  • Fit of Saris Freedom Superclamp # SA4026 on 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited w/ Factory Spare Tire
  • You'll need to take a measurement form your hitch pin hole rearward until the rear edge of the spare tire is cleared, as shown in the help article I've linked to. If your measurement is less than 5 inches, the Saris Freedom Superclamp 4, part # SA4026 will fit when folded into the storage position. If the measurement is greater than 5 inches, but less than 12, the rack will fit when unfolded, but won't have the clearance to fold into the storage position. I've linked you to a product...

  • Mounting an Electric Winch to Car Hauler
  • Mounting to a car hauler is a common use for an electric winch like the # 1440200 Superwinch S4000 4K Utility Winch you mentioned. You can certainly use a trailer mounted battery to provide power for the winch. Keep in mind that the accessory power circuit provided by the trailer connector on your tow vehicle doesn't have enough power to charge your trailer mounted battery. It will help keep in maintained, but doesn't have enough grunt to charge it once it's depleted. To completely charge...

  • Wiring Umbilical Included With Roadmaster # RM-576 Sterling Tow Bar
  • The Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Towbar, part # RM-576 includes a female 6-pin plug that would mount to the vehicle being flat towed, so the 6-way umbilical included with the Sterling tow bar would work great for your 2014 CR-V. The wire is 78 inches long, which should be plenty long enough so that no extensions should be needed. The Sterling tow bar provides a channel on the tow bar for the wire to run through, for a clean look and to also provide protection for the wiring. I'll...

  • Base Rack for a 2014 Toyota Sienna for a Naked Roof
  • Typically, the2014 Sienna at least has roof rails that run from the front to back along the edge of the roof. None of our roof rack manufacturers, Thule, Yakima or Rhino Rack currently offer anything for a vehicle with a bare roof. Yakima tells me that they're currently evaluating the fit, while Thule and Rhino Rack didn't have any information available. My Yakima rep couldn't provide any timeframe on when something would be available, so keep checking back with us from time to time....

  • Compatibility of Rhino Rack Cargo Box # RRRMFZ66 With Factory Crossbars of 2011 Subaru Outback
  • The Rhino Rack # RRRMFZ66 cargo box should fit your factory crossbars on your 2011 Outback Wagon, assuming that they're not wider than 3-1/2 inches wide or 1-1/3 inches tall and that they can be adjusted so that the bar spread (distance between front crossbar and rear crossbar measured center to center) is between 24-1/4 and 36-1/2 inches.

  • Recommended Hub/Drum and Idler Hub for Timbren Axle-Less Suspension # ASR35HDS02
  • For a brake drum hub, Timbren recommends the # 8-201-9UC3-EZ from Dexter Axle, which features a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt circle. For an idler hub, go with the # 42655UC1-EZ. Both hubs use the # 25580 inner and # 15123 outer bearing, which is compatible with the spindle used by the Timbren # ASR35HDS02 axle-less suspension you referred to.

  • Cargo Carrier Bike Rack Adapter for Mountain Bikes w/ 29 Inch Tires
  • The manufacturer of the adapter hoops, Stromberg Carlson tells me that the hoops work fine with 29 inch bikes, but we've received at least one product review stating that the hoops just aren't tall enough to get a good grab on the wheels of a 29 inch bike. Rola makes a bike rack adapter for a cargo carrier, part # 59904 that might be a better choice. You'd need to use it with a railed carrier like part # 63153. This set-up would be my recommendation for carrying your mountain bike with...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier and Bike Adapter to Carry Two Bikes on Rear of Travel Trailer
  • I don't recommend using a folding carrier on the rear of a travel trailer, and here's why. Due to the stiffer suspension and the long rear overhang (distance between the rear axle and the back bumper) any accessory installed in a hitch at the rear of a travel trailer will be subjected to much more severe bouncing and jarring forces than would be experienced if the accessory were installed in a hitch on a passenger vehicle. The folding portion of the carrier is a likely failure point, which...

  • Can Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail # EHS-103-R be Used on Fifth Wheel That Sits Higher
  • The top landing on the Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail, # EHS-103-R, sits at 28 inches high. If your fifth wheel trailer sits approximately 7 inches higher, you are correct, it would take one more step to enter your trailer. Please do keep in mind that the hand rail ends at the landing so you would not have one for that last step into the trailer. Other than that, you should have no problems using these steps for your fifth wheel.

