Video Transcript for Reese Gooseneck RP30140 Review

Today we're going to review part number RP30140. This is a Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for the Ram Factory Installed Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch. This is a custom fit part number designed to fit the Rams starting in 2013. What I would recommend on a custom fit part is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. This part includes everything shown here on the table. A pop-in gooseneck ball, two of the safety chain lock assemblies, the rubber gooseneck cover and a nice storage bag to carry around these parts. This is a hitch ball which is designed for use with a factory installed gooseneck hitch on the 2013 and newer Ram trucks.

This pop-in ball fits securely into the hitch and it's easy to insert and remove. The way you would do that, on the very top you'll see you just lift up on this lever, turn it 90 degrees, it stays open and that releases the ball bearings in the bottom there. Drop this into the opening and then just turn this and the balls will pop out and lock into place. If this doesn't retract fully you just need to twist it a little bit and then once it retracts that means they've locked into place. The two safety chain hookups included, they're also very easy to install. These would attach directly to those pucks that are built in to the under bed rails for simple mounting and removal.

Same way which you'll do on these, first what you'll want to do is pull up on this lever right here so you just have the tab showing, then you'll go to the puck, drop this in, turn it 90 degrees, and then release that. That dropping in will lock those into place. You'll do this the same on the other side. Very simple installation. It comes with this rubber cover and this is to keep the ball hole free from any dirt or debris so it doesn't build up on the inside. Once you're not using the ball this will go over that hole to protect it.

It also comes with this nice storage bag which will keep the ball in good condition, and helps you carry around all these parts. This bag is very nice, it has a very sturdy bottom, has a nice handle on it. It even has a draw string to pull it closed when everything is in it. The specs on this part, it's gross towing weight is 30,000 pounds, but you will have to remember the capacity will be limited to that of what is on the hitch of your vehicle. The ball size of this is your industry standard 2-5/16" diameter. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. That should do it for the review on part number RP30140.

So far so good. The only problem was finding safety chain hooks that fit the safety hookups. I gave up and used heavy duty d-rings instead.

2016 Ram 3500


When the package arrived, I set to opening it, (very well packed). Everything that I ordered was there. Got the Gooseneck adapter figured out and got the kingpin collar installed. After I moved the truck so that I could place the adapter under the fifth wheel assembly the set up was very simple. Setting up the ball and the adapter took me about 1.5 hours to complete. Very good equipment. Would recommend to anyone that wanted to have the versatility in towing options. Sorry, no photos. The reason I went this way was due to the cost of a fifth wheel hitch for the 2016 Ram 3500/ with the pucks per-set in the bed and on the frame this worked out to be a little less expensive to do. 330572

This kit will only fit Dodge trucks. The gooseneck ball is the same as the Ford versions, but the safetry chain anchors are different on the Dodge system than on the Ford.

2013 Dodge Ram


I bought the Reese Elite pop-in ball for my 2013 Ram3500 and put it to use with a heavy load. It fits perfect and is easy and fast to install or remove. I am very happy with it and can't understand why anyone would want a different system. The safety chain hook-ups are good also, but require a large hook as a smaller hook won't work. I will recommend this product to anyone. 194495

2014 Dodge Ram 3500


The Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit was perfect fit for my 2014 RAM 3500 with the factory installed gooseneck prep kit. Once it arrived, my wife and I had no problem installing and removing any of the components from the kit. Being able to put all parts in the handy carrying bag is a bonus to. As for etrailer.com, delivery was faster than expected and much appreciated. The video and reviews on the website for this product (not to mention the price) were the main reasons why I purchased this product and purchased it from etrailer.com. If I had one con, it would be that ball hitch needs a sleeve to protect it from being dinged or scratched in the carrying bag, but no big deal. Thanks etrailer.com! 178262

2016 Ram 3500


I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th wheel tow package already present on truck. I wanted an additional goose neck product and looked at various suppliers online and found etrailer products offered for sale. After to speaking with Heather who answered all my questions as well as reviewed feedback from customers I chose to go with the Reese gooseneck kit. I received the product within the shipping date provided to me and I went out to install it. It took me all of 3 mins to install with no issues. I did my best to remove, shake and couldn't get them to budge. It took me a total of 5 mins to remove the parts and storing them back under the rear seat. The parts fit perfect, look great as well as we're the cheapest price I could find. Their online video is all the install instructions you need! I will definitely use etrailer in the future. Thanks Heather! 296158

  • 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.

