This hitch is not designed to use any kind of rivet on your vehicle for installation.

  • Installation Difficulty of Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness for 2016 BMW X5
  • The difficulty of the installation will depend on your experience. If you've never installed a trailer hitch or vehicle wiring, or you do not have much mechanical experience, the installation of any of the hitch and wiring options for your 2016 BMW X5 can be difficult as both installations are involved. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch # 75600. This trailer hitch features a 2 inch hitch receiver with a tongue weight capacity of 600 pounds...

  • Selecting Correct Ball Mount for Use with Class II Hitch on 2010 Dodge Avenger
  • Your 2010 Dodge Avenger can be fitted with either a light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch like Draw-Tite # 24871 or a higher-capacity Class II type like # 36448. If you have a Class I hitch you need to use the recommended ball mount shown on the hitch page, but if you have a Class II hitch like # 36448 or # 90166 you can select a compatible Class II ball mount with the specific amount of height rise or drop you need to keep the hitched trailer level and with the length you need for good clearance...

  • What Is Weight Capacity for Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch For 2004 Ford F-350
  • The cargo capacity of the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch, part # 65022 is 500-lbs. In the installation instructions it states that the capacity is 500-lbs OR the vehicle front gross axle rating. I recommend you check your owner's manual or with your dealership to make sure you do not exceed the cargo carrying capacity of your truck. Keep in mind also that carrying a motorcycle on the front of your truck will reduce the air flow to your radiator and the motorcycle may block your headlights....

  • Is Drilling Required For Installation Of Trailer Hitch On 1994 Ford Explorer
  • All of the trailer hitches offered for your 1994 Ford Explorer do require drilling. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 75096. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. Per the attached instructions you will use the hole in the trailer hitch bracket as a template and drill a 1/2-inch hole in the vehicle frame rail. This trailer hitch has a 5,000-lb towing capacity but you will want to check your owner's manual or with a dealership to make...

  • Brake Controller Wiring Installation in 2012 GMC Terrain
  • The vehicle wire that needs to connect to the brake controller's red input signal wire is the one that goes to the cold side of the brake light switch. This is the wire that goes hot only when you press on the brake pedal but at no other time. A circuit tester like # 3808 or # ALL640595 will let you test to find this wire. The remaining three wires from the controller connect as follows: the WHITE ground wire connects to battery ground terminal; the BLACK 12V power wire connects to the...

  • What Is Normal Operating Temperature Of Transmission Fluid When Towing
  • The normal operating temperature of transmission fluid should be between 160 to 200 degrees. I have heard it is not advisable to run a transmission higher than 210 degrees. Transmission fluid starts to break down at 260 degrees. I have attached links to a couple helpful articles about transmission coolers you can check out. I have also attached a link to our product page for the transmission coolers we offer that are designed to work with your Durango.

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Highlander
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2012 Toyota Highlander is the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 75726. I recommend this hitch because it has a higher tongue weight capacity than some other hitches confirmed to fit your Highlander. This trailer hitch will not require drilling for installation and it will allow you to keep you full size spare tire stowed under your vehicle. The Curt trailer hitch for your vehicle requires the use of a stabilization strap...

  • Receiver Tube Height for Draw-Tite Custom-Fit Class V hitch 41947 on 1997 GMC K3500
  • Draw-Tite custom-fit Class V hitch # 41947, which fits trucks with an outside-to-outside frame width of 34-inches, can be installed at any of three heights, thanks to the multiple holes in the two frame brackets. I can give you these heights referenced to the bottom of the frame rails. The TOP of the receiver tube will sit below the bottom of the frame any of these three distances: 6-5/8-inches, 8-1/4-inches or 10-1/4-inches. The written instructions are linked for you; these list the...

