Yep - that puts the upward pressure on the fifth wheel plate without damaging the latch release. Just what's needed for the PullRite hitch, too. Thanks for posting that part.

I find it interesting that B&W makes a device that is used to remove a 5th wheel hitch that takes the place of the king pin.

I set mine between the landing legs of the 5th wheel. Stays out of the weather that way. I use the bed often plus tow a gooseneck. It's a BW so it comes apart in 2 pieces. The plate section sits in my storage compartment.

Sure, you can leave it in the truck bed. Exposed to the weather, not being used, in the way of other loads.

I hang mine from the 5th wheel king pin. Put it back in the truck in the spring.





This is just my T/V have another truck if I need to haul something was just trying to figure out what others did with the hitch for the winter not looming for advice on how to haul something else.......but thanks
My Diesel is a dedicated tow vehicle and sits in the garage when not used for towing. The hitch has been in the bed since the truck was new. Have other trucks for everyday use.

It sits in a corner in the garage out of the weather. I take the head off and move the head and base separately to make it easier. Reese 16k.
