To use a Sidewinder pin box with a slider 5th wheel trailer hitch you just have to make sure that the slider stays locked in the towing position at all times. Do not slide it back when using the Sidewinder. Doing so will put extra stress on the truck and trailer.

Also, some 5th wheel trailer hitches cannot be used with a Sidewinder. I have linked a help article that covers this for you.
