Expert Answers about Curt

  • Installation Procedure for Curt Class I Hitch # C13144 on 2015 Subaru Forester
  • According to the installation instructions, which I've linked for you, the head shields are removed and left off. With the hitch in place, the mounting flanges of the hitch will act as the heat shields and will prevent the heat from the exhaust from being conducted to the interior of the vehicle. Please be aware that if the hitch is used for non trailer loads like a cargo carrier or a bike rack, a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 must be used to comply with Curt's hitch warranty...

  • Does a Mounting Tab have to Be Welded to the Curt Weight Distribution Head to Use Sway Control
  • The head on the Curt weight distribution system # C17323 does have ears on both sides for the friction sway bar ball. They are part of the head assembly: all one piece. There is a rectangular piece of metal that comes with this kit and the friction sway bar that you would use to weld onto a ball mount if towing the trailer using a vehicle that cannot use weight distribution. So if you are using the whole system you would not weld that tab to anything. But if needed you could weld...

  • What Size Safety Chain Hook Will Fit Curt XD Class V Trailer Hitch # C15313
  • Since we have the referenced hitch, Curt Class V XD Trailer Hitch Receiver # C15313, in stock in our warehouse I paid a visit there with the Laclede 3/8-inch Clevis Hook # 6495-401-04. This clevis hook easily fit the safety chain holes on the hitch and allowed the retainer to snap closed. This clevis hook has a working load limit (WLL) of 5,400-lbs so a pair would offer enough capacity for all but the heaviest trailers.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2009 Acura MDX
  • I would recommend you get a supplemental transmission cooler for your vehicle if you plan on towing. The factory transmission cooler is often adequate at best for non-towing situations, so a supplemental cooler would greatly help extend the life of your transmission. Transmission coolers are not vehicle specific, you will need to measure the area in front of your radiator to determine what size cooler will fit and pick the one with those dimensions. If you can fit it, I would recommend...

  • Fit of Curt Class I # C11681 on 2015 Honda Accord Sedan Hybrid Model
  • According to my Curt representative, the procedure for installing their Class I hitch # C11681 on a Hybrid model 2015 Accord is no different from the model with the standard gasoline engine. The hitch is listed as a fit for ALL models of the 2015 Accord Sedan, including the Hybrid. If you're planning on using the hitch for light-duty towing purposes, I'd recommend you check the owner's manual first, to make sure Honda doesn't have any prohibitions regarding towing with a Hybrid. If they...

  • How to Change my Thule T2 Bike Rack from a 2-Inch to a 1/1/4 Inch Receiver for my 1998 Subaru Legacy
  • Since there isn't any 2-inch trailer hitch receivers that are fit-guided for your 1998 Subaru Legacy Outback, using the shank and backbone assembly # 753-3709. This will replace your current 2 inch backbone assembly with the 1-1/4 inch version. Another option, If you prefer to keep your T2 bike rack with the original 2 inch backbone assembly, is to add a hitch adapter such as # HTAD. But always keep in mind when adding an adapter the tongue weight capacity of your hitch will be reduced...

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
  • The Curt Front Mount Hitch Receiver, part # C31071, is confirmed as a fit for your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening and is an easy, bolt-on installation. If you need to maneuver a trailer using your front hitch I recommend a ball mount like part # 2923. This ball mount has a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. I have attached a link to a product review for this ball mount you can check out. If you need a hitch ball I recommend part # 63845 for the 2 inch...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2008 Lexus RX 350 with Factory Towing Package
  • In order to install a brake controller like the Curt Venturer, # C51110, on your 2008 Lexus RX 350, you will need to hardwire it in. There isn't a plug-in harness available for your vehicle. The first thing you will need is a 4-Way flat trailer connector, # 18002, unless your Lexus already has one. I have linked a video showing how it installs. After the 4-Way is installed, or if the vehicle already has a 4-Way, you will need to install a 7-Way. Use # ETBC7 which comes with the 7-Way...

  • Recommendation For Trailer Wiring Harness On 2014 Nissan Frontier
  • What you will need is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118525 if you don't have the tow package, or the # C55441 if you do have the tow package. Basically these two harnesses are the same except the # 118525 includes the relays and harnesses to activate the plug in harness that is on your 2014 Nissan Frontier. If you are unsure if you would need the relays of the # 118525 you can test the connector in the picture I attached that is under the rear of your vehicle for voltage when the taillight...

  • Trailer Wiring and Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder
  • I checked with Curt and they recommend the Curt Wiring Harness part # C55441 for your 2014 Nissan Pathfinder. They also say that if your vehicle doesn't have a tow package you will need to contact Nissan for the correct relay harness to activate the wiring that the # C55441 plugs into. Since it sounds like you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900.

