Forged, Self-Latching Jaw

Self-Latching Jaw

The one-piece jaw on this fifth-wheel hitch provides absolute security with its wraparound design. Increased jaw-to-king-pin contact results in not only a stronger connection, but less noisy rattling and stiff chucking as well.


The jaw is also always ready to receive, so you don't need to use the handle to open it before backing up toward your trailer. As long as the bail pin is removed from the latching handle, the jaw will accept the king pin as it enters the hitch.


Finally, the jaw is self-latching, so it will automatically secure your trailer's king pin when it moves into the jaw.


Quiet, Comfortable Ride

Pivot Bushings

In addition to the tight jaw tolerance, a close connection between the head and the pivot bushings further reduces rattle and movement. And because the pivot bushings are independent from the head, they can be tightened to ensure a strong connection over time.


King Pin Indicator Prevents High Pinning

King Pin Indicator

This M5 hitch features a built-in king pin indicator to ensure proper hookup. This indicator is located on the back of the head along with a V-shaped notch that are both visible from the cab of your truck. The V-notch is lined up with the jaw at the front of the hitch, and can be used as a guiding point to line the king pin up with the jaw as you back up your truck. The jaw also has an internal plate that keeps the king pin from entering if it is too high to enter safely. As a result, the king pin indicator will only change from red to green if the king pin is fully engaged in the jaw.


Easy-to-Use Latching Handle

Lever and Hitch

This hitch's handle is designed for smooth motion and effortless operation. It requires only 2 fingers to use and won't bind up as you pull. In addition, the handle is long, so it's easy to access from outside of your truck bed. And the ergonomic grip makes it comfortable to hold and pull from different angles.

Tried to install this on a 2001 Chevy Silverado 3500, dual rear wheel, long bed, 4x4, diesel engine truck. The clamp style mounting simply does not work. The ONLY way I can see this working is by drilling added holes in the frame of the truck at the front end of the side plates. This is because of a bend in the frame at the clamp location. Also at this location the frame is boxed in and any bolt holes will be hidden. Bolts would have to fished in with bolt wires.

I see that you are stuck on some parts of this installation. I have gotten in contact with one of our technicians and they had mentioned that you should be able to find what you need in the instructions on page 5. https:www.reeseprod.comproduct-assetsinstallN30926.pdf

I am very pleased with my purchase of the Reese M5, a major improvement over my old receiver. Great service from etrailer as well.

Just received yesterday, will be having it installed on Monday and will be pulling my new camper home next Saturday. Will update afterwards with pics

Still works good, but every once in a while it dosent want to latch around the kingpin.



by:

Great quality, worked perfect and easy to use. I was so happy with it that I transferred it to my new vehicle. I would recommend this to a friend.



by:

I love it. It’s very easy for me to setup. The only issue i had was rge breakout away cable snapped in have and i was not able to find a replacement. I had a friend who was able to make me another one.



by:

Great product, shipped in really good time, etrailer was excellent in communication, only small problem was package was damaged in transit, and my item had some pretty bad scratches on it. But when I notified etrailer of this they gave me a choice of shipping it back in exchange for a new one or giving me a nice credit back if I could live with the scratches. I choose the latter and I thought it was great that they gave me the choice.



by:

I had to return this hitch as it was unusable due to manufacturing defects. etrailer honored the return and refunded me completely.



by:

The order before I received this one, I do not understand why you would ship two products that would not work together although I ordered them wrong, with out letting me know before it was shipped. I didn't know that my order was wrong until I went to install it in my truck. It cost me time and money.

Easy install, visual confirmation pin is locked into 5th Wheel, and no more chucking when pulling trailer.

I see our customer service team is working on sending you the missing parts, but I am sorry you are having to go through all this when it should have all been delivered together. Thanks for giving us the chance to make it right.



by:

This went well also. Only thing that could have been better is the grease (lube) information. To this day, I still don't know what parts to lubricate or where or with what.

Well that would be some good information to know! I am getting that added to our site for future reference. You will need to use engine oil to lubricate pivot points of moving parts within the hitch.



by:

Great hitch. Easy to use and pulls my 40ft rig like a champion!



by:

Always polite and know exactly what you need for your application. Tim was a pleasure to work with.

