I had been thinking about it but I just haven't gotten to it yet. I even have a heavy duty bicycle cable wrapped around my propane tanks handles and the cross bar for my landing gear to keep someone from grabbing my tanks.

Thanks for posting!

I drilled out the holes for the hitch head pins for the small locks and also the larger locks at two corners where it locks to the pucks. The handle lock hole was large enough.

People give me crap about locking things but I don't have things walk away or have my handle pulled and drive off and have the RV smash down on my truck!

My new 5er came with a Reese Revolution pin box. I called Reese customer service to ask what they suggested for a hitch. Here's the scoop.
1. You do NOT need a sliding hitch with a Revolution/Sidewinder.
2. The wedge that is included with the pin box is set for a long bed truck and it must be installed according to directions for a short bed truck. Search Reese Revolution wedge install on Youtube. Easy peezy.
3. I purchased the Reese 16k pro on Amazon and 90 degree turns with my 2015 F250 6.5 bed are no problem whatsoever! Pulled it home 389 miles with zero problems.
4. A lube plate will NOT WORK with a Revolution pin box just use spray on lithium grease as per customer service. Apparently the plate does not allow it to couple properly.

Hope this info helps.

I am starting my 4th season with my Sidewinder pin box and thanks to you, I now know how to check the wedge setup.
BTW, the only difference between long and short box set up is whether to lock out the Sidewinder function for the long box, but there is no reason to do it as it functions the same for either.
