Review of the Reese Dual Jaw Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch


Today well be reviewing the Reese Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with square tube slider, dual jaw, part number rp30051. The two jaw locking system provides more jaw to kingpin contact than slidebar models creating less rattling and greater security. The head is also a four-way pivoting head which will ease the hookup especially on unlevel ground. The head assembly can tow a gross weight of 16,000 pounds with a vertical load limit of 4,000 pounds. The head sits on a cross member that has a three inch height adjustment capability. Our hitch height will travel from 15 to 18 inches from lowest to highest.

Now lets go ahead and actuate the jaw assembly. Well simply unlock the handle pulling it out to the locked position opening up the two jaws. Then well go ahead and lock the handle by returning it to its original position, locking it into position securing our trailer, then throwing our latch securing the trailer to the head. Our square tube slider provides clearance required for your short bed pickup to turn safely at slow speeds and has a total travel distance of ten inches from front to back for slow speed maneuvers which will prevent the trailer from hitting the cab of your pickup during sharp or slow speed turns. To utilize the slider well simply take the slider handle, rotate it into the unlocked position indicated by our roll pin and then move the slider to the rear of the vehicle relocking the handle into the maneuvered position.

Then once weve completed our slow speed turns and were ready to hit the road, well simply move our handle back into the unlocked position, sliding the head assembly forward back towards the cab and then relocking it into the tow position. And, that does it for our review of the Reese Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with square tube slider, dual jaw, 16,000 pounds, part number rp30051.
