Expert Answers about Valley

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brake and Turn Signal Lights not Working, Towed by Ford F-350 Super Duty
  • If the problem is on the trailer side, you may need to check under the hood to determine if there is a fuse or relay missing or not working. You can use the vehicle owners manual to find the towing related fuses and relays. The load from the trailer may be sufficient enough power draw to shut down the tow package wiring on the truck if those fuses/relays are not in place. You can also check to make sure that the trailer tail lights are properly grounded to a clean and corrosion free...

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Solutions for a 2011 Ford F-150 Super Crew with a 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • There is a way to pull a fifth wheel trailer with a truck bed that is shorter than 6 feet like your 2011 Ford F-150 Super Crew. The clearance solution for trucks with such short beds is to install a sidewinder on the pin box of your trailer. Once installed you would have enough clearance to pull a fifth wheel trailer and make sharp turns. However, you will still need to plug some measurements in to a formula to be absolutely certain. To start, the center of the hitch pin jaws will...

  • Can the Amount of Slack around the King Pin be Adjusted with Valley 16K Double Pivot Fifth Wheel
  • I am not sure I understand what you are looking to do. The king pin is fixed. It is welded to the pin box on the trailer and cannot be adjusted. Are you talking about the king pin moving around inside the locked jaw of the fifth wheel head?

  • Could I Pull a 21 ft Trail Lite Fifth Wheel Trailer with my 2004 Toyota Tundra Short Bed Step Side
  • There is possibly a way to pull a fifth wheel trailer with your 2004 Toyota Tundra, but you cannot install a fifth wheel hitch in your truck. I spoke with our installer, who has installed many fifth wheel hitches, and he told me that the reason you can not put a fifth wheel hitch in a 2004 Toyota Tundra with a step side bed is that the bed rails are too narrow to allow a fifth wheel to fit between. If you installed a Curt Gooseneck for the Toyota Tundra, 2004, part # C625-665, in...

  • Link to Instructions and Hitching Procedures for a Valley 16K Glider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • I would be happy to provide with a manual for a Valley 16K Glider 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch, # V70480. I have included a link for you. Page 3 is the beginning of the trailer hook up procedures. I will also add the procedures below: Before connecting trailer to the hitch, the safety pin must be removed from the locking bracket and handle. Be sure that the handle has moved completely inward and the jaw is closed. If handle is out, jaw is open. To close, push the handle rearward and inward....

  • Exhaust Hanger Touching Hitch and Transferring Vibration and Noise through a 2010 Mercury Mariner
  • I am looking at the install pictures and if I am reading things correctly, the steel hanger welded to the exhaust pipe is touching the hitch. This in turn sends exhaust vibrations into the vehicle and that is what you are hearing. You have a few options of how this can be corrected. The first is what we do here in our shops, and that is simply re-bending the hanger so that things do not make contact. The hangers are not always welded on the same way at the factory and some times they...

  • Is The Valley Fifth Wheel, # V70480, And # 70487, The Same Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • The Valley Fifth Wheel, # V70480, and the model # V70487, are the same Valley 16K Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch with Glider. The difference is the # V70487 includes the installation rails and brackets. We do not use the part # V70487 in our system. The Valley Fifth Wheel Installation Kit, # V55340R, would be the part for the installation rails and brackets on your 2008 Dodge Ram.

  • Will the Reese Friction Sway Control Bar fit on the Valley Clamp On Trailer Sway Control Ball Kit
  • I apologize for the delayed response, I was waiting for us to get one of the Valley Clamp On Trailer Sway Control Ball kits in our warehouse so I could test them. Yes the Valley Ball kit will fit the Reese Sway control bar, part # 83660. Please note, in the past the paint on the Ball was a bit thick and needed to be partially sanded. It does not appear to be the case any more. Additionally, the Reese 83660 does include a ball plate that is screwed into the trailer frame. If you do not...

  • What is Included When Calculating Trailer Tongue Weight, 2004 Ford F-150 Lariet 4x4 Supercrew
  • To calculate tongue weight, you would include everything on and in the trailer, in the bed of the truck, as well as the trailer loaded and ready to tow. Tongue weight should be 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So with everything loaded on the trailer, including the fuel tanks, battery, cargo, and anything else that is the weight you need to go by. If it totals out to be 8,000 pounds, the tongue weight could potentially be as low as 800 pounds or as high as 1,200 pounds. To...

