Tow Ready Trailer Wiring Adapter Installation - 2014 Chrylser Town and Country

Today on our 2014 Chrysler Town and Country we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the tow ready 4 pole to 5 pole trailer wiring adapter. Part number is 20036. Now this is what our kit's going to look like when we pull it out of the package. This is our 20 inch adapter. Basically our 4 pole side is going to slide right into the existing 4 hole that's going to be on the back of our vehicle. That's a requirement for this kit. You want to have that 4 pole available.



Curt Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chysler Town & Country, we're going to be test fitting the Curt Premium 4 bike rack, part number C18064. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's go ahead and take a close look and show off some of the features. The first feature I'd like to show off is how the bars are shaped. This is pretty unique for a hanging style rack. They start narrow and then they fan out as they go towards the rear. With the narrower ones, you can use this for smaller bikes such as kids' bikes. The cradles are adjustable along the arms to make loading a little bit easier.



Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country, we're going to be test fitting the Kuat Transfer three bike rack, part number TS03G. We already have a bike on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature we'd like to show of is that with this van in particular, the hitch sits pretty low to the ground. Thanks to the raised shank of the bike rack itself, you're not going to have an clearance issues with your bikes. Another really great feature about this is the fact that this can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that, I'll have to lift these up here just to get to it.



Rola TX-104 Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country we're going to be test fitting the ROLA TX-104 4-bike rack, part number 59401. 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 like to show off is its integrated cable lock in the center of the mast. You'll pull that up and around your bikes and attach it to this point here, and lock it in place to prevent theft and tampering. The cradles themselves are adjustable along the length of the bike rack arms.



Yakima SwingDaddy Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town and Country, we're going to be tested the Yakima SwingDaddy 4 bike rack. Part number: Y02464. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go and take closer look and show off some of the features. Now the first feature I like to show off is this important feature, which is the fact that it swings away from the vehicle to give you a hatch access for your van. This is unique for a hanging style bike rack because the bikes can still be attached. Let's go and show you how to do that. Come here to the bottom to this knob here, turn it loose.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country, we're going to be test-fitting the Thule Vertex Swing 4 Bike Rack, part number TH9031XT. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first and probably most important feature of this rack is the fact that this can swing away from the vehicle with the bike still attached, which is pretty unique for a hanging-style rack. To do that, we'll unscrew this knob at the back, it's loose enough, we'll remove this pin here, and just set it off to the side for now, then lift up on this T-handle, like so, and that will release the actual swing function. Bring it around, and then we'll bring the rack itself back on, like so, so it'll catch right there, and then we'll keep on pushing it the rest of the way, like so.



Softride Element-Parallelogram Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town and Country we're going to be test fitting the Softride Element Parallelogram Tilting Four Bike rack or number SR26248. 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. Now probably the most important feature about this bike rack is the fact that you can tilt it away from the vehicle with the bikes still attached which is pretty unique for a hanging style bike rack. To do that, there's this black handle on the passenger side of the mast. You pull that out like so, let it come towards you and with that, we have total access to our rear hatch to get whatever it is that we need with plenty of space on either side to do so. Like as you see here. To put it back in it's original position you just push it back up, like so. The cradles themselves are adjustable you just pull out these plastic pieces in between and set them up however you like.



Pro Series Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country, we're going to be test-fitting the Pro Series Q Slot 4 Bike Rack part number PS63138. As you can see, we already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now for this particular vehicle, the first feature I like to show off, is the fact that the pitch itself kind of sits low to the ground and since this has a ray 00:00:21 shank, you're not going to have any ground clearance issues with this bike rack. One of the main features is while this is a four bike rack here, you can remove this section on the end and turn it into just a two bike rack if you wanted to. How the bike is actually attached to the rack, we're going to have three points of contact.



Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country we're going to be test fitting the Swagman XT 2-bike rack, part number S64650. As you can see, 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. Now this is one of the more simplistic bike racks, and it only grips your bike by one point of contact. That's going to be the padded hook here at the top of the frame. We also have two wheel cradles that are adjustable.



Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town & Country we're going to be test fitting the Yakima LiteRider 2 Bike Rack or number Y02472. Now we already have a bike installed on the rack, let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first is it's integrated cable lock which is going to be on the back of the mast. It'll pull out like so, then wrap it around your bikes and attach it to this point here, locking it and preventing theft and tampering of your actual bikes. The cradles are adjustable along the arms to make it easier to load, we also have these bottle openers on the ends of the arms as well. How it actually grips the bike you're going to have three points of contact, we're going to have two zip strips up at the top here, and one off to the side, and that's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike moving too far back and forth possibly hitting the bike in front of it and damaging them both. Let's go ahead and take the bikes off, the bike off, excuse me, and set it aside.



Rola Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Chrysler Town and Country

Today on our 2012 Chrysler Town and Country, 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 take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature I like to point out is the fact that it has an integrated cable lock here in the center of mast. We'll pull the cable out, wrap it around the bikes, and attach it to this point here and lock it down, to prevent theft and tampering. The cradles themselves are adjustable along the length of the bike, to make reloading a little bit easier, and the bike rack grips the bike itself by three points. We have two straps up at the top here and one 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, possibly hitting the bike in front of it and damaging them both.



Best 2007 Chrysler Town and Country Hitch Options

Today in our 2007 Chrysler-Town and Country, we'll be looking at our most popular hitch options. On the top we have a Dra-Tite class 3, part number 75305. In the middle, we have a Draw-Tite class 2, part number 36320 and on the bottom, we have a Curt Class 3, part number 13389. Now our class 3 Draw-Tite here is different than our other 2 hitches in regards that there's 2 holes here. The larger 5/8ths diameter hole is for your standard hitch pin or your locking device to secure your ball mount and bike carrier cargo rack. The one in front of it right here towards the back, opening of the receiver is a half inch diameter hole for a J-pin stabilization device. J-pin stabilization device allows you to secure your bike carrier or your cargo rack to get some of that annoying shake, play 00:00:49 and rattle out of the shank 00:00:50 or receiver if your hitch mounting accessory doesn't already have an anti-rattle device built into it.

