Chevrolet Equinox Questions

  • I found an online copy of the owners manual for the 2014 Chevy Equinox from Chevy and have the towing information for you. The models with the 2.4 liter motor have a gross trailer weight capacity of 1,000 pounds if the trailer does not have brakes or 1,500 pounds if the trailer does have brakes. The gross combined weight rating, which is the most the vehicle and trailer can weigh when loaded with cargo, fuel, passengers, and any accessories is 5,787 pounds for front wheel drive...

  • In my research, I found that the towing capacity for models with the 2.4L 4 cylinder engine is 1500 lbs, while models equipped with the 3.0L 6 cylinder engine have a 3500 lb towing capacity. I've confirmed this information with the owner's manual.

  • Both the bike racks you mentioned are very similar, almost identical. The Pro Series rack is a bit heavier than the MaxxTow rack, and feels more substantial, like it's better put together. The Q-Slot can be used in Class I and II 1-1/4 inch receivers or 2 inch receiver. The MaxxTow rack works in Class II 1-1/4 inch receivers and 2 inch receivers. Both racks are pretty highly rated by our customers. Both racks are what I would consider entry level racks that are best for occasional...

  • The Swagman Chinook # S64683 and G10 # S64682 are similar but there are some key differences. The G10 uses 2 rails with 2 wheel cradles each so it theoretically is compatible with more bike styles. Other than that they operate the same way. The XTC # S64670 does not tilt down so it would not really be comparable to either of the above bike racks. Also, there is no guarantee that you would be able to open the rear hatch on the vehicle with the bikes loaded on either of the...

  • Your 2013 Chevrolet Equinox uses a type 921 backup light bulb. The Hopkins product you reviewed, part # HM20101VA, is a replacement for the type 3156 bulb. My contact at Hopkins advises that they do not offer an audible alarm replacement bulb for the 921 type. I also checked with two other suppliers of aftermarket lighting products, Putco and Optronics, and neither of these suppliers offers a 921 replacement bulb with alarm. However, we do offer the Custer Surface Mount...

  • If you are installing a 7-way and brake controller you will want to use a circuit breaker in-line when connecting the Black wire from the 7-way to the battery and in-line from the brake controller to the battery. The Black wire will draw 12 volt power. For the Black wire that connects from the rear of the 7-way to the battery it is recommended to use a 40 amp circuit breaker, part # PK54540. The Black wire running from the brake controller to the battery should also have...

  • Generally speaking you will want to have 3 inches from the top of your tire to the fender of your trailer to accommodate for suspension travel. Having a little more wouldn't hurt, but I wouldn't recommend any less than 3 inches. I attached a review video for this fender for you to check out as well.

  • The Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, # 3160-1B, is designed to fit your 2011 Chevy Equinox so that you can flat tow it behind your motorhome. Another option would be to use a tow dolly, # RM-2000-1. This tow dolly comes with electric brakes, safety cables, adjustable axle and ramps, and adjustable wheel nets. I have included a link to the installation details below. If you decide to use base plates, there are a couple more items you will need before you can safely tow the Equinox....

The bolt size is M12 CL8.8. I attached an install video and couple help links for cleaning weldnuts for you to check out as well.

  • You can use the TrailerMate Custom Tail Light Wiring Harness, # TM780072, when flat towing your 2013 Chevrolet Equinox. After doing some research on your vehicle, I have found that some models cannot be flat towed, especially those with the continuously variable transmission (CVT). These models must be towed using a tow dolly. Before you attempt to flat tow your Equinox, I recommend checking your owners manual for any flat towing restrictions or procedures. If you determine...

  • The best way to determine bearing size is to disassemble the old hubs and find the bearing number stamped on the old bearings. Remember which was the outer most bearing. With the old bearing numbers you can find out hub, spindle, race and seal. So hold onto those numbers. There are several pieces of line and hose in this kit, more than pictured. The longest piece of steel line is 15 feet. The longest rubber hose is 18-7/8 inches. Titan does not offer stainless discs or calipers....

  • To tow your 2012 Chevy Equinox your first priority would be to have a trailer hitch mounted to your RV that is capable of towing your vehicle. My research shows that the Equinox weighs approximately 4000 lbs, not including fluids and cargo, and that it is flat towable as is. You should also refer to your owners manual to confirm the flat towing procedures for you 2012 Chevy Equinox. The Reese Multi-Fit Motorhome Trailer Hitch, # 82200, may be a good choice if the total weight...

  • Depending on your rack and carrier, they maybe able to be used at the same time, but more than likely, one will interfere with the other. Keep in mind the shape of your bike rack may interfere with loading cargo on your carrier and the carrier may be in the way of the bikes hanging down. If the cargo carrier has sides or rails that are tall, they may prevent the bike rack from being installed. Additionally this adapter/extension has a tongue weight rating of 350 pounds. This...

  • The Draw-Tite # 5500 Brake Controller can certainly be installed on your vehicle, but the procedure for finding the stoplight signal on your 2012 Equinox is a bit different than on other vehicles. As you are sitting in the drivers seat, the BCM (Body Control Module) is located under the dash above where your left knee would be. The module (think of it as a junction box) will have 7 different wire connectors that plug into it. Look for the black connector (all the connectors...

  • The Hopkins Backup Sensor System, item # HM60100VA, is designed to detect items directly behind the vehicle and straight out. I spoke with my contact at Hopkins and he explained that the backup sensor would detect items at the ground for a distance of 5-1/2 feet, or so. Also the unit will not pickup items very near to the vehicle once the item is past where the sensor can detect the item. Say a box is laying on the ground 15 feet behind your vehicle. At a point where you...

  • The replacement u-bolt hardware kit that you referenced, part # SR05493, is a correct kit for the Explorer box (whether it is a Karrite or SportRack branded unit). The hardware kit's u-bolts will fit around crossbars that are as wide as 3-3/4-inches. By the way, your Sears Karrite rooftop cargo box was produced for Sears by Thule/SportRack, which are sister companies. For reference, please take a look at the linked photo which shows key dimensions of the u-bolts included in...

The Class II has the same gross trailer weight capacity but a tongue weight capacity of 300 pounds. Both hitches will install and look similar as you can see in the instructions and video links I have provided for each. Even though...

  • When carrying any cargo on the rear of your vehicle you will want a minimum of 12 inches clearance from the exhaust. It is a good idea to deflect the exhaust on your 2014 Chevrolet Equinox away from the carrier or the cargo in the carrier. I have attached a link to the turndown exhaust tips we offer. You will want to measure the diameter of the exhaust tip on your Equinox and then choose the size and length from the menus on the left of the attached page. The hitch I recommend...

  • If the lock is in the unlocked position you will first need to use a Yakima Change Key part # Y8007835 to remove the core by inserting it into the unlocked core and pulling the core out. Then you can replace the core with a Replacement SKS Lock Core # Y8771-A144. You will need Replacement Key part # Y8772-A144.

  • We do have wiring kits, that will work with your 2012 Chevrolet Equinox, that do not require the vehicle have a tow package.
