  • How to Determine Correct Ball Mount Rise or Drop for Towing a Trailer with a 17 Inch Coupler Height
  • Normally trailer coupler height is around 17 inches, from the ground to the bottom of the coupler, and most hitch manufacturers design their hitches to work with a ball mount that will end up very close to this measurement. I am including a link to an instruction page detailing how to measure for the correct ball mount and how to measure the ball mount. With the Curt Trailer Hitch, item # 13555, for your 2008 Honda CRV the recommended ball mount is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, item # 2753,...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Honda Pilot
  • Yes, the Curt Hitch part # C13146 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Honda Pilot so it would work well for you. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you wanted to do 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...

  • Is a 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch Ball a Standard Size for a Hitch Ball
  • 2 inch or 2-5/16 inch diameter balls are pretty standard sized balls, it is not surprising that the coupler on the 1997 Coleman camper accepts either one of those sizes. For a 2 inch ball I would recommend a Hitch Ball with 2 inch Diameter and Medium Shank, part # 19247. If you need a ball mount as well I would recommend a Ball Mount 2-3/4 inch Rise or 4 inch Drop, part # 2753.

  • Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2014 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Dodge introduced a multiplex type of wiring called Powernet starting in 2013. Traditional brake controller harnesses would not work with it. So manufacturers developed a new harness that will work with the Powernet. The dealer may not know of the aftermarket options and the new wiring harnesses developed for use with the Powernet system. But you can very much install an aftermarket one if you want to. If you like Curt brake controller # C51130 then for a 2014 Ram 1500 you will need harness...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Use on the Back of a Crossroads 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We have a couple of different options in terms of trailer hitches for 5th wheel trailers. The Curt Hitch, # E-100, that you have referenced is designed to fit on 4 inch square channel bumpers. You will need to check to see if your bumper fits this description and if it is rated for this application. I recommend going with a frame mount hitch. The most versatile frame mount hitch we offer is Curt Hitch, # 13703. It can be bolted or welded on and fits C-channel, I-beam, and Box frames....

  • Best Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Ball for 2016 Ford F-350 with Factory Gooseneck/5th Wheel Prep Package
  • The correct gooseneck ball kit for your brand new 2016 Ford F-350 with the factory prep package is # C60609. It includes the actual 2-5/16 inch ball, safety chain loops, and a rubber cover to cover the ball hole when the ball isn't being used. If you want the ball by itself it is # C60601. I have linked videos for both parts for you. We have one physical location in Missouri but we can ship products to Denver fast so you can place your order with confidence.

  • Trailer Hitch that is Hidden and Wiring for a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • I will be happy to help. For your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Curt trailer hitch # C13172 will only have the receiver visible. the rest of the hitch will be out of sight. I have linked a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend 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,...

  • What is the Best Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for My 2012 Ford Edge Crossover
  • The hitch mounted cargo carrier that is selected most by our customers that have a 2012 Ford Edge, is the Pro Series 24 x 60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153. This carrier is not a folding style carrier like the one you referenced though, but does have a larger platform and cutouts to insert taillights, like part # 98174LED, if the cargo you will be carrying might cover the vehicle taillights. If you like the folding option, the Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18151, that you referenced is our best...

  • Recommended Hitch for Rear of Fifth Wheel Camper for Bike Rack
  • We do offer some frame mounted RV hitches, which you can see by clicking the provided link. To determine which hitch would work best, you will need to measure the distance between your frame members, measured from the outside of one frame member to the outside of the other. If this distance is between 47-71 inches, the Hidden Hitch # 82201 would be my recommendation. There are a few things to be aware of when using an RV mounted hitch like this: 1) The hitch itself is rated for...

  • How to Properly Set the Tension on the Curt Sway Control Bar # 17200
  • The handle is actually the on/off switch for the unit and the bolt under the handle is the tension adjustment bolt. You will need to turn the On/Off handle clockwise (tighter) until the handle will stay firmly in place parallel with the main body of the sway control. Start out setting the sway control by testing with the adjustment bolt at the factory preset level of friction. You will need to perform a series of road tests with the loaded trailer. If there is not enough sway control...

  • How to Activate Trailer Lights on 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with C55515 Wiring Harness
  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and he said if you have installed the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C55515, you will not need to do anything with the fuses to enable the trailer lights. However, you will need to take your vehicle to your Jeep dealer and have them reprogram the Jeep's computer to activate the trailer wiring harness. It will take about 10 minutes.

  • Class II and Class III Trailer Hitches for 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
  • We can offer you either a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch # C12108 or a 2-inch Class III hitch # C13149 for your 2016 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid. These models, engineered primarily for the gas models, do also fit the hybrids. They do not fit the full electric versions. I confirmed this with my technical contact at Curt. I recommend you go for the larger Class III hitch unless you have a specific need for a smaller 1-1/4-inch. A 2-inch Class III hitch will offer broader compatibility with a wide range...

  • What is the Torque Specification for Installing Curt Class III 2-Inch Trailer Hitch # 13314
  • The correct torque specification for the installation hardware on Curt hitch # 13314 is 70-ft/lbs. In order to have the full rated capacity for this hitch (350-lbs tongue weight and 3500-lbs gross trailer weight) it must be installed to this spec. I have linked the installation instructions for your review. These are brief but they do include much important information to ensure your hitch installation is complete and safe. Step 4 mentions the torque spec. Please also note that if...

