Using Lube Plate with B and W Fifth Wheel Hitch

Question:

We have a B and W 16k fifth wheel hitch and looking for a lube plate. What is the difference in lube plates RP83004 and RP83001?

Expert Reply:

The only difference between the two lube plates is the color and their thickness. The # RP83004 is black in color, and is 1/8 of an inch, or .125 thick. The # RP83001 is white in color, and is a bit thicker at .192 of an inch, or just below 1/4 inch thick. I would recommend going with the thinner # RP83004, as using a plate that is too thick might make hitching more difficult. I spoke to my B and W contact who tells me that it is perfectly acceptable to use a lube plate if you wish.
