  • Will a Programmer Hurt a 1999 Powerstroke and/or a 2008 Powerstroke Ford Truck
  • That really depends on the current condition of both of your trucks and how you plan on using the additional power that the # EP16030 would give either of your trucks. If both trucks are in good mechanical condition and you don't abuse either truck too hard with the programmer turned all the way up you should be fine. If your transmissions are hurt and you go and enter into a truck pull contest with the programmer turned all the way up you would be asking for trouble. Also, you should...

  • How to Determine the Right Replacement Pin Box Needed for a 2004 Montana Mountaineer 318 BHM
  • There should be a plate or sticker on the pin box of your trailer that lists what pin box manufacturer and model number is on the trailer. With that information you can pick out the correct Trailair pin box. If you don't have the plate or sticker, you will need to measure the bolt holes of the pin box to determine which one you have. I have included a link to the pin boxes we offer and an FAQ that shows how to measure a pin box for you to view.

  • Fifth Wheel Adapter Recommendation for a 2005 Ford F-250 with Hide-a-Goose Hitch
  • Sounds like you have the Hide-a-Gooseneck Hitch # 9460-48 in the bed of your 2005 Ford F-250. The only fifth wheel adapter you can use that will allow you to retain your gooseneck hitch is the Hi-Rise part # 9480. This will install in the gooseneck hitch and will provide you with a fifth wheel hitch. There's no way to use your Husky hitch with your gooseneck hitch.

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for a Heavy Boat Trailer with C-Channel Frame
  • 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 tow vehicle. I attached an FAQ on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. Based on the weight of your trailer you will need a higher rated system, something like the # RP66130 could work as long as your tongue weight fell within it's range, 800...

  • What is a Sidewinder and Why Won't the Curt Q-Series Hitches Work with Them
  • A Sidewinder or Reese Revolution pin box is a very specific style of pin box replacement that allows short bed trucks to make tight turns without having to use a slider hitch. You would know if your trailer had one most likely. For more information on them check out the FAQ article I attached to the right. The jaws of the Q-Series Curt hitches are too wide for them to work with the Sidewinders.

  • Are the Mounting Brackets Fixed or Adjustable on the Blue Ox 3-Receiver Trailer Hitch
  • The mounting brackets that come with the Blue Ox 3-receiver hitch # SC9000 are not fixed meaning you can adjust them before permanently installing the hitch. This particular hitch is designed only for Class A motor homes that have frame rails that extend all the way back to the end of the vehicle. Welded on extensions will not work. I have linked the installation instructions for you.

  • Will B&W Companion Fifth Wheel Fit Factory Towing Prep Package On 2015 Ford F-450
  • I do have a couple of options that will work for you and a 2015 Ford F-450. My recommendation is to reduce the dealer cost and install a B&W Turnoverball Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch w/ Custom Installation Kit, part # BWGNRK1111. This would give you the gooseneck hitch in the bed of your truck and allow you to use the B&W Companion, part # BWRVK3400-5W you already have. Since the B&W Companion will not fit another manufacturer's system the other option would be to have the OEM...

  • Air Suspension Enhancement Recommendation For 2012 Ford F-250 4 X 4 Crew Cab
  • We do offer a great air suspension system that will work for your 2012 Ford F-250 4 X 4. I recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2535. This system will help stabilize your suspension and improve the ride quality when carrying heavy loads. These air bags adjust individually to help compensate for uneven loads. Everything is included with this system for installation on your truck. To enhance the system even more I recommend the Firestone Dual Electric Air Command,...

  • Difference Between Bulldog Powder Coated and Zinc Finish 5,000 Pound A-Frame Trailer Jacks
  • The difference is just as you have said. Bulldog jack # BD1700100317 is powder coated while # BD1700100301 has a zinc finish which makes it better for marine applications. Both are rated for 5,000 pounds, have 15 inches of lift, and install the same way with the same 3-hole mounting flange. I have linked video reviews for each jack for you.

