Teflon plate on hitch, not kingpin
I have the 10 inch round teflon disk for my 5th wheel. I am on my second one in the last year. The first one I bought wouldn't stay on the camper, each time I would un-hitch, it fell, it seemed warped and I couldn't put it back on until we were done camping for the weekend. If I tried, it was so loose and would just fall off. By the time it sat all weekend, it would go on again, and then repeat.
I bought a new teflon disk... actually 2 of them as I was worried about loosing one at the campground, so I wanted a spare. This one has lasted me substantially longer, probably since last November, but it's starting to show the same symptoms. When I un-hitch, I have a 50/50 chance it will fall in the bed of the truck. Whether it does or not, it's very warped.
I saw on the internet a picture of a hitch where the teflon plates were mounted right on the hitch. That sounds like a better solution, but I can't find info anywhere. Does anyone here know what I am speaking of, and where they can be found? I am using a Reese 16K double pivot (if I'm explaining it right) 5th wheel hitch.
Thanks for the knowledge.
