Thule Archway Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, we're doing a test fit of the Thule Archway XT trunk-mount 2-bike rack. That part number is TH9009XT. Now we already have our bike secured down. We've got 2 cradles in place with 3 straps, 2 on our frame here, and 1 as our anti-sway in the back. We're going to start by releasing those. Then we can pull our bike off and set it off to the side. With that out of the way, we'll start off with some measurements.

We're first going to show you how we do that. We've got two cradles in place with three straps, two on our frame here, and one as our anti-sway in the back. We're going to start by releasing those. We can remove our bike, set it off to the side and we'll take a few measurements. Our first one is going to be overall what we're adding to our vehicle with our arms hanging out.



WeatherTech Rear Floor Liner Review - 2011 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Traverse, we'll be looking at and installing the WeatherTech second and third row floor mat, part number WT451114 in Tan, also available in Black, part number Wt441114, and in Gray, part number WT461114. First thing we're going to need to do in the installation of our new floor mats is go ahead and remove any existing floor mats, whether that be your rubber aftermarket ones, or the cloth ones, like this, from the factory. Once you have it unlocked, then go ahead and pull them out. Now we'll remove the one from the back row, as well, since this is a second and third row floor mat. Our new floor mat, we'll pull it out of the box and set it up into position. For the new one to go in position, we'll just align it properly and we'll slide the front over and the center down in. You'll see that the tabs that we removed are going to have knobs here where you can put those over the top, so you can kind of get everything lined up where it needs to go. Let's go ahead and do the back third row.



WeatherTech Front Floor Liners Review - 2011 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2001 Chevrolet Traverse, we'll be taking a look at and installing the Weathertech Front Floor Mats, part number WT452511, in tan, which will also be available in black, part number WT442511. In gray, part number WT462511. First thing we're going to do is remove our factory floor mats and any accessory ones that we do have in our vehicle like these thick, rubber ones that they have in this vehicle. We'll pull those ones out and we'll go ahead and place in our new floor mat and set it in the recess where that factory latch was. You can see how it's going to have a nice contoured design around the whole front and the raised edges around the side. Another nice feature is going to be the cutout that it provides for your factory heat. You can also see that it's going to extend far past the pedals, giving you plenty of room to operate them and not causing a safety hazard like some floor mats will by rolling up.



WeatherTech Cargo Floor Liner Review - 2011 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Traverse, we will be taking a look at and installing the WeatherTech cargo liner, part number WT41424, in tan. Also available in gray, part number WT42424, and in black, part number, WT40424. Here you can see our cargo area without any mat in it. It can have dirt and debris and all kinds of stuff stuck to the carpet. It's going to be quite a mess. Why not insert your WeatherTech cargo liner It's going to be a nice, thick rubber thermoplastic that's going to be raised up around all the edges to prevent any moisture or any debris from getting on top of the carpet, or moving around on the inside of your vehicle. The channels are going to divert all that water away from whatever items and keep it off the carpet.



WeatherTech Cargo Liner Review - 2011 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2011 Chevrolet Traverse, we'll be taking a look at and installing the WeatherTech cargo liner, Part Number WT40632 in black, also available in gray, Part Number WT42632, and in tan, Part Number WT41632. Here's what our cargo area will look like once we open up the back hatch. You're going to see that there's going to be stuff stuck to it, and it's going to have stains on it and what not. How you're going to protect it is going to be using your WeatherTech cargo area mat. Simply slide it in, and see that it's going to have the raised contoured edges all the way around. That's going to protect your cargo area from getting any stains or damage. It's going to have the raised area.





Chevrolet Traverse Questions

  • I've linked you to install instructions for the wiring harness you mentioned, but I'd recommend using the Tow Ready # 118270 which doesn't require a power wire that's run to the vehicle's battery. The # 118270 includes a wiring harness that plugs into the tow package connector located under the vehicle on the passenger side to the right of the muffler, as well as the fuses and relays necessary to activate the factory trailer wiring tow package. The video I've linked shows the...

  • Since your 2015 Chevy Traverse does NOT have the tow package but Does have the rear AC unit I recommend wiring harness # 118270. It includes the necessary fuses and relays to activate the wiring tow package and will be easier to install that trying to adapt a different harness to fit.

  • Tow Ready wiring harness # 118271 is designed for 2014 Chevy Traverse models that came with a factory tow package. It is possible that your model does not have the factory tow package. But, it is also possible that the connector you need is tucked up where you can't easily see it or reach it. You would need to fish around for it up above that panel in the location where it is supposed to be. If you do not have the factory tow package (have the dealer run the VIN if you are...

  • I have added a link to the instructions below for you to review. There are 6 hex head, M12X1.75X45 CL10.9. The M12 bolts should be tightened to 92 Lb.-Ft. There are also 2 hex head 1/2inch-13 X 1-3/4 inch Gr.5 bolts. These should be tightened to 75 Lb.-Ft. If you need replacement hardware, I would suggest using part # RHK. Enter the brand and model of the hitch, and we can send you a complete hardware kit with all the bolts, washers, nuts etc. for that hitch.

  • If your tongue weight is going to be right at 555 lbs the E2 system part # FA92-00-0800 that you referenced would be a great choice as it has a tongue weight range of 500-800 lbs. Most likely your loaded tongue weight will be slightly over 555 lbs too. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the...

  • The T-One wiring harnesses for the version of your 2014 Chevrolet Traverse that HAS the factory tow package are parts # 118271 for the 7-way type and # 118270 for the flat 4-pole type. Both use the rectangular OEM connector included in tow packages that is shown in the linked photo. If this is what you have on your Traverse you can test the pins on it to see if the wiring is active. Some vehicles may not have the required fuses and relays installed (by the way, those are included...

