  • Thule Motion XT & Force Rooftop Cargo Box Fits on 2012 Ford Escape
  • We don't carry the Malone product line but I was able to find plenty of images of their elliptical aluminum crossbars. These are quite similar to other brands' elliptical/aerodynamic style crossbars. The # TH625 Thule Force XL's mounting hardware fits on bars up to 3-1/2-inches wide x 1-11/16-inches tall so just measure the bar dimensions to confirm compatibility. I often recommend to users of rooftop cargo carriers a simple accessory step from Camco, part # CAM43672, which is inexpensive,...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Prowler Lynx Trailer with 360 Pounds of Tongue Weight
  • If the 360 pounds of tongue weight is with the trailer loaded and ready to tow then I suggest the Reese Steadi-Flex # RP66558.

You'll need a hitch ball with a 1 inch shank. Use # 63845 for a 2 inch ball or # 63847 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. If your trailer will be heavier when you're towing it and you need a...

  • How Does Supplemental Braking and Lighting Work on a Flat Towed Vehicle with Ground Disconnected

The taillights of the vehicle will be powered and grounded by the tow vehicle actually. Since the power and signal comes from the vehicle that's doing the...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2015 Ford F-150 with 5 1/2 ft. Box
  • I did some research on the 2016 Cougar X-Lite 29RLI and it has a tapered nose to allow turning clearance with short bed trucks, but the nose isn't going to be adequate for a 5-1/2 foot bed truck. That would be too short to allow the clearance needed to not hit the cab of your truck while turning. For the amount of clearance needed the hitch you need is 13K Demco HiJacker, # DM8550040 which can slide up to 21-1/2 inches. For a rail kit you would want the part # RP50087-58 which is...

  • Why Does Trailer Wiring for 2016 Ford Escape Run Through Back Hatch

  • Can I Charge the Battery for a Winch On My Trailer From My 2016 Ford F-150 While Driving
  • I do have a few different options for you, but charging your trailer battery from the battery on your 2016 Ford F-150 while driving is not what I recommend doing. The 7-Way on your F-150 does not have the capability to charge a large enough battery to run your winch. The only kind of battery that it can charge is something like a small breakaway battery. You would have to find wiring that is big enough to carry that much power and run it straight to the battery on your trailer. The first...

  • Does Trailer Wiring for 1992 Ford Ranger have Turn Signal Converter Built In
  • The trailer wiring harnesses we offer for your 1992 Ford Ranger like the Tekonsha kit part # 118314 do not have converter boxes integrated into them. That means your vehicle has the stop and turn signals combined on the same circuit. If your brake lights on the trailer aren't working then that is most likely a ground problem. If you clean up the ground connections of the lights or the main ground of the trailer (from the 4-way to the trailer frame), the brake lights will start working again.

  • Where to Store Front Bike Wheels when Using Roof Bike Racks on a 2016 Ford Focus
