Video Transcript for Andersen Gooseneck and Fifth Wheel Adapters AM3109 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number AM3109. These are the safety chains for a Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapters. Safety chains are going to be a necessary precaution when you are towing. They're going to attach to your Ranch Hitch Coupler Adapter when installed on a 5th-Wheel trailer. They're going to work with both the straight and offset models. It's going to include everything you see on the table, so you're going to get the safety chain, and the mounting brackets, the hooks, all the necessary hardware for a complete installation. The product's made in the U.S.A.

The chain and the hooks are going to be made from a steel construction. They're going to have a nice chromate finish to resist rust and corrosion. It's going to be a Grade 70 chain that has a link diameter of 5/16 of an inch. They're going to have the forged steel hooks. These have the nice safety latch design to it, so it's going to prevent accidental disconnecting. When I took a measurement from the center of the bolt, I stretched the chain out from the center of the bolt to the center of the hook area.

That gave us a measurement of about 36 inches long, that's going to be the same on either side. These chains have been tested, and they meet the standards for up to 18,000 pounds when it comes to the capacity. The setup, simply clamps around the Ranch Hitch Coupler, and it's going to provide two chains that have the hooks at the ends. That simply attaches to the safety chain loops in the bed of your truck. To show you, on each side we're going to have the same components. You're going to have your chain, you're going to have your bolt, lock nut, and then your spacers.

You need to make sure that it goes through the link, the spacer goes on each side of that link in the chain, and then you tighten the lock nut all the way down. You're adapter portion is going to fit right inside that clamp. Very simple installation, and it's ready to go right out of the box. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3109. This is the safety chain kit for the Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter from Andersen. .

Never used it. It did not fit on my gooseneck adapter

This works with Ranch Hitch 5th-wheel-to-gooseneck coupler adapters both the straight and offset models.

easy to install fits a variety of trail ers



by:

There seems to be some question on the legal requirement for safety chains on a gooseneck adapted 5th wheel. However, I decided there was no question when it comes to safety. These chains were exactly what I needed and e-trailer's response time was exceptional.


Comments
Safety chains are something you hope you never need, but provide a level of comfort knowing you have them, just in case. Ive never questioned the wisdom of installing these chains and am quite happy with them.

I am using this on my 5th wheel gooseneck adapter. Then I had to buy D rings to hook it up to my truck. For SAFETY I would have thought that the chains would have come with the gooseneck adapter.

If anyone is looking for a set of safety chains for a goose neck trailer I would highly recommend these, very heavy duty and looks like they will last forever very well made and are heavy duty. This company that I purchased this item from as far as I'm concerned is a great company, I just ordered a under the bed B/W 30,000 lb hitch and needed safety chains to go with the Rancher adapter kit I have. These ladies that I worked with in getting this thing put together are awesome and very knowledgeable. Will order form them again, excellent company to deal with, Highly recommended.



by:

We got the safety chains and are very satisfied. Your customer service is great and shipping times are really fast!!!!

etrailer is spot on!!


Comments

I ordered safety chains for my new RV gooseneck and it is even better product that I thought. Great support and on time delivery.


Comments
I just wanted to say that I looked at our receipts to see what it was that we bought from you. Yes those chains worked great and I left them on the goose neck of the RV for whoever buys it.

Gooseneck safety chain setI was very pleased with the service offered by etrailer. Their e-catalogue give me all the information I needed to make a decision about the product I was looking for. I received the safety chain set very quickly. I was amazed at the quality. This set is made specifically for my hitch so I'm not concerned about fit. The finish was excellent. I would like to see etrailer carry the ubolt set that these chains hook to which is installed in the bed of the truck. Not all hitches come with the ubolt set.

Well done etrailer.



by:

Ordered with Ranch Hitch Adapter; simple to install and a great added measure of security/safety. Very heavy duty parts throughout, no corners cut on design or manufacturing. Chains are HD as well and are long enough to hang on back of fifth wheel hitch housing to keep them out of the way when not in use.



by:

Very well made. A must for those living in states that require safety chains and for peace of mind any where you go. Very easy installation with just two wrenches needed. I installed these chains on a Ranch Hitch 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter.



by:

Even though e trailer was out of stock they were able complete and deliver my order on the original schedule delivery date...awesome job!
Thanks, now I can pull my fifth wheel safely with the new safety chains.



by:

If you need safety chains for a Ranch Hitch 5th wheel/gooseneck adapter...get'em from George at etrailer.com. Very beefy and fit perfect..five minute install...mailed to our door in 4 days!!!!



by:

Very fast at getting orders out and came in a couple days fit right on our adaptor and just what we needed.



by:

Thanks for the fast service. Items are just like described.



by:

Heavy duty, easy to install, no doubt it will hold the truck and trailer together.


