Review of Ultra-Fab ProduCTS Skid Wheels UF48-979018

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number UF48-979018. This is the Ultra-Fab Hitch Mounted Steel Rollers for RVs with 3 inch hitch tubing. The unique rollers are going to clamp around the cross bar of your RV's rear hitch, and that's going to help prevent tail dragging and digging in while the RV is backing up. All the mounted hardware is included. Everything you need is included. It's going to feature a heavy duty steel construction.

It looks like it's got a nice protective finish on it, so it's not going to rust or corrode on you but, again, very strong, very durable. One of the neat things I want to point out is here on the inside of the rollers, we're going to have some bearings. Just like with anything else, bearings need to be lubricated for proper operation. What Ultra-Fab does is they put a grease fitting here in the bolt head. That way you can attach a grease gun to it, and simply just pump in your grease, and it's going to lubricate the bearings so really nice design, easy maintenance with these. It's designed for 3 inch by 3 inch square hitch tubing.

The roller diameter is going to give us a measurement of about 3 inches. If we take a measurement of the roller width, that's going to give us a measurement of 2-1/4 of an inch. With this part number, you're going to get 2 full assemblies. The u-bolts simply go around the tubing on your hitch then on the bottom of the hitch, so these would go around your tubing. Then in between the tubing and the roller assembly would be this bracket right here, this mounting plate. The mounting plate is going to sit directly on top of this bracket and on top of the roller assembly.

Then these are going to come around the tubing, drop through there, and then on the bottom side, you would install the lock nuts that are provided. If we take a measurement of the plate, measuring this direction, that's going to give us a measurement of 4-3/4 of an inch. Measuring this direction, that's going to give us a measurement of about 5-1/2 inches. The thickness of the steel plate is going to be a 1/4 inch. If I put that plate back on top of the roller assembly because that's how it's going to be installed, if we take an overall height measuring from the bottom of the roller to the top of this plate, that's going to give us a measurement of about 3-3/8 to 3-1/2 inches, so right in that range. That's about how far it's going to be hanging from the bottom of the tube of our hitch.

Again, it's designed for 3 inch by 3 inch tubing. That's going to do it for our review of part number UF48-979018. .
