Expert Answers about Curt

  • Comparison of Gooseneck and 5th Wheel Hitch For 2003 GMC Sierra 2500 HD Diesel Truck
  • Yes, there are fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapters and we do carry them. Gooseneck hitches are typically used to haul construction or agricultural trailers and fifth-wheel hitches are mainly used to haul campers. Gooseneck hitches are usually rated to haul 25,000 to 30,000 pounds, some fifth-wheel hitches are capable of doing the same, but other fifth-wheel hitches are rated lower. When towing, your towing setup is only as strong as the weakest towing component, whether it is your hitch,...

  • Towing Capacity for a 2004 Chevy Suburban 1500 when Using a Weight Distribution System
  • I did some research on the 2004 Suburban models, and I was not able to find any specific weight distribution capacity for you. Typically, the vehicle towing capacity both with and without weight distribution will be listed in the vehicle manual, or this would also be something on which you could contact the dealer. We have an informational article, see link, that explains many of the factors to be considered when using and selecting a weight distribution system. The hitches we offer...

  • Where are the Torque Specs for the Bolts on CURT Trailer Hitch 13445 for a Lexus GX470
  • CURT provides the torque ratings for the bolts for hitch # 13445 in the installation instructions which I have linked for you. When installing the hitch on a 2003 to 2009 Lexus GX 470, make sure to follow the torque specs as indicated in the instructions. Applying too much torque can damage the hitch and vehicle. Too little and the hitch will not be properly secured.

  • Is There a Front Mount Bike Rack For Jeep Wrangler
  • If you have a front mounted hitch on your Jeep Wrangler then you would be able to mount a bike rack to that hitch. All the front mount hitches that we have available for the Jeep Wrangler are 2 inch hitches, so any hitch mounted bike rack, that fits 2 inch hitches, will work on your Jeep Wrangler. Keep in mind that the bike rack and bikes may obstruct your view when driving. You may also have to relocate your front license plate if the bikes or bike rack blocks it from being visible. We...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Tail Lights Not Working After Replacing Old Lights with LEDs
  • This sounds like a ground problem. Most likely it is a bad or loose ground connection in one of the tail lights on the trailer. A bad ground will not allow the circuit to be complete and the lights will not work. But, this is an easy fix. All you will have to do is go back to each of the lights you have installed and make sure the grounds are properly connected to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface. Many trailer lights ground through their mounting studs. If there is any...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for a 2012 Dodge 3500 Dually Megacab with 6 foot 4 inch Bed
  • If your 2012 Dodge Ram Pickup 3500 dually has a 6 foot 4 inch bed, then the Curt Custom Fifth Wheel Installation Kit # C16420-204, will work on your truck, see instructions. This kit works with the Mega Cab trucks and on trucks that have overload springs. I spoke with my contact at Curt Mfg. and if your truck has a 64 inch bed they do not recommend using any of their fifth-wheel installation kits in the 2012 Dodge trucks with beds shorter than 6 feet. I checked with our other suppliers...

  • What Is Needed to Tow a 21 Ft. Fifth Wheel with a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 Short Bed
  • The first thing you will need is an install kit. A fifth wheel install kit provides a set of brackets that attach to the truck frame under the truck bed and a set of rails that bolt through the bed to the brackets. The rails sit in the bed and the actual hitch is pinned to these rails. The installation kit for your truck is part # RP30035 from Reese. I have added a link to the kit and the instructions below. See page 14 of the instructions for your particular vehicle. Once you have...

  • How to Unstick a Stuck Ball in a Curt Quick Goose 2 Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • I have some solutions for you to try to get that troublesome Quick Goose, # C630-652, unstuck. I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said that usually the ball gets stuck down as opposed to up. What he suggested first is to go underneath the truck where the hitch is installed and clean and lubricate all of the moving parts of the hitch. Then, try to move the levers and other moving parts back and forth to get the ball to move. If you can free the ball, make sure to clean inside the...

  • Gooseneck to 5th Wheel or 5th Wheel to Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Options for a Lifted Truck
  • With a lifted truck, it will be a tight fit, but I may have a couple of options for you. First, take a look at the Hi-Rise Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Adapter, # 9480. This will fit a B and W Turnover style gooseneck hitch. The hitch height is adjustable from 14-1/4 inches to 18 inches. You will need to measure from the bottom of the pin box (not the king pin) to the top of the bed to determine if this height is too much or not enough. Another option is a 5th wheel to gooseneck...

