Hopkins Back Up Camera Installation - 2009 GMC Sierra

Mechanic: Today, on our 2009 GMC Sierra, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera and Hitch Aligner System, part number HM50002. Here's what it looks like once it's installed, let's go ahead and show you how it works when it's in action. Now, as we're backing up to our trailer, you'll see we have it in our hitch liner mode. As you get closer, it'll start to flash in the green. That's going to mean that we're between 3 1/2 and 5 1/2 feet away. Once we get to yellow, that's going to put us within a 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet. Once we've reached red, it means we're right about under our ball and we can lower our trailer onto our ball mount.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2009 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2009 GMC Sierra we'll be taking a look at and installing the Hopkins Insight Flex Mount Trailer Brake Controller for 1 to 4 axles, part number HM47297. What's going to set this controller apart from some of the others on the market is you're able to put your display where you'd like it in your view, and you'll be able to put your switch in a location that's easy for you to get to to adjust your braking. Our control box is going to be mounted down on our kick panel or in your center console. Here's what it looks like once it's installed. You have your display unit. As you can see on our control panel we're going to have a nice manual switch. We can operate our brakes on our trailer manually should the need arise as you're going down the road or for some close turning situations where you want to apply the brakes to the trailer.



Firestone Air Command II Compressor & Air Tank Installation - 2008 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2008 GMC Sierra 2500 were going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Firestone Air Command II. This is a heavy duty compressor and air tank offering dual function and a maximum psi rating of 150 lbs. The part number is F2168. Our gauge is going to allow us to keep monitor and check our pressures. As you can see we can bring these right down to our minimum operating range or then also because we have that tank you can see we can fill individually and you can really see how quickly it really engages. Most of the time wed be sitting here for quite a while trying to get up to what were at now about 40 psi but with that 120 psi in that tank it really helps to take care of that. A great thing is for off center load were going to have full adjustability of that.



Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs Installation - 2008 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2008 GMC Sierra 2500, we're going to be showing you how to install the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs using the double convoluted design for the rear axle. Part number is F-2-2-5-5-0. All right. Now, we'll head out to the test course. As you can see, before our suspension enhancement, we've got a lot of side to side or what they call body roll. This is causing the weight transfer to the outside of our corner, pulling up the inside of our vehicle.



Curt Double Lock Flip and Store Gooseneck Hitch Installation - 2002 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2002 GMC Sierra 2500, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Curt Double Lock. This is a Flip and Store Underbed Gooseneck Hitch with Installation Kit, rated for up to 30 thousand pounds. Part number is C60712. Now, here's what our hitch looks like when not in use.

We'll pull our cover off, which is included.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2002 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2002 GMC 2500, we going to be showing you how to install the Hopkins InSIGHT. This is a Proportional Flex-Mount Trailer Brake Controller for one up to four axles. We're also going to be using the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Brake Wiring Adapter, part# HM47795. The nice feature of the InSIGHT is that it constantly monitors our trailer, to make sure we have a proper connection. With the trailer plugged in, you'll see this small LED light is going to come on. As long as that's on, you know you've got a good connection with your trailer. If it we're to come loose or wiggle out, for some reason, you'll see that light then goes off. As you see here, our display is going to indicate, in percentage, how of the gain that we've got set we're actually using.



Wheel Masters Eagle Vision Towing Mirror Installation - 2011 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2011 GMC Sierra, we'll be doing a test fit of the Wheel Masters Eagle Vision Strap-on Towing Mirror, part number WM6600. It offers a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, or park while towing a trailer. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. We're here at the driver's side of our GMC Sierra, and I just want to point out real quick that it looks complicated, but it's actually a really easy installation. The top of our platform sits in our window well, and the belt comes down on the outside of our door and hooks to the bottom. The knob right here allows us to adjust our angle so we don't obstruct the view of our factory mirror.



Clazzio Perforated Leather Seat Cover Installation - 2011 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2011 GMC Sierra, we'll be installing the Clazzio Perforated Leather Seat Covers in light gray, part number L-EAGMB7511LLL.Also available in the color tan beige, part number L-EAGMB7511TTT, and in black, part number L-EAGMB7511BK.

It fits nicely around our backrest and seat, and tucks in completely around out trim. It also provides complete coverage for our headrest. This kit comes complete with everything you need to cover both front seats.



Cipa Dual-View Clip-On Towing Mirror Installation - 2011 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2011 GMC Sierra, we'll be doing a test fit of the dual-view clip on towing mirror, part number 11953. It offers a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely, easily change lanes, pass, or park while towing a trailer. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror but not my factory mirror. If I walk to my right the other mirror provides a larger and closer view. Our dual mirrors are adjustable up and down, left and right, and diagonal.



