Andersen Hitch (Roto-Flex) Lockout Kit (pics)

Wanted to share my installation of the Andersen Hitch “Roto-Flex” pin box lockout kit. Took about 20 minutes for this added security.

BTW- I have the identical Road Armor pin box..

I will be interested if you can report back on how well this works for you. My concern is that the lockout kit has removed the dampening effect that the Roto-Flex pin box may have provided. But, it still may be ok; either way I'm curious.

Thanks!
Brad

That setup is the same that I had. The lockout kit does prevent the pinbox from flexing... thus why I mentioned (in the other thread) that I would just look for a cheaper “solid” pinbox. Before I installed the lockout kit, the pinbox had a tilt in it, (best way I can describe it). In other words it didn’t sit level on the AUH. I didn’t like the way it sat on there... looked like it wanted to slide off the back. (Not really, but it made me uncomfortable to look at it, LOL). The lockout kit stopped it moving - that is literally its job- to stop the flex. The AUH was the best ride, the goosebox was right behind it though.

Are you not concerned about lippert denying warranty on your rig if, God forbid, you developed that Frame flex issue that seems somewhat pervasive on our rigs? Because I think running that AUH setup can be grounds for denial.

No I haven't been concerned.
I have not heard that the AUH would be cause for denial, but just in case I have sent an email to Lippert to ask. We will see what they say.

Also, Anderson claims that the AUH does not void any manufacturers warranty and they add their own $5 million supplemental warranty to cover any damage to the pin box or frame that is denied by the dealer or manufacturer.

Now, as to the "Frame flex issue that seems somewhat pervasive on our rigs", can you elaborate? I'm new to Montana's and haven't heard it discussed recently on this forum, so please share what concerns there are.

Thanks!
Brad
