Expert Answers about Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty


  • Does the Curt Bracket Kit part # C16448 Come with Rails
  • The Curt Bracket Kit part # C16448 that you referenced does not come with any rails at all. For a set of rails to go along with this kit you would want the part # C16204. This rail kit is compatible with Reese hitches as well as Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Valley and Husky.

  • Can Husky 26,000 Fifth Wheel Hitch Work With 20k Reese Rails On 2012 Ford F-350
  • If you have standard rails installed for your 20K Reese fifth wheel hitch on your 2012 Ford F-350 with the 8 ft bed, you can attach the 26,000 lb hitch like the Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Hitch, part # HT31318-31325. You will want to check your owner's manual or with your dealership to make sure you do not exceed the towing weight capacity for your truck. I spoke with my contact at Reese and they told me that their bed rails are limited to 22,000 lbs. It would not be necessary to...

  • Fit of SuperSprings # SSR-102-47 Helper Springs on 2006 Ford F350 F350 DRW
  • I spoke with my SuperSprings representative, who confirms that the SumoSprings Custom Helper Spring Kit you referenced, part # SSR-102-47 will fit a 2006 Ford F350 DRW 4x4. Please keep in mind that this SumoSpring kit won't increase the capacity of your truck, and is meant to be used on suspensions that are in good repair. If you'd care to see the install instructions, feel free to click the provided link.

  • How To Extend the Wiring Harness of the Hopkins Insight Brake Controller
  • All it would take to extend the Hopkins Plug-in Simple Brake Controller harness # HM47715 so that it would be long enough for you to install the Hopkins Insight Brake Controller part # HM47297 would be 4 equal lengths of 10 gauge wire. If you have a Hopkins harness already with the correct gauge wire you could also use that, but splicing in additional wire would be the easiest method. I attached an install video that shows this brake controller installed on a very similar 2001 Ford...

  • How to Install an Aftermarket Brake Controller in a 2014 Chevy Silverado with Integrated Controller

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch and 5th Wheel Adapter Plate for a 2011 Ford F-350 Regular Cab Dually
  • Valley has basically closed up shop. This happened a couple of years ago. It will be very difficult to find the installation kit to fit any vehicle, including your 2011 Ford F-350. The Valley website doesn't even work anymore. But I can set you up with a similar set of products. For a gooseneck hitch you can use Curt gooseneck hitch # C612-645. Then you could use X-5 adapter, # C16210. This is the same type of set up just using Curt products instead of Valley.

  • Troubleshooting Landing Gear Legs that Sit Too Close to the Ground
  • I wonder if the landing gear legs on your 2015 Montana have retracting inner tubes that if you were to retract them would give you additional clearance. Does the trailer sit level when connected to your trailer? If so, then you would not want to raise the front of the trailer. If you do end up needing to raise your 1999 Ford F350 the best way to do it would be with a lift kit. We don't sell those but you shouldn't have a problem finding one for you vehicle.

  • Air Bags for a 2012 Ford F-250 with Factory Installed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The brackets for air bags and those for the hitch installation kit on your 2012 Ford F-250 are not meant to be stacked. So you will need an air bag kit that mounts in a location that does not interfere with the hitch brackets. That kit could be Firestone Ride-Rite kit # F2550. It mounts on the inboard sides and bottoms of the frame rails. I have included a link to a video showing how they install. Compare this to where the brackets are on your truck to make sure they will work together....

  • 20k Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2001 Ford F350
  • The biggest difference between the Reese R20 Hitch part # RP30867 and the Pro Series Hitch part # PS30119 is that the # RP30867 features vibration isolators and serrated jaws that would grip the king pin more securely than that of the PS30119, and would offer a smoother ride because less king pin slop would be transmitted to the tow vehicle.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 2004 Ford F-250 With Mud Tires
  • We do offer several different tire chains that will work on your 2004 Ford F-250 with the mud tires. I have attached a link to our product page that has all of the tire chains designed to fit your tires. One of the best tire chains we offer is the Pewag All Square Chains, part # PWE3235SC. These are heavy-duty 5.6 mm chains that feature side cams for easy tightening. For a lighter duty tire chain, you may want to check out the Titan Diamond LT Alloy Tire Chains, part # TC2337. These...

  • What Changes Can be Made to 2011 Ford F-350 6.7 Liter Using Stock Setting on Edge Programmer
  • Programmers like the Edge Evolution # EP85200 have levels for additional power, towing, transmission tuning, and stock. If you keep it at stock you can adjust a few things like shift points, rev limiters and speed limiters on some trucks. But the amount of things you can do while in stock setting are limited. If you can tell me what you are looking for I can recommend a programmer that will best fit your needs for your 2011 Ford F-350 with 6.7 liter diesel.

