How Long Does Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ford Super Duty Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch Last


I have a 2012 ford f450, bought it used and came with this ball. How long should one of these last?


Expert Reply:

A gooseneck hitch ball such as # RP30137 for the Ford factory prep package should last the life of the truck if not longer. The ball is going to have a 30,000 pound rating so its tough. It might get some scratches or dings over time but unless metal is being scraped away, diminishing the diameter of the ball, there is nothing to worry about.

This ball is unique in that it does have that lever at the top to install/remove the ball and that mechanism could wear out with frequent use or if its dropped.
