Hey all, I am going to try to make this question as easy to understand as possible. It does t seem that I can post a picture here to get any assistance but I’ll do my best. In the center of my fifth wheel hitch there is a piece of metal that runs diagonal , just under where the kingpin would be sitting. What is that for and what is it called? Feel free to email me at: juhrig728@gmail.com and I’ll be able to send a picture of what I am talking about, just in case I’m not making this easy to understand. Thank you.

Have no clue without a picture. Look in the forum help and support link top right for how to post pictures.

I believe he referring to the arm that opens up the "claws" on the opposite side of the pull mechanism.

If you can post the make and model number of the hitch someone can probably dig up a full parts diagram with descriptions.

If attached to bottom of Pin Box it could be a capture plate with wedge for a SuperGlide Hitch or a wedge block for a Sidewinder/Revolution pin box.


Is it time for your medication or mine?
