Use of Curt Hitch Stabilizer Strap 18050 on Cedar Creek 5th Wheel Trailer  


Will hurt hitch work on 2018 cedar creek fifth wheel? How would the stabilizer strap attach?


Expert Reply:

Curt's Hitch Stabilizer Strap # 18050 is required for use with some of their hitch receivers to support the hitch-mounted load which helps to reduce its motion as you drive. This helps prevent excessive stress on the receiver tube.

The various Curt brand hitches suitable for installation on an RV are shown on the linked page. These include bumper-mount hitches like # E-100 and frame-mounted hitches like # 13703.

For cases where there is not a handy spot to attach the strap to the RV you can use an alternate item to provide this same hitch support. Similar tie-down strap products like cam buckle straps # EM05729 can also do the same thing. Individual RV set-ups vary so you may need to adapt to your specific trailer's fixtures (such as ladders) to find the best way to support the hitch.

Be sure to only use RV-rated hitch-mount accessories and to confirm with Cedar Creek that your specific RV bumper or frame has the strength required for hitch installation.
