Review of the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter


Today we're going to review part number RP30156. This is the Reese Elite Series Underbed Rail Adapter for standard fifth wheel trailer hitches. This part is designed to work with an already installed Reese Signature Series Fifth Wheel Underbody kit. You can see we have four pucks installed here. You see on this particular vehicle, we have them sit inside of the bed liner as well. Typically you would have to make a large cut out for it.

However in this truck and this part, we we're able to just get away with just four small holes and it sits on top of the bed liner, with plenty of clearance. Once it's assembled, it's very easy to install. Just make sure these handles are pointing towards the center, and when they're locked you can see how this turns facing to the puck that's installed in the truck. Just lay it into place, and then make sure these handles are open all the way, to make sure that it's set into place. Then push the handles in. There should be some resistance as you push it in.

Once it's in place, use the snap rings to help lock it. You could also use your favorite padlock if you want to. When you assemble this, it's a good idea to get access to the jam nut right here to help make sure everything is tightened down properly. The part number for the wrench we're using is 58276. With our Underbed Rail Adapter installed, let's go ahead and put the fifth wheel hitch into place.

After we put our fifth wheel hitch into place, we'll go ahead and install the pins and clips. So our hitch will mount up to our adapter plate just like it would if it had rails already installed in the bed going across. That will finish it for review of part number RP30156 from Reese.
