  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • Your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited most likely came with either no trailer connection at all or a 7-way round trailer connector. If you have a round connector at the rear of your vehicle near the hitch that looks like the part # 20135 then you have a 7-way. To see if you have the connection point to install the wiring harness designed for factory wired vehicles (part # C55260) you will need to look on the driver's side behind the spare. You will see an access panel there. Open...

  • Will Adding Cold Air Intake Increase Gas Mileage on a Ford F-250 XLT V10
  • Adding cold air intake will help an engine to run more efficiently. But if that was the only thing you changed you probably wouldn't notice a difference in gas mileage on a single tank. It might take several months to see an improvement in mileage. Driving habits will have more of an effect on mileage. Other factors such as the condition of the vehicle, terrain, altitude will also have an effect on the mileage.

  • Trailer Brake Lines Sucking In Air Using Hydrastar Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuator
  • It doesn't sound like the pump on your Carlisle Hydrastar actuator # HBA-10, is out. It does sound like a possible issue with a seal, the cap, or something could be blocking the flow of fluid at the fitting that connects to the brake lines. Fluid in the brake lines may not leak out anywhere unless enough pressure is in the lines. I would not rule out the brakes or a wheel cylinder. Check the backs of the wheels and tires for any evidence of leaking fluid which would indicate a bad wheel...

  • Replacement Electric Stabilizer Jack to Replace a Lippert Unit
  • The Ultra-Fab stabilizer jack # UF39-941602 is not made by Lippert. If replacing the whole unit, which is what I recommend because there could be unseen damage beyond the damaged leg, you could still use the Ultra-Fab model. This one has a capacity of 3,200 pounds. We also have # UF39-941705 which has dual motors allowing you to level each side independently. It has a 6,000 pound capacity.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation For Infiniti Q50S
  • If your Infiniti Q50 is a 2014, the trailer hitch designed to fit your vehicle is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11407. This is a Class l hitch and has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. If your Q50 is a 2015, we unfortunately do not have a hitch that is confirmed to fit yet. Manufacturers are constantly adding new vehicles to their list when they confirm a fit so you can check back with us in the future to see if we have a confirmed fit for your vehicle.

  • Will a Thule Roof Mount Cargo Bag Fit Between Rola Roof Rack Crossbars
  • You are correct, The Thule cargo bag, # TH869, is 40 inches long and the bar spread using Rola roof rack # 59806 on your 2006 Toyota Prius is closer to 26 inches apart on center. You could still use both but part of the bag would ride on top of the bars and it is not an ideal situation. None of the roof racks have a bar spread that would be wide enough but I have another solution. Instead of using this bag you could use a different bag that does not require a roof rack at all and actually...

  • Replacing Grease Caps of Carry-On 5x10 Single Axle Trailer With Bearing Buddies
  • To determine which side of Bearing Buddy you'd need for your existing hubs, you'll need to use an accurate measuring device like a digital caliper and measure the inside bore of your hub. Once you find the inside diameter of the hub bore, you'll choose a Bearing Buddy with the matching diameter. For instance, if you find that the diameter of your hub bore is 1.98 inches, you'd go with a Bearing Buddy like the # BB1980A-SS. I've linked you to the main page for bearing protectors. At...

  • Moving a Trailer with 600 Pounds Tongue Weight Around a Flat Driveway
  • Electric jacks rarely have wheels on them because the wheel capacity is much lower than the jack capacity so it limits them if they have wheels. Instead of installing and removing a jack, I recommend a trailer dolly, # MT70225, which is rated for up to 600 pounds tongue weight. It does have a 1-7/8 inch ball but that is fine for a trailer dolly, even if the coupler takes a larger ball, because you aren't towing with the smaller ball, just moving the trailer around. I have used trailer...

  • Installation of Fulton # FHDPB340301 Trailer Tongue Hinge Kit
  • According to my contact at Fulton, in order for the hinge kit to realize the listed capacity of up to 7K, the hinge needs to be installed so the 'male' end is on the trailer side of the tongue, as explained in the installation instructions that I've linked to. Installing it the other way will significantly decrease the weight rating of the hinge, and will cause accelerated wear that could cause the hinge to fail. If the installation is completed correctly according to the instructions,...

  • New Trailer Hitch Is Touching Exhaust On 2005 Acura MDX
  • There are a couple of ways you can fix the problem with the exhaust touching the new trailer hitch. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to eliminate the rattle caused by this problem. The first suggestion is to use a pair of channel locks or vise grips and bend the hanger attached to the exhaust. This should move the exhaust far enough away to stop the rattle. If that does not take care of the issue, you can replace the rubber hangers for the exhaust. Over time these...

  • Availability of 5th Wheel Hitch Cover for Husky 26K Hitch
  • The best recommendation I can give you to determine if we have a 5th wheel hitch cover that will work on your Husky 26K 5th Wheel Hitch would be to first determine the dimensions of your hitch and then compare them to the dimensions of the Hitch Cover part # CA80116. This cover is a universal design that is designed to fit as many 5th wheel hitches as possible and measures 24" wide x 24" long x 18" tall.

