King Pin

My 5th wheel has an adjustable king pin and I want to raise the pin one set of bolt holes. If you have done this, is there any cautions or info I should consider other than it is very heavy?

Heres what I did: Loosen, but don't remove, all 4 bolts. Remove the front 2, put a pin or >smaller< bolt in the holes, remove the back 2, raise the back to the next higher position, re-install the bolts. Raise the front to the next higher position, re-install the bolts. Re-tighten all 4 bolts, REAL tight. (I put 200 ft lbs of torque to mine)

Done Deal. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif

Thomas... Ya, I tried it that way once, it can be done. but yer purdy much stuck.... not much working room around the pin box, front,rear, side to side, head room, cuz yer dealing with the pick-up bed.

I lower/raise mine (others) down to a comfortable (for me) working heigth useing the landing jacks.... then, useing 2 clevis pins (as mentioned), go 'bout the business of doing what needs to be done.
