Lube Plate Compatibility With Demco 21K Autoslide 5TH Wheel Hitch and Lippert Rhino Box Adapter


I have a Demco 21k Autoslider and planned on using lube plates to keep things clean and moving well, but my 5th has a Rhino pin box. I added the adapter plate, but now thinking there isn’t enough space for lube plate. What is the recommendation with lube plate for those with the Rhino pin box adapter mounted?


Expert Reply:

Demco recommends using a 3/16" or thinner Lube Plate # 16721 with their Autoslide 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # DM8550035. With the addition of the Demco Autoslide Locking Plate for Lippert Rhino Pin Boxes # DM76FR you have I recommend using a dry lube on the mating surfaces to reduce wear. A good silicone dry lube like the Spray # RM-747 will not attract and hold dirt like grease.