I've only just got it installed and as of yet have not tested it under load. Hope to pick-up and tow my RV back home this weekend. I will update My review when I return.

Loved the product, hated the installation instructions

Got expert advice from David B Everything arrived and put on today. Worked beautifully

2 of the 3 boxes arived the day before it was scheduled to arrive. The 3rd box arrived the next day as scheduled. The qr code on the head did not work, it took me to a 404 error page on the Reese site.

See what our Experts say about this Reese Fifth Wheel Hitch

  • How to Measure Installation Height for a 5th Wheel Hitch on a Custom Made Bed
    To measure the height that the fifth wheel head will need to be, on your custom made bed, you will need to park the vehicle and trailer on a fairly level surface and do some measuring. Back your vehicle under the fifth-wheel trailer stopping when the center of the king pin is directly above the center of the fifth-wheel attachment jaws. Measure from the top of the bed on the truck to the base of the pin box on the trailer. This will give you the measurement needed to select a mounting...

  • Troubleshooting Sway When Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
    First suggestion would be to stop towing the trailer till you figure out how to fix the sway issue as sway can sometimes flip vehicles/trailers. Sway with fifth wheel trailers is typically not very common when compared to bumper pull towing so when it is happening it's almost always due to suspension problems on the trailer. That would be the first thing I would check. Also make sure you aren't exceeding the towing capacity of your truck. If you are overloading the truck beyond what it...

  • Benefits of Fifth Wheel Hitch with 4 Way Pivoting Head vs. 2 Way Head
    The answer to your question will depend on what kind of surfaces your tow vehicle will be parked on when you hitch/unhitch the trailer. If you are going to find yourself pretty consistently on level, even pavement, then a fifth wheel hitch whose head pivots forward and back will work fine for you. On the other hand, if you will hitch and unhitch on uneven ground on a regular basis, you will thank yourself for going with a hitch that has the 4 way pivoting head, like the Reese 5th Wheel...

  • Are Tongue Weight, Hitch Weight and Pin Weight The Same Thing For a Fifth Wheel Trailer
    Tongue weight and hitch weight describe the same thing, the amount of downward force applied to the hitch. For a fifth wheel hitch, it's usually called pin weight. For example the # RP30928 has a pin weight capacity of 5,000lbs. A 3/4 or 1 ton truck with a long bed would be the preferred vehicle for towing a fifth wheel trailer. The vehicle will have plenty of power and a suspension designed for heavy loads. The long bed will ensure plenty of clearance between the front of the fifth wheel...

  • Do Jaws on M5 Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch PS30119 Automatically Open when Hitching Up
    Yes, the jaw on the M5 Series 5th wheel trailer hitch # RP30928 will automatically open when the trailer king pin is forced into the hitch when you back up the truck. There is a latch on the handle that has to be opened or the jaws will not be able to open. So you would do that first and then hitch up. The detailed process is explained in the manual I have linked below for you.

    I am going to send you a copy of the installation instructions for the M5 Series 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30928 in a separate email, inside them you will find the maintenance schedule. Basically you will need to check the tightness of the bolts every thousand miles and torque to spec.

  • Recommendation for Fifth Wheel Hitch on 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500HD Towing a 2014 Grand Design 369RL
    My personal recommendation would be for the M5 Series, part # RP30928. This fifth wheel hitch uses the single-jaw design to provide a comfortable ride while towing. To ensure that this hitch will work with your current rails, I am including a picture that shows the mounting holes for this fifth wheel hitch. These holes have been circled in red and are spaced at 20-1/2 inches on center. If your current rails have these same mounting holes, you would be able to mount this hitch using your...

  • Can Reese M5 Fifth Wheel Hitch Sit Taller than 18 inches
    If your Reese M5 # RP30928 is in it's highest position there isn't a way to make it any taller but you might be able to lower the pin box in your frame brackets to accomplish basically the same thing as making the hitch taller.

  • Truck Option and Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for Towing Long Trailer
    Are you talking about a hitch or a truck? For a trailer that long you will want to go with a 1 ton long bed truck to ensure you have the towing capacity for such a heavy trailer. You will also want to go with a long bed truck so that you have enough clearance to make tight turns without having to use a slider hitch. For better turning characteristics for the truck I would recommend a extended cab or regular cab over a 4 door truck as that will shorten the wheelbase which will allow the...

