Troubleshooting Turret Bolts of Sidewinder Coming Loose


Recently purchased a Reese airborne prem. 5th wheel pinbox with sidewinder and turrent from you . Perfect fit The only problem is the 4 bolts in the turrent continue to loosen even after torqued to the 45 ft-lb. Any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

When you tightened the 4 turret bolts did you use the included lock washers? Lock washers should prevent the bolts from backing out and if you didn't use them they would back out much easier.

You can try thread locker like Loc Tite # LT37420.
