Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Ford Edge

On this 2016 Ford Edge, we're going to review and install the Tekonska Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller, part number 90195. Now to help us with our install, we'll be using a couple additional part numbers. We'll be using ETBC7, that'll provide our 7-pole connector out the back of the vehicle, and our connection up front up to the battery and for our brake controller. Also to help us mount our 7-pole connector at the back, we'll be using part number 18136, the universal mounting bracket. This is what the P3 brake controller looks like when it's installed on our Ford Edge. We have this in a typical location right here. Now you can move it anywhere you like, as long as it's in easy reach of it when you need to use it.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2015 Ford Edge

Today on our 2015 Ford Edge, we're going to be taking a look at the Curt 20x48 cargo carrier, part number C18110. On this particular cargo carrier, something that's really nice is that it's got this nice, heavy duty steal flooring so that whatever dirt and debris they get on here is going to fall through so that way it doesn't collect and get onto the bottom of your cargo. It's got this brace that goes straight across the center and then a nice strong frame that supports it around the outside to give it a 300 pound capacity. Here on the lip, that makes up the wall all the way around, we've got some predrilled tie down points to help make that you can keep your cargo secure on this carrier. Let's take a few measurements. First, well see total distance added to the vehicle. That's going to be about 26 inches. We'll get the closest point to the vehicle which is right about 6 inches.



Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Ford Edge

Today on our on our 2015 Ford Edge we're going to be taking a look at the Swagman Trailhead 4-bike hanging-style rack for 1-1/4" and 2" hitches, part number S63380. Now on this bike rack the bike is secured in three locations. We've got our two straps that are right there. Then we've got one more back here. The third location that we secure is down here on the downtube of the frame for sway control to make sure that the bike doesn't swing too much. Now we'll remove the bike and we'll set it off to the side. Now with the bike out of the way, let's take a couple measurements.



Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2015 Ford Edge

Today on our 2015 Ford Edge, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima Fold Back 2 bike rack, part number Y02634. 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 feature I like to show off is it's integrated cable lock here at the end of our arm. You'll pull this out, wrap it around your bikes and then back to this point here to lock it down for some additional security and to prevent theft and tampering. The cradles are adjustable and it grips the bike at 3 points. We have 2 zip strips up at the top bar here and one strip off to the side and that's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from going too far back and forth, possibly hitting the bikes in front of it. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. To do that, on either side of the zip strip are these tabs.



Yakima Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2015 Ford Edge

Today on our 2015 Ford Edge we're going to be testing the Yakima Halfback 2 Bike Rack, part number Y02636. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. It has nice padded cradles which are adjustable along the length of the bike rack. Also has these bottle openers at the end so after you're done with a ride you can crack open a cold one. It also grips the bike in 3 places on the bike's frame. We have 2 zip strips up at the to here and one off at the side. That is 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. Let's go and take the bike off and set it aside.



Best 2016 Ford Edge Hitch Options

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the best hitch options for your 2016 Ford Edge. The Draw-Tite, which is a Class III hitch, part number 75234; the Curt class III, part number C13234; and then the Curt Class II, which is part number C12140. The biggest difference that I see between these 3 hitches is with this Draw-Tite. When the Draw-Tite is installed, this cross tube is tucked up nicely behind the rear fascia, whereas with both Curts this cross tube is tucked up just right at the very bottom of it, but you are still able to see it. Another difference between these is that on the Draw-Tite for the safety chain loops, it's got plates that come down the sides here to where the safety chains will hook up just underneath the receiver tube, whereas with both Curt hitches it's got the plate that's welded to the bottom side of the receiver tube, so it's pretty flush there. Because of that, on this Draw-Tite, you're going to get about 1-1/2 inch less ground clearance than you will with these Curts, so depending on your needs, you may want to take that into consideration. Up here on the Draw-Tite, we got 2 holes. We've got both the 5/8-inch hole and a 1/2-inch hole here. What that allows us to do is that allows it to be compatible with J-pin stabilization systems for that nice confident secure mount back here, whereas with the Curt, this one just gives you the 5/8 inch and the Class II gives you the 1/2 inch.