  • Bumper Mount Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Toyota Tacoma
  • The CURT Bumper Hitch, # E-3S, would be a good choice. Make sure to check the dimensions of the hitch against the space on the bumper to ensure fit. The dimensions are shown on the last two pictures on the product page. If you do not have the holes present on the bumper you will need to drill. I have included a link to the installation details for you. The other option is to install a frame mount trailer hitch. The most popular frame mount hitch for a 2002 Toyota Tacoma is Hidden Hitch...

  • Can Curt Trailer Hitch # 13091 Be Mounted Upside Down and Retain the Same Towing Capacity
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about trailer hitch # 13091. The hitch is designed to fit a 1992 to 2000 Mitsubishi Montero 2 or 4 door (but not Sport models), so if it is being installed on one of those specific vehicles, it cannot be used upside down. However, if you plan to use this trailer hitch for a different application like a custom build, then you can install it upside down and it will maintain the 400 pound tongue weight capacity and 4,000 pound gross trailer weight capacity....

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Recommendation For 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup With Shortbed
  • The Curt Fifth Wheel, part # 16516, is a fit for your 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup with a 6 ft 4 inch bed. This slider has a 4-way pivoting head and has a 16000 lb maximum trailer weight, and 4000 lb vertical load weight limit. This hitch also has 3 height settings from 15 to 17 inches, and the slider moves the hitch head 12 inches. Another note is If using a slider, this hitch will not adjust to lowest height setting. This hitch will not work in trucks with Flareside/Stepside beds For...

  • Do I Have Enough Clearance On my Ford F250 6 ft bed to Turn Sharp with a Gooseneck Trailer
  • In order to determine if you will have enough clearance or how much of an extension would be required to safely execute a 90 degree turn you will need to take a few measurements and use the following formula. The formula looks like this: (A + B) - C = Clearance Where A equals distance from center of gooseneck coupler to truck cab, B equals the distance in front of or behind the the front of your trailer the center of the coupler is. So if there was an overhang on the front of the...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Options for a Flat Bed Truck with a Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
  • The only option that does not require removing the gooseneck hitch would possibly be the Hi-Rise, # 9480. If the gooseneck trailer hitch is a B&W Turnover Ball, Hide-A-Goose by Draw-Tite or Reese or Under-Bed by Bulldog then you can use the Hi-Rise. Otherwise you would need to remove the gooseneck hitch then have a 1/2 inch steel plate welded to the frame by a qualified professional. Then you could use the Reese low-profile hitch # RP30054. I have included a link to a video review and...

  • How to Remove the Rear Bumper to Install Curt Hitch # C11744 on 1999 Mercedes-Benz E320 Sedan
  • The steps to remove your rear bumper are detailed in step two of the installation instructions that I have attached for you. First, you will temporarily remove plastic panel on inside edge of tire well by removing two screws and pulling out retaining clips. Under this panel there are three bumper retaining nuts recessed in the rear panel. Note: mounted to the inside surface of the bumper fascia are cellular telephone antennas on both left and right sides. Next, carefully slide antennas...

  • What is the Towing Capacity for a 2002 Dodge Neon
  • Your 2002 Dodge Neon is capable of safely towing a maximum of 1500 pounds. For your vehicle, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch, part # 24701. The 2000 pound towing figure refers to the capacity of the hitch, not the capacity of the vehicle itself. When towing, you must go by the lowest rated component, hitch or vehicle, in this case the vehicle has a lower capacity than the hitch. You cannot pull a trailer over 1,500 pounds with your Neon.

  • Drill Bit for Drilling Into a Steel Frame to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2001 BMW 5 Series
  • I am not entirely certain of what grade or gauge steel is used on the various components of a 2001 BMW 5 series. However, there are some special drill bits that work quite well for steel components. You can use these special drill bits, called a Rotabroach bit. According to the installation instructions for CURT Trailer Hitch, # 11179, you will need to drill 7/16 inch holes and 3/8 inch holes. For a 7/16 inch rotabroach bit, use # 40110. And for a 3/8 inch, use # 40109.

