Squirt WD40 or other oil into

re-grease.

Diagram 1
Adjustable Jaw Bolt Setup:
All Fwh24, FWH24PA, and FWH34 fifth wheel hitch heads are equipped with an adjustable jaw
bolt. The jaw bolt is not adjusted at the factory. This allows the customer to set the jaw to the
amount of play they prefer to have, in order to couple and uncouple with ease.
To adjust, make sure nut B is loosened away from the hitch. With the hitch in the closed or
locked position, tighten bolt A up finger tight till it can’t go in any more. Then back bolt A off ½ a
turn and tighten nut B up against the frame with a ¾” wrench to secure the bolt.
This initial adjustment should give the proper amount of play to ensure smooth coupling and
uncoupling, as well as a smooth ride. If further adjustment is necessary, repeat the procedure by
adjusting the bolt a ¼ turn each time.
Bolt A
