I'm Growing Up

Today I had our dealer remove our Superglide Hitch from our 2011 truck we are trading it in, we should have the new truck in about a week. Moving from a 2011 3500CC SB Silverado to a 2016 GMC 3500 Denali full bed. Our Superglide served us well over 10 years across two different trucks. Now it is time to move on but we will stay with Pullrite, a Super Fifth 20K hitch with ISR (industry standard rails. The reason we are staying with Pullrite is the locking mechanism on the hitch. We just love it. After 10 years of use our dealer is actually buying it back for some $$ to put on the new Super Fifth 20K hitch. Its like saying goodbye to a good friend!

RE: Pullrite Super 5th Hitch and Lube Plate

That's why I posted this, one tech at Pullrite said it was OK, still on a different call another tech stated that they don't recommend it, that's why I wanted some real world experience. Thanks

Pullrite Super 5th Hitch and Lube Plate

Does anyone who uses a Pullrite Super 5th (not the slider hitch) use a lube plate between the pin box and the face plate of the hitch? We are moving to the Super 5th from a Superglide because of a different tow vehicle. When I asked customer service at Pullrite one person said yes it was OK another guys says no they don't recommend it. They can't have it both ways.

Removal of SuperGlide Capture Plate from Morryde Pin Box

Has anyone remove the special capture plate that is used on the Morryde Pin box to work with the Superglide hitch? The reason I ask is we are moving from a short bed to a full bed with a new Pullrite Super Fifth Hitch that does not require it anymore. Looks like the four corner bolts are removed two in front and two in back and the capture plate drops off. The four bolts look like they screw into the larger rod, one on each side. When you remove the four external bolts does that rod become free or spin or what? Just wondering what to expect if I tackle it myself. Any info would be appreciated.

Looking dor someone with 2015/16 GMC Sierra Long Box

Want to talk to anyone who has a 2015/2016 GMC Sierra long box with a 20K or larger Pullrite Super 5th hitch (not a Super Glide) for a few questions. Thanks

RE: Moving from Short bed to Long be tow vwhicle.

I consider myself a pretty good driver, so the dealer and I brought the dully home. Mathematically I should have been able to get it in with only 2 inches on each side. Got it in took about 10 minutes. I was very nervous about doing this, got it out with a scratch. Next we repeated the experiment with the Denali full bed. Went in as easy as my short bed. Had enough room in front and back, needless to say I was very pleased. If this would have not worked we wouldn't have bothered to upgrade. If we fulltimed I would most definitely have a dully. This was the first time I had ever driven a dully, what a great feeling of stability in the back (I am not saying our SRW isn't good our Alaska trip proved this!). Merry Christmas to all!

RE: Moving from Short bed to Long be tow vwhicle.

I cannot fit a dully in my garage and we thought it was time to upgrade. We are moving from a 2011 3500 SB CC Silverado to a 2016 GMC Denali full bed CC. More space in the bed will be nice. Do we have to no, but since we spend about 4 to 5 months on the road why not enjoy it as much as possible. Merry Christmas to all!

Moving from Short bed to Long be tow vwhicle.

After 10 years of very successful towing our 5th wheel with a short bed truck with a Pullrite slider hitch we are getting a full bed and staying with Pullrite but not their slider it will be a Super 5th 20K. Couple questions will my backing up be different with this setup? And please tell me that with a full bed there is much less chance of hitting the cab on a severe jack knife that with the short bed. And information will be appreciated. Merry Christmas!

RE: SRW 3500 2WD vs 4WD

Just purchasing a 2016 GMC with 4WD. Trading off a 4WD, salesman said that in our area a truck without 4WD is not marketable. That said who ever pulls in 4WD?

Getting a new tow vehicle MAYBE

We have a Silverado right now and thinking of upgrading. When you go to a GMC from a Silverado are you getting your monies worth or is it all eyewash?

Two Questions for a Potential New Tow Vehicle

When I had our current tow vehicle built I ordered Dual 150amp alternators. We are thinking about a new tow vehicle and I have the option for the same dual alternators of 1 250amp alternator. Which is better for 5th wheeling and why? Also I have the option of having the truck built with a 20k or 24k Curt Hitch already installed at delivery. Anyone have any experience with the Curt 5th wheel hitches? Merry Christmas

Branson, Mo Suggestions Please

For those of you who actually have camped in or around Branson, MO can you suggest a CG that can handle a 40' fifth wheel safely? We will passing through the area this spring and thought we would stop if I could find a CG that is acceptable. A nice big pull through would be great. Any ideas? Thanks

RE: leveling systems for fifth wheelers

Our 2005 Montana did not have the Lippert LevelUp system, but our 2015 does. It is amazing to watch the trailer dance from front to back and then side to side leveling itself. This came standard on our new Montana.

Best Way to Change Tire

I found that on our new 5'er we have some fancy Morryde suspension on the trailer that allows for more up and down movement or something like that. My question has two parts. If you need to change the tire can it be done while still connected to the truck? And second am I correct that you want to get the jack as close to the axle hopefully on the frame rail but not on the axle itself? Am I correct? I was told that when I would jack the trailer for the tire change my suspension will hang a little more causing me to raise the trailer more than usual. Can anyone give me some background on this subject. I do have a 20ton jack and some extra boards to get elevation of the trailer. Thanks

Lippert 6 point LevelUp System and cold weather storage

I am new to this system, my 05 5'er did not have the LevelUp System which is really amazing. That being said I called Lippert about cold weather storage this morning and they said to exercise it periodically thought the winter. I was surprised at this because you don't operate the slides during the winter. I already have the battery out and said good night to the trailer till spring. Would like to hear from folks who lives in the northern areas of the country if they do this on their LevelUp system? Thanks!

RE: Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

Can anyone recommend a real good trickle charger for my trailer battery. Thanks

RE: Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

So do I understand this right, the best is to disconnect the battery and use a battery tender while the battery is still in the trailer? Thanks
