Expert Answers about Gooseneck Coupler


  • Recommended Camper Tie Downs and Hitch Extender For 2017 Ram 3500 W/ Lance Camper Towing Trailer
  • I would be happy to help! Lets start with the extender. The extender you will need to add an additional hitch to use in conjunction with the factory hitch on your 2017 Ram 3500 DRW, as the highest rated extension compatible with it maxes out at 8000lbs when using weight distribution which is quite a bit under the 12,600lb rating of your trailer. You will need the TorkLift SuperHitch Magnum Trailer Hitch Receiver # TLD1108-30 which will allow you to use the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch...

  • Is There a 3-1/2 Inch Per Side Inner Gooseneck Coupler Available?
  • There is not an inner gooseneck coupler square tube we carry that has the 3.5 inch outer dimension you referenced. All of the square gooseneck couplers we carry from all brands have the inner sleeve outer measurement of 4 inches on each side like the Bulldog BX1 Gooseneck Coupler Inner Tube - Square - 2-5/16" Ball - 25,000 lbs # BD1289210300. If you need to have something custom made for your dimensions, then I recommend using the Gooseneck Coupler Head Kit # GC-HEAD to give you the...

  • Locking Pin Compatible with BWGNC4250 Gooseneck Coupler
  • The B&W Defender Locking Gooseneck Coupler Inner Tube - Round - 2-5/16" Ball - 25,000 lbs # BWGNC4250 would require an incredible lifting height of the trailer steadily straight up to release a trailer when locked at the coupler to the hitch ball. That is the only reason it doesn't come with the locking pin you referenced. The InfiniteRule Hitch Lock for Gen-Y Gooseneck Coupler w/ 4" Round Tube - Stainless Steel # 34065041 would be a great fit. It is a 3/4 inch diameter lock that has...

  • Gooseneck Coupler That Is Easiest To Attach To Gooseneck Hitch Ball
  • There is one gooseneck coupler with a wide flange that is also the easiest to hook up to your gooseneck ball, which is the B&W Defender Locking Gooseneck Coupler. Not only is the coupler base a full 6 inches in diameter, it is also a funnel, as you can see by the accompanying photo. The funnel means you do not have to be right on top of your gooseneck hitch ball, it only needs to be within 2 inches of the ball to hook up. The coupler can be had with either the inner and outer tube,...

  • Can I use the Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler without using the Side Holes?
  • Yes, you can use the Bulldoge Gooseneck Coupler, # BD0287610300, with just the set screws on your trailer. The pre-cut holes on this coupler are specifically for Bulldog's outer tube assembly, # BD0233100300, that can be welded to your trailer in place of your existing tube, but it is not a requirement to use the inner tube with your existing setup. Bulldog created this feature for an added safety benefit. In fact, you wouldn't want to line up your set screws with the existing holes...

  • As long as the your current inner tube of your gooseneck coupler on your 2004 Featherlite 8541 measures 4" in diameter then you can absolutely use just the inner tube of the Round Gooseneck Coupler with 28" - 38" Adjustable Height - 24,000 lbs # SAC2516-I you were looking at. Another option is just purchasing the Bulldog BX1 Gooseneck Coupler Inner Tube - Round - 2-5/16" Ball - 25,000 lbs # BD1289020300 which is just a the inner tube and will save you a little bit of money over buying...

  • Replacement Round Gooseneck Coupler With Inner & Outer Tube
  • I can absolutely understand not wanting to have to cut off the entire tube, but there just isn't an option for a tube with a coupler that goes over your 4" diameter tube. The reason for that is the inner tubing - the part with the coupler - on standard goosenecks now are 4" diameter so they wouldn't be able to go over the tube. So you will need to remove your current tube and install a new gooseneck coupler with an inner and outer tube, and you can choose from a couple, depending on...

  • Will Gen-Y Pegasus Shock Absorbing Hitch Work With Tongue Weight Under 2,000 lbs
  • So the Gen-Y Pegasus Shock Absorbing Gooseneck Coupler # 325-GH-7006 will really only be effective if your trailer's tongue weight is between 2,000 lbs and 3,500 lbs. If by a little light you meant a little lighter than 3,500 lbs then it will be a great option. If you meant you will be under 2,000 lbs then you are not going to see much benefit and your hard-earned money would be better spent elsewhere. The best option is really going to be something that improves your suspension, which...