  • Can Tandem Axle Spring Hanger Spacing Be Increased to 30-1/4-Inches to Fit Larger 235/80R16 Tires
  • For your 3-inch axles the normal spacing of the hangers included in the DexterTandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit is 29-1/2-inches. You can probably space them the 3/4-inches further apart, to a spacing of 30-1/4-inches, without too much impact on the suspension geometry. However, you may be able to compensate for this change by using longer shackle straps. The shackle straps supplied with the kit are part # 115052 which are 2-5/8-inches long. We offer a 3-1/8-inch strap (measured from hole...

  • Hand Winch for a Car Trailer and 2000 to 3500 Pound Cars
  • Since you are getting a car hauler trailer and will be pulling vehicles onto it that means you will have rolling loads. A rolling load is much easier to move than a static load so you do not have to have a high capacity winch. When winching a rolling load, the winch can handle more weight than its rated capacity. On level ground, a winch can pull 10 times its capacity. Even with the trailer 19 inches tall with relatively short ramps, You would still be fine with a lower capacity winch....

This system will help reduce sway. It is rated for 400 to 800 pound tongue weights. Since you are carrying precious cargo, I would recommend the Reese Strait-Line weight distribution with sway control like # RP66083. The reason is because the Strait-Line will lock the cams into position to hold the trailer steady...

  • Right Replacement Hubs for a Trailer with 3500 Pound Axle and 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
  • In order to determine the correct replacement hubs for your trailer I will need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings. If the axle has a grease zerk fitting at the end then it is an EZ lube axle. If there is no grease fitting then it is a regular axle. Hub # 84545UC1-EZ is for EZ lube axles and it uses inner bearing L68149 and outer bearing L44649.

Since the Elite Go-Go-Scooter itself weighs in excess of 100 lbs, I cannot recommend a carrier that you could use, but I do have an option for you so that you do not have to buy a new car. I recommend installing a trailer hitch like part # 24794. This is a Class l hitch and has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. The ball mount I recommend...

The tire that is installed on this rim may have a different (lower) load rating and if sold together as a pre-mounted wheel-with-tire the quoted rating will be that of the lower-rated of the two items. This is usually the tire rating. This wheel will accept tire sizes...

  • Will Rapid Hitch Ball Mount Kit Fit 2007 Mitsubishi Pajero Towing Trailer Requiring 50mm Hitch Ball
  • Since you mention that you do not need the double hitch ball option, my recommendation would be to go with an adjustable ball mount like the Hidden Hitch, # 80412, on your 2007 Mitsubishi Pajero. This ball mount offers a 6,000 pound capacity which would be sufficient since it exceeds the towing capacity of your vehicle. In addition to the adjustable ball mount, you would also need a hitch ball, pin, and clip. Although we do offer a 50 mm hitch ball, # 63912, it has a 3,500 pound capacity...

  • Trailer Brakes Disengage After Prodigy P2 Brake Controller is Activated

  • Best Trailer Tire Recommendation for a 12 Inch Rim
  • The difference between the two trailer sizes you referenced is that the 5.30-12 will be about 1-1/2 inches taller than the 4.80-12 and would have more capacity. As long as your trailer has the clearance for a slightly taller and wider tire a 5.30-12 would be a great option. However, either would have enough capacity and wouldn't offer a significant ride quality improvement over the other. All things being equal I would go with the larger tire as it will spin slower at the same speed...

The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. The green wires that you have found on the brake controller port would not be needed to...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Blinkers that Both Blink When Either Turn Signal is Applied
  • It sounds like you have the blinker circuit of your 1998 F150 run to the running lights circuit on your trailer wiring so when the blinker is applied both of your running lights are flashing. Any time you see trailer lighting that illuminates dimly when the wrong circuit is applied is usually indicates that there is a weak ground on the trailer wiring circuit. How that all works is beyond me, but what you will want to do is return the trailer to the previous wiring configuration you...

  • Roller Bunk Recommendations for 8 Foot Long Bunks
  • That depends on how much of the bunks your boat is currently using. If when your boat is loaded on the trailer the hull makes contact with all 8 feet of your bunks then I would go with two 4 foot sections like part # DL21740. If the hull doesn't touch all of it a single 5 foot section would do well, for that part # DL21741.

  • Hitch and Towing Capacity Recommendation for a 2014 Infinity QX70
  • When determining the overall towing capacity of a vehicle you must always go with the lowest rated component as the overall capacity since the setup is only as strong as it's weakest component. The Curt Hitch part # 13554 can handle 4,000 lbs of trailer, but your vehicle can only handle 2,000 so 2,000 lbs would be your overall capacity. For trailer wiring you would want part # 118593. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900....

  • Where is the Set Screw on a Diversi-Tech Locking Ball Mount to Remove Lock Core
  • To install the Diversi-Tech Replacement Locking Cylinders, # DTLBM02RK, on a locking Diversi-Tech ball mount, the opening to get to the set screw is located under the warning label that is on the top of the hitch. I called the supplier (Diversi-Tech) and they recommended when installing the replacement locks to first put some air tool oil in the hole where the set screw is located and let set for awhile. This will help break up the threadlock that secures the set screw in the ballmount....

