Which cable length should be used for a 5th wheel? 4 feet or 6 feet?

Thanks!

“Depends”

Get the 6’ and be done with it.

It is sort of sad/funny when you see people hooking the breakaway line to the 5er's hitch head in the truck. Use one of the eye-pads in the truck bed.

The breakaway line should be the longest, last to go with a TT. First it will be off the ball and on the chains. Still have brakes with 7-pin. You don't want the breakaway to pull just yet. Only if the chains break loose.

Christmas eve, went to Camping World, and walked out a hundred dollars poorer [emoticon]

Did get the curly cable for the trailer, and a bunch of other stuff.

And why was this moved to Tech?
