Roadmaster XL Base PLate Kit Installation - 2011 Chevrolet Equniox

Today on this 2011 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to install part number 3160-1B from Roadmaster. This is the Roadmaster XL baseplate kit with removable arms. To install a baseplate we need to temporarily remove the front fascia or bumper-cover. Just underneath the hood there's a series of fasteners we have to remove. We have a plastic fastener right here. Take the flat screwdriver, there's a little slot where you can put it in, and pull out the center, and work it loose. The trim panel tool works just a little bit better.



Thule XB16 Snow Tire Chains Review - 2011 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to install part number TH01571245 from Thule. This is the Thule Standard Snow Tire Chain. A couple of things to know is that this puts a diamond pattern on the tire and it has a D shaped like link. For reference we're working with tire size of 225 by 65 by 17 inch rim. First off when you take your snow chains out of a container, you want to make sure they're untangled and they're ready to install. Now it's a good idea to try this like we're doing right now before you actually need it in the snow, so you get used to it when you're ready to use them. Now basically to install the snow chains, we've just got to slide this whole assembly behind the tire.



Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2011 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on this 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, were going to install part number RM-154 from Roadmaster. This is the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit.

Now, we dont need one of these ends because eventually, this is going to be ran to the end of the line towards the diode so we can go ahead and just remove one of these 4-pole ends. If youd like, it might be a good idea to leave a length on here if you want to replace the one in the front maybe eventually, but thats personal preference.
