When should you replace your Fifth Wheel Coupling?
One of the core ways that you can improve the longevity of your fifth wheel is to make sure that you are conscientious when coupling and uncoupling your trailer. Ensuring that your driver performs out of cabin checks to the coupling prior to engaging can mitigate unnecessary damage.
However, as with all mechanical elements in transportation and haulage, time and repetition will deteriorate the quality and performance of your equipment. There are a number of visible and functional indicators that you need to replace your fifth wheel coupling, such as:
Gapping between the fifth wheel and the underside of the trailer
The locking pin sliding or not engaging fully
General visible signs of excessive wearing on and around the fifth wheel
