Is the Reese Elite 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30871 Available Without Wiring Harness As Ford Includes It?


I have a 2019 Ford F 450 with a Factory Prep package that includes a wiring harness outlet inside the bed. Is this hitch available with out the wiring kit since it would not be used?


Expert Reply:

The Reese Elite Series Pre-Assembled 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Wiring Harness - Single Jaw - 26,500 lbs # RP30871 is only available from the manufacturer with the harness in the kit. If you really don't want the harness, you can always give it to a friend or sell it as the compatibility of that harness is good with most models of trucks with the factory 7-way.

If you want a different trailer hitch due to that then I recommend the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Hitch for Ford Super Duty Prep Package - Dual Jaw - 25,000 lbs # BWRVK3305. This hitch is very well made and is the customer favorite. It will work with your prep package and the hitch includes some road dampening and is made in the USA.