Best 2015 Ford Edge Hitch Options

Today we're going to be taking a look at the best hitch options for your 2015 Ford Edge: The Draw-Tite, which is a class three hitch, part number 75234. The CURT class three, part number C13234. Then the CURT class two, which is part number C12140. The biggest difference that I see between these three hitches is with this Draw-Tite. When the Draw-Tite's installed, this crosstube is tucked up nicely behind the rear fascia, whereas with both CURTs, this crosstube is tucked up just right at the very bottom of it, but you are still able to see it. Another difference between these is that on the Draw-Tite, for the safety chain loops, it's got plates that come down the sides here to where the safety chains will hook up just underneath the receiver tube, whereas with both CURT hitches it's got the plate that's welded to the bottom side of the receiver tube so it's pretty flush there. Because of that, on this Draw-Tite you're going to get about 1-1/2" less ground clearance than you will with these CURTs.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2014 Ford Edge - Curt

Today on our 2014 Ford Edge, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the CURT trailer hitch receiver for the class three hitch, part number C13067. This is what the CURT hitch looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. On this Ford Edge Sport, you can see that it's nicely tucked up underneath and very well hidden. All you can see is the receiver tube here, along with the round steel looped safety chain hoops. This hitch is a fairly easy installation. It bolts into place with minimal drilling required.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Ford Edge

Today on our 2011 Ford Edge, we're going to be taking a look at in installing the Hopkins InSIGHT Flex-Mount Trailer Brake Controller. Part number HM47297. In conjunction with the universal installation kit for trailer brake controllers, part number ETBC7. We're using part number 18136 which is a long no drill mount bracket. A feature of this one that a lot of other brake controllers don't have is that it has three separate components: the read out, this little control box right here, and then also the brake controller box itself. You can mount these just about wherever you'd like.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2008 Ford Edge

Today on our 2008 Ford Edge, we'll be showing you how to install the Curt T-connector vehicle wiring harness with four pole flat connector, part number C56160. Already got the wiring harness layout here, with the yellow wires going towards the left for the left turn signal, and the green going to the right for the right turn signal. Go ahead and remove our taillight assemblies. There's two eight millimeter bolts right here. Grab the taillight assembly, pull it towards you, and it'll pop out. Just go ahead and undo these connectors, push on the push tab, pull. Undo all three connectors.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Ford Edge - Curt

Today on our 2015 Ford Edge we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver. This is a class 2 hitch. Part number C12140. Here's what the hitch looks like when it's installed on your vehicle. Here on the receiver tube we've got our 1/2 inch hitch pin hole. We've got a reinforcement collar here around the inch and 1/4 by inch and 1/4 receiver tube opening.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Ford Edge - Curt

Today on our 2015 Ford Edge we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt trailer hitch receiver, which is a class 3 hitch, part number C13234. Now this is what the hitch looks like once it's installed on a vehicle. Here we've got the 5/8-inch hitch pin hole. We've got the reinforcement collar here around the 2-inch by 2-inch receiver tube opening. This one has a flat steel welded to the bottom for the safety chains with holes cut in it. This hitch is easy to install.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2015 Ford Edge - Draw-Tite

Today on our 2015 Ford Edge, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver. It's a class III hitch, part number 75234. This is what the hitch looks like once it's installed on your vehicle. Pretty easy install, it simply bolts into place. There's no drilling or welding required. A nice black power coat finish, with a base e-coat for superior rust and corrosion protection. It comes with a max tongue weight rating of six hundred seventy five pounds, and that's both with and without weight distribution system.



Surco Products Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2010 Ford Edge

Today on this 2010 Ford Edge we're going to be test fitting the 20 by 48 Surco cargo carrier for inch and a quarter hitches. Part number 52017. Now we already have it installed on our vehicle, let me go ahead and go over some features here. First off this has a 300 pound carrying capacity and has a nice mesh floor here which is going to make it really easy to clean. It has this rail going all the way around the cargo carrier which can serve as a tie down point for you ratchet straps or your bungee cords. Whatever you use to tie down your cargo. I'm going to go ahead and give you some measurements now.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2010 Ford Edge

Today, in our 2010 Ford Edge, we're going to be taking a look at installing the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector; part number C56160. Here's what it looks like once it's installed when you're ready to use it. As we lay it over our inaudible 00:00:19 plate, we want to take caution not to get it near the latch because we don't want to pinch our wires. We can just close it over top, remove the weather-tight cap, plug it into the trailer, and once we're all done, we can cover it back up, raise the hatch, and put the wire in stowaway for safe keeping until we're ready to use it again. Now, with our wiring system installed, it's going to reduce stress on your vehicle's wiring system while you're towing your trailer. It's a very easy install; it just plugs in behind your tail lights and you're going to run power wire up to the front to your battery. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install it. This is what your kit is going to consist of: a module to convert your signals, T-connectors, hardware package, fuse holder, and the power wire that's going to run from the back of your car to your front. This module is going to help protect your electrical system on your vehicle by not overloading the circuit, since it's going to be powered from the battery itself and not tied into your car's electrical system. To start installing, we're going to remove the tail lights by removing the two 8mm bolts.