  • Replacement Gooseneck Ball for Mopar Ram Hitch Prep Package
  • The Replacement Hitch Ball # BWGNXA2000 is designed to fit B and W Turnover hitches. Since you said you have factory equipment I am assuming you mean you have the Mopar hitch prep package and are in need of a gooseneck ball. If so, you would actually need the part # C60601, or part # RP30140 if you want the safety chain loops as well.

  • 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....

  • Solution for Safety Chains that Won't Fit Ram Hitch Prep Safety Chain Loops
  • The safety chain loops that come with the # RP30140 that you referenced are shaped in such a way that they won't allow any and all safety chains to attach to them. We have found that the safety chains part # FCHA0070324 will fit the loops though so your best option at this point will be to replace the chains on your trailer. These chains have a ridiculously high capacity of 45,200 lbs so they would work very well for you.

  • 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...

  • Is the Gooseneck Puck System Interchangeable for Both Ford and Ram Trucks
  • The OEM puck system for Ford and Ram unfortunately are not compatible with each other. This is the same case for both gooseneck and 5th wheel hitch options. For example, the Reese Gooseneck Kit # RP30137 is a confirmed fit for a 2016 Ford F-250 with the factory rail kit, but for a 2016 Ram 2500 with the factory rail kit you will instead need the Reese Gooseneck Kit # RP30140. I have attached some installation videos for you to review on both products.

  • Will Reese Elite Gooseneck Ball Kit # Rp30137 Fit 2014 Dodge Ram With Factory Prep Package
  • I spoke with my contact at Cequent about the Elite Gooseneck Kit # RP30137. These are designed for the Ford prep tow package. Although there are customers that have used these in the front pucks on their Dodge Ram, it is not recommended to use the safety chains in the front pucks. For the 2014 Dodge Ram with the hitch prep package, the kit I recommend is part # RP30140. This is designed for Dodge trucks with the hitch prep package installed. If the safety chain holder is all that is...

  • Loose Gooseneck Ball in 2014 Ram 3500 with Factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package
  • If it is just the ball that is moving around some movement is normal. But the ball should move less than 1/16 of an inch in any direction. Movement beyond that indicates a problem. The ball may not be the correct one for your 2014 Ram 3500. Or there could be something wrong with the ball and it is not in the locked position. If it is the hitch itself that is moving around under the bed of the truck then that is a major concern. Do not tow with the truck and take it to a dealership immediately....

  • 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.

This was confirmed by my contact at Reese. This item is a ball only. If you need the safety chain hookups you will instead want part # RP30140. Both balls carry the same 30K rating.

  • Gooseneck Ball and Safety Chain Loops for a 2017 Ram 2500 with Factory Prep Package
  • For a 2017 Ram 2500 that has the factory gooseneck trailer hitch the only ball and safety chain loop options feature a removable ball but not one that can fit in the hole upside down. 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...

  • Are Safety Chain Tie Downs with # RP30134 Sold Separately
  • The Tie-Downs are indeed sold separately as part # RP30145. They are sold individually, so you'll need two of them. The tie downs are intended to be used in the rear pucks, according to Reese.

  • How to Identify Factory Gooseneck Hitch Preparation Package Installation in 2014 Ram 3500
  • You can simply contact your local Ram dealership with your truck's VIN and they can check to see if your specific truck left the factory with the gooseneck prep package installed. This step will also confirm that your current set up was factory-installed and not an aftermarket installation. Going to the dealership is a good idea as it will also allow you to confirm the truck's rated towing capacity and whether or not it has other towing-related equipment such as a supplementary transmission...

