Recommended Replacement for Factory Gooseneck Hitch Ball in a 2017 Ram 2500

Question:

Hi, I have a 2017 Ram 2500 with the factory gooseneck puck system installed and I want to pull my 2011 open range 345rls 5th wheel with the Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection by Andersen. I am having trouble finding the correct drop in ball. the dealership said that all factory balls have been recalled and there is no suggested replacement. Can you help? Is there another ball available? Thank you for your help,

Expert Reply:

I have exactly what you need to use your Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch System (Gooseneck Version) in the bed of your 2017 Ram 2500. For this, I recommend the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for Ram Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch part # RP30140. This kit comes with a 2-5/16" hitch ball, two safety chain loops, and a handy storage bag. It will fit perfectly into the gooseneck cutout you have in your bed. There are currently no recalls on the Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit.

I have attached an install video for you as well.