  • Are Air Springs or Weight Distribution Better for Towing 31-foot Travel Trailer with 2011 Tundra
  • Rear axle suspension kits such as air bag or rubber jounce helper springs are best suited for applications with heavy (and/or uneven) cargo loads in the truck bed, while a weight distribution/sway control system will be a better option for towing a bumper-pull travel trailer. A properly chosen weight distribution setup, such as the Curt trunnion bar system # 17301 that you referenced, will help correct for rear-end squat by moving some of the trailer's tongue weight forward onto the Tundra's...

  • Availability of a Vertical Receiver Hitch for a 2014 Volvo XC 90
  • The Curt vertical receiver adapter, part # C45013 is designed to work only with the Curt Stealth Hitch, but it might possibly work with other vertical receivers. We currently don't offer a vertical hitch receiver, only an adapter. The crucial dimension will be distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on the vertical tube to the end of the receiver. If this distance is more than 7/8 of an inch, the Curt adapter # C45013 will not work for you. See the diagram to the right. If...

  • Recommended Trailing Hitch and Wiring for a 2011 Ford Explorer
  • Our most popular trailer hitch for your 2011 Ford Explorer is the Curt # C13100. It is a Class-III hitch and has a towing capacity of 4,000 pounds. It's a bolt on application so no drilling is required. In order for you to double-check if you have an existing towing package or not, is to have your local Ford dealer run your VIN. On that note, the wiring harness recommended if you have a tow package is Curt # C56172 as the T-connector plugs directly into your existing wiring. If you...

  • Bike Carrier for a 2014 Toyota Camry XLE
  • Part of what gives the hitch its weight capacity ratings is how it is installed on the vehicle. Leaving out some of the attachment points effectively makes the hitch capacity unknown and not safe to use. If you want to use a hitch mount bike rack you will have to do some drilling to install the hitch. But there is another option. Instead of using a trailer hitch and hitch mount bike rack you could use a trunk mount bike rack. I have included a link to the right to the trunk mount carriers...

  • The Curt Class I Receiver Hitch, # C11272, does indeed fit the 2013 Mini Cooper Hardtop with single exhaust, excluding the S Series and Works. I have attached the installation instructions for you. As you will see in the final steps the bumper will have to be trimmed in order to access the hitch receiver. I have also attached a picture pointing out this location. Curt does require the use of Support Straps, # 18050, for all non-trailer loads including bike racks, cargo carriers and...

  • Recommended Components Needed For Towing With 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe With Police Package
  • From my research on your 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe with the Police Package, I found that the trailer hitch receiver was a standard item. We do not list any rear mounted trailer hitches for the 2015 Tahoe. You may be interested in the 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. I have attached a product...

  • Will Using Curt Adjustable Ball Mount with a Reducer Sleeve Lower the Ball Mount Capacity
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about adjustable ball mount # C45900. He said that if you used a reducer sleeve that it will not reduce the capacity of the ball mount. You will want to check with the hitch manufacturer (or Dodge if it is an OEM hitch) to determine if the capacity of the hitch itself is reduced.

  • Torque For Bolts On Curt Trailer Hitch When Installing On 2014 Acura MDX
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt about your 2014 Acura MDX. They told me that the torque is 139 ft-lbs for the M14 bolts for the part # C13146 hitch installation. I am unable to tell you why the specs for the Acura OEM hitch is so much lower. As far as handling and feeling heavier, my contact said it may feel a bit different because installing the hitch will tighten up the frame on the rear of your MDX, but you really should not feel the 45 lb weight with the hitch installed.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The build dates do not apply to the 2002 Dodge Ram 1500, only to the 2003 models. For your 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 I have linked all of the trailer hitches that fit. The Curt trailer hitch that you referenced, # 13326 , will fit your Ram. This hitch will fit 2002 Dodge Ram 1500s and 2003 Dodge Ram 1500s that were built before 11-1-02.

  • What is a Sidewinder and Why Won't the Curt Q-Series Hitches Work with Them
  • A Sidewinder or Reese Revolution pin box is a very specific style of pin box replacement that allows short bed trucks to make tight turns without having to use a slider hitch. You would know if your trailer had one most likely. For more information on them check out the FAQ article I attached to the right. The jaws of the Q-Series Curt hitches are too wide for them to work with the Sidewinders.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 1998 GMC C/K Series Truck with 37 inch Frame
  • The hitches that are listed for the 1998 GMC trucks with 34 inch frames are the ones that are designed to fit the cab and chassis models. The # C14081 that you referenced would work well on your truck with a 37 inch frame since it is not a cab and chassis model and is a standard truck. Check out the install video I attached to the right for more info.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota Camry
  • A hitch that came off of a 1999 Toyota Camry would not also fit a 2015 Toyota Camry. The vehicles are different enough that a new hitch design would be required. The hitch you will want is the Curt Hitch part # C12107. The correct trailer wiring would be part # C55567. If you also need a ball mount you would want the # C45017 and then for hitch balls # 19256 and # 19258.
