Buick Enclave Questions

  • The only difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13084 and the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13160, is the shape of the tubing. Curt Trailer Hitch # 13084 has a square-tube design while the Curt Hitch # 13160 has a round-tube design. The square-tube hitch will be more visible on the back of your Jeep while the round-tube hitch will be tucked up just a little more. The round-tube hitch is designed to be a more sleek design. Both the Curt Hitch # 13084 and # 13160 have the same...

  • Yes, for your 2014 Buick Enclave and your Falcon 2 tow bar you will need base plates # 523149-1. I have linked the instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you. There are a few other things needed to flat tow a vehicle if you do not already have them: safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting there are a few options. If you will not...

  • A magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A or a kit that fits in the hatch gap like # EZT20B would definitely work since they bypass the factory wiring. These kits are ideal if you will not be towing the vehicle very often. A more permanent alternative if you will be towing the Enclave frequently and that still bypasses the vehicle wiring is a bulb and socket kit, # RM-155. The only things to think about with this kit are the space needed for installation and the drilling required. You...

  • The first thing you will need to do to install a complete 7-Way trailer wiring harness on a 2012 Buick Enclave without factory tow package wiring, is install a 4-Way trailer wiring harness, part # 118450, if the vehicle does not already have a working 4-Way connector. Next, you will need to install an electric brake controller installation kit, # ETBC7, to complete the wiring. Installing this kit will require you to hard wire the 12 volt power wire, brake controller output,...

  • For your 50-amp fuse you can use Blue Ox ByPass Switch # BX88274 and for your 15-amp mini fuse Blue Ox # BX88272. The Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch # RM76514 that you referenced does provide 2-fuse bypass capability but its amperage rating for both is 20-amps.

  • I checked the owners manual for a 2013 Buick Enclave and you will need to remove the 15 amp OnStar and ECM fuse. These are in the battery compartment behind the passenger seat on the floor. You will also need to remove the 50 amp BATT1 fuse from the underhood fuse block. For your 50-amp fuse you can use Blue Ox ByPass Switch # BX88274 and for your 15-amp mini fuse Blue Ox # BX88272. What this will do is allow you to deactivate these circuits with just a switch instead...

  • There are numerous options for tire chains for the 2014 Buick Enclave with 255/60-19 tires. I have included a link to the right with all the options for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual first for any specific requirements or recommendations on the use of chains on your vehicle. Out of the options, if you will not be using chains very often I recommend cables # PW2028C that you referenced. Cables are great for infrequent use. You will also want some rubber adjusters...

  • I generally prefer the Blue Ox base plates and tow bars, as they are typically less complicated to use with fewer parts. The correct base plate for your vehicle would be part # BX1708, and the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365 would be my recommendation for a tow bar. The tow bar includes safety cables. You will also need a lighting solution so that the Enclave has taillights that work in tandem with those of the RV. There are three main types of systems to choose from. You...

  • We do have trailer hitches and wiring for your 2016 Buick Enclave. A popular option is Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87435. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. I have linked a video showing an example installation of the hitch for you. For wiring you can use # 118270 to add a 4-Way flat trailer connector at the back of the vehicle. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation of the wiring as well. Since it sounds like you will be...

  • Sounds like you are looking for a trunk mounted bike rack. A trunk mounted bike rack will install at the rear of a vehicle and does not require a trailer hitch. I recommend the Yakima Fullback trunk rack part # Y02633 because we recently asked our install and demo team to pick their favorite trunk rack based on performance and ease of install/use and they all picked this trunk rack. You will really like this rack. The four easily adjustable straps will make it easier to install...

  • On any vehicle that has exhaust that exits straight out the back and not out the side or towards the ground could potentially damage a trailer hitch mounted item and its contents. I believe I have a great solution for you though. To get enough distance from the exhaust you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210 and that will get you plenty far from the exhaust. For a carrier, if using the multipurpose ball mount, you can use any carrier that fits a 2 inch receiver. The...

  • When determining fit of a given bike rack on a particular vehicle, it is important to determine the distance from the hitch pin hole of the installed hitch to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper (see photo.) We have completed installs of the Draw-Tite # 75528, Hidden Hitch # 87435 and Curt # 13424 Class III receiver hitches on 2010 and 2012 Buick Enclave models. We have found that once the hitch is installed, this distance can vary from 3-3/4 inches to 5-1/4 inches...

  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and the Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Receiver, #13424, fits the 2014, as well as the 2015 Buick Enclave. The wiring harness that you will need for your Enclave is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # C56202.

  • Once installed, the front face of the receiver will extend a bit too far rearward in order for the fascia door to be reinstalled. From what I have been able to determine in my research, the other fascia door you mentioned (with the hump in it) can be obtained from your Buick dealer, but it is intended to work with the OEM hitch because the aftermarket hitch receiver tubes extend a bit further rearward. So, you can install an aftermarket hitch and leave off the fascia door,...

  • I spoke with my contacts at Curt, Draw-Tite, and Hidden Hitch and trailer hitch # 13424, # 75528 and # 87435 will not allow the rear fascia door to be replaced after hitch installation on a 2010 Buick Enclave. What you can do to hide the hitch opening for any of the trailer hitches is to use a hitch cover. We have numerous hitch covers available and I have included a link to them below. You will need one that is compatible with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. We have everything...

  • How you'll proceed will depend on if the trailer has brakes or not. Usually, the fact that a trailer uses a 7-way indicates that the trailer has brakes but that's not always the case. If the trailer doesn't have brakes, you'll first install the # 118450. This provides easy access to the taillight circuits without needing to cut and splice into any wiring. You'll then install the # 37185 adapter that will convert the 4-pole to a 7-way connector. The adapter will plug directly...

  • For your 2012 Enclave, I would recommend the Hidden Hitch Class III Receiver, part # 87435. We do indeed sell the hitch, you can see it by clicking the provided link. The hitch would work very well with the Thule Parkway # TH956 you referenced, but I would like you to also take a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR. The Hitching Post Pro is very similar to the Parkway, but it offers additional features like folding arms that make storing the rack easier as...

  • Flat towing a vehicle behind an RV requires 5 basic components: 1) tow bar, 2) safety cables, 3) wiring kit and 4) base plates and 5) a braking system for the towed vehicle. The linked articles will give you good general background on each of these. I checked with my technical contact at Roadmaster and they do offer base plate kit # 523149-1 which fits Buick Enclave models (without brushguards) up through the 2016 model year. I suggest their Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520,...

This means the picture is not the exact parts you will get with the kit you will need, it is just a photo of typical hitch mounting hardware.

With that information we will send you the same hardware that you would have received when you would have initially purchased that...
