Recommended Wear Plate for Demco HiJacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch


I recently purchased this Demco 18K hitch and recall reading somewhere that a thin nylon? plastic wear disc/plate is recommended to be placed between the king pin and the hitch. Can you provide a part number for the appropriate plastic wear disc/plate? Thank you.

The instructions for HiJacker 5th wheel trailer hitch # DM8550034, linked for reference, read "It is recommended to use grease or a 3/16” maximum Teflon disc to help prevent wear on top plate

Curt lube plate # 16721 is 3/16 inches thick so it could be used.
