Review of Reese Accessories and Parts RP30154


Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Reese fifth wheel rail adaptor for the Ram OEM fifth wheel towing prep package. And this has a 25,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this part'll allow you to use your standard above bed fifth wheel trailer hitch with your Ram factory under bed fifth wheel towing prep package. It'll convert the factory installed under bed mounting kit from Ram to a standard above bed fifth wheel base rails.Now these rails once their installed, are compatible with B and W, Curt, DrawTite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley above bed fifth wheel trailer hitches. This will also work with most industry standard sliders, such as the Reese RP30048, RP30051, RP30092, and RP50024, and also the Curt C16560. Basically, what this does, this'll mount to the OEM pucks, or the sockets that are in your factory under bed system, that are under your truck bed.The unit'll drop into the pucks, and locks into place.

There's no drilling or welding required. Basically, to install them, all you do is pop these pins and clips. There's one here, and one on this side. And then what you'll do is rotate these handles a quarter of a turn out, and when you do that it'll rotate those tabs. And you'll do it on that side also.

And once there open like this, you can drop it right into the pucks that are in your truck bed in the factory system.Once it drops in, just rotate these back. Just like that, til these holes will line up. Take your pins and clips, put them in to lock them into place. And once they're locked into place, that'll keep it locked in to there. And it'll give you the openings for these above base bed rails.

And then your fifth wheel hitch will mount right on top of these rails.Now this adaptor will add about two inches of height to that hitch. So, you might want to allow for that. The finish on this is a black powder coat steel construction. Now, also when you put your fifth wheel in there, you can use the standard pins and clips to hold it in, but they do recommend these heavy duty anchors, which are half inch bolts and nuts. These are required to be used if you're intending to tow over 20,000 pounds.If you go over 20,000, you don't want to use the normal pins and clips, you want to use these.

Again, the application, this is for Ram trucks with the OEM under bed base rails. The maximum capacity on this adaptor is 25,000 pounds. You just want to make sure it's limited to the lowest rated towing component in your system. But that should do it for the review on the Reese fifth wheel rail adaptor for the Ram OEM fifth wheel prep package. And this has a 25,000 pound weight capacity.

Will this work with the Anderson 5th rail hitch?

It does provide the same connection locations that you will need to attach your Andersen Ultimate Connection # AM3200 to the OEM puck system on a Ram pickup.
