Does a Lube Plate Have to Be Used with Sidewinder Pin Box


can you use lube plate with sidewinder or do you have to grease the sked plate


Expert Reply:

A lube plate such as the Reese # RP83004 isn't necessary for a Reese Sidewinder because it won't be turning. Our representative at Reese stated you will only need to grease the king pin and wedge and you will be good to go.

Since they are not necessary, lube plates were not designed to work with Sidewinders.

With the Sidewinder part # RP61410 you wouldn't have to try and transfer over your lube plate at all from your slider hitch.
