When we're ready to tow our trailer, we're simply going to reach under, grab, pull it out, and tilt it to the side so it catches and drop in the ball. Notice that it's going to go in one way. Then, all you have to do is release your handle and lock it in place. With it locked in place, your ball isn't going to go anywhere. It's going to have the nice spring-loaded chain tie downs on either side that are going to allow you to put those safety chains right under. The center locator is a great feature of this hitch.

Not only that, we have our trailer connected now. You can note that by seeing the C on the side here. Press in the manual and you can see the gain for the manual switch on our trailer. Since this is a proportional braking system, this is going to be how much power you're putting out to those trailer brakes, as well as selecting from the different boost modes here on the top, depending on what trailer you have connected will depend on what boost you're going to select. The wheel here on the side is going to be the power wheel to adjust the power that's going back to your brakes.

Dodge Ram Pickup Questions

  • To determine the size of the hub assembly you need to purchase you have to determine which bearings are in the old assembly. If the old assembly has L44649 inner bearings, you would use the hub you chose # 8-258-5UC1. If the inner bearings are marked L44643, you will need # 8-258BTUC1. If you do not have the old bearings, you need to measure the inner bearing surface on the spindle to determine if the 1.063 inch dimension or 1.00 inch dimension will be needed to accept the bearing....

  • In my opinion, the best way to tow a fifth wheel trailer with your 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with the OEM fifth wheel prep package is to use a fifth wheel hitch that fits the in-bed pucks in your truck bed. You have several hitch options that will work, but my favorite is the B&W Companion 25K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # BWRVK3600. This hitch will drop right into the pucks in the truck bed and once it is removed, you will have full access to your bed. Curt also makes fifth wheel hitches...

  • Thank you for sending the photo, it really makes things easier! The connector you show in your photo is not the connector for installing a brake controller. If you look on the firewall behind the emergency brake, you will see a white wiring junction box. The blue female connector that accepts the # 3020-P brake control wiring adapter is located alongside or on top of this junction box, as you can see in the photo I have edited for you. I have also linked you to an install video...

  • Yes, I can certainly help you with getting your 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 hooked up with a brake controller. The item you selected, Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part # 90885, will work great on your Dodge Ram, and I would recommend it. The P2 Brake Controller is a proportional brake controller, so it applies brake power to your trailer in proportion to the brake pressure applied to your vehicle. If you have a factory 7-way on the truck then all you will need to install...

  • The Prodigy P2 brake controller # 90885 and the Primus IQ # TK90160 share some basic features, but there are many differences. The most obvious ones are the displays and appearances of the units, which are connected to the usability of the brake controllers while towing. The P2 has a brighter, light-colored LED display that is easier to read than the red LED display on the Primus, and the P2 also features a rotary lever for the manual braking feature, while the Primus uses an...

  • The 205/65-10 and the 20.5 x 8-10 would be very close in size. Assuming that 20.5 is the diameter of the tire and 8 is the width. The Kenda 205/65-10 Bias Trailer Tire with 10 inch White Wheel, # AM3H390, for example, is 8.3 inches wide with a diameter of 20.5 inches. So it will be slightly wider than a 20.5 x 8. Even though it is such a small difference, I would recommend measuring for clearance on the trailer to ensure a proper fit. I have also included a link below on measuring...

  • It sounds like you have narrowed the problem down to being on your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 since multiple trailers have had the same results when connected to that vehicle. It sounds like the problem could be a blown relay on your truck since you have checked the fuses. However, the fuse you would be looking for should be in cavity J14 and will require a 20 amp cartridge fuse. We have seen this issue a few times and have seen some threads on the internet where people have had...

  • Your 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab appears to be a short bed model. The TracRac sliding ladder rack that will fit the short bed models is # TA21501-03. For long bed models the correct sliding ladder rack is # TA21000-03.

  • For your 2014 Ram 2500 without the factory prep package you can use Curt installation kit # C16427-104. The rails that are included with this kit will accept any Curt, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch, Husky, Reese, and Valley 5th wheel trailer hitch that fits in industry standard above the bed rails. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you.

