Expert Answers about Draw-Tite

  • If Not Using a Brake Controller Does it Have to be Removed
  • If you won't be using the brake controller you can remove it if you want to. Or you can keep it there in case you ever tow anything with electric brakes. It will be perfectly fine either way.

  • Trailer Hitches and Wiring for a 2013 Subaru Forester and 2015 Audi Q5
  • First, for your 2015 Audi Q5 the most popular trailer hitch option is # C13136. I have included a link to a video showing installation on a 2014 Q5 which will be the same as your 2015. For a wiring harness you will need to visit an Audi dealer since there are no confirmed wiring fits for the 2015 models at this time. If you plan on doing 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...

  • Tekosha Electric Brake Control Wiring Harness for a 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500HD
  • Your 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500 has a port that you can plug a brake controller into. It is under the dash, driver's side, near the back of the floorboard (forward on the vehicle). You would need wiring harness # 3025-P to plug in a Tekonsha brake controller. Or, if your controller doesn't have a plug on the back of it you would use # 20263 and wire it up color for color to the back of the controller. There may be some additional connections that will need to be made under the hood to...

  • Class III Trailer Hitch Installation Video for 2015 BMW X5 SUV
  • We produce installation videos for hitches whenever our local customers bring their vehicles in to us. At this time we have not yet had a local customer with a 2015 BMW X5 come in for a hitch install. However, the linked install video for Draw-Tite hitch # 75600 showing a 2011 model year X5 will still be a good representation. My contact at Draw-Tite confirmed that the installation steps will be essentially identical for your 2015 model year. Steps include some trimming of the rear...

  • Trailer Hitch Capacity for 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid to Transport Electric Wheelchair
  • Your 2014 Lincoln MKZ can be fitted with two classes of 1-1/4-inch hitch, either a light-duty Class I type like the # 24897 that you referenced, or a higher-capacity Class II type, Curt hitch # C12091. In order to transport your wheelchair you will need to use this Class II hitch. This Curt hitch has a 350-lb tongue weight (TW) capacity. TW is the downward force on the hitch from what is attached to it. You can transport your chair on this hitch as long as the combined weight of the...

  • How to Complete the Reverse Light Circuit of a 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • Sounds like something Uhaul would do. Just kidding, there is a large group of people who don't end up using the reverse light circuit of their trailer wiring so I could see them not completing that circuit when they did your install. They should have asked you though. What you are going to need to do is first determine which wire of your vehicle taillight wiring carries voltage when the reverse lights are applied.

  • Could the Draw Tite Front Hitch # 65046 Handle Weight of Thule T2 4 Bike Rack Loaded
  • The front hitch part # 65046 that you referenced can handle a vertical load of up to 500 lbs. From a weight capacity standpoint that would be more than enough for the weight of a Thule T2 part # TH916XTR-918XTR. You should note that carrying a bike rack on the front of a vehicle can obstruct your headlights and airflow to the radiator. Especially one with 4 bikes.

  • Class III Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Subaru Forester
  • That is interesting that the Class III hitch # 75876 uses smaller bolts than the Class II hitch. All I can really say on that is that Draw Tite tested each hitch with the included hardware and they both met the listed capacities just fine so there would be no need to use the slightly thicker bolts of the Class II hitch. The Curt hitch that has been confirmed to fit your vehicle part #C13144 does use the 1/2 inch diameter bolts so that might be your best option.

  • Troubleshooting Lighting Issues on 1998 Toyota Tacoma Using Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness
  • It sounds to me like the wiring harness has a bad converter and it will need to be replaced. For this you can use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118379. I do recommend that you do a quick inspection of the wiring on your trailer to make sure that it isn't to blame for the bad converter. This is a common problem where a cut or exposed wire on the trailer causes a short and takes out the converter. To prevent this from happening again, any and all repairs to the trailer wiring should...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Trailer Wiring For 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon

  • Hitch and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2014 GMC Acadia
  • The Draw Tite Hitch part # 75528 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2014 GMC Acadia so it would work well for you. You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # C56202. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video...

  • Will Kuat NV Bike Carrier Clear Rear Bumper on 2000 Subaru Outback with Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch
  • On Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 36284 it measures approximately 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper on a 2000 Subaru Outback Wagon. The Kuat NV, # N102 for 1-1/4 inch hitches, sticks out 7-1/16 inches to the nearest part of the carrier when folded up and 9-1/2 inches when folded down so it will clear the rear of the Outback.

  • 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.

  • Does Bumper Fascia have to be Cut or Trimmed to Install Trailer Hitch on a 2014 Nissan Versa
  • You will not have to trim or cut the bumper fascia to install Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24887 on your 2014 Nissan Versa. There is a heat shield underneath that has to be trimmed. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you that show where to trim the heat shield. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited...

  • New Electric Trailer Brakes Not Working After Installation on 5th Wheel Trailer
  • It is possible that the wire gauge used on the trailer is not large enough to handle the current required by the new brakes. We recommend using 10 gauge wire such as # 10-1-1 in these situations. Also, make sure that the magnets on the brakes are grounded to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces near the magnets. You may also need to have the drums inspected to see if they need to be turned or replaced. If any grease got inside the drum or on the shoe pads then that would negatively...

  • How to Determine Ground Clearance on a 2015 Honda Fit with Draw-Tite Hitch Before Installation
  • On Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24920 and all of the hitches for the 2015 Honda Fit the receiver will be directly below the rear fascia. So if you measure from the bottom most part of the fascia down to the ground and subtract 1-3/4 inches that will be the approximate ground clearance measurement once the hitch is installed. On smaller vehicles that are low to the ground to start with, adding a trailer hitch usually reduces ground clearance so you have to keep that in mind when choosing...

  • What Front Mount Hitch will Provide the Most Ground Clearance on 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • The front mounted hitch receiver that will provide you the most amount of ground clearance on your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the Curt Custom Fit 2 Inch Hitch, # C31069. This hitch measures 9.52 inches from the frame mounting flange to the bottom of the hitch receiver opening. I have included a picture which illustrates this measurement. The Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 65064, that you mentioned reduces ground clearance just a hair more at 9.62 inches. I have...

  • Troubleshooting Tail Lights on Trailer Only Work When Running Lights Are Turned Off
  • I tend to think it's a ground issue or potential short on your vehicle side wiring. Make sure that the vehicle side and trailer side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. The main connector ground should be attached to clean and corrosion free bare metal surfaces. Also, I would check the grounds for each of your tail lights. If the trailer has an aluminum frame, tilt bed, or folding tongue, any of these things can interrupt the ground. Running jumper wires from the...

  • Are the Current Hanger Brackets of the Dual Cam Sway Control Curved or Straight
  • Actually the current generation of the Reese Dual Cam Sway Control part # RP26002 uses curved brackets. They have gone back and forth a few times changing them from straight to curved. Currently they are curved and are silver in color. If your system is working fine I would not recommend changing anything.

  • 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...

  • Dimensions of the Multifit Reese Hitch part # 41990
  • Mechanical drawings for the # 41990 are not available but I can tell you that the crosstube measures 3 inch by 3 inch, is 44 inches in overall length and the hitch opening is 2 inch by 2 inch. This is a weld on hitch that would require either the 7 inch drop brackets part # 4907 or the 16 inch brackets part # 4916.
