Expert Answers about Ford


  • How to Install the Best Brake Controller in a 2007 Ford Expedition with 7-Way
  • Sounds like you have both a factory 4-way and 7-way at the rear of your 2007 Ford Expedition. Because of that all you would need to install the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195 that you referenced is the correct wiring harness, part # 3035-P. Simply plug one end of the adapter into your brake controller and then plug the other end into the built-in harness beneath your vehicle's dash. I attached an install video to the right that details how this will install.

  • Blue Ox Tiger Trak Rear Axle Stabilizer for a 2015 Ford F-53 Chassis
  • Yes, I checked with Blue Ox and the Tiger Track part # TT2405 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford F53 26k chassis and won't require any drilling to install. I attached a link to the installation instructions to the right that detail how it will install.

  • Will the Length of Curt Bolt-Together Adjustable Weight Distribution Shank # C17122 Reduce Capacity
  • The longer Curt Weight Distribution Shank part # C17122 that you referenced will not reduce the capacity of your hitch. Hitch extenders reduce capacity by the increased leverage and the increased movement they create. Also, tongue weight affects weight distribution systems differently than a weight carrying setup, that is why this product has such a large gusset from the top piece and the lower piece and why it still has high capacities while being longer than most.

  • Trailer Hitch Lock for a Class I or II 1-1/4 Inch Receiver
  • Thanks for including a few pictures! The trailer hitch receiver lock # 5200 you referenced works with Class I-II 1-1/4 inch hitches. It is also the most popular. If your receiver hitch on your 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac is indeed 1-1/4 inches this lock will work great. I have included a video review for you as well. If you have any additional questions let us know!

  • Will a Sidewinder Fit B&W Companion Hitch for a 2014 Ford F-350 with Factory Prep Package
  • B&W Companion hitch # BWRVK3300 does fit the factory prep package on your 2014 Ford F-350. And it can be used with a Sidewinder since this version of the hitch fits in the 4 pucks in the truck bed. Models of the Companion that just fit in the Gooseneck ball hole are not compatible with Sidewinders. But to determine if there is as Sidewinder that fits the trailer I need to know the manufacturer of the pin box and the model number. This information should be on a sticker or plate on the...

  • Snow Ski Carrier Recommendation For 2011 Ford Escape With Factory Crossbars
  • We do offer a rack system that will work for your 2011 Ford Escape with the factory crossbars. Depending on the number of skis you want to carry we have a couple of carriers. If you are planning on 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards, the carrier I recommend is part # 564U. This carrier includes mounting hardware, padding to protect your gear and locks that help deter thieves. The universal mounting brackets allow you to mount the carrier to a wide range of crossbars that measure up to...

  • Recommendations For Towing A 2005 Ford Focus
  • Per the owner's manual for your 2005 Ford Focus, it states that if you have an automatic transmission, the vehicle cannot be towed with the front wheels on the ground. For towing, you will need to use a tow dolly. The tow dolly I recommend is the RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes, part # RM-2000-1. This dolly will allow you to be able to tow your Focus and keep the front wheels off the ground, and not have to use a transmission lube pump or disconnect the driveshaft. This tow...

  • Torque Spec for Trailer Suspension Shackle Bolts
  • We recommend that shackle bolts be tightened fully, then backed off slightly to allow free movement. You can certainly use a medium-grip thread sealer like Loctite Blue, if you wish, but the above still applies. The shackle/equalizer bolts can be re-used if absolutely necessary but you'll want to be careful to check them for signs of wear and to confirm the threads are okay. All things considered, if you are going through the effort to dismantle your suspension (to replace your springs,...

  • 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring for a 2014 Ford Escape
  • Yes, we do carry 2 inch trailer hitches for the 2014 Ford Escape. The most popular option is # 87627. I have included links to the right to a video installation and the instructions for you. If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Install Kits for a 2014 Ford F-250
  • I checked with Reese and you can install the 4-Bolt universal installation kit # RP30095 on your 2014 Ford F-250. We do not have a video showing installation of this kit but I have linked the instructions to the right. If you use this kit the rails are only held on by 2 bolts per rail and a center bolt just for stability. That is why Reese, and us here at etrailer, shy away from the 4-bolt kit. The 10-bolt kit, # RP30035, is much more secure. Each rail has 5 bolts on the 10 bolt kit. If...

  • Will Reese Weight Distribution System Clear Rear Bumper Of 1999 Ford E-350 Van
  • I went to the warehouse and measured the distance between the holes on the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System, part # RP66088. I have attached a photo of the shank with the head attached that has the dimensions noted. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball mount at 14 inches will clear your bumper by 6 inches. This weight distribution system is designed for tongue weight between 600 and 1,200 lbs and has a gross towing weight capacity of 12,000...

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler For 2012 Ford F-350
  • When choosing a transmission cooler, the most important thing you want to know is where it will fit so that it will provide the maximum cooling possible. I have attached a drawing that shows the locations typically used for a transmission cooler and where the best location is if possible. As the drawing shows, if you can mount the cooler between your vehicle's grille and the AC condenser core you will gain the greatest efficiency. If your 2012 Ford F-350 is not a diesel, I recommend...

