RE: Reality check - 2006 Chevy 2500

I tow a 9000 lb FW with a 2012 chevy 2500. 142000 mi No problem. If you are just going to 1 location, go for it. If traveling around I think you would need more truck.

RE: fore and aft movement

Yes. I tried it with and without the teflon disk. It didn't make any diffrence. I prefer the disk.

RE: fore and aft movement

12th man fan Thanks for the tip. I was thinking along those lines. Stopping is smooth but when I come to a complete stop the trailer wants to roll back. That is when I get the "clunk"

RE: fore and aft movement

The play seems to be where the jaws of the hitch wrap around the king pin. I watched as my wife puled the truck forward and back. I could see the pin box/kingpin moving about 3/16" as it slid across the hitch. "Curt" said there is some play "built in". They sent me a video on it. The amount of play seems excessive to me. My hitch seemed to have about the same amount of play as the one in the video.

fore and aft movement

I have a new grand design 5th wheel. hooked up to a new Curt a-16 hitch. this is my 1st 5th wheel. I have about 3/16" to 1/4" travel (play) fore and aft when stopping and starting. Going down the road everything feels fine. But starting and stopping feels like there is too much (play ) between the king pin and the hitch . Is this normal? thank you. I do not use the Turning Point feature on the pin box.

RE: How many times can you torque bolts on a hitch?

I have a Curt A-16 hitch. Bought it about a year ago. The bolts in question on my hitch are marked 10.8.

Landing Gear

When traveling down the road, do most people remove the pads/mud sills from the landing gear or do they leave them attached? This is my first year with a 5th wheel. Thank you.

Pin box

Just took delivery on my 1st 5th wheel. A Grand Design 150 series with a Lippert Turning Point pin box. If I was to install the wedge and move my pivot point back 22", could I go on the highway with this setup ? Or is this just for getting in and out of tight spaces. Thank you.

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch Heigth

MFL - you've answered my question. Thank you. I did not know that pin boxes could be adjusted. My 5th wheel hitch is 17" max and my truck bed rails are 21". I'm not getting the trailer until November so I'll have to wait to get the trailer in order to figure things out.

Fifth Wheel Hitch Heigth

New to Fifth Wheels. What should be the approximate distance between the top of the truck bed and the top of the fifth wheel hitch. I have 4". Will this be enough? Thanks in advance.
