  • Hitch and Extender Recommendation for a 2004 Ford Super Duty with Camper Installed
  • Yes you can use the Curt Hitch part # C15810 to tow your trailer with your setup. You will also need the Reese Titan Hitch Extender part # RP45292 to give you enough extension to tow a trailer with your 2004 Ford F250 that has a camper installed. This will install into the 2-1/2 inch hitch opening and will provide a 2 inch opening for a ball mount for your trailer.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Ford F250 Crew Cab
  • I would personally recommend going with the Curt Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C14355, for your 2006 Ford F250 Crew Cab. This hitch is specifically designed for your Ford F-250 and will bolt directly to your frame with no welding required. In order to be fully prepared to tow, you may also need Trailer Wiring, # C56032, and Ball Mount Kit, # EBMK2416.

  • Recommended Replacement Clearance/Side Marker Lights For 1993 Class C RV
  • I spoke with my contact at Bargman and they told me that they no longer make the replacement lens for your 68 Series lights you have on your 1993 Classic C RV. They told me the closest light assembly they have to your lights are part # 34-17-808 for the red clearance side marker light, and part # 34-17-809 for the amber light. I pulled one of these from the warehouse and took some measurements for you. I have attached a photo that has the dimensions marked. This light measures 3-7/8...

  • Will Edge Insight Affect Performance When Installed On 2003 Ford F-250 Diesel
  • The Edge Insight CTS, part # EP83830 can only display data and is not able to adjust or tune your engine itself, so there should be no problem installing this on your 2003 Ford Diesel. This monitor can view up to 8 parameters at one time and has a Mileage coach that helps monitor fuel economy. For a custom dash pod I recommend part # EP18300-98003. This mounts to the dash of your truck and gives it a factory-installed look.

  • Why Do You Measure In the Truck Bed to Determine Where the Fifth Wheel Rails Will Install
  • The reason you want to measure in the truck bed and drill is so you know where to drill the holes through the truck bed. From the underside of the truck bed there usually isn't room to use the brackets as a template and then drill upwards. So instead you measure and drill in the truck bed and then attach the rails to the brackets on the underside of the bed. I attached the video you referred to.

  • Weight Distribution Shank with a 10 Inch or Greater Rise
  • If your current weight distributing shank has an 8 inch rise and is currently 28 inches from the ground, then the # RP3215 would give you a 10-1/4 inch rise if you're using a round bar system or a 11-1/2 inch rise if you're using a trunnion system. Whether you're using a round bar or a trunnion system, either way you'd have at least the extra two inches of rise you're looking for. I'm curious about what kind of trailer you're pulling that the coupler height needs to be 30 inches above...

  • Will a B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit a 2006 Ford F-350 with Firestone Air Bags 2400
  • Since the B&W installation kit # BWGNRK1108-5W also uses a 3/4 inch bolt in the center hole that Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2400 uses, and because the hitch brackets mount to the outsides of the frame and the air bag brackets on the insides of the frame, these 2 components will work together. Installation kit # BWGNRK1108-5W is correct for a 2006 Ford F-350 long bed or short bed. Hitch # BWRVK3500-5W is the correct hitch for a long bed. For a short bed use # BWRVK3400-5W. Once the...

  • Can a Slider 5th Wheel Trailer be Used in the Lowest Height Setting
  • For all slider hitches, including Reese R16 # RP30869 you will not be able to use the lowest height setting. The hitch will not be able to slide properly if you tried to use it in the lowest position. Modifying the hitch will void its warranty and make it potentially unsafe for use. The pin box on the trailer could also be raised which would lower the overall height of the front of the trailer. But you need to make sure you have 4 to 6 inches of space between the tops of the bed sides...

  • Comparing the Curt Q24 and Reese R20 and 20K 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches
  • The lube plate that comes with Curt 5th wheel trailer hitch # C16245 is 10 inch lube plate # 16721. It is a standard plastic lube plate. The Reese 20K hitch # RP30081 has a superior jaw. It is a single jaw that hooks around the king pin. The jaw on the Curt hitch is a double jaw. Still very secure though. And Reese 20K hitch # RP30867 has a double jaw as well but it has gear-like teeth that make a more secure connection than other dual-jaw hitches. For ride quality the Curt hitch...

  • Will Firestone Air Bags Fit a 2013 Ford F-250 with B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • It looks like the B&W Turnover ball gooseneck hitch has brackets that fit the outsides of the frame rails on the 2013 Ford F-250. And Firestone kit # F2535 has brackets that fit the insides. Both brackets can use the same hole. That isn't to say that the parts are made for each other. There could be some modification required if the holes do not match up. Though technically it would work this would void the warranty on the part(s) modified. If you could email me pictures of the problem...

