  • The directions (see link) for the Draw-Tite Class V Titan Trailer Hitch, item # 45293, state that this hitch is not designed to work on trucks with beds shorter than 8 feet.

  • Troubleshooting Draw-Tite # 5100 Brake Controller Setup for Towing in Traffic and Smooth Braking
  • The Draw-Tite 2-4 Brake Electronic Brake Controller, item # 5100, is a time delayed brake controller and needs to be adjusted for braking power and delay. When the controller is adjusted correctly the brake controller will apply the trailer brakes shortly after the vehicle brakes are applied and will apply the brakes as hard as the setting is dialed up to. The problems you are experiencing are due to the style of controller and setup. Time delayed brake controllers brake the same exact amount th

  • For your 2010 Toyota Tacoma, you can use the Tow Ready brake controller harness, part # 20265. Just color match the wires from the harness to the loose wires on your brake controller.

  • Reese Brakeman 83501 Only Sends Power to Trailer Brakes When Using Manual Over Ride
  • Assuming the rest of the brake controller is wired properly, the blue brake switch wire should be sufficient to tell the brake controller that the brakes have been pressed. My thinking is that you need to adjust the power output on the brake controller. If the output control is set too low, you may not get sufficient braking power until you use the manual over-ride switch. If the power setting is at an appropriate level, there may be a wiring problem. Double check your ground. Make sure it ha

  • What Parts Can I Use to Adapt a 2 Inch Bike Rack to a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch for a Honda CR-V
  • You can use a 1-1/4 to 2 inch adapter like part # HTAD, however, this will reduce your tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24772 has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. If you were to use an adapter like # HTAD, your capacity would be 100 pounds. This means that the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes must be 100 pounds or less. If the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle is less than 200 pounds, take 50 percent of that number.

  • Installation of Brake Controller on a 1996 GMC with Brake Lead Hot All The Time At The Trailer
  • If the problem is that the brakes on the trailer are constantly engaged, most likely you have the red wire going from the brake switch to the brake controller hooked up to the wrong circuit. Use a circuit tester, item # 3808 if you need one, to find the wire coming out of the back of the brake pedal switch under the dash that is hot (12 volts) when the brake is applied and cold (no power) when the brake pedal is not applied. Another possibility is that you have the wire coming from the batte

  • What Does OL Error Mean on the Draw-Tite Activator II Trailer Brake Controller
  • What you are experiencing is an overload or short somewhere in the brake circuit connected to the Draw-Tite Activator II Brake Controller, part # 5500. Closely examine the brake output wire (usually blue). Make sure all connections are tight, and that the wire is not pinched or the insulation is not worn or nicked, allowing the conductor to short out on the trailer frame.

  • Troubleshooting Draw-Tite Activator II Brake Controller # 5500 OC Code
  • If you see the OC error message on the Draw-Tite Activator II Brake Controller, # 5500, it means that no trailer is connected (or that it thinks no trailer is connected), thus the controller does not recognize a connection to the trailer. If you do have a trailer connected, it is likely that either the brake wire has been broken or is shorting, or the trailer brake magnets need to be replaced.

  • LED Indicator Light on Trailer Brake Controller Will Not Come On

If your vehicle has a factory tow package and the brake controller wired or plugged right in to a factory wire bundle or connector then there is likely a brake controller fuse. Use the owners manual to find its location. You can also use a circuit tester such as # 40376 to test the brake controller black wire for power.

  • Weak Trailer Brakes Using Valley Journey HD Brake Controller on a 2005 Toyota Tundra
  • On the 2005 Toyota Tundra, if it came with a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector then the brake controller should have plugged into a factory port on the truck. If it did check to see if it has a separate ground wire like harness # 3040-P. A common issue on this truck is that the factory ground in the port is not sufficient for a brake controller. Adding a separate ground could be all you need to do. To check the brake controller you will want to use a multimeter such as # BTMT15. Sever

  • Ball Mount for 2000 Ford F-350 with Camper In Bed to Tow 2007 Hyundai Elantra on Tow Dolly
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is check the owners manual for the 2007 Hyundai Elantra to determine if it can be towed on a tow dolly. If the camper in the truck bed sit on or overhangs the tailgate you will want to get a longer ball mount. The longest ball mounts we carry measure 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. Ball mount # 80232 has a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and is rated for 6,000 pounds. Ball mount # 80233 has a 2-3/4 inch r

  • How to Carry 5 Bikes on a 2013 Toyota Prius V
  • You are correct. The use of an adapter such as # HTAD reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. That would reduce it to 100 pounds on Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24808. The combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed 100 pounds. But that is not the only problem. Class I trailer hitches like # 24808 are only rated to hold up to 2 bikes at most. The issue is that the weight will be too far from the receiver if adding a third or more bikes. This puts a lot

  • Trailer Brake Controller Not Applying Trailer Brakes on a 4-Car Trailer
  • It could be the controller or it could be a problem between the controller and the trailer brakes. The easiest thing to try first is to check the vehicle and trailer side connectors for any dirt or corrosion. Make sure they are clean inside and out. To test the brake controller you will start by severing the blue wire a few inches from the back of the controller. Then use a circuit tester such as # 40376 to test the end of the blue wiring coming out of the controller while fully applying the

  • How to Find Brake Controller Fuse on a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 with Factory Tow Package
  • I tried to find an online version of the owners manual for your 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 but was unable. The owners manual will have the fuse and relay locations. The brake controller wiring will be fused, it is just a matter of using the owners manual or power distribution box lid to find its location. If there is no power on the black wire on the controller then that indicates it is not receiving power and it is likely the fuse or relay.

  • Adding a Brake Controller to a 2005 Dodge Ram with Factory Installed 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • On the 2005 Dodge Rams that came with the factory 4-Way flat trailer connector, the brake output wire for electric brakes is not ran all the way to the back of the truck. It terminates at a connector that is located under the driver's side wheel well. In order to finalize the installation you must splice into this wire and continue it back to the plug using wire such as # 10-1-1 sold in increments of 1 foot.

  • Are the Curt # 17109 and Draw-Tite # 3311 W/D Spring Bar Retainer Clips Interchangeable
  • Curt and Draw-Tite are competitors, so neither company is going to tell us if the parts are interchangeable. I've provided a diagram showing the dimensions of the various parts of each kit. As you can see, there are some differences. Given that these kits are intended to hold the spring bars in, I'd honestly recommend using the Draw-Tite kit for a Draw-Tite w/d system, and the Curt kit for a Curt w/d system. If you were to lose a spring bar, the cost of replacing it would be quite a bit more

  • What is the Tongue Weight Capacity of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch 24805 for a 2009 Ford Focus

For trailer hitch # 24802 for your 2009 Ford Focus the tongue weight capacity is 200 pounds. You will want to check the Focus owners manual to see if it has a tongue weight capacity. Whichever is lower, the hitch or the vehicle, that is the capacity you will need to go by. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the hitch and a link t

  • Will Wheelchair Carrier Scrape Ground When Mounted to Class III Trailer Hitch on 1995 NIssan Quest
  • The Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75089 for your 1995 Nissan Quest will have the receiver directly under the rear bumper once it is installed. To determine if ground clearance will be a problem you will need to consider the carrier you are using. If its platform is higher up that the receiver then ground clearance will probably not be an issue. But if the platform comes straight out from the receiver then it is likely there could be some scraping when going up inclines or into dips. This trailer

If the ball mount is not specified in the owners manual for your 2014 Chevy Equinox then I recommend ball mount # 36051 since it is the correct ball mount for an aftermarket Draw-Tite hitch (# 36408).
