Expert Answers about Ford


  • Can Tekonsha Repair a Broken Prodigy Brake Controller
  • I spoke with my Tekonsha representative, who told me that they do not repair or offer a replacement manual brake lever for your Prodigy. I'd recommend you replace the brake controller. The original Prodigy has been discontinued by the Prodigy P2, part # 90885. The P2 operates similarly to the original Prodigy, but it features a blue LED display, is compatible with electric over hydraulic braking systems and contains a relay that operates the trailer brake lamps when the manual brake...

  • Wiring 2015 Ford Fusion For Dolly Towing Behind RV

If you click on the provided links, you can see an install video showing the kit being installed on a different Ford vehicle. The procedure for your Fusion would be similar. The product description page for the # RM-154 has install diagrams at the bottom of the page.

  • Troubleshooting Titan Tire Chains That Seem to be Too Small
  • Thank you for submitting a picture, that makes it much easier to be able to tell exactly what is going on with your chains. At first glance it does look like the part # TC2526 is too small for your tire. It really looks like you need to pull the yellow of the chain closer to the center of your wheel so that the tensioner chain doesn't have to bridge as far of a gap to connect the yellow chain at the bottom of the tire. Try grabbing the chain and positioning it so that the yellow portion...

  • Can Reese Dual Cam System Part # 26002 Replace Previous Generation Sway Control
  • The dual cam sway control systems have changed a few times over the years. Since your current setup is 10 years old it is most likely 2 generations behind current. The part # RP26002 that you referenced would be the correct kit to use and would work well with your current spring bars as long as they have the curved ends (which they should since all dual cam systems require this).

  • Would the Westin PRO TRAXX Oval Nerf Bars Interfere with Side Pipes
  • I spoke to my contact at Westin and he informed me that the PRO TRAXX Oval Nerf Bars # 21-23515 that you referenced are only cab length, meaning that they stop at the back of the truck's cab, so they shouldn't interfere with your side mounted exhaust as systems like that usually exit right in front of the rear wheels. He wasn't able to give me an exact length though.

  • Torklift Hitch and Extension Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-350
  • To use the TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension # TLE1560 with your 2015 Ford F-350 you would need to remove your factory hitch and install the Torklift Hitch part # TLF1002-30. The capacity of the setup will then be: Maximum gross trailer weight: 5,000 lb Maximum GTW when used with weight distribution: 10,000 lbs Maximum tongue weight: 500 lbs Maximum TW when used with weight distribution: 1,000 lbs

  • Weight Distribution Recommendations for 2012 Ford Expedition EL 4x4
  • As a general rule of thumb, any time the loaded weight of the trailer is 50 percent or more of the loaded vehicle, weight distribution is recommended. Since the trailer, at 4100 lbs is more than half the approximate 5800 lb weight of the Expedition, I'd highly recommend a w/d system. The first thing you'll want to do is check the sticker on the hitch for the capacity when using weight distribution. It's likely higher than the 600 lb non-WDH capacity you mentioned, but you'll want...

  • Will Front Mount Hitch Fit 2011 Ford F-350 That Has Snow Plow Package And Oil Coolers Installed
  • I did some research on your 2011 Ford F-350. I was unable to find the snow plow package and what is included with it on your truck. I recommend the Draw-Tite Front Hitch, part # 65049 for your truck. I have attached the installation instructions you can check out. You will want to check the mounting locations on the trailer hitch to see if it will interfere with the snow plow package you have installed.

  • Replacement Pin Box Recommendation For Fabex 316 On 2003 Newmar Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • We have a king pin that is designed to be a replacement for the Fabex 316 you currently have on your 2003 Newmar Mountain Aire fifth wheel trailer, but Trailair does not offer a Tri-Glide pin box that would work. I recommend the Ultra-Fab Trailair Air Ride 5th Wheel King Pin, part # UF35-946223. This pin box has a weight capacity of 21,000 lbs and is a direct replacement for your 316. The scissor action of the coupler on the Air Ride absorbs the road shock and limits the strain on your...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2013 Winnebago Ford F-53 Chassis Motor Home
  • What you will need to do is install a weld-on heavy duty truck trailer hitch like in the link I have provided. All of these hitches are going to be Class IV or V hitches like you are looking for. Welding should be performed by a qualified professional welder with experience in this sort of installation. A custom fit hitch is not available for the 2013 Ford F-450 chassis models.

Standard rails' top surface is 1-3/8-inches above the truck bed. A hitch will sit on top of this adapter, not in between its 4 sides.

  • Prodigy P2 Brake Controller Blue Dot Lit Up on Screen
  • The blue dot on your Prodigy P2 # 90885 is normal. When the your 1997 Ford F-150 is turned off and trailer isn't connected, it will stay in power saving mode for 15 minutes before the blue dot disappears. Regarding the clicking sound, I would disconnect your brake controller and depress the brake pedal. If the clicking stops it's the brake controller. If it continues it's most likely something on your 1997 Ford F-150. I included a couple helpful articles and installation video for you too.