  • Will Fifth Wheel Rails have Capacity for 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch
    The great thing about fifth wheel rails is that they will carry the same weight capacity as whatever hitch is installed in them. So if you installed a 20k fifth wheel hitch in the rails you have now like the Reese # RP30928 the overall capacity would be 20k.

  • Will a Reese 20K 5th Wheel Hitch Fit the Same Rails as a Reese 16K Hitch
    Yes, a Reese 20K 5th wheel trailer hitch such as # RP30928 will fit in the same rails as a 16K model. The 16K and 20K both fit industry standard above the bed rails.

  • Can Short Bed Truck Tow Fifth Wheel Trailer with Turning Point Pin Box with Fixed Hitch
    Since your trailer has the Turning Point pin box you do not need to use a slider hitch. A fixed hitch would work just fine like the Reese hitch part # RP30928 that you referenced which I think would work really well for you. The pivoting pin boxes are much better than using a slider hitch so I would recommend sticking with that if at all possible.

  • How to Determine Towing Capacity for a 2004.5 Dodge Ram Cummins
    The final authority on what your towing capacity will be the owners manual of your 2004.5 Dodge Ram. Without knowing whether you have a 2500 or 3500 would make it pretty hard to determine. You also need to consider that even though you have modified your vehicle you still are limited to the factory capacity for your truck. Taller tire and lift kits can make it more difficult to tow the vehicle level, but it's still possible. Capacities are more than just the power the engine produces....

  • Does Bed Length Matter When Towing a Bumper Pull Boat Trailer
    Bed length isn't normally a big issue for towing a trailer at the rear of a vehicle with a trailer hitch. You would not notice any significant ride quality issues going from one bed length to the other for your 2015 Toyota Tundra. If you were towing a fifth wheel trailer like with the part # RP30081 then a longer truck bed is definitely preferred as it allow better turning clearances without hitting the cab of the truck.

  • Will Suspension Enhancement Be Needed On 2015 Ford F-250 Towing 40 Ft Fifth Wheel Trailer
    The towing weight capacity of your new truck will depend on the equipment you have installed. The 2015 Ford F-250 has a GCWR between 19,000 and 23,500 lbs, depending on the equipment your truck has. GCWR is the combined weight of your vehicle with cargo and passengers added to the weight of the fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer. From my research I found that a 40 ft Sierra trailer weighs about 11,500 lbs dry weight. I found there are 2 length beds available for the 2015 F-250. Some...

  • Possible Causes For 5th Wheel Trailer Chucking and Movement During Starts and Stops
    It sounds like there is one of two possible issues or a combination of issues. First, make sure that you are not high hitched. When connecting the king pin to the hitch, first make sure the head of the hitch is tilted towards the trailer. Then, make sure the bottom of the pin box (not the kingpin) on the trailer is 1/2 inch to 1 inch below the hitch skid plate. The other issue could be that if your king pin of your PS30119 is worn significantly enough, there will be too much play and the...

  • Proper Height Adjustment For Fifth Wheel Hitch On 2002 Dodge Ram Pickup
    I have attached a page from the installation instructions for a fifth wheel hitch you can check out. In the instructions it describes how to line up the trailer with the skid plate on the fifth wheel hitch in the bed of your truck. You will want at least 5 or 6 inches between the overhang of the trailer and the bedrails. You also want to make sure your trailer is being towed level.

  • What Height to Set Reese 5th Wheel Hitch in 2014 Dodge with 20 Inch Side Rail Height
    The Reese M5 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # RP30928 is adjustable between 14-18 inches. The hitch has 3 height settings, so I recommend measuring your trailer pin box when the trailer is level from the ground to the pin box at the plate where the king pin attaches to get the height that is ideal. Then you can measure from the ground to the bed height to determine what setting on the hitch will be best when you subtract the bed height measurement from the trailer measurement. If you have...

For safety, you will need at least 6 inches of clearance between the top of the truck side rails and the bottom of the trailer loft. I have included a link to the installation details, in case you no longer have them.