  • Instructions to Wire Dump Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • I would use the RV-Style Trailer Connector, # PK12706, which you reference, and install the wires in the proper locations in the 7-Way connector. Our wiring page, see link, has photos that detail the wiring configuration of the 7-Way RV trailer connector for you to check out. You will need to test the functions of each wire using a 12 volt battery to determine their function. Once you know the function, you can use our trailer connector wiring diagram to make the proper connections.

  • Will Firestone Air Bags from a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Fit a 2012 Ford F-250
  • The Firestone Ride-Rite air springs for the 2007 Dodge Ram 2500, # F2299, use a completely different bracket systems than the ones for the 2012 Ford F-250 (# F2535 for a diesel or # F2550 for a gas motor). The kits are not interchangeable between the two trucks. All 3 kits do use the same air bags but everything else is different. By the time you piece together all of the brackets and hardware for the new truck it would end up costing about the same (in some cases more) than a complete...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution/Sway Control System for 30-Ft. 6K Trailer Towed by 2010 F-250 V8
  • The key to selecting the correct weight distribution/sway control system is to know your trailer's actual fully-loaded ready-to-tow tongue weight just as it will be when you head out - meaning full water and propane tanks, supplies, gear, toys (and beer!) all loaded. Sherline makes a handy scale for measuring tongue weight, part # 5780, but there are other ways to measure that are outlined in the linked article. Total tongue weight must also include the weight of anything in the truck...

  • Firestone Air Bag Kit Recommendation for a Diesel 2012 Ford F-250 4x4
  • We get this question occasionally and what our contacts at Firestone always advise is to just go ahead and get a new kit designed specifically for your vehicle like the # F2535 since you have a diesel engine in your 2012 Ford F-250. The # F2550 would be the correct kit if you had a gas engine. By the time you pieced together all the brackets and hardware it would cost more than just buying the new kit, plus you will be saving yourself the headache of picking out all of the components.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-350 Short Bed with Hitch Prep
  • Congrats on the new truck and trailer purchase! Since your 2015 Ford F350 has a short bed you will need a slider hitch, and since it has the fifth wheel hitch prep package you would want the Reese Elite Hitch with Slider for Ford Hitch Prep Packages part # RP30144 that is designed to fit your underbed rail system. This is one of the nicest hitches on the market that would be an excellent choice for you.

  • Is the Rampage Trail Can Locking Toolbox # RA86619 Weatherproof
  • The design of the Rampage Trail Can Locking Toolbox # RA86619 would prevent most moisture from getting into the contents of the box. But there isn't any type of moisture seals on the drawers or lid so I wouldn't leave it out in the rain if you can avoid it. It will be basically just as weather proof as a normal toolbox. I attached a review video for more information for you to check out.

  • Troubleshooting a Trailer that Taillights, Blinkers Both Flash and Only One Running Light
  • It sounds like the problem is the wiring of your truck like it sounds you have determined already. What I would do is use a circuit tester like part # 3808 to test the circuits of your 7-way while a buddy applies the different taillight functions. Use the diagram I attached to the right for more info. The problem could be as simple as corrosion on the connector that needs to be cleaned off (inside or outside of the connector), or it could be that the wires of the connector have shorted...

  • B and W Turnover Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for a 2000 Ford F-250
  • We do not offer the side plate brackets for the # BWGNRK1108 that has been confirmed to fit your 2000 Ford F-250. I checked with B and W to confirm this. You will need to contact where you purchased this hitch from and tell them you are missing the side brackets. The # BWGNRK1108 would be the correct hitch for your vehicle, you might verify that is the part number you have. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out.

