This gooseneck hitch has a shorter stem than a normal gooseneck and is designed to be
used with the Shocker Replacement Goose Box for 5th Wheel Campers only. This gooseneck air
hitch cannot be used on a normal gooseneck trailer as the inner tube steel is too short for that

in the same location on your camper.

Hook up trailer by shifting the lever back and lowering coupler onto the ball. Pull shift lever forward and align the locking hole – insert pin.

Gooseneck Air Pressure Settings

  • This is a LOW PRESSURE hitch, that works by tow resistance.
  • Set air pressure at approx. 15 psi, then test drive.
  • Increase pressure in 5 psi increments until optimum results are found.
  • Typical air pressure range is 15-25 psi.
  • Do NOT EXCEED 100 psi

Note: When towing heavy trailers or trailers with high wind resistance it may be necessary to increase air pressure in the Shocker.
