Review of B and W Accessories and Parts BWRVB3670


Today we're going to take a look at the replacement slider base for the B&W OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch that fits the Ram Towing Prep Package. This has a 20,000 pound weight capacity and this is a custom fit part. It is designed to fit the 2013 and newer Ram trucks with the factory installed Towing Prep Package. Now this part is just a replacement base the fits the B&W Companion OEM Slider 5th Wheel Hitch, Part number BWRVK3670, which we do sale separately on our website. The adjustable pivot arms right here is what lets you mount the hitch head to fit your application. Now the hitch head that goes on here we do sale separately also. It's part number BWRVC3006 and basically when you attach these pivot arms to the slider base, you can raise or lower with three different hitch height settings. When you go to tow your 5th Wheel, you want it to be as level as possible so depending on where you bolt these, there's four rows of holes here in the base so depending on how you bolt these in it'll get you the correct height for you application. The polyurethane bushings right up here is what the hitch head will set on.

On these pivot arms, gives you a nice rattle free ride. Now to install this base into your truck, it's a very quick, simple installation. The base will just drop into the floor receiver pucks that are built into your factory underbed rails and to install them, all you have to do is pull the pin and clip, rotate the handle about a quarter of a turn, you'll do that on each corner, and that'll turn these tabs and now they're ready to be dropped into your truck bed. Once you open them all, drop it into the truck bed, and then just go to each corner, turn that handle back a quarter of a turn, put your pin and clip through there to hold it into place, and that'll lock it into your truck. Simple as that. Now this is a nice grade powder coat steel, which is corrosion resistant. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on this, the gross towing weight capacity is 20,000 pounds, the vertical load limit is 5,000 pounds, and the travel on this slider is 12 inches front to back and I just want to show you how that operates. So once again you have your hitch head on here and when you're hooked up, right now it's locked in the towing position which means it's closest to the cab of the tow vehicle, so if you get into a position where you need to make some tight turns like in a campground, you want to unlock it and let it go back to the maneuvering position. All you have to do is take this handle here, rotate it up to unlock it, that'll release the slider right here, and you'll see that as this moves, as you're moving your truck around, this will move that 12 inches back towards the 5th Wheel and you'll see once it gets all the way to the 12 inches, it automatically lock it into place. Now you're in the maneuvering position and when you're doing maneuvering, you want to get back to towing, you want it to be as close as possible to the truck or the tow vehicle. Again, just push this handle up the unlock it and as you move it, it'll slide right into the towing position and again it automatically locks it into place and you're all ready to go. That should do it for the review on the replacement slider base for the B&W OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch that fits the Ram Towing Prep Package and it has a 20,000 pound weight capacity..
