Review of Reese Gooseneck RP30140


Today we're going to review part number RP30140. This is a Reese Elite Series Pop-In Ball Kit for the Ram Factory Installed Under-Bed Gooseneck Hitch. This is a custom fit part number designed to fit the Rams starting in 2013. What I would recommend on a custom fit part is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it'll show you if this will work for your application. This part includes everything shown here on the table. A pop-in gooseneck ball, two of the safety chain lock assemblies, the rubber gooseneck cover and a nice storage bag to carry around these parts. This is a hitch ball which is designed for use with a factory installed gooseneck hitch on the 2013 and newer Ram trucks.

This pop-in ball fits securely into the hitch and it's easy to insert and remove. The way you would do that, on the very top you'll see you just lift up on this lever, turn it 90 degrees, it stays open and that releases the ball bearings in the bottom there. Drop this into the opening and then just turn this and the balls will pop out and lock into place. If this doesn't retract fully you just need to twist it a little bit and then once it retracts that means they've locked into place. The two safety chain hookups included, they're also very easy to install. These would attach directly to those pucks that are built in to the under bed rails for simple mounting and removal.

Same way which you'll do on these, first what you'll want to do is pull up on this lever right here so you just have the tab showing, then you'll go to the puck, drop this in, turn it 90 degrees, and then release that. That dropping in will lock those into place. You'll do this the same on the other side. Very simple installation. It comes with this rubber cover and this is to keep the ball hole free from any dirt or debris so it doesn't build up on the inside. Once you're not using the ball this will go over that hole to protect it.

It also comes with this nice storage bag which will keep the ball in good condition, and helps you carry around all these parts. This bag is very nice, it has a very sturdy bottom, has a nice handle on it. It even has a draw string to pull it closed when everything is in it. The specs on this part, it's gross towing weight is 30,000 pounds, but you will have to remember the capacity will be limited to that of what is on the hitch of your vehicle. The ball size of this is your industry standard 2-5/16" diameter. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. That should do it for the review on part number RP30140.