  • Is there a Wheel Caster Available for Husky Brute Jacks
  • There are currently no wheel casters that are confirmed to work on the Husky Brute Jacks like part # HT87247. Husky doesn't offer any most likely because wheel casters don't have very high capacities and the Husky Brute jacks have pretty high capacities so having a wheel for them would greatly reduce the overall capacity of the jack setup. If your tongue weight happened to be under 600 lbs you could use a trailer dolly like part # MT70225 to move your trailer around.

  • Should Snow Chains be Removed When Driving on Dry Pavement
  • With snow chains and cables you would want to take them off whenever they aren't needed for a couple reasons. First, they would wear out very quickly this way. Especially since they would be used on dry pavement. And secondly because with snow chains you shouldn't drive faster than 30-35 miles per hour. I attached a couple snow chain FAQ articles to the right for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Length of Curt Bolt-Together Adjustable Weight Distribution Shank # C17122 Reduce Capacity
  • The longer Curt Weight Distribution Shank part # C17122 that you referenced will not reduce the capacity of your hitch. Hitch extenders reduce capacity by the increased leverage and the increased movement they create. Also, tongue weight affects weight distribution systems differently than a weight carrying setup, that is why this product has such a large gusset from the top piece and the lower piece and why it still has high capacities while being longer than most.

  • Does the Parking Brake Handle Have to Be Centered on the Trailer Frame
  • You would want to have the handle as centered as possible on your trailer frame so that it will activate your brakes as evenly as possible, but the cable can slide through the angled tube so if it isn't perfectly centered the overall tension in the cable will provide even tension on both brake assemblies.

  • Best Tire Pressure to Run in Specialty Trailer Tires
  • Special trailer tires should be inflated to their maximum air pressure. The value for the maximum air pressure should be listed along with the value for the maximum load on the tire's sidewall. These values will usually designate the maximum load at a maximum psi. For example, if the tire is rated at 1,610 lbs maximum at 65 psi, the tire can carry 1,610 lbs of weight if the air pressure is at the maximum of 65 psi. At the maximum air pressure, the tires will perform and wear best, and get...

  • Can the Blue Locking Piece of a Trailer 7-Way be Removed from the Connector Once its Locked
  • The blue locking piece you referenced unfortunately is not easily removed. In fact, there's basically no way to get it out without breaking it. The installers here have tried several times to get it out and always end up breaking it. The easiest solution I have for you would be to cut the wires behind the connector leaving enough room to reconnect them so that you can get the outlet and wires on the right side of your truck bed and then reconnect them once you get the 7-way mounted in...

  • Difference Between the Bulldog Wedge and the Collar Lock Couplers
  • The distance between the center of the ball hole to the center of the circle used for A-frame jacks on the part # BD44125W0317 that you referenced is 12-1/2 inches. I confirmed this with my contact at Bulldog. The advantages between the latching styles of the wedge latch in the # BD44125W0317 and the collar lock like in part # BD028499 is largely personal preference. But the wedge is easier to lock with an anti-theft device. The collar lock style is more rugged and crude design with...

  • Troubleshooting Truck Blinkers that Only Blink Once when Trailer is Connected
  • If I am understanding you correctly it sounds like when your trailer is connected to your truck and you activate either blinker your truck's blinker only blinks once then stops. This would lead me to believe that your blinker circuit is getting overdrawn by the trailer circuits which is preventing them from working. What I would recommend you do is replace your current trailer blinkers with LED blinkers as they will draw considerably less than incandescent bulbs which should prevent...

  • Recommendation of Turn Signal and Parking Light for Off-road use

The Optronics # MCL157AB could possibly be used as a turn signal but not recommended.

It sounds like someone removed the connector from the end of your brake controller wiring, what you would need to do to wire up your controller to the # C51453 would be to cut off the black connector on the harness and match the wires up color for color.

  • How to Prevent Condensation in a Cargo Box/Bag/Container
  • The best way to remove condensation from a cargo container like the etrailer.com Cargo Bag # 988501 would be to use dessicant to remove the moisture in the air. A desiccant is a hygroscopic substance that creates or maintains a state of dryness. Common desiccants include silica, activated charcoal, calcium sulfate, and calcium chloride. This is what most freight companies will use to prevent, "container sweat," like what you are trying to do.

  • Is it Possible to Install a Bull Bar and Front Hitch on a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Most likely it wouldn't work since it looks like the Westin Bull Bar part # 32-1690 and the Draw Tite Front Hitch part # 65062 that are both confirmed to fit your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 will use the same point on your frame to install. It could be possible to use longer installation hardware and secure both the hitch and the bull bar through the same mounting holes, but since that hasn't been tested I cannot safely recommend that.

With that being said, the Curt version of this harness, part # C56151, has been confirmed to fit the 2015 model so I can almost guarantee both harnesses would work for your vehicle. Since the Curt has been confirmed to fit your vehicle it would be the one I would recommend for you.
