Does your capture plate still have the nylon block?

Mine is cracked and I was going to email Pullrite to have them send me a new one. I think if that block breaks that there would be quite a bit of play in the plate.

HOWEVER, The plate should not move when stopping or starting!

It is there to marry the hitch head to the pinbox ONLY. There should only be force on it when turning (side force). Pin retention is handled completely by the hitch head.

I still have the nylon block intact. As I just traded 5th wheels, I had the dealer put a new plate on. My old plate was a weld on type. Time will tell how long the nylon block lasts.

Hey BombDoc, if the hitch is out of adjustment you will have some play the turntable cam assembly. If so, you will need to adjust the threaded stop assembly. Mine would "clunk" every time I stop/started before I adjusted it. Does your cam assembly move around when your are not towing? If so, that's a good sign you need to adjust it. Takes about 2 minutes.

Thanks for that advice. It does move around some when not towing. I will investigate that tonight! Thanks.

I think after reviewing the literature, my hitch needs some adjusting and that will do the trick! Here is a pic I tried to describe. Four (one on each corner) hex Allen screws hold this plate on. You may be able to see in the pic where the movement back and forth has caused the treads on the Allen screw to dig into the plate. Thanks for all the suggestions!

I installed 1/4 inch spacers on my capture plate sides, now it is rock solid and will not rotate a few degrees, also i have the conversion adapter but since my capture plate is held on with a allen screw it is removable in 2 minutes, plus the nylon block that the screw holds on against the pin box I also made mine out of 1/2 aluminun
