 696104

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommend for 2016 Ford F-150 5.5 ft Bed Towing Trailer w Reese Revolution Box
    The Reese Revolution is exactly what you need with a fixed hitch to be towed by a truck with a 5-1/2 foot bed like your 2016 Ford F-150. A slider hitch wouldn't give you the needed clearance and a slider hitch can't be used with a Reese Revolution so that's just bad advice all around. So what you'll want is fixed hitch like the # RP30047 and a custom rail kit for your truck like the Reese part # RP50087-58 and you'll be in very good shape with the Reese Revolution.

If this is the case then you can simply replace the fixed legs with the Reese Square Tube Slider # RP30048 in order to convert it to a sliding model. Please keep in mind though that while a sliding hitch will certainly provide you with more cab clearance compared to a fixed unit, typically with a 5-1/2 foot bed a pivoting pin box on the trailer is needed to allow for 90 degree turns.

    In order to determine if a Sidewinder such as # RP61420 will allow you to perform a 90 degree turn with your 2016 Ram 1500, you first need to measure the distance from the center of your fifth wheel hitch jaw to your truck's Rambox.You will also need to know the width of the trailer you will be pulling. You can then use this formula to find out if you can do a 90 degree turn: (A + B) - C = Clearance A = Distance from center of 5th-wheel hitch jaw to Rambox in inches B = Length of Sidewinder...

With fifth wheel hitch you actually don't really need them to sit higher than the bed rails of the truck.

    The Max Turn Technology feature of your Keystone Cougar basically is a narrower nose that allows better clearance with short bed trucks.

  • How to Reduce Chucking and Jarring While Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
    Chucking and jarring while towing a 5th wheel trailer (or any trailer for that matter) is unavoidable because the trailer itself is not one piece with your vehicle. When your truck starts to move forward from a stop your trailer is still sitting static and so there will be a slight jolt; the same thing happens when you slow down. Since the front end of your trailer is connected to your truck, when your truck starts to slow down your trailer is still moving forward so it will give you a...

  • Will Reese 16K 5th Wheel Hitch Fit Reese Adapter for a 2018 Ram 2500 with Factory Prep Package
    Yes, Reese 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30047 is indeed a fit for adapter # RP30154 for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory puck system. Since your truck is a short bed though I do recommend using the slider version, # RP30051, unless your trailer was designed with a tapered front cap specifically for short bed trucks. As you know the slider travels back 10 inches for more clearance between the truck cab and trailer when making tight turns. I have linked some videos for you to check out.

Since your truck bed is 5-1/2 feet in length the best way to get the needed turning clearance is one of the pivoting pin boxes I mentioned.

    Yes, everything you ordered is correct for replacing the handle and actuating rod of your Reese hitch part # RP30047. The part # 58055 is the handle. Part # 30579 is the actuating rod. Part # 58054 is the klip rings. There are no written instructions for replacing the rod. But you will have to remove the head of the hitch and turn it over to get more access to the internal parts. I have included an exploded diagram of a Reese 16K hitch, # RP30047, that might help. It's not an overly...

  • Jaw Rebuild Kit Recommendation for Reese 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch
    Really depends on where the play is and what hitch you have. If the play has developed over time though most likely it's a sign of wear and would either be time for a rebuild kit (if available) or a new hitch.

  • Comparing the Jaw Designs on the Dual-Jaw # RP30047 and the Single-Jaw # RP30081 5th Wheel Hitches
    Although the dual-jaw design system on the Reese 16K # RP30047 and the single-jaw design on the Reese Select Plus 20K # RP30081 are both safe, I prefer the single-jaw design. With the single-jaw there are less moving parts and the jaw essentially "hugs" the king pin inside the hitch as opposed to the dual-jaws which grip around the king pin themselves. Again, both designs are great and perfectly safe, but the Select Plus is definitely the way to go when it comes to ride comfort when...

  • Can Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Adapter be Used with Truck that has 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    For a truck with a 5-1/2 foot bed you would not get the clearance needed with the Andersen Ultimate # AM3200. Only lighter weight option will be for you to install a Sidewinder on your trailer in place of it's pin box and then go with a stationary hitch. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have now in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the trailer that will list the pin box number...

  • Will the Reese Head Part # 30118 Fit the Reese 5th Wheel Slider Part # RP30051
    The Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # RP30047 that you referenced is a fixed 5th wheel hitch. The sliding version of this hitch is the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Square Tube Slider part # RP30051. The Replacement Double Pivot 20K Head and Head Support part # 30118 will fit both of these bases. Unfortunately, we do not carry the Blue Ox Bed Saver at this time.

    We have exactly what you are needing to give you additional clearance for your short bed truck!
