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.

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

Looks good, however, it was made in China, something I didn't see on the website. Hope it lasts. 195353


Comments

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.

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

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

Product took less than a minute to install on my 2015 Ram 3500. Would highly recommend this product for those who have the factory 5th wheel and gooseneck prep package from Ram in their truck. 247959

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

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.

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


Will try to keep this as real as it gets out there. 2015 F250 XLT Crew Cab 8' Bed Ordered the Reese Elite Gooseneck and Barger 90 degree wiring harness. Received the gooseneck hitch and harness quickly. Free shipping got here in two days. Item came in two boxes. The rails were poorly packaged. Box was basically open and beat to hell, leaving markings on the rails' paint. Didn't bother me, but might others. The pucks were loose in the box and were lucky they did not fall out. The second box with the ball, ball mount, harness and misc. hardware was packed so well it took about 5 minutes to take off all the staples and then each product was individually boxed inside. Wish they would treat the rail box with the same care. Instructions are ok. Used the online install video instead. The video is slightly simplified as getting the nuts on the bolts is a slight challenge for a one man install. I was able to do the entire installation by myself with the exception of the four rail-to-frame bolts. Getting these snugged up to the point of being able to torque took two people simply because the nuts are hidden on the backside of the rail...particularly the driver-side front...which is slightly behind the gas tank, but still accessible. My F250 is factory lifted 4-5" so I did not have to remove the rear wheels, nor did I have to remove the spare tire or heat shield. Lower trucks will need the rear wheels pulled. Installing the ball mounting plate took some doing. Got one bolt on then decided to actually install the ball into the plate from above pulling the plate tight below. I used vice grips to basically keep the plate mounted tight rather than trying to lift it from underneath with one had and bolt it with the other. For me the most time consuming part of the project was getting the darned bed bolts off to lift the right side. Broke the T50 bit they supplied and then two others. Finally gave up and ground off two of the remaining bolts...and ordered replacements. Tip for those doing this on their own, you may want to spray the bolts from under with PB Blaster the day before you intend to install. I forgot and the issue was likely that the bolts were rusted. The wiring harness was a breeze, although I wish a shorter version was available. (Perhaps I missed it). Had to loop/zip tie about 2-3' under the bed. Connecting between the factory connectors did require me to pull the mounting plate. Was a bit tight to just slip the new connector in. Also, working the harness thru the hole in the bed side was a bit tight. Install probably took 10 minutes after getting the holes drilled. Total install time for this slightly skilled guy was about 3-1/2 hours...after the bed bolts fiasco. Oh...and did it all with a cast on the left arm. Ha! Now to see how she tows! 430852

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


Item was received well packaged. All parts were received as expected. I wish I would have taken pictures of box when it was received or as I installed it on my 2015 F250 but rest assured it fit into my Ford with the 5th wheel prep package quite easily. Directions were adequate. My only issue was I did not know if the pre-asembly of the base was torqued correctly. There was no mention of it in the packaging and I do not own a torque wrench so it would have been comforting to know that it was done properly before shipment. However it appeared to be okay and I had no issues towing my 5th wheel the 15 miles from the dealership to my home. Also there is no mention prior to ordering that you need lithium grease to properly lube the moving parts. Make sure you have on hand prior to assembly. Overall, excellent product and I am definitely please with it and highly recommend it. 203214


Comments

I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase one year ago of this hitch. We have towed our 32 crusader across the country and back via different routes with no issues. I have read where others find it heavy to lift in and out of the truck bed. I would too except I remove the hitch plate to lighten the load so that I am lifting two relatively lite pieces instead of one heavy piece. We take the 5th wheel out on the road about every two months so I am happy with how I can separate the two in order to lift them in or out of the truck bed.Extremely easy to install, less than 5 minutes. I am totally satisfied with this product.

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


My Reese Elite 5th wheel hitch arrived UPS. 143lbs and used a hand dolly to take off the truck and wheel to my garage. Came packaged ok. Pre-assembled and everything was included. Read the Manual, which for older people helps, showing lube and parts, install info etc...referring back to the manual/instructions. Used a wooden table(same height as my tailgate) to wheel it right up to the gate and slid the hitch on a piece of cardboard(from the box) into the position of the puck system. Moving the base first then the hitch plate next. The hitch install was simple and easy. Did not need any help. I did call customer service and made a slight 1/4 turn adjustment to two legs for a tighter fit. There again referring to the manual/instructions provided with the hitch. Very pleased with the hitch over all. It served its purpose and I believe will give us many years of service. We pull a 5th wheel gvwr of 11769lbs and completed over 1200 miles of safe towing. Pleased with my purchase. Thank you. 159385

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


I have installed this hitch 4 times. It is a solid piece. With a little care in the mounting adjustments, there are no rattles or noises, even when the camper is not connected. The only problem I have is the instructions indicated drilling 4 3" inch holes in the bed. A 2 1/4" set of holes is more appropriate. They leave too much room for installation error. I mount the rails below and use a pointed bolt from the bottom to mark the hole location to drill the bed. Other than that - I think this is a great hitch. 125537

Fantastic! I would recommend this hitch to anyone who wants a quality product.

