Does B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler Add Stress to Tube


Does this adapter put extra or different stresses on the trailers vertical tube that the adapter slides into? maybe fwd and aft flexing?


Expert Reply:

By nature, there is always going to be stress on the vertical tube when towing with a gooseneck but the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 is not going to cause additional stress that makes using your gooseneck unsafe.

You only need to make sure you follow the guidelines for installation (see accompanying cutout of part of the install manual) as well as abide by the coupler's capacities, which are 24,000 lbs towing and 6,000 lbs vertical load.

I have added a link to a video review of this coupler for you to check out as well.
