Can a Slider Hitch be Used with a Reese Revolution Sidewinder Pin Box


I have a valley 16K pull max with slider. I am buying a new 5th wheel trailer that has a reese revolution pin box that swivels so it will turn 90 degrees without having to slide. Valley said I should not use the slider with this, but should change the 5th wheel plate mounting brackets to the regular ones. Do you sell them separate so I dont have to buy the whole 5th wheel assembly. If so how much are they. Thank you


Expert Reply:

When you tow a trailer with a Reese Revolution or Sidewinder you would not need to use a slider hitch since the pin box would allow for the tight turns without interference. Ideally you use a stationary hitch, but you CAN use a slider hitch with a RR or Sidewinder. You just would have to leave it in in the slid forward position at all times.

Since most likely you have a Husky 16 hitch (Husky bought Valley), you could upgrade the legs to # HT31314 as long as it is the Silver Series hitch. But, you don't have to unless you really just want to get rid of the slider.
