Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Ball - Gooseneck Hitch Ball - BWGNXA2005 Review

Today we're going to review part number, BWGNXA2005, this is the B and W replacement hitch ball for the B and W turnoverball on their gooseneck hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. The ball diameter on this is 2-5/6ths, it has a weight capacity of 30,000 pounds. This replacement hitch ball is only designed to fit on the B and W turnoverball gooseneck trailer hitch, part number BWGNRK1309, and that part number is designed for the Dodge Ram 1500 truck, starting in 2009. The reason this one will only work on that hitch is because the size of the shank, from the center of the locking pin hole to the center of the base is shorter than the standard size hitch ball that comes on all the other turnoverball gooseneck hitches. This is a square ball base, as you can see here, prevents the ball turning in the base during hook-up. It is made of a sturdy steel construction, it is made in USA. I do want to give you that dimension, so that if you're trying to match it, from the bottom of this square base, to the center of that locking pin hole, is 1 inches. This is called a turnoverball because basically you would drop the square base into the gooseneck hitch and then you would tow with this gooseneck ball, when you're done towing, you can unlock it.

Pull the pin out, turn this over, drop this ball down in the square opening and then this would stay under the bed of the truck and this would be flush with the truck bed, so it'll give you full access to your truck bed. As you can see, there's a little handle there to help you lower down and to pull it back up. That should do it for the review on part number BWGNXA2005, the B and W replacement hitch ball for the B and W turnover ball on their gooseneck hitch, part number BWGNRK1309. .

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This was my first order I placed with et etrailer. If one work could say it I guess it would perfect! I ordered on a Tuesday arrived on Thursday. I Placed the order got conformation and a name and contact to call if I had any issues, once it arrived I got another email letting me know if had been delivered. The installation video was perfect made it’s easy to install just followed the steps. When I need any trailer related items I will use them. As far as the B&W hitch i put it in a 2017 Ram 2500 with Ram boxes. The fit and quality of the hitch and design is what I have come to expect from B&W. I got this hitch to pull a gooseneck horse trailer. If your wondering if it will work with Ram Boxes it will.

Great product still love it works great with my Ram Boxes. No issues ever

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Received in terrible condition. One box was completely open at all borders and finish on hitch was chipped in multiple places. Product was shown as in stock when order was placed but wasn't shipped until the day AFTER it was supposed to be delivered. Two calls to etrailer told me it would be shipped prior to that date but obviously just trying to smooth over the situation. Installation was completed per instructions and watching etrailer [online] videos without issue. Only difficulty is torquing the bolts to final specs in tight spaces.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Installation was straight forward and it's well built. Works smoothly. etrailer was awesome as usual with shipping and service.
However.... ;) on the BWGNRK1400 for '73-'87 GM trucks, the predrilled holes in the hitch for the safety chain u-bolts are 6-1/4" each way from center of the ball. This places the matching holes you have to drill in the truck bed on the sloped edge of the ribs, not in the center of the valley as intended. The instructions read as if the holes are not pre-drilled but they are, so I contacted B&W and asked if I can drill new holes at 8-3/4" each way of the ball so that they center in the next valley and they said no, that will void the warranty. So I had to do some bodywork, cut, weld and grind to scallop the ribs around the anchors to they won't always be sticking up (defeating the flat floor intent of this hitch design). I saw guy on [online] noted this was an issue on his squarebody bed as well.
B&W needs to look at this dimension for future installations to help out the next guy.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Overall this Installation went as I anticipated, 4-5 hours; it's not for an unprepared amateur. I strongly recommend watching the Installation Video, but more importantly, disconnecting the wiring harness (from both sides, there's 3 connectors) that cross over the rear cross member above the Differential. Disconnecting the rear exhaust was a MUST DO for us (my son helped me) as is a second person. Patience was our friend during this entire Installation for both of us. The brake line that crosses over to the passenger side was of concern to me, and got in the way as well; in the end it is below this entire installation. However there is a Mount Block on the driverside that creates a problemwith getting one bolt into place; a "Fishing Spring" (spring wire that wraps around the threads with long tail to fish/thread/pull thru the hole) would have helped to get this into place. (SEE PICTURE) Once in place the head is able to be held with a narrow spanked wrench while tightening. The rear center bolt is a HUGE challenge to reach once everything is in place and you're torquing things to spec.I had to purchase a "3/4" Crowsfoot" to get this and some of the others because of things blocking access with a socket (not talked about in the video or Installation Video). Once everything is in place and Reconnecting electrical plugs we found that there was enough gap/spacebehind the Kit Rear Cross Bar, over the vehicle rear cross member, to run the driver side electrical. Pay attention to have the "male" plug facing inboard to give you enough slack to reach the passenger side plug. A couple of zip-ties were needed to keep this inplace. See picture for how I routed this and the vent tube to avoid the heatshield.

