Reese Revolution

Our new 5th wheel has the Reese Revolution and in the owners manual, it says not to use a lube plate for the sidewinder. It's a generic manual for several types. I guess my question is, can you use a lube plate on a Revolution?

I do with no problems. I am wondering about their reasoning behind this.

If you are activating the Reese Revolution hitch, you don't need it and you could not get it on with the wedge in place. If you are not using the Reese Revolution hitch, you could use one. Why not, then it is just a regular fifth wheel hitch.

When I had a Sidewinder on the old 5ver, I just sprayed lithium grease on the hitch to make it slide in easier. Nothing is moving at the hitch and a lube plate might give you less bite on the steel wedge the locks into the hitch.

I have a long bed, so I will be using it as a regular hitch. I can see not have enough bite if using that feature. Thanks.

If you are not activating the pin box, then by all means use a lube plate. It will work just as a regular pin box.