  • For your 2003 Ford F-250 the Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, part # 90195 with the Tekonsha Plug-In Adapter, part # 3035-P should make the connection under the dash very simple. At times the truck connector can be taped, zip-tied, or just tucked up among the wiring under the dash. You will have to remove the cover to get to the connector as the attached installation video shows. Sometimes it is a bit tough to get the plug to move but it can be moved to allow you to just plug in the adapter. If...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up When Connected to Trailer Wiring
  • This is a fairly common problem for trailer setups that use 6-way connectors like the # PK11604 that you referenced. The issue is that there is two accepted ways the connector can be wired up. The only difference between the two setup is that the brake output circuit and the 12 volt accessory circuits are swapped. It sounds like your vehicle is wired one way and the trailer is wired the other way. What you will need to do is swap the two circuits on either the trailer or the truck....

  • Horse Trailer Brakes Lock Up When Connected to 1999 Ford F-250
  • It sounds like either the trailer side connector is not pinned to match the vehicle side connector or there is a short circuit (possibly due to corrosion on the pin or inside the trailer connectors) causing the brakes on the trailer to lock up. The easiest thing to check first is for dirt/corrosion on the pins and inside each of the trailer connectors. Then you can make sure that the trailer side connector is wired up to work properly with the vehicle side connector. I have included...

  • A universal 5th wheel base rail kit like the Reese # RP30035 will be positioned slightly differently depending on the vehicle into which it is to be installed. If you refer to the linked instructions you'll see on page 12 the installation details for your 2005 Ford F-350. The rear base rail will be positioned so that it's rear edge is 32-1/2-inches forward of the rear edge of the truck bed (not the tailgate).

  • Replacement Pin Box Recommendation for a Lippert 1621 to Reduce Chucking
  • To answer your first question, the part # LC1191191 that you referenced would be an exact replacement for the pin box you currently have on your trailer. For the absolute best in prevention of both vertical and horizontal chucking I would recommend the Ultra-Fab Trailair Tri-Glide Air Ride 5th Wheel King Pin # UF35-946229. This is designed as an exact replacement for what you have on your trailer and unlike most other cushioned pin boxes this one is designed to cushion both horizontal...

  • Dim Brake Lights Turn Signals After 7-Way Install

The other issue is that maybe your trailer is having a ground problem. Make sure that the vehicle side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. The main connector grounds should be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. The light grounds should also be attached...

  • Towing Mirror Recommendations for a 1999 Ford F-250

These are telescoping tow mirrors that will replace your current mirrors and will allow you to electronically adjust them as well. These will telescope out an additional 3-1/2 inches. If you need more range than that you would want the CIP Mirrors part # 72100 as they can slide out 4-1/4 inches.

  • I checked the online copy of the owner's manual for the 2008 Ford F350, and saw that Ford only recommends using Class S chains on your vehicle. A Class S chain will add 15 mm or less height or width to the inside of the tire. Typically, a vehicle manufacturer will recommend Class S chains only when there is a risk of thicker, heavier chains damaging something to the inside of the tires, like steering, braking or suspension components. I'd recommend you consult your owner's manual or your...

  • Troubleshooting Factory Trailer Wiring for 2003 Ford F250
  • First I recommend cleaning the connector and make sure there is no corrosion on the pins. Check the wires at the back of the plug. You may need to remove the wires from the connector as corrosion can build up in the connector. If all of the connection points are corrosion free, then begin testing the wires themselves. Since you are not receiving a signal on some of the pins I recommend tracing those wires back till you find a point where the signal is active. It may be that connection...

I do recommend doing a quick test fit of the covers before removing the adhesive backing to ensure that you have the positioning correct.

Check out the install video I attached for more info. Once installed the Reese Hitch part # RP30033 that you also referenced would be a great choice for a hitch if you have an 8 foot bed.

  • You have a couple options, but I cannot recommend you modify the mounting bracket of your air spring kit that you have installed.

The other option you have would be to use the # RP56005-53 that you referenced and then go with a different air bag kit that is confirmed to work with fifth wheel rails like the part # F2550.

These springs provide additional support to help stabilize and level the Ford F-250 while providing a more comfortable ride by absorbing road shock and improving roll stability.