I've got a 26 foot Keystone Cougar 5th wheel RV Trailer that I be using this, along with an Andersen 3217 hitch. With this B&W Hitch I don't have the 5th wheel Rails across the bed full-time anymore of my 2022 Ram 1500DT 4x4.

1997 ford f250
Works great, except the
turnover part, the ball hits the sway bar. Install was not as easy as stated but that's probably because the kit was more of a universal fit for my truck and I had to do a lot of drilling.


Comments
I still have no complaints about the work ethics of this setup.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Worked out … Perfect upgrade to the factory system. I hated having to remove , and place the covers in the bed. Now that the safety chains are closer to the center I can load boards and stuff that I don’t want in the trailer in the bed without having to rearrange everything. Only thing is the safety chain hoops are little thicker than the bed ribs and stick up. So it’s not totally flat..



by:

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This definitely is not a plug and play mechanism.
There is interference with the lever to unlock the ball and it hitting one of the bolts. I had to shave the bolt down to make it even slide by, in addition to this I had to cut about 1/4” off the mechanism lever for it to open all the way and not hit the bracket on the truck.

So in summary I had to make two cuts into the product to make it even function properly.
Poor quality control.

Great product. Direct fit so no need for modifications . The powder coated paint was in excellent condition. etrailer is an outstanding company. They keep you updated with your orders on a timely manner and the item was shipped and received within a few days before the delivery date. I will always continue to order any truck products from etrailer.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


This is a good kit. It took me about 3 hours to install, but I'm not the fastest.
You'll need a floor jack, rope, 4" hole saw, 1/2" and smaller drill bits, drill, torque wrench, sockets, wrenches, and a impact driver would help make the job faster. Use the floor jack in the truck bed with a rope to lift the heavy plate into place. See pictures.

1 year later of towing heavy equipment trailers and no problems at all! Still going strong.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


The installation videos are pretty accurate all around. Admittedly, this took me a little longer than the projected time frame, which I anticipated. Removing the driver side wheel well insert also made torquing the bolts there easier. Installation would likely be easier with a buddy, and reaching the torque specifications on several bolts was difficult with a standard 1/2 inch drive torque wrench, but it was all possible and fit 100% perfectly. Excellent conversion for my 3500 8foot bed. Next step is to get the matching fifth wheel hitch and purchase our dream RV.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Great sturdy product. My used 2012 F-250 came with one and now have one on my 2020 F-250, I think it's a better product than the Ford factor hitch. The installation video is VERY helpful.
Torquing the bolts requires a lot strength and flexibility due to the awkward positions you have to get in but it can be done with patience and prayer. Just plan on dropping the exhaust as shown in the video. As is consistently the case e-Trailer's customer service is second to none. We've already used it several times to pull at 16' gooseneck dump trailer and it works very well.

Great hitch, Ive purchased a second gooseneck trailer and have confidence when towing with this hitch.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


I put B&W turnoverball on a 2016 Ram 2500 crew cab short bed diesel,it has the factory prep puck. The change over was pretty simple. I used the same studs and nuts that came with puck goose ball. Tbe only hard part was trying to pry the 4" exhaust pipe down to slide the B&W plate into position. It took me about 2 hours to install by myself. I am going to use a 4" offset ball so I can use a reese goosebox hitch for my 5th wheel.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Very heavy duty goose ball. Love that the bed is mostly free of obstructions when not using the hitch.
Install took 2.5 hours for two of us and we did have access to a hydraulic lift. I couldn’t imagine trying this install alone or without the lift mostly because of how heavy this hitch is and the bolts/nuts you need to be able to reach and torque down. The worst part was drilling a 4” hole in the bed of a new truck, very nerve racking! I also like that this is custom fit for my truck and there were no hes that needed to be drilled in the frame, everything lined up perfectly.
The etrailer install video was key, very informative and so much better than the instructions that came with the hitch. Delivery of the hitch was fast, only 4 days after ordered.

Fit great, fairly easy install. Hardest part was figuring out which cross plate went where. Online video also helped with installation.

Review from a similar Turnoverball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Great fit. I installed this hitch in 4 hours with a little help from my wife. She helped me fish a chain through the hole in the bed and attach it to a floor jack. We use it in conjunction with an Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel hitch. I used it to pull a 16,000 lb fifth wheel trailer 100 miles with no issues. Everything is still tight.

  • Recommended Gooseneck Ball/Safety Chain Anchor for 2020 Ram 3500 With OEM Puck System
    Of the available options, I prefer the B&W # BWGNXA2062 which includes the compatible gooseneck ball as well as safety chain anchors that mount in the pucks. As opposed to the Curt and Reese offerings that use a latch mounted in the top of the ball that can be easily damaged, the B&W uses a latch that folds flat when the ball is locked into place so it's out of the way of he gooseneck coupler and won't get damaged. I've linked to an installation video that you might find helpful.