  • There are basically 2 types of brake controllers: time delay and proportional. I would only recommend using a time delay controller if the trailer weight never changes since they require a lot more adjustment and fine tuning to get the trailer braking right when compared to proportional controllers. A proportional controller will apply the trailer brakes in proportion to how much your 2015 Chevy Traverse is braking. As such it is the safest way to stop and reduces wear and...

  • If you are talking about the fascia door that is removed from the lower center of the bumper, the Draw-Tite, # 75528, and Hidden Hitch, # 87435, will not allow you to replace the fascia door as the receiver opening sticks out just a little too far. The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13424, instructions, linked below, state that on some models, it is possible to replace the fascia door when the hitch is not being used. I spoke with my contact at Curt to clarify and she stated that on...

  • For your 2016 Chevy Traverse I recommend Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87435. This 2 inch hitch is rated for 750 pounds tongue weight and 5,000 pounds gross trailer weight (7,500 pounds when using weight distribution. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. For a trailer wiring harness I recommend # 118270. It will fit models that do not have the factory tow package. It includes the necessary fuses and relays to activate it. I have linked a video showing...

  • I do have a solution that would allow you to install the # HM40975 on your 2012 Traverse. I assume the socket you've found on the passenger side frame rail, to the right of the muffler as shown in Diagram 'C' that I provided. You would first install the Tow Ready # 118271 that you mentioned, because you need the fuses and relays to activate the tow package as well as the pigtail. On the rear of the 7-way where the pigtail meets the trailer connector, you'd slide up the gray...

  • The Thule Raceway 2 Trunk-Mount Bike Carrier, part # TH9001PRO, will fit on your 2010 Traverse but will not fit on your 2010 Honda CR-V. None of the Thule trunk-mount carriers will fit properly on your 2010 CR-V. Yakima offers many trunk carriers that will work on your CR-V but none of these will work on your Traverse! Hollywood Racks does offer their Over-the-Top 2-bike carrier, part # HRF2, that will work on both vehicles (as long as the CR-V does not have a trunk-mount...

  • We do offer some universal towing mirrors for your 2014 Chevrolet Traverse, but we do not have any custom fit mirrors available. One option I recommend is the K-Source Universal Towing Mirror, part # KS3891. This mirror will clip to most factory mirrors, and has a quick-release button to make it easy to adjust or remove. You may want to take a look at the attached product review video for this mirror. Another mirror you may want to check out is the CIPA Deluxe Door Mount...

  • Tow Ready 4-pole wiring harness # 118270 is intended for the Chevrolet Traverse both with and without the factory tow package. The vehicle will have a plug that mates with the one shown in the linked photo. The kit includes the harness, and the fuses and relays to activate it. I have linked a video for you that shows you the installation process on your same model year Traverse.

  • Once you install a Brake Controller adapter # 3026-P under the dash the wires run to the brake switch and the fuse block like you figured out. After that, the fuse block sends out the voltage on a wire to the brake circuit on the 7-pin at the rear of your vehicle. If you wanted to see where it goes check out the back of the 7-pin and trace the brake circuit wire back from the connector to through your vehicle. If you are looking at the back of the connector the circuit you will...

  • The fuse and relay legend or diagram should be stamped or printed on a sticker on the underside or the top of the fuse box cover. If you can't find it there it will also be listed in the owners manual. If you lost your owners manual you can do an internet search for "2014 Chevy Traverse Owners Manual," and you should be able to download a .pdf file of the manual.

  • The connector you need for a 2010 Chevy Traverse with Towing package is part # 3026-P. I have added a link to it below. I am looking at the instructions and it appears you will need a small flat head screw driver to gently pry the plastic push-rivets out to release the panel. I have added a link to the instructions below so you can see where the connector is located.

  • We do offer a reasonably priced roof rack solution for your Traverse that would utilize the existing tracks that run fore and aft along the edge of the roof. I'd recommend Inno's square bar roof rack, which would consist of the following parts: 46 Inch Long Square Profile Crossbars, part # INB117 Roof Rack Feet, part # INXR Fit Kit to join roof rack feet to roof mounted tracks, part # INTR504 Since you said you plan on mounting the kayak carriers outboard of the roof rack...

  • The 7-Way RV style trailer connector is more common than a 6-Way. The 6-Way will not have a reverse light/accessory circuit pin. They both will have stop, tail, turn, 12 volt, brakes, and ground circuits. I recommend a 7-Way since it is the more common connector. But if the trailer has a 6-Way connector, then it would be better to go with a 6-Way on the vehicle as well. In order to install a brake controller on your 2009 Chevy Traverse, there are a few parts you will need....

  • The trailer connector you purchased, # 118271, is designed to fit if your 2015 Chevy Traverse came with a factory tow package. If it did not come with the factory tow package then it is possible that some functions will not work. I checked the owner's manual for the 2015 Traverse and apparently in the under-hood fuse box there are 2 fuses each for trailer turn signal/brake lights. Two of them are labeled LT TRLR STOP/TRN and the other two are labeled RT TRLR STOP/TRN. You can...

  • I do not recommend using an extender because doing so will cut the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. A longer dual purpose ball mount is not available. What I recommend is a different type of bike rack. You could use a towing bike rack like # S64600 and a super extra long ball mount # 80232. With this set up, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rack should measure 7-7/8 inches, which should clear the back of your 2012 Chevy Traverse.