There are sometimes fit problems using aftermarket ball mounts and shanks in the 2010-2012 Ford OEM Class V hitches. The OEM hitch uses a more rounded radius in the corners of the receiver tube, which sometimes can prevent aftermarket accessories from being installed in the hitch.

  • How to Install a Companion Fifth Wheel Hitch on a Flat Bed Truck
  • Since you have a flatbed on your truck now the only recommended way to use a Companion hitch will be to first use the # BWGNRK1500 as a gooseneck hitch and then for a fifth wheel hitch you would need the # BWRVK3050. The # BWGNRK1108 that you had previously installed on your truck is not compatible with flatbed trucks so there would be no recommended way for you to use it.

From a previous question you asked I was able to determine that your trailer has a Sidewinder pin box installed on it, so the # HT31326-31314 will work for you although it is a stationary hitch and you have...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Ford F250 Towing Trailer with Reese Revolution
  • We have exactly what you need. I would recommend an under bed rail system for your 2013 f250 super duty 6 3/4 foot bed so that you will have complete truck bed access when the hitch isn't being used in your truck. For that you would want the Reese Elite Underbed Rail Kit part # RP30126. Since you have a Reese Revolution pin box on your trailer you won't need a slider hitch to make 90 degree turns. So you would want a stationary hitch instead. For that you would want the part # RP30142...

  • Length of Wiring Harness on Pollak 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Wiring Harness # PK11893-11932
  • Are you sure about that bed length? Ford only offered that short bed on the F150, not the F250. The wiring harness would install inline with the US car connector behind the existing 7-way on your bumper. It would then need to work its way forward of the wheel well and up the bedside to the area you're wanting to install the in-bed 7-way. If you could run the harness in a straight line from point A to point B, it would work just fine but because you'll need to work around the spare tire...

  • Recommended Gooseneck Hitch Compatible Firestone Ride Rite Air Bag Kit for 2002 Ford F250 4x4
  • I'd recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2550 Kit. The kit will bolt to the frame using existing holes, and will not interfere with a gooseneck or fifth wheel hitch installation. The kit is typically installed so that the Schrader valves terminate at the rear bumper, but a compressor kit like part # F2158 would allow you to add or remove air from the system using a switch installed in the truck cab. I'll link you to install videos for both the air bag and the compressor kits, as well...

  • Does the Strait-Line Weight Distribution # RP66130 Come with a Shank
  • Actually the Strait-Line Weight Distribution # RP66130 does not come with a shank so if you needed one for a 2-1/2 inch hitch you would want the part # RP54977, or if you have a 2 inch hitch you would want the part # RP54970 instead. I attached a review video and installation instruction links to the right for you to check out plus an FAQ on weight distributions systems.

  • Does the Reese Goose Box Provide More Clearance for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with Short Bed Truck
  • The Reese Goose Box, # RP94622-61301, does not offer additional clearance for short bed trucks above what the stock pin box would offer. To get extra clearance and to keep the Goose Box you would need to use an offset gooseneck ball, if available for the gooseneck trailer hitch you have. If you can tell me the make and model of the gooseneck hitch I can determine if we have an offset ball. The other option would be to put the stock pin box on the trailer and use the Andersen Ultimate...

  • Can ST235/80R16 Tire Be Used as a Spare on 5th Wheel That Has ST235/85R16 Tires
  • Both of the trailer tire sizes you referenced, ST235/80R16 and ST235/85R16, fit the same wheel sizes. Both will fit 16-inch wheels with widths of 6-, 6-1/2-, 7- and 7-1/2-inches. The dimension that differs between these two tires is their overall diameter when they are inflated to their rated pressures. ST235/80R16 tires will have an overall diameter of approximately 30.9-inches while a fully-inflated ST235/85R16 tire's overall diameter will be approximately 31.6-inches. The other...

  • The 10-36 seal is part # RG06-070 which is a pair of seals. This seal has an inner diameter of 2.25 and an outer diameter of 3.376. You would want to verify your seal's outer diameter first before you order this seal. For an individual seal you would want part # GS-2250DL. This seal has the closest dimensions to the ones you listed.

