Inspection of a tractor-trailer’s 5th wheel plate and kingpin is necessary to ensure operational and road safety and avoid a possible 5th wheel repair and replacement.
This is often neglected, overlooking rusted, corroded, or cracked parts that need repair or replacement.
85%-90% of 5th wheel plate failures are found during the DOT inspection.
Lead Service Technician Larry Anders walks us through our 5-point 5th wheel repair and replacement process in this video. He showcases what sets the Utility Keystone Trailer Sales service team apart from the rest.
