Gen-Y Hitch Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters - 325-GH-8045 Review


Today we're going to take a look at the Gen-Y hitch shock-absorbing fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter pin box for the Lippert 1621 and 1621 HD pin boxes. Now this has an 18,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter box will let you tow your fifth wheel trailer with your gooseneck hitch. The fifth wheel pin box will replace the Lippert 1621 and the 1621 HD factory pin box that's on your trailer, and the coupler portion right here is what will attach to your trucks gooseneck hitch ball. Also, when you're not towing your fifth wheel trailer, it leaves your truck bed free of any big bulky fifth wheel hitch.Now this is a shock absorbing design, ensures a nice smooth, steady ride. The technology right up here functions just like a torsion axle to limit the transfer of your road shock from your trailer to your truck and vice versa.

Does reduce setting, chucking and rough four and a half motion, and that limits the bounce and the jarring up and down motion. There's no airbags to maintain and fewer moving parts to repair or replace them with other shock-absorbing solutions.Also on this, let me just point out, they do offer a built in mechanical tongue weight scale right here, and that'll give you balanced safe loading. This tongue weight scale is built to help you balance your trailer. The meter will let you know if your load needs to be adjusted before your tow, and there's a little white indicator there, and there's three marks on it. The bottom mark would be zero, what it's showing now, meaning there's zero tongue weight, the top mark would be 3500 pounds, and then they even have a mark right in the middle, so that'll give you a guideline of immediately when you hook up, it'll show what your tongue weight is.This is a heavy duty steel construction, has a nice powder coat finish, resists wear and corrosion.

It has a simple bolt on installation. It matches the same bolt pattern as your Lippert 1621 or 1621 HD pin box, and it mounts with the existing bolts.This part as made in the USA. Towing capacity, again, is 18,000 pounds. Pin weight capacity is 3500 pounds, and it is designed to fit the gooseneck ball size or diameter of two and five sixteenths.But that should do it for the review on the Gen-Y hitch shock-absorbing fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapter pin box for the Lippert 1621 and 1621 HD pin boxes.
