Can Convert a Ball Fifth Wheel Gooseneck Adapter be Used with Reese Sidewinder Pin Box

Question:

I have a 2009 Hearyland Sundance 2800rls. I had to switch to a gooseneck when I bought a new truck with a bw. I am running an anderson offset attached to a reese sidewinder hitch locked in the back. Is this a safe set up?

If you Sidewinder is locked out meaning it can't pivot to either side and essentially works like a standard pin box it can be used with your Convert a Ball adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 but if your Sidewinder is not locked out it would not be a safe setup and you'd need to lock it out before towing.

I attached a picture that shows how the Sidewinders are locked out.

Yes, the # AM3139 would work as well in above mentioned configuration with locking out Sidewinder.