  • 7-Way Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F250 with Factory Brake Controller
  • If you have the factory brake controller in your 2012 Ford F250 your truck should have had a factory 7-way installed on it at one point. So to replace the 7-way that was on your vehicle you would want the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 20119 that you referenced.

  • Instructions for Removing Edge Evolution CTS Programmer from a 1999 Ford 7.3 Liter Diesel Truck
  • To remove the Edge Evolution CTS programmer # EP83830 from your 1999 Ford 7.3 liter diesel you will first use the programmer to return the truck to stock. Once it is returned to stock you can physically remove the programmer and its components from the truck. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right in case you need them. If you are wanting to move the programmer to a different truck then it will have to be re-registered with Edge and they will charge a fee.

  • Is Weight Distribution Recommended when Towing a 14,000 lb Trailer
  • Regardless of the capacity difference between using a WD system and not you would see a benefit to using a WD system for towing a trailer as heavy as yours. The lack of a capacity difference for the WD application does not indicate that you wouldn't benefit from the use of one. Any time the trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the tow vehicle a WD system is recommended. You would be within the capacity of your hitch to tow the trailer without a WD system, but you will have better handling...

  • Should a Sidewinder or Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Used on a 2014 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • You have a couple of options. Since your 2014 Ford F-250 is a short bed either a slider hitch or a Sidewinder would be needed to be able to safely make tight turns. Using a Sidewinder will provide a better ride than using a slider hitch. Since you already have a hitch this is the route I recommend. But to determine if there is a Sidewinder that will fit you will need to get the manufacturer and model number of the pin box on the trailer. This information should be on a sticker or plate...

  • Reese Strait-Line System that will Allow Use of Existing Snap-Up Brackets on 30 Ft Toy Hauler
  • The Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution with Sway Control, # RP66074, mounts approximately 30 inches back from the hitch ball, so you should not have any problem using the existing snap-up brackets that are welded to your trailer. Since you do plan to use the existing brackets, after installing the weight distribution system, you will want to make sure that the chains are as close to straight up and down as possible in order for everything to function properly. Purchasing the system,...

  • The Titan Chain Twist Link Tire Chains, part # TC3231CAM, are designed to work with your 275/70-18 tires on your 2011 Ford F-250. The Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains for Wide-Base Tires, part # TC3831, are also designed to fit your tires. Both of these chains are made of the same material, 7 mm steel. The difference is that the # TC3831 chains have a V welded on them for additional traction. You will want to check your owner's manual to see if there are any restrictions regarding...

  • Firestone Air Helper Spring Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F250 with Fifth Wheel Rails
  • If you have a Gas engine in your 2012 Ford F250 the Firestone Air System part # F2550 would be the correct system to get. If you have a Diesel engine you instead would want the part # F2535. Either of these would work with your fifth wheel rail kit part # RP50073-58 that you have installed.

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty with Air Bags
  • There are several different gooseneck hitches available for your 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty, but the mounting brackets of your air bags will determine whether a gooseneck hitch can be installed with the air bags. There are two different types of frame brackets for air bags on the Ford Super Duty trucks, one type mounts to the outside of the frame and the other mounts to the bottom and inside of the frame. If the frame brackets for your air bags are mounted to the outside of the...

  • The biggest difference between the TorkLift StableLoad Suspension, part # TLA7200, and the SuperSprings SuperSway-Stops, part # SSS-2, is the warranty. Torklift provides a lifetime warranty versus a 2-year warranty on the SuperSprings. Both are designed to replace the factory bump stops on your 2013 Ford F-250, and will help reduce side-to-side sway and body roll. Both are easy to install and require no drilling.

  • Replacement Air Ride Pin Box for 5th Wheel Trailer With Dexter 221-0033-00 Pin Box
  • The first thing you may want to try is to raise the height of the 5th wheel trailer hitch. Most 5th wheel hitches are height adjustable by bolting the head higher on the legs. If that does not work then you could use 5th Airborne pin box # RP61452. This is an air ride coupler and Sidewinder together (an air ride pin box by itself is not available). The Sidewinder's primary function is to move the pivot point of the trailer back 22 inches. But it can be locked out to continue to pivot...

  • Fifth Wheel Rail Kit Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-250
  • The recommended universal rail kit for your 2015 Ford F250 would be the part # RP30035, this is a 10 bolt kit. There are no 4-bolt kits available that are recommended for your vehicle. The 4-bolt rails are much bigger than the 10-bolt rails. On some vehicles the 4-bolt design will install easier than the 10 bolt design, at the cost of reduced truck bed space. However, I would recommend you install a custom fit rail kit like part # RP50073-58 this will give you the same universal style...

