Review of Curt Accessories and Parts C16570


Today we're going to review part number C16570. This is the Curt R24 Round Tube Slider for the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel trailer hitch. This does have 12 inches of travel. For demonstration purposes I do have the slider mounted on some base rails in the mounting brackets on the side. This is just for demonstration, to show you what it looks like in your vehicle. The base rails and the mounting brackets would be sold separately for your vehicle. This slider will help provide clearance which is required for your short bed pick-up to turn safely at slow speeds.

It will help prevent the trailer from hitting the cab of your pick-up during those sharp, slow speed turns. What happens is, this slider will move your hitch 12 inches to the rear or towards the tailgate and give you that extra clearance. This is designed to work with the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel trailer hitch which is rated at 24,000 lbs. It does slide smoothly on these rounded non-binding rods. This is designed for use on trucks with beds shorter than eight feet and it's not recommended for use on beds that are shorter than six feet.

This will mount to industry standard rails made by Curt, Draw Tite, Hidden Hitch, Pro Series, Reese or Valley. It is constructed of a durable carbide powder coated steel. The gross towing weight capacity on this is 24,000 lbs. Again, the amount of travel is 12 inches front to back. It does include the four pins and clips which are used to hold the slider to the rails. It also includes these four rubber sound dampeners.

Basically what those are used for, you can see it has a little square cut out in it. It's made to fit the tab on the slider so when you go to put these in you stick these up onto where the tab is so when you drop the tab into the rail it will give you this piece of rubber between the slider and the rail. Itll eliminate . It's a sound dampener so it helps eliminate any noises. I do just want to demonstrate how this slider would work. Right now it is in the locked towing position.

The way you can tell that is you'll see this green, let me just turn this a little bit. On the end of this rod you can see there's a green line that's showing. That means it's locked, ready to tow. What you want to do is if you pull into a campsite and you want to maneuver it into a maneuvering position you want to move it the 12 inches. You just pull the handle out and then turn it a little bit counter-clockwise and that'll move that tab towards the rear of the vehicle. What will happen is when this slides, you see these notches right here in the rods. When this slides and it hits those notches you can see that it's no longer, it's not showing red over here. It is showing green so it is locked in the maneuvering position. Now when you're done maneuvering and you want to go back into the towing position, same way. All you have to do is move your handle, pull it out and just move it towards the clockwise position, the opposite. Put said tab pointing that way. Again, it's showing red, which means it's unlocked. It's not showing green. If this goes back to the towing position you can see it hits those notches, slides the handle in automatically, no red showing. The green is showing so again you're locked in the towing position. Very simple arrangement. That should do it for the review on part number C16570, the Curt R24 Round Tube Slider for the Curt Q24 Fifth Wheel trailer hitch with the 12 inches of travel. .
