Vehicle Systems: Coupling Systems

The primary function of the coupling system in a tractor-trailer is to connect the tractor to the trailer, the power to the payload. The two key components in the coupling system are the fifth wheel and the trailer kingpin. Coupling the tractor to the trailer through a single 2-inch kingpin is one of the most critical areas of tractor/semitrailer operation.