  • What is Best Fifth Wheel to Gooseneck Adapter Solution
  • The best choice would be the Convert a Ball Gooseneck adapter part # CAB-C5GX1216 because it is cushioned whereas the other option is not. That said if you have a Lippert pin box on your trailer the best option is the Reese Goose Box adapters like the part # RP94716 which fits the very popular Lippert 1621 pin box. This has a much more advanced cushioning system since it has an air bag and shock setup. But there are only options for these to fit Lippert 1621 pin boxes.

  • Can B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler be Installed Without a Cross Pin
  • The B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 is a great solution for your application. The torque setting that B&W calls out for the set bolt can be found in the instructions (which I'm linking to this page). We try to avoid calling out specifics for torque specs just in case the manufacturer changes something down the road so it's always best to check the current instructions. If this were a straight coupler you'd be just fine with the set bolt and no cross pin but since this...

  • Does the Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler BD0289340317 Come with Release Cable
  • The cable to operate the release on the Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler part # BD0289340317 is not included because it is not needed. It is only for convenience as you can still operate the coupler lock with just the handle. If you do want to add a cable then you would need to use the one off your old coupler or modify something to work for you as we do not carry these.

  • Can Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler be Used with B and W Gooseneck Hitch
  • Pop in gooseneck balls are ones that have a round base that uses what looks like a large ball bearing as the mechanism to hold it to the hitch. Some of these balls have the release lever on top of the ball which is called out in this as well. The B and W Gooseneck Hitch # BWGNRK1251-5W that you mentioned is not a pop-in ball style of hitch so the # CG will work just fine with it.

  • Cushioned Gooseneck Coupler that Can be Used with Ford Gooseneck Pop In Ball
  • There's a ridge on the inside of the Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler # CG that will catch on the pop in style gooseneck balls due to the edge present for the lever release mechanisms. This will cause wear on the ball and the coupler and is why it's not recommended. For a cushioned adapter similar that does not have the stipulation we have the Gen-Y Gooseneck Coupler w/ Shock Absorption # 325-GH-7001 which actually features a much better shock system than the # CG.

  • Offset Gooseneck for 2021 Ford F-350 Short Bed With OEM 5TH Wheel Gooseneck Hitch
  • The best option for you would be a B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200. It will give you an extra 10" clearance between your trailer and the cab of your 2021 Ford F-350. This fits standard 4" diameter outer tubes. There are no offset gooseneck balls for any factory in bed towing kits. This is due to the hitch not having a locking pin that would physically prevent the ball from turning. I recommend B&W Ball and Safety Chain Kit # BWGNXA2061 as it is one of the simplest...

Depending on the coupler you have on your gooseneck trailer you may be able to use the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler - 2-5/16" Ball - 10" Offset - 24,000 lbs # BWTEXA4200 which will give you 10" of offset.

  • Recommended Gen-Y Pegasus Gooseneck Coupler for 2014 Bison Stratus Horse Trailer
  • For a gooseneck or fifth wheel trailer, the general rule of thumb is that the pin weight would be roughly 20% of the trailers GVWR, which is about 14200 lbs which would put your maximum pin weight around 2800 lbs. Given that, I'd recommend the Gen-Y # 325-GH-7007 Pegasus Gooseneck coupler, which features an 11 inch offset for more clearance between the truck and trailer, and is designed for a recessed gooseneck ball. The coupler has a 3500 lb pin weight capacity, which is plenty for...

  • Will the Ram Topwing Gooseneck Coupler Inner Tube Work With Another Coupler
  • The Gooseneck Trailer Coupler part # LL2516ST and Ram Gooseneck Coupler part # GCSQTW-30008 both have a 4" wide inner tube with similar topwind handle. Therefore, in theory you should be able to swap the inner tube out between one another. That said, there is no way to confirm this as there are more moving parts than just the handle and inner tube and since they are different manufactures one could have used different components that the other making the two incompatible.

