Video Transcript for Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit Installation- 2017 Ram 2500

Today on our 2017 RAM 2500 we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit for the RAM under-bed gooseneck hitch, part number is C60618. Now the ball itself is a 2-5/16" diameter, which is going to be pretty common when it comes to the gooseneck connectors. It offers a 30,000 pound weight capacity. Of course your truck is going to be the limiting factor. You don't want to exceed what your truck's tow rating is. That chrome plated finish is going to keep it looking nice for a long time to come. Our safety chain connection points, heavy duty steel, and very convenient size for connecting your safety chains to.

They're going to have the black powder coat finish again to make sure they look good for a long time to come. When we're ready for installation we just need to grab our heavy duty box here, open it up and inside we'll see our 2-5/16" ball, our two safety chain connection points, and the rubber cap plugs designed to fit in the top of the gooseneck head itself. Now the installation's really quite simple. You can see our lever lock here on the top of the ball, we'll cam that up and just turn it to the side so it can't close back down. I'm going to remove the center cap, place the ball down and in, then just cam that closed. You can see that'll have it locked into position, and when our gooseneck's actually over it's going to hold that lever down and keep it from coming up.

Now the ball has this pretty snug fit. There's a little bit of play front to back and side to side, but not so much that I'd be worried about it. Safety chain connection points are going to have a small clip on them. We'll pull that out, pull our pin out, put that in position and rotate it. Our pin will go back in, and then our keeper. You see that's going to allow a little bit of rotation so as our chains move side to side it'll move freely with it.

When using your larger safety chain connection you can see they're going to clip around there nicely. This is the type that uses the 3/8 pin here through the bottom, so you can keep that in mind. Now comparing this safety chain connection point with others available out there on the market, the keeper on our chain would not go fully around that other type. Now when not in use we can simply pull that lever back up, twist it, remove the ball, and we've got the nice Curt cap that'll fit right down in there. Kind of eliminates the need for this cap, which can be kind of difficult to remove every time. That's going to complete our look at the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops kit for the RAM under-bed gooseneck hitch.

Part number is C60618 on our 2017 RAM 2500.

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

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

Ball is great. The hooks for the chains are awfully big and unsightly but they will work fine. Service and delivery speed was great. 678107

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

The product worked great and the customer service department did a great job of helping me pick out exactly what I needed. I ordered the product through etrailer and actually paid $100 extra to have it shipped overnight. It arrived at 9 AM (even though I didn't ordered it until 2 PM the previous day). Even with the cost of overnight shipping, it was still $25 cheaper than any store within 100 miles of me. The stores all said that they didn't have it in stock and would need to order it and it would take a few weeks to arrive. So glad I found out about etrailer. 194686

Being new to goosenecks I had my doubts as to how this product would perform. The dodge dealership quoted me over $400 just for the parts so that spooked me. When I got this product, I immediately went and installed it and was very surprised at how easy and secure the ball and safety chain loops fit. I went to the ranch and used it right away pulling over 30 heifers in one load on my new gooseneck trailer. Thanks so much etrailer!!! 434254

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.

I have been using a Reese setup I borrowed from a friend when I found the Curt ball and safety chain loops kit and decided to order it. I received it and found the ball to be heavier built with a steel release lever and not plastic and the loops larger and easier to hook the safety chains. All for less money. Very happy !!!! 489884

Chain hooks have a locking pin which rust and freezes up after about 2 weeks. Pain in the butt to get them out to put my fifth wheel in. 636528


Comments

Per the instructions, Curt recommends keeping those pins well lubricated with silicone spray.

Customer service is outstanding! I needed this hitch for my new Dodge Ram 3500 but had trouble finding one near me. Fortunately found etrailer website and able to order it. Then did find one at a local trailer store for more. Etrailer was less. Dodge dealership was over $300 and still had to order it. Ordered it on Friday and received it on Monday. Magic.

