Size of Nut to Remove Shims on Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter  


What is the size of the nut that you have to remove on the RAM version in order to remove shims? This is for a 2022 RAM 3500. In addition, if the handle turns too easy freely moves, should we add a shim to that handle?


Expert Reply:

To add/remove a shim on the Demco 5th Wheel Rail Adapter # DM6099 for your 2022 Ram 3500 you'll need to remove the 3/4" nut on the top as well as the four 3/8" bolts that help to hold the shims in place.

If you removed a shim but you think the handle turns a little too easily for your liking then you can add the shim back in place but I wouldn't add than the 2 that it would already have. Keep in mind that the handle will be held in place with a quick release pin so once you have the adapter installed that handle shouldn't be moving anyways.
