That has to be one of the most biased and purely idiotic "research" articles i have seen.
The only people who would even believe that "research" would be somebody looking for confirmation bias.
I mean it really looks like a lot of it was written by a cnn "research" team

Anderson ultimate

We are getting back to fifth wheel from coach and have bought the ultimate hitch. Look on the anderson website and view the video. you want the 3220 and if box has a rotoflex head you need to get the lockout kit also. Anderson also has an easy to remove fitting for the gooseneck hole instead of the regular goosneck ball if you want it it is much easier to use.

I didn't write the article, I just found it doing a Anderson search. Looks like it hit a nerve though.

Solution

CJ,

I was in the same boat till I called Moryde a few days ago, you can't find the part number online presumably because it's a part of a larger kit.

RPB710-009 is actually one of four nylon stability blocks that come with their RPB77-006 Gooseneck Adapter kit that goes for a little more than $200.

Or you can buy replacement parts individually for a little less:
RPB710-009 (stability pad): $28.99 each
UO115-461 (bolt) : $1.09 each
UO117-109 (washer) : $0.29 each

Call them at 574-293-1581 and ask for parts, your only other alternative is to find them on eBay, etc, I found two of the stability blocks there, or buy the whole gooseneck kit.

Per some of the other threads, I don't think Andersen is saying you need the Gooseneck skid plate in the kit, you would actually have to weld a gooseneck tube (or hitch pin) to it anyway. You just need a few parts from the kit, the stability pads (4x) and bolts (4x) to lock out lateral movement since the hitch is not sitting on the fifth wheel skid plate, I suspect the pin has a tendency to lean side to side since the Andersen hitch is sitting on ball vs a skid plate and probably puts some undue lateral forces on the rubber isolation block in the Moryde rubber pin box, presumably increasing the risk of damage and/or premature failure. I haven't installed them yet, but I believe they will allow forward/aft movement while locking out side to side movement. I wish Andersen and/or Moryde would do a better job of explaining this on their website(s).

Hope this helps!

So does the Pullrite Superlite require a special 'kit' like the Andersen Ultimate does?

Texdan,

I don’t know all of the Superglide variants that require this to work with Moryde rubber pin boxes, but here’s the Moryde link to their Pullrite adapter kit RPB 77-001, so you can determine if you need it, the website says: “EASILY INSTALL on any SuperGlide sliding hitch”

https://www.morryde.com/products/pullrite-adaptor-rpb77-001/

Good luck,