CIPA Clip-On Towing Mirror Installation - 2011 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2011 GMC Sierra, we'll be doing a test fit of the Cipa clip-on towing mirrors, part number 7070. It offers a wide field of view that's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, or park, while towing a trailer. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror, and not on my factory mirror. Our mirror can be rotated 360 degrees, and can be angled any direction. You can see, it's not going to interfere with the operation of our factory mirror, and we can also still fold it in. First thing we want to do is make sure that our straps are undone, and that our arms are opened up, ready to clip on to our housing.



Resse 5th Wheel Quick Install Base Rail Kit Installation - 2008 GMC Sierra

Today on this 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD, we're going to review and install the Reese Quick Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit for Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitches; part number RP56004-53. I think one of the best details about this hitch is that, since we've seen the bolts are on the outside here, on a conventional Quick Install Kit, the bolts are on the inside, which is okay to get to. You still have to fight around the heat shield here, and here to get access to the bolts; but on the other side, the driver's side, you have a bolt that's really hidden by the gas tank and it's really tight quarters, and it's just really no fun to install. With this one, you don't have to worry about that at all. It takes away all those headaches. Now, if your truck has a drop-in bed liner, I think this is a good companion to that if you're going to put your fifth wheel hitch in there with it. These rails actually will stick up higher than the bed liner.



Bestop TrekStep Truck Bumper Step Installation - 2013 GMC Sierra

Today on this 2013 GMC Sierra, we're going to review and install the Bestop Truck Step Truck Bumper Step, part #B75300. This is what the truck step looks like when it is installed on a Sierra. Right now it's in it's retracted position, so it's stowed up and out of the way. When we need to use it, all I got to do is push down on it, a little bit of pressure from the back, and it pops right out. Then we can use it to get into our truck bed. When we're done using it, pressure from the bottom and it pops right back up. Unlike other steps that rely on your hitch, this one is off to the side, so you can still use your favorite hitch accessories.





GMC Sierra Questions

  • Reese is a leader in the towing industry and we sell more Reese hitches than any other brand. It is height adjustable from 14-1/2 to 18 inches. The jaw on the Reese hitch is a double jaw style. This is a safe and secure style. Only the single hook is considered to be better. It has a double pivot head. The next step down is the Pro Series hitch, # PS30855. This is a very economical hitch aimed at the first-time 5th wheel trailer owner. It is height adjustable from 13 inches...

  • The first thing you will need is a battery and a battery box. The wiring for the light will need to be connected directly to this battery via a switch that you can get at a hardware store if the light does not already have a switch. Or you can install a new light that has a switch like the Trailer Dome Light with Switch and Aluminum Base, # IL61CB. Mount the switch in the trailer, route the wiring from the light to the switch, and then from the switch to the battery. If the...

  • The 2,600 lb axles on your Load Rite boat trailer are likely de-rated 3,500 lb axles, so you should have no problem using 3,500 lb brakes and drums. The important factor to consider in this situation is that the brakes match the brake mounting flange on your axle and that the hubs/drums match your spindles. Almost all 3,500 lb brake assemblies require a 4-bolt brake mounting flange. The bolt holes on the brake mounting flange should be 2-7/8 inches apart on center. If your...

  • In my opinion you are going in the right direction with a frame mounted receiver. The only advantage to a weld on application is that, if welded properly, the attachment point, weld, will be stronger than the hitch or trailer frame steel and one of those two would have to fail before the weld would break. Bolt on installations are easier to install and are rated for the same capacities as most of the weld on models, and many of the hitches offer both options. For bike racks...

  • Yes, there are fifth-wheel to gooseneck adapters and we do carry them. Gooseneck hitches are typically used to haul construction or agricultural trailers and fifth-wheel hitches are mainly used to haul campers. Gooseneck hitches are usually rated to haul 25,000 to 30,000 pounds, some fifth-wheel hitches are capable of doing the same, but other fifth-wheel hitches are rated lower. When towing, your towing setup is only as strong as the weakest towing component, whether it is...

  • The brake controller port on your 2005 GMC Yukon Denali will be located in the black junction box, which is under the dashboard and to the left of your steering column, right above the carpet. The plug in point will be the second port from the left, on the top row. I have included a link to instructions for a brake control wiring adapter # 3015-P that plugs in at this same point, if needed. If you do not already have a brake controller, I would recommend the Prodigy...