  • Will Installation of Curt Class IV Hitch # 14001 on 1996 Ford Bronco Require Drilling
  • Yes, the Curt Class IV hitch # 14001 that you referenced will require drilling for installation on your full size 1996 Ford Bronco. It will fit your truck as long as it does not have a roll pan bumper. In addition the installation may require you to reposition the bumper slightly upward and also possibly reposition the spare tire. At right I have linked for you the written installation instructions as well as a video.

These base plates are specifically designed for use with your 2013 Ford Focus SE but are not compatible with the ST model or any vehicle equipped with the adaptive cruise control feature. In addition to the base plates, you may also still need safety cables, a lighting solution and in most states, a supplemental braking...

  • Best Fifth Wheel Hitch and Rails for a 2006 Ford F350 with a 6 3/4 bed?
  • Since you have a short bed 2006 Ford F 350 you will need a slider hitch so that you can make tight turns. The one I like the most and would recommend for you is the Reese R20 with Slider part # RP30870. This hitch has a round tube slider which by design operates smoother than a square tube slider, has a cushioned head to provide a smooth ride, and uses a 2 piece jaw that provides 360 degrees of contact with the king pin to eliminate chucking. This hitch also has a 20k capacity. Check...

  • 4-Way Recommendation for a 1997 Dutchmen Popup with a 6-Way Square
  • The pinout of the # 30104 that you referenced will only work on Jayco trailers. Although the connector is the same the wires are run to different pins on the 6-way side of the connector. Your best option would be to cut off the 6-way on your trailer and then wire up a 4-way to the trailer wires. For that I would recommend the # HM48110. You will need to wire the 4-way up by function to your trailer and not wire color as they most likely are different. The yellow wire of the 4-way...

  • Will the Thule Apex 4 Bike Rack Fit A Class I Hitch for a 2011 Ford Fiesta

The Thule Apex 4 bike rack part # TH9025 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit Class I hitches so it would fit, but you should note that you can only load 2 bikes on the rack when it is being used on a Class I hitch. Any more than that and you will potentially damage the hitch/vehicle. For more info on hitch classifications check out the link I attached to the right. We haven't tested...

  • Hitch Availability for a 2001 Ford Harley Davidson F150 with a Roll Pan Bumper
  • All of the hitches we offer for the 2001 Ford F150s like the part # 87183 will have the hitch opening come out right under the stock rear bumper. The only way one of our hitch would do what you are looking to do is if the roll pan you are looking at extends lower than the factory bumper. Most likely you would need to have a custom roll pan built around a hitch like the # 87183, or have a custom hitch built around the roll pan you are looking at. The second option would probably make...

  • Breakaway Kit Recommendation for the HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Brake Actuators
  • You can use a Tekonsha breakaway kit with the HydraStar brake actuators, but it must have a 12 volt 5 amp-hour battery. For the HydraStar brake actuators, we recommend part # 50-85-313. The HydraStar actuators do not come with a breakaway kit and they do not have an integrated battery charger. The Tekonsha breakaway kit that I referenced comes with a Premium Integrated Charger, so you will not need to worry about picking up a separate charger. If you already have a breakaway kit with...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Ford F-250 Short Bed
  • The biggest differences between Husky 16K hitch # HT31326-31196 and Curt hitch # C16521 are the slider base, jaws, and head. The Husky slider base has a lot of moving parts. It is unlike anything else I have seen. I have used it and find it to be a bit complicated which is not a benefit if you find yourself stranded on the side of the road. The Husky slider base also can only travel 10 inches compared to the simpler Curt design with 12 inches of travel. More travel means more clearance...

This is for oil seals that have metal on the outsides like # 91030. No sealant can get on the rubber parts. Just a little bit all the way around should be all you need.

  • Added Running Lights to Trailer But they Will Not Light Up
  • There could be a couple of issues here. The more lights you add, the more power they draw. If the combined amperage draw of the lights exceeds the amperage rating of the vehicle side wiring system then either some lights will not light up or you could blow a fuse on the vehicle side. The solution is to switch everything over to LED lights which draw only a fraction of the power of incandescent lights. The other possible issue is a bad ground. You mentioned the lights you want to add...

  • Ball Mount Rattles Around A Lot in Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Ford Explorer
  • There isn't a specific ball mount that you have to use with Curt hitch # C13100 for your 2014 Ford Explorer. You will just need one that is designed for a 2 inch hitch receiver and that allows you to tow the trailer level. The issue that you are experiencing is common. It is because the shank of the ball mount has to be smaller than the 2 inch receiver opening. Otherwise it would be difficult to install and remove the ball mount. To eliminate as much of the movement as possible you...

  • Weight Distribution for a 2003 Ford Explorer and 3,800 Pound Trailer

In extreme cases, a system that is too heavy can damage the trailer frame. The only way to adjust the heavier system would be to replace the spring bars with lighter ones. On some of the Equal-I-zer stuff it used to be that you couldn't do that but I am not sure how it is now. To choose a weight distribution system you...

