I like the larger 12" disk. As with everything I have ordered from etrailer superb shipping and customer service.




by:

What a sexy ring. Etrailer nails it again!!! Your costumer service is 1000% better than the other site named after the South American jungle. Fits my 2021 Jayco North Point perfectly.




by:

Very pleased with order. Arrived in a timely manner and was fairly easy to assemble by myself.




by:

Not sure what changed that it took 5 days to pack and ship with everything in stock. All my other orders were less than 48 hours to ship. when finally shipped everything came through fine.


Comments
Works great just got a new truck with factory hitch so last of the greasy hands hooking up are over!

Installed easy, no grease, no mess, no fuss. No binding going down the road and not a mark on the 5th wheel plate after a 200 mile tow.


Comments

I love this lube plate, bought the 1st one I’m so impressed with it I purchased a 2nd one just to have on hand. Etrailer is always on time shipping my orders,taking care and doing follow up checks to see if everything went well.


Comments
My lube plate works great,don’t see myself being without one, so much neater and cleaner without grease being smeared all over and getting all over everything !!

This fit our 2016 F250 perfectly. One suggestion for those installing it themselves would be to leave the rail bolts a little loose and install the 5th wheel. This will allow you to adjust out some of the fore and aft play out of the 5th wheel before tightening everything down.




by:

Performs well.




by:

Howdy Steve, yip it's workin on a year from when I came to your shops and got several products from etrailer. Everything, the Firestone air bags, HD air compressor system, Reese fifth wheel deck and Rock Tamer flaps. Your shop installed all this for me, a very clean good job, thanks. Thanks a lot for being great to work with. Thanks etrailer!! Bean from Alaska.




by:

Excellent product and customer service! Thank you.




by:

Works great,no mess.




by:

Works very well. You put this between your fifth wheel plate, and trailer hitch for lubrication without grease. I have found if you leave your trailer unhitched for any length of time, the grease on your plate, as well as trailer attracts dirt/dust. This is designed to work 'dry', so dust doesn't collect. In sandy soil, the dirt the grease collects acts as sandpaper, wearing things out quickly. This prevents that. Fits snugly on the kingpin of your trailer. You have to kind of tap it up into place, but once there, it seems to stay, at least so far. This one is sized for RV trailers or a gooseneck trailer with a 5th wheel kingpin installed. For a semi, you would need a bigger one.




by:

The lube plate works as advertised. I have only used it once so I am only giving it a 4 star rating at this time. I'm not sure at this time how long it will wear. Everything is nice and neat with no greasy mess anywhere. Good price.


Comments
Update: I have since bought a new 5th wheel RV and the first thing I did was transfer the lube plate over to the new RV on the dealers lot. Still fit perfectly and looks as good as the day I originally installed it. I will not give it a 5 STAR Rating. *****

The lube plate arrived within a couple of days after ordering. It slipped right over the 5th wheel hitch and snapped into place. I'm so happy that there will be no more grease stains applied to my clothing every time I accidentally rub up against the pin or 5th wheel plate. Great product!




by:

It installed in a snap, seriously. Just remove it from the package and snap onto the pin. It's that easy.
As for how it performs, it makes locking the pin into the hitch jaw much smoother and it prevents marring the hitch head and pin box.




by:

The Reese lube plate is what was listed as suggested for the hitch we bought for our truck. It arrived in great condition...large box was a bit of an overkill but appreciated for protection of the plate itself. Took A LONG TIME to arrive. Not sure if the slow shipping was winter weather related or if that's just SOP for this company. Will order again in the future if needed items are available.




by:

Was very easy to install. Looks great. Instructions were simple to follow.

No Problems, stays with camper every time

by:

Great product to put on the pin of your 5th wheel. No greasy mess on the hitch plate. Very reasonable in price and after 1200 + miles towing shows very little wear. Thanks




by:

Was needing larger Lube plate and found it here at etrailer. Perfect product and shipping was extremely fast. Will buy from here again.


Comments
Lube plate still functioning well and working good!

Reese 12" lube plate.I have used the Reese lube plate before on previously owned 5th wheels and had great sucess. The lube plate is easy to install and eliminates the mess associated with greasing the top of the wheel wheel hitch.




by:

The 12" diameter lube plate is perfect for my 5th wheel setup. The plate was add to the 5th wheel connecting pin on my rig by using the open end of a funnel to hold the plate while striking upward with a rubber mallet to push the plate in place. The center of the plate is tight enough to hold the plate in place.




by:

This is the second Trailair hitch I have purchased. Fast shipping and easy to install on our new DRV Fullhouse JX390. Much better than the Mor-Ryde hitch DRV uses. Now no bounce in the truck on rough roads.




by:

Has to be removed when using stabilizing tripod.After only a few uses will not stay on king pin. Affects connecting RV to hitch..




by:

Works great.




by:

Great source to purchase from.I placed my order over the internet. I received the items within a few days of my order via UPS. This is the third or forth item I've ordered from etrailer.com. I've been very satisfied with the wide variety of accessories they offer and their shipping.

I highly recommend using etrailer.com as a source to purchase your RV accessories.
