Mounting Reese Sidewinder Pin Box on Trailer


I installed a sidewinder on my fabex 500 series pin box but it said in the instructions use only one row to bolt. My question is, do i use the top row or the bottom row?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by only using only one row of bolt holes when installing the Reese Sidewinder King Pin # RP61410 in place of the Fabex 500 on your trailer. I looked through the installation instructions and it recommends taking note of the number of bolts that were used to attach the factory pin box and use at least this many when installing the Sidewinder turret.

I simply recommend bolting up the Sidewinder in the same manner that the Fabex unit was mounted to ensure proper operation and capacity.
