Expert Reply:

The universal wedge that comes with your Reese Revolution pin box will work for you to tow your trailer with the Reese OEM 5th Wheel Hitch # RP30918 that you referenced. If you'd like to upgrade from the universal wedge, a custom wedge is available for your pin box and hitch, wedge # RP44FR.

The universal wedge is great if you plan on towing the trailer with different vehicles that have different 5th wheel hitches. When versatility is needed, the universal wedge is the best option.

If you plan on consistently towing your trailer with the same tow vehicle and the # RP30918 hitch, a custom wedge is a great upgrade for the components to best fit together. Since they will fit together better, I recommend going with the custom wedge. The # RP44FR custom wedge is designed to fit the funnel of the Reese hitch better than the universal wedge. I confirmed that this is the correct wedge for the # RP30918 hitch with my contact at Reese.

The installation instructions for the custom wedge # RP44FR are linked for you.