Comments
Great product, great price!

Upon opening the box and inspecting the item, I was impressed with the quality and beefyness. I am well pleased and would recommend this to anyone. I also though this was a fair price.



by:

Great product and excellent service. I will use etrailer for all my future needs. Thanks



by:

Heavy duty fit perfect. Wife said it looked "nice".



by:

Chain easy to find natal and heavy duty product



by:

These safety chains were delived in a timely manner and where just as advertised except that there is no brand name on the clamps which is fine with me.



by:

I was pleased the safety chains arrived so quickly. I am a 73 year old farm lady and had no problem installing it on my RV by myself. Would have been easier if I had another hand but no real problem.



by:

It is great! It is super strong, easy to install and looks good too! We were impressed with how “beefy” it is! This set up gives us confidence our trailer and truck are safer!

  • Are Safety Chains Required By DOT
    Although the laws regarding towing safety can vary from state to state, using safety chains is a practice I would consider mandatory.

  • Could Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch Coupler Adapter item # AM3109 Fit Gooseneck
    As long as the outer diameter of the gooseneck hitch tube you have is 4-1/2 inches the # AM3109 would fit as that's the size it was designed to fit.

  • Is Tires Getting Pulled To the Side on Triple Axle Trailer Around Tight Turns Normal
    What you are experiencing is tire scrubbing and is totally normal on a triple axle trailer. When you might a tight turn with a triple axle trailer some of the tires are going to be pulled to the side. There's really no way around that with a triple axle trailer. Make sure the tires are inflated to their max psi and you'll be good.

  • Installing Safety Chains to Andersen Ranch Adapter
    The Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, part # AM3109 are extremely easy to install. The bracket would simply clamp around the outer sleeve of the unit, using the supplied grade 8 bolts. No torque rating is specified, but the folks at Andersen I spoke with said that 100 foot pounds would be fine.

  • Are Safety Chains Required When Using a 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Adapter
    A gooseneck trailer, or in this case a converted 5th wheel trailer using Ranch Hitch, # AM3139, will still need safety chains as if required by law in the states you will be traveling. You will need to check with the Department of Transportation for your state and where you will be traveling to determine the specific requirements as they may vary from state to state. There is a set of chains made specifically to go with the Ranch Hitches. Take a look at the Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch...

  • Are Safety Chains Required when Using a Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter
    You will need to check with your local laws on what is required with your setup. But typically if the vehicle has a gooseneck hitch safety chains will be required. For a safety chain setup to go along with the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3100 that you referenced you would want the Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3109.

  • Will Using the Ranch Hitch Adapter Allow a Truck to Still Tow Regular Gooseneck Trailers
    The Ranch Hitch # AM3100 secures to a 5th wheel trailer king pin and will allow you to tow a 5th wheel trailer with a gooseneck trailer hitch. So if all you have is a gooseneck trailer hitch and you wanted to pull a 5th wheel trailer, you would use this adapter. I also recommend safety chains # AM3109. Using the adapter does not modify the gooseneck hitch in the truck at all so you will be able to still tow gooseneck trailers as well. I have included a link to our FAQ article showing...

  • Do 5th Wheel Trailers Require the Use of Safety Chains
    No, 5th wheel trailer connections do not require safety chains. Consumer 5th wheel applications connect to the truck the same way that big rigs connect to trailers and this is considered a secure enough connection to not require safety chains. Items that connect to a ball do require safety chains. So if you are using the Ranch Hitch adapter # AM3139 as an example, you would need safety chains. You can then use the safety chain attachment, # AM3109. You can also check the laws in your...

  • How Much Clearance is Needed Around a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Ball for Toolboxes
    The amount of clearance you will need around the gooseneck ball is going to depend on the trailer coupled to it. If you were using the Ranch Hitch adapter # AM3100 to tow a 5th wheel trailer using the gooseneck hitch then at the widest point, where it attaches to the ball, is 5-1/2 inches. So you would need more than 5-1/2 inches all the way around (measured from the center of the ball) if using this adapter. I would say if you had 6-1/2 inches all the way around that would allow for enough...

  • Safety Chain Recommendation for Use with Ranch Hitch # AM3139
    The Safety Chains for Ranch Hitch 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, # AM3109 that you referenced were designed for the same capacities as the Ranch Hitch, # AM3139 that you have installed on your trailer. As long as you aren't exceeding the capacity for the # AM3139 the safety chains, if needed, would have enough capacity for you. If you are referring to the safety chains that are on a gooseneck trailer, then yes those too have enough capacity.

