  • Is Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitch Compatible with OEM Puck System on a 2020 GMC Sierra 2500
  • The Reese Elite Series 5th wheel hitches, like part # RP30142, are designed to fit the Elite Series underbed rails that you mentioned installing on your 2016. Since it sounds like your 2020 GMC Sierra 2500 has the OEM pucks you will need to swap out your 5th wheel hitch entirely because the puck dimensions won't match up with the Reese Elite 5th wheel hitches. The Demco Adapter Rails # DM6333 that you referenced will fit the pucks on the 2020 Sierra 2500 (whether you have a long or short...

  • Recommended Hitch and Adapters for Ram OEM Puck System on Short and Long Bed Trucks
  • The Ram Puck System is identical in the 6-1/2 foot bed and the 8 foot bed. If you already have a 5th wheel hitch with industry standard base rail compatibility, then I recommend the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6099 or the Reese # RP30154.

  • Will Two 12V Batteries be Enough to Power the 3000W Go Power Inverter # 34275013 for a Short Time
  • You can use two 12V batteries to power the Go Power Inverter # 34275013 but that all depends on what size 12V batteries you plan on using what "short periods of use" means. I reached out to my contact at Go Power and he said that if you are using deep cycle batteries and the load is not too excessive then you should be fine. For example, if you were trying to pull the full 3000 Watts out of the inverter that would be about 26 Amps AC or 260 Amps DC. If you were to run this for a half...

  • Difference Between Replacement Slide Gear Motor Assemblies # LC386322 and # LC387738
  • The physical difference is that the # LC386322 has a connector on it and the part # LC387738 has two blunt cut wires that would need to be spliced. They are the same thing aside from that. One is just intended for the Lippert brand and the other Power Gear but both are made by same parent company Lippert.

  • Replacement Shank for Blue Ox Aventa LX 7445 Tow Bar
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox regarding your Aventa LX 7445 Tow Bar and the Short Hitch Connector Assembly # BX84-0051 that you mentioned. She stated that this assembly is technically compatible and will work with your tow bar, but it will reduce its capacity to 6,500 pounds. Since your Blue Ox Aventa LX 7445 is rated at 10,000 pounds, a better option is with the Standard 2" Hitch Connector Assembly # 84-0186.

  • How To Install a 7-Way Trailer Wiring Harness On a 2019 Subaru Ascent
  • There are two different 7-way trailer wiring harnesses for a 2019 Subaru Ascent dependent on whether or not you have the factory tow package.

  • How to Determine Correct Lippert Torsion Axle Lift Kit for R-Pod With 3,500 lb Axle
  • Most R-Pods are going to have a torsion axle, and since yours is a 3,500 lb axle from Lippert that means you will have either a diamond torsion axle or a square torsion axle. To determine which axle you have - and thus which lift kit you need - take a look at the accompanying photo a customer sent in. This was from installing a lift kit on a diamond torsion axle, which will be oriented under the trailer in the shape of a diamond, as per the name of the axle. Otherwise the axle will be oriented...

  • Replacement Pitch Arm Assembly for Solera 69 Flat Awning Support Arm

This is just the pitch arm part of the entire arm assembly, the Solera 69" Standard Flat Awning Support Arm # LC281154 so you do need to be sure this is the arm assembly you do have, and if so the pitch arm I referenced is the correct replacement....

  • Picking Out Foot Pads for Jayco Precept 2015 35UP w/ Power Gear Leveling System
  • Measure the diameter of the feet of your Power Gear setup and we'll be able to determine if the # SP64FR4 is a fit. This part number is for 10 inch diameter feet which is most likely what you have. If you had 9 inch diameter feet instead you'd want the # SP54FR4, 7 inch # SP24FR4 11-1/2 inch or 12 inch part # SP84FR74, 8 inch # SP34FR4 etc. I attached a page to see all the options we have since there are quite a few.

  • Crossbar System for Retrax XR Tonneau Cover on 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor
  • That's an excellent question and there is a solution, which is to use a different kit with longer bars than the 60" Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers # Y00422-482104. Since the Retrax XR tonneau covers that fit your 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor are about 63" apart at the rails I recommend using 70" bars, and there are two kits you can use: - Yakima CoreBar Crossbar System for Retrax XR Series Tonneau Covers - Steel - 70" Long # Y00423-482104 - Yakima JetStream...

  • Lightweight 5th Wheel Rail Adapter for Ford Puck System
  • The Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # DM6175 weighs approximately 99 lbs. This adapter will fit into the factory puck system on Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks from 2011 - 2018. It will then allow for 5th wheel hitches that have above bed industry standard rails (ISR) to be used with the factory puck system. For a lightweight alternative that has the same function as the above adapter, I recommend using the Reese 5th Wheel Rail Adapter part # RP30156 which weighs in at around 55 lbs and is...

  • Using Go Power Automatic Transfer Switch to Switch Between Shore Power and Solar Power
  • The Go Power Automatic Transfer Switch # 34264403 that you referenced is a good way to automatically switch between shore power (when available) and an inverter that's being powered by solar charged batteries. It is always going to use shore power if it's present, and as long as the inverter is on, it will automatically switch to it once shore power is disconnected. For this type of setup, starting at the roof, you will of course first need the solar panels like the 200 watt # 34272628....
