Expert Answers about Hidden Hitch

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The obsolete trailer hitch # 37042 did fit many vehicles, but it does not fit your 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Instead you would want the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75139 as this has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and is a 2 inch hitch. Check out the install video I attached. 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 with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop....

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Kia Forte
  • The Hidden Hitch part # 60335 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Kia Forte. When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle like a trailer hitch in this case, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act. This act states, in part, that unless the installation and the part caused a problem then the warranty cannot be voided. I recommend looking it up online. Normally we recommend that you always follow any and all towing restrictions for a vehicle that...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2011 Subaru Impreza
  • For your 2011 Impreza WRX Sedan, I recommend Hidden Hitch part # 60893 as long as you do not have the STi model. (There is currently no trailer hitch available for the STi.) This hitch includes the ball mount and the pin and clip used to secure the ball mount into the receiver. I have included a video review of this hitch on a Subaru Forester. The vehicle is different but the installation is similar. The custom fit wiring harnesses available for your 2011 Subaru Impreza are plug and...

  • 2005 Lexus RX 330 Trailer Hitch Recommendation
  • All three of the hitches recommended for your 2005 Lexus RX330, the Curt Hitch part # 13530, the Hidden Hitch part # 70778, and the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75153 will not interfere with the spare tire of your vehicle. It will install and remove on your vehicle just like normal. 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 with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop....

  • Trailer Hitch and 4-Bike Hitch Carrier Recommendations for 2009 Honda Odyssey
  • You came to the right place! Here at etrailer we can help you with both a trailer hitch for your 2009 Odyssey and a suitable bike rack for the family's 4 bikes. A hitch-mount rack is definitely the way to go for carrying 4 bikes on an Odyssey. Although there are trunk-mounts types available for your car, they can carry only 3 bikes. Since your total bike weight load is substantial - and will grow as the kids get larger bikes in the future - a hitch rack is the best option since it...

  • Using Two 18 Inch # HE18 Hitch Extenders to Launch and Retrieve Sailboat
  • The answer to your question will depend a lot on how much the tongue weight of the boat/trailer is. Using more than one extender is not something we recommend, because using one will lower the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by half. Adding another extender will bring the tongue load out to 3 feet rearward of the point where the first extender pins into the receiver, and at that point there would be an unknown amount of leverage applied to your hitch, and I couldn't say what the...

  • Using Hitch Cover to Cover Gooseneck Ball Hole In Truck Bed
  • If your gooseneck ball uses a square shank that measures 2 inches by 2 inches, the Hidden Hitch Logo Hitch Cover you referenced might work for you, but typically the square shank would be larger than 2 inches square, so the cover you referred to would likely be too small. Depending on the manufacturer of your hitch, there might be a purpose-built cover available. If you'd care to reply with the manufacturer and model of your hitch, I'd be happy to check on availability for you.

  • Reese Brakeman Brake Controller on a 2002 Ford F-150 Stopping Working
  • It does sound like you will need a new controller but first there are some tests you can do to determine if the problem is the controller. In the truck cab you will need to sever the blue wire several inches from the back of the controller. Then use a circuit tester such as # 3808 to test the end of the blue wire coming out of the controller. It should only have power when you apply the manual override. If it shows power at idle then there is something wrong with the controller and it...

  • Can the Fold Down License Plate Holder # 8802 be Mounted Upside Down
  • I think I know what you are trying to ask. Sounds like you are asking if the Fold Down License Plate Holder # 8802 can be mounted upside down covering a hitch opening and then have the ability to flip it up when you need to tow so that you can slide in your ball mount and tow. Which this is totally possible and is what this product was intended to do.

  • Availability of Hitch w/ Concealed Crossbar for 2006 Audi A6
  • All the hitches we offer for the 2006 Audi A6 are constructed in the same manner, with the receiver tube on the same plane as the crosstube. This means that the entire crosstube would be visible. If you'll only be using a hitch as a bike rack, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite # 24836, as it doesn't include a ball mount you won't need. If you'll be doing some light duty towing as well, you'd do better with the Hidden Hitch # 60238 which includes the ball mount. You'll also need the following...

  • Hitch Recommendations for 2011 Mercedes Benz ML350 BlueTec
  • The Curt Class III receiver hitch, part # C13102 would be the correct fit for your 2011 Mercedes-Benz ML350 BlueTec. I've confirmed with Cequent Performance Products that their Hidden Hitch # 87755 and Draw-Tite # 75376 are NOT fits for 2010 to Present BlueTec models.

  • How to Run Reverse Light Circuit to 7-Way on a 2011 Nissan Murano
  • You are going to need to track down the reverse light circuit of your 2011 Nissan Murano's taillight circuit, tap into it with a quick splice like the # 804C and then run wire to the center pin of the 7-way. I attached a video that will show you how it is done on a similar vehicle. You will need a circuit tester like part # 3808 to test the wires of your taillight circuits to find the correct one to use.

  • Replacement Hitch 5/8 Inch Hitch Pin
  • Are you speaking of a standard hitch pin to secure your ball mount into the receiver? A 2 inch Class III, IV or V receiver would use a 5/8 inch hitch pin like part # PC3. A stainless steel locking hitch pin is also available as part # 40107.

  • Hitch and Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Your 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe can be equipped with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II or a 2-inch Class III hitch receiver, but only the Class III type can be used with weight distribution. The hitch you referenced, Hidden Hitch # 87574, is rated for use with weight distribution systems and its tongue weight and trailer weight capacities do increase when a weight distribution system is used with it. All three of the Class III hitches offered for your Santa Fe will work only on the versions without...

For liability reasons we don't list torque specs for our hitches. Since we link the instructions straight from the manufacturer they would automatically update if the torque spec were to change at some point.

  • What Size Bolts Used With Hidden Hitch Class III # 87479 Trailer Hitch on 2009 Honda Odyssey
  • The Hidden Hitch Class III hitch you referred to, part # 87479 uses Class 8.8 M12x35mm bolts with a 1.25 thread pitch.

  • Can Sway Control Be Used with a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Mitsubishi Galant
  • Sway control cannot be used with a Class I trailer hitch such as # 60237 for your 2007 Mitsubishi Galant. The Class I hitches and ball mounts are not designed to be compatible with sway control. The best defense against sway is proper loading of the trailer. Heaviest items on the bottom, even side to side, with most of the weight directly above or slightly forward of the trailer axle. Also make sure the tongue weight is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. I have linked a help...
