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. This is a really great way to have all the benefits of a gooseneck without tying up the entire bed of your vehicle. This can also be converted right over into a fifth wheel, using part number C16210. 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'll allow you to take your old seats from torn and tattered to practically brand new. As you can see, it's going to be a complete coverage for your bucket seats. 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.











Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2011 Gmc Sierra - Curt

Today on our 2011 GMC Sierra we are going to be taking a look at and installing the Curt Double Lock Flip and Store Under Bed Gooseneck Hitch with install kit. Part number C607-604. What sets apart this hitch from the rest of them, it's got a double locking pin, where most of them only have one pin that goes through this one has two. It's going to keep your load extra secure. The reason you want this product is that fact that it only has the four holes that you are going to drill for your safety chain loops and one four inch diameter hole in the bed. Everything else is a bolt on using existing holes. Now your trailer ball is a 2 and 5/16 that is chrome plated along with the nice ring along the outside.



CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors Installation - 2011 GMC Sierra

Today in our 2011 GMC Sierra, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors, slip on for the driver and passenger side, part number CM10900. These are also available separately. For the driver's side, it'd be part number 10901 and for the passenger's side would be part number 10902. You can see right now, we're in the field of vision of your original mirror. When we step to the outside, I'll be visible in the field of vision of the accessory mirror. Here's what they're going to look like installed. These are simply going to slide over your factory mirrors and attach with a thumb screw at the back side.



WeatherTech Front Floor Mat Review - 2011 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2011 GMC Sierra, we're going to be taking a look at the WeatherTech Front Auto Floor Mat in black. Part number: WT442941. One of the differences you're going to notice in this WeatherTech as opposed to the other ones that we sell on our site is that this one's going to give you a lot better coverage all the way across the front of your vehicle and keep it nice and protected. As you can see, it's form-fitting. It's going to fit nicely on the contours of your vehicle. These channels are going to allow any liquids that you could possible spill or come off of your snowy or muddy boots .. It's going to channel all of the liquid away into this reservoir in the back here and it'll simply drop out the side over your steel plate of your vehicle.



Putco Mini Halogen Bulbs Installation - 2005 GMC Sierra

Today on our 2005 GMC Sierra, we'll be looking at and installing our Putco Mini-Halogen Bulbs, 315 Bulb, Night White, Part Number P213157L. This is what our light looks like before we put our halogen bulbs in. You notice it's yellow. When we put the halogens in, it'll be a cleaner white look. All right. This our new light.



B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 GMC Sierra

On this 2013 GMC Sierra, we're going to review and install the B&W Turnover Underbed Gooseneck Trailer Hitch with the installation kit. Part number BWGNRK1012. This is what the hitch looks like once installed on our Sierra. You notice we have it inside the bed liner. It works just fine. First off, here's a 2 5/16 inch hitch ball, which can be easily removed by operating the pin on the inside. Pull the pin out and towards the front of the truck. You release the pin and you can take the ball out. If you'd like you can store it inside the hitch upside down.



B&W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch Installation - 2013 GMC Sierra

On this 2013 GMC Sierra, we're going to review and install the custom under bed insulation kit from B&W Companion Fith Wheel Trailer Hitches, Part Number BWGNRK-1012-5W. This is what the hitch looks like once installed on our Sierra. Now aside from drilling into the bed of course to install our hitch, for everything else there's no drilling required to install the frame brackets to the frame. It uses two existing holes in the frame and comes complete with all the hardware necessary to install. This is our handle right here, which is used to operate the pin when you need to use it. Now the hitch has a gross towing limit of 30,000 pounds and a vertical load limit 7,500 pounds. Now always double check your owner's manual or your vehicle to make sure it can handle these kinds of weights.



B&W Gooseneck Trailer Hitch Installation - 2011 GMC Sierra

On this 2011 GMC Sierra, we're going to show you the BMW turnover ball, under-bed gooseneck trailer hitch. Part number BWGNRK1012. We'll go ahead and show you how to operate the hitch. Right now, it's in lock position, so to unlock it, pull on the handle and twist towards the front. It stays open and you can remove the ball. To lock the pin down, simply pull down on the handle a little bit, twist it towards the back of the truck, and it's spring-loaded and locks itself back it. This is what the hitch looks when it's installed in the truck. You'll see a very small footprint in the bed of the truck.

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • For a 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 with the 5.3 liter the towing capacity will be one of the following depending on how your truck is configured: Regular Cab, Long Bed 3.73 rear end, 8,000 4.10 rear end, 9,000 Crew Cab, Long Bed 3.73 rear end, 7,500 pounds 4.10 rear end, 8,500 pounds Extended Cab, Long Bed 3.73 rear end, 7,600 pounds 4.10 rear end, 8,600 pounds Regular Cab, Short Bed 3.73 rear end, 8,200 pounds 4.10 rear end, 9,200 pounds Extended Cab, Short...

  • Since you have a short bed truck, you may want to use the B&W Companion Slider hitch # BWRVK3400. This fifth-wheel trailer hitch, which also adapts your Turnoverball gooseneck hitch, incorporates a slider that gives you an extra 12" of fore/aft movement to ensure proper cab clearance when executing turns. I have included a view review of this fifth wheel hitch for you to check out. If you are pulling a gooseneck trailer you will need something like the B&W Extend-A-Goose...

  • 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...

  • Just to make extra sure, the red wire should be directly next to the blue wire on the harness. The black wire should be above (or below depending on how you are holding the connector) the blue wire. And the white wire should be in the opposite corner from the blue wire like in the picture I have included. When plugged in, the black wire should have 12 volt power. If it does not then you will check the under hood connections and make sure the corresponding fuses are in the...

  • If the vehicle has the factory installed integrated trailer brake controller (ITBC), the tow package wiring that exists under the dash is used to install an aftermarket controller. The wiring is located under the dash, above where the driver's left knee would be. Look for a wiring harness with a white tag on it. The red/black tow package wire connects to the black controller wire The white tow package wire connects to the white brake controller wire The light blue tow package...

  • I spoke with my Truxedo representative, who tells me that they do not offer a replacement velcro brand strip that measures one inch wide. They do offer a strip that is meant for a long bed truck, part # TX1115173 that measures 96 inches long by 1-1/4 inches wide that could be trimmed to length if necessary.

  • For a fifth wheel hitch, we do have applications for the 5.5 ft. bed of the 2010 GMC Sierra 1500, but use of a Sidewinder King Pin is required for clearance. A Sidewinder King Pin will move the pivot point of the trailer back 22 Inches which will give you additional clearance needed to make turns (see Sidewinder FAQ). Before buying a fifth wheel trailer, I would recommend using our Pin Box Conversion chart that shows all the fifth-wheel pin boxes that are compatible with Sidewinder...

  • 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...