  • Does the Photo of the Arcon RV Power Cord Adapter # AR14366 Show a Crack
  • What you are seeing in the pic of the Arcon RV Power Cord Adapter # AR14366 is not a crack. That just happens to be an imperfection in the way the rubber was formed. It's basically just an extra strand of rubber left from the forming process. And no, this is not the exact model that you would receive if you ordered this product. You would get one very similar but most likely not with that tiny imperfection that wouldn't affect anything.

This carrier is designed for the rear wheel to be on the ground during transport. There currently isn't a dolly that would be recommended for the rear wheel of your bike.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a 2011 Ford F350 with a 2-1/2 inch Hitch
  • I have a solution for you that will allow you to use a weight distribution system with your 2011 Ford F350 that has a 2-1/2 inch Class V hitch. All you need is a shank designed for a 2-1/2 inch hitch like the part # RP54977, with that you could use the Reese Weight Distribution system part # RP66022 like you referenced. This system would be perfect since it comes without a shank and is compatible with the # RP54977. I attached an FAQ on weight distribution systems plus an install...

You would find the connector at the rear of the vehicle near the drivers side frame rail above the spare tire.

  • Is the Brake Controller in My Truck Causing my Rear Brakes to Not Function Properly
  • The brake controller you have installed in your 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 would not affect the performance of the rear brakes of your truck. The functioning of the controller is far removed from how your brakes function. Removing the brake controller will not change or affect the problem you are experiencing. I would recommend you take your truck back to the shop that you had your brakes done at and have them look at it again. Or, if you don't trust them I would recommend you find a more...

  • Yes, there is a 3 bike version of the Thule Raceway part # TH9001XT that you referenced. It's part # TH9002XT. I checked with Thule and the pads that make the contact between the rack and vehicle are not available. 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...

  • Is it Possible to Go from a 5.30-12 Trailer Tire to a ST185/80R13
  • Your current 5.30/12 tire and wheel setup has an overall diameter of 21.9 inches and the ST185/80R13 has an overall diameter of 24.1 inches. That means you will have 1.1 inches less of clearance between your tire and fender as well as about 2 more inches of width to your tires. If you have clearance for the bigger tires on your setup this would work well for you. For a wheel and tire with the size you are looking for that has 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want the part # AM3S331.

Please note the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. It will also put more stress on the hitch and vehicle.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation to Carry Bike Rack and Bikes on a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • Curt trailer hitch # C13144 would work great with a bike rack on your 2014 Subaru Forester. However, I do not recommend using this hitch for a bike rack. The reason is that Curt requires the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, when using this hitch with a non-trailer load, such as a bike rack. Because it is difficult to properly attach the strap to the vehicle, I would go with a different hitch. Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87654 would be a great option for you. It does not require...

  • Replacement Pivot Bushing and Wear Discs for Reese Sidewinder

  • Will Using Roadmaster Fuse Bypass Shut Off Clock and Cause Radio Presets to Be Lost
  • It very well might. Different circuits are affected in different vehicles. The reason you pull the fuse or bypass it is to prevent the vehicle battery from being discharged while its being flat towed. Try pulling the involved fuse first for a few seconds, and then replacing it. If you lose the clock and radio presets, you know that using the fuse bypass will cause the same thing.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation For 2011 Ford Escape

  • U-Bolt Suspension Kit for 1-3/4 Inch Diameter Round Trailer Axle
  • U-bolt kit # APUBR-10 is the only one we carry that fits a 1-3/4 inch diameter trailer axle. You would have to change the springs to 1-3/4 inch wide springs to use this kit. A larger u-bolt kit would not work because it can cause damage.

A 1-3/4 inch diameter axle likely has a 2,000 pound capacity so we would be looking...

  • Can the 12 Volt Circuit on a 7-Way Connector be Used to Charge a Trailer Mounted Battery

You would want to cut all but the blue wire short with this connector and then match it up to the 4-way wiring you have on your trailer. With the blue wire left long you could run it to the reverse lights on the trailer.