  • Will BAKFlip Tonneau Cover # BAK26310 Fit Over 5th Wheel in 2009 Ford F250 SD Crew Cab 6-Ft Bed
  • The BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26310 is a low-profile cover sits inside your truck bed rails. In order to determine if it will fit over your Reese Elite hitch you will just need to check whether the hitch head or release handle sit above the height of the truck's rails. If not then this cover will fit. It may be necessary to remove the release handle from the hitch and/or lower the height of the hitch head to clear the rails. A video on this cover is linked for you.

  • Troubleshooting Right Turn Stop Signal Not Functioning on a 2000 Ford F350 7-Way
  • The problem is somewhere between the 7-way connector and the wiring of your truck. You can try cleaning the pin on the inside of your 7-way. Corrosion or dirt on the pin can cause the circuit not to function. Even if it doesn't look that dirty try using some fine grit sandpaper to get the pin down to bare metal. Other places to check is the back of the 7-way. There might be corrosion there that needs to be cleaned. Also, check for exposed wire and fix as necessary. Aside from that you...

  • Kelsey Brake Controller Not Working with Manual Override on a 1997 Ford F-350

I have seen controllers do strange thing when the leveler was off.

  • How to Determine if a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Will Fit Unknown Rails in a 2004 Ford F-250
  • It will be easy to determine if an industry standard hitch will fit the rails, even if we can't identify the brand and model. Take a look at the picture I have included that shows the spacing of where a hitch fits in industry standard rails. Then compare these measurements to your rails. If they are the same then you will be able to install a hitch that fits in industry standard rails such as # RP30081.

  • Do Any of the Tube Steps/Nerf Bars Attach to the Frame of a 2014 Ford F-250 Crew Cab
  • All of the tube steps we carry for your 2014 Ford F-250 crew cab, see link to the right, attach to the rocker panel. The frame is too far under the truck. The brackets would have to be so long that stepping on the tube step would produce a lot of torque at the attachment points and could damage the frame.

  • Adapting 2002 Ford F350 w/ Fixed Wallace Forge Gooseneck Ball to Tow 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Although we don't offer a fifth wheel hitch that will attach to the ball, there are some adapters that might work for you. The adapters can place strain on the trailer frame and in some cases void the warranty, but if your Fifth Wheel uses a Lippert # 1621, 1621HD or Fabex PB-600 pin box, you can replace the pin box with a Reese Goose Box, part # RP94622. If your fifth wheel has a Lippert 0115, 1116 or 1716, you could use the # RP94622-61301 Goose Box. Lippert, who builds the frames used...

  • Will a Fisher XV2 Snowplow and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch Fit on a 2015 Ford F-350
  • I compared the installation instructions for the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch, # 65049, and the Fisher XV2 Plow for your 2015 Ford F-350 and it appears that it is the same case as the 2009 F-350. The mounting kit for the plow and the hitch install at the same location on the frame and use the same bolt holes. Stacking the brackets is not recommended and would likely void the manufacturers warranties. If a front mount hitch is more important than a plow, then I would recommend using a...

I have provided links for each truck that will show you all compatible goose neck hitches. While adapters do provide a handy way to tow a 5th wheel with a goose neck hitch, most have drawbacks. Some adapters will induce stress in the trailer frame. Others may provide less-than-ideal ride quality. Please refer to the...

  • Will Yakima BigStack Kayak Carrier Fit Yakima BedRock System in a 2006 Ford F-250 Long Bed
  • The bars that are used with the BedRock towers # Y01140 are the same Yakima round bars used on a roof rack. The Yakima BigStack # Y04041 will fit those bars. Since your 2006 Ford F-350 has the long bed there shouldn't be any clearance issues with the front of the kayak(s) and the truck cab that would create too much rear overhang at the back of the truck. So in other words you should be good to go. Just make sure that the center to center distance between the crossbars in the truck bed...

Then you can use a tonneau cover that installs on the insides of the bed rails such as the ones in the links I have provided (one link for short beds and the other for long beds). Sliding ladder rack # TA21010-03 for a long bed or # TA21510-03 should also work because they mount to the tops of the bed sides.

  • Can Both Springs In Air Helper Springs System Be Inflated From One Valve

Near the back of the instructions, they have either separate air spring inflation or equal air spring inflation options listed, and both are acceptable. I would opt for the separate inflation option because you could at some point have a load that is uneven and one side would need more support than the other. But using a single inflation valve would make it...

