Video Transcript for etrailer Gooseneck Trailer Coupler - Coupler with Outer and Inner Tube - GCPN-30008 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at RAM Round Gooseneck Coupler with the load-bearing pin, 8 inches of adjustment, and a 30,000 pound weight capacity. Now this gooseneck coupler will let you hook your gooseneck trailer up to your tow vehicle. The coupler will fit around a 2 5/16th diameter ball, has 8 inches of adjustment to fit your application.The spring-loaded handle right over here is for easy hookup. You just pull up on it, put it right in there, and it'll release the latch there to go over the gooseneck ball. Once it goes around the gooseneck ball, you can release that spring-loaded latch handle and it'll lock it into place. The hidden spring latching mechanism protects the moving parts.The ball clamp underneath that goes around the gooseneck ball, is a curved internal ball clamp, secures your hitch ball, provides a nice strong tight fit.

And a tight ball fit will help reduce jarring and rattling. Has the two set screws right here, which will secure the inner tube at the desired height that you need. If you notice on this one being a higher rated one, it has the belly band right here on the bottom of the outer tube, it adds strength and durability.This is a low profile design, gives a nice sleek appearance. It's a sturdy steel construction. The load-bearing pin and clip, you can see is all included.

This does have a, meets the SAE J2638 in certification. It is a weld-on installation. The outer tube will weld directly to your gooseneck trailer. And again, the ball size is designed to fit as a standard 2 5/16 standard gooseneck ball.The range of vertical adjustment, in other words, when you take your pin out and release your set screw, it'll have a range of vertical distance of 8 inches. So when it's fully retracted, like it is now, it's going to measure 30 inches from bottom to the very top.

When you let it extend out, it's 38 inches.The outer tube diameter is 4 1/2 inches. Let me just turn this so you could see the inner and outer tube. Outer tube diameter is 4 1/2 inches. Inner tube diameter is 4 inches. Tube wall thickness on them is twenty-four hundredth of an inch.

And the weight capacity on this one is 30,000 pounds.That should do it for the review on the RAM Round Gooseneck Coupler, with the load-bearing pin, 8 inches of adjustment, and a 30,000 pound weight capacity.

This is the OEM coupler and outer tube on my new flatbed trailer. I ordered the trailer with the kingpin inner tube. I decided to use a goosenck hitch plate on my fifth wheel rails and this gooseneck coupler during the winter and to have in case a friend needs to use my trailer and doesn’t have a fifth wheel hitch. I didn’t need the outer tube, but I now have spare set screws, jam nuts and load bearing pin. This was less than some inner tube-only prices. Only reason I didn’t give five stars is because of the weld splatter that needs to be cleaned up before painting. 450580

  • How to Use the Ram Gooseneck Coupler Part # GCPN-30008
  • The Ram Gooseneck Coupler part # GCPN-30008 gets welded on the trailer and then attaches to the gooseneck hitch ball in the bed of your 2017 Ram 3500. You will want to use the adjustment holes on the coupler to try and get the trailer as level to the tow vehicle as possible. Once this is done you can then pull the spring pin on the coupler to secure it to the hitch ball in the bed.