  • Could Trailer be Drilled to Allow Install of B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200
  • Normally drilling is not required when installing the B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200. Typically this has the correct hole size and location for most trailer applications. But if you need to drill your trailer to give you the correct matching hole size for this you certainly could.

  • Are Set Screw Holes Required to Be Drilled To Hold The B&W Extend-A-Goose Coupler?
  • The B&W Extend-A-Goose Gooseneck Coupler # BWTEXA4200 should not be drilled into. The coupler sleeve is required to either have 2 set bolts or 1 set bolt if you have a safety through pin to secure it in place on your tube sleeve. A Master Lock Laminated Steel Padlock # ML1KA can be used to secure the coupler when attached to your tow vehicle. And if you choose to have multiple locks keyed alike you can use them all to secure any locks on trailer as well to have a one key system of locks.

  • When Replacing Trailer Gooseneck Coupler with Bulldog # BD0289340317 What Set Screws are Used
  • To install the Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler # BD0289340317 that you referenced will require you to totally remove the outer tube and inner tube of your current coupler and then you'd weld the outer tube of the Bulldog in place of that. Once this is done you'll be using the Bulldog set screwn and pin setup you see on the coupler. So what you have now would not be used at all.

This particular coupler is the inner and outer tube so it would replace the whole coupler on your 2007L Lakota Horse Trailer. It is a 4-1/2" outer tube that would need to be welded on by a professional welder. If you are trying to replace just the inner or outer tube I would need to know the diameter of the tube and the brand if you can find it on a sticker that would be helpful.

  • Does Electrical Ground Through the Gen-Y # 325-GH-7061
  • Although the coupler, like the Gen-Y # 325-GH-7061, does provide some ground your main ground needs to be through your 7-Way connector, like part # H20046. The ground pin is the 5 o'clock position (see attached picture) so if you are having ground issues you need to check your connectors for corrosion as well as any other ground points like where your lights ground to the frame of your trailer.

  • Is Bulldog Gooseneck Coupler Compatible with Temco Top Crank Adjustment Coupler?
  • It sounds like the Bulldog coupler # BD028900 may work for your application. This coupler adjusts 7 inches and uses an inner tube that is 4 inches fitting into an outer tube that is 4-1/2 inches. Without knowing the component of the Temco coupler, I can't confirm a fit, but if your outer tube is 4-1/2 inches, you should be able to make it work with minor adjustments because you will be doing a custom application.

  • Installation and Set Bolt Tightening of Convert-A-Ball Gooseneck Trailer Coupler
  • The Convert-A-Ball Multi-Cushioned Gooseneck Trailer Coupler - Round - 30,000 lbs # CG doesn't have a specific torque spec because it is just the inner sleeve. The set bolt torque spec you need would be based on the outer sleeve with the bolts. Based on similar goosenecks this would be in the neighborhood of 125 ft lbs but I can't give you anything specific from the manufacturer.

  • How Far Can I Extend Temco Gooseneck Coupler
  • Most inner tubes of gooseneck couplers have adjustability holes to allow you to pin the inner tube into the outer tube. From my research, the Temco gooseneck coupler inner tube has holes. You can extend to the last hole of the inner tube. If your Temco coupler has set screws or pinch screws instead of holes with a pin, most designs of gooseneck couplers allow for at least ten inches above the top hole on the inner tube according to Bulldog. To be safe, I would keep 10 inches or more...

  • Offset Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • We do have a possible solution for you but there isn't a hitch ball like the Reese # RP30140 that offers an offset to the factory gooseneck hitch in your 2017 Ram 2500 short bed. Instead I recommend using the B&W Extend-A-Goose Coupler # BWTEXA4200 on your gooseneck trailer. It'll give you 10 inches of offset which is way more than you'll get from a hitch ball.

The vertical load limit is the amount of weight pushing down on the ball. On a regular hitch it's called tongue weight. So as long as the trailer "tongue" weight is under 6,000 pounds it will be within the capacity of this coupler.
