  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Saab 9-3 with Dual Exhaust
  • The Curt Hitch part # C11140 would be the correct hitch for your 2008 Saab 9-3 with dual exhaust. I checked with Curt to confirm this. If you plan on doing some towing you would want the part # 119179KIT for trailer wiring, # C45521 for a ball mount, # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball, # 19258 for a 2 inch ball. Or for a bike rack the Swagman XTC # S64670 is a great rack. This is one of our most popular racks with our customers. It is a great rack at a great price that has a ton...

  • SumoSpring and Sway Bar Recommendation for a 2014 Thor Motorhome 35HT
  • For a SumoSpring kit for the front axle of your 2014 Thor motor home 35HT model that is built on a F-53 chassis the part # SSF-182-54 would work for you as it does not have the Thor model exclusion you mentioned. The # RM-1139-145 would be the correct sway bar for your as well as long as you have the Dana 150 rear axle and have a 18,000 GVWR rating. Up in the cab of your motorhome by the driver seat there should be plate with all of the specs of your motorhome listed there.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Express Van to Prevent Body Roll
  • What I would recommend to help with body roll on your 2008 Chevy Express 3500 cutaway is the SuperSprings Custom Suspension Stabilizer and Sway-Control Kit # SSA13. This product will reduce sway and sag greatly. A guy who works here put a similar set of these on his SUV and said that it helped greatly with body roll so I would recommend them for you .

  • Gasket Availability for the Bargman Triple Tail Light # 47-84-009
  • The best recommendation I could make would be to use a gasket maker like the Loctite Silicone Gasket Maker part # LT37464. I wish we carried a gasket specifically designed to work on the Bargman Triple Tail Light # 47-84-009 that you referenced but we do not. I have spoken to my contact at Bargman about this before and they told me that gaskets aren't used for these assemblies because if they are used they can trap condensation in the lens and it won't dry out. Without the gasket air...

  • Sway Bar Recommendation to Improve Ride Quality on a 2014 36 ft Challenger Motorhome
  • For what you are looking for I would recommend sway bars to improve the ride quality and drivability. They are bit more expensive than the SumoSprings that you referenced but they will greatly improve the ride quality of your motorhome. This will reduce the body roll and balance the weight transfer during corners. Typically people start with a rear sway bar like part # 1139-144 which is the correct kit for your motorhome. This will greatly improve the driving experience and then if that...

  • Hitch Adapter Recommendation for a Class V Hitch so that it Can Be Used with 2 inch Accessories
  • It sounds like you have a Class V hitch with a 2-1/2 inch opening on it. 2 inch hitches are more common so if you wanted an adapter to let you use 2 inch accessories the part # 58102 would be what you would need. I attached a couple FAQ articles to the right that explain the differences between the hitch sizes and the classifications.

  • 2015 Toyota Highlander XLE Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation
  • The Curt Harness part # 56042 that you referenced is designed as a replacement harness for vehicles like your 2015 Toyota Highlander that came with a factory 4-way. Although Toyota said you have the factory tow package it sounds like you are missing the necessary under dash converter. This is a Toyota part that they might be able to set you up with, but we don't carry it. The best solution I can recommend for you would be to get the part # C56217.

  • The CIPA Stick-On, Wide-Angle Viewing Lens # CM60100 that you referenced will install on the outside of your rear windshield. It sticks attaches by clinging to the glass, similar to how saran wrap clings to things. You will want to make sure the glass is as clean as possible.

  • Top of Shank to Bottom of Lower Ball in Lowest Setting for Diversi-Tech Ball Mount # DTSTBM6600
  • According to my measurements, when you have the Diversi-Tech ball mount # DTSTBM6600 in the lowest position it will measure approximately 11-1/2 inches from the top of the shank to the bottom of the lower ball. A safe estimate for making calculations at home is 12 inches to account for flex and any unknown variable.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter for Class I Hitch to a 2 Inch Receiver
  • You can use the hitch adapter # HTAD in your Class I trailer hitch. However, using an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. Most Class I hitches are rated for 200 pounds tongue weight or less. Using the adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity to 100 pounds.

  • Switching from Double-Eye Leaf Springs to Slipper Springs on a Triple Axle Trailer
  • The ride height is all going to depend on the springs, equalizers, and hangers. It may not be exactly the same but I am sure we can get it close to the same. The higher the capacity of the springs the stiffer the ride will be. Adding higher capacity springs will not increase the capacity of the trailer. You are still limited by the tires and wheels, axles, and trailer frame. For 7,000 pounds axles you will want springs rated for 3,500 pounds each, # 1203T3. The height of this spring...