Trailer Hitch Installation - 2010 Ford Edge - Hidden Hitch

Today on our 2010 Ford Edge, we're going to be taking a look at installing the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch receiver, class two, part number 90164. Here our hitch is installed.

It's got a nice, welded on collar around the outside to give it a little bit of extra strength. All the rest of your hitch is going to be hidden except for the receiver tube and the safety chain rings. .. It attaches with four bolts to the frame, no drilling is required, and all of the hardware instructions are included with your hitch. This is a class two hitch.





Ford Edge Questions

  • The hitch mounted cargo carrier that is selected most by our customers that have a 2012 Ford Edge, is the Pro Series 24 x 60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153. This carrier is not a folding style carrier like the one you referenced though, but does have a larger platform and cutouts to insert taillights, like part # 98174LED, if the cargo you will be carrying might cover the vehicle taillights. If you like the folding option, the Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18151, that you referenced...

  • Determining the mounting locations of your E-Track, part # E19148, will depend on the construction of your trailer and personal preference. If you are mounting the E-Track on the bed of your trailer, to tie down a car or similar item, you will need to determine the best position for the vehicle or item and the best situation for installing the E-Track. You may need to install bracing under the bed of the trailer to get enough mounting points for a secure installation. It sounds...

  • We do have plenty of choices in roof racks for your 2015 Ford Edge with Vista roof. Just click on the link provided and select your roof style, flush rails or a bare roof, at the top of the page. You'll then see the options for that roof style. If you happen to have the bare roof you can use Yakima's round bar rack system consisting of parts # Y00409, # Y00124, # Y00664 and # Y00731. You'll also want to get the end caps # Y8007026 for a nice neat appearance. If you have...

  • According to the 2015 Ford Edge owner's manual you can flat tow the 2015 Edge Titanium if it has the 2.7 liter EcoBoost or 3.5 liter motor and 6-speed automatic transmission. Since you have a 3.5 liter then as long as you have the 6-speed automatic you can flat tow your Edge using Blue Ox base plates # BX2656. And for a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. This tow bar also comes with safety cables. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit such as #...

  • According to Yakima, the Whispbar Custom Fit Kit, # WB-K485, can be used on your 2013 Ford Edge with the panoramic roof. To complete the roof rack, you will also need the Whispbar Crossbars, # WB-S17. One thing to keep in mind when using a roof rack on your vehicle is that the panoramic sunroof cannot be opened while the roof rack is attached. You could also use the Whispbar Crossbars, # WB-S8, which will provide a factory look, but the usable crossbar space is limited to...

  • Yes there are pictures showing Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75234 installed on a Ford Edge. I have included a picture and there are also a couple in the instructions I have linked for you. This hitch is exactly what you are looking for. The cross tube is hidden and only the receiver is visible. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch...

  • The only vehicles that produce a substantial amount of heat and volume from the exhaust are diesel trucks. The heat of the exhaust coming from your vehicle would not be very hot, and if you were to get a cargo carrier with a rise built into the shank it wouldn't even be directed at the carrier. Plus the carrier will actually be several inches from the exhaust so by the time it were to reach the carrier it will have cooled off. Especially when you consider the wind created by...

  • A single kayak will not likely impose too much weight burden on your Edge roof, but its always a good idea as a starting point to double check your owners manual to confirm how much weight the roof can handle. If you would like the flexibility to add other types of roof-mount accessories then you may want to go with a roof rack system designed for your vehicle. Roof racks can accept all sorts of cargo accessories, from kayak carriers to bike racks to luggage boxes. Again, confirm...

