Agree, but the only thing the wedge does is stop the pin box from turning. As stated, I made my own just because I didn't like the looks of the pieced together wedge with slots that Reese furnished. With the round shape of the Reese wedge and slots, it will move eventually. You made a wise choice.

arthmary, why do you need the wedge? I'm pulling a 2013 Flagstaff 5th wheel with a 2012 f250 with the B & W Companion hitch, and it does fine.

Evidently he wants to activate the Revolution hitch which requires the pin to not swivel, thus the wedge.

Which was my point.
The trailer can be used with hitch de-activated "without wedges" but op would have to pay extra attention when making very sharp turns..

Unlike someone else on this forum R.B.

agreed, need to be cautious on sharp turns, but I think that applies to everyone. I know I have made 90į turns while backing, no problem with clearance, just hard on trailer.

The hitch currently is set up as standard but I like the peace of mind of making sure the trailer is not going to hit the cab, so will have the new specific wedge installed next Friday on our way up north.

Let us know how it works for you, and which wedge you use.