  • Can a 2009 Ford F-350 4X4 Dually Pull a Three Car Hauler
  • Your F350 Dually should be able to pull a 3 car hauler with no problem, but as a first step, you'd want to find the max towing capcity of the truck. You can do this by finding the GCWR (gross combined weight rating) on the sticker located on the driver's side door jamb. This figure represents the maximum combined weight of the vehicle and trailer. If you subtract the fully loaded weight of the vehicle from the GCWR, the difference is the maximum trailer weight you can tow. You can use a...

  • While I don't know exactly how far the Curt Hitch part # C15810 would hang below the bumper of your 2002 Ford Superduty I can tell you how you can figure it out. I went out into our warehouse and measured the distance from the mounting surface of the hitch down to the hitch opening and found that it measures 5-1/2 inches. So basically if you measure 5-1/2 inches down below the rear frame of your truck that is where your hitch opening will be.

To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle.

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector With 4-Pole for 2000 Ford F250
  • If your truck has the OEM 7-way, it should have a round connector that plugs directly into the back of it. You can unplug the connector at that point, and then plug it into the 7-way of your choice, like the # 20119 you referred to, or the # HM40975 which is being used as the OEM trailer connector on the new Ford trucks. The square connector you speak of is usually a little further down the line, on the frame rail.

  • Fifth Wheel Bracket Kit Recommendation for a 2010 Ford F-250 with a 6-3/4 foot bed
  • There is a Quick-Install Custom Bracket kit (part # RP50082) confirmed to fir your 2010 Ford F-250 with a 6-3/4 foot bed, but the part # RP56001 is for GM trucks and would not work for you. You would need the part # RP50082 that I mentioned. I attached an install video. Since you have a short bed you will need a hitch with a slider to make 90 degree turns like the Pro Series Hitch and Slider part # PS30857.

  • Compatibility of BandW Hitch and Sumo Springs Kit in 2013 Ford F-250
  • The SumoSprings Custom Helper Springs Kit # SSR-102-47 that you referenced fits both 2WD and 4WD versions of the 2013 Ford F-250. This kit installs from below the frame rails. The BandW hitch # BWGNRK1111-5W that fits your F-250 mounts to the sides of the frame rails and so should not interfere with installation of the SumoSprings kit. If you compare the diagrams in the install instructions for both items (both are linked for you) you will see that their mounting points are not the same.

  • Hardware for Securing E-track to Wood Trailer Floor
  • The # TF01150 screw is meant to fasten a wood floor to a trailer, it wouldn't be my choice for attaching E-Track to a wood floor. I'd use 1/4 inch diameter lag bolts whose length is a bit less than the thickness of the floor. How many bolts you need would depend on what you're using the E-track for. I'd probably want a bolt fastening the track about every 12 inches or so, maybe closer together for a heavier load. Use a self tapper like # FA1131822 to attach to the steel floor supports.

I spoke to my contact at Draw Tite/Pro Series and he informed me that the head of your hitch, part # 58165 would work on the Pro Series Fifth Wheel Slider # RP30092. The height of the hitch will stay the same with the only difference being that you won't be able to use the lowest position of the hitch.

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Ford F-250 for a Snow Plow
  • The only front mount hitch option for your 2004 Ford F-250 is # 65022. But this receiver will exit in between the tow hooks. I cannot recommend using a custom hitch such as # C31014 for fabrication but you could use fabrication parts to have a custom fabricator make a hitch that will fit. I have linked the hitch fabrication parts we carry. You would just need a crossmember. This is likely going to be less expensive then trying to adapt a hitch to fit.

Part # 20119 is shown as being the proper 7-way for a 2002 Ford F250 or F350. The 20119 would plug into the existing US Car connector under the vehicle, typically located on the driver's side frame rail.

You actually purchased the correct front mounted hitch, part # C31014, if your truck has the front bumper bar. They told me that due to the bar, the hitch will be mounted in a different manner and the receiver will be below the bumper, not through the middle of the bumper like part # 31114.

Much in the same way that the rear seat on a bus or roller coaster gets the roughest ride, anything attached to the rear of a trailer will be subjected to forces that could damage it. While we do offer bicycle racks that could work on the back of your 5th wheel, we have no RV-rated scooter carriers...

Both styles are compatible with your tire size, but I cannot recommend anything that would contradict any prohibitions about tire chain usage mentioned in your owner's manual.

However, there is that center bolt that holds the air bag top bracket on. The hole for that bolt is also used for the B&W bracket. So the two parts will share that same hole and it will work out fine. I have linked instructions for the B&W hitch and a video showing installation.
