  • 12x2 Trailer Brake Assembly Recommendation with 5 Lug Mounting Pattern
  • Sounds like you could need the brake assembly part # 23-105 for the driver side and the part # 23-106 for the passenger side. I attached a picture that shows the dimensions of it's bolt pattern. I think you measured in different locations so this one could potentially work.

  • Dimensions of the Husky Liners Cargo Mat part # HL21703
  • I went and pulled a Husky Liners Cargo Mat part # HL21703 from our warehouse to measure it and found that it measures 47 inches in width and 37 inches long. This will fit up to the back of your third row seats. If your third row seat was folded down the correct mat would be the part # 4401200. For second row mats you would want the part # HL61453.

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country
  • The nicest trunk rack we offer is the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack part # TH9001XT. I checked with Thule and this rack is confirmed to fit your 2009 Chrysler Town and Country. What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer. The cables store inside the rack so there are no loose...

  • Troubleshooting Curt Trailer Wiring Harness Install on a 2000 Nissan Xterra
  • The red wire of the Wiring Harness part # 56146KIT that you referenced should be run to the brake light circuit of your 2000 Nissan Xterra. If you are missing that connection I would recommend you verify that the other wires are securely connected to the correct circuits. Especially the black wire that needs to run to the positive terminal of your vehicle battery. If this connection isn't made, or the fuse isn't installed in the fuse holder the converter will not work. I attached an...

  • Recommendation for a Shelby Jack on a Trailer that Has Handle Interference
  • The difference between the two winch handles is the series of Dutton Lainson winches they are designed to fit. The # DL70347 is designed to fit the DLB winches whereas the part # DL70346 is designed to fit the B series Dutton Lainson winches. These are not designed for a jack like your Shelby Jack part # 5876A8. You might need to move your jack to a different location on your trailer frame so that it no longer has interference that prevents the handle from turning.

  • Installation Bolts for the CE Smith Hanger Bracket part # CE14017G
  • The mounting holes of the part # CE14017G that you referenced are 7/16 inches in diameter. You would need to get bolts that would fit those hole sizes. Since applications can vary there isn't a set bolt size you would need. Your best option would be to find a bolt long enough for your application that would fit in the hole.

  • Could a 7-pin European Connector be Adapted to a Nato 12 Pin Trailer Connector
  • I am sure there is a way to do it. We don't carry either style of connector though so I wouldn't have any parts I could recommend. You would need to track down the two connectors you would need. One that would plug into the your Range Rover and then one that would plug into your 12 pin Nato connection. You would need to also get wiring diagrams for both plugs and wire them by function to each other. I attached a couple pictures that should be helpful

  • 7-Way Bracket Recommendation to Replace Rusty Bracket on a 2006 Chevy Silverado

But if you check out the link I attached to the right you will see a page that has all of the brackets we offer that could work. Chances are one like the part # HM40978 or the part # 54-77-074 would be what you need.

Check out the review video I attached for this rack.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rails Recommendation for a 2009 Chevy Silverado with Short Bed
  • I checked your order notes and it looks like you ordered a now discontinued Draw Tite Fold Down gooseneck hitch. Your hitch is not compatible with the B and W Companion Slider hitch part # BWRVK3400 that you referenced as this only fit B and W gooseneck hitches. The best recommendation I could make for you would be to replace your gooseneck hitch with fifth wheel rails and install a sliding hitch. None of the adapters that would work with your setup would be compatible with your short...

  • Would the Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier # RHDC2 be able to Carry 2 Dirt Bikes
  • I wish we had some pictures of the Trailer Hitch Mounted Dirt Bike Carrier # RHDC2 loaded, but we haven't had the chance to test fit this carrier yet and I wasn't able to find any pics online either. I will say that since you will have the bikes facing opposite directions I can guarantee you will be able to fit two full size dirt bikes on this carrier. Aside from the handlebars, dirt bikes are pretty thin. Since the handlebars would be on opposite ends of the carrier there would be no...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 3500 lb Camper
  • Actually the 2-5/16 inch ball that comes with the Pro Series Weight Distribution System # PS49903 would be the correct size ball for you. There isn't a 2-1/8 inch hitch ball size. Most likely you just mis-measured your ball and you actually need a 2-5/16 ball. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow, this figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the...

  • Where do the Wires of a Trailer Break Away System Install Onto
  • In the diagram that you referenced, that I also attached here, the brake output circuit is a separate circuit that carries power to the trailer brakes totally separate from the brake light circuits. Also, the 12 volt power source is a separate circuit from the running lights circuit. If you have a 7-way trailer connector you will have these circuits. To see where the pins are on typical 7-way check out the picture I attached. I also attached an FAQ article on trailer wiring for...

