  • Comparing The Reese 16K To The B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Hitch
  • When comparing the Reese Titan 16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Serrated Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # RP30866 to the B&W Patriot 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Dual Jaw - 16,000 lbs # BWRVK3200, I would go with the Reese Titan 16 personally. This would be my choice based on a couple of key features. It has the dual locking jaw with serrated design which make the connection to the king pin even more secure due to the geared teeth so you have an even hold to minimize jarring and chucking. The wider...

  • Will Reese Goose Box Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter part # RP94622 Fit Montana 3911
  • If your fifth wheel trailer has a Mor/Ryde originally designed to replace a Lippert 1621 the Reese Goose Box part # RP94622 that you referenced would fit and would then work well with your B and W Turnoverball gooseneck hitch part # BWGNRK1111.

  • Curt Hitch Compared to Reese 16k Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation
  • I personally like Reese fifth wheel hitches more than the Reese hitches. The only thing the Curt hitches really have going for them is they have higher capacities. Reason I like Reese more is that we see more Curt hitches come back with issues here and there than the Reese hitches we sell more of. The head material of the Curt hitches seems to be softer and when you combine that with the wider funnel of them they tend to get chewed up easier. Also we get more question that deal with...

  • Where to Apply Lithium Grease to Reese Revolution Pin Box
  • I found the picture you are referencing about the lithium grease on the Sidewinder/Reese Revolution. The arm that's in the picture can be removed from the turret as it's basically a friction fit. What you would want to do is move it side to side by hand and pull down till you get it to start to pull apart. From there you can apply lithium grease to the Sidewinder. For that we have the part # L11350.

  • Will the Reese Elite Series 5th Wheel Adapter RP30156 be Compatible with 12 yr old 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for Standard 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP30156 allows 5th wheel hitches that fit in standard base rails to be compatible with the factory puck system you have in your 2012 Ford F-250 or F-350 Super Duty Pickup. Since the Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Square Tube Slider # RP30051 fits standard 5th wheel base rails these two items will be compatible even if your 5th wheel hitch was made in 2005.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2011 Ford F-250 Towing Trailer With Revolution Pin Box
  • If you want to install above bed rails in your 2011 F-250 truck bed I recommend the Reese Titan Hitch # RP30866 and the custom rail kit # RP50026-58. Using a custom rail kit reduces the installation time by 50 percent. If you are wanting to install under bed rails I recommend part # RP30126. The under bed system gives you the 4 pucks in the bed and when the hitch is removed you have full bed access. The fifth wheel hitch I recommend that will work with the # RP30126 pucks is part #...

It has the ability to increase your power by up to 110 HP and up to 250 Torque foot lbs.

  • New Electric Brakes on 5th Wheel Trailer Not Working Properly
  • I first recommend looking at how you are testing the new brakes on your fifth wheel trailer. If you have a proportional brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885, stepping on the brake pedal without the vehicle or trailer in motion is not going to send enough power pack to actually activate the brakes. You will want to make sure you are using the manual override lever on the controller when testing in this manner. Next I recommend checking to make sure the brake assemblies...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier on a 2016 Ford F-250s Truck Cap
  • To put a kayak carrier on your truck cap you'll first need a roof rack system with crossbars. The TracRac CapRac # TA29200 is confirmed to work with your 2016 Ford F-250. The CapRac will be permanently installed onto the truck cap. You may wish to lay the kayak directly onto the crossbars and then fasten it down using ratchet straps like # EM34415. For a roof rack that's almost entirely removable from the truck cap we have the Thule Top Rack System # THTP54. These are tracks that...

  • Transmission Cooler for 2000 Ford F-250 Towing Heavy 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Any fluid leaking from a vehicle is a warning. Often this indicates excessive temperatures in your transmission. If your transmission is stressed to the point of leaking fluid this means that somewhere either a seal, hose or other fitting is being pushed past its limit. My first suggestion is that you try to find that leakage point so you can check whether you have a bad seal or fitting that can be replaced. Driving your truck, let alone towing a trailer with it, with an inadequate trans...

  • What Does Factory Installed Bed Mounts Mean On 2011 Ford F-250 With 6-3/4 Ft Bed
  • When a truck has the factory installed bed mounts, there will be what is called pucks in the bed of the truck. A fifth wheel hitch like part # PS30857 will either use a picture frame like part # RP30156 to give you attach points for the hitch, or you can use a hitch like part # BWRVK3370 that does not need a picture frame as it drops into the pucks in the truck bed. If your truck did not come with the factory kit, you will need to install either an under bed or above bed kit for...

  • Help Determine What Fifth Wheel Hitch Rails Were on 2006 Ford F-350 with Holes in Bed
  • Do the holes match what you see in the attached picture? Most likely they do as it sounds like you had a Reese Elite series fifth wheel hitch rail kit installed. If that was the case you'd need the rail kit part # RP30073 to replace what was there. Then you'd need the Elite hitch part # RP30142 for a stationary hitch or the # RP30144 for a slider hitch if you have short bed truck.