  • Chains vs Cables for 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 4-Wheel Drive Pick Up Truck with LT275/70-R18 Tires
  • I recommend chains because they will have superior traction in snow and grip on ice. Cables and/or rollers have good traction in light snow and a relatively smooth ride. The Pewag # PWXMR81V you referenced will only work with 185/60-R15 size tires. The one I recommend is the diamond pattern Titan chain # TC2533. The diamond pattern will offer more tire coverage. The square link type will have squared edges providing more "bite". The ride is a little rougher versus others. I would...

  • All Trailer Lights Work Except for Brake Lights Towed by a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Trailers in the US have combined brake lights and turn signals meaning the brake light signals and turn signals are sent on the same wire, one on each side. Since the turn signals are working that indicates to me that you potentially have a blown stop light of CHMSL fuse (CHMSL stands for center high mount stop lamp). It could also be a fuse or relay associated with the tow package wiring. You will need to use the vehicle owners manual to find the fuse and/or relay locations for the...

  • How to Find Replacement Disc Brakes and Wheel Bearings for Rocket Boat # C2610B Trailer
  • To do what you're wanting to do, you'd need to contact the manufacturer of the trailer with the VIN. If you could provide me with the diameter of your rotors, their wheel bolt pattern, and the reference numbers from your inner and outer wheel bearings as well as the reference number from your grease seal, I'd be happy to recommend some replacement parts for you. If you can't make out the reference numbers, you can use a digital caliper to measure the journal surface on the spindle where...

  • Can Air Bags be Used if Leaves in Factory Suspension are Removed from 2012 Dodge Ram 3500
  • Air bags are meant to assist the factory suspension. Removing leaves in the leaf spring stack would reduce the capacity of the truck, despite having air bags, so that would not be a good idea. A truck bed step such as # TS2000-01 or # CAB-SG-2R would help you to get in and out of the bed easier and you would not have to worry about modifying the suspension or anything.

  • Which Kodiak Boat Buddy is Recommended for 17 Foot Boat
  • The Kodiak Boat Buddy for Drive-On Boat Trailers, part # KBB2, is intended for boats 21 feet or longer that have a 1/2-inch bow eye bolt diameter. Since your Bass Tracker boat has a length of 17 feet, a better fit is the original Boat Buddy, part # KBB1. This is similar to the part you referenced but is intended for crafts up to 21 feet in length. You will want to swap out your current bow eye for the 1/2 inch bow eye included with the kit. I spoke with my contact at Kodiak and he...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution for Forest River Rockwood Premier 2516G Towed By 2000 Pathfinder
  • To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. To that figure, add the weight of any gear stowed in the cargo area of the SUV or truck bed behind the rear axle. I've linked to an FAQ article that explains how to do this. These combined figures comprise the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your set-up. The TTW of your trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the weight...

  • Towing Capacity of 2014 Toyota Camry L-Series 4-Cylinder for Towing 5X9 Utility Trailer
  • According to my online research your 2014 Toyota Camry L-Series 4-Cylinder is not recommended by Toyota to tow a trailer of any weight. It is possible that certain versions of the vehicle could be properly equipped so as to have an approved towing capacity, but I suggest you refer to your specific vehicle's owner's manual, or provide your local dealership with your car's VIN number, to verify if it has a tow rating. I was not able to find a purchase history using your email address so...

  • Can Ball Mounts For 2 Inch Receivers Be turned Upside Down To Increase Height
  • Many of the ball mounts we offer that we offer that fit 2 inch receivers like part # 2753 which has a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop, that are designed to be able to use in a rise or drop position by simply turning it upside down, without losing any towing capacity. There are a few ball mounts out there that are designed to only be used in one position, so you will want to make sure any ball mount you use has both the rise and drop listed.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2014 Acura MDX
  • For your 2014 Acura MDX, I'd recommend the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, part # C13146. When installed, the hitch will be almost completely concealed behind the bumper, with only the receiver tube being visible. There isn't a Class I hitch available for your vehicle, but the 2 inch receiver is much more popular, and will have a much better selection of hitch mounted accessories like bike racks and cargo carriers available.