For a long bed truck, use the stationary model, available in an 18K capacity, part # RP30142 or a 25K, part # RP30143. Or, if you use the # RP30156 adapter, you can use any Reese hitch. The # RP30156 would also allow you to use any hitch that is compatible with industry standard fifth wheel rails. I believe...

Since your chassis is rated for 24K you can use Firestone air bags, # F2474, for the rear and # F2476 for the front. The benefit of air bags over fixed rubber springs is that you can adjust the air bags by adding or removing air for the best ride quality for you. With these air bags installed you can use a compressor at home if you have one or a compressor...

This system has narrow frame mount brackets that can be mounted from 18 inches to 27 inches back from the ball coupler, see instructions linked to the right. If the frame is clear 18 inches to 27 inches back on your trailer frame, this would be the best option since it also includes sway control built in. If this will not work...

  • What Tool Should be Used to Trim a Multi-Fit Motor Home Trailer Hitch # 82200
  • You might not have to trim. Only some applications would require hitch, # 82200, to be trimmed. But if you must trim the cross tube then then you will need as straight and clean a cut as possible. A rotary tool with a metal cutting wheel attachment could work well. A regular hack saw with blade for cutting metal could also work. Make sure that after the hitch is trimmed to length to coat any bare metal with paint to prevent corrosion.

  • Steering Stabilizer for a 1998 Ford E-450 Class C Motor Home

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2011 Ford F-250
  • When I hear the term standard bed, I think of a long bed (8 foot bed). If you do have a long bed on your 2011 Ford F-250 then you would not need a slider hitch. It would be an extra expense that isn't necessary for a long bed truck. But for a short bed, 6-3/4 foot for the 2011 Ford F-250, a slider would be the way to go. If you do anticipate a heavier trailer in the future then going with a hitch that has a higher capacity than what would be needed for your current trailer would...

  • How to Tow a 1965 Ford Mustang Behind Another Vehicle
  • Neither Roadmaster nor Blue Ox have custom base plates for the 1965 Ford Mustang. You have 3 options though. First, you could have some universal base plates custom installed by a qualified fabricator, # BX88266. Second, you could determine if the vehicle can be towed on a tow dolly (this info may or may not be in the owners manual). And third, you could put the Classic Pony car on a trailer. If you go with option 1 then you will also need a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental...

  • Will a Trac-Rac G2 Ladder Rack Fit with a BAK FiberMax Tonneau Cover on a Toyota Tundra
  • The Bak FiberMax tonneau cover, such as # BAK126308, installs between the bed sides so no part of the cover, except for a tiny bit of the rubber on each side, would be on the tops of the bed sides. The tops of the bed sides is where the rails for the ladder rack, # TA21611-02, install. There is a small degree of adjustability as well so the rails should not cover the tonneau cover at all. The ladder rack uses the stack pockets, front and rear on each side, to mount. But the tonneau...

  • Adding Trailer Wiring Harness to a 1999 Ford F-350
  • If your 1999 Ford F-350 came with a factory 4-Way trailer connector, you can add a 7-Way using # 118243. I have linked a video showing installation for you. To add a 7- to 4-Way adapter the most popular option is # PK12716. If the truck did not come with any type of trailer connector then to add a 4-Way you would need to use # 18252. Then to add a 7-Way you would need # ETBC7.

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Ford F-250 and 13,500 Pound Toy Hauler Trailer
  • A 15K 5th wheel trailer hitch such as # PS30094 would have enough capacity for a trailer weighing 13,500 pounds, no problem. But I would recommend going up to a 16K hitch primarily because you will get a better hitch, more capacity, and a more secure jaw system. The Pro Series 15K slider uses a slide bar jaw. This jaw style allows for the most movement of the king pin in the hitch which means a lot of back and forth movement of the trailer in the hitch, called chucking. Going with...

  • The height of the sides of the bed on your 2015 Ford F-350 is a critical measurement you will want to know. since you said the height of the bed when the tail gate is down is 41.5 inches, and the height of your fifth wheel trailer king pin is 54.5 inches, that will only give you 13 inches from the bed to the king pin. The weight of the fifth wheel trailer when it is hooked up will cause the back of the truck to drop a bit and the amount will depend on the weight. I spoke with my...

Under the hood, the #10 fuse is for trailer tow backup lamps and parking lamps. Fuse #36 is trailer tow right turn/brake lights. And #42 is trailer tow left turn/brake lights. Location #106 is for the 12 volt circuit to the trailer connector. For relays #R05 is the 12 volt circuit relay. Location...

  • Parts Needed to Install a Prodigy RF and 7-Way Connector to a 2013 Ford Escape

You will also need about 20 feet of 10 gauge wire # 10-1-1, and 40 AMP circuit breaker # PK54540. The Prodigy RF will need 12-volt circuit on a 7-way to work which is why you need the 10-gauge wire and circuit breaker.

The offset places additional stress on the coupling between the adapter and the king pin, which is why the bolts would be required. The non-offset model, like part # CAB-C5G doesn't require the bolts, although using them can't hurt.
