B&W 5th Wheel Companion Hitch Compatibility With Lube Plate


when I place a silicone 5th wheel pad on my king pin I cannot connect it to my hitch, it seems like the jaws wont fit. does this seem right. I really do not want to grease my pin box or plate,

Helpful Expert Reply:

That doesn't seem right that your king pin won't fit unless you are using the wrong lube plate. There are a couple lube plates we recommend for use with B&W Companion hitch like # BWRVK3500. The proper size lube plate for use with the B&W Companion hitch is a 10 inch diameter lube plate.

I recommend the Reese Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 inch Diameter, item # RP83002 or the Curt 10 inch Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate # 16721. We have confirmed either will both work well with your Companion hitch.