The front most part of the bar will be several inches from the back of the front wheel well. Not close enough to cause interference. The rear flaps would not be an issue at all.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights Not Functioning When Tow Vehicle Headlights Are Turned On

However, based on your description of the problem - all trailer lights working until you turn on the vehicle headlights - there is one most-likely cause that should be easy to correct. This type of issue is typically related to...

You will have to do a little bit of modification I am sure depending on how thick your walls are but that shouldn't be too hard. You will need to use a 12 volt power source for the vent. But it sounds like you will be using a solar panel or something similar so that shouldn't be a problem.

  • Is There a Factory Preset Amount of Tension the Curt Sway Control has to Start With
  • There really isn't a preset amount of tension that would have to be used as a starting point for setting up the # 17200. What I would do is install it on your trailer and then get it moderately tight by hand. No need to really torque it, and then take it for a test drive and adjust as needed.

  • How to Install the RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80500 on a 3 inch Wide Bumper
  • What you would need to do to install the RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80500 on your 3 inch fully welded bumper would be to come up with a 1 inch spacer to fit between the attachment point of the rack and the backside of the bumper. This rack requires at least a 4 inch wide bumper so the plate/adapter would be the best way to make this rack work. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • How to Get a Custom Printed Hitch Cover
  • I have a solution for you, but we don't have the ability to custom make print hitch covers. Instead I would recommend you get the part # AUT-BNK-C if you have a 2 inch hitch or part # AUT2-BNK-C if you have a 1-1/4 inch hitch and then have the picture you want sized to fit the cover and have it printed and attached. A sign shop local to you would have no problem doing this.

  • Bed Rail Cap Recommendation for a 2004 F150 FX4 5.5 Bed
  • I have a solution for you, but the part # P79860 that you referenced is just the rail that goes above the bed rails. If you are looking for a cap for the bed rails to replace what you currently have you would want something like the # P59586. These are stainless steel so they will last a very long time, and are confirmed to fit your vehicle.

  • Backup Camera Recommendation for a 2003 Chevy S10 that has a Remote Starter with 2.4ghz Frequency
  • Honestly if you have a 2.4ghz frequency remote starter on your vehicle there really isn't going to be a way for the Peak Performance Wireless Backup Camera # PKC0RB to work as well as it could. This camera can work great, but is very sensitive to interference from that frequency. A camera that gets hardwired in like the part # HM60195VA would be a better option. I attached an install video for this camera for you to check out.

  • Snowboard Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Forester with Raised Side Rails
  • I checked with Thule and while I have a solution for you that will allow you carry snowboards with your 2014 Subaru Forester with raised siderails the part # TH5401 is not a confirmed fit. Instead you would want to first start with Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack part # TH7502-TH7502 and then use a roof rack mounted snowboard carrier like part # TH92726. I attached review videos for both products.

  • Reese Elite Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Super Duty Long Bed
  • The # RP30073 that you referenced is an Elite series rail kit that is confirmed to fit your truck that will work with Elite hitches like the part # # RP30142. For a gooseneck hitch to work with this system you would want the part # RP30845. The Hide-A-Goose Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with Installation Kit # 9465-40 that you referenced is a gooseneck hitch designed to fit older Chevy trucks so it would definitely not work for an Elite fifth wheel hitch in your 2008 Ford truck.

  • Mounting a CE Smith Motorycle Rail # CE26110PG on a Shorelander PWC Trailer
  • Judging by the picture you submitted it does look like the CE Smith Motorcycle Rail # CE26110PG you have on your trailer is flexing a bit under the weight of your Honda Magna. What I would recommend you do is either move the rail back a bit on the frame of your trailer, or if you really like where it is at take the trailer to a qualified fabricator and have him weld another rail under the ramp under where the front wheel is to add bracing. While this ramp is pretty sturdy, you have...

  • Recommended Ways to Power a Winch on a Trailer
  • The best way to power the winch on your trailer would be to have a large battery installed on the trailer that will power the winch and then use the 12 volt accessory circuit from the 7-way on your truck to put a maintenance charge on the battery. Or if you have a Superwinch brand winch with up to a 16.5k capacity you could get the Trailer and Vehicle Electric Winch Wiring Kit, for up to 16.5K Winches # SW2008. This sounds more like what you would want. This will run a power wire from...

