Video Transcript for Reese Elite Series Pop In Ball Kit Installation - 2017 Ram 2500

Today on our 2017 Ram 2500, we're going to be test fitting the Reese Elite Series pop in ball kit for the Ram under bed goose neck hitch. Part number is RP30140. Now, the ball itself is 2 5/16 of an inch, which is pretty standard for your goose neck balls. It offers a weight capacity of 30,000 pounds. Of course, you don't want to exceed the carrying capacity of your truck, so check the owner's manual and just go off whatever its tow rating is. Your safety chain connection points will come out just as easy. Lift the keeper, rotate and remove.

Now, the Reese Elite goose neck kit is going to come in a nice, convenient carrying case. We'll be able to tuck this under the seat of the truck or somewhere else convenient. When ready to use it, we'll just open up our bag. You can see it comes with the rubber cap if you didn't keep the one that came with your goose neck. We can put that right down over top.

We're also going to have two safety chain connection points, and of course our goose neck ball, which has the quick release there for the balls, really nice and tidy kit. We'll be able to store it just about anywhere in the truck, for it to be readily available for us anytime we need it. Now, we can take a look at how we put these in the prep package. On the factory prep package, the ball of course is going to go in the center hole. We pull up on the T handle and rotate it. That allows our balls to both be pushed in.

That'll slide right down and rotate that. We're going to see it's locked in position. Now, this has a nice, snug fit. There's not a lot of forward and back and side to side movement, which is going to help out with reducing noise and anything like that. Now, the safety chain connection point, you're just going to lift up on the keepers.

Place it in. Rotate it in position and then we'll push those right back down. As you can see, that's going to keep those from turning too much. Also, gives us a nice, snug fit. Let's see here, we've got just a 3/8 tight safety chain connection point. It goes around pretty well, although the keeper won't fully latch on the outside, with this being a little bit thicker, so something you might just want to keep in mind. If you're using a smaller style connection, you can se also, a little big thick for it to be held in position. Now, when we're done using our goose neck connection points and safety chain points, the removal process is just as easy as installation. We'll lift up and rotate. We can remove that. Then we can use the Reese Elite Series cap to push down over it or of course you can return your factory plug in there. I really think that this cap's a little bit easier to use than the kind of twist lock style that originally came with the goose neck. Sometimes this can get hung up, where the rubber cap can pop right out for you. That will complete our look at the Reese Elite Series pop in ball kit for the Ram under bed goose neck hitch, part number RP30140 on our 2017 Ram 2500.

Looks good, however, it was made in China, something I didn't see on the website. Hope it lasts. 195353

So far so good. The only problem was finding safety chain hooks that fit the safety hookups. I gave up and used heavy duty d-rings instead.

2016 Dodge Ram Pickup

I recently purchased a 2016 Ram 3500 with 5th wheel tow package already present on truck. I wanted an additional goose neck product and looked at various suppliers online and found etrailer products offered for sale. After to speaking with Heather who answered all my questions as well as reviewed feedback from customers I chose to go with the Reese gooseneck kit. I received the product within the shipping date provided to me and I went out to install it. It took me all of 3 mins to install with no issues. I did my best to remove, shake and couldn't get them to budge. It took me a total of 5 mins to remove the parts and storing them back under the rear seat. The parts fit perfect, look great as well as we're the cheapest price I could find. Their online video is all the install instructions you need! I will definitely use etrailer in the future. Thanks Heather! 296158

After a year, this product performs just fine. The only letdown is the same one that presented itself when new...the chain loops don't accommodate the safety chains found on most gooseneck trailers. If you use a couple of shackles like I did, the problem is solved. Just make sure to use shackles rated to carry the weight and load of your entire trailer. 763037

Have used this product for about a year, and over 4500 miles. Haven’t had any issues with fitment or function. Grease the ball when you use it and you will get a long life out of it. This has been exclusively used in a 2017 Ram 2500. 737866

I would strongly suggest you purchase something else. Like many others have posted about in reviews all over the internet, this design is indeed very poor. The ball works fine and I have no complaints there. The safety chain pucks however are another story. The top loop of the puck is too wide, The safety chain hook won't fit all the way into the puck loop and allow the hook keeper to close. I have 3 big name gooseneck trailers and a 5th wheel camper with a gooseneck conversion. None of the chains out of 4 trailers fit these. I even went to a local supplier to see if i could purchase new hook ends to make them work. No luck, nothing would work due to the dimension not working out one way or the other. I had to turn around and spend a significant amount of money and buy the Curt pucks. Surely by now Reese has received hundreds upon hundreds of complaints about this. Unbelievable that Reese did not update the design even before I purchased this a year ago. 616287

Fit Perfectly on my 2018 Ram 3500 HD. Great item - just as described at a portion of the cost from the OEM... Great purchasing experience - will definitely use again for any future trailer/hauling needs. 599110

It met all my expectations. The ball fits snuggly in the hitch. It came with a nice storage bag. 598689

Stong and heavy duty built to last. Everything came individually wrapped and in excellent condition. Course i did notice the standard problem with the handles too wide to handle any type of safty chain. Will be getting strong weight/shock load class D rings to attach the safty chains too. within these. The storage case comes in handy and fits snug with the 2.5 to 2 in factory reciver and a 7 in drop under the back passenger seat in the factory cubby. Would buy again if needed. 595675
