FAQ's

FAQ's

Can I use the Companion with my short bed truck?

The short answer is yes, many folks towing fifth-wheel trailers with shortbed trucks successfully use the Companion.

There are many factors to consider when addressing the issue of cab clearance. To answer the question for you specific truck and trailer, pay attention to the following:

1.  Pin Box Location - Is the Kingpin even with the front of the trailer, or is it recessed behind the front of the trailer? Some 5th wheel manufacturer's have compensated for the prevalence of shortbed trucks by building extended kingpin boxes.

2.  Type of trailer and shape. Narrower trailers allow a tighter turning radius. Trailers that are built with rounded corners accommodate more cab clearance than squared corners.

3.  Finally, the type of maneuvering that will be required while towing. Do you anticipate lots of sharp turns while towing, or is it only highway driving with little or no backing?

Will the Companion work with my bedliner?

Yes.  However, if you are using a plastic, drop-in bedliner, you will need to cut a hole in the liner large enough for the Companion base to fit in.

Why won't the jaws on my Companion open when I pull the handle to the open position?

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.

What color is the Companion?  I can't tell from the pictures.

The Companion has a medium gray powder-coat finish.

How Does The Companion Install?

One of the reasons the Companion is so innovative is because the mounting system is beneath the bed of the truck, mounted to the frame.  This mounting system includes a four-inch hole in the bed. The Companion base has a square post that fits into this hole.

After the Companion base is set into the mounting hole, a lever in the wheelwell is turned, engaging a pin through the post.  A draw-down bolt on top of the post creates upward pressure on the pin.   A locking bracket holds the bolt in place. 

The last step is locking the coupler portion of the hitch on top of the base.

Do I need to use a lube disc with the Companion?

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.

How do I remove my Companion Model 3000 so I can use my truck for other things?

Removing & Reinstalling the Companion Model 3000 If there are two U-bolts attached to the RV post on your Companion base, you have the older model 3000. Uninstalling the hitch is a process of several steps.

1.  Remove the two saddle lock pins holding the RV coupler to the RV pivot arms. The coupler is now sitting loosely on the pivot arms and can be lifted off and set aside using the handles located on either side of the coupler.

2.  Loosen the nuts on the two U-bolts that attach to the RV post.

3.  Loosen the draw-down bolt holding the RV base to the RV post.

4.  Pull the latch pin handle, located in the driver’s side, rear fender and rotate it clockwise until it latches in the out position. The RV base and post can now be lifted from the hitch receiver socket in the bed. The base weighs 98 lbs and can be awkward to handle, so having two people or a mechanic’s lift to do the lifting makes for an easier and safer operation. Once the base has been removed, the Turnoverball can be dropped into the receiver socket. If you want to use your truck for something other than towing, just turn the ball over. Turn the latch pin handle counterclockwise until it engages and you’re ready to go.

When reinstalling your Companion, it’s important that the steps are conducted in the proper order .

1.  Make sure the latch pin in the wheel well is pulled out and locked in the out position. Place the Companion base back in the truck bed, making sure the post slides all the way into the hitch receiver socket. Engage the latch pin by rotating the handle counterclockwise.

2.  Tighten the draw-down bolt in the top of the post to 40 ft-lb with a torque wrench.

3.  Next, tighten the nuts on the two U-bolts to 80 ft-lb each. It is very important that the draw-down bolt is tightened before the U-bolts are tightened. Also, you should not be able to disengage the latch pin in the wheel well when the base is installed correctly.

4.  Lubricate the polyurethane bushings on the pivot arms with high grade lithium grease. Set the coupler on the pivot arms and replace the lock pins through the RV saddle, making sure to insert the hairpins through the holes in the end of the pins. The coupler should rock freely on the pivot arms. Your Companion is now ready to use. If you need more information go to: www.turnoverball.com. Go to RV Hitches. On the Companion page, click on the Instructions Tab for further information.

How do I remove my Companion Model 3500 so I can use my truck for other things?

Removing & Reinstalling The Companion Model 3500 If you have the newer model 3500 Companion, the process is a bit quicker because there are no U-bolts.

1.  Remove the two saddle lock pins holding the RV coupler to the RV pivot arms. The coupler is now sitting loosely on the pivot arms and can be lifted off and set aside using the handles located on either side of the coupler. When the handles are lifted, they unlock the coupler from the pivot arms.

2.  Swivel the locking bracket on the draw-down bolt out of the way and loosen the bolt.

3.  Pull the latch pin handle, located in the driver’s side, rear fender and rotate it clockwise until it latches out. The RV base, with the post attached, can now be lifted out of the hitch socket. The base of the 3500 weighs 129 lbs and can be awkward to handle, so having two people or a mechanic’s lift to lift it up and out of the bed makes for an easier and safer operation. Once the base has been removed, the Turnoverball can be dropped into the receiver socket. If you want to use your truck for something other than towing, just invert the ball to plug the hole. Turn the latch pin handle counterclockwise until it engages and you’re ready to go.

To reinstall your Companion follow these steps.

1.  Make sure the latch pin in the wheel well is pulled out and locked in the out position. Place the Companion base back in the truck bed, placing the post in the hitch receiver socket. Engage the latch pin by rotating the handle counter clockwise.

2.  Tighten the draw-down bolt in the top of the post to 60 ft-lb with a torque wrench. Make sure to lock the draw down bolt in place by swiveling the locking bracket over the head of the bolt. You should not be able to disengage the latch pin in the wheel well when the base is installed correctly.

3.  Lubricate the polyurethane bushings on the pivot arms with high grade lithium grease. Set the coupler on the pivot arms and replace the lock pins through the RV saddle, making sure to insert the hairpins through the holes in the end of the pins. The coupler should rock freely on the pivot arms. Your Companion is now ready to use. If you need more information go to: www.turnoverball.com. Go to RV Hitches.
