Fontaine has fifthwheel training materials

Fontaine Fifth Wheel has released a video and document outlining the proper coupling, sliding, and uncoupling procedures for its newest fifthwheels, the Fontaine Ultra LT, Ultra HD, and Ultra HR.

“A good fifthwheel connection is critical for the safe operation of a truck and trailer,” said Terry Mennen, Fontaine Fifth Wheel vice-president of sales and marketing. “Our Ultra family of fifthwheels uses a patented lock design that requires specific coupling, sliding, and uncoupling procedures. Every operator who drives a truck equipped with a Fontaine Ultra LT, Ultra HD, or Ultra HR fifthwheel should review these procedures in order to maximize their safety and performance advantages.”

The training video runs for about eight and a half minutes and features live-action demonstrations of each step of the coupling, sliding, and uncoupling processes. It is available for download or online viewing under the “Videos” tab on Fontaine’s website,

The training document details coupling and uncoupling procedures, with photos illustrating key elements. Download it at
