Review of Fifth Gear Accessories and Parts SWW-06


Today we are going to review part number SWW-06. This is the 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B & W Fifth Wheels. Now this wedge is designed to work with the Sidewinder and 5th Airborne Sidewinder pin boxes. This will replace the universal wedge that comes with the Sidewinder and the 5th Airborne Sidewinder. It is a custom wedge. It is designed specifically to fit the B & W hitches. It's made for the B & W Patriot, which attaches to rails, and the B & W Companion, which is for the Ford and the Ram OEM systems that have the 4-puck attachment. This wedge, when it's installed, will prevent the pivoting at the the fifth-wheel hitch draws.

Basically, when it comes with a nice set of instructions, comes with the 2, 5/8 inch bolts and lock-washers. Basically, when you go to install this, what you want to do is, the narrow end here of the wedge, will point towards the front of the pin box. The recessed part right here is facing down. This will go on to the pin box. Put your bolts up through there. Do the same there, and then you'll go ahead tight those down.

You just snug them, you don't want to tightness then all the way down until you slide your Sidewinder into the hitch itself. Once it's in there, you adjust it correctly and torque it down to the correct specifications. Once that's installed, that'll keep it from rotating at the fifth-wheel head, and it'll rotate where the pin box or the Sidewinder is attached. That should do it for the review on part number SWW-06. This is the 5th Airborne Custom Wedge for B & W Fifth Wheels. .
