The Convert-A-Ball Offset 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 secures to you 5th wheel trailer's king pin with 3 bolts that hold it in place flush against the bottom of the pin box. If you refer to the linked photo you'll see these bolts. I would first make sure this coupler is properly secured to the trailer's king pin.

Next I would check that you have the height adjustment at the correct position that keeps the trailer level when it is hitched. The adapter has a height adjustment range of 4-inches so make sure the height is set so that the level trailer and truck can be coupled.
