Should a Lube Plate be Used with a Sidewinder/Reese Revolution Pin Box


I have a 2015 Ford F350 with a Ford Accessories Reese 18K Elite 5th wheel hitch and a Reese Revolution pin box on my 5th Wheel. I am looking for a hitch lube plate vs. a hitch lube disk because the Reese Revolution pin box has the wedge that would interfere with the lube disk. Is the Fifth Wheel Lube Plate for Reese Titan 16 Code: 83003 large/wide enough for the 18K Elite hitch or does Reese make a separate Lube Plate for this hitch? Or can the 12inch lube disk Code: RP83004 be installed under the wedge on the pin box? Im assuming you cant just put the lube disk on the pin box on top of the wedge because the wedge would rip the first time it was attached to the hitch.

Expert Reply:

Actually you aren't supposed to use a lube plate with a Sidewinder/Reese Revolution Pin Box. Reese states that you should just grease the top of the hitch and you would be good to go.

The # 83003 is only designed to fit the Titan 16 hitches so it would not fit your Reese Elite 18k hitch.
