The order of 2 heavy items arrived on time as expected and apparently undamaged. Upon my request, etrailer packed and wrapped my heavy items together in a very sturdy box, stapled shut, in addition to the manufacturer packaging. This outer box was undamaged and the contents appear undamaged, though I have yet to open the items. 690617

Product arrived on time - thanks eTrailer! Case is very nice for storage, as all parts will need to be regularly lubricated. The safety chain attachments will need clevis to hook the chains, to keep the hooks from dislodging. The ball is well made, robust. My only small concern is the significant movement/looseness of the ball shank once the ball is into the receiving hole in the hitch (below the bed). It concerns the ability for vertical lift of the trailer with just 2 small ball locks holding the ball hitch in place, with some noticeable looseness in the socket. 284711

This is one heavy duty towing set up! The spring loaded retaining clips are a bit of overkill...emphasis "kill". I have had the clips snap shut on my nail beds more than once and the pain was off the charts. I literally was cussing in tongues! There is no way that the chain loops could ever come out of the slots. I needed sturdy hardware and got just that. 691902

I am a very satisfied user. The 5th wheel we pull is 10.5Tons and I see no strain or wear marks after a year of occasional, mostly highway travels. The small amount of bed space taken up by the goose neck ball and hitches compared to a large, good quality plate hitch is remarkable. And of course when not being used, the ball and chain parts stay in the carry case. I only wish the parts were all stainless steel and rust proof. Still, not a problem as I keep the corrosion prone parts coated with wheel bearing grease. 359706


Comments
Works as advertised. There is some additional corrosion on all the ferrous metal piece. No surprise considering the weather exposure which is normal usage conditions.

Ask the Experts about this Curt Gooseneck Hitch

  • Tallest Gooseneck Hitch Ball for 2018 Ram 2500 With Factory Prep Package
    The tallest gooseneck ball for your 2018 Ram 2500 with the factory prep package is the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNXA2062; you can see the difference in height between this and the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # C60618. You will need more than 5 inches and if the height of the B&W does not allow you to tow with the proper clearance, or tow level, I strongly recommend switching to a 5th wheel hitch,...

  • Comparison of Gooseneck Hitch Balls to Fit Ram Truck with Factory Goosneck Package
    The Curt # C60618, Reese # RP30140, and B&W # BWGNXA2062 hitch balls that fit the factory gooseneck hitch in your Ram are all great quality. There are a few differences though, mainly the way the ball is locked into place. The Curt has an integrated lever in the top of the ball that activates the ball bearings in the shank. The lever is made of steel and very easy to access and use. The Reese ball has a similar lever only you pull and turn it. It's also made of plastic intead of steel...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch Ball for 2018 Ram 2500 Cummins with Factory Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Prep
    For your 2018 Ram 2500 with factory gooseneck and 5th wheel prep package, the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # C60618 is the most popular option. You can alternatively use the Reese # RP30140 or the B&W # BWGNXA2062. The biggest difference is in the way the gooseneck hitch ball attaches. The Curt lever is on the top of the ball and is metal. The Reese lever is also on the top of the ball and is easier to use but also is plastic, so it does have...

You are going to want to do is spay lube between the collar and hitch ball, around where you think the retention balls would be. The more the better...

These come with safety chain loops and a 2-5/16" hitch ball. They are both rated for 30,000 lbs so either one will be great for your application.

    I contacted both Curt and Reese who both confirmed that there is a difference between the front and back puck sizes on your 2017 Ram 3500. This means that the safety chain loops that come with the Curt # C60618 and the Reese # RP30140 will only be compatible with the rear pucks as that is where Ram recommends anchoring the safety chains. We do have the Erickson Retractable Tie-Down Anchors for Truck Bed Stake Pockets # EM01003 and the Putco Push-Up Tie-Downs for Front and Rear Truck...

  • Gooseneck Ball Recommendation for 2018 RAM 3500
    The highest capacity hitch ball we have for your 2018 Ram is 30k like the Curt ball part # C60618 which comes with safety chain loops. Your truck is most likely not rated for towing over 30k so having a hitch ball rated higher wouldn't gain you additional capacity as you are only as strong as the weakest component in your towing setup. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well that shows it installed in a similar 2017 Ram.

This kit includes the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball that will mount to the factory gooseneck receiver and the 2 safety-chain hookups that will attach right to those pucks in the bed. The hitch ball has a 30,000 pound towing weight capacity.

What sets this apart from the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram # RP30140 is the design of the gooseneck hitch balls and safety chain loops.

  • Fit of Safety Chain Loops in 2016 Ram 3500 Factory Gooseneck Prep Package
    In a truck that has a factory-installed gooseneck prep package, such as your 2015 Ram 3500 long bed, the rear pucks and front pucks are different. The safety chain loops that are included in kits like Curt # C60618 and Reese # RP30140 are intended to install in the rear pucks, the ones closest to the trailer. This way, if the trailer uncoupled from the ball the chains would prevent the nose of the trailer from hitting the back of the cab.

    I spoke with my contact at Curt and he had a way for you to release the ball from the underside of the hitch. From underneath of the vehicle the customer will have to remove the cover/plug on the bottom of the ball if there is one. This will reveal the internals of the ball. Inside the ball he will see the metal bar that holds the balls in place(see attached photo). He will need to rotate the bar 90 degrees to release the balls that lock it in place. The internals of the ball will likely...

  • Troubleshooting Gooseneck Ball Not Releasing From 2014 Ram 3500 With Factory Rail Kit
    If you have the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitch # C60618, the pin needs to be lifted and rotated only about 90 degrees to release the steel ball bearing pressure. The Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch # RP30140 has a wider tab that is slightly easier to rotate that same 90 degrees for removal. If the ball will not release when in proper position, I recommend spraying some penetrating oil like the UltraLube Biobased...

  • Troubleshooting Curt Gooseneck Hitch Ball Stuck in Hitch
    To remove your Curt gooseneck ball I recommend first using a penetrating oil WD40 to spray into that hitch ball lever and also around the edge of the hole on the top and bottom. Use a little vibration from a rubber mallet to let the oil find its way into all the bound locations. Let sit for a few minutes and then try again. If that still doesn't release the ball I'd try again but let the lube sit over night.
