Frequently Asked Questions

I have a short bed truck. Will the Turnoverball work with short beds? Even 5' 6" beds?

As we all know, short bed trucks have become very popular trailer towing vehicles.  The short answer is, "yes, the Turnoverball can be installed on every full-sized truck on the market."  That said, it is very important that turning clearance is considered for every truck and trailer combination that will be used.  

B&W offers a 4-inch extender that plugs into the receiver socket of the Turnoverball and moves the pivot point 4 inches rearward.

B&W also offers the Extend-A-Goose Coupler which offsets your trailer 10".

I want to get a spray in bed liner. Should I do it before or after I have the Turnoverball installed?

Either way works fine.  If you have the spray in liner done after the Turnoverball is installed, you have the advantage of the liner covering the cut edges of the hole in the bed. 

How often do I need to grease my Turnoverball?

The great thing about having a square base in a round hole is that the dirt has a place to go.  How much grease is needed is a function of how much it is used and how dirty the environment.  If you notice that the grease coating on your ball is gone, it's probably time to apply more! 

Will the Turnoverball work with a Body Lift or Suspension Lift?

The Turnoverball will work with a Suspension Lift, but not with a Body Lift.  In order for our hitch to work properly, the distance between the bed and the frame must be maintained.  A body lift separates these components.

Can I take my Turnoverball off my old Ford and put it on a Dodge? Or Chevy to Dodge?

Our hitches are made to fit a particular year and make of truck and cannot be moved to a different make of truck.  In some cases, a hitch can be moved from an older to a newer truck of the same make.  B&W covers only the first installation under warranty.  Contact our installation department for more information, 1-800-248-6564.

I have seen a lot of products made by other companies that claim to be compatible with yours. Is this okay?

Other companies can manufacture items and even market them to be used with B&W products, but that does not mean that they are endorsed by us or safe to use.  In addition, if these products cause ours to be used outside the 'normal use' of our product then it would void the warranty on ours.

What brand of Airbags work with the Turnoverball?

To the best of our knowledge, Airlift and Firestone build an airbag system that is compatible with the Turnoverball for 2005 and newer trucks.

See Airlift's website at http://www.airliftcompany.com/ .

See Firestone's website at www.firestoneindustrial.com/riderite/ .

I can’t get my handle to stay out and it takes two people to operate, is this how it should work?

 No. The latch pin system is designed to work by pulling the handle firmly outward until the spring is fully compressed, then rotating the handle clockwise about 1/8th of a turn. This locks the handle out so you can then turn the ball over. (See Image 1&2)

If the handle will not lock out using this procedure try troubleshooting with the following steps:

1. Pull the handle out and allow to pop back in 3-4 times to clear any debris from spring.

2.  From under the truck check to ensure latch pin handle is properly bolted to the latch pin. There is a square tab welded to the end of the 5/8" latch pin. This tab should point up towards the bottom of the bed, and the loop of the latch pin handle should be on the cab (front) side of the tab. (See Image 3)

3. After trying the two previous solutions, clip one (and only one) coil off the end of the spring. This may allow the spring to compress enough so the latch is operational.  (see pictures below) 

If you have checked for proper installation and still have a problem, please call our installation department at 1-800-248-6564.

How difficult is the Turnoverball to install? Can I do it myself?

We have engineered the Turnoverball to be installed easily.  Because you don't have to remove the bed, weld, or drill through the frame, the installation basically consists of drilling a four inch hole in the bed and bolting the hitch parts to the frame.  Some users feel comfortable doing this themselves, but most consult one of our experienced dealers to do it for them.  Installation times vary with experience of the installer and availability of tools (such as a lift or impact wrenches).

Quality products, I wouldn't use anything else.

I've had the Turnoverball in my last 3 trucks. I'm not mechanical in the least, but I installed all 3 myself. I also have the Tow & Stow and Companion. B&W makes quality items and I will not buy another brand of trailer hitch. I've never had the need for their customer service, but I've had a couple friends who told me it is top notch. Keep up the good work.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
You want to work-this hitch preforms as advertised to the specified weights.

I've had these hitches on my trucks for the last 15 yrs. They are great-pull a Fifth wheel with the Companion too and that is a simple and solid way to pull. Bought a Cummins 2005 recently and had the hitch installed. Only problem is that the latch release hits the bed flange coming out.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Love, love, love this hitch

We have been installing your product onto our customers trucks for about 10 years now. We used to carry about 3 different 5th wheel hitches but have now dropped them all to carry the B&W exclusively. The product is well researched, bolts right on (engineers have done their homework) and we don't have problems with installation or performance. Customer service is top notch, you can call your 800 number and everyone there that answers the phone knows your products top to bottom. Kudos on a stellar American made product. Keep up the good work.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Need to work on the painting process, flakes off then rusts up. Some of the repeat customers will strip and repaint the hitch themselves.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