  • Does Computer have to be Flashed After Replacing Factory Brake Controller On 2008 Ford F-350
  • The factory integrated brake controllers, especially the first generations of them, performed poorly as you have described. They are just not designed well and thus not effective. On newer trucks they have gotten better but I would still say an aftermarket controller is superior. When you install an aftermarket controller in your 2008 Ford F-350 the factory controller will have to be disconnected. This will cause a fault code to appear. That fault code will have to be cleared by your...

  • Does External Antenna Have to be Used for Swift Hitch Back Up Camera System SH03
  • The camera with the short antenna for camera system # SH03 has a transmission distance of 200 feet if the path from the camera to the monitor is unobstructed. A 40 foot trailer should not be a problem. The second camera and the antenna would allow you to put the camera where it would otherwise have the signal obstructed but you do not have to use it. It does come with a shorter antenna as well that mounts directly to the back of the second camera.

It sounds like your 2008 Ford F-350 has an aftermarket underbed installation kit like # RP30073. But it is either not this exact installation kit, or something happened to it and it is no longer square, because the 4 pucks should be lined up. Since they are not adapter # RP30156 will not fit.

You will need to remove your factory hitch though. This product was specifically designed to work with the Titan Extender that came with your slide in camper like part # RP45292.

  • Can the EZ Bike Stand be Used to Secure a Bike in a Toy Hauler without the Bike Falling Over
  • There isn't really a way to safely and easily attach the EZ bike stand # EZBIKE so that it wouldn't move around while towing the trailer. Based on that I would not recommend it for use in a travel trailer/toy hauler. I recommend attaching a hanger to the wall of the toy hauler, # S80955. It will be stable and the bike will not fall off (barring any severe bump in the road). I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

  • Can a 2015 Ford Super Duty Truck with 6.2 liter Tow a 15k Trailer
  • From the research I did it looks like you wouldn't be able to. The towing capacity I found said 14k was the max. I would recommend you consult your owners manual to verify this though. You also have to consider whether or not that is the dry weight for the trailer. If it is, then most likely the trailer will weigh even more when loaded and ready to tow.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation For 2013 Ford F-350 With Factory Tow Package And Wiring
  • With the pucks in the bed of your 2013 Ford F-350, and with the 5th wheel wiring, you have the factory under bed rails installed. When you have a short bed on your truck, it is recommended to use a sliding 5th wheel hitch. This helps avoid contact with the cab of the truck when making turns. For your truck I recommend a 5th wheel system like the Pro Series Fifth Wheel, part # PS30121. This is a sliding 5th wheel that will move the hitch and the king pin 10 inches closer to the tail gate,...

  • 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter Recommendations for 2012 Ford F-250 with B&W Gooseneck Hitch
  • Thank you for your purchase and business with us. The B&W Companion Slider, # BWRVK3400, can be quite a handful for one person, so I understand why you want to make the switch. Since you have a standard size bed, you could just use the fixed Companion, # BWRVK3500. This hitch is still pretty heavy, but it is lighter than the slider version by about 75 lbs. Sliding hitches are typically only necessary on trucks with beds shorter than 8 feet. If you still want to go with a fifth-wheel-to-gooseneck...

  • 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch for a 2003 Ford F-350 Super Duty Crew Cab Long Bed 4x4

They are later turned into service vehicles or fitted with flatbeds. If you have a regular 2003 Ford F-350 Super Duty this hitch will not fit because the frame spacing is too wide.

Both kits would work for 5th wheel hitches because they mount on the inboard sides of the frame rails. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the Firestone kit for you.

  • Hooking Up a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch to a Reese Elite Series Hitch in a 2014 Ford F-250
  • You are correct. The Elite Series 5th wheel hitches like # RP30142 will have a little bit of the jaw sticking out. This is normal. You still back the truck up like normal, straight on. What will happen is the king pin will push against the jaw. That will push the jaw in (towards the driver's side) which will also disengage the handle from the open position. Once the king pin is fully in the hitch the jaw will close around it automatically and you can then insert the keeper pin to keep the...

You will want to fast forward to the 5:25 mark of the video to see the hitch being installed into the pucks of the rail system. The hitch in this video is part # RP30143 which is a stationary hitch. Since you have a short bed truck you would need the slider version of this hitch part # RP30144.

  • On a trailer, the turn signals are on the same circuits as the brake lights. On a 7-Way trailer connector they would be the pins in the 9 oclock and 3 oclock positions. If you are not getting turn signal functions on those two pins, but you are getting brake lights, then that does indicate a possible blown fuse. But since you said the fuse is fine there could be a relay somewhere. The easiest way to find the locations of fuses/relays is to use the truck owners manual. On many trucks...

