Video Transcript for Reese Elite Series Pop In Ball Kit Review

Today we're going to be reviewing the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram under-bed gooseneck hitches, part number RP30140. This gooseneck ball kit is unique in the sense that it has everything you will need to tow your gooseneck trailer. It comes in a convenient carrying pouch, has a cover for your gooseneck ball when you're not using it, has two tie-down or safety chain loops, and of course the ball itself. The ball itself is a two and five-sixteenths ball, and it has a weight capacity of 30,000 pounds, although you are limited to the capacity of your own vehicle and hitch. To use this, you simply take off the covers to your under-bed gooseneck system. I'll set those off to the side for now, and put them in the vehicle when we're done. Then, we'll install our products. To install the gooseneck ball, you'll see this black portion up at the top.

You pop that up and turn it off to the side. Now it's in the open position, and the ball bearings here will actually go in when you set it in place. At this point, you can take it in, take it out, as often as you need. Now, to lock in place, you twist and let down, and your gooseneck ball is ready to go. Next, we'll go ahead and install the safety chain loops. You'll match up the feet to match your receiver here, and then twist.

Once it's down like that, you can't remove them, because this will keep it from turning. Now, to remove them, just lift up, twist, and lift up. We'll repeat this for the other side. When you're ready to take the ball out, you don't want any dirt or grime to get down there and possibly affect the ball going back in. In this case, we're actually going to have a couple options. The kit does come with a rubber cover you can put on there to protect it from the dirt and grime, or the truck itself came with this cap that will do essentially the same thing.

Pretty much it's up to you. Once everything's said and done, you're done using your gooseneck ball, again, a really nice feature about this, you can put everything in a convenient carrying case. Again, we'll go ahead and remove the ball, get our carrying case out, and place our ball inside. Remove our safety chain loops, place them in the bag as well. Finally, we'll install a rubber cap for the ball to make sure that it doesn't get grimed, and then we'll install the final two caps over our receivers. There you have it for the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram under-bed gooseneck hitches, 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.

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

I would strongly suggest you purchase something else. Like many others have posted about in reviews all over the internet, this design is indeed very poor. The ball works fine and I have no complaints there. The safety chain pucks however are another story. The top loop of the puck is too wide, The safety chain hook won't fit all the way into the puck loop and allow the hook keeper to close. I have 3 big name gooseneck trailers and a 5th wheel camper with a gooseneck conversion. None of the chains out of 4 trailers fit these. I even went to a local supplier to see if i could purchase new hook ends to make them work. No luck, nothing would work due to the dimension not working out one way or the other. I had to turn around and spend a significant amount of money and buy the Curt pucks. Surely by now Reese has received hundreds upon hundreds of complaints about this. Unbelievable that Reese did not update the design even before I purchased this a year ago. 616287

Stong and heavy duty built to last. Everything came individually wrapped and in excellent condition. Course i did notice the standard problem with the handles too wide to handle any type of safty chain. Will be getting strong weight/shock load class D rings to attach the safty chains too. within these. The storage case comes in handy and fits snug with the 2.5 to 2 in factory reciver and a 7 in drop under the back passenger seat in the factory cubby. Would buy again if needed. 595675

I ordered a product that was intended to be a Christmas gift, and it was already a little too close to Christmas. The part was out of stock and the staff had the insight and courtesy to call me personally and ask if I would be OK with the same product, just a different brand so I could gift on time. I really appreciated them going the extra mile and providing personal service. I received the product with time to spare! Thank you etrailer! 462087

Ask the Experts about this Reese 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Andersen Ultimate Fifth Wheel Hitch in 2018 Ram 3500 With Factory Rail Kit
  • The only way to use the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # AM3200 in a 2018 Ram 3500 with the factory puck system is to use an adapter, and I recommend the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # RP30154. You would not be able to use the safety chains of the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch # RP30140 because the adapter will mount in the puck holes where the safety chain loops would also mount.

  • 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...

  • How to Identify Factory Gooseneck Hitch Preparation Package Installation in 2014 Ram 3500

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...

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. I pulled both of these kits...

They are sold individually, and will ONLY fit the two rear pucks in the truck bed, as the front and the rear pucks are sized differently. From what I'm told, by DOT regulations, only two safety chain attachments are required. Reese does not offer a chain loop for the front pucks.

  • 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.

  • Taller Hitch Ball For Elite Series Gooseneck In 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup
  • The hitch ball that will fit your Elite Series underbed gooseneck is part # RP19315. This gives you 1-inch more than the standard balls included with the hitch. If the additional inch does not prove to work, you can check out the attached link I have provided for gooseneck couplers. You may find an adjustable coupler will give you the height you need.

  • How to Determine if Factory Gooseneck Trailer Hitch is Installed in a 2016 Ram 2500
  • If you have the factory gooseneck prep kit in your 2016 Ram 2500 then you'll have holes in the truck's bed that safety chain loops and hitch ball included with part # RP30140 fit into. I've attached a picture of what they look like installed and if you have the locations for them you can't miss them. If you have the factory kit then # RP30140 is all you'll need. If you don't have the factory kit then you'll need to install a gooseneck underbed trailer hitch like the Curt # C60614....

  • 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.

  • 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.