The larger 5/8 diameter pole is for your standard hitch pin or your locking device to secure your ball mount, bike carrier, or cargo rack. The one in front of it, right here towards the back opening of the receiver, is a 1/2 inch diameter hole for a J-pin stabilization device. J-pin stabilization device allows you to secure your bike carrier or your cargo rack, to get some of that annoying shake, play, and rattle out of the shank of the receiver if your hitch-mounted accessory doesn't already have an anti-rattle device built into it.



Best 2005 Chrysler Town and Country Hitch Options

Today on our 2005 Chrysler Town and Country we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options. On the top we have a Draw-Tite Class 3, Part Number 75305. In the middle we have a Draw-Tite Class 2, Part Number 36320, and on the bottom we have a Curt Class 3, Part Number 13389. Now our Class 3 Draw-Tite here is different than our other two hitches in regards that there's two holes here. The larger 5/8ths diameter hole is for your standard hitch pin or your locking device to secure your ball mount by carrier or cargo rack. The one in front of it right here towards the back opening of the receiver is a 1/2-inch diameter hole for a J-pin stabilization device. The J-pin stabilization device allows you to secure your bike carrier or your cargo rack to get some of that annoying shake play and rattle out of a shank or the receiver if your hitch-mounted accessory doesn't already have an anti-rattle device built into it.



WeatherTech Side Window Air Deflectors Install - 2014 Chrysler Town and Country

Today in our 2014 Chrysler Town & Country, we'll be installing the WeatherTech Side Window Air Deflectors with dark tinting for the front, part number WT80476. They are also available in light tinting, part number WT70476. It's a very sleek and slim appearance to the exterior of our vehicle. Because these window visors are so slim in nature, it's almost like the vehicle came with them direct from the factory. We have our window lowered about two inches, but in this position here we'll allow ourselves to have maximum air flow inside the car, even in a very bad rainstorm, and we wouldn't get any rain inside our vehicle. All right, with our window partially rolled down in this position here, and our window already clean, we can go ahead and install our window visor. I'll start with the front, just slide it into the window channel like so.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2006 Chrysler Town and Country - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2006 Chrysler Town and Country, we'll be installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver, Part Number 75305. Here's what a hitch looks like once it's installed. As you can see, it tucks up fairly nicely behind the bumper of our vehicle. The only part that really hangs down is the two hitch receive itself, and a frame of the hitch. You see we've got this nice cutout around the exhaust, so we don't have to lower the exhaust all to install the hitch. The hitch installs using factory hardware already on the vehicle, so there's no drilling or modification of the vehicle required at all.



Best 2016 Chrysler Town and Country Hitch Options

The second here, we have a class three Draw-Tite, part number 75579. Third one here, we have a class two Draw-Tite, part number 36455. Finally, on the bottom we have a CURT class two, part number C12264. Now the difference between our class three hitches here, the CURT will stick out a little bit further as far as where the receiver sticks out from the bumper, so it will be easier to access than the Draw-Tite here. The Draw-Tite will stick in about an inch more inside the bumper area.

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...

  • 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...

  • 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 XT, # TH859XT 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Draw-Tite # 75579 is a Class III trailer hitch that will not require trimming. I have linked...

  • 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...

  • To install a 7-way on your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country you will first need to install the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # 118552 that you referenced. I attached installation instructions and an installation video for you to check out. If there are not trailer brakes on the trailer you plan on towing you could just use a 4-way to 7-way adapter like a Pollak 7 Pole to 4 Pole Connector Adapter # PK12716 and you would be ready to go. If you have trailer brakes you will...

  • Converters are required when a vehicle has what is called a 3-wire or separate lighting system. These systems will have turn signal circuits that are separate from the brake light circuits. Trailers use a 2-wire or combined system meaning the brake lights and turn signals are on the same circuit. A converter is needed to take the separate signals from the vehicle and combine them so that the trailer lights operating on a combined system will work properly. Wires and fuses...

  • Curt produces their hitch, part # 13364 with a baked-on powder coat. Of all the finishes, I think the Curt is the most durable. However, the Curt powder coat finish is very glossy compared to the others. Some people prefer the dull finish because it attracts less attention. If this is a concern of yours, I would go with the Draw-Tite, part # 75579. It will hold almost as well as the Curt without being so glossy. My grandfather-in-law just had the Curt hitch installed on his...

  • The WeatherTech Side Window Air Deflectors, # WT82476, include deflectors for the front and rear driver's-side and passenger's-side windows of your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country. The deflectors for the front windows are actually longer than those for the rear doors due to the fact that they line more of the window. For the front windows the deflector begins near the side mirror and then runs across the top of the window where as the deflector for the back window just runs...

  • 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...

  • The towing capacity of your 2015 Chrysler Town and Country is going to depend on a few factors. Take a look at the picture I have included from the owner's manual. It illustrates the capacity of the vehicle in certain scenarios. At most the van can tow 3,600 pounds. I do recommend a transmission cooler because when towing or even when just carrying a lot of weight in the van, it puts additional strain on the transmission. A supplemental cooler will help to lower the fluid temperature...

  • For your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country you will want to get a powered tail light wiring harness such as the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # C56162. The tail light circuitry on your vehicle is delicate and if it were to be overdrawn by powering trailer tail lights you would end up popping fuses left and right, and most likely end up damaging the circuitry. Whats nice about the # C56162 is that it plugs-in inline with your tail light wiring and only requires that you ground...
