Today on this 2012 Ford F-150 we're going to be test-fitting the B & W Tow & Stow, 3-ball ball mount for 2" hitches with a 7" drop and a 7-1/2" rise, rated for 10,000 pounds, part number BWTS10049B. We already have this installed on our vehicle, and the first thing I'd like to point out is this pin and clip that we have attached to the 2" hitch with, does not come with the ball mount. You can find it on our website though, it's part number PC3. Obviously, one of the advantages to this product is the fact that we can use three different ball mounts to accommodate different loads and different trailers that you may have. To do this, you can switch it out by pulling the pin and clip here. Right now we have it in the 2" ball position. Pull the pin and clip, you simply rotate it, and at this point we'll be at the 1-7/8" ball.

To tie those down there's going to be two loops up at the top on either side and you can use a wide variety of straps to do so. With it in this position, I'm going to go ahead and give you some measurements now.

On the front in the center line of the wheel going straight up to top of the wheel arch here we're looking at about 37 1/2 inches. On the back, once again following the center line of the wheel up to the top of the wheel arch we're looking about 39 1/2 inches.

They're also available in tan, part number WT452951 and in grey, part number WT462951. As you can see our vehicle without our WeatherTech floor mat, it's not going to cover your center transmission hump here, and your factory floor mat is only going to cover this small area. It doesn't go up underneath your pedals and its not going to cover your sill to help keep the dirt and debris off of your carpeting. We can go ahead and put it on the floor mat, kind of have to twist it into place so it goes underneath our seat in the front here. Then we'll tuck that underneath out pedals. Now we'll snap it onto our factory floor mat clips, slide it up and snap it down.

  • A Sidewinder and a Revolution are the same thing. It is called a Revolution when it comes as OEM equipment on a trailer. That is the only difference. To determine if the Revolution offers enough extra clearance for your truck and trailer, there are some measurements to look at. First, measure from the center of the hitch jaws to the back of the truck cab and add 22 inches (length of Revolution extension). Then, measure the width of the trailer overhang and divide by 2 to get...

  • There are a couple different ways to raise the ride height of your trailer, but before we choose the best option for you, we will want to take a look at a few things. First, it sounds like you are not towing with your trailer level so you do not hit your ball mount on the driveway. A trailer that is not level can create many problems such as ground clearance and trailer sway. If you have any sway control issues with your trailer, then I would recommend moving your leaf springs...

  • The key temperatures to monitor when towing are the transmission fluid, engine oil and coolant temperatures. Each of these fluids will have different ranges that you will want to stay within. For transmission fluid, the ideal operating temperature is between 160 and 200 degrees. If you find that you are running over 200 degrees, I would recommend installing a supplemental transmission cooler, like part # D13504, if you do not already have one. I also recommend using the Ford...

  • You may be able to use a fifth wheel, depending on the width of the trailer. Since the 5-1/2 foot bed is so short, in turning the fifth wheel trailer can end up making contact with the cab of the truck resulting in damage. The Sidewinder is essentially a hitch extender that will provide enough clearance for some fifth wheel trailers to be towed behind 5-1/2 bed trucks. You will need to take some measurements on the truck and the width of the fifth wheel trailer and calculate...

  • The first step in choosing the correct weight distribution (W/D) system is to determine the actual as-towed tongue weight of your trailer. Anything stowed in the bed of the truck behind the rear axle should be included as tongue weight. For best performance, the tongue weight of the trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the system you choose. The Pro Series Weight Distribution System you mention is designed to operate most effectively...

  • The difference between the plate and fin style, # D13504, and the tube and fin style cooler, # D12904, is that the plate and fin models can cool better than the tube and fin models. You will notice that plate and fin coolers with the same rating as tube and fin coolers are smaller in size. Basically, the plate and fin cooler provides more surface area to extract heat from the transmission oil and also has internal turbulator technology to help the oil to cool faster and prevent...

  • I would try unplugging the harnesses and relays and then plugging them back in as it sounds like the left turn signal circuit is not making contact somewhere and it could be as simple as reconnecting the harness to fix the problem. Next. I would check the vehicle side plug that the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring # # 118242, plugs into. If this circuit is functioning properly then check the wires coming out of the new connector to determine if the power is getting to the...

  • When choosing a weight distribution system, you need to go by the tongue weight of the trailer when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. If you have the trailer at the max of 10,500 pounds and tongue weight is 1,050 to 1,575 (10 to 15 percent of gross trailer weight), that will tell you what weight range you will need in a weight distribution system. The 750 to 1,000 pound system that you referenced would not have...
