Reese Fifth Wheel 30051 Grease Maintanence Schedule


Please direct me to Lubrication/ Maintenance Instructions for my old Reese 30051. There are no grease fittings to be found. Thank You in advance.

According to the instruction from Reese that found for your hitch: Before each trip, lubricate skid plate surface of the hitch with automotive type chassis grease or use a plastic lube plate to provide a lubricated surface. Use engine oil to lubricate pivot points of moving parts within the hitch.

Plastic lube plates # RP83002 can be used to avoid messy grease. The plastic lube plate must not exceed 3/16 of an inch in thickness to ensure hitch will operate properly. Lube plates must be 10 inches in diameter or larger to properly distribute king pin weight.
