Video Transcript for Review of Reese Accesories and Parts - Sidewinder Turret Spacer - RP97FR

Michael: Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the spacer kit for your Sidewinder fifth wheel kingpin. As you know, the Sidewinder is a great option for those of you who have short bed pickup trucks that are wanting to haul a fifth wheel. It's going to offset that pivot point, so it's going to give you more maneuverability so that as you're making tight turns and those sort of things, your trailer isn't going to come in contact with your cab. But the Sidewinder does have set dimensions. So if you do have a wider wing set, like any of those that you see on the screen there, you will need the spacers to make sure that everything is going to fit nice and snug and be safe.Now, these are a black powder coated finish, sturdy steel construction so they're going to hold up well, last a long time.

These are going to attach to the turret on your Sidewinder with the roll pins here and they just slide in place and that's going to keep them connected. So you're not going to have to worry about installing these every time or anything like that. It's just going to stay in place and make it just a little bit wider so that it fits in well with those wing plates that you already have. This is right about a quarter inch thick. Can hold the ruler up here so you can see, right about quarter inch in width.

So between the two of them, will take you up to about a half inch and you're going to get two of these plates as well as four of these roll pins and a set of instructions to make sure that you're getting everything installed correctly.Basically the short version is, you can see these little notches in the plate here. So the two notches here indicate that this is the bottom and the notch here indicates that this is the back. So you want to make sure that you get that installed on your Sidewinder with this on the back and these on the bottom and everything should line up perfectly for you. So if you do have that Sidewinder, you need a little bit more space to make sure that everything's going to stay nice and secure. This is the kit that you're going to need.

It does come with a limited lifetime warranty. So if you we're to have any problems with them, you could give us a call, we'd help you out with that.But I really think these are going to be a great option for you. You're not going to have to worry about rattling or just not being safe in your connection. So this is going to be the kit for you. So that's going to complete our look for today.

Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

  • How To Determine If a Reese Goose Box Will Fit a 2003 Jayco Eagle 277RBS 5TH Wheel Camper
    To determine if the Reese Goose Box # RP85FR will fit your 2003 Jayco Eagle 277RBS you will need to identify the pin box you have.

  • What is the Difference in the 3rd Generation Reese Goosebox?
    There are a couple of major differences in the 3rd generation Reese Goosebox item # RP85FR over the prior models. First and foremost it now fits the Lippert Rhino pin box. This pin box is more common now than ever and 5th wheel owners will finally have a gooseneck adapter option that will not void their warranty. Visually the biggest change will be the removal of the taller wings. Reese has changed the angle of the entire goosebox to remove the deeper drop look to a more streamlined appearance....

  • Will the Reese Goose Box Adapter for Lippert 1716 Work with Mega Cab
    The Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter part # RP85FR is about the same size as the standard pin box it's designed to replace so you won't gain cab clearance but you won't lose any either. It mounts to the same holes as the original as well so the height adjustment will be very similar. That said, I have attached a full dimensional drawing below as well so you can be certain it will work for you. If you are replacing a Lippert 1716 pin box, you will need to...

  • Reese Goose Box For 20k Lippert 1116 Pin Box On A 2020 Keystone Montana
    I spoke to Lippert and with the info you supplied, they told me that you have a 19,000 pound rated 1116 pin box. With that being said, you will need the following: - Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter - 20,000 lbs # RP85FR - Spacer Kit # RP97FR The Lippert 1116 is fairly common, but Reese does not have a goose box that will bolt directly to it without the spacer kit, so it is needed.

  • Is there a 3rd Gen Reese GooseBox w/ a 16K Capacity?
    We had the Reese rep in not long ago and the 16k capacity 3rd Generation Goosebox doesn't have a release date and is not expected in the near future(10/15/23). Reese's parent company Horizon Global is currently going through a buy out which has created a logistical nightmare so new parts aren't coming out. The only 3rd Gen available is the Reese Goose Box 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Air Ride Coupler Adapter item # RP85FR. The pressure in the air bags is adjustable and you won't have any problems...

You will also need the Sidewinder Wedge Kit for 20,000-lb Reese ELITE, M-Series, or ProSeries Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches part # RP44FR but that's it.

  • Pin Box Replacement for 2010 Montana that Provides Turning Clearance so Slider Hitch Not Needed
    The Trailair pin box part # LC158777 was not designed to provide additional turning clearance so if you were looking for a pin box replacement solution that would give you more turning clearance you'd need the Sidewinder part # RP34FR which fits the same pin box replacement as the Trailair you mentioned and since it moves the pivot point of the trailer back 22 inches you end up with enough turning clearance to not need to use a slider hitch. Our understanding is that your 2010 Montana...