No complaints at all. Got this one because my B&W goose was too tall for my load to ride level. It's easy to drop and lock. Nothing's come loose or made me question the strength. Overall an excellent option. Especially if your current goose hitch is too tall (as in my case) 714070

I bought my first set up directly from RAM. I found the side safety chain attachments were so thick and wide that i could not fully clasp the safety chain hooks onto them. I felt it was too dodgy a setup to use. The last time I used the trailer one of them came off. These are a perfect match for the chain and hooks on my trailer. Easy to put in. 683979

I bought this product to us in my 2016 Ram 2500 with the 5th wheel prep and an Andersen Ultimate hitch. It is top notch quality, and the anchors DO work with my Ultimate hitch. The fit is tight, but the anchor mounts do clear the hitch base. This is a well made product in a nice storage case. I recommend it. 681062

Ask the Experts about this Curt Gooseneck

Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • 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 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter for 2018 Ram 3500
  • The reason the Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5G is not recommended for use with factory-installed gooseneck prep packages on Fords from 2011-present and Ram from 2013-present is because they use gooseneck hitch ball # RP19311 that has a plastic handle on top (see photo) that folds into the hitch ball and the Convert-A-Ball # CAB-C5G has a nut on the inside that will damage the gooseneck ball. For that reason, if you wanted to use the Convert-A-Ball on...

  • Gooseneck Ball to Fit 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory Gooseneck Hitch to Install an Andersen Ultimate
  • The replacement ball, part # AM3201, you referenced fits into the Andersen hitch but it won't fit the ball hole in your 2014 Ram 3500. Since you asked it measures about 8-1/2 inches in total height, 5 inches from the top pin hole to the very top, 6-1/4 inches from the center hole to the top, and 7-1/2 inches from the bottom hole to the top. It sounds like you have the factory gooseneck package in your truck so I've linked the hitch balls we have that fit with that package. If you want...

  • Recommended Taller Gooseneck Hitch Ball Compatible with 2018 Ram 3500 Factory Pucks
  • You are correct that the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch # BWGNXA2062 is taller at 5-3/4 inches above the bed. The hitch ball is only available in the kit as you stated. I reached out to my tech contact at Curt and the kit # C60692 will allow the hitch ball to fit your Ram but the safety chain anchors will not fit your Ram pucks. So what you want is the hitch ball # C60629 (and the Ram safety chain anchors # C60617 which came with your original...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Ball for a 2018 Dodge Ram 3500 with Factory Tow Package
  • The Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit # C60618 as well as the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit # RP30140 for the 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 are confirmed to work with the factory tow package on the 2018 Dodge Ram 3500 as well. 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.

  • How Will Taller Gooseneck Ball Affect Trailer Height
  • The B&W ball, part # BWGNXA2062, will sit higher off the truck bed by about 1-1/4 inches when compared to the Curt # C60618 and the Reese # RP30140 hitch balls. If the B&W's height helps your trailer sit more level then it may improve your set up but that slight difference isn't going to make much impact very often. Although, making the trailer as level as possible is always better.

  • 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...

This is because of the design of the hitch itself. The two options are from Curt # C60618 and Reese # RP30140. The Curt option is more popular option due to the lower cost. Both come with covers to cover the ball hole when not in use. The Reese option includes a little storage bag to help protect the ball...

  • What Size Clevis Hook is Needed for the Safety Chain Loops on the Curt Gooseneck Kit Part # C60618
  • The clevis hook on the Tow Ready Safety Chain Kit part # 49150 is 5/16" diameter. Therefore if this hook will not work with the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitch part # C60618 then you will want to move up to a 3/8" diameter clevis hook like the one included with the Buyers Products Trailer Safety Chain part # 337BSC3842. This clevis hook should be large enough to accommodate the safe chain loops on the above Curt Gooseneck Kit. You will need two of them...

  • Safety Chains and Hooks for Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit
  • To fit your Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loop Kit # C60618, you need hooks that can fit over the roughly 1" wide top and 3/4" sides. You could use the Curt Clevis Hook # C81980 which has a 1-1/4" opening. This hook has a lot more weight capacity than you need but should fit just fine.