  • Is the # 11280 Hitch for Subaru Baja The Same as a Dealer Installed Hitch
  • If you have a 2003 to 2007 Subaru Baja, the Curt Trailer Hitch, item # 11280, will fit and should install in basically the same location as an OEM hitch. As far as it being the same hitch that the dealer will install, one cannot be sure. Many dealers save on cost by purchasing aftermarket hitches and installing them rather than installing OEM products. You will need to contact the dealer to see what brand of trailer hitch they will install on your vehicle if you get one from them. Installation...

  • Recommendations for Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with a Short Bed Truck with a Gooseneck Hitch
  • Since you have a short bed truck I would not recommend you use a fifth wheel to gooseneck adapter to tow your RV. The problem will be that you will not have enough clearance to make 90 degree turns with the RV because of the lack of clearance between the front of the trailer and the cab of your truck. Some fifth wheel trailers do not recommend the use of adapters so you will want to check the owners manual of the trailer as well. Honestly the best recommendation I could give you would...

  • Does the Fuse Holder Wire Loop Need to Be Cut to Install the Fuse Holder
  • Yes, you are correct. You will need to cut the loop, strip both ends of the wire and then use the included butt-end connectors to attach the fuse to the Curt Wiring Harness # 56061 and the ring terminal to the positive side of the battery in your 2012 Subaru Impreza Sedan. I would recommend cutting the wire in the middle so that you have equal distance of wire on either side of the fuse.

  • Availability of a Class V Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The reason that aftermarket hitches cannot be installed on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 with a factory installed trailer hitch is because the hitch is welded to the rear cross member and cannot be removed. It the hitch on your truck was installed by the dealer and is bolted on, it can be removed and a new hitch installed in its place. If the hitch is bolted on, we do not carry a Class V hitch for your truck, but we do have a Class IV rated and 1,000 pounds tongue weight capacity and 10,000...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab Pickup Truck With Rambox
  • I just spoke with my contact at Curt and they told me that the Rambox does pose a big problem with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 and towing with a fifth wheel hitch. With the small area in the bed of the truck, it does not allow enough room to operate the handle of a slider fifth wheel hitch, and if a stationary hitch is installed, clearance is an issue. The type trailer you are towing is a big factor as well. If it is an older style trailer with the front corners at 90 degrees, they pose a...

  • Will Curt Bumper Mount Trailer Hitch # E-3S Fit a 2007 Toyota Tacoma Bumper
  • The Curt Bumper Hitch, part # E-3S, is made to attach to a truck step bumper. It is a universal fit design so it is not listed for a specific vehicle. The mounting holes are 8-1/2 inches center to center between the holes. If your 2007 Toyota Tacoma has a step bumper and has mounting holes with the 8-1/2 inch dimension then it will bolt to your bumper. If you do not have holes that will line up with the hitch then you can still use the hitch but you would have to drill new holes. I am...

  • Towing Capacity of a 2004 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty Pickup
  • I can not speak for any manufacturers ratings either on your truck or on your OEM hitch. That being said you would need to talk to someone at the Chrysler/Dodge dealer to obtain the actual ratings on your hitch and truck. You should be able to find the tow ratings on your truck in the owners manual or inside the drivers door jamb. Also if you could find out the manufacturer of the hitch on your dodge that would help. Reese and Draw-Tite do extensive in-house testing that insures the...

  • Bike Rack Options for a 2007 Toyota Tundra Towing an A-Frame Travel Trailer
  • I have a couple of ideas that might work for you. First, take a look at the CURT Multipurpose Ball Mount, # D210. What this is going to do is allow you to put a bike rack in the top receiver and tow a trailer with the ball mount part. The receiver part measures 4-3/4 inches from the top of the shank to the bottom of the receiver. This may be enough to hold the bikes above the items on the trailer frame, especially if that bike rack also has a rise in the shank. The multipurpose ball...

To install, you would need to unscrew and disconnect the tail lights. Then you would need to unbolt and remove the plastic bumper cover.

These spacers are 1/4 inches thick. If you are using these and still have 1/8 of a gap, a slightly thicker spacer can be used as long as you make sure to tighten the bolts as specified in the instructions.