Review from a similar Reese Elite Series in Gooseneck


I have owned B&W, Curt and Reese Hitches for 5th wheel trailers. When I recently purchased a toy hauler I needed a heavy duty hitch for the 20,000# load. I decided to spend the extra money and get the Reese because of previous good experience and fitting the installed pucks in my F350. The Reese felt very light when I unpacked it. The parts are all made in China or Mexico. Assembly and installation took 25 min. The release mechanism feels cheap. It is difficult to make sure the pin is fully seated in the hitch. 2x it looked seated and I was able to install the locking pin and the trailer came out of the hitch! I always do a test pull in forward and reverse before pulling out onto the road. First time it came out I caught it on the test pull, second time it looked good w the test pull but 30' down the driveway it came out and crushed my bedside and tailgate. I would recommend the B &W or Curt before buying the more expensive but inferior Reese. 397426

This is a very handy piece of equipment that i.use but normally use the 5th wheel hitch. When I pull a gooseneck I remove the 5th wheel hitch and install the gooseneck hitch within minutes..

Ask the Experts about this Reese Gooseneck
Do you have a question about this Gooseneck?


  • 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....

  • 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.

  • 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....

  • Goose Neck 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 Mega Cab with Towing Prep Package.
  • The Reese Replacement Ball for Reese Elite Series Gooseneck Hitches # RP19311 that you referenced will fit in your 2015 Ram 2500 with factory tow prep package. 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 2500 with Hitch Prep

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Safety Chain Loop Recommendation for Gooseneck Hitch on a 2014 Ram 3500 with Hitch Prep
  • I spoke with my contact at Cequent about the Elite Gooseneck Safety Chain Loops # RP58468. 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. I pulled both of these kits...

  • High Capacity Fifth Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500
  • We have some high capacity hitch setup for you to consider, but none are more than 30k. Which for most trucks is more than adequate. That being said we are aware of the absurdly high towing capacity your 2016 Ram 3500 would have if it was a dually and a diesel and a long bed. I just checked the Ram page it lists a whopping 31,200 lb capacity for this vehicle configuration. The highest rated fifth wheel hitch we have to fit your 2016 Ram 3500 without the factory rail kit would be the...

  • 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...

  • Safety Chain Loops Compatible with Pucks of Factory 5th Wheel Prep Package in 2014 Ram
  • The safety chain loops included with the Reese # RP30140 are available without the ball, the bag and the plug cover as part # RP30145. 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.

  • Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit For 2015 Dodge Ram 3500 With Factory Rails Installed
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese about your 2015 Dodge Ram 3500 with the factory rail kit. They told me if you have the rail kit installed, the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit, part # RP30140, will work well for you. This kit consists of the 2-5/16 inch pop-in ball, 2 safety-chain hookups, a storage bag and a rubber cover to help keep dirt out of the hitch ball hole when the ball is removed.

  • Safety Chain Recommendation for Use with Reese Elite Series Ball Kit part # RP30140
  • The Fulton Safety Chains part # FCHA0070324 would be a great option for safety chains to use with the Reese Elite Series Ball Kit part # RP30140. These chains are 42 inches in length and will fit the chain loops of the # RP30140.

  • 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.

  • Gooseneck Balls for a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Gooseneck Package
  • I believe you are looking for what is called an offset ball. There are currently only straight, regular balls for the 2014 Ram 2500 short bed with factory gooseneck package. You could use # C60601 or # RP30140. An offset ball will not offer all that much more additional clearance since they only move the pivot point back a maximum of 5 inches. In most cases this isn't enough if clearance is already an issue when making tight turns.

  • Will Curt Spyder Gooseneck Hitch Fit Reese Adapter for 2014 Ram with OEM 5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The Curt Spyder gooseneck trailer hitch # 16085 will fit in the inner set of slots on the Reese adapter # RP30154 for the 2014 Ram with OEM prep package. But it will be much easier, less expensive, and you will not have to use an adapter in another adapter to just use the proper ball to fit the OEM prep package on your Ram. The ball is # RP19311. For a kit that includes the ball, safety chain loops, cap, and storage bag use # RP30140.

  • Are Safety Chains Required When Using the Andersen Ultimate Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Adapter # AM3225
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese and they have performed a test fit and the Safety Chain, # FCHA0070324, will work with the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit, # RP30140. Part # FCHA0070324 is for one 42 inch safety chain so if you need two you will want to order a quantity of two. Neither manufacture has done testing to determine if the Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains, # RM3230, and the Reese safety chain loops can be used together. Just something that you may want to consider,...

  • Gooseneck Hitch for 2014 Ram 2500 Long Bed
  • If your Ram has the factory tow/ prep package, it'll have pucks in the truck bed as shown in the provided photo. If you have the prep package, you can use the Reese # RP30140 gooseneck ball. The # RP30137 kit you mentioned is for the Ford tow/prep package, and wouldn't work for your truck. If you don't have the tow/prep package, you can use the Draw-Tite # 9467. If you don't already have a 7-way trailer connector installed in your truck bed, you can install one using part # 41157.

The adapter has a 12 - 16 inch height adjustment and has an offset of 7-1/2 inches. It does come with a 2-year limited warranty, but keep in mind that adapters like...