  • Does The Brake Magnet Wiring Matter Regarding Which Is Power And Which Is Ground?
  • On the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA, the brake magnet wires are interchangeable. As long as one goes to power and one goes to ground you are good to go. The only thing you need to be sure of is that you put the correct assembly on the proper side for them to function correctly. They are labeled, so that the left side (driver's side) and the right side (passenger side) are easy to recognize.

  • How to Choose Which Firestone Lift Spacers are Needed on Lifted 2012 Ford F-250
  • First of all if the truck has a body lift and not a suspension lift then you will not need spacers at all. If you do have a suspension lift on your 2012 Ford F-250 then to install the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2597 you need to choose the Lift Spacers that equal the amount of lift you have, or as close as possible. I've linked our selection for you.

  • Do all Underbed Gooseneck Hitches Simply Mount To The Frame And Not The Bed Of A 2011 Ford F-250?
  • Almost all gooseneck style hitches with an underbed mounting like you mention have no attachment point to the bed of the truck. They are mounted to the frame rails only. Some models have u-bolts that are spring loaded that require drilling into the bed so they look like attachment points when not in use, but they are not. Even a system like the Reese Elite Series Under-Bed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch for Ford Super Duty - 25,000 lbs # RP30138-26 that has the puck system doesn't technically...

  • Can the Single Function Air Spring Control Panel Work Without An Air Tank?
  • The Single Function Air Spring Control Panel - Pneumatic - Black Face # F2149 does not require an air tank for most applications however all applications require a compressor. If you don't already have a compressor, I recommend the Firestone Standard Duty Air Compressor - 130 psi # F9284. The air tanks simply allow the system to work faster and eases the motor function at any given time. If you determine you would like a tank, I recommend the Firestone Air Tank, 1 Gallon - (4) 1/4 NPT...

  • Will Furrion Digital Wireless Observation System Fit a 2017 Heartland Cyclone 3611
  • Observation system # FOS48TAPK-BL will work with your 2017 Heartland Cyclone but I was unable to find what kind of inputs are on that trailer. Since the system is wireless though it doesn't really matter. The camera itself just needs to be wired to a power source which should be contained within the factory camera prep system. The monitor that is included plugs into a 12 volt power outlet so really you would not be using a whole lot of the camera prep system on the trailer.

  • High Capacity Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2008 Ford F-250 for Heavy Boat Trailer
  • For a trailer hitch with more towing capacity than you'd need the Curt hitch part # C15810 would be an excellent option. This hitch as towing capacities of 20,000 lbs which would work well for you. As long as you are sure you under the truck's capacity still this would allow you to tow your trailer. You should note that this is a 2-1/2 inch hitch so you may need a compatible ball mount like with part # C45456 which also has a 20k capacity. For a hitch ball you'd then want the part...

This system replaces the bump stops on your truck and requires no drilling for installation. This is designed to work with a suspension system that is in good working order, and will not increase the load-carrying capacity of your truck. For a suspension system that uses air bags I recommend using Firestone Air helper Springs like part # F2550. These springs...

  • We can help you set up a fifth-wheel hitch on your 2006 Ford F-350 with the Curt Double Lock, # C60720. You would need to use the Curt X5 Fifth Wheel Base Rails Adapter, # C16210. You have a plethora of fifth-wheel hitches to choose from when using this adapter, as it is compatible with Curt, B&W, Demco Hijacker Premier Series, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above-bed fifth wheels. The most popular of those with a 20,000 lb gross towing weight is the Reese Select...

  • Will Demco 5th Adapter for B&W Turnoverball Gooseneck Hitch Fit with Husky 5th Wheel Hitch
  • The Curt X5 Adapter # 16310 does have an issue with some fifth wheel hitches because of the cross member making contact with the center of the adapter. The X5 is raised slightly in the middle that causes this. I verified with Demco that their adapter for B&W Turnoverball gooseneck hitches, part # DM6140, will work with your Husky hitch as long as it fits into industry standard rails.

For a custom rail kit confirmed as a fit for your 2007 Ford F-250 we then have the part # BWRVK2400 which would work well.

For the 235/80-16 by Lionshead you'd want then the part # LHWL401. If your RV or trailer has a flat tire, call the help line and a technician will come change the flat for you. You can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year from anywhere in the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico. What's...

  • Wheel is Rated for a Lower psi Than New Tires
  • As long as the tires that you bought are confirmed to fit the wheels that you have then all you will need to do is upgrade your valve stem. Since your wheel has a psi rating of 80 then that means it has a rubber valve stem, like part # AM20904. Wheels usually come with a valve stem that complements the psi rating of the tire that comes on it. If your original tires only had a psi rating of 80 (or under 80) then the valve stem that came with it would have reflected that. For a valve...

