ABS King Pin Cover

So my dealer is trying to tell me that manufacturers are "hit and miss" about including this ABS King Pin Cover on 5th wheels, and trying to claim mine wasn't made with one when it was clearly installed at some point in time as there is rusted screw holes from when it was installed, also its listed as a standard item on Prime Time's website. I think that either their transporter or the dealer removed it for some reason and is trying to refuse replacing it.

Question is did your 5th wheel come with this ABS cover for the kin pin box?

It likely came with one. What I found was on some hitches they would snag and crack. Mine did on my Pullrite hitch (I have a sanibel), it was replaced under warranty and the dealer properly trimmed it. I would lean on them to replace it if you want the unit with one.

My unit is already bought and financed so unfortunately can't use it as a deal breaker item, I overlooked it during PDI. The dealer is claiming the trailer probably never had one, however I would dispute that fact. Pretty much said if they look at the photos they took when they posted it online and it doesn't have it, that I would have to purchase one. However being it a standard item I think they should have disputed it with either Prime Time or the shipper if it showed up on their lot missing it.

It is the factory pin box, hasn't been replaced.

Prime Time

I have a 2015 Prime Time Crusader 315RST and it came with the ABS cover. I believe you can find the covers on Lippert Components web site but I have to think your coach came with the cover. If the dealer will not help I would contact Forest River directly. Just my 2 cents.

I have a 2014 Sabre that came with the pin box cover standard. Mine is being replaced under warranty by the dealer because of a 4" crack in it. The screws were loose and two were missing so the wind moved it around and cracked it. My dealer didn''t balk at all about replacing it. I would keep pressuring them or like Silverado said contact forest river directly.
