Demco 13K Autoslide Service Bulletin – Kit Number: 6441
Dethmers Manufacturing Co. (Demco) is issuing a service bulletin on certain models of the Demco 13K Autoslide 5th wheel hitches manufactured between September 29, 2021 and December 16, 2021 with the serial number range of 18146 – 21315. The serial number can be found on the back of the hitch (tailgate facing).
It has come to our attention that certain models of this hitch may exhibit a potential twisting or fracturing in the lower guide arm assembly in tight turns. Because the potential for twisting or fracturing exists, Demco will provide you a service kit that ensures your Demco Autoslide will meet or exceed safe towing standards. This service kit will be provided to you at no charge. The kit must be installed by a qualified 5th wheel hitch installer of your choice.
Demco part numbers affected by this bulletin include: 8550047, 8550048, 8550049, and 6330.
If you are the installing dealer, Demco will reimburse you 1 hour of labor, up to $150.00, to install this service kit. The removed lower guide arm assembly must be returned to Demco for proper reimbursement.
We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you. To order Kit #6441 and for more information, call 800-543-3626 or email email@example.com.
