Yakima PowderHound Ski and Snowboard Carrier Review - 2007 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban we're going to test-fit the Yakima PowderHound Roof-Mounted Locking Ski and Snowboard Carrier, part number Y03081. One thing to note about this rack here is that you notice how we have an angle going up. This has a provision built into the kit where you can ramp it up like a inaudible 00:00:18 to give you some extra room for your bindings. Now in this case, you probably didn't need them, but if you have ski bindings that are really tall and might hit your roof, then this is a good option to have installed on your vehicle. Also, you can put a snowboard AND some skis on there, depending on the size of your equipment. It does come with a couple keys; there's a lock on each half of the ski carrier to secure your items. If you notice, we take a closer look at the rubber part on our equipment. It gets a nice grip on it yet it cushions it and also keeps it from moving around. Again, this is intended to haul two snowboards or four sets of skis. Next we're going to take a few moments and show you how we install this on the roof rack.



Pilot Bully Front Truck Floor Liners Review - 2007 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on this 2007 Chevrolet Suburban we're going to show you the Bully Custom Truck Floor Liners for the front row, part number FM-309. Before you put them into your vehicle, you'll make sure you'll remove any preexisting mats or floor liners. You want to get these guys out of the way and go straight to the factory carpet. We'll go ahead and put it into place. It lies there. You can see it goes up under behind the pedal.



Husky WeatherBeater Cargo Liner Review - 2007 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on this 2007 Chevrolet Suburban we're going to review and install the Husky Liners WeatherBeater Custom Cargo Liner, in tan, part number HL28263. This is also available in black as part number HL28261, and gray as part number HL28262. There's not much to really installing our floor liner except for the fact that you want to remember you want to get down to the original carpet, and remove any other floor liners and mats. These are designed to work with the factory carpeting. We'll just take it and slide it into place, it's a good idea to let it sit outside in sunlight to help unroll when you take it out of the box. Let's take a look how it fits. First off, you can see the kind of high perimeter side here, maybe about 2" or so, and it goes all the way around.



Longview Custom Towing Mirrors Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Longview Original Custom Towing Mirrors. These are slide-on mirrors, and they're sold as a pair. Part No. is CTM1600. Now let's take a look at the extended field of view we we're talking about. I'm pretty much directly behind the mirror here on the driver's side.



K-Source Custom Towing Mirrors Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on our 2013 Chevrolet Suburban, we're going to take a look and show you how to install the K-Source Slip-on Towing Mirrors, part number KS80900. Let's take a look at that field of view extension that we're going to get. Right now I'm pretty much directly behind the car, just off set to the driver's side a little bit. You can see me plainly in our factory mirror. As I begin to step over, you can still pick me up pretty well. This is about where that's going to start to run out. As I continue to step over, now we're going to switch over to the towing mirror.



CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors Installation - 2013 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on our 2013 Chevrolet Suburban, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Cipa Custom Towing Mirrors. These are slip on for the driver and passenger side, part number is CM10900. For just the driver side, part number is 10901 and for just the passenger side, part number is 10902. Let's take a look at what the towing mirrors are going to help us with. As I stand right here, at the back corner of the vehicle, I'm about 20' from it, you can see me well. That's not the issue. As we're heading down the road, we expect that.



Rola Roof Cargo Carrier Review - 2013 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on our 2013 Chevrolet Suburban, we're doing a test-fit of the ROLA Roof Mounted Cargo Basket that part number is 59504. The dimensions are 52 by 40 and half by 6 deep and it has a weight capacity of 130 pounds. Now I suggest that you check your owners manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that much weight on its roof. Now because this vehicle is so high, I'm going to step up on my tire to do this last side for you. I've already got the other three brackets all in place and strapped down. I got my foot in place. Great thing about these plastic feet, they can move to the different bars, they can also move in and out as well to fit different crossbar spreads.





Chevrolet Suburban Questions

  • The Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 would be an excellent choice to be used in conjunction with towing your current pop up trailer and a hitch mounted bike rack that has a carrying capacity of 5 bikes. The # D210 is compatible with and an existing 2 inch hitch and provides a 2 inch receiver for accessory use. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 750 pounds total, and a receiver capacity of 350 pounds. Therefore the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot...

  • I contacted Venture Trailers Inc. and found that the reason they do not recommend the use of a weight distribution system is because most weight distribution systems are not recommended for trailers with surge brakes because they do not allow the coupler to push into the coupler housing and engaging the brakes. Also due to the fact that they do apply additional stress on the tongue of the trailer like you said and this can be particularly harmful to aluminum frame trailers. There...

  • I did some research on the 2004 Suburban models, and I was not able to find any specific weight distribution capacity for you. Typically, the vehicle towing capacity both with and without weight distribution will be listed in the vehicle manual, or this would also be something on which you could contact the dealer. We have an informational article, see link, that explains many of the factors to be considered when using and selecting a weight distribution system. The hitches...

  • The size seal you will need will depend on the part number of your inner bearing. If the outer bearing part number is L44649 and the inner bearing part number is also L44649, then you will use a TruRyde Seals, # RG06-020. If the outer bearing part number is L44649 and the inner bearing part number is L68149, then it will be TruRyde Seals, # RG06-050. The size grease cap you will need is 1.986 inches. For the standard spindle you would use the TruRyde Grease Caps,...

