Video Transcript for Ultra-Fab Products Skid Wheels - Hitch Mount - UF48-979014 Review

Today, we're going to review part number UF48-979014. These are the Ultra-Fab rotating, hitch mounted skid wheels for RVs up to 30 feet long with the 2-1/2 inch square hitch tube. Now, this part includes everything shown right here on the table. The 2 swivel skid wheels, the 4 mounting plates, the 8 3/8th inch diameter bolts and the 8 lock nuts. Now, these unique casters will clamp on to the rear trailer hitch receiver of your RV, helps prevent tail dragging and digging in while you're backing up. The mounting brackets and hardware I mentioned are all included. These wheels do rotate full for a full range of motion.

They are a sturdy steel construction and they use extra-durable roller bearings which are very long-lasting. If you'll notice on the wheel itself, it has a 1/4 inch thick urethane layer outer edge on the each wheel. This provides an anti-skid barrier and it will ensure that the wheel last even longer by avoiding any metal degradation. Few specs on this. The application again is for low-profile motor homes that are up to 30 feet long and have a 2-1/2 inch x 2-1/2 inch square hitch tube on the rear.

The diameter on the wheels themselves are 4 inches and a quantity is for 2 of these. I do want to give you measurement on the mounting plate; 4-1/2 inches that way by up 3 and 7/8th inches that way. When you go to install these, what you'll do is take one of these mounting plates. Put it on top of the hitch tube and then take the other mounting plate, put it on the bottom, and then you'll take your caster assembly. That will attach to the bottom mounting plate, and then what you'll do is run your bolts up through the caster assembly, the mounting plate, and the top mounting plate, and you do that at all 4 corners and then use the lock nuts to tighten it down to specs, and then you'll just repeat that for the other one on the other side of the hitch tube. The other thing I do want to mention is that when you do, after you do install these, you do want to put some grease in these fittings right here. There is roller bearings on these casters, so you want to put some grease in it to help those rotate better and wear better.

That should do it for the review on part number UF48-979014, the Ultra-Fab rotating, hitch mounted skid wheels for RVs up to 30 feet long with 2-1/2 inch square hitch tube. .

Good product design, but the final product needs so QA. First off, the supplied bolts are to small for the size holes in the mounting brackets, (see pics). I had to install washers to ensure that the bolt heads were perpendicular to the mounting plates and not being drawn up at an angle that could ultimately result in metal fatigue when stressed under use. Bottom line; bolts need to be larger or the holes in the mounting brackets drilled smaller. Secondly, the grease fitting on one wheel pulled out when the grease gun was removed from the fitting. Insufficient thread length on the grease fitting or cross threaded, not sure which just yet. Attaboy on the packaging and shipping. Had it not been double boxed there would have been parts missing, as there was already a small hole in the inner box. Received the package sooner than expected. 251211

seems to do what I needed it to do, that is keep the back of my travel trailer from "bottoming out" when pulling into, or backing into areas with uneven grade. Pretty heavy duty, and easy to install (4 bolts per wheel). I think you should mount them back as far as possible on the frame for best results. The previous owner of my travel trailer had tore off the factory frame mounts that are supposed to keep the trailer from "bottoming out." I think this is a better solution than replacing the flimsy frame mounts that broke previously, and probably cheaper. Happy camping! 259467

I installed this item onto the trailer hitch of a 31 ft. class C motor home a few months ago and have driven in and out through many driveways since then with no issues. The other day, after driving out a frequently-traveled driveway, the center of one of the wheels broke; the rim now flops on the axle. Another reviewer had the same issue. A replacement wheel is available here as part # UF48-001011 but before buying one I'm going to research other skid wheel products. 545094


Comments
the inner wheel structure was crushed and failed. The other wheel broke too. A solid wheel would probably be better.

I'm giving a 5 star rating even though one of the products I ordered arrived damaged. Immediately upon receiving the skid wheels, I opened the package and found that one of the zerk grease fittings had snapped off at the base. I took a photo and called etrailer. They asked that I send the photo because it was an unusual situation. They responded immediately by email stating that a new pair of wheels was being sent along with a return label for the damaged set. Excellent service as always! 269714


Comments
I have been very happy with the skid wheels. I originally purchased them to help me get my 5th wheel up my very steep driveway. Im sure they would have helped but my driveway is so steep that I didnt try it because I was concerned that it would tork the frame too much. They have helped in several other situations such as entering the drives at some refueling stops. Easy install and good quality.

THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT TO KEEP THE TAIL OF YOUR MOTORHOME FROM BOTTOMING OUT ON THOSE LOW PARKING LOTS WHERE YOU HAVE TO GO OVER A HUMP IN THE CURB CUT!!! NO MORE CRUNCHING OF THE REAR DRAG BARS CARVING GROOVES INTO THE GROUND!! I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL SETS OF WHEELS THAT I PURCHASED FROM PLACES LIKE GRANGER AND McMASTER-CARR BUT NONE WHERE HEAVY DUTY ENOUGH TO STAND UP TO THE TASK. SEEMS THAT IF YOU WANT A CASTER THAT'S HEAVY ENOUGH TO TAKE THE WEIGHT YOU CAN ONLY BUY LARGER DIAMETER WHEELS. THESES GUYS WHERE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR THE TASK!! EVEN THE BOX THEY CAME IN WAS DESIGNED TO SHOW RV'ERS THAT THE COMPANY THAT MADE THEM SPELLS IT ALL OUT WITH THE GRAPHICS ON THE BOX. THESE GUYS ARE "EXTRA HEAVY DUTY" AND MADE TO DO THE JOB!!! INSTALLATION WAS A SNAP TOO!!! WITH AN AIR RATCHET I INSTALLED THEM IN LESS THEN 15 MINUTES, AN EASY TASK!! 37001

The Curt receiver hitch is a quality item. The installation took a little longer than expected to remove & re-install the enclosed underbelly on my 5th wheel trailer. The installation of the wheel kit was simple. 144920

!) Easy to install, Has not loosen up, so install once and forget it. 2) Works great protecting my Generator and back of the Motor Home. 3) Have not seen any damage or issue with hitting the ground. Come down to it, I would buy again! 719133

Like the reviews I read, every grease fitting broke off removing the grease gun. Got the grease in hopefully it will be sufficient. Also one of the swivels binds up even after greasing. They are on now, not taking them off to return. Just hope they don’t bind under weight when needed. 703896

these are good skid wheels for a light trailer they row up a gas station grade so you don't drag the back end. 697439

The wheel broke and rendered the part useless in the first week of usage. The wheel made contact (as designed) at about 1 mph and broke at the inner hub casting. It was installed on a new 25 foot motorhome. Save your money and look for something better! 692293

Installed on a 19 foot Vintage Cruiser travel trailer to attempt to protect the leveling jacks at the rear corners. Too often while backing into our driveway without assistance, if I go too far left or right, I hit the inclined lawn on either side. Because of the bumper shape/size, I had to buy 6 inch 3/8 -16 machine bolts to replace the ones with the kit. Thank you. 666266

Did not last! The inner wheel structure crushed and failed. I went to an all metal wheel. 664704

Received the box with the roller wheels in it, but the box was so damaged I did and inventory of the contents and found that on of the mounting plates was missing. I contacted etrailer right away on their customer service line. They apologized for the condition of the shipment and the missing mount plate. They got right on shipping me another mount plate, which delayed the installation of the wheel assemblies onto my Winnebago Aspect 30J motorhome. My suggestion is to pack the vendor box into another container with padding because of the weight of the container, the original vendor box cannot withstand the shipping handling that it goes through. Also as I was reviewing the hardware that was sent, I realized that due to the hole size in the mounting plates and the roller assemblies, that the bolts needed to have thick flat 3/8 inch washers to do a proper installation to prevent the bolts and nuts pulling through the mounting plate hole locations. Once I acquired the proper washers the installation was a simple task to accomplish, which I had completed in approximately 30 minutes. Haven't use the motorhome yet, but had a set of these roller wheels on another motorhome before this unit and they worked great. 644723

Fast and Accurate service as usual. Got it to replace a wheel that broke off. Does a good job of keeping the tail end of my class c camper from dragging. 644048

Wouldn’t be without them! They have already saved me hundreds if not thousands of dollars in damage to my RV. One of them actually broke on a defective culvert and had to be replaced which is very easy to do. 638975

Right before one year, the inside metal of the wheel rusts out leaving the orange portion flipping around with zero support. Very disappointed. 609840

They broke the first or second time I used them. The wheel rim was the problem. Not strong enough. Both wheels broke I assume going into a driveway of a gas station. Replaced with wider solid metal wheels with bearings on a shaft. No rims to break. 595356

After a year, the skid wheels have done their job and protected the back underside of our RV. There is no apparent wear and they function the same as new. I did clean them and re-grease them after 6 months but this is normal maintenance. They were easy to install. Good solid product. 588943

Installation was a little bit more difficult because bumper extended below the tow bar tube. Once installed worked OK. This allows me to get up my sloped driveway. 569061
