5r hitch

What is your opinion on 5th wheel hitches. Is there a benefit to having slider hitch for weight distribution etc.

No

Pulling a 5th wheel in the extended slide position would hurt your weight distribution as it would put the king pin farther back on the truck from the axle making the truck sag more.

I would think there is a warning not to do it ... I have read anyone that uses slider always locks back in place ... plus pin weight should be over the axles ... have never heard of anyone steer axle heavy after hooking up ??? anyone anyone ???
