Chevrolet Suburban Questions

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.

  • 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...

  • If your owners manual specifies tire chains only on the rear of your 2012 Chevrolet Suburban, then I would also recommend to use tire chains only in the rear. Sometimes the reason the manufacturer does not recommend tire chains on a vehicle is because of clearance, but it also could be for other reasons. Both of the snow tire chains and snow tire cables will work great in snow conditions. The difference is the snow chains will give you better grip in more ice conditions because...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Mid-way through the 2007 model year, GM quit using brake controller ports. They now use a loose bundle of 4 or 5 wires underneath the dash; red, dark blue, light blue, white, and sometimes orange/brown. I have included links to a help page and a video of a brake controller install on a 2008 GMC Sierra. It should be pretty similar to your 2010 Suburban. The wire bundle usually has a white tag on it. If you have a Tekonsha brake controller with the quick connector, you would...

  • No worries, I can help you out with this issue. It is a common question, a varying load. There are weight distribution systems that have a tongue weight capacity range. The widest range is 600 to 1,200 pounds. There is also an 800 to 1,500 pound system. Considering that you can potentially have 1,500 pounds tongue weight you will need a system that goes at least that high. There is a Blue Ox system, # BXW1500, that is rated for up to 1,500 pounds tongue weight and requires...

  • 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...

  • Blue Ox lists base plates # BX1682 for your 2003 Chevy Suburban 1500. Please consult the vehicle owners manual prior to towing it for specific information on towing the vehicle. Given the size of the vehicle I recommend the Aventa tow bar, # BX7445. It is rated at 10,000 pounds and does include safety cables so you will not have to get any extra cables. For permanent lighting Blue Ox recommends a bulb and socket kit # BX8869. The bulb and socket kit will bypass the vehicle...

  • The Metric equivalent of the G78-15 load range C trailer tire is a 205/75-15 tire. The 205/75-15 tire is not available in load range D, so you will have to stay with the load range C that you currently have. I would recommend going with a radial tire, for a better ride and increased performance and longevity. You should not experience any more bulge with a radial tire than you do with a bias ply tire so your should not have any clearance concerns as long as you stay within...

  • 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 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,...

  • 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.

  • Yes, there is a port under the dash of your 2015 Chevy Suburban that will allow for a painless installation of a brake controller that won't require splicing. The harness to go along with the Curt Brake Controller part # C51120 that you referenced is the part # C51452. If you went with our most popular brake controller, the P2 part # 90885 you would only need the harness part # 3016. See the install video I attached.