  • Trailer Hitch Ball Wrench Size and Torque Rating for 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Ball Shank Size
  • You can have a 2-5/16 inch hitch ball on either a 1 inch or 1-1/4 inch shank. The nut on a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank takes a wrench with a 1-7/8 inch socket. A hitch ball with a 1 inch shank will take a wrench with a 1-1/2 inch socket. Our Trailer Hitch Ball Wrench, part # 62342, is specifically designed for the purpose of tightening down a hitch ball with either a 3/4 inch or 1 inch shank. You will need to torque all hitch balls with a 1-1/4 inch shank, like 2-51/6 inch hitch...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch for a 2016 Ram 2500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • For a 5th wheel hitch that fits directly into the factory 5th wheel prep package in your 2016 Ram 2500 you can use B&W hitch # BWRVK3600. But on a short bed truck even the mounting range of the B&W hitch head might not provide enough clearance to make tight turns safely. What I recommend is to use Demco adapter # DM6099 which fits in the Ram factory prep package. This will act as a base for the Demco HiJacker, # DM8550035, rated for 21,000 pounds. Another benefit is that this hitch slides...

  • Differences between Curt Q20 Slider Hitch and Reese R16 Slider Hitch
  • To address your concern about the compatibility of the Reese R16 Slider Hitch, # RP30869, with the Curt Custom Rail Kit, # C16448-204, they are compatible with each other. The above bed base rails that are used with the Curt Custom kits are the industry standard above bed rails that are used by Reese and other fifth wheel hitch manufacturers. The custom aspect of the Curt rail kit is the brackets. There is no drilling (into the frame) required to install the custom brackets and they...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with RamBox and 6-Foot Bed
  • A short bed truck by itself can pose a challenge for 5th wheel towing due to the limited front-to-back clearance between the truck cab and the trailer's overhang. When we add the Rambox feature we also add another complication: reduced side-to-side clearance. Hitch makers like Reese, Curt and B&W discourage use of 5th wheels in such trucks; that said, there are those that have satisfactorily installed 5th wheels anyway. The best solution for the turning clearance problem in such trucks...

  • Recommended Sliding 5th Wheel Hitch for 2013 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • Either the Curt # C16536 Q20 Fifth Wheel Hitch w/ Slider with its 20K capacity or the 20K Capacity B&W BWRVK3270 Patriot Sliding Fifth wheel hitch would be a great choice. Both hitches are high quality, and would offer you a secure, relatively smooth ride. For the Curt hitch, use the # C16426-204 rail kit or for the B&W Patriot, use # BWRVK2601. My only issue with bed rail mounted hitches is the fact that the rails remain in the bed when you're not using the hitch. If you don't use...

  • Towing capacity of a 2014 Ford F-150 4x4 SuperCrew 145 Inch Wheelbase 3.5L EcoBoost 3.55 Rear End
  • I looked up the owners manual for the 2014 Ford F-150. On a 4x4 SuperCrew with the 3.5 liter EcoBoost, 145 inch wheelbase, and 3.55 rear end the gross combined weight rating will either by 13,400 pounds (for limited models) or 15,500 pounds. If you subtract the gross vehicle weight rating of 7,200 pounds then the max you can tow will either be 6,200 pounds or 8,300 pounds. Of course if the gross weight of the truck when loaded with cargo, fuel, and occupants is only 6,000 pounds then you...

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-way Trailer Connector on 2011 Honda Pilot
  • The procedure for installing a 7-way trailer connector will depend on whether your Pilot is equipped with the 4 or the 6 cylinder engine. 6 cylinder engines are equipped with the factory towing connector located behind the bumper on the driver's side (see photo.) If this connector is present, you can indeed install the Curt 7-way, part # 56097. The taillight converter as well as the necessary fuses and relays are included to activate the factory tow package.

The Yellow wire is the center pole of the 7-Way connector and is normally used for connection to the reverse light circuit. In your case you will not need the yellow wire. The blue wire is for connection of the electric brake feed wire from a brake controller. You will need a brake controller in your Sienna to activate the...

  • 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...

Typically the various hitch receivers offered by the major manufacturers will tend to be of fairly similar proportions, which...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 27-Foot 7800-lb Trailer with 680-lb Dry Hitch Weight

You also need to add in the weight of anything in the truck that sits behind the rear axle, such as a generator or loaded cooler. You want this total TW to fall into the middle of the operating range for a WD system so that it can move some...

  • How to Extend Trailer Safety Chains that are Too Short to Reach Loops in Hitch Receiver
  • If you want to just add on some sort of extension you can use Safety Chain Quick Link # 49135 which has a working load limit of 3300-lbs. This will give you about 3-inches additional length. Ideally trailer safety chains will be one continuous chain, without additional connection points or extenders. The best solution is to replace your safety chains with new ones of the appropriate rating and length, such as TowReady # TR63035 (sold as a single piece) which is 72-inches long and that...

  • Slider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Adapter for a 2015 Ram 3500 Short Bed with Factory Prep Package
  • First, the toolbox will likely have to come out because even if it doesn't interfere with the hitch base it could interfere with the pin box on the trailer when making tight turns. To install a slider hitch in your 2015 Ram 3500 short bed with the factory prep package you will need an adapter since none of the slider hitches are a direct fit in the Ram puck system. And for a hitch, I recommend going with a slider that has the most travel to help make tight turns. For an adapter you...

For the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500, I recommend the Curt Q24 5th Wheel Hitch, # C16545-16025 because it was specifically designed to drop right into the under-bed mounts that come on your truck and it has a towing capacity of up to 24K. One thing to keep in mind is that this hitch is not compatible with Sidewinder or Reese Revolution pin boxes because the wedge on the bottom of those pin boxes can damage the Q series head. If you have a Sidewinder or Reese...