  • For 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit # RP50082-58 the spacer blocks that fit between the bed and bottoms of the rails can be more critical on some trucks depending on the corrugation configuration of the truck bed. Basically if where the bolts go on the rails there is the low part of the bed corrugation then a spacer will need to be used. It isn't just to prevent damage to the bed but to increase the amount of surface contact between the rail and the bed. The fewer gaps there are...

  • How to Find Pin Weight of a Gooseneck Trailer
  • I don't think the Sherline Tongue Weight Scale # 5780 would work well for a gooseneck trailer. For one it only goes up to 2,000 pounds which isn't going to be enough for a lot of goosenecks. You would also have to find a way to get the trailer on the scale with it sitting level which doesn't seem very safe. The best way to determine the pin weight of a gooseneck is to weigh your truck on a commercial scale once with the trailer connected and once without. Then subtract the difference...

  • Which Fifth-Wheel Hitch to use with a Reese Revolution Pin Box on a 2014 F-350 6-3/4 Foot Bed?
  • The fifth-wheel hitch I recommend you install in your 2014 Ford F-350 is the Reese Elite Series, # RP30142. This is a fixed-mount hitch which mounts into your 2014 Ford F-350's existing factory rails via the pucks in your truck's bed. Normally your short bed F-350 would need a sliding fifth-wheel, but the Revolution pin box is a Sidewinder, so a slider is not necessary.

  • The Torklift Steps like the part # TLA8004 can be made to replace your Flexco steps. The mounting base dimensions are 27-7/16 inches wide. In a worst case scenario some of the mounting brackets may need to be moved around, but the steps themselves will fit in the area you have now. You may also want the vertical stud adapter bracket part # TLA8022. You are most likely going to have to remove your current brackets to make room for the steps but with these brackets you can make it work.

Even if the ball mount you are using has a larger hole you can still use the bracket with a ball that has a 1 inch diameter shank, such as # SC30-C, by using a special bushing, # F-2, which will reduce a 1-1/4 inch ball hole down to a 1 inch.

  • Do Timbren Suspension Enhancement Springs Affect Unloaded Ride Quality
  • We have found that it varies a little bit between vehicles. For some vehicles the unloaded ride quality is totally unaffected with the Timbrens. Typically this is on higher capacity vehicles where the suspension is already pretty stiff and doesn't move much when unloaded. On lighter duty vehicles where the suspension moves quite a bit some people have reported an increase in harshness from the Timbrens. For your 2012 Ford F-250 you probably wouldn't feel them.

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for 2005 Ford F-250 with Firestone Air Bag Kit
  • We checked with Firestone and the part # F2400 is listed as being compatible with fifth wheel rail kits. What you need though is a universal rail kit like the part # RP30035 which uses L-brackets that mount around the air spring brackets. I attached an install video for it.

  • Will 2008 Ford F-350 Integrated Brake Controller Work with Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • The integrated brake controller of a 2008 Ford truck is not compatible with electric over hydraulic brakes. Whether or not we have an adapter that would allow it to work really depends on the actuator the trailer has. Not all actuators have adapters available like the # HBA-CAM which is designed to work with Hydrastar actuators. Now if you installed a P2 part # 90885 you would be totally fine regardless of the actuator you have. To install it in your truck would require the install adapter...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Rails And Brackets For 2011 Ford F-350 Dually
  • For your 2011 Ford F-350 Dually, I recommend the custom install kit from Reese. There are two options for this, with the rails being either 43 inches long or 48 inches long. The longer rails make the installation easier, but either rail kit will function great once installed and they use the same frame holes for the bracket installation. For the 43 inch rails, I recommend the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # RP50026-58. For...

  • Can AirLift Air Bags and a B&W Turnover Ball Gooseneck Hitch be Installed on a 2005 Ford F-250

But if you have a different AirLift kit then they are not compatible with each other.

  • Will Reese Goose Box Fifth Wheel Adapter Fit Truck with Flat Bed

At 4 inches up from the very bottom where the Goosebox clamps around the gooseneck ball, the clamp mechanism is 7-1/2 inches at its widest point. You can compare that measurement to your setup to see if it would clear. Most cases it will.

So it will fit into a 2-1/2-inch hitch but it then reduces the available opening on the other end to 2-inches. For a 24-inch application the extension will need to use the rear hitch pin hole for installation. At that length it has a 6K GTW rating....

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake Circuit Activating When Turn Signal is Engaged
  • If activating one function on your 7-way trailer connector causes another circuit to activate this usually means there is a corrosion problem in the truck 7-way socket. Since the issue did not occur with the other truck this suggests the problem is on the F-350 rather than on the trailer. Corrosion in vehicle or trailer wiring can occur inside the connectors, where it is very hard to spot, as water slowly migrates inside them and becomes trapped. This can lead to corrosion that can cause...