  • 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,...

On the clevis hook itself the opening is about 1-3/8 inches. The thickest part of the forged metal is 1-5/8 inches and the widest open point inside the hook is 1-7/8 inches.

  • Are the Front and Rear Pucks on a 2018 Ram 3500 Different

The safety chain loops included with the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Hitch part # C60618, B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit for Ram Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch part # BWGNXA2062, and Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch part # RP30140 will only...

  • Gooseneck Ball Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ram 3500 for Use with Convert a Ball Adapter
  • The adapter can't be used with the factory rail kits as the Convert a Ball damages the release lever on top of the gooseneck ball. If you do not have the factory hitch prep package you'd want the B and W Tunoverball gooseneck hitch part # BWGNRK1314. I attached install videos for both hitch setups as well.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch Ball and Safety Chains for a 2015 Ram 3500
  • It sounds like you are looking for a gooseneck hitch ball and safety chain loops to work with the factory prep package you have on your 2015 Ram 3500. If that is the case then you can use the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit part # C60618 that you came from. This kit includes a 2-5/16" hitch ball, two safety chain loops, a hitch cover, and a carrying case all of which will fit your Ram 3500. I have attached an install video for you as well.

  • Gooseneck Ball and Safety Chain Hooks for 2018 Ram 3500 with Factory Gooseneck Hitch
  • We sure do! For the factory gooseneck hitch on your 2018 Ram 3500 I recommend the Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit # C60618. 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.

  • 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.

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Hitch And Gooseneck Hitch For 2017 Ram 3500 With 6 Foot Bed And Factory Rails
  • For your 2017 Ram 3500 with 6 foot Bed and Factory Rail Kit, I recommend the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R24 Slider - Dual Jaw - 24,000 lbs # C16546. This sliding 5th wheel hitch connects to your factory rail kit using the Adapter Rails for Curt 5th Wheel Hitch w/ Slider - Ram Towing Prep Package # C16022 or the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ram OEM 5th Wheel Towing Prep Package - 25,000 lbs # RP30154. Both the hitch and the adapter are necessary for this system. You do not...

  • Gooseneck Ball for a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Factory Prep Package
  • There are a couple of ball kit options that fit the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package on your 2016 Ram 3500. I recommend the Curt kit, # C60618, which is the ball, safety chain tie downs, and a cover for the ball hole when the ball is not being used. (None of balls the fit the OEM system will hide in the ball cavity like the Turnover ball hitches from B&W.) You can also use the Reese kit # RP30140 which also includes the tie downs and cover but also includes a storage bag....

  • Gooseneck And Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendations For 2017 Ram 2500 With A Short Bed
  • Ideally, you would buy your truck with the factory rail kit already installed. And to be honest, I recommend the long bed since you said you are going to tow a fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer. An 8 ft bed lets you make sharp turns when towing with no issue for clearance. If you purchase a short bed with the factory rail kit, and you want to tow a gooseneck trailer, I recommend The Curt Ball and Safety Chain Loops Kit # C60618. This kit comes with a ball with an easy-to-use lever and...

  • Can the Reese Goose Box Adapters Height be Adjusted
  • You are correct. The Reese Goose Boxes, including # RP94716-61301, adjust vertically where they mount to the trailer only. There is no other height adjustment on it. With a gooseneck hitch height isn't normally an issue unless the hitch is in a flatbed truck or a lifted truck which would be taller than a regular stock pickup truck. Another thing to consider with the Goose Boxes is that they only fit in place of certain OEM pin boxes. To determine if there is one that will fit your trailer...

  • Curt or Reese Gooseneck Hitch Kit Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500
  • For your 2016 Ram 3500 you would want the Curt gooseneck ball part # C60618 as it has the same capacities as the Reese at a much better price. I also like the safety chain loop release design better on the Curt setup as well.
