FIFTH-WHEEL COUPLING

Fontaine Fifth Wheel reminds drivers that not all fifth wheels work the same way, so it’s important to understand the coupling and uncoupling procedures for the specific wheel installed in order to ensure a good connection and to prevent equipment damage.

The company has created a 'Driver’s Training Corner' on the home page of its website to provide easy access to its training materials on coupling procedures, including videos and downloadable illustrated guides.

With the variety of fifth-wheel designs currently available, it’s very easy for a driver to get used to one type of wheel, and then switch to a truck that uses a completely different type with its own coupling processes, Fontaine says.
