Rebuild kit streamlines fifth wheel repairs

Fontaine Parts Connection has released a new “major rebuild kit” to streamline the repair process for popular Fontaine fifth wheel models. The kit combines six previous kits into one.

“We know how frustrating it can be when technicians start to work on a project and have to make several trips to the parts counter to retrieve necessary components,” said Steven Alldredge, product manager at Fontaine Parts Connection. “When you use a repair kit that doesn’t include all the pieces necessary to complete the job, you waste time, money and resources. We combined the contents of six smaller kits to create the new Major Rebuild Kit. It has everything required to work on Fontaine fifth wheels.”

The major rebuild kit includes parts required to service all left-hand 6000, 7000, 7000 Clean Connect and Ultra NT top plates. It supports Fontaine’s No-Slack II lock technology, which has been installed in the majority of Fontaine fifth wheels for the past 15 years.

Only genuine Fontaine parts are utilized in the kit. The box includes easy-to-follow disassembly and reassembly instructions and the contents are packaged in the sequence they are needed. There is even QR code printed in the kit that links to an instructional video about the rebuild procedure.

“Since everything comes in one box, the Major Rebuild Kit alleviates inventory headaches and makes repair planning a breeze,” said Alldredge. “It is cost-effective, technician-friendly and built to meet Fontaine standards for perfect compatibility.”