This hitch will fit the E-150, E-250, and E-350 models. The Detail K2 Storm Snowplow # K2STSP8422 that you referenced will then be able to be used on your Van as well as any other vehicle with a front hitch.

  • Will Air Suspension Work For 2012 Ford F-250 With Lift Kit When Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • To safely tow your trailer I recommend you do not install the lift kit on your 2012 Ford F-250. Trucks with a lift kit tend to pose a very tough challenge for towing. We do not offer any sort of adapter/kit to raise the height of the 5th wheel hitch in your truck bed. An air suspension kit would not be the answer to leveling your fifth wheel with a lifted truck. Options would be to raise the hitch head to its highest position and if it still does not allow your trailer to clear the...

  • Recommended Programmers for 2004 Ford F-150 With 4.6L Engine
  • The Bully Dog offerings for your truck including the # BY40400 aren't programmers- they will only allow you to observe various vehicle performance parameters, but aren't capable of altering he tune of the vehicle for increased performance. The Edge Evolution programmer, part # EP15051 would be my recommendation because it provides the largest potential horsepower and torque increases. You'll realize as much a 35 more HP and 50 foot lbs of torque. In addition to the 'stock' mode, there...

Add 5-1/4 inches for the offset of the Anderson Ultimate Connection, # AM3225, to get 32-1/4 inches. Now, if the center of the king pin on the trailer sticks out past the front of the trailer, add the distance from the center of the king pin to the front of the trailer overhang to 32-1/4.

  • Will Americana Wheels Work With Michelin Light Truck Radial Tires On 2014 Airstream Trailer

The difference between these two measurements is the offset. Because some trailer wheel offsets can be as small as 5 mm, they can be difficult to measure. If you can't measure the wheel, you can contact your trailer manufacturer with your trailer's serial number. The Aluminum...

  • Will Any 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Fit Above the Bed Rails in a 2002 Ford F-150
  • You have a lot of options for a 5th wheel hitch but not all hitches will fit the rails in your Ford F-150. You need a hitch that fits in above the bed industry standard rails. So for example you would not be able to use a Reese Elite Series hitch such as # RP30871, but you would be able to use one such as # PS30119. The rails in your truck bed should look like the ones in the picture I have provided. The 5th wheel hitch you choose also will depend on the bed length. For a long bed...

It sounds like the original problem you had was just a bad ground on the passenger stop/tail light. Typically light assemblies ground through their mounting hardware so ensuring this light is attached to a clean metal surface would be a great place to start and would most likely fix the problem.

  • First, the main appeal of the underbed installation kits for 5th wheel hitches is the fact that you won't have rails sticking up in the bed so it is essentially completely open when the hitch isn't in place. The rails do not stick up that much so for the most part people are fine with above the bed rails. It all just depends how often you place on carrying something in the bed. There are some pretty big differences between Reese hitch # RP30870 and # RP30083. First, the head on the Titan...

  • Difference Between Putco Plasma and Putco Pure Premium 3156 Back Up Lights
  • I spoke to my contact at Putco and she said the main differences between the Putco Plasma Bulb part # P243156W-360 that you referenced is that this light has a limited lifetime warranty as well as a 200 lumens rating. The Pure Premium light part # P233156W360 that you also referenced only has a 90 day warranty and an 85 lumens rating. For the price the Plasma is a much better deal.

  • 4-Way Recommendation for Powering Camper Shell Taillights on 2015 Ford F250
  • What you need is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C55384. This will plug inline with the 7-way you have at the rear of your 2015 Ford F250 and will give you an additional 4-way that you can then use for your camper.

  • Best 3 Bike Trunk Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Ford Focus ST
  • I checked with Thule and the nicest trunk mounted bike rack that has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford Focus ST is the Thule Raceway 3 Bike Rack part # TH9002PRO. What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer. The cables store inside the rack so there are no loose straps...

  • Best Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Trailer with 975 lb Tongue Weight
  • 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. You want to pick a system where the loaded tongue weight falls right into the middle of the tongue weight range of the system. Since your tongue weight is 975 lbs I would...

  • Can a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier with Ramp Fit on a 2005 Ford Taurus
  • The MaxxTow cargo carrier with ramp, # MT70260, requires a trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. All of the trailer hitches for your 2005 Ford Taurus have 1-1/4 inch openings so it will not fit. We have one trailer hitch mounted carrier that has a ramp built into it that will fit a 1-1/4 inch Class II trailer hitch. It is the Oldenkamp scooter/wheelchair carrier, # RHWC1114. The hitch would have to have a 300 pound tongue weight capacity such as # 36313. The carrier weighs...