  • This Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ will work on your non-ez lube spindles. The only difference between the ez lube hub and drums and the non-ez-lube hub and drums is the grease cap. The ez lube ones like the # 84546UC3-EZ have a remove-able rubber seal on the cap that allows you to access the grease fitting of the ez-lube spindles. The # 84546UC3-EZ will work for you regardless if you have EZ-lube spindles or not. I also attached a video on trailer brake installation...

  • I checked with Yakima and the Baseline rack part numbers # Y00421, # Y00146, # Y06102, and # Y06139 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for the 2016 Ford Edge with a Panoramic Vista Roof. I attached a couple pictures that I got from their fit guide that shows that the smaller feet fit perfectly on the top of the metal of the roof and that is how they are able to fit the rack.

  • We don't have the drawings you are looking for, but if you check out the pictures I attached you will see that both the Draw Tite part # 75234 and the Curt # C13234 do not extend out past the rear bumper at all. Since you prefer the hidden cross tube the Draw Tite will be the hitch to go with. There isn't a version without the lower safety chain loops though.

  • I can help you find a hitch for your 2016 Ford Edge Sport. All of the trailer hitches offered for your vehicle will only slightly interfere with your power lift gate. The only area affected is right by the hitches receiver, it should function properly as long as you wave your foot not directly below the hitch receiver. I would highly recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 75234 over the Curt hitch # C13234 you were looking at, because of the higher weight capacity and the fact...

  • Securing the front tie down for a kayak or canoe under the hood is common. Thule offers the Hood Loops, # TH529, and Quick Loops, # TH530, so you do not have to attach the hook directly to the edge of the hood. I would strongly recommend using these products. You can also use them for your rear hatch if you do not have a strong attachment point for the stern tie down. I have attached a demonstration video for you to check out.

  • We carry hitches from two manufacturers, Cequent Performance Products, who manufactures Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite and Curt Manufacturing. I would say that in terms of overall build quality and the quality of the finish, the hitches from both companies are pretty equal. In terms of choosing a hitch for your 2011 Edge, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75992 or for Edge Sport models, the Draw-Tite # 75728. The Curt Class III, part # C13067 is a bit less expensive,...

  • If you want a bike rack that won't require you to remove the bikes every time you want to get into the rear cargo area of your 2016 Ford Edge you would want a swing-away style bike rack like the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT. The Chinook is a great bike rack but it wouldn't give you great rear cargo access. I attached a review video for this bike rack for you to check out as well. If you do not have a hitch yet you will need one. The Draw-Tite part # 75234 will be your...

  • The difference between the Hidden Hitch # 87696 and the # 87684 Class III hitches for your 2016 Ford Edge SEL involves how much of the hitch is visible from the rear of the vehicle once the hitch is installed. The entire crossbar portion of the hitch would be visible from the rear if you went with the # 87684. If you went with the # 87696, the crossbar of the hitch would be concealed behind the bumper, and the only portion of the hitch that would be visible would be the receiver...

  • Great news! Yakima has systems to choose from for your 2016 Ford Edge Sport with Vista Roof. The mounting hardware will all be the same but you have a choice between crossbar styles Round, Steel Corebar, and black or silver Jetstream aluminum bars. For this system you will need the BaseLine Towers # Y00146, the BaseClips # Y06102 and # Y06139, then your choice of crossbars: # Y00425 Black JetStream Aluminum # Y00428 Silver JetStream Aluminum # Y00421 Steel CoreBar...

  • A Class II trailer hitch will have a 1-1/4 inch receiver (measured on the inside of the receiver opening, see link). The Thule Apex swinging rack, # TH9027, and all other swinging bike racks fit a 2 inch receiver opening. Measure your receiver to determine which size you have. If you determine that you have a 2 inch receiver opening then you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If that distance...

  • There are a couple of things that can lead to the tires wearing on the inside only. Basically what is happening is the top of the tire is leaning in towards the trailer causing most of the weight to ride on the inside. This pretty much means the axle is bent, especially if both sides have the same problem. If it were just one side, there is a chance that is just the spindle that is bent. It will keep wearing on the inside until the issue is resolved and that could mean a new axle. You...

  • The reason the Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # C56160 has a power wire is to protect the delicate tail light wiring circuits of your vehicle from being overloaded. The Curt Trailer Harness # C56160 that you referenced uses your tail light circuits as signal wires and then draws the power to illuminate the tail lights of your trailer directly from your vehicle battery through the battery wire of the box.
