Chrysler Town and Country Questions

  • The Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 118534, and the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Harness, # C56150, both serve the same functions but are just made by two different companies. Either harness is compatible with your 2011 Chrysler Town and Country but my personal recommendation would be to purchase the Tow Ready brand. This harness provides a higher maximum amperage per circuit. I have attached a video which demonstrates the installation process of the Tow Ready Wiring...

  • On some vehicles that the CURT Trailer Hitch, # 13364, is designed for, there can be some components that require the cutout in order for the hitch to fit and/or to manipulate the heat shield behind it. Even though there is a cutout, it does not change the capacity of the hitch which is 400 pounds tongue weigh, 4,000 pounds gross trailer weight. I have included a link to the installation details and a video showing a typical installation. The difference between the CURT hitch...

  • There will have to bee some cutting and splicing to install a brake controller on your 2013 Chrysler Town and Country. Chrysler did not add a factory brake controller harness to the Town and Country, so the brake controller will need to be hardwired. The good news is that you will likely only have to splice one wire into your vehicle wiring. To install a brake controller like the Curt TriFlex, # C51140, that you referenced, you will want the Curt Universal Brake Controller Wiring...

  • We do not carry the Stowaway cargo carriers, so all I was able to go by was photos I managed to find online. From what I could see, it does not look like the carrier swings completely clear of the vehicle on the right side, which would interfere with the tent. Take a look at the diagram and photo I edited for you, which should give you an idea of how things would fit. As you can see in the diagrams, I do not believe that the cargo carrier you mentioned will swing far enough...

  • The only roof bag that has over 20 cubic feet of capacity is Rhino-Rack cargo bag # RRLBXL at 21.2 cubic feet. This is a huge bag at 71 inches long, 43 inches wide, and 12 inches tall so it requires a basket that is at least that size to be able to support the bag. For that you will need the Thule Canyon, # TH859 and the extension, # TH8591, for a total length of 69 inches which will support the bag well. I have linked review videos of the basket and bag for you. Check the...

  • The inlet/outlet/tubing diameters listed from Magnaflow are OD, outer diameter, not ID, inner diameter. If your tubing is 2.5 OD you will have to butt-weld the muffler to the exhaust tubing, the exhaust pipe will not slide into the muffler. Any muffler shop can do this. The MagnaFlow muffler, part # MF10416 is not designed to be a slip fit muffler. Your exhaust tubing would need to be designed for slip fit mufflers and have band clamps to apply sufficient pressure to seal the...

  • I'm sure you are already aware of this, but the M17 fuse is the fuse for your left tail light and license plate light. Since the fuse keeps blowing when the Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118534, is installed and it does not blow when the harness is removed, then that is a pretty good indication that the harness is the problem and it should be replaced. There is a good chance that the converter box shorted out causing the fuse to blow. A new wiring harness will most likely...

  • The TruRyde 7 x 1-1/4 inch brake assemblies # TRBK-7E-01 (left) and # TRBK-7E-02 (right) will fit in place of the Dexter # 23-48 and # 23-47 brakes. the TruRyde brake assemblies are rated for up to 2,500 pounds whereas the Dexter assemblies are rated for 2,000 pounds.

  • Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75579 will fit all models of the 2014 Chrysler Town and Country. There should be no bumper fascia trimming required. The only trimming mentioned in the instructions, linked to the right, is possibly on a mudflap. I have also included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. The Curt Hitch part # 13364 that you referenced would most likely require you to trim the fascia so I would not recommend it for you. If you plan on doing some...

  • I have done some research, and have found that the tow capacity of your 2005 Chrysler Town & Country is 3700 lbs. You will want to check in your owners manual to confirm the towing capacity. Also, it is important to remember that your towing capacity is limited by the lowest rated component in the towing system, including: vehicle, hitch, ball mount, hitch ball or the capacity of your trailer. To complete your towing system, you might be interested in the following: Trailer...

  • I spoke to my contact at CURT who said some minor trimming of the fascia is required for the hitch installation on your 2012 Town and Country, otherwise the receiver will impinge on the bumper cover. The area that needs to be trimmed is 2-3/4 inch wide by 1/2 inch tall. I have included a diagram of the area that needs to be trimmed as well as a link to installation details. The Hidden Hitch # 87451 is a Class III trailer hitch that will not require trimming. I have...

  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. There are a few figures to look first. Your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country owner's manual shows that the maximum towing capacity of the vehicle is 3,600 pounds with 2 people and luggage and the...

  • Thanks for providing as much information on your setup as you did. That makes my job very easy! So your trailer at it's heaviest would be 3,500 lbs which would mean the tongue weight could range from 350 to 525 lbs. The part # FA92-00-0450 is most likely going to be not rated high enough as you also have to factor the weight of cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle as tongue weight too. The part # FA92-00-0600 would be a better option as it has a tongue weight limit...

  • Both wiring harnesses for the 2012 Chrysler Town and Country, see link, are T-connectors but also need power from the vehicle battery in order to power the trailer lights. The T-connections provide the signals that tell the converter what to do. This method protects the electrical system on your van. Because these harnesses require a battery connection, you will need to disconnect the negative cable when wiring in the harness. Having the battery disconnected will essentially...

  • First, lets start with a trailer hitch. The most popular hitch for your 2012 Chrysler T and C is Hidden Hitch model # 87451. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you. Since you plan on doing some towing I also recommend the etrailer ball mount kit # EBMK4EL. It comes with a ball mount, interchangeable ball set, a hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. For trailer wiring, in order to add a 7-Way...

  • The wiring harness for your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country is the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118552. It is specifically designed to fit your vehicle. The Stow-Go seating will not have an effect on the installation or performance of this harness. I have included a link to the installation details and an install video on a similar vehicle for this harness below. The main difference between the 118552 harness and the one you have referenced is that the 118552 harness...

  • The best and safest way to carry 4 bikes all on one rack is to install a Class III trailer hitch on your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country, # 87451, and use a hitch mounted bike rack. There are different types of hitch mount bike racks. The most versatile as far as the types of bikes they can carry without the use of an adapter are platform style racks or racks that hold the bikes at the wheels. Our most popular 4-bike platform rack is the Swagman XTC4, # S64665. I have included...

  • Lets start with the hitch. If you would only be using the hitch as an attachment point for a bike rack, and cannot foresee ever towing a trailer or needing a hitch mounted accessory like a cargo tray like part # 63153, a trunk or hatch mounted rack would be an excellent choice. Since a trunk mount rack is typically not left in place when not being used, you will want to choose the rack that is easiest to install and remove. The Thule Raceway, part # TH9001PRO for a 2 bike capacity...

  • As long as the trailer is towing level and straight and you are not having problems with high winds or large vehicles passing on the highway causing sway there is most likely no need for weight distribution and/or sway control. If you find that the back of the truck is sagging when the truck and trailer are fully loaded and ready to tow, or if, when towing, large trucks or high winds cause the trailer to sway then weight distribution with sway control would be a good choice...

  • Either the Hopkins Plug-N-Tow wiring harness, part # 42235 or the Tow Ready Wiring Harness, part # 118300 would work great with your 2006 Chrysler Town and Country with the stow-and-go seats. Both wiring harnesses attach inline with the existing harness behind the tail light assemblies. I will link you to the installation instructions. You can find the link below.