  • It sounds as if you have an electric over hydraulic braking system on your horse trailer. Most OEM brake controllers are not compatible with electric over hydraulic actuators. If you trailer brakes are working, you may find that your actuator is cycling on and off when connected to the truck and this will significantly shorten the life of the actuator. The Dodge factory brake controllers are designed to be used with electric trailer brakes only and are not designed to be used...

  • It sounds like you are on the right track to rewire your cattle trailer. You are correct about the wire colors on the 7-way connector that you purchased. The colors that you see on the 7-way connector are typical for RV style trailers rather than utility, cargo, or livestock style trailers. The black wire should be connected to the terminal in the 7-way connector labeled black. This is the terminal in the 11 oclock position when you are looking at the back of the trailer connector...

  • The Tru Ryde grease seals you mentioned, part # RG06-70 are indeed a replacement for the 10-036-00 Dexter seals. They would work great for your application.

  • If your trailer has 7 wires running all the way back to the brakes, then yes, you can tap into the existing wiring. Each of your new brakes will have two wires for the brake magnet. One wire is for 12 volt power to the brake magnets and the other wire should be grounded either to the trailer frame or to the main trailer ground wire. It does not matter which wire is used for power or ground because they are not polarized. If the trailer wiring is running down the left side...

  • The Reese # RP30054 hitch you mentioned is intended to be bolted directly to the frame of a cab and chassis truck, so it wouldn't be a good choice for your Ram 3500 with the OEM tow prep kit. Curt and B&W both offer hitches that will drop right into the existing factory pucks in your truck bed. The Curt # C16545-16021 has a 24,000 lb capacity, while the B&W # BWRVK3600 offers a 25,000 lb capacity. Either hitch would be an excellent choice for you, but I'd give the B&W product...

  • The red light on the Hayes-Lemmerz Energize Electric Trailer Brake Controller, item # HA81745 should not illuminate until the brake pedal is pressed or the manual lever is activated. You may need to readjust the brake controller. This could happen because the brake controller position in the mount has changed or because the trailer weight has changed affecting the the ride height of the vehicle. If this does not solve the issue and the trailer brakes are not functioning properly...

  • I spoke with my contact at the supplier. They explained that a weight distribution system for underslung couplers has the spring arm pivot positioned lower to accomodate the lower coupler placement on the trailer tongue. I have attached a couple of photos that show the difference between standard and underslung trailer couplers. I have also linked you to a couple of FAQ articles that explain weight distribution and also determining trailer tongue weight. Keep in mind that when...

  • There is most likely a separate fuse and/or relay for the running light circuit on your 2012 Dodge Ram 3500. The easiest way to find any fuses or relays is to use the owners manual and/or legend on the power distribution box lid for the locations of items related to the tow package wiring. From what I could find in the online version of the owners manual, the trailer tow lamps/park lamps fuse is in cavity J14 and requires a blue 20 amp cartridge fuse.

  • There are several ways to adapt a 5th wheel trailer to enable it to be towed with a truck that has a goose neck hitch installed. The best choice for you will depend on how often you need to change between trailer types. Some of the adapters that allow this flexibility will put more stress on the trailer frame than other types. Options are still somewhat limited for newer vehicles like your 2014 Ram. The best method is to replace the pin box on your 5th wheel with a compatible...

  • Yes, we do have a generic brake controller wiring diagram on our Brake Controller Information page. I have added a link to it below. The bundle of wires you are looking for should contain the following: white with red stripe, blue with white stripe, green with black stripe and blue. You will match those 4 wires to the wires on the brake controller via the chart at the bottom of the page or the picture to the right that illustrates how the wires connect by color.

  • The lighting malfunctions you describe could be caused by one of several factors, but the most common faults that would account for them are either a bad ground or an overloaded wiring harness on the vehicle. Since you have tried your 2004 Ram Pickup with another trailer and have the same problem I suggest you first focus on the vehicle for troubleshooting. The best tool for this is a circuit tester, such as # 3808 or # 40376. First, you will want to test the Ram trailer connector...
