Buick Enclave Questions

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • The Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier # TH665C that you referenced should work very well on your 2012 Buick Enclave as long as you have a hitch installed on your vehicle. If you do not have a hitch I would recommend you go with a Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75528. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening that would work very well for you. We found then when this hitch is installed there is a distance of 5 inches from the center of the hitch...

  • 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...

  • Between the Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Bike Carrier, # TH934XTR and the Thule Parkway 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, # TH957, the rack that would best accommodate the various bikes and frame sizes you have is the Hitching Post Pro. However, you would probably still need to use an adapter, # TH982XT for the alternative frame bikes (the woman and girls bikes). Another option is the Softride Element Parallelogram Tilting 4 Bike Rack, # SR26248. This rack has adjustable arms...

  • When folded, the Surco Folding Cargo Carrier has a distance of 5 inches from the hitch pin hole to the closest portion of the carrier. To determine if it will work with your hitch, you will need to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole in the receiver on your hitch to the furthest point of the rear bumper. If this distance is less than 5 inches, the carrier will fold. In fact, I would probably want to allow at least 3/4 of an inch for safety.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • The Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192, can be used to tow a trailer with the bottom receiver while carrying a bike rack in the top receiver. However, you will not be able to use it with weight distribution. There is another option. Since you have a pop up camper you could use the Pop Up Camper Roof Mount 4 Bike Rack - Swagman Pop-Up Mighty Rack # S80550. You install this rack right on top of your pop up camper. You will not have to worry about the tongue weight...

  • The Thule Vertex 5 Bike Rack # TH9030XT that you referenced would make an excellent choice for you to carry your 5 bikes. This rack has arcing arms that allow for faster and easier loading, more space between the bikes and puts them at different heights allowing the pedals and handlebars to be at different heights which will reduce contact between the bikes. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out. For childrens bikes we recommend you use a Thule Bike...

  • 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...

  • You are correct about the purpose of the brake light switch. Its purpose is to provide verification that the brakes on your dinghy are being applied (as well as released) when needed. If the supplementary braking system you are using is not retracting properly, the tires and brakes on the dinghy could become prematurely worn or damaged.

  • While I would recommend you use new hardware for the new vehicle, after speaking with my contact at Roadmaster, I have found the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit # 523149-1 you used for your 2007 Saturn Outlook will work on your 2013 Buick Enclave. I have included links to our FAQ pages on tow bar wiring and what wiring kits are best for you. I have also included a link to a video showing the installation of this product on a 2009 Buick Enclave. While it is not the same model as...

  • According to Thule, the Force XXL Cargo Box, # TH626, will fit on your 2013 Buick Enclave with the factory roof rack, but due to the size of the cargo box, it will interfere with your ability to fully open your rear hatch. The largest Thule cargo box that will fit on your Enclave without interfering with your rear hatch are their XL cargo boxes like the Force XL, # TH625. In addition to the cargo box, I recommend picking up the Thule Step Up Wheel Step, # TH232. This will...

  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. If your loaded tongue...