  • Spare Tire Recommendation for a Trailer with ST175/80D13 Size Wheel and Tire
  • The difference in the overall diameters of the two tire sizes you listed is big enough that I would not recommend the use of a 5.3-12 tire in place of a ST175/80D13. The 5.3-12 will be 21.9 inches overall, whereas the ST175/80D13 measures 24.1 inches. In an emergency situation this would work as a spare, but only if it was the only option. If you are looking for a spare you would need to match the size that you currently have. For that I would recommend the # AM31985 if you have a...

  • Timbren Axle-Less System Recommendation for a Tear Style Trailer Towing 500 lbs Max
  • Based on the weight of your trailer and how much weight you plan on transporting the 1,200 lb Timbrens would be a better choice for you. Using a capacity system that is matched closer to what your trailer will see will provide you with an overall better ride quality than if you went with a system rated to high. For that you would want the part # A12WS545 that you referenced.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Towing Setup Recommendation for a 2015 GMC 3500HD
  • If you go with a Sidewinder, and Elite Underbed Rail Kit like the part # RP30868 and an Elite Hitch like the part # RP30142 you would have basically the nicest fifth wheel towing setup around. I would strongly recommend you go this route. If you need a higher rated hitch you could use the # RP30143 as this hitch is rated for 25k. With this setup chucking would not be an issue at all. The movement that the Elite hitches is very slight and would not be considered chucking. Chucking...

  • Parts Needed to Tow 2 Seadoos with a 2012 Ford Focus
  • My advice would be to bring sunscreen and have a good time! Based on the weight of your trailer and Seadoos you should be fine to use the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24872 on your 2012 Ford Focus to make the trip. You will need a few other components if you don't have them already. You will need trailer wiring for your vehicle, for that I would recommend the part # C56140 if you have a hatchback or part # C56138 if you have a sedan. For a ball mount you would want the part # 3593, for...

  • How to Wire a New 4-Way to a Sea Doo Trailer that Has Double Wires
  • Sounds like you need to redo the wiring of the new 4-way completely. Typically, the green wire runs to the right turn/stop circuit, the yellow runs to the left turn/stop circuit, the brown wire runs to the taillights and the white is the ground that runs to the trailer frame. If you have double wires or, "wishbone wires," on your trailer but the new connector only has single wires you will want to either twist the double wires together, or use a butt-end connector to run both of the...

  • Recommendation to Get Better Front Wheel Ground Clearance When Using a Bike Adapter
  • The easiest solution I could make for you to help level your bike would be to raise your seat so that the front wheel will move up. The rear wheel will lower slightly when doing this, but the front wheel will move up and you will gain ground clearance. I would not recommend loading your bike upside down. Our bike rack manufacturers do not recommend carrying bikes in that manner.

  • How to Remove a Broken Key From a Yakima Cargo Box
  • What you can use to grab the bit of broken key that is sticking out of the lock core is a set of nail clippers. First I would recommend using a penetrating lubricant like WD-40 with the straw to direct the oil into the lock core, and then using the nail clippers grab what is sticking out of the core and turn it if needed and remove the lock. With the lock number on the head of the key you can order a replacement key. You will need to enter the part number Y8772-XXXX in to our search...

I attached an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56038. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900.

Only thing is Class I hitches are restricted to only carrying two bikes. Any more that will put undue stress on the hitch and could potentially damage it.

  • Installing a Brake Controller in a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer with Factory Tow Package
  • If your 2006 Chevy Trailblazer has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector then you would not use a brake controller wiring harness. Instead, the tow package wiring to install a brake controller is located under the dash. You will need to splice the wires from the controller to this wire bundle. The wire bundle is located under the dash, to the left of the steering wheel. It should be held together with a white tag. The tag should list the functions of the wires. On the brake controller,...

  • Will a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk have Same Towing Capacity with or without Factory Tow Package
  • What you will want to do is check an owners manual for a 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The corporate folks at Jeep, not a dealer, have the final word on this subject. It is possible though that they are correct because there are often things included in a tow package that cannot be replicated using aftermarket parts. For example, different rear end gear ratios, changes to the transmission, and different motor tuning. The sure bet is to go with a model that has the factory tow package. But if you...

  • Adapter to Go from 6-Way Square on Tow Vehicle to 4-Way Flat Trailer Side Connector
  • It sound like you want the opposite of adapter # 30104. That would mean your tow vehicle has a 6-Way square connector. What you can do is use # 37995 which has both the vehicle end and trailer ends. On the trailer end, you can wire the loose wires to a vehicle side 4-Way, # HM48190. Then you will have a 6-Way square to 4-Way flat adapter. The other option is to just replace the 4-Way flat on the trailer with the trailer end 6-Way that comes with # 37995.