  • Can a 225/75R15 Trailer Tire Replace a 205/75R15 Trailer Tire
  • You should have no problem installing a 225/75R15 on a rim that previously had a 205/75R15, but you should note that 205 is designed to fit 5 to 6-1/2 inch wide rims and the 225 is designed to fit 6 to 7 inch wide rims. You might verify your current rim size first. Also, the 225 will be almost an 1-1/2 inches taller than your previous tire. You'll want to make sure you have the clearance. If all that checks out the tire I would recommend is the # AM10303. This is a Load Range E tire.

  • Assisted Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a 2008 Dodge Nitro with Factory Crossbars
  • I did some checking and it looks like your 2008 Dodge Nitro would have came with factory crossbars. So for an assisted kayak carrier that is confirmed to fit those bars I would recommend the Thule Slipstream XT Roof Mounted Kayak Carrier System with Roller # TH887XT. This will support 50 percent of the weight of the kayak when loading which will make loading and unloading much easier. Check out the review video I attached for more info on this carrier.

  • Roller Bunk Replacement Recommendation for a Boat Trailer with 19 foot Boat

What I would recommend you do is remove the ones you currently have and install the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunk # DL21741 in place of them. These are 5 feet long. For brackets you may also want the part # DL21742 depending on how your trailer is currently set up. If you are looking for a set of guide-ons the part # CE27660 that you referenced as long as your trailer frame isn't larger...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights Not Functioning when Using an Aftermarket Flasher Unit on Trailer
  • If I am understanding you correctly it sounds like the problem is the module you have installed on your trailer that makes the trailer lights flash fast, slow, and then stay solid. If when that is bypassed everything works fine you have narrowed the problem down to it being the problem. You can either replace the module or bypass it. If the problem is intermittent it could be that the module doesn't like to work under certain circumstances due to it being faulty. Like if it gets warm,...

  • Grille Guard for 2005 Dodge Ram Recommendation
  • There was a generation change between the 2005 and 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 so the two vehicles would take two different grille guards. The 2006 would take the part # 57-1955 that you referenced and the 2005 would take a # 40-1205 for the most similar style grille guard since Westin does not offer an HDX for the 2005s. I attached a link to the right that has all of the grille guards we carry that are confirmed to fit your 2005 Ram.

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

  • Hitch Cargo Carrier with Ground Clearance Recommendation for a 2013 Nissan Altima
  • Since all of the hitches available for the 2013 Nissan Altima are Class I hitches like the part # C11352 you will want a carrier that is Class I compatible with as much rise as possible so that you get the best ground clearance. Hitch adapters aren't recommended normally for Class I hitches because they cut the already low capacity of the hitch in half so that wouldn't be a route I would recommend. The cargo carrier that has the most rise in the shank that we offer that would work on...

For the hardware to attach the brackets to the rails you would want part # RP58430. You should note that the # RP50081 is only confirmed to fit the following vehicles: 2004 - 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed 2004 - 2014 Ford F-150 6-1/2 Foot Bed 2004 - 2014 Ford F-150 8 Foot Bed

  • Difference Between the Superwinch LP10000 and the Tiger Shark Series Winches
  • While we don't carry the Superwinch LP10000 winch we do know that it is an intermediate level winch with a lot of great features whereas the Tiger Shark Series like the part # SW1595200 that you referenced is more of an entry level winch. Just comparing the specs between the two winches I was surprised to see that the Tiger Shark does have a higher horsepower motor as well as the higher gear ratio meaning that it would reel the wire in a little bit faster. It does have a slightly lower...

  • Recommendations for a Trailer with Inertia Brakes that Need Replacement Parts

Also, the closest assembly we carry to what you have would be 8-1/2 by 2-1/4 inches. You might want to remeasure your assemblies otherwise you would have to replace your hub and drums as well as the assemblies....

  • Installation of the Wiring Harness Brake Controller Functions on a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer

Find the one wire that has 12V power all the time, one that has power only when you press the brake pedal, and two that carry no voltage when tested. Remove the quick connector plug on the brake controller # HM47295 and splice the 4 wires to the function wires under the dash. The 4 wires on the brake controller...

  • Recommended Trailer Tire for a 4x8 Foot Utility Trailer with a Maximum Weight Rating of 1,180 Pounds

Based on your 4x8 utility trailer that has a maximum weight rating of 1,180 pounds you will be just fine hauling your 800 pound motorcycle.

  • Tips for Mounting a Trailer Roof Vent on a Ford E-250 Van

I would say if the bottom of the flange that mounts to the roof is more than a 1/4 inch from the top of the roof you would need to use spacers of some kind to bridge the gap and then use the sealant.
