Should the Rails of Curt R20 Slider Be Greased During Maintenance


Does the rails of an R20 5th wheel roller need to be greased?


Expert Reply:

Yes. Greasing the rails of the Curt Q20 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ R20 Slider - Dual Jaw - 20,000 lbs # C16536 should be done as a part of your regular maintenance routine; this will keep the hitch sliding freely.

For the # C16536 Q20 5th Wheel Hitch, Curt recommends using a quality white lithium grease like # L11354 for the 14 oz. Curt recommends applying a thin layer of grease of the rails that the roller rides against before each trip, and running the hitch fore and aft several times before locking it back in place. At the beginning of each trip, examine the grease on the rails and if it's become dirty or gritty, wipe off the excess and reapply.