  • Removing a Retaining Ring from a Wobble Roller
  • Probably the easiest way to remove a retainer ring, such as # CE10981, to replace a wobble roller is to grip one end with some vise grips and the other end with some pliers. Then twist in opposite directions to make the opening wide enough for it to slip off. If you have a rotary tool with a cutting attachment it would make short work of it.

  • Recommended Locking Hitch Pin for Bully # CR-605LED Hitch Step

If you were using the CR-605LED on a 1-1/4 inch receiver, you'd use a hitch lock with the 1/2 inch locking pin, like part # RH2-XL.

  • Using Hitch Extender with Darby Extend-A-Truck Hitch Mounted Load Bar to Clear Spare Tire on Jeep

When you need to back up the trailer, you will just need to switch the sway control lever to the off position, pull two clips, remove the friction sway control bar, and now you are ready to back up.

  • Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer With Sliding Fifth Wheel Hitch Slid Rearward in Maneuvering Position
  • If you're talking about low speed maneuvering like in a campground, the answer would be yes. If you're talking about driving on the highway or on public roads at speeds above what you'd drive on a parking lot, the answer would be no, it would not be safe. When the fifth wheel slider is slid rearward, the pin weight of the fifth wheel is applied to the truck bed behind the truck axle which would lighten the weight on the front axle of the truck (like a teeter totter) which would greatly...

  • Hardwiring in a Brake Controller to a 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • Since you already have installed a 7-Way and have the light functions working just fine what you will need to do to get the brake signal working is to use installation kit # 5506. You will attach one of the wires from the kit to the back of the 7-Way in the 7 oclock position. Route the wire under the truck and up into the engine compartment. Then you will need to route the wire through the firewall using an existing entry point or by drilling being careful not to drill through anything...

  • Adding 7-Way to Install Brake Controller on a 2014 Ford F-150 with Factory 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • You will need to follow the 4-Way harness forward underneath your 2014 Ford F-150. It should plug into another harness that continues to the front of the vehicle. If you can find the harness the 4-Way plugs into then test the wiring in it using a circuit tester, such as # 3808. There should be a wire that has 12 volts of power all the time and another wire, likely blue, that is for output to the trailer brakes. You would use # 37185 to add a 7-Way. The black wire on it is for the...

  • Replacement Fan Blade for Exhaust Fan with D-Shaped Motor Shaft
  • I spoke with my contact at Ventline and if you need a replacement fan for a 14 x 14 roof vent with a D-shaped motor shaft, you will need part # BVA0163-00. If you need to replace the fan on your range hood, Ventine no longer has a replacement fan that will work with the D-shaped motor shaft. In this case you would need to replace the motor with the 12-Volt DC Fan Motor, # BVD0218-00, and then use Replacement Fan Blade, # BVD0216-00.

  • Does Computer have to be Flashed After Replacing Factory Brake Controller On 2008 Ford F-350
  • The factory integrated brake controllers, especially the first generations of them, performed poorly as you have described. They are just not designed well and thus not effective. On newer trucks they have gotten better but I would still say an aftermarket controller is superior. When you install an aftermarket controller in your 2008 Ford F-350 the factory controller will have to be disconnected. This will cause a fault code to appear. That fault code will have to be cleared by your...

  • Difficulty Releasing Hooks from Bikes on Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack
  • It sounds like you are pushing the hooks down too tight. They do not have to be super tight, just snug. Also sometimes on the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack # S64670 the upper hook can get wedged with the lower hook at the upright and that makes if very difficult to release either hook. The solution is to not lower the upper hooks as much.

If you are looking to have enough light in your enclosed trailer to allow you to work on your bikes, then I expect that three of these units would deliver enough light to properly illuminate most if not all of the trailer's interior.

  • Is Fulton Worm Gear Cable Winch # FKW30000103 Suitable for Vertical Lifting
  • The Fulton Worm Gear Cable Winch # FKW30000103 that you referenced is indeed suitable for lifting vertical loads. It is not intended to hold them indefinitely however, which is why there is no safe WLL (working load limit) rating on it. Once your load is where you want it, you can secure it with chains or other fitments to hold it in place. If used with Fulton cable # FWC3250100, which has a 1400-lb WLL, the total system will have this same capacity.

  • Can a Dual Hitch Receiver be Used to Tow Trailer and Carry Motorcycle with Nissan Titan
  • The use of a dual receiver will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch on your Nissan Titan by 50 percent. That would take the tongue weight capacity down to 450 pounds. The combined with of the motorcycle, carrier, and the trailer tongue weight would exceed the reduced capacity of the hitch. Another option is to use a front mount hitch and carry the bike at the front of the Titan. This can reduce air flow to the motor, decrease driver visibility, and block the head lights....

A 40 foot trailer should not be a problem. The second camera and the antenna would allow you to put the camera where it would otherwise have the signal obstructed but you do not have to use it. It does come with a shorter antenna as well that mounts directly to the back of the second camera.