  • Recommended Compressor-Compatbile Air Helper Springs for 2013 Ford F350 Dually
  • If your F350 Dually is a Diesel model, I'd recommend the Firestone Ride-Rite # F2535. If your truck has gasoline engine (but not a SuperCab V10 model with the 8 foot bed), use the # F2550. Both system are compatible with a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch, so if you have one now or plan on installing one in the future, either kit would be compatible. If your compressor kit was manufactured by Firestone or AirLift, either kit mentioned above would work. The Work-Rite kit you mentioned,...

  • Minimum Required Clearance Dimensions for 5th Wheel Trailer and Short Box Ford F-250
  • The diagram I have linked for you shows the recommended minimum clearance distances for trucks towing 5th wheel trailers. The diagram includes vertical clearance at the bed rails as well as lateral clearance at the tailgate and bumper. When adjusting your hitch and pin box heights you want to find the sweet spot where you get the maximum clearance between truck bed rails and trailer overhang that still keeps your trailer dead level or close to it. It may be necessary to also adjust the...

  • Sidewinder Pinbox Troubleshooting
  • There should be no play in the arm so you want to take care of the problem. There could be a couple reasons your Sidewinder has some play in it. First you would want to check the turret bolts on the top of the turret. If you have a 3 bolt setup they should all be tightened to 80 ft lbs of torque. 4 bolt systems would need to be torqued to 45 ft lbs. I have attached a drawing that shows where these bolts are located. The drawing is of a Sidewinder with 4 bolts. The location is the same on...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 2013 Ford Edge

The link at right will show you all hitch options for the non-Sport version and these include both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III types. The linked article will give you details about hitch types. I recommend a 2-inch Class III hitch, Curt # C13067, since this unit costs less than other options and since it offers...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2002 Ford Excursion Towing 2015 Open Range Trailer
  • The first step would be to determine the tongue weight and towing capacity of your hitch as well as the 2002 Ford Excursion itself. Just a reminder, you always want to follow the weight limitations of the component with the lowest rating. When choosing a weight distribution system you will need to go by the tongue weight of the trailer when fully loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of your Excursion. If the tongue weight of your new 2015...

  • Installing Above-Bed Rail Mounted 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2015 F350 W/ Ford Tow Prep Package
  • You'll just need a simple adapter, part # RP30156. The adapter will attach into the pucks in the truck bed, and the hitch will mount to the adapter just like it would to bed mounted rails. The adapter is compatible with the Reese Elite underbed rail system or the OEM 5th wheel prep package offered by Ford.

I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Double Eye Springs for 3500 lb Axle on Utility Trailer
  • Trailer leaf springs tend to flatten out over time as they wear out. The best way to get an accurate eye-to-eye measurement is to put the trailer up on jack stands so there's no weight on the suspension. Given the dimension you provided, the # PR4B spring would be the correct replacement.

  • Helper Springs for a 2000 Ford F-250 Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • For your 2000 Ford F-250 towing a 5th wheel trailer I recommend the Timbren helper springs but the ones you will need are # TFR150SDE because the other ones you mentioned are for Severe Service vehicles only. Since you need support from towing a 5th wheel trailer the Timbrens are a better option than air bags. This is because the load weight and position will basically be exactly the same every time which is what Timbrens are good for. Air bags are better if you carry uneven load frequently...

The Draw-Tite hitch, # 65049, only requires fascia trimming if the truck is a 4-wheel drive model. I have linked instructions for this hitch as well.

  • Can Towing Mirrors with Puddle Lamps be Installed on a 2005 Ford F-150 without Puddle Lamps

So in other words, yes, you can still use these mirrors! I have linked a video review for you.

  • Having Trouble Lining Up 2014 Ford F-350 and Gooseneck Trailer
  • For a gooseneck hitch and trailer I think the best solution would be to use the Swift Hitch camera # 04928. You can mount this camera pretty much anywhere and turn it on when needed (it doesn't tap into the vehicle wiring). The base is magnetic so you could attach the camera to the gooseneck coupler to line up the truck and trailer perfectly.

  • Differences Between Bargman # 34-84-711 and # 34-84-800 Replacement Taillight Lenses

The # 34-84-711 is meant for vertically mounted lamps and # 34-84-700 is meant for horizontally mounted lamps. The difference between the two is the way the inside of the lens is checkered for the correct level of reflection. One has maximum reflection when mounted horizontally, the other when mounted vertically. Other than that, there's no other difference between the two lenses. Because...

  • Determining Proper Height of Fifth Wheel Hitch in Truck Bed

Then, measure the height of the floor of the truck bed above the ground. The difference between these two measurements is the height at which you'd want your hitch. You'll want at least six inches of clearance between the top of the bed sides and the underside of the trailer loft. For a 6-3/4 inch bed, you have two options...

Instead you would want a set of tube steps that go from one wheel well to the other. For that you would want the # RA26090-14410.
