How to Install the B and W Ball and Safety Chain Kit on a 2018 Ram 3500


Today on our 2018 Ram 3500 we're going to be taking a look at the B&W ball and safety chain kit for Ram under bed gooseneck trailer hitch. This is what our B*W gooseneck, and safety chain tie downs, or safety chain loops look like when they're installed on our vehicle. These are gong to work great for your factory or OEM style under bed gooseneck kits. Not only is this setup going to allow us to hook up to our gooseneck trailer easily, but when not in use it's going to store away easily. It's going to give us total bed access. Our ball and our two safety chain loops are going to come out of our factory inaudible 00:00:36 system and store in a nice container.To remove our ball, simply push this lever.

Lift the handle, and it slides out. You'll notice the ball bearing. As we move the handle down to the locked position once we install our ball, it's going to lock that bearing out. There's going to be one on one side, and one on the other. We're going to add two balls.

We're going to hold this in place. The handle is going to allow us to carry our ball, to install it and remove it without having to get our hands all over the hitch ball itself or the gooseneck ball itself. With goosenecks, a lot of grease gets put on here because it does turn. There's a lot of friction in there. This is going to allow us to keep our hands clean.

We just drop it into place, lock our handle down, and our ball is locked into place.The ball is going to be 2 5/16 and have a 30,000 pound gross towing capacity. Keep in mind that does not increase the towing capacity of the vehicle.As far as our safety chain loops, you can see we have very large openings for different size hooks. To get them in and out, it's very simple. You're going to life this center section here like that. We're just going to twist, then they pop out.

To install them, simply going to turn this center section here to where this lines up. We're going to drop it in, and then we're going to spin in. Drop our center section, that's going to lock it in place. With our handle able to be locked in the down position like this, it reduces the risk of accidental disconnects between our ball and our under bed hitch.As I mentioned before, we're going to have a nice carrying case for all of our components when not in use. It'll make it easy to store and keep everything together. It's also going to come with a nice rubber cap to help keep any dirt and debris out of our gooseneck center when not in use. Each one of our components we see here are going to have a coated stainless steel that's going to reduce the risk of any rust or corrosion unlike some of the other kits that are out there. That'll do it for a look at the B&W ball and safety chain kit for Ram under bed gooseneck trailer hitch on our 2018 Ram 3500.
