I use my safety brake cable and it is hooked up to the u shaped pins in the floor of my bed that is bolted to the frame of my truck.
I have a B & W fifth wheel hitch that also converts to a gooseneck. The safety chains snap onto the two u shaped pins from the floor.
I know that if the gooseneck hitch failed, the trailer would hopefully brake itself with the brake cable but the trailer would stay attached to my truck via the safety chains and not hurt or kill anybody else.
That is what I was wandering with the fifth wheel kingpin hitch. If the hitch or kingpin ever broke, it would seperate from my truck, the brake cable would apply the brakes to the trailer, but it would not be attached in any way to my truck.
I am just thinking about safety while towing.
Would it hurt anything if I put a set of safety cables on the kingpin hitch ? I know it would do some serious damage to the bed of my truck, but just trying to think of safety.
