Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 - Curt

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, we're gonna be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Curt double-lock, flip and store, underbed gooseneck hitch. Part number C607-604.Here's what your hitch looks like when it's installed. What's gonna set this apart from other hitches, is it has a dual-locking pin. Another thing that's gonna set it apart, is this rod, the handle for your locking pin, can be put on the passenger's side or the driver's side. This hitch is gonna have a nice powder-coat finish, to resist corrosion and rust.Another great feature about this hitch, is you can have full bed access, whenever you're not using your hitch ball. You can see the grooves in the side here, there's a pin down inside.

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the gooseneck hitch plate with the 2 5/16 standard ball and the two D-rings. Now this gooseneck hitch plate is an all-steel assembly that'll bolt to your truck frame and body. Now if you have a structural steel bed, you can also weld this hitch plate to the bed floor.Gooseneck hitches will allow you to add extra towing capacity to your truck by transferring part of the load to the front axle. And allows your truck to tow greater weight with a better turning radius. It's ideal for towing horse trailers, utility trailers, RVs, toy-haulers and lawn care trailers.It has a nice black powder coat finish for corrosion resistance. It comes with this 2 5/16 diameter hitch ball and the two D-rings.

Draw-Tite Gooseneck 8339-4456 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Draw-Tite Fold Down Gooseneck trailer hitch with the custom installation kit. This is a custom fit part that is designed to fit the 2011 and newer Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks without the factory rail kit. And on a custom fit part I always like to recommend for you to 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 a heavy-duty above bed hitch, that'll let you tow your Gooseneck trailer. It does use a fold down ball design to provide full truck bed access of your truck bed. Basically if you just pull up on the door right here, near the hitch ball, pivot the ball down, close the door over the folded ball, you have full truck bed access when you're not towing.The ring they use on this door is a nice over size ring so it does let raise or lower it even if you're wearing thick work gloves. If you're gonna go tow the Gooseneck, then you just pull open the door again, the ball pops open, position the ball upright, fold the door all the way down, and that'll secure the ball in place for towing.I wanted to show you on the side here, it might be hard to see that right here theirs a grease inaudible 00:01:07 that's built into the hitch ball so it makes it easily accessible on the side of the ball to be able to pump grease in there and lubricate the hitch ball.The balls a heat treated, chrome hitch ball.

  • Recommended Best Truck For Towing 20,000-Lb Gooseneck Trailer
  • When asked for our recommendation about trucks that are towing fifth wheel or gooseneck trailers, most of the time we will recommend 1-ton trucks with an 8-ft bed and a diesel engine. The truck I recommend is the Ram 3500 Dually Tradesman with a 6.7 Cummins diesel and a 4.10 axle ratio. The towing capacity for this truck is 31,210 lbs. With a 3.73 axle ratio the towing capacity is 25,910 lbs. So if you plan on towing anything bigger than the trailer you are pulling I would go with...

  • Installation of the Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch, part # 9464-35, will require using a hole saw to drill into the bed of your Dodge Ram pickup. You will need to measure, mark, and drill a quarter inch hole, then use a hole saw to cut the hole out for the gooseneck ball. If you have a 6 foot bed, you will measure 44 inches from the rear edge of the truck bed and centered between the wheel wells. If you have an 8 foot bed, you will measure 46 inches from the rear edge...

  • Yes, there are fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapters and we do carry them.

Gooseneck hitches are usually rated to haul 25,000 to 30,000 pounds, some fifth-wheel hitches are capable of doing the same, but other fifth-wheel hitches are rated lower.

  • What Underbed Support Is Needed For Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate, # C65500, To Meet Maximum GTW Rating
  • I called Curt on the Curt Gooseneck Flat Plate, # C65500, and they said that the plate can be installed to the frame rails with a minimum of six 1/2 inch Grade 5 mounting bolts, but that would not allow the plate to meet the 30,000 lbs. GTW rating. To be able to meet the 30,000 lbs. GTW rating you will have to install the Curt flat plate with the Curt Universal Gooseneck Ball Rail Kit, # C61502. This kit will install under the bed to the frame rails and give the extra reinforcement that...

  • Tips for Removing Stuck Gooseneck Hitch Ball
  • The first thing you will need to do is apply liberal amounts of spray lubricant to all of the moving parts that seem stuck. Sometimes it helps to apply some, wait an hour or so and apply more and then do whatever it takes to pry the ball out. If you can access the bottom of the hitch from underneath the truck bed try hitting it with lubricant from that angle as well. You may also be able to get a decent amount of force applied from here as well to get the hitch out. The more lube...

  • 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.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Ford F150 Supercrew with 5.5 Ft Bed
  • I spoke with my contact at B&W and the Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Custom Installation Kit, # BWGNRK1104, is compatible with your 2014 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2 ft bed. Please keep in mind that since you have the 5-1/2 ft bed, you will have limited turning clearance and it is recommended to use the 4 Inch Offset Ball, # BWGNXA4085, to increase your turning clearance. I have attached a couple of videos which may be helpful.

  • Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for Cab and Chassis Truck

  • Do Curt Gooseneck Hitches # C607-604 and # C611-624 Both Fit 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