  • Adapter Availability for Converting American 7-Way Trailer Connector to European 7-Way
  • The European 7-Way does the same thing that the US 4-Way does. There isn't an adapter available because the European 7-Way has separate circuits for nearly every function on each side of the trailer. The US style 4 or 7-Way has combined brake lights and turn signals. What you will have to do is change over the US style 7-Way to a European one. You will need 1 European style vehicle side 7-Way and one special converter that separates the combined signals to separate ones. You will...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for 1995 Chevrolet K3500 with Modified Truck Bed
  • At least 2 of your photos came through with the question, thank you for submitting those! Since there have been modifications made to your 1995 Chevrolet K3500, I cannot guarantee that a custom fit hitch for the 1995 K3500 cab/chassis will still fit your truck. I recommend going with a weld-on trailer hitch. The highest weight capacity hitch that I recommend for your truck is the Draw-Tite Class IV Weld-On Ultra Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 41990. This hitch offers a 2 inch receiver...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 1997 Ford E-350 Passenger Bus
  • Good news, I can help you find a hitch that will fit your 1997 Ford E-350 Bus. The fact that this is a bus means that the cab is a Ford E-350 but the chassis is not the same as the standard van chassis. This means that you will need a bolt-on or weld-on hitch depending on your chassis' application, like Draw-Tite Class IV # 41991-16 or the same Draw-Tite hitch with shorter brackets # 41991-07. If you wanted to complete your towing setup you may also be interested in the Curt Hitch...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Magnets On 1992 Fleetwood Prowler Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • When testing each individual electric brake magnet the amperage draw would be 3.2 to 4.0 max amps at 12 to 13 volts on 10 and 12-inch brake magnets. Sounds like you are right there with your tests. Also, it sounds like you are getting the right current with the brake controller when you are testing it with the manual override. I have attached a link to a helpful article that explains how to do a bench test on the brake magnets you can check out. As far as setting the gain all the...

  • Where Does an LED Tailgate Light Bar Wire Up on a 1997 Chevy C/K Series Truck
  • Those wires that you have found might be correct to use for a tailgate light bar but to be sure you would have to test them with a circuit tester such as # 3808. The easiest option would be to install a 4-Way trailer connector, # 118325, that will just plug in line with the main tail light wiring harness in the truck and provide a 4-Way flat trailer connector. I have included a link to a video showing how it installs.

  • How to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • There isn't a port to plug in a brake controller on your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The controller has to be hardwired in. If your Jeep has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector then you would need installation kit # 5506. The brake controller should have come with a universal hardwire harness, # 20127. If you do not have it then you can just cut the connector off of the end of the controller. The brake controller black wire will go through the firewall and connect to the...

  • Tongue Weight Capacity for Hidden Hitch on a 2014 Toyota Prius V
  • The Hidden Hitch part # 60263 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2014 Prius V. It has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. It sounds like this hitch would have enough capacity for what you are trying to carry with it. But we can't safely recommend you go against what Toyota recommends in the owners manual of your vehicle.

  • Will the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch fit a 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country
  • Thanks for sending a picture! It certainly helps. Yes, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame trailer hitch receiver # 75916 will fit your 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country. If you have a 2016 model, it hasn't been tested yet. In order to complete the installation, fascia trimming is required and underbody panel will need to be temporarily removed. Great thing is that no drilling is required. If you plan on towing, you will need trailer wiring # 118647 but if your model was built prior to the mid year...

  • No Right Turn Power on Pin 2 on a 10-Way Connector on a 2007 Jeep Commander
  • Thanks for sending a diagram! The fuse panels on your 2007 Jeep Commander are located under the hood and on the lower instrument panel just to the left of the steering column. I did some research on your Jeep and fuse location number 21 (rear turn/taillights) in the front underhood fuse box is a 20 amp yellow mini fuse. Replace if blown. I would still take a look at your owners manual to confirm and I think it's page 399. I would also check your 10-pin connector for any corrosion...

  • 4-Pole to 4-Pole Adapter to Connect a Colorado Sport Trailer to a 2004 Ford Ranger
  • Thanks for the pictures! On your Colorado Sport trailer, I have a solution for you but the connector that came with your trailer doesn't match the typical style vehicle trailer connectors and unfortunately no adapter is available. I recommend splicing in the Draw-Tite 4-pole trailer end connector # 18004 as it will connect with your existing 4-pole connector on your 2004 Ford Ranger. Because your trailer uses separate turn signals from the brake lights, you will also need to splice...
