Great Input...

All,

Thanks to ya'll for some great discussions... I din't mean to shake the tree and updet the bee hive but believe me when I have gained a lot from reading your thoughts on this topic...

At this point, I am going to put a regular Reese 16K in the back of my NTM used 2014 Dodge 3500. I will experiment in the OLD LOWE's parking lot and see what I can do. If I have to activate the Reese Revolution I have that ability.

Again, thanks.

Can someone make me a batch of popcorn???

Happy Trails,

B n D

You must be slipping in your old age, Ron. I did almost the exact same thing, but I did it at night, without lights.............and in a snowstorm. I said almost, because I wasn't reading 50 shades of grey, since I was power napping most of the time.

The OP has thanked everyone. Is there really a need for any of the rest of the extreme off-topic comments? We may need to move the jokes (mine included) and the jabs to their own thread.

Tow Vehicle is 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Megacab 4x4 6.7 cummins with short bed. My 2014 Rockwood 8289ws has the Reese Sidewinder on it from the factory and it works very well. No clearance issues and I can turn 90 degrees under it. Only problem I had was mechanics at dealer where I bought were clueless on how it worked and setting it up. When I got home I called Reese and talked to someone in tech support who told me the proper way to set it up with the wedge and also told me they come with a universal wedge (part that goes in the throat of the 5th wheel) but they also sell a specific wedge for the different brands of hitches. I bought a spray can of white lithium grease and have sprayed the throat of the hitch and the plate and jaws plus the sides of the wedge. Made it lock up much easier then when dry. Even all our Frog strangler rains we get in south LA has not washed the grease off.