  • Weight Distribution Hitch Recommendation for a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe Front Wheel Drive
  • I pulled up the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe owner manual online and found that you are correct, there is no mention of hitch weight capacities or recommendations for use of a weight distribution system. I did find that the 2010 Santa Fe with 3.5 liter engine is capable of towing 3,500 lbs maximum and that with the 2.4 liter engine, 2,000 lbs is the maximum. You will need to consult your Hyundai dealer or the manufacturer to determine if the hitch that is on your vehicle and the vehicle frame...

  • Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500

  • What 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches Fit the Factory Underbed Mounting System on a 2011 Ford F-250
  • On the 2011 Ford F-250/F-350 Super Duty with the factory installed 5th wheel trailer hitch installation kit, the only compatible 5th wheel trailer hitches are the Reese Elite Series, like # RP30142, or, a Reese Signature Series hitch. They no longer make the Signature Series hitch but if you had one, you would also need an adapter kit, # RP58419. I have included a link to our FAQ article on the 2011 Ford Trucks and the underbed 5th wheel trailer hitch mounting system for reference.

  • What Fifth Wheel Hitch Is Needed For A 2006 Nissan Titan Crew Cab With A 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • On your 2006 Nissan Titan Crew Cab with a 5-1/2 foot bed you will need to use a standard hitch with a Sidewinder. The Sidewinder will relocate the pivot point from where the king pin locks into the hitch 22 inches to the rear, to the point where the pin box attaches to the trailer. The Sidewinder is specific to the part number on your existing fifth wheel pin box, so you will need that part number to select the correct model Sidewinder. You will also need to choose a fifth wheel hitch whose...

  • Can a 5th Wheel Slider be Used to Tow a Trailer in the Rear Maneuvering Postion
  • The purpose of a slider is to make it easier to maneuver a trailer into parking situations, when the vehicle is at a very low speed. A slider is not to be used in the rearward position while towing the trailer. The slider was not designed for that and it would be unsafe to use it that way. The weight of your trailer would be too far back on your truck bed to allow you to be able to safely maneuver and brake your trailer in the maneuver position. I attached an FAQ article on fifth-wheel...

  • Parts Needed to Install an Electric Trailer Brake Controller on a 2009 Chevy Traverse
  • The 7-Way RV style trailer connector is more common than a 6-Way. The 6-Way will not have a reverse light/accessory circuit pin. They both will have stop, tail, turn, 12 volt, brakes, and ground circuits. I recommend a 7-Way since it is the more common connector. But if the trailer has a 6-Way connector, then it would be better to go with a 6-Way on the vehicle as well. In order to install a brake controller on your 2009 Chevy Traverse, there are a few parts you will need. If the vehicle...

  • Recommended Gooseneck to Fifth Wheel Adapter for 2008 Ford F250
  • If the Pin Box on the fifth wheel is a Lippert 1621 or 1716, and this is the only truck you will use to pull the fifth wheel, the Reese Goosebox is a great solution. It will permanently replace your existing Lippert 1621 or 1716 pin box. For the Lippert 1621, use part # RP94622 or for the Lippert 1716, use part # RP94622-61301. If you wish to leave your existing pin box in place, the Andersen Ultimate 5th Wheel Connection, part # AM3225 is an innovative solution. The system is relatively...

  • Troubleshooting a 2005 Nissan Armada Trailer Turn Signals Not Functioning
  • It sounds like you have isolated the problem to being on your 2005 Nissan Armada. The relays could be bad like you suggested, which you could try replacing them to see if that helps. Another possible solution would be a bad ground. You might check the condition of the ground circuit to make sure it is attached to a clean metal surface. We sell the relays, you would want Curt Relay Kit # C57000. The blue relays are the turn signal relays so it would make sense if replacing them would...

The easiest way to find all the fuse and relay locations is to use the vehicle owners manual. In the index you will look up fuses and then go to the appropriate pages and it will list them all out and their locations for you so you can check to make sure everything is there.

  • Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for a 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
  • The correct trailer wiring kit you would want for your 2009 Subaru Impreza WRX STI is the Curt Wiring Harness part # C56111. The Valley wiring harness has been discontinued and is not longer available. For a hitch I would recommend the Hidden Hitch part # 60303, this comes with a ball mount and a pin and clip, for a hitch ball I would recommend the part # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch ball or part # 19258 for a 2 inch ball.
