Yes, since all of our hitches in the Companion line use the same coupler head, you may purchase the base that works best for you. Depending on your needs, we offer both stationary and slider versions for the Ram, GM and Ford factory prep packages, as well as the Flat Bed and single point attachment Companion that mount into the Turnoverball.
All of B&W's 5th wheel hitches utilize a cam action release for the jaws. When the latch handle is secured in the closed position, the jaws will stay locked around the kingpin of your trailer for towing. When the latch handle is moved to the open position, the tension on the jaws is released, even though they may not visibly pop open. If your truck and trailer are on uneven ground, there may be a slight bind between the jaws and trailer kingpin. This is normal. With the cam mechanism open, there is a nothing holding the jaws together. Ensure that the handle pin is in place, keeping the handle in the locked open position, then simply pull forward. The jaws will open and you'll be unhitched from your trailer.
You will definitely want to know what your truck's rating is before undertaking any towing activity. While we would love to be able to help our customers with those figures, they vary not only based on Make, Model and Year, but also things like Engine Size, Type of Transmission and even Gear to Axle Ratios. Luckily, there are several places to learn about your truck's tow rating.
1. Check your owner's manual. Most owner's manuals will have something regarding a tow rating, even for passenger cars. What you may find is that some manufacturers will provide extensive information on important ratings, while other provide a bare minimum.
2. If your owner's manual doesn't provide the information you need, or if what is in there proves to be confusing, contact your local truck dealer. They will usually have that information readily available, or will be able to find it quickly. Having your VIN number handy will help this process along.
3. Check the manufacturer's website for the make and model of your truck. If you're looking at buying a new truck, most manufacturer's websites will offer at least some figures. If you still can't find the perinent information on your own, usually there will be combination of e-mail, telephone and live chat options where you can hopefully get a direct answer.
4. There are numerous online sites with detailed information. Here is one site that offers a good range of informaiton. It includes PDF copies of past issues of Trailer Like magazine. Locate your year, make and model of your vehicle to find tow rating, along with other helpful ratings. A website search will provide other sources of informaiton. www.trailerlife.com/trailer-towing-guides
You do not need a Teflon lube disc when pulling your RV. Using a lube disc is basically a matter of preference. Some people find that a disc wears quickly and doesn't last very long. A lube disc that is too thick can prevent the kingpin from setting properly in the hitch jaws. The other option is to simply apply an automotive type chassis grease to the top plate of the hitch.
