Another more critical issue to is that some of the Lippert long king pins can scrape your bed rails on certain trucks when turned and on uneven ground. Even on flat ground if you have a cover with flush rails the mounts dropping down from the unit frame can rub during tight cornering.

Seems more an issue on the newer trucks as the beds are higher and in order to get the unit level you need to take the hitch down which results in the combo causing the issues. Seen it happen on 2 occasions, so make sure you check all your turning with good eyes on all areas to you know your limits before it happens.

Has anyone used this with a pinned revolution so that it operates like a standard pinbox? Want to make sure the revolution specifically will clear the bed rails.

You can turn the kingpin adapter to the back of kingpin and get clearance .Mine is that way and have plenty of tailgate to 5er clearance as well as bed clearance.

Right, where the issues are is with the longer Lippert King Pin boxes. I guess the Ram beds are just higher overall as I have seen 2 instances where the king pin frames have rubbed the top rails on the sides of the bed with the heights maxed out on adjustments.

Not all pin boxes are the same length and if your model is a long box you could have issues and not just with the Anderson. I had to adjust my Reese elite up too from my previous Ford settings. I learned from someone else's mistake there.