  • We sure do! The Draw-Tite # 65068 and the Curt # C31071 front mount receivers are a fit for your 2015 Sierra 2500. The Draw-Tite model isn't a fit for Denali models, and will require you trim the fascia where the front license plate is located in order for the receiver tube to pass through the fascia (see diagram.) If you live in a state where a front plate is required, you'll need a # 5443 front plate relocation bracket. The Curt model will install with the receiver tube exiting...

  • While we don't have pictures of the two hitches you referenced installed on the exact same body style as your 2009 GMC Sierra 2500HD I can assure you that both hitches will install and look exactly like the two pictures I attached. They will basically both hang just below the rear bumper like your factory hitch does except the Curt will hang a little bit lower. I attached install videos for both hitches for you to check out. Now both of these hitches would have the capacity...

  • There should be a sticker or a stamping on the OEM pin box of the 2003 Fleetwood Prowler 275 CKS that will list the number pin box that is on the trailer. If you cannot find the number you can use the measurements of the bolt holes of the pin box to determine which one you have. I attached an FAQ on how to do this for you to check out also. Once you figure out which pin box you have you can check the FAQ I attached that has a chart that shows the correct Sidewinder to get...

  • On your 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE, when installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part # 90885, you will need to activate the brake controller power post under the hood with a 30-amp fuse in the correct slot in the power distribution box. Also, to activate the 12-volt power lead post under the hood you will need a 40-amp fuse in the correct slot in the power distribution box. Most vehicles are already equipped with the fuses for the brake controller power post and...

  • In order to install a different 5th wheel or gooseneck installation kit in your 2013 GMC Sierra the old one, # C611-605, would have to be completely removed. The alternative is to keep the gooseneck hitch you have and use the X5 adapter, # C16220, and a hitch that fits in above the bed 5th wheel rails such as the Curt Q24, # C16546. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you.

  • If the pin weight (the weight pushing down on the 5th wheel hitch) is too high or too low, more than 20 percent of the gross trailer weight or less than 15 percent, it could cause the see-sawing problem you are having. The pin weight should be 15 to 20 percent of the gross trailer weight, loaded and ready to tow. You can reduce the pin weight by moving items within the trailer further back away from the front of the trailer or increase it by moving items forward. I have included...

  • Since your 2001 GMC Sierra came with a factory installed 7-way trailer connector, GM should have already completed the connections under the hood at the fuse box. However, we have found that GM did not complete the wiring on all trucks, even if they came with the factory trailer wiring. If you plug in your brake controller using a plug-in style wiring harness, like part # 3025-P for Tekonsha brake controllers, and the brake controller does not power on, then the wiring under...

  • You might have a port on your truck, driver side, to the left of the emergency brake pedal in a power distribution box. If so, you can just plug in wiring adapter # 3025-S and match the colors on the other end to the brake controller. To complete installation and to activate the tow package (if it has not been done already) there are some connections that need to be made under the hood. I have included an FAQ explaining the process below. Wire colors are not an exact science,...

  • On your 2009 GMC Sierra that is equipped with a tow package, the wiring to install a brake controller is already ran from the factory and a plug-in adapter is not needed. You will find a bundle of wires below the dash to the left of the brake pedal. The wires should be taped up and tucked up and out of the way. There should also be a label on the tape of the functions of each wire.You will want to connect these wires to the wires coming out of the back of the brake controller...

  • In the under hood accessory fuse block there are two power posts on the engine side of the block. The post closest to the front of the truck should have a wire connected to it that runs back to the factory trailer connector and provides 12 volt power at the 1:00 position as you have stated. If there is not a wire present at this location, you may need to run a 10 gauge wire and splice it into the black wire at the back of the vehicle to provide power. If the wire is there,...

  • To install a fifth wheel hitch on your 2010 GMC Sierra 1500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed, you will need to use a fifth wheel hitch with a slider. The slider is used to eliminate clearance problems between the truck cab and the fifth wheel trailer on slow speed turns. The Reese 16K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # RP30047 you have referenced is a fixed hitch and will not give you the clearance you will need to tow a fifth wheel with a 6-1/2 foot bed. I would recommend the Reese 16K Fifth Wheel...

  • Thank you for the compliment. Yes, the pilot hole size is very important when the trailer uses lug bolts. That means the wheel is a hub centric wheel instead of a lug centric wheel. The difference is the wheel that is hub centric will center off the pilot hole size and a lug centric wheel will center off of the studs that are on the hub. You are correct the 12 inch wheels do not have the 2.5 inch pilot diameter. The 10 inch wheels with the 4 on 4 bolt pattern are the correct...
