Glenn, as an aside, I put my hitch pins (not the rail pins) reversed to yours so the cotter keys are accessible from the outside. The pins slide in under the hitch so that I can remove the hitch using the 5th wheel's landing gear. (Since I put it in and take it out by myself.) It is like using the 5th wheel as a crane.

Once I lift the black part up, I drive out from under the 5th wheel and then can remove the rails and stubs easily. I reverse the procedure to reinstall the hitch. Once the rails are in place I just back under the 5th wheel and drop the hitch on the rails. I use a pry bar to shift the hitch left and right to line up the holes; fish the pins in; then cotter key from the outside. I would get all greasy trying to put the cotter keys on the pins from the inside and trying to line up the rails on the studs using the back under method would be impossible.