  • Running Boards Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-350 Regular Cab
  • We have several running board options for your 2008 Ford F-350 regular cab, but the DeeZee Elite Running Boards, # DZE29934, will only fit the Ford F-150 Supercrew. For your truck, I recommend looking at the DeeZee FX Extruded Running Boards, # DZFX21950, which is also available in black as part # DZFX21350. I have attached a link to all of the running boards that we offer for your truck for you to check out.

  • Air Spring System Recommendation for a 2001 Ford F250 4-Wheel Drive
  • For a similar air spring suspension enhancement system as the part # AL88390 that you referenced that will work with fifth wheel hitches installed in your 2001 Ford F250 4WD you would want the Firestone Air System part # F2550. This system has been confirmed to fit with 5th wheel hitches. I attached an install video for this product for you to check out.

  • What is the Minimum Thickness of the Surface that Rubber Grommet A45GB Can Be Mounted To
  • Rubber grommet # A45GB is 1-1/16 inches deep but the material you are mounting the light in does not have to be that thick. A minimum 3/16 inch should be sufficient. Metal (aluminum or steel) would be the preferred surface. Fiberglass and other similar materials can flex much easier which could result in the light popping out of the hole. But this is not likely if the hole is cut to the proper size (4-1/2 inch diameter).

  • How to Remove Brake Caliper Pistons to Rebuild Kodiak Disc Trailer Brake Calipers
  • Using compressed air is still the way to go. I have come across many instances of people using this method to push out the piston. And the best part is, it works. If you do not have an air compressor I am sure a local shop would go ahead and do it for you since it takes only a few seconds. If your Kodiak disc brakes are 10k to 12k rated then you can use the rebuild kit # BP18-075. And if the pistons are bad, # BP18-065 is the correct replacement.

The # F2550 is compatible with an in-bed fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch.

  • Carrying Vespa Scooter on Front Hitch Installed on 2010 Ford F350
  • Assuming your front hitch has sufficient capacity to handle the weight of the scooter and the approximately 100 lb weight of the carrier, carrying a Vespa scooter on a carrier like the # RHDC1 is theoretically possible. The Curt # C31008 has a 500 lb capacity. So, the 325 lb weight of the scooter plus the 100 lb weight of the carrier would be within the capacity of the hitch. This being said, the carrier and the scooter can interrupt the airflow through the truck's radiator, which could...

I have more personal experience with the Reese Dual Cam systems like # RP66084, but judging by our customer comments and reviews, the Sway Pro is a nice system that's simpler to use. The shank that is included with the # BXW1000 has a maximum rise of 10-3/4 inches, and when flipped over and used in the drop position, you'll...

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with Curt Gooseneck Trailer Hitch in a 2003 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • If your Curt gooseneck trailer hitch is a Double-Lock, Flip and Store gooseneck hitch (C-60 and C-600 series) with the round hole for the ball then you can use the X5 adapter # C16210 and a slider hitch which you will need for a short bed truck. You can use any slider hitch that fits in industry standard rails with the adapter. For a 16K hitch I recommend the Reese round tube slider hitch # RP30075. For a 20K you can use Curt Q20 hitch # C16536. Both of these hitches offer 12 inches...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller On 2002 Ford F-250 Heavy Duty Truck

It sounds like your controller is working properly when the trailer is not hooked up but is acting opposite of how it is supposed to work when you hook the trailer to your vehicle. I would use a circuit tester like part # 3808, and make sure all the wiring connections are receiving current...

  • Hitch Availability for a 2001 Ford E450 Shuttle Bus

However, due to the large overhang of your vehicle because of the shuttle bus portion of the vehicle it is kind of hard for me to say for certain. The best recommendation I can make would be for you to check out the install video and instructions and compare them to the rear frame of your vehicle to see if they would be compatible.

One end of the connector would plug into the rear of the controller, the other would plug into the connector under the dash. For a 2005 model, the connector is located behind the storage cubby right above the ashtray. Pull the storage pocket out from the dash, and the connector will be clipped to the rear of the pocket, as shown in the photo I've provided for you.

  • Will SuperSprings SuperCoils Fix the Sag at the Front End of a 2001 Ford F-250 2-Wheel Drive Diesel
  • My question is why is the front end of your 2001 Ford F-250 sagging? It could be that there is something in the suspension that needs to be replaced. Suspension enhancement like # SSC-31 is designed to be installed on a vehicle that has suspension that is in good working order. When installed the SuperCoils will increase ride height by 1-5/8 inches so they should definitely take care of the sag. I have included a link to the installation instructions to the right for you.

You will want to make sure that the truck side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. It sounds like you are using harness # 3065-P on your 2005 Ford F-350 so I doubt that it is the harness or where it plugs into the vehicle but you may want to check that connection just to make sure there is do dirt or dust in there causing this issue.