  • 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.

  • 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...

For this, I recommend the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch part # RP30140. This kit comes with a 2-5/16" hitch ball, two safety chain loops, and a handy storage bag. It will fit perfectly into the gooseneck cutout you have in your bed. There are currently no recalls on the Reese Elite Series Pop-In...

  • Need Gooseneck Ball and Safety Chain Hooks for 2013 Ram 3500 Dually Pickup with Under-bed Hitch
  • The Reese part you reference, # RP30137, consists of a goose neck hitch ball and safety chain hooks. The ball would fit your 2013 Ram 3500 under-bed goose neck hitch. The safety chain hooks may not fit as they are intended specifically for applications in 2011 and newer Ford Super-Duty trucks with the OEM Power Puck system (and with Reese Elite series hitches). I spoke to my technical contact at Reese and they offer the Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit # RP30140 that includes a pop-in ball...

  • Does the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit for Ford, GM and Nissan Work with Andersen Ultimate Hitch
  • I have a solution for you, but unfortunately we've had several complaints regarding the Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel connection and the B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit, # BWGNXA2061. The hitch ball does not allow the Andersen Ultimate adapter to sit flush with the bed. Instead, you will want the Reese Pop-In Ball Kit, # RP30137, if you have a Ford Super Duty or a Nissan Titan XD, part # RP30140, if you have a Ram truck, or # RP30891, if you have a GM truck. These hitch balls do not extend...

  • Safety Chain Loops for a 2014 Ram 2500 with Factory 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package
  • For just safety chain loops for the OEM 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package on your 2014 Ram 2500, you will need to use # RP30145. These are sold in quantities of one so if you wanted 2 you would enter 2 in the quantity box.

  • Can Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Hitch Adapter be Used with Ram Pop In Hitch Ball Kit
  • Sounds like you have one of the pop in Ram truck balls # RP30140 for fitting the factory rail kit of the truck. There's no reason an Andersen fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter like the # AM3225 couldn't be used.

  • Pop-In Gooseneck Ball and Safety Chain Loops for a 2016 Ram 2500 with OEM Prep Package
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese, who makes the under bed kit for the 2016 Ram 2500, and for a ball only you can use # RP19311. The safety chain loops in the kit # RP30137 will not work with the Ram, though the ball would. Dealerships may not be aware that this ball will fit the Fords and the Rams for 2016. I have linked a video review of this ball for you. For a ball with the safety chain loops that will fit I recommend # RP30140 or # C60618.

  • Offset Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • We do have a possible solution for you but there isn't a hitch ball like the Reese # RP30140 that offers an offset to the factory gooseneck hitch in your 2017 Ram 2500 short bed. Instead I recommend using the B&W Extend-A-Goose Coupler # BWTEXA4200 on your gooseneck trailer. It'll give you 10 inches of offset which is way more than you'll get from a hitch ball. It fits on standard 4 inch diameter gooseneck outer tubes.

  • Recommended Lube to Keep Hitch Ball Locking Mechanism Working Smoothly
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese and he recommended keeping a light coating of grease like part # 58117 on the hitch ball both top and bottom. This will keep the ball bearing locking mechanism working smoothly and prevent corrosion and quiet the connection to a degree. It will help extend the life of the ball too. The lubrication allows grit to slide around more, instead of just grinding directly into the metal.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Plate that Fits Reese Adapter for 2014 Ram Factory Prep Package
  • The Reese adapter # RP30154 for the 2014 Rams with the prep package has the 2 wider sets of mounting slots at 20-1/2 and 29 inches on center side to side but not the inner set at 10 inches apart. The Curt Spyder gooseneck plate # 16085 will fit in the 20-1/2 inch slots on the adapter. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. The factory prep package on your 2014 Ram should have come with the hole for a gooseneck ball. If yours does have this, we have found that you can...
