    In this video we showcase the Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection Hitch that we use for our Grand Design Reflection 303RLS and we previously used for our Columbus 320RS for over a year and 20 states. It has not let us down and it is a mere 35 lbs that even Dan can pick up!
    We show you how to install and remove the hitch from our Ram puck system and also how to remove and install the coupler to the kingpin.

    Our Inception:
    We downsized from a three bedroom house in November 2017 to a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind Class A. We dubbed her Southwind Sally. We did some minor renovations with paint and adding new window treatments. In December 2018 we purchased our fifth wheel. It is a 2014 Forest River Columbus 320 RS by Palomino. In February 2020 we hit the road before the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdowns started.
    Those lockdowns forced us to hold up at the Tinker, AFB FamCamp in Oklahoma until May. We hit the road again traveling to Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana (where we had floor work done on the Columbus), Ohio and Michigan. We decided we were going to try and make it to Colorado to see the sights, and made our way there. This is when we decided to create our channel.
    We have been watching our favorite RUplayers channels for years and decided maybe we should start to capture our own adventures. That decision produced our channel Compass Roadz and our first video.

Good video guys! As you know I’ve been using that hitch for over two years full timing now, towing 17k pounds with about 14k miles on the hitch. No issues. 👍🏼

It’s a great hitch that gets a bad rap by a few in our opinion. Every issue we had was because of us not the hitch. We absolutely recommend.

@Compass Roadz Kevin and Dan no issues with the hitch at all. The only scary thing was the first time we pulled out of the Camping World and experienced some chunking, but we have had no issues with it after a minor adjustment.

What is the measurement from the truck bed to the top of your bed cover rails? I have a RAM 3500 with a roll up bed cover and have started using the Andersen hitch with the ball in the highest position. I see you use the center position which is where I want to be but am not sure it will clear the bed cover rail for uneven road conditions.

@Compass Roadz Thanks. My 2021 Ram with the spray in bedliner is 21.5" from the bed to the top of the bed cover rail so maybe I should stay in the highest position for the Andersen ball.

We have a 2019 Ram 3500 Tradesmen with bed liner. The measurement from the floor to the top of the side rails is 20.5”. The center position for us works fine although there was a park I had to go off the road down a deep incline to back the trailer into a spot and the incline was so deep the 5th wheel trailer did crunch a section of the side rail and did a bit of damage but that was because of the slope off the road. Hope this helps.

We bought it at Northern Tool. It did come in a kit of various sizes.

Decent video but why do so many people feel that a double click on the torque wrench is the correct way to do things? I've been an aircraft mechanic for over 40 years and ran a calibration lab for a few years. Even during my basic training we were taught to trust the wrench and stop after only one click. One question: Your video said the 4 bolts were torx head but I was told they were 1/4" hex head. Which is correct?

@John Hartmangruber as far as I know the AF doesn’t train that. It was just how I did things.

@Compass Roadz Thanks. Must be the difference between AF and Navy training.

The set screws for the coupler are 1/4” hex head. As for double click of torque wrench it is just a habit for me (Kevin). I even go back around after all four are torqued to ensure all is good. Just my habit from 21 years in ACFT MX while in the USAF. Thank you for watching and for the questions. We’ll go back in an update the video to reflect the proper set screw type.

Sorry it took so long. I had to go find the ones we are using to look up the exact set. We purchased these Pittsburg Pro 1/2” Drive SAE Impact Hex Socket Set 8 pc at Harbor Freight for $29.99. Here is their link https://www.harborfreight.com/12-in-drive-sae-impact-hex-socket-set-8-pc-67893.html Thanks for watching.

I just got the 3217 for my 2020 Chevy 2500. Rails are 21”’s from bed, and the 3217 is what Andersen recommended.
