Blue Ox Base Plate Kit Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms, part number BX1706. Here's what this base plate kit is going to look like once it's installed on the vehicle. The most noticeable things you'll see are going to be these convenience links out in front for the safety chains. This base plate kit's going to do a really good job of making sure that it's easy to hook your towed vehicle up to your motor home, so that way when you're ready to go, you just hook it up and you're ready to roll. You don't need to spend a bunch of time tightening bolts and getting everything set and square, but rather you hook it up and you go. This kit has the removable arms. In order to install these, you push them in, twist until they lock in place.



WeatherTech Side Window Air Deflectors Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, we'll be taking a look at the WeatherTech Side Window Air Deflectors with Dark Tinting for the front, part number WT80499. This is also available in light tinting, part number WT70499. The WeatherTech side window air deflectors allow for fresh air to come in while keeping bad weather out. It's also going to help reduce wind noise and allow interior heat to escape your Chevrolet Traverse. These air deflectors have a low profile, original-equipment look. The air deflectors are made out of a durable, 3-mm-thick acrylic construction. Now that we've gone over some features, we're going to show you how to get these installed. We're going to start off by taking our F-clip, which is provided and push back the weather strip and insert insert it about 3/8" away from the top.



Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be test fitting the Kuat NV 2.0 Two-Bike Rack, Part Number NV22G. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The most important feature about this bike rack is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that, we have this latch here, which is a little bit easier to get to, pull it towards us holding on to the bike rack and letting it come down. Now with it tilted away, we have full access to the rear hatch to get whatever we need with plenty of space on either side to do so.



Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be testing the Swagman XC-2 Bike Rack, part number F64650. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. How the bike is actually hooked onto this rack, we're going to have one point of contact, and that's going to be this padded frame hook up at the top. That's going to ensure that your bike doesn't get scratched up once you get it installed. We also have these wheel wells here at the base, if you loosen up these knobs, they do adjust along the length of the bike rack. So they fit in things a little easier, but also to accommodate different sized bikes.



Rola Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be test-fitting the Rola TX-102 2-Bike Rack, part number 59400. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature I'd like to show off is this integrated cable lock here in the center of the mast. You'll pull it up around your bikes and attach it to this end here and lock it into place to prevent theft and tampering. The cradles themselves are adjustable along the arms of the rack to help better fit bikes and it grips your bike in three locations. We have two straps up at the top here and one strap off to the side, and that's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and possibly hitting the bikes in front of it. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be test fitting the Thule T2 Pro 2 Bike Platform Rack for number TH9034. We already have the bike installed on the rack. Let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now the first and most important feature of this rack is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that, there's this great handle up at the front. You pull towards you and let it come down, which is a little bit more convenient than other racks that usually have the latches up towards the front. It can make it a little awkward to lower them out of the way. Let's go ahead and do that.



Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to be test-fitting the Yakama Wide Rider Two-Bike Rack. Part number Y02472. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature I like to show off is the fact that it has an integrated cable lock at the back of the mast. You pull it out like so, wrap it around the bikes in the front, and then connect it to this point here, and lock it down to prevent theft and tampering of your bikes. The cradles themselves have this super cush material, which is nice and padded for your bike so it won't scratch them up. It also has these zip strips which are easy to remove so you can take your bike off without any problems.

CIPA Clamp On Universal Fit Towing Mirror Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2010 Chevrolet Traverse we'll be doing a test fit on the Cipa Universal Bar Towing Mirror, part number CM11980. It offers us a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park, or even back up while towing a trailer. The mirror itself can be rotated 360 degrees and can be adjusted to any angle. It can also be extended out to further suit our towing needs. We simply undo the nut up here, on top, bring it out, and then tighten it back down.

Today, on our 2010 Chevrolet Traverse, we'll be doing a test fit on the CIPA Clip-On Towing Mirror, part number 7070. It offers us a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park, or even back up, while towing a trailer. The mirror can be rotated 360 degrees, and can be positioned at any angle we choose. It's not going to interfere with the operation of our factory mirror, though we won't be able to rotate it all the way in as the arm will come in contact with the trim. The mirror measures 7 1/2 inches long by 5 inches wide. Now, it comes in a quantity of 1, so if you'd like to pick up a second one for the other side, just use the same part number. I'm here at the passenger side of my Traverse, and to begin our test fit, we need to make sure that our arms are opened up, ready to receive the housing. We also, when we clip it on, we want to make sure that each one of these clips is on the inside of the housing.

