How Long Will A Fifth Wheel Lube Plate Last


What is the life of 5th wheel lube plate?


Expert Reply:

Depending on a few things combined will determine how long a lube plate will last for you.

A heavy pin weight will cause degradation to happen faster. If you spend more time on dirt roads or in dirty/dusty environments this will all get on the lube plate and the weight of the pin will grind it down.

As long as you are not taking it into dirty areas and are super hard on it, you can expect a lube plate to last about six to eight months. Some people get more time out of them others get less time.

Just make sure you get a plate that matches your 5th wheel head so it can protect it proper.

A few popular ones are the Lube Plate for Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 10" Diameter # RP83002. And the Lube Plate for Elite Series and Reese 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches - 12" Diameter # RP83001
