Roadmaster Diode 7 to 6 Wire Coil Kit Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today in 2014 Ford F-150, we will be installing the Roadmaster Diode 7 to 6 Flexo Wire Coiling Kit, part number RN-15267. Here's what our kit consist of. Most importantly, we have our wire here, our Flexo-Coil, which will connect the 7-way to our RV, and then the 6-pull round to the front of our vehicle that we're towing behind the RV. With this 6-pull round connector here, which we can secure to the front of our vehicle, using this bracket, like so. We have our 4 diodes here, that will allow us to tap in to our factory wiring, and not have to worry about a second control box, or module box. This will allow us to use the factory lights on the vehicle, without causing any damage to electrical system because the diodes will only allow current to pass in one direction, from either the vehicle side itself, to the factory lights while driving the vehicle, or the towed input, from the RV. It'll isolate the system, and still power the factory lights. We also have a roll of 4 pole flat, wiring here, to make our connection from our 6 pole round connector to our dio-packs.



Westin PRO TRAXX Oval Nerf Bars Installation - 2015 Ford F-150

Today on our 2015 Ford F-150, we'll be installing the Westin Pro Traxx Oval Nerf Bars. They are part number 21-23935. These cab length oval bars will make it easier to get in and out of your truck while looking factory installed. They offer greater stability than round bars, and have sealed ends to keep out moisture. The sturdy plastic resists UV rays, and fading, and cracking. The bars are made from steel with a black powder coat to resist rust and corrosion.



Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System Installation - 2009 Ford F-150

Today on our 2009 Ford F150 we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, part number TFR1504D. This is what our truck's original suspension looks like. You can see our rear axle taking the brunt of our heavy load. This will result in our rear end sagging while the front end rise is giving us decreased stability, steering, and traction. Afterwards the Timbrens are installed, you can see that our rear suspension will have increased stability. Our truck will have better performance while hauling heavy loads because our truck is leveled out from front to back. You're going to have a hollow Aeon Rubber Spring here. That's going to help compensate for an off-center load, so if you have more weight on one side of the vehicle than the other, it's going to allow it to operate separately from one side to the other.



Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Spring Installation - 2009 Ford F-150

Today on our 2009 Ford F-150, we're going to be taking a look at, and showing you how to install, the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part number F2525. Now, here's what they look like once they're installed. You can see they're going to fit nicely into position, using the bolt from your factory jounce bumper to attach the bracket to the frame, and a couple more bolts that go in from the inside. It's going to be a no-drill design. It bolts on using existing holes in our frame. Now, these are going to help with the load-carrying capacity of your vehicle. They're not going to increase the load capacity, just going to help with the load-carrying capacity that it already has.



Erickson Ladder Racks Review - 2013 Ford F-150

Today in our 2013 Ford F-150, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Erikson Truck Bed Ladder Rack with load stops. Part number EM07706. Now this heavy duty ladder rack is going to let you carry ladders, lumber, and just about anything that's long that you want to put on top of your vehicle. With our adjustable load stops here, you're always going to make sure that they're not going to slide off by just adjusting them in against the sides of your load. It's also going to have these convenient tie down cleats so if you had a large load tied on there, you can just take your rope and you'll wrap it around the cleat to help keep it in place. It's going to have a powder coated finish that's going to help protect it against rust and corrosion and it's also going to have corrosion protected bolts all through. It's going to be a no drill design.



Husky Liners WeatherBeater Front and Rear Floor Liners Review - 2009 Ford F-150

Today on our 2009 Ford F-150 we're going to be taking a look at the Husky weather beater custom model floor liners for front and rear in black. Part number HL98331. These are also available in grey at part number HL98332, and in tan part number HL98333. You can see our F-150 without any floor liner doesn't really have any protection on our factory carpeting. It's going to be really easy to get it dirty and bring down the re-sale value of our vehicle. We're going to go ahead and put in some Husky liners. Just going to take it and slide it up into place. It's going to lay over top of the clip in the floor.



WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2013 Ford F-150

These are also available in tan, part number WT456111, and in gray, part number WT4666111. You can see on our Ford F-250 here with the factory mats installed, we're only going to have coverage in this very small area, so we're going to get dirt and grime into our carpet and get ground in there. If you spill liquids on the floor, it's going to mess up your carpeting. We're going to go ahead and pop those out by pushing down on these tabs in the center and taking out the mat. We're going to install the new WeatherTech mat. It's going to fit over those posts on the floor as well.

It's going to come around our center console and go deep up underneath our seats, and around to the threshold and then back underneath the seats here. I'd also like to point out that it's not going to interfere with the operation of our rear seats.

Today on our 2015 Ford F-150 Super Crew Cab, we'll be installing the Truxedo lo-pro QT soft roll up tonneau cover, part number TX597701. Add a stylish look while keeping your gear dry with the Truxedo lo-pro soft roll up tonneau cover. It has a low profile, aerodynamic design that sets less than 1 inch above your truck bed. It conveniently rolls up and stores behind the cab of our truck. To do so, we'll drop down our tailgate, simply pull on the latch here on the drivers side, it releases it and then we can begin to roll it up. Once we get to the end, we'll take our straps, bring it up and catch it on the loop up front.

It can really improve the look of your interior. The raised edges are going to keep anything from seeping over the mat onto your carpet. It comes back around our gas pedal and our brake, and over our footrest and through our threshold. The raised treads and channels are going to help keep dirt, debris and mud away from our feet. Here on the underside of the mat, it features some stay-put nibs.

It's not going to interfere with the operation of our seats. The raised treads and channels are going to help divert fluid, like mud and snow, away from our feet.



Husky WeatherBeater 2nd Row Floor Liner Review - 2015 Ford F-150

CIPA Slip On Custom Towing Mirrors Review - 2015 Ford F-150

Today on our 2015 Ford F-150 Supercrew Cab, we'll be doing a test inaudible 00:00:04 on the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors driver's side and passenger side, part number CM11550. It offers us a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park, or even back up while towing a trailer. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror but not the factory mirror. If I take a few steps in towards my trailer, this is the view that you'd get with your factory mirror. The mirror itself can be pivoted to most angels to better suit our towing needs. It's not going to interfere with the operation of our factory mirror.

Here's what our tire chain looks like as it's laid out on the ground. As you can see, we have this ladder pattern here, which goes across the tread of the tire, and these V-Bar links right here will help dig into the ice and the snow and help give us traction, especially when there's a lot of deep snow or thick ice out there. Now on the outside edge of the tire here, we'll have these cams here, which we'll use to provide a tool to help tighten up the chains, to take out the slack on them.

  • 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...

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...

  • 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...

  • I may have some information that will help, however, vehicle manufacturers are notorious for changing the wire colors on their factory trailer wiring, so the best way to determine the function of each wire is by testing.