  • Dexter Hub Recommendation that has 8 on 6-1/2 in Bolt Pattern and 9/16 in Studs
  • I believe the part number you are looking for is the 8-218-9UC3. This is a 8 on 6-1/2 inch hub/drum that has 9/16 in studs. This has an 8k capacity and is designed for oil bath hubs. For an EZ lube grease hub version you would want the part # 8-285-11UC3. To verify that these hubs will work to replace what you have you will need to make sure the bearing numbers are the same. These hubs has a 25580 inner bearing and a 02475 outer bearing. I tried searching everywhere I could think...

  • Sway Control for a Trailer and 2006 Ford F-250 that Already has Weight Distribution
  • Since the trailer weighs 8,000 pounds you will need to use 2 friction anti-sway bars since they are only functional up to 6,000 pounds gross trailer weight. You can use 2 of # 83660. It is going to be a little tricky though since you already have a weight distribution system. You would have to have some tabs welded to the head, # 3442, for one. You would have to ask the manufacturer of the system if these tabs can be welded on. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional...

  • Available Products to Hold Loose End of a Ratchet Strap

This Softride strap measures 12- x 1-inch and this might be your most cost-effective option. These hook-and-loop fastener straps are lightweight and easy to store and they can be re-purposed for a variety of applications.

The Sidewinder like you referenced is compatible with the Husky Hitch part # HT31326-31314. You are correct, since you have a Sidewinder you won't need a slider hitch.

  • Recommendation of a Aluminum Ladder Rack for a 2012 Ford F250 Super Duty with a 8 Foot Bed
  • The TracRac ladder rack # TA27000-01 you referenced won't fit your 2012 Ford F-250 8 Foot bed. What I recommend, is not aluminum but within your budget, is the K2 # K2TFR150. It's a combination ladder and headache rack that will also flip down to haul cargo. The maximum weight capacity is 500 pounds. If you are willing to exceed your budget, go with the TracRac Pro2 # TA37003. It's an aluminum ladder rack and has a carrying capacity of 1,000 pounds. I have included a video review...

  • Can 12-Volt Circuit Breaker # PK54240PL Be Left Exposed to the Elements When Installed
  • I wouldn't recommend leaving any electrical connection, including the ones made on a circuit breaker like part # PK54240PL exposed directly to the weather. Exposure to water could cause the circuit to short out. A junction box like part # 38656 provides a excellent weatherproof place for electrical connections like joining a trailer connector such as # H20046 to the lighting and brake circuits of a trailer, but it would also work extremely well for protecting circuit breakers from the...

  • Installation of Backup Camera on 2013 Crossroads Sunset Trail Camper

You could install this camera at the back of the camper and along with the towing mirrors, like # CM11900, you will have full visibility around your trailer while towing. It transmits up to 125 ft. There are no batteries to charge or wires to run as the monitor plugs into your cigarette lighter port and the camera plugs into the 4-Way connector at the back of the camper. It runs off...

To check for a bad relay, the easiest thing to do is to use a known good relay in place of a possible bad one. If the function starts working then you know that was the problem. Relays could be obtained from an auto parts store or from your local Ford dealer. I have...

  • 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.

Unfortunately, the Reese Elite Series Gooseneck Hitch will not work with your truck. I recommend the Draw-Tite Gooseneck, part # 9460-48. Only the safety chain loops and ball are visible in the truck bed when this is installed, which gives you full access to the bed of your truck. For the fifth wheel...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch for Pulling Car Hauler Trailer with Varying Weight Loads
  • The key for a weight distribution system to properly move trailer tongue weight forward to the tow vehicle's front axle is to match the system to the trailer's fully-loaded tongue weight. Systems rated too low will not have enough tension to redistribute the trailer weight forward and systems rated too high for the actual tongue weight can result in jumpy or erratic handling. In addition to your trailer's measured tongue weight you need to include in the equation the weight of anything...