  • The wire color code on the Bargman 7-Way Molded Trailer End Connector, part # 50-67-008, is White - Ground Red - Left Turn and Brake Brown - Right Turn and Brake Green - Tail Lights Blue - Electric Brakes Black - 12v power Yellow - Auxiliary/Reverse Lights I would recommend to use a circuit tester like the Quickee Tester, part # 3808, and test the wires on your Viking pop-up camper for function. Once you know what function each wire carries, you will be able to...

  • You will need to use a circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed, to test the wires exiting the trailer to figure out the wiring configuration with the trailer hooked up to the truck and the running lights on. You will probably find that you have tail light power on one of the green wires and no power on any of the other wires. In this case you would wire the two green wires to the power wire coming from the clearance light. You would then need to wire the two white wires coming...

  • Since your axle is mounted on top of the leaf spring you will want between 2 and 2-1/2 inches between the top of the axle and the trailer frame. You will also want 3 inches of clearance between the top of the tire and the fender. Check out the FAQ article on trailer suspension I attached also.

  • You are limited by the lowest rated factor in your towing system. In your case, the limiting factor is your hitch, which is rated for 5,000lbs. Your hitch does not have a high enough capacity rating to tow your camper safely. If the vehicle tow capacity is indeed 7000 lbs, I would recommend a weight distribution system, which would raise the towing capacity on the hitch to 10,000 lbs and also reduce sway when towing your camper. You can view available weight distribution systems...

  • The wiring will already be run on your 2000 Chevy Silverado. There will be 1 of 2 wiring situations on your truck. The wiring for the 7-Way will be located above the spare tire. If it is just bare wires with no plug, you will need to hard wire one in. The harness we have for this wiring situation is Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector Socket w/ Wiring Harness and Mounting Bracket, # PK11898. If your truck has a plug, then you will need to use a connector like the Replacement...

  • GM did not start using the port under the dash until the 1999 model year. You will need to hardwire the controller into the existing vehicle wiring. Depending on what the tow package on your vehicle included, some of the wiring might be in place. Does the Suburban already have a trailer connector? If so, is it a 4-pole or a 7-Way? GM typically ran a blue and an orange wire from the rear of the vehicle up to the engine bay that terminates under the brake booster. In a 12...

  • Chevy used to have a plug in port for a brake controller harness for trucks and full size SUVs but they stopped doing that several years ago (2006 was the last year). Now there should be a bundle of wires tucked up underneath the dash held together with a tag. The tag also lists the functions of the wires on it. You will just need to splice the brake controller wires to the tow package wires by functions. On the controller, the white wire is ground, black is 12 volt power,...

  • The 2008 Suburban no longer has the quick tow package port underneath the dashboard. All the necessary wires are run (as long as the Suburban has the factory installed tow package) and are blunt cut under the dash. You will need to hardwire the Prodigy wires to these wires. With the introduction of the new body style trucks and SUVS in 2007 the new GM vehicles no longer have these wires in a neat plug. The tow package wiring is located under the dash, above where your left...

  • We have numerous suspension enhancement components available for a 2007 Chevy Suburban, see link. If you are looking for Firestone air helper springs, you can use # F4108. I have included a link to the installation instructions. I have also included some links to FAQ articles covering Firestone products. You can inflate the springs using an air compressor like you might find at a gas station, but you can also add a kit with an on-board compressor so you never have to leave...

  • PC rated means that the light is viewable from a 90 degree angle. Most other lights are considered to be viewable from a 45 degree angle. On the Optronics Trailer Lights, # AL91AB, this light will function as both a clearance and side marker light if mounted at a 45 degree angle. Just mounting the light on the side of your over 80 inch wide trailer will not allow it to be both a clearance and side marker light, because the light will not be seen at the front or back of the...

  • Your 1999 Chevrolet Suburban does not have a port under the dash to connect a brake controller harness. You will need to hardwire the Prodigy controller, item # 90185, with brake controller 7 and 4-way installation kit, item # ETBC7, or a 6 and 4-way installation kit, item # ETBC6, depending on the connector you need for your trailer. These kits come with everything needed to install the brake controller and wiring from scratch as long as you have a 4-way connector installed...

  • It sounds like the left side may have a bad ground in the system or a loose ground. I would check over the complete wiring system and make sure all grounds have a good metal contact and no rust. Also check the wires to make sure the protective coating is not worn and that there are no bare wires exposed. The connector from the vehicle to the trailer could also be corroded, you will want to check inside the connector to make sure. If there is not corrosion, it would...

  • I recommend a system rated for 200 to 600 pounds tongue weight like # 49568. But, if the Coleman camper has items mounted on the front of the frame, you may need to use chain hangers, # RP58305, that bolt through the frame, rather than the brackets that fit on top of the frame. I have linked some instructions for you. If you go with the Pro series kit, you would just need to use a properly sized ball like # A-90 for a 2 inch or # 19286 for a 2-5/16 inch. I have linked our FAQ...

  • The 2007 Suburban does not require a wiring adapter. The tow package wiring is easily accessible and would wire directly to the brake controller. The wiring is located above the emergency brake pedal, and is taped to a wiring harness. Look for a white tag hanging off of the wiring. The four wires are red, dark blue, light blue and white. The red tow package wire connects to the black wire on the controller, the dark blue tow package wire connects to the blue brake controller wire,...

  • Although your friends Suburban might be equipped with the factory tow package, the package did not include a brake controller like it sometimes does in later models. A controller will need to be installed. Not to worry, though. Installing a controller will be simple. If he does not already have a controller, I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. The wiring adapter, part # 3025-P will also be needed. One end of the adapter would plug into the rear of the P2,...
