Lube Plate for B and W Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch


I have a new B and W fifth wheel hitch with a 12 deck. Do I need a 10 or 12 lube plate for it? Also what lube do I need for the bushings that this head fits on? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The proper size Lube plate for use with the B and W Companion hitch is a 10 inch diameter lube plate.

We carry two lube plates this size. The Reese Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10 inch Diameter, item # RP83002, and the Curt 10 inch Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch Lube Plate, item # 16721, will both work with your Companion hitch nicely.

The only lubrication required is a light application of standard automotive chassis grease like # L11316 on the hitch jaws and the top surface of the hitch head if you didn't use a lube plate like mentioned.