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer Adapter to Tow the Trailer with a Gooseneck Hitch in a 2014 Ram Short Bed
    We don't carry a Reese adapter in that style but I do have a solution for you. Since your 2014 Ram is a short bed I suggest the Andersen # AM3139 adapter because it has an offset. The offset will help with clearance when executing sharp turns. If you also need the safety chains to work with the adapter use # AM3109.

  • Could Ranch Hitch Gooseneck Adapter Safety Chains Fit Gooseneck Hitch
    The Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3100 measures 4-1/2 inches in diameter on the outside and the Safety Chains # AM3109 fit around the adapter, as you can see in the accompanying photo. So as long as your gooseneck coupler has a 4-1/2 inch outer tube the chains will fit around it. If you have a different outer diameter let me know and I'll see what is best option.

    The Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, # 9480, is designed to work with Draw-Tite, Bulldog or BandW gooseneck hitches. It has not been tested with a Popup hitch so I cannot say if it is a fit or not. Another option is to use a 5th wheel trailer to gooseneck hitch adapter on the trailer. I recommend the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, # AM3100, and safety chains # AM3109. This adapter has a pin weight capacity of 6,000 pounds and a gross...

  • Recommendation for a 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Trailer Adater for a 2004 Ford F-350 Crew Cab 4x4
    No question for me, I absolutely recommend the Ranch Hitch, # AM3100, that you have selected. It has a gross trailer weight capacity of 24,000 pounds and a pin weight capacity of 6,000 pounds. Plus, it has 3 inches of adjustability from 11-3/4 inches, up to 14-3/4 inches. To determine the height you will need for any given trailer, there are some simple measurements you can take ahead of time. First, back your truck into position as if you were hooking up your fifth-wheel trailer, making...

    The fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapter # AM3100 is designed for the industry standard 2 inch king pin. It is fairly easy to be certain it will fit, however, by taking some measurements on the 2002 Jayco Qwest trailer. You can perform these steps to determine if the adapter will work for your fifth-wheel trailer. 1. Pull the truck into position as if you were hooking up to the trailer, making sure that the truck and trailer are level. 2. Measure from the pin box to the top of the ball...

  • Fifth Wheel Trailer to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter Recommendation for Dodge Ram 3500 Short Bed
    For a 5th wheel trailer to gooseneck hitch adapter with an offset, I recommend the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter with 8 inch Offset, # AM3139. This adapter can be bolted onto the trailer pin box and you can leave it installed so you do not have to remove it and re-install it every time. The hitch is meant to be bolted into place. The Ranch Hitch adapter is designed for trailers with a standard or extended pin box up to 24 inches long (measured diagonally)....

  • Recommended 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Hitch Adapter for a Short Bed Truck
    As long as you have a standard extended pin box that does not measure to be more than 24" long (see photo) then I recommend using the Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter part # AM3139. This adapter has an 8" offset which will be ideal for short bed trucks. It also has 3" of vertical adjustments if you will be towing with multiple vehicles. The adapter is very easy to install which should take around an hour but you will need the slide hammer part # AM3103 for installation....

    The two parts you referenced, the Andersen Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter # AM3100 and the Safety Chains # AM3109, are intended to be used together. It is not a one or the other situation. The safety chains # AM3109 alone are NOT a coupler to mate your 5th wheel with your goose neck hitch. 5th wheel to goose neck adapters come in several varieties as outlined in the linked article. Some will place more stress on the hitch and trailer frame. The adapter # AM3100 is a type...

    Since you have a gooseneck installed in your truck bed, I recommend using an adapter like the Andersen Ranch Hitch Universal 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Coupler Adapter, part # AM3100. This attaches to the king pin on the fifth wheel trailer and slips over the gooseneck ball in the bed of the truck. You will need to make sure you watch for clearance when executing turns. With the short bed truck bed a sharp turn could cause the trailer to hit the truck. This adapter has a capacity of 24,000...

  • How to Select Safety Chains for Use with Agricultural Trailers
    Safety chains should be selected by first confirming the weights of the two trailers when they are fully loaded. Next you will determine the length you need for the two ends to reach the trailer and truck without dragging on the ground. For example, Andersen Ultimate Safety Chains # RM3230 is a pair of 35-inch chains with 3-1/2-inch levis hooks, D-rings and hardware. These are rated for 24,000-lbs. These and other chains can be seen by clicking on the link provided.

    The set up on your 1999 Ford F-250 Super Duty certainly sounds like it was done correctly. If there are any issues, it probably will not be on the truck side. You will need to contact the 5th wheel trailer manufacturer to see if the Ranch Hitch, # AM3100, can be used. If the trailer has an extended pinbox, it will most likely need to have the frame reinforced by a qualified professional welder. The use of an adapter like the Ranch Hitch can put extra stress on the trailer frame and gooseneck...