Here's what our wiring kit's going to look like when you pull it out of the package. This is a really straight-forward, simple installation. Here you'll see our 4 pole trailer pole.

This is going to give a full function 7-way there at the back of our trailer minus the reverse circuit. You can see inside we're going to have a gasket there, that's going to protect our plug from the elements, keep out any kind of moisture or debris.





Chevrolet Traverse Questions

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Rola offers a folding carrier, part # 59550 that's compatible with the # 59516 light kit. To see if the basket would work on your vehicle, you'll need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole in your receiver to the furthest rearward edge of the rear bumper, as shown in the FAQ article I've linked you to. As long as this distance is less than 7 inches, the carrier would be compatible with your vehicle. Unfortunately, Rola doesn't make a folding version of the # 59502. The...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • We do offer just what you are looking for. The carrier I recommend is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Platform Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier, part # HR1400-85. This carrier may work well with your 2015 Chevrolet Traverse if it has a 2 inch receiver. This carrier will allow you to carry 2 bikes and the cargo carrier, or 4 bikes without the carrier. You can also just use the cargo basket alone. I have attached a product review video you can check out for this carrier. This carrier...

  • 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...

  • The Curt cargo net, # C18201, might be a little small to cover the whole MegaWarrior plus the extension, # Y07080-82, which measures 74 inches long and 48 inches wide. The net is 65 inches long and 38 inches wide. Erickson cargo net, # EM01012, measures 52 inches wide and 70 inches long unstretched so that could be a good option for you if the cargo in the basket sits up above the top of the basket. I have linked a video review of this net for you. The hooks should fit just...

  • 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...

  • We do not have a replacement lens for the style of light that is on your Jayco trailer. I recommend replacing the lights with something more common such as # 271594 and # 271595 which are LED, wrap around style tail lights. Or for something more traditional in an incandescent light I recommend # 403026 and # 403076. I have linked some review videos for you.

  • 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.

  • That is simply too much to spend on adapter bars, I agree. You don't have to use a specific adapter bar so you can use # HE6009 which costs much less than some of the other options. You don't necessarily have to use bike adapter bars. But there are some situations where using one is the only way to load certain bikes. Take a look at the video I have linked for some examples. A regular women's bike frame that has the slanted bar doesn't have to have one (though the bike would...

  • We have many roof rack options for your 2010 Chevrolet Traverse with the rear moon roof. I have attached a link to the compatible roof racks for you to check out. Of the available roof racks, I recommend looking at the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack, # RRRS538B. This roof rack mounts on the outside of the flush side rails on your vehicles roof and will not interfere with the moon roof. I would not recommend opening the moon roof with the roof rack installed because the mounting...

  • 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...

  • Safety chains aren't necessary for a hitch mounted accessory like your cargo carrier or for a bike rack, since they are attached directly to the hitch receiver, versus a trailer that couples to a ball mount that attaches to the receiver. For extra security you could use a locking hitch pin like part # 40107, but a pin and clip like part # PC3 would be just fine, as well. If the basket or the cargo stored on it would obscure the tailllights on lyour Traverse, an LED light...

  • 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...

  • Some would argue that the handle setup on the part # PS1401140303 is a bit easier to use and folds down out of the way a bit tighter than the part # PS1400300303, but aside from that the jacks are internally the same.

  • I am sure that with enough trimming you could find a way to be able to reinstall the fascia door of your 2015 Chevy Traverse, but Draw Tite recommends it just simply get removed and not reinstalled when installing the # 75528. The Curt hitch # 13424 that is also confirmed as a fit for your vehicle has installation instructions that indicate that the panel could be reinstalled if desired on some models

  • First, you do not necessarily have to remove the front clip on your 2012 Chevy Traverse to install a supplemental transmission cooler. It just makes installation a lot easier if there is nothing in the way. We have not yet installed a transmission cooler on a Traverse so I do not have a video or specific instructions on removing the front clip. When our installers perform an installation they have to determine where the fasteners are that hold on the front clip (if it is a...
