Where to run my fifth wheel?
I have an air slide fifth, pull a 48ft spread axle reefer with a 20in kingpin. Ive been running the fifth wheel in the furthest position to the rear of the truck which puts the kingpin directly in the center of the drives. With the 20in kingpin trailer I have a huge trailer gap. I was wondering if I could slide the fifth wheel forward about 1ft but wasnt sure if that was too much weight to be over the front drive axle or if Id wear out my wheel bearings or other damage doing that. If 1ft forward is too far, how far can I run it up or should I just leave it where it is, centered between the drives?
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
