Chevrolet Colorado Questions

  • Your salesman is correct in that a weight distribution system will, in most cases, allow a vehicle to tow additional weight, but the amount of additional weight is not a static number and is vehicle specific. You should check your owners manual, or the vehicle dealer, for hitch specifications for the Max Gross trailer weight allowable when using a weight distributing hitch. I checked the online owners manual for a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. If this is the the vehicle you will...

  • The 6-Way square trailer connector is not used by a lot of trailer manufacturers. A lot of Jayco trailers may have them but mostly you come across the 4-Way flat, like what you have on your trailer, and the 7-Way blade for RV applications. What I recommend is to convert the 6-Pole on the Monaco to a 4-Way. You can do this very easily by removing the 6-Way plug, and then testing the wires for function using a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed before installing them in a new...

  • The steering wheel should lock up if in the lock position though you might be able to move it some. It seems pointless to have a lock position that doesn't actually lock the steering! GM was the first to include steering lock on vehicles so it seems odd that they would be the ones to not include it on one of their vehicles (2015 Chevy Colorado). If you didn't disconnect the battery to flat tow the vehicle as stated in the owners manual it will drain the battery. The trade...

  • The correct replacement motor is part # LG-142178, and the Replacement Aluminum Gearbox, # LG-179015. The correct replacement switch is the part # LG-145236.

  • Since you do not need the trailer brake or 12 volt charging functions when towing your pop-up, you would be able to cut off the 6-Way square connector currently on your Viking Pop-up and use a 4-Pole Trailer End Connector, item # 18004, to connect to the 4-Way connector on your 2006 Colorado. I would recommend that you use 7-Way RV connectors, to upgrade your vehicle and trailer wiring for ease of use and to have more universal connectors for towing other trailers. The most...

  • The Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 56094 is not designed to fit your 2016 Colorado, but I do have a solution for you. I recommend the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Connector, part # HM11141164. This harness simply plugs into the vehicle wiring located behind the tail lights on your Colorado. You will need to run the hot lead wire to the positive battery post to complete the installation. When working with electrical connectors...

  • A plug-in brake controller wiring harness is not available for the 2005 Chevy Colorado. The vehicle requires a hardwire method to install a brake controller using a 4-Way trailer connector, if needed, # 118301, and a 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. If your truck already has a factory installed 7-Way, you will still need to do some hardwiring. You will need brake controller installation kit # 5506. With the included wire, you will connect the white wire in the install...

  • When selecting a weight distribution system, you want to use a system that has a tongue weight capacity that falls between 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight when it is fully loaded and ready to be towed. I would recommend the Reese Weight Distribution, part RP66086, which has a range between 200 and 600 lbs of tongue weight. Part # RP66086 also features dual-cam sway control, which acts to prevent trailer sway before it starts. The Reese # RP66086 comes with everything...

  • I'm assuming that you're speaking of the 4-stranded yellow, green, brown and white wire. One set is for connecting the new taillight bulbs you'll be inserting into the taillight assemblies of the vehicle. You'd cut off one of the 4-pole connectors and wire it to the bulb assemblies. That wiring harness would run under the vehicle up to the front, being sure to avoid anything hot like exhaust components or anything that's moving like steering or suspension components. The wiring...

  • The Roadmaster EZ4 Base plate kit part # RM-523182-4 that you referenced is a fit for your 2015 Chevy Colorado and would work great with your Sterling All-Terrain Tow Bar # RM-576 that you referenced. The quick disconnect crossbar of your tow bar would attach easily to the removable arms of the EZ4 base plate kit. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to...

  • It sounds like your trailer brakes are sticking, but I doubt the problem is the brake controller. However, you can test this by applying the brakes like you normally do while coming to a stop. Once the trailer and vehicle stop get out and unplug your trailer connector. If the brakes release right then that would indicate that the controller is the problem. If not, get back in the truck and see if they release once you take off like they had been doing. If so, then the problem...

  • As long as the stake pocket is open under the bed rail for a 1-15/16 inch wide x 2 inch long plate, the pop up truck bed tie down, # WTD-810, should work well for you. These are a retractable tie-down anchor that would fit your stake pockets and work well. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • The trailer connector # 20119 would fit if the truck originally came with a factory 7-Way wiring harness. Since your truck did not, you will need to hardwire in a 7-Way using # ETBC7. I have included some links that explain the ETBC7 installation for you to view.

  • The Blue Ox Patriot part # BRK2012 has an inertia sensor built into it so that when it senses you are slowing your tow vehicle down it will apply the correct amount of braking power to towed vehicle. The remote is there to allow you to fine tune the aggressiveness of the braking and/or manually apply the brakes of the towed vehicle if needed, but for normal braking once you get the unit set up you would not need to mess with the remote. I attached an install video for you...

  • The 2008 Chevrolet Colorado will only have the wiring for a brake controller if your vehicle came with a factory 7-Way connector on the rear of your truck. To install a brake controller on your Colorado with a 4-Way you will need to hardwire the brake controller using the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. This kit will have a 7 and 4 Way connector that plugs into your existing 4-Way and all of the wiring and circuit breakers needed to install the connector...

  • Hopkins trailer wiring harness # HM11141164 is the trailer wiring option for a 2016 Chevy Colorado that did not come with a factory trailer connector. I have linked a video of this wiring harness for you. If you want to add a 7-Way as well then you would first install the above harness and then add # ETBC7.

  • For your 2015 Chevy Colorado the one tent that is recommended is # RL110770. It is designed for compact trucks but with 6 foot beds. Since your bed is just over 5 feet this tent may not be the best fit. Rightline also makes tent # RL110765 which is designed for mid-size trucks with 5 foot, 3 inch beds. Trucks in this category include the Tacoma and Frontier. I want to say that the new Colorados are comparable in size and this tent should work. There are other sources that...
